Upset mother claims Prime Prep Academy doesn't have enough teachers

Posted: Updated:

The mother of a student at Prime Prep Academy in Dallas claims the school won't allow her to withdraw her child from classes.

Keshia Singleton says there are no teachers in most of her son's 10th grade classes, and that most days, her son just signs in and waits for the bell.

Ten educators were fired and two resigned earlier in the year at the charter school.

Singleton says staff at the school has been unable to come up with a transcript for her son for multiple weeks, and that she just wants to be able to put her child in a good learning environment.

"They have really failed the students, and it's really not fair," she said. "It's not fair to the students who just want to go to school. They want to learn. They want to go to college. They're not learning the social skills that they need to further their education after high school."

Reached by phone, Prime Prep officials could not tell FOX4 how many vacancies there are, only saying they are interviewing teachers.

A special meeting of the schools governing body has been called for Thursday.

The school, which was co-founded by NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, has two campuses in Dallas and Fort Worth.
