IT WAS ONLY A MONTH AGO that I posted the “heartwarming” story of William Latson (left), Principal of Spanish River High School in Boca Raton, Fla. and his rehiring with back pay after he was fired for a 'politically incorrect' exchange with a parent about the school's “Holocaust” instruction.

It seems logical to deduce that the parent was Jewish, but she has never been named.

The Palm Beach County School Board fired Latson over the incident, using “failure to carry out job responsibilities” as the legal reason. Latson appealed the decision and the arbitration judge agreed with him, recommending Latson be transferred to an another administrative position within the district at the same pay level. Thus just last month he was rehired with back pay of $152,000 by a 4-3 vote of the board.

Principal Latson spotlighting all the "Holocaust educators" at his school in his Twitter account, dated February. Probably most "instructors" are uncredentialed volunteers; who knows how much time and school resources are used up in this purely political, forced endeavor.

WILLIAM LATSON WAS FIRED IN OCTOBER LAST YEAR after 20 years employment with the Palm Beach County, Florida school district. It was because of a series of emails he sent to a parent in April 2018 explaining his decision to allow students to form their own opinion on the facts of "The Holocaust.”

The emails surfaced when the student's mother revealed them to the school board. In the exchange, Latson (left), who is black, wrote that students were allowed to disbelieve in the Holocaust lessons because “not everyone believes the Holocaust happened” and that as an educator his role was “to be politcally neutral.” This implies he correctly sees the teaching of the Holocaust in schools as a political issue, more than historical.
