Boston Schools Will Start The Year With Remote Learning

Download Audio

The school year will start for Boston Public School students in a month. And Friday afternoon, Mayor Marty Walsh announced the city's phased-in plan for how and where students will be taught this academic year during the pandemic.

Walsh said classes for all students will begin remotely. So on the opening day of class, Sept. 21, no students will be in the classroom.
But that changes as of Oct. 1.

Education reporter Max Larkin joined WBUR's All Things Considered to discuss the decision.

This segment aired on August 21, 2020.
