“Public schooling struggles with diversity. From early battles over the Bible to current fights over race, gender identity, prayer and more, public schooling — in which all must fund a single system of government schools — inevitably pits people with diverse values, needs and backgrounds against each other. But why are conflicts burning especially hot now? Covid‐​19 set the conditions, creating clashes over in‐​person instruction and masking that many saw as having literally life‐​and‐​death stakes.” (11/21/22)
