Spokeswoman Says Three Storytellers to be Hired at $47,400 Minimum Salary
Amid School-Funding issues throughout the state, The Illinois State Board of Education has an online job posting for Storytellers.
The driving factor in skyrocketing tax bills, approximately 70% of your property taxes goes to pubic schools.
Some believe this is a disguised attempt at public relations for a school system that has been under performing and overspending beyond residents’ means.
The ISBE posted this on their website regarding the position
“Imagine coming to work every day to tell positive stories of teachers, students, and parents who are doing incredible work to drive equity and change for each and every child.
As a lead storyteller, this position lives at the intersection of policy and communications through finding, humanizing, and telling the stories of important work happening in classrooms around the state.
In conjunction with the communications and programmatic strategy, you will identify amazing personal stories and travel the state to build multi-media stories of these individuals and programs in service to educate the public and fellow school districts about the policies and programs ISBE drives.”
