Washington Post education reporter Valerie Strauss, who broke the story about Catholic Memorial School fans’ anti-semitic chant, published this update on Sunday.  Here’s two excerpts..

Parents of Catholic Memorial students said Sunday that they heard Newton North High School fans shouting homophobic slurs during the Friday night game, something they said is not uncommon for the all-boys school to endure during sporting events…

Risa King, a Catholic Memorial parent, said she heard anti-gay chants coming from the Newton side. “This is nothing new,” she said in an e-mail. “At every game our boys get taunted like this by most schools that we play. … We’ve just never complained before.” Other Catholic Memorial parents and supporters also reported hearing similar homophobic shouts.
