Breaking: Connecticut Assistant Principal Admits to Discriminating against Catholic, Conservative Applicants in Undercover Video

An assistant principal in Greenwich, Conn. was captured on undercover video admitting that he discriminates against conservative and Catholic teaching applicants so that he can better advance “subtle” progressive indoctrination in the classroom.

Jeremy Boland, Assistant Principal of Cos Cob Elementary School, a public school, told an undercover Project Veritas reporter that he oversees the hiring of faculty and rejects applicants who espouse conservative or Catholic beliefs, are older than 30, or sympathize with concerns about parental rights in education.

“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,” Boland said.

When asked what he does when he learns a candidate is Catholic, Boland replied, “You don't hire them.”

He reiterated that he would never hire a Catholic, “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.”

There is a conservative, 40-year-old, female teacher at Cos Cob who is “stuck in her ways,” Borland said. Because it’s difficult to terminate a tenured teacher, “I'll never be able to fire her, and I'll never be able to change her,” he said. “So, I make an impact with the next teacher I hire.”

Cos Cob, according to Boland, specifically welcomes progressive teachers who will intentionally shape the minds of students with their ideology.

“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 told the journalist.

Once they’re teaching in a classroom, the progressive hires are careful about gradually inculcating their politics into school curricula.

“So, it’s subtle. They will never say, 'Oh, this is a liberal or a Democratic way of doing this.' They’ll just make that the norm ,” he said. “This is how we handle things, it’s subtle…That’s how you get away with it.”

Boland also evidently holds it against applicants if they show support for parental rights during the interview process.

“So someone sides with the parent, then what?,” the reporter asked. Boland said: “They don't get the job.”

Many Republican candidates have embraced parental rights as part of their platforms this year and have affirmed that parents are major stakeholders in education who must be represented.

Boland and administrators at Cos Cob did not immediately respond to request for comment.

At Cos Cob, there is also no tolerance for teachers who address students according to pronouns that correspond with their sex rather than their gender preference, Boland suggested.

“So, if you have someone [teacher] who is hardcore religious or hardcore conservative, they will probably say something detrimental to the effect, ‘Well, I don't think kids have enough knowledge to make that decision [gender identity] at this age,'” Boland said. “You're out. You're done.”

Boland’s confessed religious and age-based discrimination likely violates Connecticut law.

A Democratic-dominated state, Connecticut has been a hot bed for critical race theory initiatives and progressive pedagogy, though the push has been met with significant parental resistance over the last two years. Earlier this month, the Greenwich Country Day School (GCDS), a private school in Greenwich, Conn., hosted a back-to-school event that was exclusive to families who identify as a racial minority.
