Teacher Suspended After Letting Student Wear KKK Costume For Class Project

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) – The Poplar Bluff School District is investigating after a student dressed in a KKK costume as part of a study group presentation on Friday, November 9. The School District has said it had suspended a teacher who oversaw a Friday “study group presentation” in the classroom that involved a student dressing up as a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

The district acknowledged that students in a 9th-grade history class were divided into study groups and instructed to make presentations focused on amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

One group was assigned the 15th Amendment – “ensuring the rights of citizens to vote would not be denied or abridged by the United States on account of race or color. As part of the presentation, students discussed the adverse historical actions of certain organizations that actively engaged in the suppression of voter rights.”

One of the students  assigned to that group dressed as a KKK member.

Several viewers reached out to Heartland News questioning the reason for the costume after the picture surfaced on the internet.

 

Superintendent Scott Dill said the groups were in costume, representing different historical facets of the assigned amendments.

Dill, visited the classroom along with Bishop Ron Webb of Poplar Bluff’s Mt. Calvary Powerhouse Church.

Webb has been active in the Bridge the Gap movement. Following the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, which prompted national outrage, Bridge the Gap has sought to foster racial reconciliation and better ties between law enforcement and communities.

A district communications official said the superintendent and the pastor read a letter of apology from the suspended teacher, discussed why the teacher was not present in class and talked about what took place Friday.
