Five links that made us think this week:
Anyone else think former President Bill Clinton should have ended his speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte like this?
I’m proud of being an immigrant, and this only makes me prouder: A report from the New York City Independent Budget Office found that immigrant students graduate from city high schools at a slightly higher rate than those who were born in the U.S.
Emma Watson, back to school, in a movie? Check out the trailer for The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It’s nothing like Hogwarts, obvi, but we’ll take it!
Yowza! First graders learning to code? #respect
Last but not least, a big shout-out to TFA alumna and my fellow Latina Vanessa Lugo, who was honored at the White House last week as a “Champion of Change” for her outstanding role in improving education in Hispanic communities.
Great weekend to all of you. Pura vida!
