Amen Corner: CCSD to hire 400 teachers
Thu, Oct 2, 2008 (midnight)
The City of Dallas may soon get a huge boost, courtesy of Las Vegas. Dallas is expected to lay off 700 educators this year, but Clark County, which has the fifth-largest school district in the country, is looking to hire 400 teachers, specifically middle- and high-school math and science teachers and special-education teachers for all grades.
In a time of monumental economic uncertainty, it’s pretty darn cool to see such a massive hiring going on, especially in an area that Weekly happens to believe is more important than any other.
