A Simple Discussion

Over the past two months, there has been much discussion throughout town about a swastika that appeared on a student desk at Heritage Middle School.

The symbol was discovered in late November, and upon learning of it from a concerned community member and a parent, an article about the matter was published in the Tribune in late December. A single Letter to the Editor, written by Claudia and Brandon Minde in response to that article, followed a month later (though it was referred to as “another letter” when discussed at Monday’s Board of Education meeting). The letter noted the rise in bias-motivated incidents in northern New Jersey, and detailed the importance of students learning how to handle acts of bigotry that they may encounter later in life, by addressing it in school now.
