First Filipino teachers used to flock to the US for teaching jobs. Then they were abused by placement agencies. Now they’re getting laid off and forced to return home, not on the basis of seniority or performance, some claim, but because of their nationality. Only those who teach in areas of high need, such as special ed, are being spared. Those who are forced to return can explain to their countrymen how America fires its teachers and overcrowds its schools. That’s the real issue here: not who is getting laid off but why.

2 Responses to Layoffs Go International: US Says Paalam to Filipino Teachers

  1. Joy Ngalob says:

    In the first place they shouldn’t have been lured by the dollars. They should have stayed since a lot of them were employed in the public school in the Philippines. It’s better for them to come home.

  2. Thank you for your comment, Joy. I would like to know more about teaching in the Philippines. Why do you think Filipino teachers flock to the US? As an educator I feel for any teacher who loses his/her job. Kids suffer when teachers get laid off.
