Hebrew classes can resume at taxpayer-funded school

September 11, 2007 21:16

The United States' first taxpayer-funded Hebrew-language charter school can resume classes, county school board members voted Tuesday, saying concerns about the Jewish faith seeping into public classrooms had largely been resolved. The Ben Gamla Charter School in Florida said it would begin teaching Hebrew again Monday, more than three weeks after Broward County schools Superintendent James Notter ordered the classes stopped to allow further review of the curriculum. The school can teach about the Jewish faith, but cannot advocate it.
