Senator Rodriguez Seeks Answers From TEA Regarding EPISD Testing Irregularities
AUSTIN — Texas State Senator José Rodríguez sent a letter to Texas Education Agency Commissioner Robert Scott Friday, following a conversation regarding the state's role in investigating EPISD testing irregularities and what action should be taken by the legislature to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
"It is critical that our local and state officials take action on this issue and ensure that the children of our community do not suffer as a result of inappropriate actions by school leaders," said Rodríguez. "I call on those involved to not forget about the victims -- the children hurt by the actions of those entrusted with providing them a quality education. State leaders must put laws in place to make sure that something like this never happens again."
