Proud Guernseyman started this petition to States of Guernsey

On 27 July 2019, the Guernsey Press published a leaked e-mail, sent by Deputy Matt Fallaize to the then Chief Secretary of the Education Department. This e-mail related to a sham recruitment process for a Head of Curriculum and Standards position in the re-modeled Education Department.

In the e-mail Deputy Fallaize employed bullying tactics in order to attempt to overturn a 4-1 vote to appoint a local candidate to the role. Deputy Fallaize was the lone dissenting vote in support of an alternative candidate who was previously unsuccessful in applying for the Director of Education role.

Unfortunately, Deputy Fallaize was successful in forcing the panel to reconsider their position, and the previously successful candidate was forced to withdraw their acceptance of the role.

Not only is this blatant political interference in recruiting for a non-political role, but it represents bullying tactics of the worst kind. Needless to say, a bully should not be in charge of our Island's education policy.

ESC has had five chief secretaries in the past two years. No wonder, if this is the pressure which they are put under to conform to political fiat.

Matt Fallaize has lost the confidence of the public which he should be serving. He should do the honorable thing and resign.
