What are the potential longterm effects of the pandemic on learning and families? Parents working from home full time are now homeschooling with no end date in sight; low income families without access to the Internet are at a disadvantage; social distancing requirements are raising stress levels with playgrounds closed and playdates not allowed.

WBUR senior education editor Kathleen McNerney moderates this discussion with Thabiti Brown, head of school at Codman Academy Charter Public School, and Margaret McKenna, educator and civil rights attorney, president emerita of Lesley University and former member of the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.
