Students at Augustana Academy experienced a type of schooling that was and still is rare in this part of the country. SDPB producer Brian Gevik joins me now for today's "Images of the Past."

As America prepares to transition to a Biden administration, there's talk in some circles of things getting "back to normal." In May, Governor Noem championed a "back to normal" pandemic plan. Is "normal" what we should strive for?

For many people "normal" means no healthcare, living paycheck to paycheck, being afraid of law enforcement, or no access to childcare.

What kind of progress goes beyond the symbolic? What kind of "normal" focuses on tangible solutions?
