VERITAS UPDATE: Ex-Connecticut Assistant Principal, Jeremy Boland’s Teaching License on Probation, Ordered to Complete Educator Ethics Class Following Project Veritas Undercover Investigation
Remember Jeremy "You Don't Hire Catholics" Boland?
In August 2022 Jeremy Boland, a former Connecticut Elementary Assistant Principal, was exposed on undercover camera admitting to discriminating in teacher hiring on the basis of age and religion.
Today we can announce: The Connecticut State Department of Education has announced new discipline for Jeremy Boland.
Watch the undercover investigation that led the Connecticut State Department of Education to suspend Ex-Assistant Principal Jeremy Boland’s teaching license & order him to ethics class!
Jeremy Boland met with a Veritas investigative journalist during the Summer of 2022.
During multiple meetings discussing his hiring process for elementary school teachers, Boland admitted that he does not hire Catholics and dubbed them “brainwashed.”
Boland made similar comments about conservative job applicants, admitting attempts to screen conservatives out of the hiring process through a series of questions intended to determine their political leanings.
"I haven't hired one [a conservative] yet."
Boland admitted he sought to hire progressive candidates exclusively under the age of 30.
He expressed desire to create more Democratic voters, and desribed how young progressive teachers are saavy in influencing children in subtle ways.
“Believe it or not, the open-minded, more progressive teachers, are actually more saavy about delivering a Democratic message."
Boland was placed on administrative leave the day after our investigation went viral.
An immediate investigation was ordered by Greenwich Public School Superintendent, Dr. Toni Jones.
While on leave Boland submitted his letter of resignation.
State and Federal bi-partisan lawmakers demanded accountability and called for expanded investigations into Boland’s potential discriminatory hiring practices.
16 Months Later: The Connecticut State Department of Education has announced new discipline for Jeremy Boland.
- Boland’s teaching license is on probation for one year.
- Boland must complete an Educator Ethics Course at this own expense.
The course must address "the legal aspects of hiring, including discriminatory hiring practices or such other comparable course as approved by the department's bureau of investigations..."
The Boland investigation is a perfect example of the power of true investigative journalism.
Our journalists capture wrongdoing on tape showing an individual in his or her own words describing corrupt motivations and behaviors.
We release this reporting to the world and the public peers with us behind the veil to see true proof of corruption in our society.
Our investigation produces an uncontainable fire of press coverage prompting those in power to demand accountability.
Next comes resignations, firings, and corrupt organizations being shut down.
Video by video our journalism awakens the public to the truth, and together we build a more transparent society.
THIS is what Project Veritas exists for. THIS is why we fight to keep this mission alive.
