WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Parents in the Watertown City School District attended a school board meeting, hoping to get answers after a teacher was put on administrative leave for allegedly putting several students through a mock slave auction.
The board did not take any public comments or say anything publicly surrounding the incident.
Two women spoke to the board while they were in executive session.
Judy Sliwinski said, “Difficult things have to be taught in order for society to move on and grow and not repeat things that have happened.”
“The lesson that was taught was very valuable, it’s a dark part of history but I think it could’ve been a very positive spin on it, had a little more consideration been given in the lesson plan,” Judy Munoz said.
The board did not make any decision Tuesday night surrounding the teacher’s future with the district.
