How is school going so far for kids and parents, in this the year of the pandemic?

One Detroit Education Special: School Daze looked at how Michigan schools compare with what’s going on across the nation. Plus, they talked with teachers, parents, and administrators about technology challenges and special education concerns.

They also hear from our local student reporters from the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs and talk with author, Jeffrey Selingo, about how COVID-19 has changed college for good.
