For those of you who don't know, McKinney ISD has a new Chief Financial Officer by the name of Dr. Edd Bigbee, working at the administration building. Dr. Bigbee left Midlothian ISD, 30 minutes southwest of Dallas, and was involved in a lawsuit regarding an African-Amercian school bus driver, whom at the time had 11 years of experience behind the wheel. The bus driver approached Dr. Bigbee in good faith, who was the Assistant Superintendent of Operations at the time, regarding a new employee. The new employee, whom is a white female and also the best friend of the Transportation Coordinator, had only been secretary for just a few months. The black bus driver reported this new lady to Dr. Bigbee regarding her attitude and misconduct over the telephone with him. Again, the bus driver approached Dr. Bigbee in good faith via email and telephone. Dr. Bigbee never returned the bus driver's call regarding the new lady's attitude or misconduct towards him. Instead, Dr. Bigbee sends an email to the Transportation Coordinator telling her she may want to start a file on the black bus driver and document any problems she encounters with him. Dr. Bigbee never tried to have the bus driver or the new secretary mediate or resolve the conflcit. Instead, the African-American school bus driver was fired from the district 57 calendar days later for something that was not against school policy or against the law. Now the bus driver has a pending lawsuit against Midlothian ISD because Dr. Bigbee's action. The lawsuit is now sitting in the 5th circuit court of appeals in New Orleans, LA; and is now one step away from reaching the supreme court in Washington, D.C. Regardless if skin color is the main issue or not, I just think the entire situation was total retaliation. I have learned in these small Texas towns, it is not what you know, but who you know. I guess if you are a pretty flirtatious female and best friends with the boss, that is way more important than being college educated with many years of experience with a school. It sure is awfully funny how the case is one step away from reaching the supremem court and Dr. Bigbee is now working for McKinney ISD all of a sudden. What is he afraid of or running away from? Is this what we want to teach our children? Politics, racism, and favoritism? Why not use tax payers money to teach our children fairness, equality, and diversity? What is your feedback on this? Questions are welcomed and comments appreciated.

very interesting. I did look up the case on PACER which allows you to see every court case in this country. I see he probably quit because he was afraid he was going to get fired. So now McKinney ISD has to put up with his crap. Both Bigbee and the superintendent are from Midlothian, so probably nothing will happen to him. It's all about the good ol boys and who's ass you suck the best

I was wondering if he quit or got fired. In regards to the bus driver in Midlothian, I did hear that one person was being fired from Midlothian ISD and another person was being reassigned; this all had to do with the wrongful firing of that bus driver. So, I wonder if Mr. Bigbee knew he going to be fired, so he became afraid and left, or they just decided not to renew his contract because of what he did to that black bus driver? If this makes it to the media, it won't be the bus driver only losing his job. too bad McKinney ISD has to suffer. But then again, McKinney ISD has its share of politics and racism as well.

That Dr. Edd Bigbee is not worth a poop. I heard he was fired from Midlothian ISD so J.D. Kennedy, his buddy, hired him to work for McKinney ISD. I also heard that Midlothian ISD did not renew Bigbee's contract because he was responsible for a lawsuit that involved an African-American school bus driver. and then I also heard Bigbee quit 30 days later from Midlothian ISD because the bus driver sent the court case to the 5th circuit court of appeals in New Orleans. I doubt at this point anything happens to Bigbee; in a White community like McKinney and when you are friends with the superintendent, politics can be your friend

I've heard some awful things about that Bigbee guy. thank God I got out of McKinney just in the nick of time. I actually did read some of the court documents about how he helped to get a black bus driver fired. I just found it odd that he resigned from the district after the bus driver sent his court case to a higher court in Louisiana
