Marlborough – As the school year winds down, the ongoing tensions between Dr. Anthony Pope, the superintendent of the Marlborough Public Schools and the Marlborough Educators Association (MEA) continue to brew after the union took a recent vote of “no confidence” in Pope. Now further controversy is building as Mayor Arthur Vigeant publicly stated he was not in support of a recent decision by the School Committee (of which he is chair) on how best to deal with the situation surrounding the beleaguered superintendent.

Strife has been escalating since Adam Bakr, Marlborough High School's (MHS) assistant principal, was put on leave without public explanation in January. Several MHS students, unhappy with the decision, organized a rally at the school, started a Facebook page in Bakr's defense and attended School Committee meetings in an attempt to get the popular administrator reinstated.
