3/19/202129:13

After a year of remote learning, Governor Jay Inslee has declared the spike in teen suicide attempts and drop in class engagement as an emergency and has ordered all schools to offer some in-person learning by April 19. Some educators and parents say that's too soon, while others argue it's long overdue. As school districts, teachers' unions and families struggle with what's best for kids, the lesson on how to safely reopen doesn't yet have a clear answer.
