"This report focuses on the little-known but growing practice of international recruiting for jobs in America’s primary and secondary schools. Key findings include:
• an estimated 19,000 teachers were working in the United States on temporary visas in 2007;
• the number of overseas-trained teachers being hired in the United States is increasing steadily;
• essential federal data for studying this trend is not available for public analysis;
• abuses of overseas-trained teachers have been widespread and egregious;
• for-profit recruiting practices are almost entirely unregulated;
• extensive recruitment hampers quality education delivery in sending countries; and
• root causes of U.S. teacher shortages are masked by international recruitment practices."
