After an emotional election season, educators in North Carolina and around the country are figuring out how best to address the results of the presidential race in their classrooms.

Some school systems in North Carolina have issued guidance for teachers, while others have sent messages of support for students and families. Host Frank Stasio talks with WUNC education reporter Lisa Philip about the latest.

Lisa Philip is an occasional contributor to WUNC. Previously, she covered education for the station and covered schools in Howard County, Maryland for the Baltimore Sun newspapers.
