Teachers from PH Filling Shortage in Arizona Public Schools

A school district in Arizona is fixing the problem of teacher shortage by recruiting from a pool of highly educated and certified teachers from the Philippines. The Casa Grande Union High School District has hired 16 Filipino teachers this year to help ease the shortage of qualified teachers who are leaving the state of Arizona in big numbers. There are about 1,000 teacher openings in the Phoenix area alone as teachers flee the state because of low pay and inadequate classroomresources, reports Inquirer.net.
