The Montgomery Advertiser reported children were asked to draw fake guns and use wadded up paper as bullets.
One child, who is white, was allegedly asked to be the shooter in the Brown reenactment, the Advertiser reported.
His mother, according to WSFA, went on social media to complain about the assignment. She claimed a black student pretended to be Brown.
Willingham said he wants parents to come to him first if they have a classroom issue, instead of going online, WSFA reported.
The teacher has been suspended without pay, with no estimated return to class. But the superintendent said she will return to the classroom in the future, the Times Journal reported.
