Today, TIME published my editorial calling on President-Elect Trump to condemn the violence happening in schools in the wake of the election.
The impact of these acts is clear. Threats and intimidation mean that children focus on fear rather than learning, or stay away from school entirely. Such acts tell children – because of their race, religion, national origin, or sexual orientation – that they are not part of our country, and are not safe in our schools. They represent an intentional attack on what this country stands for, and for everything we try to teach our children.
