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.
