On Friday, Dr. Dawkins says he assured teachers they were valued employees and they did not violate any laws.
The Louisiana and American Federation of Teachers filed complaints saying the company, Universal Placement International, who brought the Filipino teachers to the U.S. was taking 37-percent of their salaries, threatening their jobs and families.
Doctor Dawkins was not in office when the school board was first in contact with the company but some say that is not an excuse.
The Caddo Federation of Teachers President Jackie Landsdale says "To simply say we didn't know, we'll you're still complicit and I think we all remain complicit. You know when things go on that just don't look right or seem right but because it's not to our advantage to look a little deeper. There's a lesson to be learned there."
Landsdale says the school board is talking about changing policies so this never happens again. One signed up to be a part of the Caddo Federation of Teachers early Friday morning.
43 Filipino teachers are employed by Caddo Parish to teach math, science and special education.
