CASA Volunteers, B.R. General ER Closure, Francophone Mayors, French Immersion Schools

CASA Volunteers () April 3, 2015 - CASA Volunteers, B.R. General ER Closure, Francophone Mayors, French Immersion Schools


Baton Rouge General ER Closure () Despite public outcry from state and community leaders and residents, the Baton Rouge General Hospital’s Mid City Emergency Room closed its doors on March 31st. In the final hours, the hospital gathered teams to pay tribute, commemorating more than 65 years of service. Some of those health care providers will join us to talk about what the future holds.


Francophone Mayors () Lafayette City Hall resembled the United Nations this week as over 30 mayors from 22 countries attended the International Association of Francophone Mayors meeting. It’s the first time the organization has held its meeting in the U.S.


French Immersion Schools () French immersion classes in Louisiana grade schools began in the 1980’s and continue to offer grade school children a dynamic way to learn. Studies show students in bilingual settings perform better in standardized testing compared to students in monolingual settings.
