Shenanigans Alleged In Texas Schools

AUSTIN (CN) - Two men say the Texas Education Agency fired them to retaliate for their truthful reports of wrongdoing at the agency, including kickbacks paid and/or received with tax money, falsified records, refusal to investigate a suspicious charter school, singling out schools for "random" monitoring, and selling of school credits.

James Catazaro and Jim Lyde say the TEA fired them after they reported these and other suspicious doings to the Texas Legislature.

They are represented in Travis county Court by Joe Crews.
