A Letter from the FEAA Board
No one has been exempt from the ramifications of COVID-19 and the decisions that have been made in the effort to lessen its impact to public health. The Folk Education Association of America recognizes that our network schools in the Folk School Alliance community are under distress, both due to the virus itself and to the shutdowns and quarantines that have been imposed. Many folk schools have had to cancel all spring classes, many have already canceled their summer classes, and many are wondering if they will survive at all. Some have chosen to pivot their instruction to online formats and others have chosen not to. Regardless of the situation our network schools find themselves in, our mission for the FEAA has not changed, and we continue to do all we can to provide support and connection to the people and organizations that make up the Folk School community. Through our mutual support, we are committed to combating the discouragement and fear that so naturally accompanies situations like the pandemic we are all experiencing. Whether you have stayed open, closed temporarily, pivoted to online instruction, or any combination of those solutions, we want you to know that we are with you and we support you. Please stay connected with us through Facebook and any other forum that works for you.
