CHICAGO (CBS) — An outspoken Chicago Public Schools principal, who has been critical of the mayor and school administration, has been told to stay home.
CPS removed Blaine Elementary School principal Troy LaRaviere for misconduct, months after the school board warned him about critical comments.
CPS officials aren’t saying exactly what he did other than that he violated a previous warning issued by the board of education.
The August reprimand of LaRaviere amounted to a formal censure, and it is often a first step in a process that could end in termination.
LaRaviere posted a response on Thursday morning on Facebook: “Believe it or not, my ‘reassignment’ was only the second most ridiculous thing that CPS did on Wednesday. Wait ’til you hear about the first. I’ll be writing later today.”
