Hmmm. Any thoughts?
A Missouri teacher was placed on paid administrative leave after asking students to put a price on slaves for a school Social Studies assignment, a spokesperson for the school said.
The assignment was handed out to fifth grade students at Blades Elementary School in Oakville in an effort to teach them about the Colonial marketplace and the exchange of goods, according to a statement on Tuesday from the superintendent of the Mehlville School District, where the school is located.
However, one teacher included slaves “as goods to be sold” as part of the lesson, according to the statement.
Missouri? Ferguson? Former slave state? Probably a huge red state – outside of black areas.
Truman, KKK, Hiroshima?
I’m always queasy about anyone talking about slaves, especially to kids. Is this guy some sort of perv? Who wants someone like that teaching kids?
