CROCKETT, TX â€" The Texas Civil Rights Project condemned the Texas Youth Commission's decision to hire Brent Rumbo to run TYC's troubled Crockett State School facility. In August, Rumbo was forced to resign as the principal of Navasota High School. According to local news reports from the Bryan/College Station area, Rumbo discriminated against minority students, threatened children with an axe, and was stopped by police with a prostitute leaving a drug house.
In Navasota, parents of minority students complained Rumbo discriminated against their children and encouraged them to drop out of school. Minority students complained Rumbo discriminated against them by sending them to alternative schools and using excessive force. Four students alleged Rumbo chased them with an axe after he perceived they insulted his wife, an incident which was investigated by the Grimes County District Attorney. Local news reports also indicate Tyler police pulled over Rumbo for a traffic violation in 2005 in the company of a known prostitute. Rumbo told police he was looking for his ex-wife, who was "turning tricks."

So, after allegations of widespread, seemingly endemic sexual and physical abuse, it seems a little bit of a backward step that TYC has appointed Texas educator Brent Rumbo as the new principal of the scandal-wracked Crockett State School.
Texas Civil Rights Project has described Rumbo's career to date as going "from town to town in East, trailing controversy in his wake. The trail begins in December 2005, when he was principal at Winona High School in Winona, TX. A student blew his own hand off during a physics experiment: Apparently he was packing home-made gun-powder into a metal pipe, which sounds like something Guns and Ammo might call suitable study. According TCRP, Rumbo told the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that the school didn't know what was happening, but his own teachers said that wasn't true. Then Rumbo was picked up by police in Tyler with a prostitute in his car (it's not as bad it sounds: he claimed that he picked her up at a drug house when he was looking for someone else.)

Brent Rumbo | Principal

As of Monday night, Navasota High School Principal Brent Rumbo had not submitted a letter of resignation as the school district had asked from him.
Rumbo, just a principal for a year in the Grimes County community, did not appear at the district's school board meeting Monday.The only mention made of him by the trustees was for an item where salary schedules were approved.Rumbo's salary was pulled from the item.
Since late last week, Rumbo has been on paid adminstrative leave.
Rumbo would not return calls from News 3 Monday.
At the beginning of the last school year, Maggie Lira filed a complaint about Brent Rumbo's treatment of her child.
"I'm afraid it's going to get uglier, because Mr. Rumbo is not the type of person just to quietly go," Lira said.
It says Rumbo, then the principal in Winona, was stopped with a prostitute that he had picked up at a drug house.
Rumbo was sighted for not signaling a turn, but the report says he may have been less than truthful when he said he was just looking for his ex-wife, who he thought was "turning tricks."Rumbo also told authorities he only knew of the drug house through students at the high school.
Members of the school board had no comment concerning Rumbo Monday since it's a personnel issue.
In building their case against Brent Rumbo, concerned residents in Navasota are also saying the district needs to look long and hard at the high school as a whole.For one, the TEA ratings that just came out ranking them academically unacceptable for 2007.
"I know kids who have never been in trouble before who have told me, I've had such a hard time concentrating this year, and I have to relate it to Mr. Rumbo because the previous year, it wasn't like that," Lira said.
