France’s Ministry of Education appealed a court decision ordering a school to take back two students expelled for assaulting a Jewish classmate. Two 11-year-old students at Paris’s prestigious Montaigne High School were expelled from the institution last November after they attacked and shouted anti-Semitic insults at a Jewish student. However, a youth tribunal earlier this week ordered the school to reinstate the pupils and pay $750 compensation to their families.
