“Pray for Credit” Principal No Longer With School


David Hood, the controversial principal who proposed giving students school credit for praying outside the city’s women’s health clinic, has suddenly disappeared from his school.

Via the Winnipeg Free Press:

Catholic education officials said this morning that Paula Morrison is now principal of Christ the King School, but will not discuss what has happened to former principal David Hood.

“It’s our policy not to comment on personnel matters,” said director of education Robert Praznik.

Hood was put on administrative leave after his proposal caused an uproar in the media.  He then returned to the school, agreeing not to offer any extra credits, but said he would find more “age-appropriate” ways for students to participate in anti-choice activities.

Christ the King Catholic School hosts students from kindergarten to 8th grade.
