    Paper straws are soooooooo weird and gross! Are they leaching chemicals into our drinks? Plastic straws are terrible and paper straws don’t solve the problem really because they’re still single use. I say down with straws entirely unless a person with a disability has a need for one.

    The News Literacy Project is a great program. In this day and age of misinformation on all topics (health, social issues, pop culture, and of course politics as well as many other topics) it’s important for all of us, not just kids, to understand the issues that allow this misinformation to spread.

    It’s also important to understand that “fake news” as a term has been diluted by people in recent years to be anything they don’t like or that they disagree with. That is not what fake news is.

    Facts are important.

    As a former school librarian, one of the things I taught the high schoolers was how to look at information they found on the internet in their research and examine the source and information to see if it was valid. Unfortunately that’s getting harder and harder than it was in the early 2000s as it’s become too easy for things to spread.
