Saturday Link Love is a 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!
The New Diploma Mills, on Slate—“Nearly a decade ago, state officials decreed that starting in 2009 graduation data would factor into the letter grades assigned to individual schools. The stakes were high.”
Please Explain, by Chloe Elizabeth—“Someone explain to me why we are outlawing abortion and not fertilization treatments that generate, by some estimates, 100 dead embryos for every live birth.”
Kathryn Joyce wins May Sidney for Exposing Right Wing Hijacking After Parkland, on the Sidney Hillman Foundation—“How did you become aware that right wing think tanks were blaming the Parkland shooting on a program designed to reduce arrests at school and starve the school-to-prison pipeline?”
Kamala Harris wants public defenders to get paid as much as prosecutors, on Vox—“The Equal Defense Act would give state and local governments additional funding to close the pay gap between public defenders and prosecutors.”
