Miriam Raccah, the executive director of the Bronx Charter School for the Arts, joined Cheryl Wills on "Live At Ten" Tuesday night to discuss city students returning to the classroom. She talked about how the COVID-19 pandemic set children back.

“I think we’re all really concerned about students catching up,” Raccah said. “And at the same time, we know that kids are really dealing with a lot of emotional trauma from the last few years.”

Raccah also touched upon how many city schools are not just struggling to find new teachers, but retain their current staff.

“We’re all struggling to keep the teachers we have, keep them happy, keep them feeling good about being in school,” Raccah said.

Additionally, Raccah, who serves as the CEO of the Black Latinx Asian Charter Collaborative, discussed the challenges students of color face in the classroom, and how inflation is affecting educators, parents and students.
