International teachers fill district shortages
from District Administration Magazine
At the end of last year, Superintendent Shannon Goodsell of Casa Grande Union High School District in Arizona had 19 teacher openings, in part due to turnover and newly-retired teachers, and zero applications. After embarking on a statewide search, administrators in the rural district of 3,800 students found many other Arizona districts faced the same problem. And as of mid-October, some 500 vacant teaching positions were posted on the state Department of Education job board. When a national search attracted only a few new candidates, Casa Grande administrators hired a consulting agency to search for teachers overseas.
