Back To School In North Carolina: A Statewide Special

Jul 28, 2020

Keeping COVID-19 Out Of NC's Classrooms

School starts in just a few weeks, and no matter what districts across North Carolina do to re-open, this year will look different.

How are kids coping with plans for the fall? What concerns do teachers have about remote learning, and about their own safety? And how is the pandemic hitting school budgets?

Public radio stations from around the state are coming together for a back-to-school special. We check in with mental health experts, education officials and others to find out how North Carolina is handling the fall semester.

The special will air on Wed., Aug. 5 at the following times: noon and 8 p.m. on WUNC and BPR; 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. on WFAE; 1 p.m. on WHQR; and 2 and 7 p.m. on WFDD.
