MJ Knefel // Let Kids Play

​MJ Knefel explains the Summer Rising initiative in NYC as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic​. Although the support for children and families is to be applauded, MJ cautions against an academically rigorous summer when what children really need is a break and a chance to play.

MJ and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.
