THAT’S BECAUSE THEY’RE STUPID, AND ENDORSED UTTERLY BY PROGRESSIVE POLITICS: How School Closures Made Me Question My Progressive Politics: I’ve never felt more alienated from the liberal Democratic circles I usually call home. “I’m well aware of the stereotypes of white parents choosing the private-school option when the going gets tough at public schools. I told myself that prioritizing being a ‘good leftist’ at the expense of my son’s well-being wasn’t good parenting, but as a red-diaper baby myself, the white guilt dies hard.”

So long as it dies, because it’s butt-stupid.
