Students were forced to participate in an “educational” reenactment of life as a slave during a class field trip, the details will leave you speechless. Two parents have filed human rights complaints against a Connecticut school district over a controversial slave reenactment that students took part in on a class trip last year. Sandra and James Baker of Farmington, Conn., learned that their daughter participated in a four-day class trip to the Nature’s Classroom program in Charlton, Mass., during which camp instructors had students act the part of slaves. The students reportedly had to pretend to be on a “slave ship” and that their instructors were their masters. They also pretended to pick cotton.
