A decision just released by the Texas Commissioner of Education has the effect of reinstating Joe Palazzolo, whistleblower and former assistant principal at Arlington Heights High School, to his position as an employee of the Fort Worth school district. Which means it is back to square one for the district in its efforts to get rid of Palazzolo. In a 13 page ruling released today, Commissioner Robert Scott ordered that the “petitioner’s (Palazzolo) appeal be and is hereby granted in that there was a procedural irregularity which was likely to have led to an erroneous decision.”
“This case should be reversed and remanded,” the commissioner ordered.
More on this later today.
