NEXT Episode 212: Most New England schools are still fine-tuning their reopening plans. This week on NEXT, we visit a school in northern Maine that has started the year early — and hear about the lessons learned so far. Plus, two sisters re-examine the racism they experienced growing up in a predominantly white Massachusetts town. And we hear from early survivors of COVID-19 about their long recovery process. NEXT is a weekly radio show and podcast based at Connecticut Public Radio and powered by the New England News Collaborative. The show airs on Mondays at 9 during The Point hour, and is rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
