“A school district in New Hampshire placed a teacher on paid administrative leave this week during an investigation, school officials said, after video footage of two students singing a song with lyrics about the Ku Klux Klan and killing black people for an assignment drew outrage.
The Dover School District was working with students and educators at the school, Dover High, “to investigate and address an incident of extreme racial insensitivity,” said a letter dated Monday that addressed the district’s community and was signed by the district superintendent, William Harbron. “We are deeply concerned that an event such as this could occur.”
The teacher, who has not been publicly identified, assigned a project for an 11th-grade history class at the school, in Dover, N.H., for which students were to use events from the Reconstruction era in a Christmas carol, according to interviews with a student and a parent of a different student in the class.”
