Adi Wilk started this petition to Tenafly Board of Education

In Mid April 2021, a 5th grade project at Maugham Elementary was assigned to write about a person the student admires and their accomplishments.   For whatever reason, one student wrote about Adolph Hitler and his "accomplishments" of killing 6 million jews.   In addition, there was a live presentation where the student dressed up as Hitler to give the presentation.   Subsequently, the project was posted in the hallways of the school.    There's evidence that some students within the school reported it to their teachers who discussed it with the principal and nothing was done about the issue.   Some parents called the school and board members but no return calls were ever made.   On Friday May 28, 2021, a posting was made on facebook to inform the community with it leading to outrage and condemnation.   The superintendent of schools has since then posted response letters which were insensitive to the issue and showed no transparency to investigate.  On June 2, 2021, the BOE member released a statement that the superintendent was to conduct an investigation and report back to the board with any findings.  

It is the position of the people signing this petition that an independent body should be appointed to investigate the incident and the handling of the response.   There is little confidence that the current administration will be able to conduct an unbiased investigation and able to look deep inside itself to make a proper judgment and recommendation.
