Can school districts apply H1B for teachers for me? Is that public schools eligible or private school?
Although a public school can sponsor an H-1B ... there are usually too many political and red tap issues.
Plus, it will be subject to the H-1B cap ... for work starting on October 1, 2020 ... most schools want their teachers in August ... thus, you won't be a very 'attractive' job candidate.
