Chinese Translation

How well did I translate the following text?


School began today, the three months at the village felt like a dream, and I have returned to this school in the woods. When m mother sent me to school in the morning, my heart still longed to be in the village's circumstances; all the streets, without exception, were filled with students. Students' fathers and older brothers crowded the bookstore's entrance to buy notebooks, and school and police officers went all out as if they wanted to control the streets.

(From 《爱的教育》)
