PISD Parent: Principal Called Students Losers

"Losers!" That's what a student in Pflugerville says the principal called him and other students in an overhead announcement.  As you can imagine his mother is not happy.  "When he said losers I just got angry at him" Christian Torres tells KEYE.  He's angry because he's anything but a loser.  The 6th grader has made honor roll every quarter this year and is taking a pre-advanced placement class.  "He's an excellent student" said his mom Keisha Torres.  "Losers" however, is what Christian and his mom Keisha contend Westview middle school Principal Kermit Ward called students.  "Multiple times I asked my son are you sure he said the word losers, and he said yes he said loser" Keisha asserted.
She says this all started when she opted her son out of taking the STAAR tests.
