Teacher assigns 5th grade students to ‘get involved in the slave trade industry … set your price for a slave’ – WATCH

MEHLVILLE, Mo. (KMOV.com) — A troubling class assignment landed a Mehlville School District teacher on administrative leave. The question asked students to put a price on slaves.

The principal of Blades Elementary School, Jeremy Booker, responded to parents after a ‘culturally sensitive’ assignment was given to fifth graders last week.

One of the 12 questions read as follows:

“You own a plantation or farm and therefore need more workers. You begin to get involved in the slave trade industry and have slaves work on your farm. Your product to trade is slaves.

Set your price for a slave. _____________ These could be worth a lot.

You may trade for any items you’d like.”
