Outrageous San Fran Teacher's Lesson Plan: Pres-Elect Trump a 'Racist and Sexist Man'
"Let us please not sidestep the fact that a racist and sexist man has become the president of our country by pandering to a huge racist and sexist base."
That's part of what students in San Francisco may be learning about the 45th president of the United States, according to a lesson plan written by one teacher.
Fakhra Shah, a social studies teacher at Mission High School, wrote the lesson plan immediately after Trump's election win and it was posted on the website of the city's teachers union.
A school district spokeswoman said the plan is optional, but AP reported that it appears to have tacit support from city education officials.
A local Republican official called the lesson plan "inappropriate propaganda that unfairly demonizes not only the campaign that Donald Trump, the winner, ran, but also all of the people who voted for him."
Shah said she wrote the lesson plan because students, including some who are in the country illegally, are fearful of deportation by Trump.
"We're calling him out," she said. "If he's our president, I have the right to hold him accountable and ask him to take a stance that is anti-hate and anti-racist."
About 2,000 San Francisco students walked out of class last week to protest Trump's victory and Mayor Ed Lee declared that the city would continue its "sanctuary" policies for illegal immigrants.
