This time of year I’d normally be bombarded with graduation photos and party invitations. My husband and I have five children; we’ve been foster parents to 11 more, and now we’re grandparents as well. So, you can imagine I’ve seen plenty of graduations. But, the feeling this year is distinctly different.
There’s no denying it — with schools shut down, even our children haven’t escaped the impact of this pandemic.
Luckily, we have legislation pending that can help mitigate the impact on our children: HB20-1240: Early College Program and P-tech School Expansion. Technical training can provide an excellent opportunity for kids for whom college isn’t the best choice. I speak from firsthand experience.
