Here’s some local news coverage of today’s public action in response to the education laws affecting our schools:

SHREVEPORT, La. – A grassroots movement — urging lawmakers to take a closer look at Louisiana’s new education reform– is taking shape here in Shreveport.

Protestors gathered in front of the Caddo Parish Courthouse this afternoon to voice their concerns.

The Louisiana Education Action and Reform Network, or “LEARN”, is behind the movement and they say they’re calling for a new conversation about public education.
