198 more Pinoy educators to teach in US schools

AT LEAST 198 out of the 300 Filipino teacher-applicants who passed the rigid screening early this year that was conducted by school officials from Maryland, United States will fly out of the country in two batches starting this month to assume their new teaching positions offered to them with a promised US$43,841 starting salary even for a teacher with an undergraduate degree.

Quoting a report from Maryland's Gazette, recruited teachers will be distributed in several schools in Maryland, the second largest school district in the US, over the next 12 months.

Twenty-eight of the new recruits will start in Prince George's County schools this month while another 170 will be coming in for the 2008-2009 academic year beginning August next year, it said.

The teachers can stay and teach in the county for six years with temporary citizenship after which they can be allowed to apply for US citizenship or will opt to go back to the Philippines. Sun Star
