Share this article


Teachers at a primary school in the US have come under fire for their questionable Halloween costumes.

One group of teachers dressed up as a border wall with the phrase "Make America Great Again" on it.

While another group wore sombreros, carrying maracas and wore fake black moustaches.

An apology from the superintendent was issued for the "clearly insensitive and inappropriate" costumes.

Here's what they wore to celebrate Halloween:
