Returning to School During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Returning to school during the Coronavirus pandemic may be a daunting task. Dr. Bart Rossi, Ph.D. discusses.

Education is a vital part of American life.  And the new school semester is approaching quickly. With the pandemic still a force throughout the country, the question is, Is it safe to return?
