Kati Parker is the first-ever former student of mine who is on the show!
I’m pretty happy about this.
Kati was in the “We the People” U.S. Government class at Irvington High School in Fremont in 1999-2000. As a class, we competed against other schools and eventually came in fourth at the state finals in Sacramento.
(I didn’t really know what I was doing. Good thing I had students like Kati.)
In this episode, Kati talks about being in the class, about being a reader, about why she subscribes to The Highlighter, and about her views of “The Gentrification of Soul Food,” an article which appeared in last week’s newsletter.
There’s plenty of good stuff in here, so take a listen! And if you’d like, feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts!
