The coronavirus crisis had forced school districts across Michigan to close down all K-12 school buildings for the rest of the academic year.  But, learning will go on for students.  Ann Arbor Public Schools superintendent Dr. Jeanice Swift joined  WEMU's David Fair to discuss distance learning, academic equity, the achievement gap, and the heartbreak high school seniors are experiencing.
