The Trump Effect: The Impact of The 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation's Schools

EvilIn the first days after the 2016 presidential election, the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Tolerance project administered an online survey to K–12 educators from across the country. Over 10,000 teachers, counselors, administrators and others who work in schools have responded.
