NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Schools across Tennessee and throughout the nation, had to figure out how to figure out if children would go back to in person classes, or keep them at home with virtual instruction. As the new school year starts, one of the concerns is how the COVID-19 pandemic will force students of color getting left behind. On today's Urban Outlook, we are joined by Dr. Gilman Whiting, who is the Director of Graduate Studies at Vanderbilt University, and also is the Director of the Scholar Identity Institute. We'll talk about the impact of virtual learning on children of color, the implications, and how we can lessen the effects. Be sure to watch this important conversation.
