Teacher under fire for controversial display in classroom

Hinton teacher under fire for controversial display in classroom

A northwest Iowa teacher is in hot water for a display that was put up on his classroom wall, a display featuring President Trump alongside photos of Hitler, Stalin and Osama Bin Laden.

It was called "Historical Bullies" and was on the wall of Hinton 7th grade teacher Ryan Gillaspie when classes began in Hinton Wednesday morning.

A concerned parent in Hinton sent a picture of the bulletin to the newsroom.

Siouxland News reached out to the school for comment and they directed us to a "tweet" they posted on social media.

The tweet says:

Speaking with parents outside the school - they had divided opinions on the issue, but none of them would go on camera to speak about it.
