Better policing for hate crimes

Better policing for hate crimes

Regarding “Parents, students charge anti-Semitism ignored in East Brunswick schools” (June 1), as residents of New Jersey we should advocate for better policing of our towns’ hate crimes and bullying. Whether it be anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, or discrimination based on gender, religion, or ethnicity, our boards of education in all districts should be working to root out the children who are engaged in this insidious behavior. These are not childish pranks and the adults, whether of schoolchildren or senior citizens, should be intent on writing, calling, and making these issues a priority. It has been going on for too long; not enough education on this issue is being implemented nor is enough condemnation being given.
