This is a deep dive into a serious problem in Texas. An employee in the Special Education division was upset by a no-bid contract to an inexperienced, unqualified company. She filed a whistleblower complaint to the Office of the Inspector General. She was fired. A lower court upheld her appeal for compensation and protection. An appeals court rejected her claim.

Parents in Texas of children with special needs should be outraged. The employee did her duty to protect their children. The fired whistleblower said, “The allocation of funding for the education of the most vulnerable children in the state should not be left to its most corrupt people.”
