Here's the Radio Boston rundown for Aug. 21. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • WBUR's Max Larkin gives us an update on Boston Public Schools' plan to start with all-remote learning, and phase-in a hybrid learning model this Fall.
  • In our Week in Review, we talk about school reopenings, the first virtual political convention in history, and we debrief local elections. Our panelists are: Former Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift, who is now the president of LearnLaunch, and Michael Curry, former president of the Boston Branch of the NAACP and Deputy CEO for the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers.
