Letters to President Trump from Fayetteville High

ABC news features letters
written (and read) to soon-to-be President Donald Trump by students in a sociology class at Fayetteville High School.

Suki Highers, the teacher, explained the project:

“The day after the election, the school was kind of an emotional wreck,” said Highers. “And I don’t think anybody knew really how to navigate it.”

So Highers came up with a solution. She gave her students an assignment: write a letter to the incoming president.

“I didn’t feel comfortable talking about it,” said Highers. “I knew the kids had a lot of feelings that they needed to get out of them, and so I decided that the safest way was to let them write a letter.”
The views are wide-ranging. Pro and con. Seeing the students and hearing them read their words makes the piece.
