Sunday, November 18, 2019, New Rochelle, NY
I had a chance to meet Dr. Laura Feijoo, newly hired Superintendent of Schools in New Rochelle, NY. She spoke at an event held by the Brotherhood of Temple Israel. Brief interview below with Dr. Feijoo and School Board President Amy Moselhi. The event was attended by several hundred people. It included an hour long presentation by Dr. Feijoo, outlining her plans for assessing district needs. There was no new information provided about the controversial suspension of Coach Lou DiRienzo on Wednesday, November 13, 2019. No mention of Dr. Feijoo’s lawsuit pending against NYC Department of Education. Along with two other plaintiffs, she is seeking compensatory damages of $90 million dollars, alleging “reverse” employment discrimination based on her race. (Feijoo starts at 3:37, and Moselhi starts at 8:38, if you want a shortcut.)
