Colorado Edition: A Cascade Of Troubles
Today on Colorado Edition: We explore a recently completed study measuring the impact of the pandemic on the state’s early childhood education sector. We also examine the economic factors pushing many Coloradans who are struggling to pay their rent to ask for financial relief. Plus, we get an update on some of the eagles at Standley Lake in Westminster, whose saga has been livestreamed online, and we hear more about the spring migration happening now across our region.
Today’s guests include: Early Milestones Colorado director of research and policy, Meg Franko; EMC research director Suzanne Delap; and Lexie Sierra-Martinez, a park ranger with the city of Westminster. Today’s show features reporting from: KUNC mental health reporter Leigh Paterson; and the Mountain West News Bureau’s Madelyn Beck.
