Elementary school classes taught by certified special education teachers whodid not pass a subject-knowledge test or have not demonstrated subject-matter competency through HOUSSE = 42.8% of these teachers.2. Secondary school classes taught by certified special education teachers whohave not demonstrated subject-matter competency in those subjects = 40.5% of these middle school 7-8 teachers and 40.33% of these secondary 9-12 teachers.B.
