Astonished! Sid Miller (Tx House Dist 59) is VICE PRESIDENT of his wife's charter school, Erath Excels

21 June 2007 at 4:38:31 PM

More on Erath Excels, wrote this earlier with links back to some other facts. I called TEA again this afternoon to ask about Erath Excels. Specifically, I was wondering why Erath Excels only passes 11 percent of the kids that go there, IF it was possible for a charter school to cut a deal with, say, TYC, to get at-risk kids, (because that was the excuse Debra Miller used for why the school has such low stats and keeps getting unacceptable ratings), and to verify again whether the state of Texas would be RUNNING Erath Excels, with Miller *only an employee*. Once again, the TEA is a *regulatory* agency over charter schools, and DOES NOT RUN THE SCHOOLS. The children might go to a charter school from the public school system, where, for example, he or she might have been kicked out for performance reasons; that would explain the *at-risk* kids. However, the public schools are not in collusion with charter schools to give them the kids, rather it's that charter schools have *open enrollments* as part of their condition for taking taxpayer money.

I was asking again about the board and almost fell down when the TEA charter school rep told me that the board members she had included SID MILLER as Vice President! Now, I wrote about this after calling the TEA in May, on May 24, 2007, to be exact and he was not vice president then, Debra Shaw was. So, sometime in the last month, the board members have changed and he is ON THE BOARD! I have to assume that the list was submitted to TEA a little bit before this- was Sid Miller on the board already when he told that baloney to the Stephenville paper??? Was he on the board as VP when the Shapiro vote on charter school accountability (which failed) came up? I would assume that the filing to make this change, with the date, would be on record at the Texas State Secretary's office where 5013c filings are.

Update: I called TEA again today, July 5th and was told by a different person that the VP status was from when the papers originally were filed and that the person who told me that on the last call was probably confused by the way the records appeared on the computer screen.  The trouble, of course, is that Texas citizens rely on the people who should know to pass out accurate information. Even if Miller is not, at this present time, VP on his wife's board, I still believe it's a conflict of interest for him to participate in any way in voting that involves lessenning of accountability standards for charter schools.
