This week on Behind The Lens:

Following allegations of grade inflation at John F. Kennedy High School, email communication show school administrators scrambling to confirm students graduation eligibility, even after graduation day.

And a former dump site is being considered for a high school football field in a possible land swap between the Orleans Parish School Board and the Housing Authority of New Orleans. Marta Jewson will have the details.

Also, a year after Mayor LaToya Cantrell created New Orleans’ Gun Violence Reduction Task Force, a lack of information and transparency about the program has some criminal justice and civil rights advocates concerned. Michael Isaac Stein will join me.
