Public departures/private reasons

A story and an editorial from the Lynchburg News & Advance about high-profile resignations that leave more questions than answers.
In Amherst County, the county administrator abruptly resigned in a closed-door session. No one's talking, so the public has no idea what happened.
In Appomattox, it was the school board superintendent.
There's nothing prohibiting board members from discussing what happened in the closed meetings (and, admittedly, there's nothing illegal about the discussion in private), but when major players in the local government scene quickly and unexpectedly depart, wouldn't it be nice if the public could be in on some of the reasons why (even in vague terms like "personality conflicts," or "expectations not met") and what the expected consequences will be?
