With a major winter storm closing schools up and down the East Coast this week, it seems like a good time to revisit this 2016 discussion of snow days.

In this episode, EdNext’s Marty West talks with Josh Goodman, the author of “In Defense of Snow Days,” about research showing that declaring a snow day is better for students in the long run.

The EdNext Podcast is available on iTunes, Google Play, SoundcloudStitcher and here every Wednesday.
