Another Slave Auction in Elementary School Kicks Off Controversy

Jessica Boyle, Virginia teacher who conducted slave auction in classroom.

Last month, we just reported that a teacher in Gahanna, Oh., held an authentic slave auction in her classroom.  Now another one springs up in Virginia, ironically, not far from the grounds where the Civil War was fought.  Of course, students, once they got home sang like a canary.

The Washington Post reported that the teacher, Jessica Boyle, somehow gathered in her mind that she should go authentic as possible and separate the white children from the black children and put the black children up to be touched and prodded and bought by the white students.

The principal, Mary B. Wrushen, of Sewells Point Elementary in Norfolk, Va., did make her apologies to the parents and children, but no one is happy with the school right now.  And all the school spokesperson could offer when asked about disciplinary action was that the teacher had never performed a slave auction before. Big whoop!  She did now!!! 

Read the rest of the story here.  She’s a scary looking teacher.  Something is definitely not right.

  1. Definitely imagine that that you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest factor to remember of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other people consider issues that they just don’t know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
