Colorado Edition: One's Own Way
Today on Colorado Edition: We explore the latest COVID-19 health and safety guidance and its influence on how school districts are envisioning the year ahead. We also hear about a team of homebuilders in Northern Colorado that's exploring shipping containers as an affordable housing solution. We’ll visit a class in Denver that’s teaching children about a newly popular, cutting-edge technology, and how to use it on the path toward financial empowerment. And we investigate the consequences of how crime is reported, both by police departments and news organizations.
Today’s guests include: Erica Meltzer, bureau chief with Chalkbeat Colorado; and Liam Adams, a reporter with Colorado Community Media. Today’s show features reporting from: KUNC economy reporter Matt Bloom; and KUNC’s Rae Solomon.
