A teacher and two students at a Las Vegas performing arts school are under fire from parents after photos emerged of a student wearing a Ku Klux Klan robe for a U.S. history project earlier this month.

The unnamed American history teacher assigned students to write a paper and perform a skit to reflect on a segment of U.S. history. Under the teacher’s guidance, the two juniors decided to dress in a full on KKK costume with robes and hoods.

However, several complaints from the community were filed with the Clark County School district after a photo of the costumed students emerged on social media sites.
