Babies, Beavers And A Special Session At The Capitol, This West Virginia Week

Black writing on a yellow background

Another year’s legislative session is now behind us, but news of a special session this spring means the West Virginia Legislature won’t be gone for long.

In the meantime, we’ll dive into stories on education, including stories on a new study on special education and a group of West Virginia principals visiting the United States Capitol.

Plus, we’ll discuss potential expansions to passenger train services, protections for residents with Long COVID and the return of the beaver to Appalachia.

Finally, we’ll listen to the first installment of a new series on parenting that will explore the most up-to-date advice for infant care.

Jack Walker is our host this week. Our theme music is by Matt Jackfert.
