05/14 - Job Market 2014

What does Louisiana’s employment market look like for job hunters in 2014?

The month of May heralds the end of the school semester and the entry of thousands of new college graduates into Louisiana’s job market. This year these job seekers will also be joined by hundreds of veterans returning to the state’s workforce as the military downsizes its troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. So, what does Louisiana’s employment market look like for these job hunters in 2014? What employment sectors anticipate the most growth? And are Louisiana’s college graduates and returning veterans adequately prepared for the jobs that lie ahead? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on “Job Market 2014” Wednesday, May 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD.

Backgrounder

According to the Louisiana Board of Regents’ most current data, a total of 37,388 students completed two-year, four-year and higher programs in 2013. There was a slight downward trend in Associate degrees; with a slight upward trend in Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees awarded. Two-year degrees will continue to rise as enrollment at Louisiana’s community colleges and technical schools outpaces every other state, surging 72% from 2007 to 2012, according to U.S. Department of Education figures.

09/16 - Pass or Fail? Louisiana’s Education System

How well is the state’s public school system really performing?

One national survey ranks Louisiana as 49th for academic achievement of public school students. Another national report ranks the state dead last. So, how well is the state’s public school system really performing? Where is there room for improvement? What will the new federal “Every Student Succeeds Act” mean for education in Louisiana? And how have the historic summer floods changed things? Louisiana Public Square explores these issues and more on “Pass or Fail? Louisiana’s Education System” Wednesday, September 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD and in New Orleans on WLAE.

The panelists are
• Superintendent Michael Faulk, Central Community School System
