When three minutes is all you get to make your case, sometimes you have to go a different route to get your voice heard at the local school board. The people in Joplin are doing that through a petition to the School Board President Jeff Koch asking the board to terminate Superintendent CJ Huff for gross misconduct.

Huff

From The Turner Report

An online petition seeking the firing of Joplin R-8 Superintendent C. J. Huff was started today on Change.org.

The petition comes in the wake of Huff’s verbal attack on R-8 Board of Education member Debbie Fort and his recent Facebook attacks on another board member, Jennifer Martucci, prior to the April 7 election.

The petition, which is directed to new Board of Education President Jeff Koch says the following:

It’s time to take action. C J Huff has performed gross misconduct in his role as Superintendent. He is a detriment to our kids, the parents of Joplin’s school children and the taxpayers of Joplin, MO.

In addition, a new Facebook group called C. J. Huff Has Got to Go started today.
