Teacher Prep in the Area of Transition/Work

Time and time again, as a teacher you hear from fellow teachers, "They never talked about this in my teacher prep courses". It's time that future teachers be given intensive, hands-on, real-life instruction in what life is really like for our students with disabilities after high school, transition services, and what skills/ courses would be the most helpful for the future. This instruction should include ALL levels of future teachers. We need elementary teachers to understand and get on board with planning for and working towards the future for our students too.
