A controversial Catholic educator who advocated students taking part in anti-abortion vigils is no longer the principal of Christ the King School.
Catholic education officials said this morning that Paula Morrison is now principal of Christ the King School, but will not discuss what has happened to former principal David Hood.
“It’s our policy not to comment on personnel matters,” said director of education Robert Praznik.
Hood was suspended with pay for more than a week in October after telling the Free Press that he planned to organize students and parents to participate in anti-abortion vigils outside the Health Sciences Centre as an official school activity. Students who voluntarily took part would receive recognition of the time towards their required community service, said Hood.
He returned to work in late October. (Source)
From a reader: “I’ve just heard from David Hood’s family (the pro-life principal in Winnipeg) and news isn’t good. The Archdiocese and the Catholic schools board have decided (behind closed doors) to fire Mr. Hood.”
If this is true, there should be a major backlash against the Archdiocese and the School Board. What’s the point of being a Catholic school if you’re in the tank for the pro-abort establishment?
