Teachers union calls on school to cancel Donald Trump rally; protests planned
The union that represents most teachers in Maryland called on the Worcester County school system to block Donald Trump‘s campaign from using a high school gym to hold a rally Wednesday evening.
“Donald Trump and his divisive, fear-mongering rhetoric have no place in the halls of Maryland’s public schools,” Maryland State Education Association president Betty Weller said in a statement. “Trump’s eagerness to bully minorities would be unacceptable if it came from any of our students.”
Liberal group Progressive Maryland issued the same call and launched an online petition that had been signed more than 500 times by Tuesday afternoon.
