Report finds 7 more unqualified school administrators received state licenses

The Mora Independent School District in rural Northern New Mexico was marred by scandal last year after a newspaper investigation uncovered evidence that its superintendent might have falsified his résumé and fraudulently obtained a professional license while serving as the chief of the state Public Education Department’s licensing bureau.

The list includes Boris Costa-Guerra, who has been principal of Santa Fe’s Kearny Elementary School since August 2014.
