T.O. board won't make public reason for reinstating teacher behind explicit sex-ed brochures

TORONTO -- A paper trail documenting the controversial decision to reinstate a teacher who put up sexually explicit brochures in a public school will not be made public, Toronto District School Board (TDSB) officials say.

A Freedom of Information request made by QMI Agency for records surrounding Wade Vroom's reinstatement returned a dozen pages -- some of which are e-mails a sentence long that shed little light on the quiet move.

"Further access to other responsive records is denied," wrote Maria Mavroyannis, TDSB's freedom of information co-ordinator, citing a section from the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Wade put up the brochures -- including ones with that said "If You Like to F---" and "Use Your Head When Giving It: Blow Job Tips" -- in October at Delta Alternative School in his Grade 7 and 8 classroom.
