Last month, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it had reached its new limit on H-1B visas a category U.S. schools and corporations used to hire foreign employees and it wouldn't be issuing any more until October. The new limit of 65,000 represents a 17 percent decline from last year and a whopping 72 percent decline from four years ago. The diminishing number of H-1B visas has strained urban and rural districts (especially those in need of bilingual instructors), which in the last decade have become more active in their international recruitment of teachers. The H-1B program that schools districts use to hire teachers is also used to bring in other much-needed professionals, including foreign fashion models. Maybe it is better for our nation to look good than to think good.
