Education Agency Won't Take Up Incident Between Dallas Superintendent And Trustee

Dec 29, 2014

The Texas Education Agency says there was no violation of the law in the October incident between Dallas Superintendent Mike Miles and Trustee Bernadette Nutall. That’s when Miles had school security forcibly take Nutall out of Dade Middle School.

The TEA letter was in response to one from the Dallas school board. Board President Miquel Solis says he doesn’t want this issue to linger. " We don't have much time to deal with this issue moving forward," Solis said. "We've got early childhood education issues, we've got the issue of school choice, things the taxpayers on a consistent basis are asking us about. So that's where our focus is going to be."

Solis said he'll schedule a discussion over the incident during a closed session of an upcoming meeting. 

The Dallas school board also wanted the TEA to get an opinion from the Attorney General over the incident. The agency refused and said the issue’s now closed.
