The Assistant Principal at Cos Cob Elementary at the center of controversy due to his discriminatory hiring practices revealed in a Tuesday Project Veritas video has reportedly been placed on leave.
According to News 12 Connecticut, Jeremy Boland has been placed on immediate leave following the expose.
The move comes after Greenwich Public Schools announced in an email that they would be launching an investigation into Boland, after the Tuesday Project Veritas video revealed that Boland discriminates against potential new hires that may be older, conservative, or Catholic.
"Late last evening, we were made aware of a video that had gone viral with a current administrator from Cos Cob School," an email obtained by Project Veritas from Dr. Toni Jones, Superintendent of Schools, read.
"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 reming our entire community that our curriculum policies and procedures are strictly enforced by our board," the email concluded.
Boland had revealed in the undercover conversation with a Project Veritas journalist that he refused to hire teachers over the age of 30, and said that new hires that express that they are conservative or Catholic will get cut from the consideration process, all for the sake of hiring younger, more progressive teachers.
"I’m not allowed to ask their political leanings and they’re not allowed to ask me. So it just comes down to the questions," Boland stated.
"One of the questions that I might start including is something about transgender students, students that are — identify — what is it, non-binary?"
Responding as a potential conservative candidate, Boland said, "Well, I don’t think kids have enough knowledge to make that decision [gender identity] for themself."
Boland snapped his fingers and said in regards to that potential new hire, "You’re out, you’re done."
"I need younger [teachers]… but if they’re older, I’m not allowed to do that. I can’t tell them, 'I’m not interviewing you because you’re older.' I just don’t interview them," said Boland.
"For one position, I think we had 30 applicants. So out of all those applicants, I don’t think I interviewed anybody over the [age] of 30," Boland said. "Sometimes the older you get, the more set in your ways, the more conservative you get."
"The conservative [teacher], who is stuck in her ways. I’ll never be able to fire her, and I’ll never be able to change her. So I make an impact with the next teacher I hire," Boland said.
In regards to religion, Boland said, "If someone is raised hardcore Catholic, it’s like, they’re brainwashed — you can never change their mindset," Boland said.
If he finds out that a potential hire is Catholic, he said "you don’t hire them."
