About this Event

Going Live on KUOW's Youtube Channel at 4 p.m.

Education is top of mind both locally and nationally as schools begin to reopen. It is also a major priority for President Biden in his first 100 days in office. The President has signed a wave of executive orders indicating a much stronger federal role in ensuring schools can reopen safely. Yet several pressing questions remain: When will teachers be vaccinated? What do Covid safe reopening plans look like? What are the ongoing challenges for remote learning?

NPR's Anya Kamenetz and KUOW’s Angela King will explore these questions and more as they take a deep dive into the local and national challenges facing education and the White House.
