“In 20 years, this country will be run by people home schooled by day drinkers”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in the closing of many schools. Children were home schooled by their parents. Many parents took alcoholic drinks during the day.

“You think it’s bad now?  In 20 years our country will be run by people home schooled by day drinkers...” was posted on Facebook by Sara Ferguson on March 30, 2020.
