As Gov. Charlie Baker announces plans to keep Massachusetts schools closed through the end of the school year, we speak about the impacts on educators and families.
First, we hear from Dianne Kelly, Superintendent at Revere Public Schools, and WBUR Edify reporter Max Larkin about how educators and parents are reacting to the news.
Plus, with school closings, parents will have to continue to try to fill the void at home. For some, that seems nearly impossible. We speak with Jennie Weiner, a Somerville parent who recently wrote about these challenges for the New York Times.

We also talk to Michelle Sanchez, principal of Epiphany School, about the unique obstacles preventing some families from recreating school at home.
