UPDATES: Boston Globe story here.
Students, alumni, teachers, parents, clergy, city councilors and many others testified in opposition to citizen’s petition promoted by Americans for Peace and Tolerance, a group that has long-complained of an anti-Israeli bias in the Newton Public Schools, at a packed public hearing at Newton South High School last night. I left the hearing after nearly two hours and there were still a number of people who were waiting to speak. But during those two hours, the overwhelming majority of speakers testified in support of the schools, teachers and superintendent David Fleishman.
