New York NOW

Schools Reopening, Legislature Returns, Women and the Vote

July 17, 2020

On this week's edition of New York NOW: Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Education Department release guidance to reopen schools in the fall. We'll discuss.

Jasmine Gripper from the Alliance for Quality Education shares her perspective on how schools can safely reopen in the fall, while providing students with a good education.

The Legislature is planning a return to Albany. Bernadette Hogan from the New York Post and Josefa Velasquez from THE CITY join us to talk about that, criticism of the state's handling of nursing homes, and more.

It was only 100 years ago that women won the right to vote in the U.S., and a lot has happened since. We'll have the second part of a three-part series on women's suffrage.

Plus, a look at community health in the context of COVID-19.
