Nashville schools offer post-election counseling to students


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Nashville school districts says it is providing its counselors with “special post-election protocols” to help students in the aftermath of the presidential election.

One third-grader reportedly sought counseling after a fellow student told him he wouldn’t be able to see one of his two mothers now that Republican Donald Trump has been elected.

Metro Nashville Public School announced in a Facebook post that emotions are running high among students following what many see as “one of the most divisive election seasons in recent history.”

A school district spokeswoman did not immediately elaborate about what the specific post-election protocols are.

Democrat Hillary Clinton lost Tennessee to Trump by 26 percentage points, but carried Nashville by the same margin.
