Saturday Link Love is a new feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.
We’re Losing Tens of Thousands of Black Teachers. Here’s why. on Mother Jones—“In Philadelphia, the number of black teachers declined by 18.5 percent between 2001 and 2012. In Chicago, the black teacher population dropped by nearly 40 percent. And in New Orleans, there was a 62 percent drop in the number of black teachers.”
How Right-Wing Media Saved Obamacare, on The Atlantic—“This is the largely forgotten context that helps explain why my colleague David Frum could not have possibly succeeded in persuading elites on the right to work with Democrats to improve Obamacare (rather than guarantee that it would pass without any Republican input).”Prince Charles and Princess Diana Height Situation Explained, on Family Inequality—“By then it hit the international press, which apparently has had the same decimation of the reportorial workforce that we’ve had here, so they write articles about tweets where the only background information provided is from other tweets in the thread.”
Vice President Pence’s “never dine alone with a woman” rule isn’t honorable. It’s probably illegal. on Vox—“By law, working dinners with the boss could be considered an opportunity to which both sexes must have equal access.”
