This no doubt will not be the end of the Lamplighter saga with the ongoing lawsuit and what not, but it certainly has a ring of finality: The school’s board of trustees issued a statement last night announcing the termination, effective immediately, of Headmaster Arnold Cohen. The vote was unanimous. From my inbox at 8:41 p.m. last night:
On June 25, 2010 the Lamplighter School Board of Trustees notified Dr. Cohen of his termination as Head of School effective immediately. The vote to terminate Dr. Cohen was unanimous. We are disappointed that Dr. Cohen’s repeated breaches of his employment contract forced this action to be taken to protect the School, its students and its Community. The Board has initiated the process to identify an interim head for the upcoming school year and expects that process to conclude soon.
