#78: School is for healing
By The Highlighter - Mark Isero • Issue #78 • View online
Welcome to Extras #78! Thank you for voting last week to rename Extras. Here are the finalists: Bookmarks, Things That Matter, Remarkables, Highlighter, The Gist, and The Longform Shortlist. My favorite write-in candidate was We Are What We Read. I’ll be thinking about these names and let you know the winner soon!

Today’s Extras is about education, lying, and staying healthy. The first article is featured as a must-read (and please discuss!). Travel to Alaska to learn how an Iñupiat community reclaims its culture and traditions through revamping its curriculum. Then come a pair of articles about lying, followed by a pair of articles about staying healthy, where issues of race and class are prominent. Thank you for reading this edition — please enjoy!

You made it! Here are three things you can do: (1) Please welcome new subscribers Sonya and Jennifer! (2) If you were moved by the first article, as I was, please consider writing a response. The Extras community (91 subscribers and counting!) is a thoughtful one, and we grow through conversation. (3) Feel free to forward this issue to a friend and coax them to subscribe. Have a great week, and I’ll see you back here next Thursday at 9:10 am!
