A video produced by Study.com that was shown to three classes of schoolchildren in Rockland, New York, claimed that historic persecution of Jews was a result of their bad behaviour. The video at one point showed a table comparing Jews with Christians, decrying Jews as “violent religious extremists” who “got what they deserved”.
Clarkstown South High School stopped showing the video after complaints. The school district called the video “demeaning and historically inaccurate” and promised to review guidelines.
Study.com issued a statement saying, “We apologise that the video seemed offensive. That was certainly not what we intended.”
