Somalis Demand Public School Immersion Program

Kayse Jama, who just happens to be the director of the Center For Intercultural Organizing, the non profit that held the “blacks only” #Ferguson meeting a few weeks ago, was at a recent Portland Public Schools board meeting, to demand 5 new full time staff positions for a Somali immersion program.

From the video, seen at Daylight Disinfectant:

“The Five all time positions are:
1. Full-Time Somali Teacher on “Special Assignment”
2. Full-Time Somali Teacher for Native Language Literacy Program
3. Full-Time HR Dual Immersion Specific Coordinator
4. Full-Time Project Manager
5. Full-Time Somali Community Outreach Specialist”
