NY School Cancels Mock Election Because Kids Shouted ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!’
Rather than vote for presidential nominees Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in a mock election, children at one elementary school will learn about democracy by voting on their favorite school lunch.
A New York elementary school canceled its mock election because some of the kids were making “negative rhetoric about minorities,” and shouting “Trump! Trump! Trump!”
“Teachers have said they’ve heard some kids in the cafeteria chanting ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!’ or saying they don’t want Muslims here,” Glen Rogers, principal of Jericho Elementary School on Long Island, told ABC News affiliate Wednesday.
“Some people think Clinton is not good, some people think Trump is not good. So there were a lot of arguments going on and I don’t like that,” one student told ABC News.
Administrators canceled the mock election this cycle to prevent minority students “from feeling uncomfortable,” Rogers said.
“I mean, kids often repeat what they hear on the TV or the news, but it doesn’t mean it’s OK,” Rogers said. “We have a diverse community here. We want all our students to feel valued.”
