After racial-justice protests across the US, schools examine curriculum, hiring and approach to teaching. David Horton, a superintendent in Evanston, called for the city's schools to give students from marginalised groups first priority for seats for in-person learning, with all other students to be taught remotely. Not surprisingly, the decision was met with both praise and profound criticism. Douglas Belkin and Lee Hawkins, from The Wall Street Journal, report on the events.
