We missed the Friday, February 10, 2017 article in the Times titled “EPISD leader’s new contract includes more perks” and thank a loyal reader for pointing it out.
Some of us may be upset with the shell game that the district played in hiding the details. The Times persisted and after three weeks the district finally provided a copy of the contract changes.
Failure to provide the requested information within ten business days is probably a violation of the Texas public information act. Will we see a county commissioner writing a personal letter to our district attorney asking the prosecutor to look into this?
There has already been a lot of public outcry about the superintendent’s contract. The newly disclosed provisions will cause more.
The galacticly stupid comment the superintendent made to the Times when they were looking into the hidden contract benefits will cause even more outrage:
“Cabrera called his position “one of the hardest jobs in America” …
It is hard to imagine that he could think that much less say it out loud.
Any of us could site classroom teaching jobs in his district that are more difficult than his.
It almost seems that the superintendent wants to be fired.
Other than the president of the school board, the district’s board has been quiet about this.
We have an election coming up this May.
We deserve better
