Laredo Independent School District hires Linda Theret
The Laredo Independent School District hires a controversial figure for their Executive Director of Curriculum.
Linda Theret was in the middle of controversy a couple of years ago as the principal at McKinney High School. Her daughter was one of the members of “The Fab Five,” a group of cheerleaders that allegedly engaged in “grotesque behaviors” such as racy pictures on MySpace.
Theret resigned from her position amid accusations of providing the girls with preferential treatment.
Some are asking why the Laredo Independent School District hired Theret as the Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction. LISD has released a statement saying they checked her background thoroughly.
The district considers Theret a curriculum expert, and says she brings a lot to the table, especially for secondary students in math and science.
Superintendent Dr. Marcus Nelson was not available for comment.
