#180: This Too Was History
By Mark Isero • Issue #180 • View online
What should students learn about in their U.S. History class? That’s the question at the heart of this week’s lead article, which explores Chicago’s striking decision to require teachers to cover the long history of police abuse in the city. Not everyone agrees.
Also in today’s issue, read about the heavy burden of student loans, the tragic loss of young lives to gun violence, and the epic rise of alternative milks. (Poor cows.)
+ Pop-Up Article Club was a huge success! Last Sunday, 7 loyal readers joined me at The Highlighter Retreat Center in Oakland. They didn’t know who was going to be there, nor the article we were going to read and discuss. But they trusted that beauty and glory would ensue. They were correct. Sign up now for the next Pop-Up: Saturday, April 13, 2-4 pm.
