This is what is happening in our schools, according to reports by educators relayed in a press call with reporters Monday.
Teachers and educators are becoming increasingly alarmed, so much so that their union, the National Education Association (NEA), is going to spend 6 figures on a digital campaign and direct mail buy to help amplify their message about the alarming trend of increased bullying due to the 2016 presidential election, which has been dubbed the “Trump effect.”
Joy Bock, a middle school social studies teacher from Pataskala, Ohio, described herself as a lifelong Republican, who will be voting Democrat for first time in her life for many reasons, not the least of which is, “We must not have a bully in the White House.”
“In all of my years as a teacher I have never had to think about how to undo the harm a candidate for president is doing,” Bock explained. Teachers are used to dealing with bullying, but it’s very hard to explain to kids that they shouldn’t be doing what an adult who is running for president is doing.
