#165: Jim Crow Education
By Mark Isero • Issue #165 • View online
Happy Thursday, Loyal Readers! Thank you for opening today’s issue of The Highlighter. This week’s lead article focuses on the effects of school segregation on our society when we believe that white children should receive better resources than children of color. In The Highlighter #125, Nikole Hannah-Jones said, “We have a system where white people control the outcomes, and the outcome that most white Americans want is segregation.” In affluent liberal communities, white families may publicly advocate for more equitable learning opportunities — as long as gifted education, Advanced Placement, and other specialized programs are reserved for their own children.
If education’s not your thing, I highly recommend that you read “Comforting Fictions,” which focuses on caring for people with dementia. It will stick with you.
