As we near the one year anniversary of Covid school closures, many continue to advocate for remote learning, ignoring the science that says in-person learning is safe and the adverse impact it is having on students’ education, mental health, and the achievement gap. 


Gov. Kim Reynolds joined Dany and Marc to explain why she’s letting Iowan parents decide when to send their kids back to the classroom. She also talks about the impact of remote learning, the power of teachers unions, and how this debate will play out nationally.


Gov. Reynolds is the 43rd Governor of Iowa. She previously served as the 46th Lieutenant Governor of Iowa from 2011 to 2017, as Clarke County Treasurer, and in the Iowa Senate.
