KLRU is participating in a pilot program for students around the country to create their own NewsHour Reports to be shared on NewsHour Extra (the student and teacher web site of the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer). The program, called Student Reporting Labs, teams up individual classrooms with local area journalists, and the national NewsHour Team.
In Austin, KLRU is the sponsoring station for these students and KUT is helping to mentor them. This year we are working with students from Academy for Global Studies and the Media Lab at Austin High School.
Check out Austin High School students Joanne Troutner and Lee Mendez’s report on climate change on the NewsHour Extra site.
