Dr. Grenita Lathan, Interim Superintendent for Houston Independent School District, joins Town Square to share the latest information about navigating the winter holidays and return to classes in January amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the district's move to have teachers use sick time, instead of teaching from home, if they test positive for COVID, and questions from listeners.

Then, Stephen I. Vladeck, professor at the University of Texas School of Law and expert in constitutional law, discusses the presidential election ratification that took place on Monday, Dec. 14, which cemented President-elect Joe Biden's win in the Electoral College. Did the continuing attempts to counter the ratification from the Trump administration and their supporters have any impact on the outcome of the election?
