Pembroke School Board Overturns Controversial 'Headmaster' Decision
After outcry from students and faculty, the Pembroke School Board has overturned a decision to change the title of the top job at Pembroke Academy from "headmaster" to "principal."
The Concord Monitor reports the school board voted 3-2 late Tuesday night to reverse its earlier decision.
The board voted last fall to change the title to principal, the rationale being that it's a more fitting title for a public school.
There was significant pushback from the school community, arguing that headmaster is in keeping with the school's history. Pembroke Academy was at one time a private school.
