[Ed. – A welcome update to this story. It does seem odd to emphasize a “heavily Jewish” population in Boca Raton, as if non-Jewish Americans would be perfectly fine with “political neutrality” about the Holocaust.]
A principal in heavily Jewish Boca Raton is out of a job because he refused to say the Holocaust was a real historical event.
Spanish River High School Principal William Latson told a parent that as a public school official he needed to remain “politically neutral” — sensitive to both Holocaust education advocates and people who deny the destruction of six million Jews during World War II.
The Palm Beach County School District didn’t see it that way and on Monday assigned Latson to another, unspecified position. …
A new principal has not yet been named.
