The Friday Pitch-In

Aug 14, 2020

Gov. Holcomb aims to give schools more certainty about school funding, and consumer advocates say utilities should offer payment plans to customers with overdue bills. We get updates on these stories and more.

We also learn about a cleanup at an East Chicago Superfund site, and concerns residents have about a potential development there. 

And as elementary schools reopen, how are they making it work? We talk to an education reporter about it, and a psychology expert gives us tips on how to help kids manage back-to-school anxiety.
