    ATLANTA — A North Georgia teacher is on administrative leave and
    could lose her job after she allowed four students to don mock Ku Klux Klan
    outfits for a final project in a high school class Thursday, administrators said.

    The sight of people in Klan-like outfits upset some black students at the school
    and led at least one parent to complain.

    Catherine Ariemma, who teaches the advanced placement course combining
    U.S. history with film education, could face punishment ranging from suspension
    to termination, Lumpkin County School Superintendent Dewey Moye said Monday.
    Ariemma has spent nearly six years teaching in the rural county about 75 miles
    north of Atlanta.

    Really? If the Klan homeschools their children, wouldn't that make the problem worse?

    Well, the Klan has always recruited early in the South.

    Then she want to act all surprised that people got upset. She knew what effect her class would have on folks.

    If it was just for a film she should have told her class that since the Klan symbolizes terror they would not wear the sheets in the hallway but just when they made the film. If she didn't tell them that much then I can only imagine what was expressed in the film.

    Today's Klan is trying to down play the violence and pass itself off as a protest group while billing the new Black panthers as a hate group.
