Lawsuit: HISD accuses TEA of trying to 'punish' district
HOUSTON – The Houston Independent School District is accusing the Texas Education Agency of trying to “punish” the district, according to a lawsuit.
Court records showed HISD alleges that the state agency is trying to stifle the First Amendment rights of district members.
The lawsuit comes on the heels of a TEA investigation that accused HISD board members of multiple violations, including interfering with the duties of school administrators and tampering with contracts.
The TEA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
