Skip to comments.The Trump Effect: The Impact of The 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation's Schools
Posted on 11/29/2016 2:37:06 PM PST by bobk3
In the first days after the 2016 presidential election, the Southern Poverty Law Centers Teaching Tolerance project administered an online survey to K12 educators from across the country. Over 10,000 teachers, counselors, administrators and others who work in schools have responded. The survey data indicate that the results of the election are having a profoundly negative impact on schools and students. Ninety percent of educators report that school climate has been negatively affected, and most of them believe it will have a long-lasting impact. A full 80 percent describe heightened anxiety and concern on the part of students worried about the impact of the election on themselves and their families.
Also on the upswing: verbal harassment, the use of slurs and derogatory language, and disturbing incidents involving swastikas, Nazi salutes and Confederate flags.
Since Trump was elected, media have been awash in reports of hate incidents around the nation, including at schools. Some detractors have characterized the reports as isolated, exaggerated or even as hoaxes. This survey, which was distributed by several organizations (see About the Survey for a complete list), via email and social media, offers the richest source of information about the immediate impact of the election on our country. The findings show that teachers, principals and district leaders will have an oversized job this year as they work to heal the rifts within school communities.

The Left-wing Tyranny which threatens our democracy and freedom is composed of Hollywood, the MSM and as this article shows, teachers.
Kids don't stand a chance. They are brainwashed sheep, indoctrinated from a young age by those three branches of the Left-wing army.
We have to open America's eyes.
A balanced article. It even uses statistics.
This group is like 4 radical communists with a fax machine
The Southern Poverty Law center is a Marxist organization. What would you expect them to say?
Sounds like a pretty good argument for ABOLISHING the Public School system as it is structured.
Nothing written by the Southern Poverty Law Palace is worth the paper it’s written on. Just another bunch of liars with a fancy title.
The SPLC needs a well-deserved IRS enema, and prosecuted for Hate Crimes against caucasians
They don’t seem to know Trump hasn’t taken office yet.
SPLC is a terrorist organization..................
My kids are in the Dekalb county school system in Atlanta. 8th and 3rd grade.
According to them the entire election has been thought of like a cartoon. Both candidates seemed like jokes to everyone they know. Trump winning is viewed as funny.
Mind you these are VERY diverse student populations. My 8th grader is in the minority as a white student.
The county I which my wife works is having problems. The teachers are melting down as 90% are safety pin libtards and the students are 80% Trumpers!
I don’t know why you’d give them a forum here, more people will read this now than any distribution they’d ever get.
SPLC is a massive hate group in itself. They hate everything and everyone that doesn’t comply with their thought process. Basically an ass load of liberals.
This group of far left, terrorist enabling dickheads needs to be hit with a RICO case.
Their parents are punk millennials who cannot face anything.
I can just see it now, one of those places that sells CDs to expectant parents to play to babies in the womb to give them a head-start over other new babies ... ("Fetal Einstein"?) is now revamping their line of products for the Trump Era. Guaranteed results - that your newborn will start howling in pain & rage whenever you say the trigger word "Trump!" to it. Call your local TV station over to your house to witness what the evil Trump Effect is doing even to unborn babies.
Given the orientation of the NEA, the schools will become increasingly radical as they are more and more overseen by doctrinaire Marxists.
America’s children are becoming Red Guards.
The fact that they are bitching and so afraid only proves that we elected the right person.
The Department of Education needs cleaning out just as much as the VA, the IRS, the DOJ and the EPA.
If they are scared enough to leave, so much the better.
