Connecticut Conversations: Is School Safe?

Connecticut Conversations: Is School Safe?

Whether students return to the classroom or learn online, how should parents and schools weigh concerns around health and equity?

This hour, we’ll hear from Connecticut’s Child Advocate about the state’s responsibility to make sure each child receives an equitable education whether sitting inside a school or at home. We’ll also hear from an elementary school teacher in Bridgeport and a recent high school graduate.
