“Do Not Apply” principal investigated for sexual harassment
Richard Bost, found to have sexually harassed an employee last year, is being investigated for similar charges again. Today’s Daily News reports that the Office of Equal Opportunity is involved.
When Bost was previously found to have sexually harassed an employee, a school secretary, according to the Daily News, she ended up at a different school. Bost was removed by his supervisor, but Joel Klein overruled her and returned Bost to the school.
Someone should ask Klein, or his boss, Michael Bloomberg, why a man who was found to have sexually harassed a woman under his supervision was returned to a work environment with young women under his supervision.
Bost is principal at Fordham Leadership Academy for Business and Technology, one of the first schools added to the “Do Not Apply” list. Until last year’s hiring freeze, new teachers had choices of where to apply. And this was not a good choice. (since the freeze I have not been updating the list, but should start again next year).
