You're pretty much right on the money. They are usually TA's that have a little bit more education; maybe an associates or a BA(but couldn't past the state teacher tests). They do anything from changing diapers and feeding special education students to tutoring and grading papers.

Paraeducator came from the unions, much like we now call a janitor: Custodian.

So are you saying that these TA's are now union employees? Remember when my kids were in school the aids were parent volunteers and when I was in school there were no aids to the teachers, the teachers actually did their jobs themselves.
