Some Black parents say pandemic remote learning has shielded students from racism in classroom

CHICAGO - Before schools shuttered during the pandemic, Ayaana Johnson worried every time she dropped her daughters off at school.Johnson, a Black woman, says racism is rampant in her predominantly white Georgia town.

At her daughters’ school, a student once used racial slurs and told another child he doesn’t play with "brown people." She says teachers are quick to punish or reprimand Black children and Ku Klux Klan flyers can be found in mailboxes."I knew from pregnancy on that this would be something we’d have to deal with," said Johnson, who asked that the town not be identified because she was concerned about potential fallout.
