What are they teaching children about elections?

Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit)
"Just an observation: When schools treat an election as a traumatic event — often via their programs on “diversity and inclusion” — they are in fact telling students who voted for the “traumatic” candidate that they aren’t welcome as members of the community. Saying that there’s only one acceptable outcome for an election doesn’t promote diversity, and it makes students who supported the other candidate feel excluded."

Michael Smith adds: But when you think about it, the entirety of the progressive institutions are treating this election as if it was a "traumatic" event on par with a death, a natural disaster or an armed invasion. It is a "safe" way to signal to the coalition of their various tribes that there was only one correct answer, everybody else got it wrong and they are still superior.
