A Florida high school principal has been fired after telling a parent he “can’t say” that the Holocaust was a “factual, historical event”.

William Latson of Spanish River High School made his claims last year in an email exchange with a student’s mother, telling her “not everyone believes the Holocaust happened” and that as a school official he must be “politicially neutral”.

On Wednesday, the Palm Beach County school board fired Latson for ethical misconduct, calling his comments “offensive”.
