Nearly 200 Caribbean teachers, specially recruited by the New York Board of Education in 2001 to work in immigrant communities, are being asked to leave the United States because of a mix-up over their visas. The teachers, mostly from Guyana and Jamaica, have failed to have their original one-year J-1 visas changed to H-1B types in time. The H-1B would allow them to remain beyond the stipulated period when they were recruited in an ambitious program catering to needs of immigrant Caribbean students in the public school system.
