San Francisco teachers union offers anti-Trump lesson plan


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The union representing San Francisco’s public school teachers is circulating a classroom lesson plan that calls President-elect Donald Trump a racist and sexist man.

The United Educators of San Francisco posted the plan on its website and distributed the plan via an email newsletter. The union represents about 6,000 members.

Union spokesman Matthew Hardy says Wednesday he does not know how many teachers have used the plan outlined by a Mission High School teacher.

The Nov. 9 plan encourages teachers to talk to students about how they feel about the election results. The plan encourages teachers to tell students that they do not have to accept the results and, instead, must fight for justice.

More than 2,000 students walked out of class last week to protest the new president.
