Jackson’s Barack Obama Magnet School was recently designated a “No Place for Hate” school by the Anti-Defamation League for the second year in a row. 

The ADL program, which Entergy has sponsored for the past 10 years, encourages schools to commit to programs that clearly define expectations in behavior for all members of the community. Whether you are a student, educator or family member, you have a role to play in combating bias and bullying as a means to stop the escalation of hate. 

The program helps all stakeholders take the lead on improving and maintaining a school climate where all students can thrive. To be designated “No Place for Hate,” schools must complete a rigorous program involving several components. Upon completion of all requirements, schools receive a “No Place for Hate” banner that can be proudly displayed.
