Jackson's temporary license expired August 27Th. This comes after Jackson was put on administrative leave earlier this week pending an investigation into allegations that he changed hundreds of grades so students wouldn't fail.
Hernandez says the grade changing is part of the reason for the suspension but she won't comment any further other than to say nothing criminal has happened.
