#95: The Battle Over Charter Schools
By The Highlighter - Mark Isero • Issue #95 • View online
And just like that, it’s June! Welcome to The Highlighter #95. For this week’s edition, I decided to feature articles from publications that most of us may not read regularly. The first, an explanatory piece about charter schools, comes from Ed., Harvard Graduate School of Education’s alumni magazine. The second, a stark warning about our current political climate, comes from the Los Angeles Review of Books. After the photo break, which honors cherry season, the third article, a memoir / how-to manual, is from Catapult, which features emerging writers. The last article, an account of last year’s wildfire in the Smoky Mountains, is from Garden & Gun Magazine, which celebrates “the modern South.” I hope you enjoy reading a few of these pieces, and please let me know what you think!

Cherry season is my second favorite time of year. My favorite time of year? Peach season (coming soon). Thank you to loyal subscriber Irene (also my mom!) for this year’s harvest.

Hope you enjoyed today’s issue! Thank you very much for subscribing to The Highlighter and for spreading the word about the digest. We’re coming up on the 100th edition pretty soon, which is pretty great, and which means maybe we should start thinking of a major celebration, don’t you think? Please let me know if you have ideas. Should there be prizes for serious subscribers? In the meantime, have a great week, and I’ll see you next Thursday at 9:10 am, the last day of school around here!
