UPrep Governing Board President Cowers

Posted by novometro on July 11, 2007

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Wednesday that Uprep’s governing board officially denies accusations of cheating on standardized tests, grade fixing, and intimidation of staff and students. It’s telling that the document delivered to OUSD last week was signed simply “Governing Board.” No one wants to go on the record defending the school. Prentice Deadrick, the board’s president and an associate of Isaac Haqq from his days in Pasadena, refused to speak to the Chronicle. He refused to speak to me last week.

The person responsible for overseeing $3 million of taxpayer money last year runs from his responsibility. It’s easy to see why he and Mr. Haqq are friends. They have a lot in common.
