Chapter Summary

This chapter describes that state schools are a sphere in which we encounter forms of anti-Semitic violence which appear to be an extension of those which exist in society. These acts rarely give rise to legal action. Hatred of Jews emerges in the classroom and not only in the schoolyard, in the corridors or outside the school, especially when the subject-matter or content of the lesson lends itself to it, which is particularly true of history. The chapter reports an invitation not to over dramatise problems which should not be denied or underestimated and in which anti-Semitism itself is only one of many elements. There is indeed a problem which is specific to state schools, a form of anti-Semitism in schools which is not simply an extension of the general anti-Semitism in society. It is important to question exactly how schools help to produce it.
