“More than 65,800 Colorado students have no home internet access, while others don’t have the bandwidth to stream video or participate in online meetings.”
Colorado’s schools will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year, with educators doing their best to keep students on track through remote learning. Yet many families do not have adequate resources for online learning, such as reliable internet or ample technology. This article from Chalkbeat reports on an assessment conducted by the Colorado Department of Education and the Colorado Education Initiative, which also revealed concerns about meeting the needs of students’ social-emotional health during the crisis.
