School segregation, vaping and weather

Possibilities for today:

-As a segregated school in a segregated city, we talk rather often about school integration.  So today’s story about a city in Baltimore that was planned as an integrated community now fighting about a school desegregation plan might be a nice fit, today or down the road.

-Who doesn’t like talking about the weather?  As my students shiver, we can talk about how this cold front is affecting other parts of the country, like the Texas town where the “feels like” reading dropped from 92 degrees to 31 degrees in a single day.

-Another possibility: 17-year-old boy receiving a double-lung transplant in Detroit after his lungs were damaged by vaping.  Doctors say without the transplant, he would have faced “certain death.”
