The purpose of this study was to investigate how alternative certification programs may affect special education teacher retention. The authors compared the University of Memphis's alternative Special Education Institute program to the university's traditional certification program. It was found that a larger percentage of the alternatively prepared teachers were employed at local school districts than the traditional program graduates . Furthermore, a larger percentage of African American students were employed by area school districts than were their White counterparts. The findings of this study support the use of alternative certification programs.
