A north Georgia history teacher faces punishment after administrators say she let four students wear Ku Klux Klan-like robes for a historical reenactment.
Lumpkin County Schools superintendent Dewey Moye told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that teacher Catherine Ariemma made a poor decision. Administrators say four students in Ariemma's advanced placement history class donned Klan-like outfits while filming historical reenactments. Moye says students saw them Thursday and parents of a black student complained.
Moye says Ariemma is on leave with pay. A man who identified himself as Ariemma's husband said Monday she would not comment. Moye did not immediately return phone messages at home and office from The Associated Press.
