Donald Trump’s rhetoric is encouraging school bullies who harass Muslims and Latinos, charges the National Education Association, which is launching a six-figure anti-Trump ad campaign.
NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia cited an April Southern Poverty Law Center report on the alleged “Trump effect.”
In the unscientific survey, teachers who visit the SPLC’s Teaching Tolerance web site reported that students from immigrant or Muslim families are fearful about what might happen if Trump were elected, reports Ed Week. The report included “anecdotal reports of bullying teachers have tied to Trump.”
Hillary Clinton, who has talked about the “Trump effect,” has released a new TV ad that “plays audio of Trump criticizing women’s looks as young girls look at themselves in mirrors,” reports Yahoo.
