Back to school amid the pandemic – how is Berlin keeping students and teachers safe?

Hosted by

Berlin schools reopened this week amid fears of a second COVID-19 wave, with about 370,000 students returning to the classroom.

What measures are in place to minimize the risk of coronavirus outbreaks, and how are students, teachers and parents adapting to the “new normal”?

Host Sylvia Cunningham discusses these questions with Professor Olaf Köller, education expert for the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina; Berlin mom Anda Corrie and her 12-year-old daughter Sidonie, and teachers Micah Brashear and Ryan Plocher.
