Cos Cob Elementary School Assistant Principal Jeremy Boland was put on administrative leave after undercover footage from Project Veritas revealed his anti-conservative bias. The video recorded him admitting that he would not hire applicants who are Catholic and older than 30.
"I don't want to, because if someone is raised hardcore Catholic, it's like they're brainwashed. You can never change their mindset," he said. "When you ask them to consider something new, like a new opportunity or [a new way] to think about [something] differently, they're stuck – just rigid."
Boland also bragged how he refused to interview older teachers entirely, due to their more conservative viewpoints.
"Greenwich Public Schools (GPS) needs younger teachers. Because [the school district] pays very well, you get teachers from other districts who have been there for a long time that want to come to Greenwich. 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," he said.
"For one position, I think we had 30 applicants. Out of all those applicants, I don't think I interviewed anybody over the [age] of 30. Because sometimes – the older you get, the more set in your ways [and] the more conservative you [become]."
The assistant principal cited a 40-year-old conservative teacher in the school, who he said he will never be able to influence due to being "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. [Using] my instinct for hiring, I've hired maybe four or five people [and] they're pretty good. That's where I make my impact," he told the Project Veritas journalist.
Boland's discrimination of teachers who espouse conservative views concealed a more sinister purpose – the brainwashing of children. (Related: Marxist indoctrination of U.S. schoolchildren now beginning in elementary school… shocking investigation exposes schools as "brainwashing factories.")
"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," he said. "They will never say 'Oh, this is [a] liberal or a Democratic way of doing this' – they'll just make that the norm. This is how we handle things; it's subtle."
"You're teaching [the 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," added Boland. The assistant principal explained that as long as politics behind the messages were not mentioned, parents would not find out.
A spokesperson for GPS shared to LifeSiteNews two emails containing the school district's response to the Project Veritas video that has since gone viral.
In the first email sent Aug. 31, GPS Superintendent Dr. Toni Jones wrote that the district had been "made aware" of the viral video. "We intend to do a full investigation and, until that time, we will not make any public statements," she noted.
In the second email, Jones informed recipients that Boland had been "placed on administrative leave."
"Once again, we do not 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," she wrote.
