Back to school around the world

The World

It's back-to-school season for many parts of the world, not just the United States. We check in on educators, parents and children in three parts of the globe to hear how schools are reopening amid the ongoing pandemic. Manuel Rueda takes us to a public school in Bogotá, Colombia. Halima Gikandi talks to a 6-year-old and her mom in a market in Uganda, where schools remain closed and learning opportunities are scarce. Rebecca Kanthor talks to parents about the COVID-19 mitigation strategies as Chinese children prepare to go back to the classrooms.
