The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights announced on Tuesday that it is investigating alleged Title VI violations of four schools and a district.

University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (Minneapolis, Minn.), Muhlenberg College (Allentown, Pa.), The Ohio State University (Columbus, Ohio) and Temple University (Philadelphia, Pa.) are under investigation, as is the Oakland Unified School District (Calif.).

The 99 open investigations related to Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prevents “discrimination involving shared ancestry.”

Ohio State was characterized as an antisemitic “hostpost,” one of the worst 25% of schools for Jew-hatred, in a December report.

“We are aware of the Department of Education complaint and intend on fully complying, providing the department with robust information on how we are supporting our community through these challenging times,” Temple University stated.
