Decision to hire WI leader met with protests in Katonah

The decision to hire a former Wisconsin school superintendent to lead the Katonah-Lewisboro school district was met with protests last night, as teachers claim their new leader will likely bring the union-busting mindset that has become associated with the state in which he currently resides.

Dr. Paul Kreutzer is currently the superintendent in New Berlin, Wis. and was voted unanimously to the position of superintendent in the Katonah-Lewisboro district by the board of education last night.

Some teachers believe Kreutzer to be a strong supporter of anti-union Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who proposed taking away collective bargaining in his state. Kreutzer defended himself, saying that he represents a highly conservative school board in Wisconsin, and it was simply his job to carry out that school board's mission without prejudice.
