Bullying & student safety

Bullying & student safety

In the wake of the 2016 election, we as educators find ourselves in a time of uncertainty.

Some students have questions. Some are afraid amid an uptick in racially-charged incidents at several Minnesota schools.

But you don't have to go it alone.

We've compiled a list of resources to help you talk to your students in the weeks and months ahead.

Found something we missed? Contact us and we'll add it.

On social media, connect and share with your colleagues about your classroom post-election discussions using the hashtag #ImTellingMyKids.
