THE STORY: The Ector County School District stands at a crossroads between unrest and resolve following a three-year run of peculiarities, accusations and difficult board votes that reads like a recipe for hot-button issue bickering.


>> “The board is doing better. They are getting rid of their mistakes, Sollis, Gallegos, and Baker. I just hope they finish the job. I am glad for recent events. The inmates really were running the asylum, and I mean administrators, not school board members.”

>> “This whole thing reminds me of a bad soap opera! This “school board”, if we can even call it that anymore, is more concerned with egos than with the educational well-being of our children. If you are not up to the job that you were elected to do, then do us all a favor and vacate that seat so a more qualified individual with school intentions can occupy that seat and do what they are elected to do. Seriously, all of this nonsense has got to stop.”
