I cannot say enough good things about South Whitley Elementary. The teachers are simply amazing. They know every kid personally, and I don't mean the kids in their class. I mean each teacher seems to know each kid in each class! More than that I feel like every year my kids have teachers who know THEM, and know exactly what they need in order to succeed and grow. Very impressed. Its a very clean, modern school, has all the technology any of the Fort Wayne school would have.

While students are enjoying time off this summer, school district officials across the country are grappling with the issues associated with Common Core Standards, as well as plenty of opposition from parents and teachers.
As more schools return to in-person learning, teachers and parents find themselves dealing with the trauma and stress created by the pandemic.
After more than a year of remote learning, schools are finally returning to in-person instruction but how has the pandemic changed the face of public education and what will it look like moving forward?
