Student Refuses To Change Controversial Art Project After Teacher ‘Threatened’ To Fail Him

A Virginia high school freshman, William Norman, faced a challenge when his Confederate-themed art project was deemed racist by his teacher. The ceramic hand sculpture featured the words “Robert E. Lee, history not hate.”

Initially supported by the teacher, the project’s approval was later revoked, demanding Norman to redo it a day before the deadline. Refusing to comply, Norman faced the threat of failing the assignment.

Determined to stand for what he believed was right, Norman held his ground. His parents stepped in and explained that Robert E. Lee was their third cousin, and the project celebrated their heritage, not racism.

After intervention from his parents, Norman was eventually allowed to display his artwork, but the school has yet to comment on the matter.
