What one wonders was racist about saying ‘free Palestine’ in class? Was it mentioning Palestine or is the idea of freedom now anti-Semitic too? On their front page they boast that ‘Every child succeeds’. Clearly the student who exercised freedom of speech has only succeeded in getting suspended.
This is the result of the Prevent programme and the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism.
I hear you have suspended a child for saying Free Palestine What does this mean ? That you don’t think Palestine should be free ? Is there an islamophobia problem in your school ? Do you know a third of Palestinians are Christian ? What if a child cried “ long live Zionist Israel “ would they get a gold star ?
