Our New Normal: How Teens Are Redefining School Life


As students, teachers and parents across the U.S. seek to find some sense of normalcy or stability two years into a global pandemic, the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs investigates how they are doing so in “Our New Normal: How Teens Are Redefining School Life.” The digital event will be hosted by the PBS NewsHour’s Amna Nawaz, and for the first time, she’ll be joined by two student co-hosts – Kate Nakamura from Kaua’i, Hawaii, and Terry Jones from Pinson, Alabama. From vaccination and mask mandates, to mental health and curriculum protests, the hour-long special will explore how teens are grappling with the ongoing waves of changes in America, and finding their own voices in the process.
