This is the Radio Boston rundown for Feb. 26. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

As part of our Week in Review, we discuss how it is finally starting to feel we might be clawing our way out of this pandemic — albeit slowly and cautiously. We talk about Gov. Baker testifying before the state legislature over the Commonwealth's bumpy vaccine rollout, and his announcement that the state will move to Phase 3, Step 2 of its reopening and, by mid-March, move to Phase 4.

Also this week, Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education Jeffrey Riley announced he would seek authorization from the state's education board to push for in-person learning for elementary-age children five days a week in April.

Joining us for the conversation is former Massachusetts Governor Jane Swift, now the president and executive director of LearnLaunch, and Howard Bryant, author, ESPN senior writer and sports correspondent for NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday.

This program aired on February 26, 2021.
