Cuomo directs State Police to investigate anti-Semitic accusations in NY school district

PINE BUSH, N.Y. – Governor Cuomo has directed State Police
to investigate serious allegations coming from the Pine Bush School District in
Ulster County.

On Friday, Cuomo directed State Police and the Division of
Human Rights to investigate the accusations of anti-Semitic harassment,
physical attacks, and intimidation in the school district.

In a press release Cuomo stated:

“The reports of rampant anti-Semitic harassment and physical assaults at
Pine Bush schools, if true, are deeply disturbing. Here in New York State, we
have zero tolerance for bigotry or hate based on anyone's religious or ethnic
origin, and to that end, I have directed the State Police and the Division of
Human Rights, to undergo a full investigation into the circumstances
surrounding these acts. The public has a right to know the truth, and parents
across the state have the right to know that their children can attend our
schools without fear of this reprehensible behavior.”
