Guam education boss fired over bag ban

3:24 pm on 11 May 2006

The Guam Education Superintedent, Juan Flores, has been fired by the board.

The termination comes after Mr Flores implemented a ban on all bags and water bottles in public schools because of ongoing bomb threats and a chemical explosion two weeks ago.

The Pacific Daily News reports that during a meeting last night, Mr Flores and the board chairman, Johnny Rivera, had an argument about the ban which led to Mr Flores storming out.

Mr Rivera says his legal team has advised him not to comment on the matter.
