PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Lab Program

As part of this PBS program, we follow and observe students from LSU Lab School as they document and report on civil rights icon James Meredith. The project is bringing a major part of American history to life through reporting on it in this high school media class, under the direction of PBS NewsHour.

Governor John Bel Edwards championed new laws to reduce the state’s once highest-in-the-nation incarceration rate. One year later his Republican opponents say the reforms are failing. Louisiana Public Square looked for answers.
