BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – An organization that promotes civil and human rights is criticizing an Alabama school system’s response to complaints from a Jewish student that a teacher had classmates perform a Nazi salute.

The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute says the school system in wealthy, nearly all-white Mountain Brook showed a lack of commitment to diversity.

A Jewish student says he was shocked last month when a history teacher had classmates stand and give a stiff-armed Nazi salute during a lesson on the way symbols change.
