Parents have expressed their anger and shock after two high school students portrayed the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump during a skit in class.
Two sophomores at Marshall High School in San Antonio, Texas, were punished after they performed a sketch titled 'The Assassination of Donald Trump' last week, according to the Express-News.
Barry Perez, a spokesperson for the school district, said 'appropriate action' had been taken, but Harold and Melinda Bean, the parents of another student, were 'angry' and 'shocked' that harsher measures were not taken.

The teacher did not condone the performance and stopped her students before they could finish, according to Perez, who said school officials had conducted an investigation.

But the Beans complained to district officials, and said they were dissatisfied with the school district's response.
Melinda Bean told the Express-News the two students should have been suspended, adding: 'Honestly I have run out of words to describe how angry I am and how shocked I am that they’re still in school today.'
Harold Bean also said the teacher should have stopped the students from performing the skit immediately after she heard the title.
He added: 'I don’t understand how the teacher can repeat an apology and be right there back at work on Monday morning.'
