A Teacher’s exodus

A lot has been said about the influx of Filipino teachers abroad. In the past year alone, more than 100 teachers were hired by the Baltimore City School System in an effort to supply much needed educators in the inner cities.

Hiring foreign teachers is a phenomenon that has swept the United States as school systems struggle to meet the federal No Child Left Behind Act’s requirement of “highly qualified” teachers in every classroom. Critics say schools should instead fix the classroom conditions that make it hard to attract and retain American teachers, but urban systems aren’t having much success in meeting that goal.

The Philippines, which has long supplied the United States with nurses, has emerged as a recruitment hub, because of its surplus of education majors and its English-speaking population. FilipinaSoul
