Why is it important to train our teachers on how to identify human trafficking?
Teachers spend a large amount of time with children! They know when a child is truant, they know when they are sick/how often, they meet their parents or guardians, and last but not least, they often become a trusted source. Teachers are on the front lines of fighting human trafficking. If teachers do not know the signs of trafficking, they can not help a potential student that may be a victim.
Polaris Project has released 6 Signs for Educators. If you are a teacher, please take the time to read this article.
