Pieces to read and reflect on

 ...should you have Monday off.

This ProPublica investigation into the juvenile justice system in Rutherford County, Tennessee is the sort of piece that wins prizes, and, one hopes, major reform.

The New Yorker rarely notes anything about school board meetings, so it is telling when it does. I also thought this piece from ProPublica, which also comes from a school board perspective, was useful. 

You may have heard of Dr. James Whitfield, the Black principal in a majority white school district who has been put on leave; here is how some of his students have responded.

Very relatedly, read this piece about the experience this year of Maryland superintendent Dr. Andrea Kane.
