Eh, I’m okay with this resolution: Dunkerton principal resignsPosted: March 14, 2012
The JH/HS principal in Dunkerton who arranged for the appearance of Junkyard Prophet has resigned. He is the one who arranged for the show, which anyone should have known would result in a clear violation of the First Amendment. Goodbye, sir.
Dunkerton principal to announce resignation Monday by Amie Steffen in the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier, Mar. 13, 2012
A secondary school principal who recommended a controversial Minnesota ministry to a school assembly will tender his resignation Monday, the superintendent confirmed.
Nevertheless, the official district line is that his resignation is unrelated to that assembly.
Principal Mike Cooper, who oversees grades 7-12 in Dunkerton, did not want to comment on the situation until the meeting tonight.
But Superintendent Jim Stanton confirmed that the plan has been “something in the works” for nearly a month and is “not at all” related to Cooper’s role in the assembly.
“This has been something that has been coming for a long time,” Stanton said. “He simply wants to be a superintendent.”
I’m okay with him being allowed to leave like this. I certainly hope that whatever district accepts his application for superintendent takes into consideration his evident lack of judgement.
