Teachers Complain About Holbrook Morals Policy
BOSTON (AP) _ The Massachusetts Teachers Association is complaining to the state Labor Relations Commission about a new policy requiring that Holbrook teachers act ethically and morally in and out of school.
The complaint was filed Thursday afternoon by Joseph Zarba for the MTA and the 110-member Holbrook Education Association against the Holbrook School Committee, said Marilyn Mucci, docket clerk at the commission.
The Holbrook School Committee unanimously approved the policy last week, without consulting the union, Zarba said.
Superintendent John Moran, who drafted the policy, refused to say what might constitute unethical or immoral behavior.
″I don’t want to pander to the prurient interests of any individual who would ask that kind of question,″ Moran said.
