Oregon: Tease get a reaction
Only the humorless Left could fail to see that this was not a serious proposal
During a report at a Monday school board meeting, Lake Oswego School District Superintendent Heather Beck publicly announced there recently was an “anti-Semitic” picture posted in the LOHS cafeteria and a “racist” comment on a Facebook page run by LOHS students. Beck said the district will respond with professional training and discussions with students.
The incident was announced to parents by LOHS Principal Rollin Dickinson. In a letter to parents Monday, Dickinson said he became aware of a “deeply disturbing” post on Nov. 2 on the Class of 2017 Facebook page, “a private account managed by students.” Dickinson said that three weeks ago, a poll of potential senior pranks was created, and those ideas included: "We create a club called Ku-Klux-Klub and find every black kid and sacrifice them." He said no one “Liked” the post, but no one objected to it until one student finally came forward and told a teacher, who told him.
“We were able to determine that the student who wrote the posts was not a current LOHS student but a former LOHS student who now attends an out-of-district high school,” Dickinson’s letter said. “One of our students volunteered to take the poll down.”
School Board Chair Sarah Howell said the people who report such incidents should be commended for their courage.
“It’s disappointing when people stand by and do nothing in these situations, so I’m very grateful (to) whoever brought this to your attention,” Howell said.
