America’s Newest Outsourced Job: Public School Teachers

Outsourcing jobs is nothing new to the United States. The country has been recruiting foreign labor to do its dirty work for decades — farmers, meat-packers, home healthcare workers, cooks. But now the U.S. needs teachers, and it needs them badly.

The same conditions that have led thousands of U.S. educators to strike and protest — like stagnant wages, underfunded schools, and overcrowded classrooms — have also contributed to a long list of vacancies in virtually every state.

The Department of Education’s database suggests there are 46 states with vacancies (47 if you include the District of Columbia). And each of them has sizable needs that span several disciplines. Some states need teachers in all grades for almost all subjects.

So public schools have been getting creative.

Over the past decade, school districts around the U.S. have quietly begun using the J-1 visa program, which was originally created as a means of temporary cultural exchange, to fill persistent teacher vacancies. And no country has stepped up quite like the Philippines. In 2009, there were only a handful of public schools with Filipino teachers on J-1 visas, according to data from the U.S. Department of State. Today, there are more than 500, spanning at least 19 states throughout the country.

VICE News Tonight traveled to Manila to report on what’s slowly becoming America’s newest outsourced job, and embeds with the first 27 Filipino teachers hired by Chicago Public Schools.

Final Guidelines on connected clients

In November 2017, the EBA published Final Guidelines (GL) on the treatment of connected clients, which replace the CEBS Guidelines, aiming at supporting institutions in identifying all possible connections among their clients, in particular when control relationships or economic dependency should lead to the grouping of clients because they constitute a single risk.
These GL focus exclusively on the issue of connected clients as defined in the CRR, and apply to all areas of the CRR where the concept of group of connected client is used (e.g. large exposures regime, the categorisation of clients in the retail exposure class for the purposes of credit risk), including the EBA technical standards and the EBA guidelines that refer to that concept.
This Technical Note summarises the EBA Final Guidelines on connected clients.
