#341: Fun-Size Hustle

The Highlighter
Happy Thursday, loyal readers! Thank you very much for being here.
One thing I’ve always liked about our reading community is that we appreciate articles from a variety of publications. There’s nothing wrong with The New York Times and The Washington Post. But we see those sources every day. If we want our reading to help us understand different viewpoints, we must seek well-written pieces outside our regular feed. But many of you have told me you don’t have the time to scour the internet for hidden gems. That’s one reason I started doing The Highlighter almost seven years ago. I’m grateful for your readership.
This week’s selections (from around the web) explore how we raise our children to embrace capitalism, how one Black woman experienced school desegregation, how technology in the classroom is not productive for learning, and how our country might be headed toward civil war. If you have time to read just one article, make it “Fun-Size Hustle: How School Fundraisers Teach Kids That Work Is Sweet.” But all four pieces are on the shorter side this week, so who knows what’s possible? 😀 (Let me know if you read all four.)
+ Do you want to read more but struggle to carve out the time? I’d love to hear from you. All you need to do is hit reply. (I have some ideas.)
