Teachers Union Claims The ‘Trump Effect’ Is Warping Kids’ Minds

Back when she was teaching sixth grade in Utah, Lily Eskelsen García liked to use the presidential election as a civics lesson every four years. She would assign her students to watch the debates and interview their parents about the candidates.

But today, she says she wouldn’t urge them to tune in for the hate-fueled debacle that is 2016.

“I’m not so sure I’d really want my kids to watch this debate,” said Eskelsen García, now president of the National Education Association, on a call with reporters Monday. “It’s really kind of disturbing what they’re hearing out there.”

The NEA is the largest labor union in the country and represents 3 million educators, roughly three-quarters of them women. It has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, and now it’s leading a campaign that portrays her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, as a schoolyard bully who’s filling children with hate.

Just do the exact opposite of what this union says to do.

The NEA and other teachers' organizations are firmly under the control of the Democratic Party, and have been for decades. They fear for their futures as powerful political entities, nothing more.

First off, why are we letting kids bully others. I don't care what words they use.
Second, it is Clinton pushing that Trump is going to deport all immigrants. Trump has never said he was going to deport the LEGAL immigrants. After all that would only leave the American Indians if he did...

I am so sick and tired of idiotic people.
All debates are ugly, this one is no different.
After the debates, maybe she be productive and teach her students how to fact check instead of being a sheeple like her.
