Most teachers who pursue a certificate of administration have a background working with the general education population. Most programs for administration certification do not require a class that focuses on special education. This paper will investigate two questions. The first question is, “What is the difference between the perceptions of educational administration students of their current skills, knowledge, and viewpoints toward special education and their perceived ideal level for a principal?” The second question asks, “What is the difference between students' perceptions of their skills, knowledge, and viewpoints toward special education before and after an interdisciplinary activity?” This study will administer a pre and post questionnaire and analyze the results to compare the perceptions of students. The results of the investigation can be used to plan a professional development session or provide information that could be used to enhance other administration programs.
