Students wear masks at a school in Baghdad.

A year ago, we were wondering when the vaccine would be available and is it really safe to return to school?

Today, those questions are still relevant!

This hour, Connecticut Public’s Accountability Project joins us to talk about its education series including an investigation into the decisions immunocompromised families have to make this school year.

Later, we talk about the mental health needs of students. What sort of support will children need from their schools?

We want to hear from you.

GUESTS:

  • Dr Sandy Chafouleas - Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology and Co-Director of the Collaboratory on School and Child Health at the University of Connecticut
  • Walter Smith-Randolph - Investigative Editor and Lead Reporter for the Accountability Project at Connecticut Public.
