Re: “Day schools respond to racist remarks in election’s aftermath” (Nov. 14): How many black teachers have the day schools hired in the past 10 years? How many black (Jewish) students attend the schools? How many lessons have been taught in class about multiculturalism? How many Martin Luther King Day events have been held? I’d first like to know the answers and then to see some serious debate on the issue of latent racism in the Jewish day school movement and in the Orthodox community and read about some sustained action to confront that head-on.
