Motif “shot” cover, Sep. 20, 2018.

As we were preparing our annual education issue, shots rang out and 15-year-old William Parsons became the victim of gun violence in the shadow of a Providence school. For weeks, we’d prepared stories on innovative education concepts, higher ed trends and places to find the all-important late-night slice, but none of these concepts in modern education matter if kids aren’t safe in their homes and neighborhoods.

 Our cover quote comes from a speech given by Neel Kashkari, and although we may not agree with his politics, we believe he was spot-on in this section of his speech.
