The 21st Show

The 21st—Monday, March 16, 2020


Beginning Tuesday, all students at both public and private schools across the state will be staying home in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Universities and colleges in Illinois have also postponed in-person classes. We’ll hear how educators are handling the transition to virtual learning. 

And, researchers who study sleep say teens aren’t getting enough of it, and say schools can do more to help, by having class start later. We revisited our conversation with a sleep scientist and an Illinois school district that’s moved to later start times.
