Filipino teachers likely to lose jobs as visas lapse

BALTIMORE - Baltimore County's teachers union says about a dozen teachers from the Philippines recruited three years ago by the county schools stand to lose their jobs because their work visas have expired.

The president of the Teachers Association of Baltimore County, Cheryl Bost, says the teachers are certified and have had successful evaluations, but she says the school board has refused to cover the costs of extending their visas.

The teachers were recruited to fill shortages in math and science.

Schools spokeswoman Kara Caulder says the teachers were aware when they were hired that their visas would expire in three years. She says the school system has met its obligations. The Examiner
