The Vermont school principal was placed on leave through a Facebook post at BLM



The Vermont school principal was placed on leave through a Facebook post at BLM

A Vermont school principal was placed on administrative leave after he posted Facebook status about the Black Lives Matter movement which has been considered a “deaf-tone deaf.”

Tiffany Riley, who has been the principal of K-12 Windsor School in Windsor since 2015, made a comment on her personal page on Wednesday, The Valley News reports.

“I strongly believe that Black Lives Matter, but I do NOT agree with coercive steps taken to arrive at this point; some of them were falsified in an effort to prove something,” Riley wrote, according to the school website. “Even though I want to be behind BLM, I don’t think people should be made to feel they should choose the black race over the human race.”

“While I understand the urgency to feel compelled to advocate for black life, what about our fellow law enforcement?” he added. “What about all the other people who advocate and demand justice for all? Just because I don’t walk with the BLM sign doesn’t mean I’m a racist. “

A group of graduates recently denounced the post as “deaf-tone-deaf” and the Ascutney Mountain School District Council wrote in a letter that it was “uniformly surprised” by the post.

“Ignorance, prejudice, and lack of judgment in this statement are very contrary to the values ​​we support as school and district councils,” the letter said.

The school board held an emergency meeting on Friday and voted unanimously to place Riley on paid administrative leave – with no plans to bring her back to the ship.

Inspector David Baker told The Valley News that the district would work on a “mutually agreed severance package” with Riley.

“They did not see in any way that he would go forward as head of the building who provided the comments and statements,” Baker said. “It’s clear that the community has lost confidence in its ability to lead.”

In a follow-up Facebook post, Riley wrote that she “accidentally offended” people, VT Digger reports.

“I understand the struggle of the black community and stand with them in their struggle against racism,” Riley wrote.

But school board chairman Elizabeth Burrows told the outlet that the second post did not help.

“That does not show assurance to African-American families – black families – that their children can feel safe – that they are valued and loved,” Burrows told the outlet.

Riley also wrote emails to school board leaders and supervisors who argued that his position had been “twisted” and “taken completely out of context,” according to the report.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
