Back to School with Nicholas Ferroni

Shockingly, in the middle of the worst pandemic in a century, children and teachers are being forced back into schools at the risk of their own lives. Already, we’ve seen outbreaks in schools across the nation, and a president that refuses to bow to science in a sick attempt at political gain. Nicholas Ferroni is a nationally recognized educator and activist who educates, mentors and inspires students to reach their goals while driving a national dialogue about education reform. He joined Alyssa Milano to talk about the state of schools during COVID-19.
