Materials:

A wide open space, e.g., a classroom with all chairs and tables pushed back, an auditorium, or a gymnasium
Chairs to form a circle for the debrief
Painter’s tape to make an initial line for participants
Optional: tape or other materials to draw lines to indicate where to step back or forth
Procedures:

Have participants line up in a straight line across the middle of the room with plenty of space to move forward and backward as the exercise proceeds.
Have participants hold hands or place one hand on the shoulder of the person to their left or right depending on space constraints. Important: Make sure to ask participants if they are comfortable touching and being touched by others. If some are not, do not make them and do not make a big deal out of it.
You may give an explanation about the activity, how it is intended to educate about privilege, and what exactly is privilege, or you can send students into the activity with no such background.
Read the following to participants:
I will read statements aloud. Please move if a statement applies to you. If you do not feel comfortable acknowledging a statement that applies to you, simply do not move when it is read. No one else will know whether it applies to you.
Begin reading statements aloud in a clear voice, pausing slightly after each one. The pause can be as long or as short as desired as appropriate.
When you have finished the statements, ask participants to take note of where they are in the room in relation to others.
Have everyone gather into a circle for debriefing and discussion.

If they are tRump supporters, probably.

Why is this story only in some obscure unknown source? When even The Blaze and Faux Views don't carry it, it must be real crap.

The question isn't whether or not the parents are lying. Were they in the classroom? I doubt it.

So the parents were told by the kids. Do kids lie? All the time. Could the parents misunderstood what the kids were telling them? Happens all the time.

3. Where, in this document, is there anything that students should NOT be exposed to?

4. Where, in this document, is there anything indicating that this is part of a required curriculum at ANY school anywhere in the United States?

In other words, given the OP, what was the point of this?

Envy is an emotion which occurs when a person lacks another's superior achievement or possessions.

This I know is being practiced at schools and is just a step away from more bullshit SJW propaganda. At the end you have a group of students way in the front and another way in the back, then it is structured for 30min to an hour of discussion time. I can see a similar activity ending up in a situation that is in the OP given the correct circumstances.

When asked to comment, Principal of Western Rockingham Middle School Stephanie Wray indicated that no such incident occurred.


“In regard to your additional requests, I can not speak on any individual, however any allegations brought to our attention are investigated thoroughly and proper disciplinary action is taken if needed. Again, I can not speak regarding specific individuals due to personnel law, however the particular incident you asked about was unfounded to happen at our school,” wrote Wray.

More "alternative facts"
Like I said, it sounded like Bullshit, aimed at morons.
And look who sucked it up, and came back for more....
