Open Government Advocacy Project:
Belleville school board tenured employee fired
 

Issue Detail:

 
I chair the New Jersey Libertarian Party\'s Open Government Advocacy Project. I have found that in many, if not most, municipalities and school districts, the public is unaware of significant events that may impact upon their and their children\'s lives. Often, the details of such incidents are set forth in the minutes of a public body\'s nonpublic (i.e. closed or executive) meeting minutes. While public, these minutes are not often put on the public body\'s Internet site and the public is often not aware that they exist. A case in point are the the minutes of the January 9, 2012 closed session of the Belleville Board of Education, which I\'ve placed on the Internet at The minutes indicate that a tenured employee was fired and that tenure charges were filed against him or her. It seems to me that Belleville parents and taxpayers have a right to know the teacherís identity and at least some of the details regarding the conduct that led to his or her termination and the tenure charges being filed. Toward that end, I have requested more records from the Board of Education. I anticipate that the Board will resist my efforts to learn about this incident, but I will post on this forum whatever response I get to my records request. Sincerely, John Paff, Chairman New Jersey Libertarian Party\'s Open Government Advocacy Project paff@pobox.com 732-873-1251 March 3, 2012
