Students at East Brunswick High School are being asked to bring their yearbooks to the high school or administration building on Monday to correct an issue that has caused controversy in the district.
On page 236 of the 2024 yearbook in the section for club photos, there is a picture of members of the Muslim Student Association next to a heading that reads “Jewish Student Association." Many in the Jewish community believe it was done intentionally to cause harm.
Superintendent of Schools Victor Valeski said a new page, including a new photo of the Jewish club and their member's names, is being printed now to replace the old page.
Valeski said the district is also looking into “cooperative learning tolerance programs” to address issues brought up by the yearbook debacle.
A third-party investigation into what lead to a picture of Jewish students being replaced with Muslim students is now underway.
Students can have the old club page removed and a new page professionally inserted when they bring in the yearbooks on Monday.
Graduation for the senior class is set for Tuesday in Trenton.
