What the Newton public schools pro-'Palestinian' education has brought

There's a lot of outrage over this report about the public schools in Newton, Mass., the town in which I grew up.
Parents groups are up in arms after a recent report found public schools in Newton, Massachusetts presented whitewashed versions of Hamas and Palestinian Authority (PA) charters, as well as other materials posing the destruction of Israel as acceptable.
The findings were made through an investigation of classroom materials by the independent watchdog group Verity Educate, which discovered "repeated instances of bias against Israel, bias against the US and its actions in the Middle East, and bias that sanitizes the ideology and actions of terrorists."
Parents for Excellence in Newton Schools (PENS), which took part in the research, on Sunday released a statement demanding action over the issue and detailing just how serious the school materials were.
In one case, students were given a modified version of the Hamas charter, in which references to genocide were removed and the word "Jew" was replaced with "Israeli" to sanitize the terrorist group's murderous intentions.
I wonder how growing up in the Newton public schools influenced this New York Times reporter.

Carl, when I first saw this, I literally was in shock. I went to Newton High....I got an email from a Christian classmate today who now lives in Florida. She was as angry as I am. I think that both of us are still in shock. I wonder about Brookline.My class is having a reunion in the Greater Boston area, but I am unable to travel.
