The debate over how to reopen schools in the fall is happening in communities all over the country, with educators and families voicing health and child care concerns. But with coronavirus cases continuing to spike in other states, can New York City’s 1.1 million public school students take part in in-person learning? Or is remote learning the way to go?
Richard Buery, who previously served as deputy mayor in the de Blasio administration, joined Errol to talk about the future of learning as we face a pandemic. He also discussed the problem of segregation in city public schools and described his experience attending Stuyvesant High School, one of the city’s specialized high schools. And he talked about his new role as the president of the Achievement First charter network and made the case for charter schools.
