School system apologizes for video mocking George Floyd
SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) — Officials with a North Carolina school system are apologizing for a video in which students are reenacting the murder of George Floyd.
News outlets report officials with Rowan-Salisbury Schools says it learned about the video featuring students from Erwin Middle School on Monday.
The video is only a few seconds long, but shows one student on the floor in a classroom while another kneels on the other student’s neck.
