Jewish Students Stage Walkout in Woodland Hills Over Antisemitism

Students at El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills staged a walkout Tuesday to protest alleged antisemitism on campus. According to the students, the problem has gotten out of control, and teachers and administrators are failing to act with urgency.

“I’m honestly scared to go to school,” ninth grader Danielle Eshed told KTLA’s Rachel Menitoff.  

Eshed said she was recently assaulted by a classmate who had called her “a dirty Jew.” The charter school’s principal David Hussey has said the perpetrator was disciplined and that school police were notified.

However, students say the problem is bigger than this one incident. They’ve also seen students passing notes to each other that reference Hitler.

Antisemitic incidents have been on the rise over the past several years. Since the war between Israel and Hamas began, there has been a nationwide increase in hate against both Jewish and Arab-Americans.
