Palestinian flags in BC classrooms 'force kids to learn politics,' says mother - BC

A Jewish mother in Vancouver says she was told she was bullied 'many times' by teachers Palestine Classroom banners and signs.

Merav Nider told Global News she filed a complaint after her son's seventh-grade teacher hung a Palestinian flag in the classroom.

The flag was taken down but was later replaced with a flag that showed the outline of the State of Israel in red, green and black.

Nied said the painting was widely seen as a call for the destruction of Israel.

After speaking with the principal, she said that flag was also removed.

“When we force kids to participate in politics, they’re not old enough to understand it or make an informed choice about where they fall on the political spectrum,” Need said.

“Therefore, it is best for schools to provide a safe learning environment for children where all children are welcome.”
