‘Advocacy at Its Finest’: National Teacher of the Year Hands Trump Notes From Her Immigrant and Refugee Students

May 5, 2018

This year’s Teacher of the Year will be an excellent spokesperson for public education. Here’s what she said when her award was announced:

“This year I hope to engage the nation in a conversation about how we can encourage students to experience things outside of their understanding…When we move out of our comfort zones, visit new places, listen to others’ thoughts, and share our own opinions, we become compassionate and open. This is the first step in creating a more hopeful, safer, and kinder society where everyone can be productive, global citizens.”

Contrary to what our President and Secretary of Education believe, hopefulness, safety, and kindness do not require choices or good guys with guns.
