NISD Officials Fire Administrators, Teacher Over Tests

(San Antonio, TX) -- Public pressure isn't swaying Northside ISD officials from firing two school administrators and a reading specialist. Supporters of Adams Hill Elementary Principal Donald Powers, Vice Principal Karon Wernli and teacher Sandra Villagomez rallied outside a board meeting Tuesday night. They were urging the board to reinstate them. However, the board voted to fire the administrators and reassign Villagomez. They say it's over how they administered a state standardized test to special needs students.
