NEW LESSONS TO LEARN: EDUCATION DURING A PANDEMIC

LOUISIANA PUBLIC SQUARE
Wednesday 7pm
The start of school is just around the corner, but parents, students, and teachers alike have a lot more concerns this year than the average first day jitters. As we struggle statewide with surging COVID-19 cases, we are all asking: "What will this school year look like?" Louisiana Public Square will explore the issues facing pre-K through Higher Ed. On our panel: newly-named State Superintendent of Education Dr. Cade Brumley along with representatives from early learning centers, the Louisiana School Counselor Association, Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health, the Commissioner of Higher Ed and the president of Louisiana's Community and Technical Colleges.

Also airing on WLAE in New Orleans.

PBS SHORT FILM FESTIVAL
VOTE AT LPB.ORG/FILMFEST

The PBS Short Film Festival 2020 is underway and two of the 25 films nominated for the top prize are submissions from Louisiana Public Broadcasting This is the eighth straight year that an LPB submitted film has made the national festival. 

LPB’s 2020 Festival Entries

To Infinity
A dying father helps his young daughter carry an imaginary mission into space in order to reunite her with her mother, which leads to an unimaginable revelation.

Preston’s Gone
Preston Thornton, an Army veteran, was experiencing paranoid delusions at his home. After calling the Veteran’s Crisis line, deputies arrived to transport Preston to a hospital, and tragedy followed. This film asks how a veteran ended up dead and what could have been done to prevent his death. The answers lead to a broken mental health care system that’s failing Louisiana’s most vulnerable residents.

Two awards will be given out as part of the festival. Votes at lpb.org/filmfest, as well as views and likes on the festival’s YouTube and Facebook pages will count toward the “Most Popular Film” award. A panel of eight jury members will select their favorite film for the festival “Juried Prize Winner” award.

WHAT STORIES ARE YOUR NEIGHBORS TELLING?

From personal responsibility to personal risk – people across Louisiana are sharing their story with the rest of the country through the PBS American Portrait national storytelling project. The simple to use map feature at www.pbs.org/americanportrait makes it easy to see stories uploaded by state. Browse through the videos uploaded from people in Louisiana or switch to another state to watch their videos or read their submissions.

Want to share your own story? It’s simple to do!

The website offers some thought-provoking questions and prompts. All you have to do is fill in the blank. It’s a simple way to provide people with a glimpse into your own life and to share your perspective as PBS explores what it means to be American today.

PBS could use your story for upcoming specials, like Family Of Us: A PBS American Portrait Story, airing Sunday, Aug 2 on LPB. It features uplifting stories about families, and shows how that can mean different things to different people.
