US politics, kids 

I heard my sixth-grader's science teacher this morning. "I'm glad you're all happy about the election, but you're in the sixth grade, it doesn't affect you."

Sadly, I am not the kind of parent to bust into the VC and let her have it, but I was boiling. I will bet money that half those kids are immigrants or come from immigrant families, and I guarantee the election effects them, through their families if nothing else.
