A Record Year for The Tyee, Thanks to You

In 2020, more people read The Tyee than any other year since we started in 2003. Looking back on the year-that-was may feel bleak, but there's a lot we accomplished, too.

Here at The Tyee, we've collected those successes to share with you in our newly-minted 2020 Impact Report.

We're excited to share all the details. We welcomed three new reporters and developed our editorial and management team. We collaborated with other publications and you, our readers, to find solutions. We couldn't have done it without our Tyee Builders. And we thank you.

Schools Through the Pandemic

We've followed concerns of parents and teachers since schools were first shuttered and the initial return to classrooms.

Many have felt their needs are not being accommodated, and parent-teacher networks have arisen to follow outbreaks in schools. Parents have highlighted the difficulties of remote learning for their families, and some have faced tough choices about sending their kids back to school.

Educators have wondered how to adapt their teaching to a pandemic environment, from remote learning to self-directed education to the curriculum. Kids' long-term mental health is a growing concern.
