Posters Hung In LA Classroom

Analysis / Interpretation / Press

A teacher at Alexander Hamilton Senior High School in the Castle Heights area of Los Angeles was found to have a Palestinian flag as well as various posters spreading anti-Israel messages in his classrooms.

The Parents Defending Education (PDE) advocacy group first released photos of the flags and posters in September 2021, obtaining them from a parent of a student in the class. The photos showed a Palestinian flag next to a Black Lives Matter flag and Pride flag adorning the walls of the classroom. Other photos showed posters in the classroom stating “In 2020, Make Israel Palestine Again,” “F— America,” and “F— the Police.” PDE’s discovery resulted in news coverage in The Daily Caller and Fox News; Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) told both outlets that “specific posters will be taken down.
