US will need more teachers in the future

More teachers are needed in some US district to fill the shortage in Math, Science and SPED.
Education Association, the USA's largest teachers union, says many of those districts have trouble keeping teachers for reasons including low pay, disruptive students, and a lack of books and materials.

Prince George's County public schools in Maryland, with a teaching staff of 10,000, have 556 Filipino teachers and uncounted others from other countries. Baltimore public schools have 593 foreign teachers from Jamaica, India, the Philippines and elsewhere out of 7,000, says George Duque, staffing director.

Duque says Filipino teachers are a good fit because English is one of the country's official languages and its
academic system is similar to the USA's.

Other asians countries are also sending teachers in US. The demand may be lesser in the next 3 years so Filipino Teachers should take advantage today.
