Report Says Principal Put Dallas Students in Fight Cage

Report Says Principal Put Dallas Students in Fight Cage – NYTimes.com.

According to The New York Times, a high school principal and his security staff “shut feuding students in a steel cage to settle disputes with bare-knuckle fistfights.”

An internal report by the Dallas (TX) Independent Schools Districts says Donald Moten sanctioned “cage fights” between students in a steel equipment area in the boy’s locker room.

Moten resigned in 2008 while he was under investigation for a grade-changing scandal that resulted in South Oak Cliff HS relinquishing its 2005 and 2006 state boys basketball championships. The district found that Moten pressured teachers to change the failing grades of basetball team members so they would be eligible to play.

I guess nobody should be surprised by Moten’s performance as a principal, in his previous job as a Dallas police officer he lied about being kipnapped and robbed at gunpoint to get out of work.
