Potter proposes tax for schools
Mayor Tom Potter proposed an almost 1 percent income tax for city residents to help pay for local schools.
Blah blah blah, read the story for the details. So, we know that the tax is "for the children" right? What do they get out of it? A quick look at what positions the Portland Public Schools are hiring for is very insightful.
ESL /Bilingual Teacher - All Levels TEMP 05-06 School Year
Foreign Language Spanish (ML/HS) 05-06 SY
Elementary (Spanish Immersion) - 05-06SY
Elementary (Spanish Immersion) - 06-07SY
Foreign Language Spanish (ML/HS) 06-07 SY
Bi-lingual Educational Assistant (Applicant Pool)
So maybe the tax of for the illegal alien's children who don't speak English. But other than the endless supply of bi-lingual educaters the schools are running lean and mean. It's not as if they are hiring web developers or Psychologists or anything. Oh wait, they are.
Now let's pretend that you want one of these jobs, you know, for the kids. (certainly not for the generous benefits...) Simply contact the HR person.
Did I say "person?" I meant people, all 32 HR people. 32 HUMAN RESOURCES EMPLOYEES? WHY? Duh, it's for the children.
