Teachers develop “Toolkit” in response to Trump’s policies

ISMs 1024x1024

California Teachers Association (CTA) and its 325,000 members believe public education is the foundation of our 21st-century democracy. Social justice for all begins with a quality, free public education. Our public schools are where our students come to be educated in the fullest sense of that word, including as citizens of this great country. As educators, we strive every day to make every public school and college a place where we prepare the nation’s young people to contribute to our society.

Our public schools are where our students come to be educated in the fullest sense of that word, including as citizens of this great country. As educators, we strive every day to make every public school and college a place where we prepare the nation’s young people to contribute to our society, economy, and citizenry.

Over the course of the last weeks, the incoming Trump Administration has signaled its hostility to immigrants in the U.S. With a recent ban on Muslims entering from seven Middle Eastern nations and continuous enunciation that a southern border wall will be erected, he has left non-citizens in harm’s way.

For this reason, CTA has developed the Advocating for All Students: A Social Justice Toolkit to help educators and advocates:

  • Create a safe zone for students
  • Encourage local school boards to adopt resolution and join in supporting unity, resolve, and resilience in our schools
  • Report behavior incidents
  • Speak up and share on social media

Educators and education support professionals ensure our schools are safe havens for all students every day. Please use and share these materials as we continue to guarantee a quality public education for every child no matter their zip code.
