BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport's Board of Education has decided to extend its investigation into whether to fire an elementary school principal accused of dragging a student down a hallway.
Carmen Perez Dickson has been on administrative leave from Jettie Tisdale School since the accusations surfaced last year.

Although she defends her actions, the superintendent thinks she should be fired.

At a meeting last night, the Board of Ed voted to look over her track record as a disciplinarian.

The board was supposed to decide Perez Dickson's fate by Friday, but needs time to review additional evidence.
