nice dr. che garcia.....good answer on the bowie question....or avoiding it. only the bright students get to be in a magnet. not every kid has an opportunity to enroll in one. not everyone wants to go to the bowie magnet school. and if the best bowie kids leave to other magnets how can the scores rise of the lower level kids? you dont make sense and you didnt answer the question

The only one making us look bad is our current school admistrators and boat load of corruption they bring to thos community. They can fire a few teachers(low men on the totem pole) for moral turpetude but let these big wigs get away with family and alcohol abuse.
I say get rid of them and their smoke and mirrors. Dr Garcia avoided answering the question directly and is doing the same with the FBI. Good Luck EPISD.

So what was his answer? I'm not sure what he was trying to say. Looks like more smoke and mirrors by a talented individual. This guy should join the Chris Angel sideshow in staying out of lock up.
Regular ed students are getting shorted services because these big wigs need their money. Tell the folks at EPISD that the free ride is over! Or do we need to vote on it since the board of trustees is on the payroll of the Superintendent.
I think teachers in this town should hang their heads in shame with this type of leadership.

well of course this bum wants the investigation to move on quickly. The longer it takes the more likely it is that they will find that garcia is a bum and is not all about education of and for the kids. If he has not hidden the evidence then he has distroyed it but some evidence remains (witnesses) and it will come out. I hope they don't let the bum resign. He needs to be fired so that all will know how he has hurt students. I would even charge him with back pay for the lousy job he has done!

He is a liar and most certainly not a talented educator. He insults all the real educators by posing as one. He either does not know how to answer honetsly or he is so scared that the truth is finally going to be proven. Go FBI! Go students education.

Every so-called "improvement" has been the result of fraud. Children are being deprived of an education because Administrators like Garcia want to tweak the numbers.

My friend and his daughter moved from the surrounding Bowie during this period. They were low income and finally able to buy a small home in the Riverside HS area. His daughter score 1280 on SAT and now at UTEP. She was declared as one of the students moved for the sake of score improvement. Bowie has suffered from transferring students for years, people moving out of area to improve life. Also many US citizens (not illegals) who live across border just like in Canada, stop attending school for whatever reason and can cause serious record keeping. They have that right ! I believe allegations will be false. Then the taxpayers and episd should sue the senator for the cost. But not before he and his family pay their property taxes.

If her scores were that high, nothing to worry about.

Let's see now, I have heard Dr. Garcia and his 'commending manner' in his way of talking, I have heard the same 'commanding manner' in oh, I know,Dr. Murphy the Superintendent from the Canutillo School District! I wonder if they have anything in common?

Yes, Grasshopper they are both disciples of theft from the community and the biggest liars since Hitler and his propaganda machine.
Clearly their forms of leadership involve profit for them and mistreatment of those under them. The community is going without the services they once had because leadership can't part with its money. Please wake up El Paso-Vote this admistration out! Trustees won't do anything they are owned by Dr Garcia as he abuses them too.

Did you all see garcia on the news yesterday and this morning. He is now saying that if "we (he) did anything WRONG (Yes he DID) then we want to fix it" Looks and sounds to me like he knows he is going to get caught with his hand in the cookie jar = BUSTED! Fire the bum and then elect new trustees, the ones we have now can't be trusted with the cookie jar (our kids education and our tax $$$).
