Federal officials, speaking at a White House roundtable on the topic Tuesday, said they expected K-12 schools and colleges to resume operations in the fall. President Donald Trump said during the event that he intended to pressure governors to do so.
Some colleges have said they would remain almost exclusively online in the next academic year. The push by the White House throws their plans into question.
