ZIONIST ORGANIZATION OF AMERICA NEWS RELEASE ZOA Files Civil Rights Complaint Against Fairfax County, Virginia Public Schools for Tolerating Longstanding Antisemitism The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has filed a civil rights complaint against Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) in Virginia, alleging longstanding antisemitism problems there that FCPS officials have failed to address, in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. The complaint, against one of the largest school districts in the U.S., was filed with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights on January 25, 2022. The ZOA’s complaint documents year of antisemitism in the schools, which FCPS officials knew about but did not respond to effectively, including but not limited to the following: Jewish students have repeatedly been subjected to ethnic slurs, “Heil Hitler” salutes and Jewish “jokes” from their peers. One Jewish student received hundreds of antisemitic texts from two other students, which referred to the Jewish student as a “f**king Jew ass whore,” “f**king Jew,” “dirty Jew,” “Jew F**ktard,” and “dollar dealer”; Swastikas have repeatedly defaced school property, without condemnation by FCPS officials or even any notice to the FCPS community that these incidents of antisemitic vandalism had occurred and would not be tolerated; For years, the religious observance of Jewish students and staff has not been accommodated, with back-to-school nights, quizzes and other significant events being scheduled on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and teachers singling out Jewish students in class to question their religious observance.
