Schools may be getting more foreign teachers

Regie Zamora came from his home in the Leyte province of the Philippines to teach math at Meade Middle School in August 2006.

He and 11 other Filipino nationals were hired last fall by a county schools recruiter at a job fair in Cebu City in the Philippines, and it looks like that trip won't be the last time the school system recruits teachers overseas.

Faced with what school recruiters call a critical shortage of teachers available for hiring nationwide, the county Board of Education is creating a new policy to govern the hiring of foreign teachers.

It's the first time the school system has created a policy governing the hiring of foreign nationals, said county schools spokesman Bob Mosier.

"We're going to get the best teachers we can find, regardless of where they are," he said. Capital Online
