"Impeachment exposed Trump’s corruption, but the confluence of a pandemic, a financial crisis and the stoking of societal divisions has roused the soul of the American people,"  @Alexander S. Vindman writes in an op-ed. https://wapo.st/39KzW5s

Though I am not fond of Tik Tok, I must say that only in America would the government band Tik Tok, before semi-automatic rifles. This is the country we live in and as a young person, I fear for the future.

This is why civic education matters. We need every high school student to pay attention.  @iCivics  @KQED Education https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/31/nancy-pelosi-william-evanina-russia-meddling-389847

When a sitting President threatens to delay a sacrosanct American ritual, you’d better listen.  #sschat  #civics  #Election2020 via https://www.newyorker.com/news/letter-from-trumps-washington/trump-is-the-election-crisis-he-is-warn... via  @The New Yorker

If you’re looking for a great focal point for middle- and high-school kids this fall, have them read John Lewis’ parting words and offer their perspective on what it means, and whether/how it changes their view of their purpose in life. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/30/opinion/john-lewis-civil-rights-america.html?referringSource=arti...

Please remember, the pandemic is not over. Racism is not over. Raise your voice for change. Stay safe.

If I am blessed to live until 80, I pray that I contribute even a small fraction of what John Lewis gave the world.  #JohnLewis  #GoodTrouble

Budgets reflect values. “Education has the power to drastically reduce crime by cultivating a productive and informed citizenry while, if treated as a system of empowerment, transforming historically neglected and mistreated communities.” https://www.edweek.org/ew/articles/2020/07/30/defund-the-police-weve-been-doing-that.html

Black students with disabilities face disproportionate and dangerous discipline measures and unequal access to needed services. Ensuring Black lives matter in our schools requires dismantling the systems and biases behind these inequities. https://hechingerreport.org/opinion-30-years-after-the-americans-with-disabilities-act-became-law-bl...

“You think of so much else in John Lewis’s life...You think of his steadfast determination and personal dignity...You think of a life at once so consequential and so admirable. And you think: Can Americans, today and tomorrow, live up to his example?” https://thebulwark.com/john-lewis-1940-2020/

 #sschat gets to the heart of it next week. What are we doing to ensure that we are teaching to help students understand th relevance of social studies to students. It may be obvious to us, but how are we bridging classroom academics with the world in which we all live.

“We have this rare moment. Everything is so disrupted, can we really refocus and re-center on students of color?” In a school year that requires reimagining education, activists see an opportunity for systemic, anti-racist change. https://www.seattletimes.com/education-lab/teaching-changed-almost-instantly-due-to-covid-19-how-lon...

There should be a national mask mandate.

Loved the “people cutouts” at Citifield behind homeplate. Only New Yorkers would make the best of an empty stadium. 😊

Listening to the great  @Howie Rose and  @Wayne Randazzo just felt right today. No empty seats to see on radio! Just a great baseball broadcast and a  @New York Mets Opening Day win! Thanks, guys!
