CNN Reports that in K-12 schools in 2017, anti-Semitic incidents increased by 94%.

A new report by CNN shows that anti-semitic incidents in the U.S. increased by more than half between 2016 and 2017. What's more, the incidents increased by nearly 94% in K-12 schools. The direct cause is unknown, but associate director for the Anti-Defamation League Aryeh Tuchman thinks "we're definitely in a period in our country where there's a general decrease in civility" and that "people in the past who have tamped down their anti-Semitic proclivities may feel more liberated to express them than before."
