Florida students wore KKK-like garb to school


WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) – Several Florida high school students are facing disciplinary action for wearing to school white sheets that resemble Ku Klux Klan garb and also for dressing in a Confederate flag.

Pasco County Schools Superintendent Kevin Browning said Thursday that he wasn’t buying the three students’ claims that they were dressed up as ghosts during Wiregrass Ranch High School’s “spirit week.”

During the week, students are encouraged to dress up in costumes.

Television station WFLA reports that the students could face a suspension of one to 10 days.
