DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) An embattled Iowa high school principal says he wants school board discussions of his firing to be aired in public.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1td92W7 ) that Red Oak High School Principal Jedd Sherman says he has nothing to hide, and he has requested that the Red Oak School Board conduct its talks about him in an open meeting.

Sherman says the boards efforts to fire him are retaliation for him reporting two cases of student bullying. Sherman says top school officials were also unhappy after he requested that an already-planned bathroom remodeling project be done in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

School board member have declined to discuss their reasons for trying to fire Sherman, but have refused his request to conduct their discussion in public.
