Outspoken UVa charter critic Dena Bowers has been abruptly fired from her position as a recruiter in their HR department. She says she was fired on Tuesday after sending a private e-mail containing an NAACP analysis of the charter’s effect on medical center employees. The e-mail was forwarded around by others, leading to it being mistakenly sent to the all classified staff at within the College of Arts & Sciences. UVa does not, as a matter of policy, publicly address personnel matters. As a seventeen-year employee of UVa, Bowers is surprised and angered by her firing, and believes that it is retaliation for her opposition to the charter. Liesel Nowak has the story in today’s Daily Progress.
