A former assistant superintendent of El Paso’s Independent School District was arrested Wednesday in connection with a cheating scandal, the El Paso Times reports.
The indictment also accuses the former assistant superintendent and other administrators of attempting to reduce or completely remove Black students from certain schools in order to trick the Department of Education into thinking there were no African-American sub groups at EPISD Priority Division schools.
