Divided We Fall

Your tax money at work.
Imagine sending your kids off to school, but when they get to the bus they are told they can't get on because they speak English.

Rachel Armstrong sent her kids to pick up the bus as usual Monday, but after the driver let the kids on, he told them he would not pick them up again. He even said he wouldn't take them home that afternoon. They were told by the bus driver the route is for non-English speaking students only.

"It is our responsibility to ensure the safety of these kids and we made a mistake. The kids should have gotten home that day," Dayna Kennedy, a public relations representative said.
The school district has a public relations representative. Boy am I glad to be paying for two seperate tax levies on top of my regular assessment for St. Paul Government Schools.
