This week on Behind the Lens:

Troubles continue for John F Kennedy High School, after a special education student was sent to finish out the school year at home – Marta Jewson will explain.

Also: infrastructure repairs. The Sewerage and Water Board needs money to overhaul the city’s sewer system – a major project that’s been ongoing for decades. Michael Isaac Stein has that story.

And – a record number of women are running for seats in the Louisiana legislature – but the state still ranks in the bottom five when it comes to women holding elected office. We talk with Tulane political science professor Mirya Holman.
