Sen. Scott: Boca principal should have been fired, no excuse for Holocaust denial

first_imgFlorida Rep. Mike Caruso also took to social media to condemn the district’s handling of Latson following his removal.As of Tuesday afternoon, Latson has remained silent about his now viral and highly controversial comments. Florida Senator Rick Scott and other Florida official are speaking out after a former Boca Raton High School Principal questioned the existence of the Holocaust.In an email to parents in 2018, former Spanish River Community High School principal William Latson said: “I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee.”Latson added that “not everyone believes the Holocaust happened.”The Palm Beach County School District released a statement Monday confirming that Latson had been reassigned “out of an abundance of concern and respect for the students and staff of Spanish River Community High School.”“Mr. Latson made a grave error in judgment in the verbiage he wrote. In addition to being offensive, the principal’s statement is not supported by either the School District Administration or the School Board,” the statement read.However, Sen. Rick Scott says the district’s reassignment of Latson is “simply” not enough.Sen. Scott wrote via Twitter Tuesday that “This Principal should have been fired.”last_img read more
