LA’s new school year begins in August. Each day this week, Press Play is looking at a different aspect of how people are preparing. The shift to online learning took a heavy toll on many Black and Brown students within LAUSD. Some students didn’t have laptops or Wifi at home. LAUSD says some 50,000 middle and high school students didn’t show up to virtual classes for one reason or another. KCRW talks about these problems and how to possibly make remote learning more effective in the fall.
