AJC partnered with the broader Jewish community to discourage the Palm Beach County School Board from rehiring William Latson, a former Boca Raton high school principal, who was unwilling to state that the “Holocaust is a factual historical event.” In a major reversal, the school board voted 7-0 to rescind its decision to reinstate the principal, sending a clear message that Holocaust denial has no place in Palm Beach County schools. Laurence Milstein, AJC Palm Beach Director, addressed the school board moments before their vote to rescind.  Our letter to the school board can be viewed here.
