Some of the kids were wearing MAGA hats, so that justifies targeting them with a smear. That seems to be how media played it.
Even the kids school threw its students under the bus until one of the student's parents hired a crisis management PR team to push back.
And it wasn't long afterword it was exposed about deceptive, deep and ugly the smear was.
The teens didn't approach and harass a party of native American activists. It was the native Americans who made the first move, who got in the kids' faces.
And we still don't know who first put the video and distorted narrative online, only that it came by way of a shadowy Twitter account that may have been operated outside the country... perhaps by an activist or foreign entity troll farm. But it seems pretty clear media didn't care where it came from, they just repeated the hoaxy, smearing narrative to a wider national audience - apparently without making a move to vet the claims presented on social media.

CNN's Cuomo: “Mueller didn’t do the media any favors tonight and he did do Trump one...this allows them to say, ‘You can’t believe it. You can’t believe what you read, you can’t believe what you hear, you can only believe us. Even the SC says that the media doesn’t get it right'” pic.twitter.com/SgJG5INo5s— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) January 19, 2019

Reality is, the sources of the carbon (power and industrial plants, trucks and aircraft) aren't running "dirtier" than they have been.
They're just running at high capacity, logging more hours, producing or moving more economic goods.
I find the new carbon stats encouraging. Hard evidence of real economic growth.

Actually... last ten has seen the Euro in a bear market vs the dollar and the ECB was forced to borrow trillions of $ to stabilize it from collapse. Happy 2019 you drunk. https://t.co/nXBIcyGAZB— Live Monitor (@amlivemon) January 1, 2019

"My view is that Mr. Mueller has run a colossal cover-your-ass operation for the many documented misdeeds among the FBI and DOJ in cooking up this mess starting in the spring of 2016." - James Howard Kunstler
The above is part of Kunstler's year end piece that also shares his outlook for the coming 2019.
Can't say I agree with all of it, but I suspect he's dead-on with some of the gloom-and-doom he sees ahead.
Many of the "departing" teachers are departing for other school systems, according to the Wall Street Journal article. Maybe one that pays better, maybe a teaching post closer to home. Maybe some other reason. But a significant number are only exchanging one teaching job for another.
Also note, in the article, that far fewer teachers are departing teaching jobs than is the norm in other occupations.
And, according to the Journal, stats used to alarmingly declare "most on record" only go back 17 years.
In the first 10 months of 2018, public educators quit at an average rate of 83 per 10,000 a month, according to the Labor Department. While that is still well below the rate for American workers overall—231 voluntary departures per 10,000 workers in 2018—it is the highest rate for public educators since such records began in 2001.In good economy, people often step up to better jobs, ones that bring more income, better working conditions. The Wall Street Journal acts as if this is something to be alarmed over.
Used to be, the Wall Street Journal cut through this kind of B-S.
This article is spun more like propaganda than analytical reporting.

Trump's opposition to the covert CIA regime change program in Syria - in contrast to Hillary's vehement support for it (she criticized Obama for restricting it) - was one of the first & biggest reasons the CIA backed Clinton in 2016 & hated Trump https://t.co/4ZJsKOgC9T— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) December 21, 2018
