From the Crusades to the Holocaust: UK teachers duck history which might displease students

In a depressing report from the UK Department of Education, we learn that British teachers are avoiding teaching about "controversial" topics such as the Crusades and the Holocaust because it might "upset" some students or "cause them offence."

First Leeds and now teachers in British schools... Pretty depressing note on which to begin the festival of Pesach which is so rooted in history....
