State Audit: Texas Education Agency Failed To Uncover Widespread Cheating

Lead in text: 
The Texas Education Agency is creating an Office of Complaints, Investigations and School Accountability after a state audit found the agency failed to uncover a widespread cheating scandal in the El Paso School District.
The state auditor's office has released a report that basically says the Texas Education Agency isn't doing its job to uncover cheating scandals. The report, done at the request of Education Commissioner Michael Williams, says TEA "failed" to do its due diligence when it looked into cheating allegations in the El Paso Independent School District.
