Schools in the age of COVID-19
In Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ordered the closing of 38,000 schools in late February, sending teachers and administrators scurrying for contingency plans and tools for online coursework. GZERO visited Seisen International School, located in Tokyo, to get a sense of how students, teachers, and parents are coping with their new normal. The all girls K-12 school is home to students and faculty from more than 50 nations, making it a true microcosm for the global crisis unfolding. The report is part of the latest episode of GZERO World with Ian Bremmer which begins airing today on U.S. public television. Check local listings.
