The Ann Arbor public school district has been online only, offering a "virtual school day" since the school year began due to the coronavirus pandemic.  A group of parents calling themselves "Ann Arbor Reasonable Return" was formed to advocate for some type of in-person classroom teaching for some students.

Lisa Barry talks with one group member, Lilia Cortina, about their concerns and hopes for restoring some in person learning for students who are struggling learning online at home.
