#107: Southern Comfort
By Mark Isero • Issue #107 • View online
Welcome to The Highlighter #107! All four articles this week follow topics that I’ve featured in previous issues of the newsletter. The first piece continues the conversation from last week’s edition on Charlottesville. The second piece on foster care builds off of articles in Issues #57, #96, and #103. Then please enjoy the pet photo break (dogs now outnumber cats in the series). After taking a few moments to smile, get back in there. The third piece is a follow-up to a recent scathing portrayal of Generation Z (#105). Rounding out today’s issue is a return to one of my deepest fears. (Why do I keep reading about it?) Please enjoy!

Podcast Update: There was no episode last Sunday, but The Highlighter Podcast will be back this Sunday night at 9:10 with Tim, who is the new principal at James Lick Middle School in San Francisco. Please listen in on your Monday morning commute!
You’ve come to the end of another fine issue of The Highlighter. Before we part, a few things: (1) Do you like the new reading time estimates? I do. Don’t let “55 mins” scare you off! (2) Give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down on today’s issue, and if you like, write me a sentence or two! (3) Let’s please welcome new subscribers Rebecca, Michelle, Nancy Jo, Jennifer, William, and an anonymous reader. Keep pestering your friends to subscribe to the newsletter! They’ll thank you in due time. Have a wonderful week, and see you back here next Thursday at 9:10 am.
Did you enjoy this issue?

The best of the week on race, education, and culture.
