Citing the school district’s “exemplary rating” by the Texas Education Agency and a “zero-percent dropout rate,” Deputy Van Duyne attacked the validity of a federal civil rights survey by Carroll ISD.

“Voting against Democrats and liberal policies is not illegal and does not guarantee a federal poll, and I stand with parents, students, and local leaders to shed light on this overachievement. parents, “she said in a statement.

Van Duyne wants to know what initiated the civil rights investigation and how much it will cost.

Carroll ISD inspector Lane Ledbetter released a video statement today saying the 3 racial and sexual complaints that will be investigated were filed in the spring by an activist group.

He says the district has made changes since then.

“We don’t tolerate discrimination or bullying or bullying because we won’t tolerate it and we feel that what we put in will address many of the concerns I’ve heard,” said Inspector Ledbetter.

The inspector said he would listen to some recommendations that come from the investigation.

Both U.S. senators from Texas, Cruz and Cornyn, signed Van Duyne’s letter to the Department of Education questioning whether political motives drive it.
