Hi there and welcome
to The Highlighter #121! This week’s articles center on themes I’ve followed in previous issues of the newsletter: urban education, gentrification, journalism, and death. If you care about education, I highly recommend the lead article. It’s best read after listening to Code Switch’s four-part series
on Ron Brown College Preparatory High School
, which captivated many of you. Please reach out if you want to talk about the article.
to loyal subscriber Jessica for winning this week’s round of the New Subscriber Contest
