Diane talks with Ryan Goodman, Chaired Professor of Law at New York University School of Law and co-editor-in-chief of the national security online forum, Just Security, about what we're learning - and what we still need to find out.
Ten months after campuses shut their doors because of the pandemic and moved to remote learning, many remain closed. And efforts to bring children back, in places like Chicago, Washington, DC, and Montclair, New Jersey have faltered.
Teachers unions have blocked attempts, citing inadequate safety measures while those supporting a return to in-person learning say the data shows it can be done without community spread.

To explain what’s happening, Diane spoke with Laura Meckler, Washington Post reporter covering national education policy and trends, and the Education Department.
