The Holyoke Public Schools fired Gus in June of 2014 after speaking out against a district-wide initiative to post student test scores publicly on walls, a practice known as “data walls.” Following an investigation by the Massachusetts Department of Labor Relations and an outpouring of public support, Gus was reinstated in November of 2014 only to be fired again at the end of the 2014-15 school year. In August, the Department of Labor Relations issued a complaint against the Holyoke Public Schools, yet again citing probable cause that he was retaliated against for speaking out.
