The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has reported an increase in hate crimes across the U.S. and is now calling on President-elect Donald Trump to speak out against the “outbreak of hate” sweeping the nation post-election.
The SPLC documented almost 900 acts of violence and discrimination against multiple groups of people within just 10 days of Trump becoming President-elect. According to the SPLC report, schools have been the most common site of these hate crimes and have had negative impacts on the students attending.
About 80% of parents whose children attend private school report being happy with the academic standards. However, these acts of harassment and bullying may have parents worried about more than their children’s grades.
