Out With 2014- In With 2015

Out With 2014- In With 2015

Like last week, I'll be sharing education news and views intermittently over the next three days, then shutting down for the rest of the week. You can read it all right here, or on Facebook (District 299), or directly on Twitter (@district299).

Thanks to everyone who reads this blog, gets the email, and follows Twitter!

    The hiring process does however involve a telephone interview where on occasion candidates who sound too white are told they don't have what it takes.

    If you make it through that process though, you will then be welcome to the dysfunctional world of privatization known as Taleo.
