Globalizing Education

The Post Magazine section does their education issue, including a very good article on how the DC area is importing elementary teachers from the Philippines. The teachers have to learn to say: "shut up" and be more assertive to control their classrooms. They also have to get used to our society. As I say, very interesting.

I'd known that we were importing nurses from the Philippines and elsewhere, but this was the first I'd heard about teachers.
