Classroom observation and teacher self-reported data were used to investigate the extent that local and expatriate teachers in the Republic of Yemen differed (1) in their beliefs about what classroom practices lead to higher levels of student achievement and (2) in their actual classroom practices. Findings indicate statistically significant and meaningful differences in both pedagogical beliefs and actual classroom practices. Policy implications for developing countries making heavy use of expatriate teachers are discussed.
