Default US Teacher Shortage

I just saw an article on CNN about our teacher shortage in US. Nationally according to the article 112,000 teachers short. The article was focused on Arizona and recruitment of Philippine teachers to help fill the gap of 7000 vacancies statewide.

No surprise there - teachers in the US work two or three jobs in order to pay the bills - salary is atrocious.

In my district salary levels are as follows:

Elementary School Teacher Average $64,020 Range $41,470 - $88,780

Middle School Teacher Average $63,110 Range $43,170 - $87,490

Not bad for a job with 16 weeks vacation and in many schools a 4.5 day week.

The article I saw about Arizona they were importing Philippine teachers to fill shortages. Visa type unknown and was not addressed.
