Elementary School Teachers Dressed As MAGA Border Wall For Halloween

Elementary School Teachers Dressed As MAGA Border Wall For Halloween

In one photo, several staffers are lined up forming a brick wall with Trump's famous "Make America Great Again" phrase displayed, a reference to Trump's long-promised border wall.

KTVB reported that 14 Middleton School District staff members have been placed on paid administrative leave after the Halloween photos were posted to the school district Facebook page. "All employers and schools must act responsibly to avoid sanctioning displays and other conduct that could give rise to this type of discrimination not only because they have a legal responsibility to do [so] but also because it is the right thing to do".

Middleton reportedly made the announcement at a special school board meeting.

The photos were posted from the Middleton School District's Facebook page with a caption that said, in part, "It was a great day to be a Heights Hawk!" No, I don't. Was there a poor judgment involved?

An elementary school in Idaho has been on the receiving end of lots of criticism this week after a group of teachers wore offensive Halloween costumes that quickly went viral.

"We are better than this, we embrace all students who have a responsibility to teach and reach all students", Middleton said according to CNN.

"We now have to own those decisions", he said.

Middleton also indicated he did not believe there was any malicious intent.

"I was shown photos and troubled by the decision by our staff members to wear those costumes that are clearly insensitive and inappropriate", he said. He continued, "We already have district administration looking into the matter first thing this morning ..." Imagine how some of the students felt when they walked into their classrooms on Halloween and saw their teachers (people they look up to) dressed like this?

According to US census data, the Latino population of Middleton is 9.5 percent.

The school district has yet to identify the perpetrators, and there is no indication yet if the employees will face disciplinary action or be terminated.
