Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced Thursday that schools will remain closed through the end of the school year. What does that mean for students' academic progress?

Today on Stateside, we talk to Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Dingell about the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases in Southeast Michigan, and how the outbreak is shifting the tone of partisan politics in Washington. We'll also hear about what impact ending the school year early could have on the state's most vulnerable students.
