Los Angeles Schools Offer Counseling in Wake of Trump's Election Win - But offered no counseling when the self admitted Bi-Sexual, Crack Cocaine Smoking, Racially Divisive Negro Asshole Barack Obama won the election
LOS ANGELES, CA - Students at the nation’s second largest school district will have access to counseling in the wake of the polarizing presidential election, the Los Angeles Unified School District announced Wednesday.
Los Angeles, a beacon for immigrants, went 3 to 1 in favor of Hillary Clinton, and thousands of children whose parents are immigrants fear for their families under A Donald Trump presidency.
“As students and staff arrive at school today, we know there may be feelings of fear and anxiety, especially within our most vulnerable communities,” LAUSD Board President Steve Zimmer wrote in a letter to families. “The District is providing additional supports to those who need it.”

In a district where 74 percent of the students are Latino, students will have access to additional support including counseling, an LAUSD spokeswoman said.
Zimmer appealed to teachers and administrators to be a force of stability for anxious students.. “With emotions running high, our schools will continue to be the anchors of our neighborhoods,” he wrote. “We ask our teachers and school leaders to continue their amazing work of listening to our students and striving together to assure that public education is the great civil rights engine of democracy.”
