Holocaust denied by students in Rialto school assignment

A Southern California teen declares the Holocaust to be a hoax. In April 2014, approximately 2,000 Rialto Unified eighth graders were given the English Language Arts assignment in which they were asked to argue for or against the reality of the Holocaust, and given pages from a Holocaust denial website as a source. After an international outcry, the Southern California school district apologized and said it would not repeat the assignment. In June, the Los Angeles News Group obtained copies of many of the essays, with the students’ names redacted.

This is appalling. A new low for government schools.
