This episode contains strong language.
In Bucks County, Pa., what started out as a group of frustrated parents pushing for schools to reopen devolved over the course of a year and half into partisan disputes about America’s most divisive cultural issues.
But those arguments have caused many to overlook a central role of the Central Bucks School District’s board: providing quality education.
In Part 2 of our series on school board wars in the U.S., we look beyond the fighting and examine the pandemic’s harsh effects on teachers and pupils.
Guest: Campbell Robertson, a national correspondent for The New York Times.
