WTUL News & Views was joined in the studio by Nuestra Voz Cultural Organizer Lydia Nichols to talk about two important policies that the Orleans Parish School Board will vote on this Thursday, September 14th, 2017 that would regulate the relationship between schools and law enforcement. The suggested policy change will prevent law enforcement officers (including but not limited to ICE) from interviewing students on campus or accessing student/family data without a warrant.  

Tune into our conversation to hear Lydia explain why these protective policies are important for the safety and education of students frequently targeted by law enforcement, what it means to support the notion that children’s lives matter, and how schools and systems can protect communities facing intense pressure from the current administration. 

Call to Action: 

  • Show your support and join Nuestra Voz at the OPSB meeting on the West Bank at at 5:00 pm at 3520 General De Gaulle Drive (details here.) 
  • Follow their organizing efforts, current campaigns, and events on their Facebook page

“I think grounding things in the physical plant of the city is always a good way to bring things forward to the present; to keep us in our landscape as parts of it, as shapers of it, as shaped by it. And I think any time that we reconsider where we are to be present in the moment to what we’re moving through- the histories, the legacies that we’re moving through- that’s a good moment.” -Sue Mobley 

WTUL News & Views was joined in conversation by Sue Mobley, Public Programs Manager for Tulane School of Architecture’s Small Center for Collaborative Design, to talk about the Small Center’s current exhibit, Sites of Resistance. The exhibit explores geographies and histories of social change in New Orleans with the intent to reclaim the city’s narrative as one with a historical role as a site of intense organizing, legal strategy, labor struggle, and civil rights activism. 

Sue walks us through some of her favorite stories (and the places that accompany them!), the present state of our local resistance narrative, and lessons learned from her work in digging through where struggle finds success. 

Join the Small Center on Tuesday, September 12 from 6pm-8pm to celebrate the opening of the exhibit with remarks from Professor of Law Bill Quigley

Sites of Resistance will be open to the public in the Small Center from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday until Mardi Gras 2018 with accompanying guest speakers, panels, and events.

To check out Sue’s other work in lifting up the voices and legacies of the people of New Orleans and their resistance, follow along with the Paper Monuments Project as they collect stories to influence the symbols and systems of New Orleans’ future as told by its people.

Episode 01 : The Charter School Scam – CitationsNeeded – Medium:

Back-to-school special!

Do you love tuning in to Counterspin from on WTUL News & Views on Mondays? This new podcast, CitationsNeeded, is hosted by Adam Johnson and Nima Shirazi, political commentators and media analysts with

Episode 1 features a discussion about charter schools and, basically, why they’re awful. They look into the agenda behind the pro-charter film Waiting for Superman, the ongoing demonization of teachers and their unions, the fudging, inflation and wholesale manufacturing of test scores that demonstrate “success”, and also try to find some silver linings among the dark clouds. For instance, the fact that everyone hates Betsy DeVos is helping. They are joined by the incomparable Jennifer Berkshire, journalist, podcaster, and education editor at Alternet.

Keyboard ist keinesfalls gleich Keyboard. Insbesondere für den Fall, dass Sie turnusmäßig spielen, ist es wesentlich, dass Sie das Instrument erwerben, das Ihnen langanhaltend Freude macht und motiviert.

Dies Spielgefühl ist hierbei ein wichtiger Faktor. Dieses Spielgefühl mag mehrfach bestimmen, inwiefern Sie auf lange Sicht Freude am Spielen haben werden. Beachtenswerte Faktoren, auf die Sie beim Kauf des Keyboards achten müssen:

In der Auswahl der Keyboards gibt es bereits in der grundlegenden Ausstattung jede Menge Unterschiede. So sollte das Gerät unbedingt einen Umfang von fünf Oktaven bieten.

Außerdem sollten die Tasten mitnichten zu schmal oder zu kurz sein. Dies wird speziell Neulingen das Erlernen des Keyboards erleichtern.

Achten Sie gleichermaßen darauf, dass die Oberfläche der Keyboardtasten so hergestellt wurde, dass Sie keinesfalls abrutschen.

Bei Ihrer Suche sollten Sie des Weiteren beachten, dass die Lautsprecher Ihres Keyboards hochwertig sind, damit der Klang des Keyboards auch langanhaltend gut klingt und mit der Zeit nicht schlechter wird.

Achten sie darauf, dass das Gerät über jegliche Anschlussmöglichkeiten verfügt, die heute zum Standard gehören. Ein USB-Anschluss ist dieser Tage Norm bei zahlreichen Keyboards und ermöglicht es Ihnen, neue Klänge einzuspielen, sowie Dateien in das Keyboard zu laden. Es ermöglicht obendrein, eigene Sounds einzuspielen und diese auf dem Rechner zu speichern.

Wichtig ist gleichwohl eine Klinkenbuchse, um dort einen Kopfhörer anzuschließen. Dies hat den Pluspunkt, dass Sie auch in der Nacht trainieren können, ohne dass andere Menschen senkrecht in den Betten stehen (und beileibe nicht mitsingen).

Benötigen Sie Zusatzfunktionen, beispielsweise die Möglichkeit des Live-Einsatzes und unterschiedliche Sounds, greifen Sie besser zu einem Instrument der Profi-Klasse.

The radio station is falling apart. Because of the broken machines, the broadcast is constantly interrupted to the point y'all are unlistenable. I donated $225 to this year's Marathon, where did that money go? Having working CD players is paramount to having a radio station. Until WTUL replaces those broken machines, I have to listen to other stations, and that sucks!

Wow WTUL, I'm embarrassed for yall today :( The DJ on air at the 9:30am air break (interrupting Democracy Now) made a total ass of himself, whining about how we aren't listening to HIM comment on the news. Meanwhile he's interrupting the family of the man killed by police in Baton Rouge earlier this week, as well as other folks connected to that story. I think it is obvious why we have compelling interviews with folks who are relevant to the news instead of an irrelevant angry man-child like Jimmy Huck. Presumably this only happened because of some kind of summertime staffing shortage, but still, we the listeners deserve better. When the airwaves aren't being hijacked by pathetic figures like him, WTUL is still one of the best radio stations in New Orleans. But please don't ruin it, and don't like people like this go on the mic nonstop, interrupting a really important story like that of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge.

A deep dish of gratitude to WTUL for playing our new record MAXWELL, MUHLY & COULOIR...many times :) COULOIR has been to New Orleans and Baton Rogue before and you're inspiring us to come back, if for no other reason to stop by the station and meet you! You now have my ear :)
