GAHANNA, Ohio —  An African-American mother and son were astonished after a History teacher at Chapelfield Elementary School held a mock slave auction,  dividing the class into “Slaves” and “Masters”. The class only had two black students in the class; one was assigned “Master”, and the other, Nikko Burton, was assigned “Slave”.

Burton, 10, was sent to his seat after he refused to be poked, prodded, and be humiliated during the reenactment.  A spokeswomen for the school maintains that the lesson is part of a “state required” curriculum.

While a representative for the school has apologized to the family over the phone, 10 year old Burton wishes that the teacher would have apologized to him personally.
