From an email by Rethinking Schools:
In Rethinking Schools’ fall editorial, we wrote about how students had been subjected to months of watching Donald Trump “use racist, Islamophobic, misogynist, and anti-immigrant vitriol to whip up a terrifying level of support.” We referenced an important survey by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which detailed the consequences in our classrooms.
In the past few days, we’ve heard from teachers across the country that the results of last Tuesday’s election are already having an impact on students in our schools.
The folks at Teaching Tolerance are gathering information about how the outcome of the election is affecting students and classrooms. Please take a moment to share your thoughts and observations via this brief survey.
The goal is to use these survey results to make schools welcoming places where all students can learn.
We at Rethinking Schools continue to work with educators and partners throughout the country to provide resources that promote classrooms where students are free from fear and are able to learn about important issues of peace and social justice.
