There have been a lot of strong viewpoints swirling around during this election cycle and some bloggers, tweeters, and others contributing to the public conversation support their ideas with evidence and some don’t. This blog post is an effort to provide some measured and research-based guidance for educators struggling to create safe and affirming learning environments in the current social context where acts of hate speech and verbal harassment seem to be on the rise. I aim to present a framework based in legal precedent and existing school policies and procedures to support the hard work that classroom teachers and school administrators are engaging in since the election.
