City, GSU need to come together

Judson’s work has not been easy: he is often met with roadblocks by a city administration and alumni leadership that has had its way for many years.

Grambling should back university

I asked Andrus and Jones how Judson was “destroying” the relationship between the city and the university. Andrus began by saying the city was not included in discussions of the new housing being built on campus, and the city was not allowed to collect building permit fees from the new construction.

Join forces to better jamboree

From those with children needing school supplies to those who just want to help others or have fun, the jamboree is an excellent opportunity.
This event has been made possible in the past partially because of community donations and local volunteers.

HCR aimed at erasing paperwork

“We’re not talking about doing lesson plans, grading papers, and meeting with parents,” said Polly Broussard, A+PEL executive director. “Those are all directly related to instruction and contribute to the well-being of the students. We’re talking about red tape that is so out of control it is threatening to turn teachers into clerks instead of educators.”
Some of these duties could include filling out accident and disciplinary reports, forms regarding suspensions and expulsions and answering follow-up emails.
