NEW YORK — The parents of a 13-year-old boy are suing their Massachusetts school district for ignoring verbal and physical attacks on their son by other students for being Jewish.
Jennyfer Sordillo and Robert Groezinger filed the lawsuit late last month against the Carver public schools in U.S. District Court in Boston.
They claim their son was subjected to daily attacks by a group of boys at his school.
The abuse included religious slurs and Nazi salutes, having pennies thrown at him, and being punched and kicked.
The lawsuit,which was brought under the Massachusetts Anti-Bullying Law, claims the abuse has been occurring for two years and school officials “have done nothing to stop it,” according to the Boston Globe.
