Southern Education Desk- School Choice, Prescription for Health with Dr. Rani Whitfield, Louisiana Travels - Eddie Robinson Museum



Southern Education Desk- School Choice


What choices do parents have in finding quality education options in charter schools, magnet schools and homeschooling? We will meet one Louisiana parent, Krystal, and her 7th grade daughter who was attending a failing public school in Louisiana. She is one of over 7000 school children in the state to qualify for a scholarship voucher. We’ll also hear from Steve Monaghan of the Louisiana Federation of Teachers who believes vouchers are not the answer to Louisiana’s education problems. SHARE



Prescription for Health with Dr. Rani Whitfield


Health officials say breathing secondhand smoke can cause heart attacks and strokes adding nonsmokers who breathe secondhand smoke at home or work increase their risk of developing heart disease by 25-30%. This month, Stasha Rhodes with Smoke Free Baton Rouge joins Dr. Rani Whitfield to discuss the health risks as well as a proposed smoking ban for Baton Rouge bars and casinos. Nearly 700 cities have passed smoking bans in bars and casinos including New Orleans in January of 2015. SHARE
