Our sister station WLBK is reporting that a Sycamore teacher’s avatar is causing controversy.
The cartoon avatar being used during remote learning was wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt and was posted to Facebook, prompting comments from parents. Avatars are a virtual representation of a person.
Many of the comments on the Facebook post showing the teacher’s avatar were from parents who objected to what they felt was politics being brought into education. The post has since been deleted.
Superintendent Steve Wilder says the district is aware of the situation. Wilder says the district respects and recognizes that there are a variety of perspectives on issues like this. The district is looking into the situation.
