 Troubles Inside Schools, and Will We Ever Go Back Inside Schools? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3656

This week, we revisit a simpler time. A time in which San Diego politicians were embroiled not in dismantling racism in policing or containing a global pandemic, but regulating short-term vacation rentals. Plus, we've got a trio of school stories: sexual misconduct at Westview high; black suspension rates; and how schools could ever reopen. And on the second half of the show, city attorney candidate Cory Briggs discusses his history suing the city, police and how he would run the office. Keep up with all our big investigations and daily stories with The Morning Report. Subscribe at vosd.org/morning.
