I think what everyone is missing out here is the potential advantage of 
using the H2B temporary visa program to solve this problem. Temporary 
teachers can be brought in under H2B for a tiny fraction of the cost of 
using American citizens; minimum wage (with housing, transport, etc costs 
deducted), no benefits, no time off, and temporary so the issue of 
seniority or raises would be moot. Many third world nations speak some sort 
of English, e.g. Jamaicans, Sri Lankans, etc, so there's no language 
barrier to be concerned about; the young people would probably like to pick 
up such an accent in fact. Third world expectations and norms can be 
instilled in the youngsters and thereby discipline their future wage 
demands, thus sparing the taxpayer now and forever.
