From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

John Edward Glennon (September 3, 1932 – August 11, 2007[1]) was an American educator.


John Edward Glennon was born September 3, 1932, in Kingston, New York.


Following the Depression, he became a school teacher. Subsequently, Glennon became a school principal in Millbrook, New York and later the superintendent of the Millbrook Central School District.

As superintendent, Mr. Glennon was forced into a position in which he established an important legal precedent for disciplining students who posed a danger to other students. After Mr. Glennon protected the general student body by suspending a student from school, the student and his family sued Mr. Glennon. The courts vindicated his decisions. The facts are best explained through the legal opinions detailed at: 6 AD2d 637 (3d Dept 1983); 594 F.Supp. 220 (SDNY 1984); 96 AD2d 637 (3d Dept 1983); 757 F.2d 496 (2d Cir 1985); See Also: 107 AD2d 10 (2d Dept 1985)

Death and afterward[edit]

He died on August 11, 2007, surrounded by his family in Concord, North Carolina.

On the 75th anniversary of his birth, September 3, 2008, a flag was flown over the United States Capitol in memory of John Edward Glennon as "A Great American Educator."
