Accused of changing courses in mid-semester — “Computer Science” to “Cooking,” “AP History” to “Cinema” — to match titles with textbooks (see “Travesty”), Vince Carbino has been removed as principal of low-performing Santee High School in Los Angeles. Carbino will work in an administrative job at the district office while the charges by teachers and students are being investigated. Teachers had threatened to petition to turn Santee into a Green Dot charter if Carbino remained at the school. That’s a potent threat in LA.
