What 2020 taught us about the importance of the humanities

“The archive is a response that attempts to make sense of (the pandemic), to organize it, to collect it, to share it with future historians,” Tebeau said. “To have our students and others describe it is a pretty powerful way to make sense of this moment.

Gov. Polis, education and mental health officials discuss importance of kids going to school

DENVER, Colo. — In Tuesday’s COVID-19 press conference, Gov. Jared Polis and education officials emphasized a need for children to be attending school, either in-person or online, after seeing a decline in enrollment across the state.

Polis recognized there could be a multitude of reasons why students aren’t enrolled and engaged because of the pandemic. He reminded parents who don’t want their children attending in-person classes can enroll them in any online program in the state.

“We really worry about those lost kids that aren’t going to school in person and whose parents didn’t enroll them in an online school.
