International teachers in American schools

teacherswithoutIn her new book, Teachers Without Borders?: The Hidden Consequences of International Teachers in U.S. Schools (Teachers College Press), Boston College alumna Alyssa Hadley Dunn presents a case study of four teachers from India who came to the US to teach in urban schools. Their experiences are brought to life through interviews with their principals, district representatives and union representatives, as well as in-depth classroom observations and student commentary. Dunn’s work raises the question: If international teachers face daily exploitation, a lack of personal and professional support, and a lack of pedagogical and cultural preparation, are they able to give urban students the high-quality multicultural education they need and deserve? Dunn is an assistant professor in the Department of Middle-Secondary Education and Instructional Technology at Georgia State University College of Education.
