Teen Fact-Checking Network; Education Pods

When it comes to identifying fake news online, there’s evidence that high school students have trouble distinguishing fact from fiction.

Also, a teacher in Houston joins us to discuss her Facebook group, QuaranTEACH Houston. More than 5,600 parents are using it to organize pandemic pods because of the pandemic.
