BERLIN, Md. (AP) - The Maryland State Education Association is asking the Worcester County school system to keep Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump from using a school for a rally.

System spokesman Carrie Sterrs tells The Baltimore Sun (https://bsun.md/1NBvOC2 ) that Wednesday night’s lease of the gym at Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin will go ahead.

Union President Betty Weller said in a statement Tuesday that “Trump and his divisive, fear-mongering rhetoric have no place in the halls of Maryland’s public schools.” She also says his “eagerness to bully minorities” would be unacceptable behavior from students.

Sterrs says the system isn’t endorsing Trump. She says the appearance is “just a facility rental,” as the system does for other organizations.

She says Trump is paying almost $5,000 to use the gym.
