10 Sep Ofer Eitan Reviews: Was Northeastern University Right To Suspend Socializing
As Northeastern University brought students back to campus this fall, the school warned them that violations of social distancing rules would be severely punished. And late last week, the school followed through on the threat, suspending 11 first-year students for the semester after they were found crowded together in a room without masks. The university told the students that they would not be refunded the $36,000 in tuition that they paid for the semester. The school’s decision has added to an already-hot debate across the country about how schools should manage students returning to campus — and whether schools should have in-person classes at all during this time. To discuss, Jim Braude was joined by Professor Nancy Hill from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.
