St. Louis Post-Dispatch education reporter Blythe Bernhard put the school reopening situation in stark terms in a story last week.

“No public school in St. Louis city or county will open five days a week to all students this fall,” she wrote. “No private school is likely to open 100% online.”

On Monday’s St. Louis on the Air, host Sarah Fenske talked with Bernhard about why some local private schools are seeing rising enrollment for the fall semester and why private institutions are offering more in-person learning than their public counterparts.

St. Louis on the Air” brings you the stories of St. Louis and the people who live, work and create in our region. The show is hosted by Sarah Fenske and produced by Alex Heuer, Emily Woodbury, Evie Hemphill and Lara Hamdan. The audio engineer is Aaron Doerr.
