Chapter Summary

Staffs in schools are not particularly keen to know and understand anti-Semitism in schools, or at least to think of means likely to counter it efficiently. Whether the dubious, racist or anti-Semitic remarks come from the pupils or from the teachers, the tendency amongst the latter is to turn a blind eye. The way educational establishments deal with cultural differences demanding recognition is a sensitive issue. The media coverage of anti-Semitism in schools creates a great deal of tension between the internal and the external worlds, exacerbating the difficulties there may be in pinpointing the problems appropriately. Excesses and shortcomings continue to prevail. Nevertheless, amongst teachers, it is possible to find an arena for the consideration of anti-Semitism as long as it is introduced diplomatically or because it is imposed from without.

Keywords: anti-Semitism; cultural differences; media coverage; school; teacher
