#163: The Opportunity Myth
By Mark Isero • Issue #163 • View online
Good morning, loyal readers. Last Thursday, The Highlighter arrived in your inboxes during the Supreme Court confirmation hearing, and this week, the newsletter is published as senators read the FBI report that concludes its investigation. It is a very troubling time for our country.
Today’s Issue: If you’re an educator or a parent, please read this week’s lead article. It’ll jolt you, no doubt, but the push will be a good one. If you’re looking for cheerier fare, check out the second article and learn what San Antonio schools are doing to desegregate. Want some inspiration? Skip all the way to the bottom and have AJ Holbrook get you to the gym.
+ I would love to hear from you! Say hello and let me know what you think. All you need to do is hit reply.
