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.”
I BOUGHT A BUMPER STICKER IN CHURCH. MY HERO IS A BEAUTIFUL JEWISH MOTHER.
No, I have not studied Haggai, will have to do so.
What always gets me about muslims is that the Qu'ran says what it says, which is to lie to the infidel, convert the infidel, or kill the infidel. These are in the 'hard' verses, but how can muslims continue to say they are peace loving, when in fact, they are told to lie or kill? How can they deny what is written in their book? Are they 'Muslim In Name Only? Like RINO's and Christians In Name Only (my term, CINO).
It's wonderful that he put in the effort to learn, and was open to the Word. Where are the rest of them?
I wish there were more like him also. I wish they would split into 2 camps of violent and nonviolent, but since they do not speak up against killing and terrorism, I believe they all lie., because that is what is written.
Duet. 32:10, Israel is the apple of the Lord's eye. They are constantly watched over by God. Jesus came to redeem the Jew, but was not accepted by them. They wanted their king to come and rule as a king. It was after Paul and other apostles spread the Gospel, those accepting the Good news were called Christians. At the end of the age, while all unbelievers, muslim, hindu, and other cults will be cast into the lake of fire, there will be a remnant 144,000 who fled into the hills and will be saved. They will realize in the end times, after the anti Christ comes on the scene, who Jesus really was. God is watching over them and they will not be destroyed as moslems want them to be. It is a losing battle for them.
This is ridiculous, why are these people calling for the administrators head? I very seriously doubt that he even knew anything about these events occurring. Granted the punishment for these kids was a little light for the circumstance but to call for the principals to resign over the actions of these kids is absurd. BTW, what they are suggesting is exactly what the administration has done to senior military officers that didn’t tow the party line. One of them I saw had 3 unfounded complaints of sexual harassment between young military members and a CO and a destroyer squadron was relieved over it. It was unlikely that the CO even knew the people in question or anything about the events and it’s absurd to believe an Admiral in charge of 10 destroyers and cruisers knew anything about it or did anything to foster such behavior. What makes it worse is the complaints were unfounded and two high ranking officers lost their careers over it. Let’s stop this insanity of an accusation and no evidence being enough to hang someone.
Idiot you don't know what GOD's chosen people means. Until you find out you need not show your stupidity!
This will stir the hornets nest of opinions on here.
Revelations said the second coming will be like a thief in the night. You won't know when Christ returns. What if it already happened? It is not as easily interpreted as you all think.
God made man in his image and likeness. All men. He also gave us free will.
The whole damn educators , teachers, any hired staff and all others who work there should be sent to intensive educational training on what is really right and really, really wrong. The Jewish people have to put up with too much hate for being faithful to their good religion, and yet children are taught now to look up to terrorists. How upside down can our schools, churches and government get. Enough. And the punishment given was not near enough. If you do not make the point hard enough, it does not and will not do the job of teaching what was wrong. And I hope the parents were brought in and made sure they had better teach these children that they did something very wrong. Before the principal goes to another school, he had better get more training on the right way to teach or fire him. This happened on his watch and it did not happen overnight. This makes me very angry.
you are f---ing me !! What in the heck is wrong with our educating system???????????
Wait just one damn minute here...
Why is there NO demand for them to be brought up on "Hate Crimes"? Ok, maybe not the stupid 8 yr old kid, but the 14 yr old, damn straight!
