This is our last public forum meeting in which PJTN can add our voice of concern and outrage over the reinstatement of William Latson, who incurred international scorn from his position as principal at Spanish River High School in Boca Raton for his refusal to acknowledge the Holocaust as a historical event. The story reached worldwide attention, led in great part by a press campaign launched by PJTN demanding his immediate removal. My exact quote at the time for media: “This anti-Semite should not be allowed anywhere near a school—PJTN is calling for his immediate removal, not reassignment!”  

Latson is now officially back on staff within the Palm Beach city school system—complete with the hefty reward of $152,000 in back pay and never a hint of an apology for blatant antisemitism. Despite the outcries of the local Jewish community, the school board caved to the threat of ongoing legal battles.

PJTN is sending a letter to Florida's Attorney General Moody to launch a full and thorough investigation into whether or not the Jewish students' civil rights were violated. When an educator is incapable of defending documented history and protecting the civil rights of our childrenhe has crossed the line and has become a threat to our children, our communities and the future of this nation. His actions legitimize the outrageous claims by marginalized groups that the Holocaust didn’t happen or wasn’t as bad as history claimed. 

Not on our watch! We will again engage the media. 

The existence of an educator like Latson is not acceptable. If a principal can do what he did without permanent ramifications in Boca Raton, a community with a large Jewish population, it can be done anywhere. It is time to draw a line in the sand to combat this threat to our communities and to the educational future of America’s children.
