ED, Triton mysteriously fires dean, won't honor contract [D504]

Triton College, Proviso's community college, canned a Dean and won't honor the last year of his contract. See Riverside/Brookfield Landmark (Bill Dwyer).

Why does this story line sound familiar?

Back to Triton....
After the Landmark contacted President Patricia Granados' office seeking comment on Forst's status, Triton's Vice President for Institutional Advancement Marge Stabile called back Aug. 14 and read a prepared statement from the college.

"Ed Forst was terminated on Tuesday, June 20, 2006," she read. "He is no longer employed at Triton College. "There will be no payout on his contract. There's no further comment."...

Maggie Hahn-Wade, president of the Triton Faculty Association, said on Aug. 15 that the reasons for Forst's firing remain a mystery hidden behind the school's contention that it is a personnel matter and exempt from disclosure.

BTW, have you heard the theory that Proviso High Schools push going to Triton to up the enrollment numbers at the community college and allow the political bosses to be more profitable there?
