SANTA FE (AP) – New Mexico Public Education Department officials aren’t giving any updates on an investigation into a disgraced former superintendent accused of faking his credentials.
The Las Vegas Optic reports that PED officials declined an invite to a Legislative Education Study Committee meeting to talk about licensure system.
The Optic has also been asking about the status of the investigation for weeks, and neither PED nor state police have responded to the newspaper’s requests.
Mora Independent School District superintendent Charles Trujillo resigned following an October investigation by the Optic that Trujillo faked his credentials to obtain his administrative license.
Two days after the Optic story was published, Trujillo surrendered his education licenses to the state Public Education Department.
