Congresswoman Jahana Hayes Weighs In On School Reopenings

Aug 6, 2020

How does a national teacher of the year - turned Congresswoman - view school reopening plans in Connecticut? This hour, we talk with Congresswoman Jahana Hayes, who represents Connecticut’s Fifth District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The freshman lawmaker is nearing the end of her first term in Congress.

Hayes is a member of the House Education and Labor Committee--we ask her to weigh in what measures need to be in place for students and teachers to return to school safely.

And how should Congress take action nationally on police accountability?

We want to hear from you, too. Are you a resident in the fifth congressional district? What questions do you have for Congresswoman Hayes?
