Why It's Time to Return to In Person Learning with Sean O'Leary, MD (S4:E17)
Play • 14 min

New studies from Germany, Norway and the U.S. offer yet more data to show that childcare facilities and elementary schools should remain open or re-open to full-time, in-person learning as quickly as possible. Despite these research findings, schools across the US have largely been closed to in-person learning since the pandemic reached critical mass in the U.S. in March 2020. On today’s episode, we are going to talk through these recent studies and the advocacy needed to support the re-opening of schools to full-time, in-person learning.
