From The El Paso Times: Board members in the El Paso (Texas) Independent School District say they are prepared to do battle with the Texas Education Agency, which taken control of the district. Board members say they'll challenge Texas Commissioner of Education Michael Williams' decision to appoint a board of managers and a conservator to oversee the district of 64,000 students that has been plagued by a cheating scandal.
Reaction: The El Paso Independent School District Board of Trustees plans to consider possible action in response to the state's decision to strip board members of their authority. The board will meet with its attorney to discuss "legal issues relating to appointment of conservator and board of managers by commissioner of education." (El Paso Times)
