Greenwich, Connecticut – Jeremy Boland, Assistant Principal of Cos Cob Elementary School admitted he discriminates against hiring Catholics.
Boland said he prefers hiring progressive teachers under the age of 30.
“Believe it or not, the open-minded, more progressive teachers are actually more savvy about delivering a Democratic message without really ever having to mention politics,” Jeremy Boland told an undercover PV journalist.
Jeremy Boland revealed how he ‘gets away’ with not hiring Catholic teachers
“So, it’s subtle. They [teachers I hire] will never say, ‘Oh, this is [a] liberal or a Democratic way of doing this.’ They’ll just make that the norm — and this is how we handle things, it’s subtle…That’s how you get away with it.”
Boland wants to ensure the students vote Democrat in the future.
Boland was placed on administrative leave, according to Connecticut 12 News.
News 12 Connecticut reported:
An assistant principal in Greenwich is on administrative leave after he claimed to avoid hiring conservatives and Roman Catholics in a secretly-recorded video.
The clip was released by Project Veritas, a conservative group specializing in undercover stings.
Jeremy Boland is the assistant principal at Cos Cob School. In the edited 12-minute video, apparently shot at an outdoor restaurant in July, an unidentified woman asks Boland about who he hires – and why.
In a statement, Greenwich Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Toni Jones said:
“Late last evening, we were made aware of a video that had gone viral with a current administrator from Cos Cob School. We intend to do a full investigation and until that time, we will not make any public statements. We ask that you respect the investigation process during this time.
We do not, however, support any opinions that promote discriminatory hiring practices based on race, religion, gender, or age in any way, and we want to remind our entire community that our curriculum policies and procedures are strictly enforced by our Board.”
Some parents found the video highly disturbing.
“People talk about diversity and inclusion all the time,” said Christopher McCormick, whose son is starting kindergarten at Glenville School. “I feel excluded as a result of what he did.”
