#208: Dear White Teacher
By Mark Isero • Issue #208 • View online
Welcome to September, loyal readers, and thank you for opening today’s issue of The Highlighter. This week’s lead article is a letter to white teachers, which I highly recommend — particularly if you’re white, and especially if you’re a white educator. Please read it and tell me what you think.
Also in today’s issue, you’ll find two excellent articles, back to back, that will pummel you, relentlessly and without relief, on climate change, and how we’re all doomed. But they’re expertly written, and as a result, you might find yourself using less air conditioning and buying less plastic. But if the environment stresses you out, skip to the last piece, an ode to doing things in life when they come.
+ See you tonight at HHH #11! If you want to participate but haven’t gotten your ticket yet, never fear. There’s still time.

Dear White Teacher

+ Reader Annotations: I love it when loyal readers let me know they’ve devoured an entire issue. Here’s fantastic and hard-working educator Clare, owner of Tony C, basking in the glory of reading Issue #207 on an easy Thursday morning:
It must be my third year of principaling. I got to read the Highlighter. :) Hooray for historiography, Nikita Stewart, and having the palate of a 16-year-old stoner.
Great work, Clare! If you’re finding that you’re reading more articles than usual, by all means, please share the good news.
