Caddo schools hiring immigration attorney

Posted: Updated:

CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - The Caddo Parish schools system is preparing for a possible legal fight over the alleged mistreatment of teachers recruited from the Phillipines.

At the beginning of October, a Filipino teacher talked about alleged high fees charged by Universal Placement International, a teacher-recruiting firm hired by Caddo schools.

"I paid $8,000 before I came here," said the teacher during an interview.

Caddo Schools Superintendent Dr. Gerald Dawkins made public his outrage with U.P.I. concerning possible extortion of these teachers.

Now it has been confirmed that the school system has hired immigration attorney Mark Murov.

The district has scheduled a special meeting for Tuesday, Oct. 13 to make the hiring official.
