Deion Sanders fired again from Prime Prep Academy
Deion Sanders has been fired again from Prime Prep Academy, a charter school with campuses in Dallas and Fort Worth that the former NFL star co-founded.
Sanders was fired in October after allegedly assaulting the school’s CFO. The CFO, Kevin Jefferson, later changed his assault accusation story and Sanders went back to work. Sanders also allegedly forced out his co-founder, D.L. Wallace.
Now WFAA investigative reporter Brett Shipp says Sanders has been fired again. Shipp says students walked out behind Sanders in support.
Prime Prep Academy was the subject of a Sunday feature in The Dallas Morning News. The newspaper described Prime Prep Academy as a school with multiple problems, one that has several leadership issues that could lead to an audit.
Prime Prep Academy was accused of being financially corrupt. The school also failed to meet state academic standards during recent testing.
