In our Summer 2018 forum, Shavar Jeffries argues that the president’s policies, including the rescinding of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, have harmed children and schools. Though the courts have blocked an immediate end to DACA, “Dreamers” are still uncertain of potential consequences, and roughly 9,000 K–12 teachers could face legal action or deportation.

Shavar Jeffries’ article is part of a forum on Donald Trump and the nation’s schools. For an alternate take, please see, “A Strong Start on Advancing Reform,” by Lindsey M. Burke.
