Hey Article Clubbers! Hope your July is going well.

This month, we’re discussing “Private Schools Are Indefensible,” by Caitlin Flanagan. It’s about the excesses of fancy independent schools.

I hope you’ll join our discussion on Sunday, July 25, 2:00 - 3:15 pm PT. You can sign up here or find out more here.

Today I have a bonus for you: a recording of the piece, thanks to loyal reader Nancy. Even if you prefer reading in print, you’ll enjoy this audio version. I found that I got deeper into the article. Hope you enjoy it. If you do, please leave a comment to thank Nancy (and Jennifer, who has read articles in previous months).
