General support for this proposal. 

There is also support for the specific Methods of Teaching Elem Math and Methods of Teaching Elem Science courses.

Clarification is needed on the need for a Specialization for Special Ed - General Curriculum K-12 programs.  Does this apply solely to undergraduate programs?   Will the license reflect the specialization area? If not, what is the point for IHEs to track this information? Concern with how this will be tracked/recorded and relayed to the VDOE from the IHEs.  If required for graduate level programs, then this would be overly limiting to recruitment and admission of candidates.
