In October, Deion Sanders was fired by the charter school he co-founded. He was quickly reinstated.
Nearly two months later, Prime Prep Academy has once again fired the Hall of Famer.
Via the Dallas Morning News, school superintendent Rachel Sanders (no relation to Deion) made the decision. The chairman of the school’s board disagreed with the move, and the issue is expected to be addressed during a Friday board meeting.
“I never dreamed this,” Deion Sanders said, via WFAA-TV. “I just dreamed of having the best academic and athletic institution in the country, and we are going to have it. We are going to have it. . . . We just have to get this mess out.”
Roughly 75 students walked out of class in protest. After meeting with Deion, they returned.
“This is nonsense. We are sick of it,” Sanders said. “The kids don’t deserve it. Overpaid, underqualified administrators never worked in a school in their life. Total chaos. We have a formula to restore what was the dream at Prime Prep.”
It’s unclear what the formula is. Maybe it entails Deion getting fired a few more times. Inevitably, there will be litigation.
At some point, the Texas Education Agency likely will show up and start poking around, possibly finding enough irregularities to shut the whole place down.
