Teachers say more students are anxious, distracted and offensive under Donald Trump
Living in Donald Trump’s America over the past year has left the nation’s youngest feeling stressed and acting hostile, especially at school.
In a poll released Thursday by the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), more than half of U.S. teachers said they’ve seen more high school students experience anxiety in 2017 than usual. The kids cited specific concerns—primarily the future of undocumented immigrants, the environment and the Affordable Care Act—and fretted about how Trump’s stances would impact their families, asking questions like “How would I survive if my dad got taken back to Mexico?”
