CEA Expresses Alarm to President Trump Over Deportation of Students



March 22, 2017

CEA is joining together with other Connecticut education stakeholders to urge President Trump to ensure that schools continue to be safe places where children, regardless of immigrant and/or citizenship status, will not have their learning interrupted.

Commenting earlier this year on President Trump's executive order on immigration, CEA President Sheila Cohen said, "Teachers strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for our students every day. We endeavor to make sure each child recognizes his or her self worth and feels secure in order to learn and grow—emotionally and academically."

She continued, "Teachers will stand strong together in support of our core American values and continue to champion generosity, religious freedom, and the importance of protecting our most vulnerable."
