NEW YORK — New York City schools reached another milestone as hundreds of thousands of students returned to schools for in-person learning on Monday.

It’s a major step for the largest school system in the country, which has been cripple by a shortage of teachers.

New York isn’t the only city trying to balance the safety needs of students and teachers with the benefits of in-person learning.

Charlie Wilson, president of the National School Boards Association, spoke to PIX11 about what needs to be done to further ensure safety among the school community.
