My adolescent child comes home everyday screaming and crying which is ok I guess I don't really love him, I'm very happy with how white this school is, it makes me feel like my child is safer. I also appreciate the lack of freedom because children don't know what they want and can't think straight. I am also happy that my child, my sweet poo, my honey buns doesn't have to have conversations with people who are ... how do I say... poor, which also categorizes BLGT people. I am so happy that the genders are separated to because women and girls have to stop teasing boys by having bodies. it's so unfair to my sweet boy. Girls are to distracting, boys don't need to restrain themselves because girls aren't allowed to have bodies it's a SIN for a girl to have.... shoulders and ankles (pardon my inappropriate language) I am so happy with how this school shields my son from the real world and teaches him that he is better than everyone else because his mommy and daddy have MONEYYYYYYY -Karen Smith

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?
