Wisconsin Teacher Reportedly Asks Students To List "3 Good Reasons For Slavery"

Share

Sometimes, there simply aren't two sides to every story, and that fact couldn't be more apparent than when a fourth-grade homework assignment asked students to write three "good reasons for slavery" alongside three bad reasons.

Dellen has also reportedly sent a letter to the parents and the students, saying: "The objective of the assignment was not, in any way, to have students argue that any slavery is acceptable".

Parent Trameka Brown-Berry, who is the mother of a 9-year-old boy in the class, says she was shocked and offended by the assignment. The letter was shared thousands of times on Facebook and quickly provoked anger on Twitter as well.

Andrea Michel, with Safe Place Meeting Group, said: 'And for it to be a Christian school, they could have said something like, "What are three good things we can do to prevent slavery from happening?"'

Despite not having Trump's sign-off, the bipartisan group negotiating the agreement is pushing forward. From that point onward, roughly 1,000 people a day are expected to lose their protections.

In response, WISN reports the school's principal, Jim Van Dellen released a statement, apologizing to parents.

In a later post, Brown-Berry said Van Dellen promptly addressed her concerns and apologized right away.

Principal Van Dellen vowed to better communicate sensitive subjects being discussed in class with parents before presenting it to students.

When Brown-Berry's son Jerome handed in his homework he wrote, "I feel there is no good reason for slavery".

"It's highly offensive and insensitive".

A Wisconsin mom is speaking out after her son was asked for a school assignment to explain why slavery may have been "good". "The bigotry and anti-diversity feelings in this country lead people to believe it's OK to act like that", Goodson said, USA Today reported. "With all of your support I was able to give my child a personal life lesson about how change starts with you". He also ensured that these kind of situations would not occur again.

Brown-Berry later said on Facebook she had contacted the principal of the school about the homework and told him she expected a verbal apology to all the students in the class and another formal apology to all their parents.

The teacher in question has not been identified and it is unclear if the teacher was disciplined or not.
