State Senator Douglas McCrory.

A recent Connecticut Mirror report found a big drop in the number of students enrolled in school in Connecticut.  How has the pandemic hurt students, and how can state lawmakers help?  One of the leaders of the General Assembly Education Committee joins us.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Legislative Black and Puerto Rican Caucus says he is trying to dispel vaccination myths and get more Black and Hispanic residents interested in getting COVID-19 shots.  

Guests:

State Sen. Douglas McCrory -- representing parts of Hartford, Bloomfield, and Windsor; and Co-chair of the General Assembly Education Committee

State Rep. Geraldo Reyes -- A Democrat serving Waterbury and Chairman of the Legislative Black and Puerto Rican Caucus

Christine Stuart -- Owner and editor in chief of Connecticut News Junkie and a reporter for NBC Connecticut. (@ctnewsjunkie)
