Ventura County University Gets $1.2 Million To Train Teachers To Assist Students With Hearing Problems

Posted on Tuesday, December 6, 2011 4:17pm

California Lutheran University, in Thousand Oaks  has received a major federal grant to train teachers to help students with hearing issues.

The U.S. Department of Education made a $1.2 million dollar grant to CLU’s Graduate School of Education.  The money will help prepare dozens of new credentialed teachers with specialized training for hard of hearing, or deaf students.  There’s a statewide shortage of teachers with training to deal with hearing issues, while at the same time the number of students needing this type of assistance has grown by 26% during the last five years.

CLU is the parent of KCLU Radio.
