Today's OneWord: District
The school district had been closed for five years - every single school shut down. Students were bused to the adjacent city to complete their education, sitting in desks older than their grandparents, still using chalkboards to write out equations and spelling lists. I visited the high school - Smith High School, as it was blandly named - and was reminded of the years preceding the Civil War.
