Schools are closed, and Zoom is the new classroom for thousands of Bay Area students. We'll discuss how local school districts are handling distance learning, get tips from teachers and hear about what we can do to create equitable learning experiences for all. We'll also get a update on the lastest local pandemic developments and hear a specially composed reflection on life in the coronavirus era by Bay Area novelist Vanessa Hua.

And we want to hear from you. Call us during the show with your questions and experiences: 866-798-TALK or send an email anytime to cityvisions@kalw.org. Wednesday, April 15 at 9 PM.
