THUMBS DOWN! AT IT AGAIN. Once again, Mora Independent School District Superintendent Thomas Garcia has stirred up a hornets nest, this time by taking action against the district’s music teacher Joaquin Maestas-Manuel, by suspending him for six weeks for vague reasons. The action has outraged parents, who consider this a personal vindetta rather than a legitimate problem.
The real victims here, of course, are the students who are starting out the school year with a substitute teacher overseeing the watching of DVDs and other mindless classroom activities.
