A self described Hispanic Civil rights group and two school board trustees are at odds again. Both are making serious allegations against each other, Daisy Martinez explains.
Brownsville I.S.D. trustees Rick Zayas and Ruben Cortez filed a lawsuit against Carlos Quintanilla, President of Accion America, for defamation, but some residents say the only party loosing in these legal matters are the students. Members of Dallas based Accion America say the group first got involved with district issues when concerned parents and citizens reached out to them for help in looking into issues in the Special Education Department.
