On Thursday, more than 1 million city public school students will return to the classroom for the first day of school.

The start of the school year comes as a school bus driver strike looms, which could affect thousands of city families.

And meanwhile, the city has been preparing for the more than 19,500 migrant children enrolled in the school system.

NY1 political anchor Errol Louis previewed the start of the school year Tuesday night on “Inside City Hall” with Madina Touré of Politico New York and Alex Zimmerman of Chalkbeat New York.
