Idaho Teachers in Border Wall Halloween Costumes Put on Paid Leave

Elementary school staff dressed as border wall, Mexicans. Now they’re under investigation | The Fresno Bee

KHQ News reports that the superintendent of the Middleton School District posted an apology on Facebook Friday morning after at least a dozen staff members dressed up as pieces of a border wall and Mexican stereotypes for Halloween.

Incorporating President Donald Trump's border wall into a Halloween costume is questionable at best - especially if you're an elementary school teacher.

Photos posted to the Middleton School District's Facebook page showed staff members from the Middleton Heights Elementary School dressed up in cardboard to appear like a wall, KTVB reported. "I think the primary concern is that these are employees of the district, and not just fellow students, but actual teachers on school property engaged in this kind of display".

'That’s a super tight schedule': Bears' Week 11 game vs
The NFL implemented flexible scheduling in 2006 for Weeks 10-15 and expanded it in 2014 to include Weeks 5-17. The Steelers have one other game that could still be flexed out of its current time slot - at Oakland Dec. 9.


While Middleton said the costumes were probably an instance of poor judgment, the school district announced Friday it is investigating the issue. Individuals who promote intolerance & racism do NOT belong in the classroom perpetuating their political ideologies especially to young people!

Although the Facebook post has since been deleted, screenshots of the racist Halloween costumes were taken and circulated across social media.

Seven teachers wore "Mexican" outfits which included fake mustaches, sombreros and maracas. "Again, we are better than this". No, I don't. Was there a poor judgement involved?

Middleton also indicated he did not believe there was any malicious intent. He stressed that the school districts embraces all students. Idaho DACA Students' Facebook page also posted the photos, noting that the costumes are disheartening, heartbreaking and not amusing.

Middleton reportedly made the announcement at a special school board meeting. "We have a responsibility to teach and reach all students, period".

According to USA census data, the Latino population of Middleton is 9.5 percent. According to U.S. Census Bureau data, almost 10 percent of Middleton's population are Hispanic, and the school district offers a migrant education program.
