And that POS Garcia only got 3 1/2 years and $180K fine.

Should have been 10 years minimum on each count.

Maybe EPISD should file a civil suit on him to take everything he (home, back accounts, retirement accounts, shirt off his back, etc.) has considering the damage he did.

Oh wait,

That would mean the EPISD trustees would also be accountable. What a concept.

Garcia may be a scapegoat, but at least someone got punished. In snafus like Fast and Furious, Benghazi and others, Obama can point the finger at anyone on his staff and all willingly assume the role of scapegoat. Someone must have told them that no one will be punished. The media thinks it's great for him to find "culprits," but they ignore the fact that confessed felons are going scot free.

Wait a minute now, if you all think Garcia committed these crimes all by himself, your sadly mistaken. What about his co-conspirators? Why hasn't anything been said or done about them? Shouldn't they face the wrath of the law themselves? Also, if you lemon-heads think for one minute that Bowie was the only school to omit certain "students of questionable intellect" from taking the taks or stars tests, your sadly mistaken. Many schools in all districts in El Paso do not allow kids from Mexico or unintelligent kids from taking these tests because it would mean lower overall test scores, which translates into less money from the state to these schools/districts and ultimately, no bonuses for the fat-cat administrators and/or principals. For those of you who say prove it, I say: I'm staying out of this one. You all figure it out.

I already did but nobody listens to me. It was not just El Paso but rather the whole state with many school districts using the holes in the Accountability system to scam TEA. But they are easy to scam.
