Hi Rod.

The stamp is a 1951 overprinted consular stamp.
timbre = stamp
escolar = school- (adjective from the noun escuela = school)
examples: autobus escolar = school-bus; aņo escolar = school-year.

I believe that for a period of time Ecuador added these stamps to their
postal services with the tax going to the school (education) system. Around
the same period similar taxes were added with proceeds intended for national
defence, health, and tourism. Hope this helps.

From 1920 to to 1957, Ecuador issued 77 Postal Tax
stamps (Scott RA01 - RA77) and 3 Air Postal Tax stamps
(Scott RAC 1 - RAC 3).

Some were overprinted on various types of revenue
and postage stamps and some had their own design.
In some cases, tobacco tax stamps were so overprinted.

Each series went to a specific purpose. These included:
rebuilding of the PTT headquarters (GPO), the Social
and Rural Workers Insurance Fund, National Defense,
Cancer Campaign, Schools, Health, and Tourism
promotion.

Yuur stamp is RA61.
It is from a 1951 set of three for schools.
(RA60 to RA62)

Thanks Blair,
this image of a "school bus" in New Delhi

Is this photoshop manipulation?
It is hard these days to believe any image is genuine.

It is a tax paid by those who mail letters. the tax supports the school system (ie, public education). Just as a museum tax may be added to your hotel bill to support the city's museums, this tax supports the national school system.
