Original story below:
A radical Connecticut assistant principal captured in undercover video by Project Veritas admitted he deliberately hires teachers who advance “progressive” political ideology and shuns Catholic hires because they might be “conservative.”
In Part 1 of Project Veritas’ ongoing “Secret Curriculum” series, Jeremy Boland, the Cos Cob Elementary School’s Assistant Principal in Greenwich, detailed how he engages in illegal discriminatory practices to hire teachers who push left-wing political and ideological objectives.
Boland: You’re teaching them [children] how to think. That’s it. It doesn’t matter what they think about. If they think about it in a logical progressive way, that becomes their habit.
Veritas Journalist: So, you kind of like, gear them to think in a more liberal way?
Boland: Mm-hmm. 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.
Boland went on to say that the liberal teachers engage in “subtle” indoctrination because that’s how they “get away with it.”
Boland: 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.
Veritas Journalist: And that’s how you get away with it?
Boland: That’s how you get away with it.
Veritas Journalist: And how do you make sure the parents don’t find out?
Boland: They can find out, so long as you never mention [the] politics of it.
Likewise, Boland said that to successfully disseminate the left-wing radical ideology, conservative teachers must be prevented from being hired, otherwise they’re difficult to get rid of.
Boland: Remember that teacher I was talking about before? The forty-year-old? I’ll never change that teacher.
Veritas Journalist: You’re what?
Boland: I’ll never be able to change that teacher.
Veritas Journalist: Which one?
Boland: The conservative one, 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. So, my instinct for hiring — I’ve hired maybe four or five people. They’re pretty good.
Veritas Journalist: Okay.
Boland: So, that’s where I make my impact.
Boland admitted to the Veritas journalist that he discriminates against potential hires based on their religion in violation of Connecticut law.
Boland: I’m not a huge expert on religion, but Protestants in this area [of Connecticut] are probably the most liberal. But if they’re Catholic — conservative.
Veritas Journalist: Oh, so then what do you do with the Catholics? If you find out someone is Catholic, then what?
Boland: You don’t hire them.
Veritas Journalist: So, would you ever hire a Catholic then?
Boland: No, I don’t want to…Because if someone is raised hardcore Catholic, it’s like they’re brainwashed. You can never change their mindset. So, when you ask them to consider something new, like a new opportunity, or “you have to think about this differently,” they’re stuck — just rigid.
Furthermore, Boland explained that should a prospective teacher sympathize with parents opposed to left-wing materials, they won’t get hired.
Veritas Journalist: Okay, so someone sides with the parent, then what?
Boland: You let them explain, and then you move on to the next question.
Veritas Journalist: But then eventually [what is] the outcome of that?
Boland: They don’t get the job.
Connecticut Law, Section 46A-60B1, specifically bars discriminatory employment practices. A violation occurs if anyone refuses to hire or employ people “because of the individual’s race, color, religious creed, age, sex, gender identity or expression.”
This damning undercover video definitively rebukes critics who claim that left-wing indoctrination in schools is simply a “conspiracy theory.”
The GPS District released a statement Wednesday claiming they’re “investigating” Boland’s remarks.
“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 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.”
The video is already leading to strong political backlash@GPSDistrict says it will have an update later today on Boland's status with the district. For now, the district released this statement: (3/3) pic.twitter.com/moKLMAug1c
