On this week’s bonus episode: Elizabeth and Jamilah are joined by Slate Writer Ruth Graham to discuss whether or not parents should hold their kindergarten-aged children back a year. For some kids, kindergarten is their first introduction to a classroom setting. Is it worth waiting until in-person classes are safe? Or should kindergarteners start getting used to virtual learning?
