Newschannel 6 got a tip from one of our viewers that Rusty Brawley is still acting principal at Quanah High School, despite his suspension.
Texas Education Agency suspended his principal certificate after paddling a child so hard it left large bruises.
We called the high school today and asked to speak with the principal. Our call was handed over to Brawley. When asked why he was answering the phone, he said the he was the campus coordinator and "lead teacher."
Brawley told us Gayle McKinley is the high school principal but he is stationed in the middle school.
The TEA said as along as Brawley is not acting as principal, it is legally acceptable but the issue does raise some questions in their eyes. They would not confirm if they are looking into the issue further.
