Report Says Principal Put Students in Cage to Fight
"A high school principal and his security staff shut feuding students in a steel cage to settle disputes with bare-knuckle fistfights, according to an internal report by the Dallas Independent School District.
Mr. Moten, who resigned from the district in 2008 while under investigation in connection with a grade-changing scandal, denies the cage-fight accusations.
Mr. Moten, 56, is a former Dallas police officer who once lied about being kidnapped and robbed at gunpoint to get out of work, for which he was placed on administrative leave."
As an interesting side note, yes the Texas pledge is recited every day in high schools. A proposed amendment to the bill that updated the language to add 'one state under God' that would have made clear that recitation was voluntary and should not be coerced by school staff failed in the House decisively.
