Time for another end-of-year “Best” list!
I’ll be adding this list to I’m adding this post to All My 2019 “Best” Lists In One Place!

4 new studies bolster the case: More money for schools helps low-income students is from Chalkbeat. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning That Money Does Matter For Schools.
The New York Times published It Was Never About Busing: Court-ordered desegregation worked. But white racism made it hard to accept, by Nikole Hannah-Jones. You won’t find a better column on the issue – anywhere. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About School Desegregation (& Segregation) – Help Me Find More.
