Transcript for California student dresses as KKK grand wizard for school project
We move on to the school project in a high school in California raising many concerns tonight. A student dressed as a Ku klux Klan grand wizard for an assignment in history class. Marcy Gonzalez with the details. Reporter: Outrage as a student is allowed to walk around campus like this. He wore it throughout the school. In lunch, things like that. I don't think it's aropriate. Reporter: The freshman in full Ku klux Klan garb for a history project. On a former imperial wizard. It made me feel threatened. Reporter: The costume approved by a teacher. Harbor teacher preparation academy. Students immediately sharing their discomfort. It kind of rattled me. It's hard to belie she would allow a klansman to walk around. From her approval. So we asked her andhe said that -- she compared it to the black panther party. Which in my opinion are two different things. Yeah, it was troubling. Reporter: The school district now apologizing, calling it insensitive and highly inapproiate. Saying they understand the extreme sensitivity sound the issue and do not condone or support this type of reenactment. I think there has to be consequences when that happens. Reporter: The school district tells us at this point, the teacher not facing any disciplinary action and an investigation is now under way here. Tom? Marcy Gonzale thank you. From that school tonight.
