I was dismayed to hear of the Katonah-Lewisboro District Teachers Association (KLDTA) loss of confidence in Dr. Paul Kreutzer’s abilities as superintendent of schools. I was also dismayed to hear that their voices were silenced during a so-called public forum portion of a board meeting. I don’t understand how listening to faculty concerns about Dr. Kreutzer can be construed, as Mark Lipton, president of the K-L board of education characterizes it, an ambush.
I believe that Dr. Kreutzer’s previous employment history is important in the assessment of how he is conducting himself here at Katonah-Lewisboro. And I believe that an independent objective investigation is in order to examine the very serious charges of sexual harassment. If there has already been a settlement, the district taxpayers have a right to know where their money went.
