Being away when a hurricane hits your hometown is now my least favorite thing. I am cutting this trip to Mississippi short, but will be back soon to pick up my investigation after we pick up the pieces.
I will be posting some of the other learnings and interview snippets over the next several days however (for example the gender pay gap is much narrower in Mississippi, but only because men make less money. Tupelo in Lee County has a teen birth rate per year that far exceeds the national average and selected abstinence-only instead of comprehensive sexual education, what was the district’s rationale? And more) so please stay tuned.
And, if you feel like helping NYC: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email address and borough. There will be ways to volunteer over the next week as opportunities arise.
