The academic year is well on it’s way. How are students and teachers in Connecticut adapting to their second semester of online learning? 

This hour, Connecticut Department of Education Commissioner Miguel A. Cardona joins us to answer our questions and yours on the state of Connecticut’s schools. 

According to a report released by the Department of Education last week, student enrollment has declined 3% across the state and twice as many homeless students are missing school this year. Might we see Connecticut schools go back to full time remote learning?

What questions do you have for the Commissioner?
