Thursday on Lake Effect: Teacher Diversity, Bonus Bubbler Talk, Grilling Tips

Thursday on Lake Effect

A new report examines how hiring teachers of color could help close the achievement gap between Black and white students. Then, our Bonus Bubbler Talk conversation remembers what life was like for LGBTQ Milwaukeeans in the 1980s. As we gear up for the Fourth of July, we learn some tips and tricks for grilling out. Plus, an essay about the longing for live theater.
