California Students Missing School Due to Wildfires and Other Disasters – February 4, 2020

At the beginning of the school year, over 360 schools in California had to close for at least a week due to power outages, wildfires, or other crises.  That’s according to Ricardo Cano, an education reporter at the state-wide news outlet CAL Matters. Cano published a series of articles on school closures called Disaster Days. KRCB’s Adia White spoke with him about how wildfires are affecting students’ education in the North Bay and around the state.
