#337: Next Steps For Schools?

The Highlighter
Happy Thursday, loyal readers. Thank you very much for being here.
Like me, many of you are educators. So it makes sense that you may have subscribed to this newseltter thinking I’d be sending high-quality and thought-provoking education-related articles your way. But at last count, in The Highlighter’s almost-7-year history, just 14 percent (191 of 1,362) of the pieces have focused on education. Why? Though I’m sure there are many reasons, I mostly blame the pandemic. After all, who wants to read more doom-and-gloom articles about the doom-and-gloom we’re already experiencing firsthand?
But something has been shifting of late. I don’t know if you feel the same way, but I’m coming across more outstanding articles about education. Is it maybe the light at the end of the tunnel? Or perhaps we have some distance now? Whatever it is, I am happy to devote today’s issue to education, as I was two weeks ago.
Now it’s time to choose your own adventure:
  • Want the big picture view? Lead article all the way. (This is the one I recommend the most. Besides, it’s by Jill Lepore.)
  • Tired of reading? Never fear. I’ve got a podcast for you, number two.
  • Want to be disgusted? That’s the third article.
  • Want something positive for a change? Head to the bottom.
Please enjoy, and let me know what you think! All you need to do is hit reply. Thank you very much for reading The Highlighter.
