Some might think it clever. “Fourteen Idaho school employees were put on administrative leave after wearing costumes of President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall and outfits that depicted Mexicans,” Neetu Chandak reported on The Daily Caller on November 4, 2018. “Middleton School District Superintendent Josh Middleton made the announcement Saturday morning after a special board meeting that addressed the costumes. A letter to the district’s community and parents outlined steps the district would take following the politically-charged costumes.”

“The plan includes having security at Middleton Heights Elementary School, having the District’s ‘Crisis Team’ to ‘upport the social-emotional well-being, for students, staff and parents,’ and cultural sensitivity training for staff.”
