Teacher Who Distributed Controversial Assignment Back On The Job

(Richland Co., SC) -- A Richland County teacher suspended for giving fifth graders an assignment asking they justify the KKK's treatment of black people is back in the classroom.

A spokesperson for Lexington and Richland County School District Five said in a statement yesterday that the Oak Pointe Elementary School teacher was returned to work Friday.

She was the subject of scrutiny last week when it became public that she gave her students homework asking students to empathize with members of the Ku Klux Klan and their discrimination of black people.

 District officials said the assignment will never again appear in any curriculum.
