Dejinay Reed is a 7th grade English teacher defying the status-quo curriculum that prioritizes test scores over social-emotional literacy and independent thought. Under her guidance, Harlem charter school students learn their love languages, repair family relationships, and start their own small businesses, all while the Covid-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter uprising combine to make 2020 the most challenging school year in recent history.
