California-based Sacramento Unified School District is now hiring its special education teachers from the Philippines. The decision to hire migrant labor was made after the school failed to recruit special education teachers from the U.S. at the salaries they can pay ($5,700 per month). The rate is below those of several surrounding districts. By contrast, the rate is very attractive to migrant Filipino workers, who earn a lot less ($500 per month) back home. Sacramento Unified believes that Filipino teachers are fully qualified to teach special education.
