Upstate New York Schools Sued Over Anti-Semitism


The Pine Bush school district in upstate New York is being sued by several parents who claim their children were subject to anti-Semitic bullying and harassment, the New York Times reported.
 
Swastikas proliferated all over school grounds and students’ notebooks, and teachers or school officials reortedly did not intervene, despite myriad complaints from both students and their parents, the parents told the Times.
 
The former superintendent of the school district , Philip G. Steinberg, called the lawsuit a “money grab”  ;D and that the allegations are “embellished.”
 
A lawyer for the district says they have “responded diligently” to reports of anti-Semitic behavior, including bringing in Holocaust survivors to speak to school assemblies, and holding anti-bullying training for students and teachers.
 
Pine Bush schools serve parts of Sullivan, Ulster and Orange counties, west of Newburgh and about 90 minutes drive from New York City.

And once again we have to wonder who it is drawing swastikas? Could it be the jewish students themselves at their parents behest - for the purpose of a money grab? Wouldn't that be a shock...  ::)

btw - if menorahs and six pointed stars appear all over America, particularly in Washington DC and state capitals, would that be cause to complain about anti-gentilism? I need someone to sue because whenever I see those symbols I get all frantic and my breathing gets difficult.

Even Steinberg recognized this as a money grab and said so.

Here's the NY Times account:

Get a load of this -

Most people interviewed — from a bagel shop owner to McDonald’s clerks, adults and teenagers alike — said they had not heard of the swastikas.
