Milton schools should release Garrow records
The Milton School Board suspended Superintendent Mike Garrow effective Oct. 12, and he’ll remain on suspension through the entire school year but still earn his pay.
We know that the board appointed an outside attorney to investigate allegations in a complaint filed against Garrow. We don’t know the nature of that complaint or what the investigation found, if anything.
Garrow denies any wrongdoing, including suggestions that he had an affair, misappropriated funds or did something immoral or illegal. His denial, however, has not squelched rumors that damage him and the district.
School board President Rob Roy cites a state statute designed to protect the privacy of employees and suggests privacy outweighs the public’s right to know what’s going on with Mr. Garrow.
In our editorial Sunday, we’ll explain why we believe Roy is wrong and that those records should be released.
