This study presents a metanalysis of papers on Teacher Education and Special Education fields. This study analyzed the papers presented at Work Group 15 (WG15) of ANPEd (National Association of Post-Graduation and Research) during the 2000-2010 period. Fourteen papers that focused on four different subjects were analyzed: an analysis of the current condition, initial education, continuing education, and evaluation of education programs. The primary observations showed that the main goals of such analysis are the structural institutions that offer initial education especially Pedagogy courses. This study also analyzed the discursive publications of both initial education courses and continuing education, as well as the criteria to establish student-subject and teacher-subject in Special Education field. The evaluation of broader education programs point to ambiguities and conceptual inconsistencies highlighting inclusion. There are only a few observations regarding empirical daily practices for teacher education in the area of Special Education.
