#189: The Case for Integration
By Mark Isero • Issue #189 • View online
Most Americans say they want their children to attend a racially diverse school. But in reality, schools are more segregated now than they were in the 1950s. This week’s lead article argues that we must renew our commitment to desegregate schools in order to achieve equitable outcomes for young people and to save our democracy. But the second article emphasizes the gap between what we say we want in theory and what we actually do in real life. If you have time, please read both, hit reply, and share your thoughts!
+ Pop-Up Article Club #3 was a huge success! Eight great loyal readers gathered last weekend at The Highlighter Retreat Center to discuss an outstanding article — live and in person. Plus there was food, beverage, good conversation, and deep listening. Interested in meeting new people and deepening our reading community? Be on the lookout for another live event next month.
