DNAinfo Chicago reports Ogden International School of Chicago principal Joshua VanderJagt asked to be reassigned because “challenges” arose after two students – one 14 years old and one 8 years old – suffered repeated threats by classmates.
The challenges surrounded allegations from Ogden parent Lisa Wolf Clemente that her 14-year-old and 8-year-old sons were bullied at both campuses by classmates for their Jewish heritage.
The Gold Coast resident said her teen son was shown photos of ovens and told to get in during lunch periods, intended as a reference to the Holocaust.
At the Streeterville campus, Wolf Clemente said her 8-year-old was invited to join a team called “Jew Incinerator” on the popular game app Clash of Clans. The team was allegedly created by Ogden eighth-graders.
In a screenshot provided by parents, the team description reads: “We are a friendly group of racists with one goal — put all Jews into an army camp until disposed of. Sieg! Heil!”
After the incidents, the bullies were suspended for two days – one in school and one out of school. They were also barred from “eighth grade graduation ceremonies,” according to the news service.
A petition circulated online calling for VanderJagt to resign or be fired, DNAinfo Chicago reports.
But in true government school fashion, he was merely transferred.
When the allegations surfaced in June, the boys’ mother accused the district of “pushing it under the carpet.”
If we want to be on GOD's side. We must protect his chosen people.
Everyone is God's chosen people. Not just the Jews. Don't tell me God only made one group of people his 'chosen one's'. That is ludicrous and makes God seem small minded.
You may find it ludicrous, but I'll trust the Bible over your eisigetical views . The Jews were chosen as His people for a reason that you likely don't believe. By the way He called them a stiff necked people.
THIS IS SO DISGRACEFUL AND GOD AWFUL
TIME TO END THIS FOR SURE ONCE AND FOR ALL
IF WE DON'T STAND UP FOR ALL JEWS; CHRISTIANS; AND THE LIKE WE ARE NOT AMERICAN
IT IS TIME TO END THIS PC CRAP AND MULTICULTURALISM BULLSHIT; WE MUST MAKE OUR NATION STRONG AND GET RID OF THE HITLER IN THE WH NOW HOW BY WRITING ENDLESSLY TO UR CONGRESSMEN
I hold President Obama personally responsible for these kinds of outbursts of insanity. He has fostered an atmosphere of division, and irrationality that has permeated our entire country, and he takes no leadership in any issues other than those that involve race or advance his own radical agenda. His whole administration is rancid, and the Department of Education ought to be abolished among other worthless agencies that he/liberals control. No doubt the school wants as liitle publicity as possible, and they would be the last ones to reform themselves and do the right thing.
Bully, cowards, and the new arrivals will join them. How much abuse can you take America?
As the scumbag-n-chief is a socialist/nazi/muslim, this behaviour has been encouraged, even rewarded. Just blink wrong at a black muslim and watch the national outrage.
@Odessa taft Stereotypes are unbecoming to those who believe in our country. However, I respect your right to express your opinion.
No Ellis One becomes God's child either by heritage as in the case the direct seed of Abraham or become an adopted child of Abraham by baptism in the faith of Jesus by free will otherwise one is just another creature God created. Under the laws , Moses had written from God there is a great benefit of being an adopted child in grace than direct lineage.
The students should have been expelled and the teacher fired... In this day and age of "hate" crimes, if this doesn't fill the bill, I don't know what does. This goes beyond simple name calling and it goes beyond pop-tart guns. This is rabid anti-Semitism, and it received no more than a light hand slap of a punishment, which is just next to acceptance of the deed.
