The Highlighter Podcast #9:

Nation editor Zoë Carpenter and teacher Allison McManis

favicon The Highlighter newsletter, which comes out every Thursday at 9:10 am, is all about connecting loyal readers with high-quality articles about race, education, and culture. Ever since I launched the podcast two months ago, I’ve made sure to have loyal subscribers on the show — because what we read matters to what we do and how we are. I’ve wanted subscribers to get to know each other, and I’ve appreciated how our community has grown and gotten closer together.

This week on the podcast, there’s a big surprise. In addition to having a loyal subscriber on the show, there is also an author of one of the articles from last week’s newsletter.

I’m pleased to announce that Zoë Carpenter, editor at The Nation and author of “What’s Killing America’s Black Infants, is a guest on today’s episode.

Interviewing Zoë is social studies teacher Allison McManis, who teaches World History at City Arts and Technology High School in San Francisco. They talk about Zoë’s article, systemic inequities, and how our society allows infant mortality among African American babies to remain at a staggeringly high rate.

The Highlighter Podcast #6:

Academic Data and Assessment Manager Angelina Garcia

favicon In tonight’s episode of the podcast, I got to chat with Academic Data and Assessment Manager Angelina Garcia. Angelina is fantastic: She knows data, she has a passion for education, and she understands teachers — working side by side with them in order to support young people in their learning.

Angelina and I talked about a number of things, including why she’s a loyal subscriber to The Highlighter, why educators should care deeply about data, and why she bristled at the bar graph in last week’s article, “Homeless Students Drawn to Seattle Schools by Sports Are Often Cast Aside When the Season Is Over.” (Just so you know, we also talked about the article!)
