There’s nothing wrong with EPISD that two thirds of billion dollars won’t fix. Well, hardly anything.

This from the El Paso Times:

The El Paso Independent School District is one of two Texas school districts that are allegedly not following a new law designed to reduce the number of students who end up in truancy courts, an alliance of advocacy groups claimed on Monday.

In complaints filed with the Texas Education Agency, Disability Rights Texas, Texas Appleseed and the National Center for Youth Law accused the El Paso and Mesquite independent school districts of violating provisions of House Bill 2398, a measure designed to decriminalize multiple absences and encourage schools to intervene before court action is taken.

I suspect the reason the El Paso Independent School District didn’t fix this is because none of the solutions were expensive enough.
