CARTHAGE, N.C. (AP) - Three members of the Moore County Board of Education have resigned after voting to fire the school superintendent.

The board didn’t explain why it fired Superintendent Robert Grimesey on a 5-3 vote Thursday. The move drew hundreds of complaints from parents and teachers and a restraining order after Rep. Jamie Boles asked a judge to stop the school board from hiring a new leader.

Board member Ben Cameron wrote in his resignation letter he thinks in time his vote to fire Grimesey will prove to be right. Board members have refused to say why they fired the superintendent after just 11 months on the job, citing North Carolina’s privacy laws.

Grimesey hasn’t commented either.

A large crowd is expected when the Moore County Board of Education meets again Monday night.
