Illinois district includes students of color in groups with first chance at in-person learning: report

DM

A suburban Chicago school district has said students of color will get the first chance to return for in-person learning when schools reopen, citing “a pandemic” of “inequity and racism, and classism” that preceded COVID-19. Because District 65, which includes students from Evanston and Skokie, won’t force teachers to work on-site, school buildings may not be able to accomodate all students who would like to come back to their classrooms. In that event, Superintendent Devon Horton reportedly said, the district would give priority to “Black and Brown students,” and others it considered to be “marginalized” or “oppressed.”
