#121: Everyone Gets Into College?
By The Highlighter - Mark Isero • Issue #121 • View online
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.
Congratulations to loyal subscriber Jessica for winning this week’s round of the New Subscriber Contest. Great work! Honorable mentions go to Kiera, Abby P, Erik, Gail, and Omar. There is just one week left, and we’re 34 new subscribers away from meeting the goal of 100. Please think of one great person in your life who is currently bereft of The Highlighter. Rectify this situation by encouraging them to subscribe. Thank you!
Also, get your (free) ticket for Highlighter Happy Hour #3, which will be at Dalva in San Francisco next Thursday, Dec. 7, beginning at 5:30 pm. HHH is a great way to talk about the articles with smart, caring people like yourself. Extra points for newbies and returning subscribers!
