A teacher has been fired from Samuel Clemens High School after an investigation shows that he asked students to write down information that they remember seeing on the STAAR test.
Gary D. Fagan had worked in the school district for almost 10 years. He was a sociology teacher at Clemens, located in Schertz, Texas. He was fired after someone told the principal that Fagan had given students a piece of paper and told them to write down 10 things that they remembered from the state mandated test.
Fagan, like all teachers in the state of Texas, had taken a sworn oath stating that he would not discuss any information about the STAAR test.
While he may have broken the rules, some teachers think that his actions should not have resulted in him losing his job.
