Discussing the war in Ukraine

Led by the Upper School history department, more than 100 students and faculty gathered to discuss the Russian invasion of Ukraine. “As you can see, this is weighing on a lot of people,” history teacher Dan Polikasaid of the high attendance. He and history teachers Brian Wabler and Eric O’Connor explained the history of NATO and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s possible justifications for the invasion. The teachers answered questions from students about effects on geopolitics and the global economy, the role the United Nations is playing, and possible impacts on the United States. Upper librarian Megan Whitt provided advice for finding credible resources for information about the situation.
