Let’s Talk Youth & COVID: Virtually Back To School
Let's Talk New Mexico 8/27 8a: School is back in session online, with some districts planning to stay that way all semester and others waiting to see whether it's safe to go back in person later this fall. On this week’s call-in show, we’ll center the thoughts and experiences of New Mexico students as they kick off this unconventional semester. And we want to hear from you!
If you’re a student, how’s your school year starting out? What were you looking forward to that’s been canceled or changed? What's different this semester from when you went online in March?
If you’re a parent, what are you hearing from your student? How are you working to support them during distance learning?
