Description

A surge in COVID-19 cases fueled by the Omicron variant has meant many school districts across the country have considered or committed to returning to remote learning for the time being.

WBEZ reporter Sarah Karp spoke with parents in Chicago where a standoff between the teachers union and mayor has resulted in no teaching happening in person or virtually for the last few days.

And we hear from three mothers who share how they've been coping with the stress and unpredictability of a very confusing return to school.

In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what's going on in your community.
