My daughter came home from school and said that her teacher made her cry. She said that he was playing a game, and made her classroom pick colors, yellow or green. Yellow was treated better than green. The green had to sit on a red line and face the wall, while yellow was given candy and did what they pleased. She and a few others began to cry. So he then let them get up and told them not to go home and tell this to their parents because it was just a game, and he was only trying to show them what black people felt lile back in the day. I was jaw dropped, I wrote the teacher and he explained everything the same except the telling your parents part. I am getting ready to go up against 3 of the staff members in regard to this activity, I would like any and all comments to help me build a strong case. It was wrong and age inappropriate. The teacher doesn't seem to think so!
