The U.S. Department of Education last week opened a federal investigation into Hillsborough County Public Schools in Tampa, Florida, expanding the agency’s investigations into K-12 public schools under Title VI. The move is part of the department’s efforts to aggressively enforce the civil rights law — which prohibits discrimination based on shared ancestry or ethnic characteristics — in the wake of increased antisemitism, Islamophobia, and other forms of discrimination reported in public schools and on college campuses in the wake of the Israel-Hamas war.
