Middleton Teachers Returning to Classroom
Less than a week ago, the small Idaho town of Middleton made national headlines due to the staff of the local elementary school dressing up in what some found culturally insensitive Halloween attire. As a result, the teachers who participated were placed on paid administrative leave. Today, the school announced they would be returning to class.
The schools' superintendent in Middleton says the Middleton Heights Elementary School 13 teachers and aides placed on administrative leave over a costume controversy will be allowed to return to the classroom in the next few days.
This announcement comes after an internal investigation conducted on Monday and Tuesday.
The teachers who participated in the scandal received cultural sensitivity training. The superintendent stressed now is the time for healing and moving forward.
