Another Profile in Courage,<quoted text>
"Lolli said he contacted Kohls.“I told Ms. Kohls that it was my understanding that she had hold George Long that we could not hire the candidate that the high school had offered the job to and who Ms. Warner and I considered the best candidate — Tammy Grigsby. Ms. Kohls said,‘Gene, that is absolutely correct.’ I asked why and Ms. Kohls said,‘Gene, when she was the head of Neighbors for Springboro Schools and I ran the board, she was very disrespectful to me.’ I responded by asking whether that was any reason to hold a grudge when we had a quality candidate, to which Ms. Kohls responded,‘Gene, we have enough disrespectful teachers here, we don’t need any more disrespectful teachers being hired, and plus, Gene, she’s too political. We don’t need any more teachers like her.’ Ms. Khols went on to tell me that I ‘absolutely’ could not bring Ms. Grigsby’s name before the board because Ms. Kohls had the backing of the board and Ms. Grigsby would not be hired.”
Lolli's affidavit states that he was ordered to hold another round of teacher candidate interviews, even though he felt Grigsby was the best candidate for the job.
"I considered Ms. Kohls' instructions to be a directive from my employer and I followed them. Ms. Grigsby was not hired as a result," Lolli said.
Who ordered Mr. Lolli not to do his job?
Why did neither Mr. Lolli or Mr. Long ask the other board members how they felt about this injustice? Both men saw board members on a relatively frequent basis. Both men had the phone numbers of board members so contact was not an issue.
Was Ms. Grigsby a better teacher than Mr. Martin, who got the job?
Were our children cheated by having been taught by the "supposed" inferior skills of Mr. Martin?
Because that is the ramification of Ms Grigsby's lawsuit.
