Description:
A teacher in Nassau County is apologizing for her assignment on the topic of slavery. Many raised concerns about the assignment - and now the school is investigating. Students and parents at J.W. Dodd Middle School in Freeport remain in disbelief over a slavery lesson given by the teacher in an 8th-grade social studies class. The assigment was to write captions on pictures of African-American slaves, but according to the district, the teacher told her class to "make it funny..and don't bore me." "What would make you say something like that? To give an assignment like that in the first place? It's just unthinkable," said Dave, a parent at the school.
