Cos Cob Elementary School Assistant Principal Jeremy Boland appeared to admit discriminating on basis of age, religion, political ideals in hiring.
Boland discussed efforts to teach students how to take “progressive” approaches to issues.
“You’re teaching them how to think,’ he said. “It doesn’t matter what they think about. If they think about it in a logical progressive way, that becomes their habit.”
In video-journalist’s attempt to clarify statement, Boland said, “The open minded, more progressive teachers are actually more savvy about delivering a Democratic message without really ever having to mention politics.”
Boland reportedly placed on immediate leave after video release.
