The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) unanimously passed a resolution that denounced anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli rhetoric, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.
The resolution, which was passed on Tuesday, also called on the district to update its Jewish history and culture curriculum and instructional materials, and provide more training to staff about how to respond to anti-Semitic speech and incidents.
Jeffrey Abrams, Los Angeles regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, said it will “help create a productive and safe environment for Jewish students, and all students and families.”
Hirschhaut noted that “amid an alarming spike in acts of anti-Semitic violence and anti-Jewish animus in the public square, including anti-Israel vitriol, this reassures Jewish students, staff and families that anti-Semitism will not be ignored or excused in the classroom. And that appropriate training and reporting will give this measure teeth.”
