Ten Florida middle school students were suspended this week, for participating in a "Kick a Jew" day. Administrators of the North Naples Middle School told UPI following the November 19 incident that they will work on cultural sensitivity training. It will include using the 20-minute homeroom at the beginning of the day for focusing on character traits, beginning with respect and kindness, district spokesman Joe Landon told the Naples Daily News. The students served a one-day in-school suspension, which is prescribed under the school's bullying and harassment policy.
