Quoted @BarackObama

This is worth a read: a thought-provoking reminder that education reform isn’t a cure-all. As a supporter of education reform, I agree that fixing educational inequality requires doing more to address the broader, systemic sources of economic inequality. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2019/07/education-isnt-enough/590611/ …

significant tweet from the president whose Race to the Top program was one of the most ambitious federal education reforms in American history.

I couldn't get to the end of this great @AnnieLowrey piece without getting Fran Lebowitz's voice in my head: "Without these tourists, New York would be fantastic. I don’t want them to come. Stay home! ... If you’re coming here, you better be immigrating."

We kicked off an exciting project to reflect on women winning the right to vote 100 years ago. The history of the suffrage movement is complex and—at times—ugly. We will try to explore it all.

😬 "When the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified, in 1920, after decades of debate, protest, and legal struggle, it was mentioned in The Atlantic only as a cynical afterthought..."

@rachael_rallen has just informed me she is Team Ellen, which is tough to hear. But lots of strangers in the Letters inbox this morning have the right idea.

According to @amandamull, there are two types of flight-catchers, and according to The Atlantic Daily newsletter, I am an avatar of Type A (getting there early).

Which is another way of saying: The fact-checkers I’m privileged to work with are one of the least-visible elements of magazine journalism, and also absolutely indispensable.

Thank a fact-checker today!!

"It is easy to see the beginnings of things, and harder to see the ends. I can remember now, with a clarity that makes the nerves in the back of my neck constrict, when New York began for me, but I cannot lay my finger upon the moment it ended..."

"These past few days my mom and I were arguing, and watching the scene the only thing I wanted to do was run to my mom and give her a hug. I feel fortunate that I’m here, safe, with my family." https://www.theatlantic.com/letters/archive/2018/11/eighth-graders-respond-story-family-separation/574024/ …

ICYMI last year, today's a good day to revisit @JeremyRaff's documentary The Separated and these wonderful letters from 8th graders @TheAtlantic @TheAtlLetters https://www.theatlantic.com/video/index/569572/family-separation/ …
