1A Across America: Houston Schools, In-Person And At Home
Despite a mid-summer surge in coronavirus, and a near miss with Hurricane Laura, schools in Houston are scrambling to reopen and get students back into the classroom.

We check in with Houston Independent School District Interim Superintendent, GrenitaLathan, about what’s happening in Houston.
