The Twitter names next to each link belong to the authors, publications, and the people who bring them to my attention.

Paper Books
Paper books linked to stronger readers in an international study – There’s a lot to like about digital books. They’re lighter in the backpack and often cheaper than paper books. But a new international report suggests that physical books may be important to raising children who become strong readers. @jillbarshay @hechingerreport @MindShiftKQED

School Meals
School Meals and Academic Achievement – Our brains require a lot of energy to think. Around 20% of our daily calories go toward fueling the brain. @DrSilverFox @AceThatTest

Back to School COVID Myths – It’s popular to say that hybrid learning is negatively impacting poor students who generally attend schools with lots of discipline issues.
