NightSide with Dan Rea - Rundown for January 14, 2022

Students Push For Remote Learning. Amid the current Omicron fueled Covid surge, many Boston Public School students and parents are calling for a temporary return to remote learning. Staffing shortages and complaints of cold working conditions, a result of the school district’s open window mandate amid Covid, have also exacerbated the call to return to remote learning. A petition with over 7,000 signatures was sent to Gov. Baker’s office advocating for an option to learn remotely and today BPS staged a walkout to protest. Is it time for students to return to remote learning?

Where Did It All Go Wrong? The ongoing investigation into the missing 7-year-old girl Harmony Montgomery is one that raises many questions. Why did a MA juvenile court give sole custody of Harmony to her criminal record holding father instead of another guardian or be placed into DCF?

Dan explores all of these questions and asks how so many people could let Harmony slip through the cracks.

Can it get any worse?
