The Answer Sheet: hate groups

Posted at 06:30 AM ET, 11/11/2009

What should schools do when they become the target of hate groups?

Some Washington area schools are being targeted for protests by an extremist church from Kansas whose website attacks gays, blacks, Jews and other minorities, as well as any whites who manage to get along with them. On Monday, Westboro Baptist Church members protested at private Sidwell School in the District, where President Obama’s two daughters attend. Yesterday it was Bethesda Chevy-Chase High School in Montgomery County because, the church website says, the school has a diversity club.
