Catherine Ariemma, a high school teacher from North Carolina really put her foot in it recently when she decided it would be a ‘fun’ idea to have the kids re enact history by having them walk around the school hallways in Klu Klux Klan garb. Who of course didn’t see it as much fun were the black students who watched on in horror.
Associated Press reports:
ATLANTA – A North Georgia teacher is on administrative leave and could lose her job after she allowed four students to don mock Ku Klux Klan outfits for a final project in a high school class Thursday, administrators said.
Okay, some school teachers let their kids dress like Santa Klaus and Tinkerbell during the holiday season and Ms Ariemma thinking that since everyone still thinks black people are slaves it would be ‘retro’ fun to have the kids don on some really exciting fashion. Of course for good measure Ms Ariemma thought it would be a good idea to film it so she could go then go home and secretly live out some fantasy in her mind, or so one wonders.
“This stuff happened in history. Do you ignore it? No,” he said. “But you certainly don’t walk the hallway in the garb.”
Ariemma says administrators will review the film and decide if it will be shown in the classroom. She said the students who wore the sheets were shaken when they realized that other students were upset.
Who is visibly upset is Ms Ariemma, for being this week’s jack ass of North America.
