In order to form a symbiotic society in Japan and to realize inclusive education, which is an idea to learn together regardless of disability, it is urgent to actively hire teachers with disabilities even at school. However, since research on faculty with disabilities is said to have been conducted since the fiscal year 2019 onward, the actual situation has been investigated. And the current situation and issues regarding the employment of faculty with disabilities are almost unclear. Therefore, in this study, based on the viewpoint of improving the QOL (Quality of Life) of teachers with disabilities, we analyze the previous studies related to the employment of persons with disabilities at schools in Japan, and clarify the current situation and academic issues regarding the employment of teachers with disabilities. As a result of the analysis, many previous studies have been found in the area of "employment stability", but they also point out the current situation and it was revealed that further studies are needed. Moreover, in the "physical and mental health" area and the "life stability" area, there were very few cases applicable, and it became clear that research was not progressing.
