Enrolment up in SFU early learning, special education programs

April 8, 2011

Despite a well-publicized shortage of available teaching positions in BC, enrolment in Simon Fraser University's 12-month teacher-training program reflects just a small decrease in enrolments, from 544 students in 2009 to 527 in 2010. Enrolment has surged, though, in 2 post-baccalaureate diploma programs: Early Learning and Special Education. Enrolment in Early Learning has risen from 9 students in summer 2008 to 31 this summer. Special Education enrolment has increased from 39 students in summer 2008 to 59 this summer. SFU News
