Students of Penn Tech started this petition to Senator Cory A. Booker and

Our Director of Counseling, Mr. Joseph Jacob, was fired from his position at the CAMDEN County Technical School's BOE meeting on April 29, 2020. The students, staff, and community of the Penn Tech Campus oppose the decision of the Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent. Mr. Jacob does everything he can given the resistance they give him. He cares about the students and staff. He makes everyone he comes into contact with feel welcome and important. The guidance office is a safe place because of him. Mr. Jacob understands the problems our students face and we cannot lose that. He is compassionate and empathetic. He always listens and is not quick to jump to conclusions. He is always involved and volunteers for school events and activities. 

The Board and Superintendents have a history of unjust treatment and firings. They change the Director of Counseling every 3-4 years. They do not follow any step by step improvement plan.  Good people who are role models and important to the students and community are thrown away. We ask that you investigate and reverse the decision of the BOE so that we can keep Mr. Jacob and he earns his tenure. We, the students, staff and, parents refuse to keep losing the people that care as much as Mr. Jacob. Now more than ever we need stability in our education. Please Save Mr. Jacob!!!
