Thanks to an alert VDARE.COM reader in Utah for this: Representatives from Granite, Davis, Tooele and Salt Lake school districts traveled to Mexico City last week to meet with 50 Mexicans who want teaching jobs in Utah
, inspired by an agreement Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. forged during his 2005 visit to Mexico.
But parents and teachers in Utah, don`t worry! They have nothing but the best in mind for your students — if the students are Mexican.
The arrangement is also intended to develop a better understanding of both countries` educational systems, history and culture while helping Spanish-speaking students in Utah do better in school... "We are very happy. We`ve had some great success," [Granite educrat Mike] Fraser said. "What is best about this is they`ve got proven teaching experience and, more than anything, they`re fluent in Spanish." Mexican teachers to buttress local schools:They will help Spanish speakers do better in school; no Utahn is being deprived of a job
