Governor Hogan wants public schools to move into hybrid instruction by next month, bringing more students and staff back to classrooms.

Jim Sellinger, Chancellor of Education for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, tells how the system’s Catholic schools are managing full-time in-person instruction. Brian Kohler, principal of Archbishop Curley High School in Baltimore, says he’s observed improvement in the mental health of students since virtual learning ended.

Plus, Cheryl Bost, head of the Maryland State Education Association, shares what public schools need to do to make schools safe for return. Read the letters exchanged between Governor Hogan and MSEA.
