Education prof shares insights into return to school

Children haven’t physically been inside a classroom since mid-April, when Ontario shuttered schools to in-person instruction as a result of rising COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.

UWindsor education professor Lana Parker took to the airwaves to discuss what parents and students need to be aware as they head back to school. She joined Ryan Bird, spokesperson for the Toronto District School Board, for the Sept. 2 episode of the iHeart Radio podcast Life Unmasked.

Entitled “Back to the books: What to expect on the first day of school,” the discussion addressed issues ranging from safety protocols to how kids will catch up in their studies. Listen in.
