The Issues That Matter: Stories From High School Students
KLRN offered a public affairs journalism workshop on March 25, 2011 to the students at Travis Early College High School and instructed them on how to conduct an objective interview. The workshop was taught by Melissa Rentería a reporter from Conexión. She introduced students to new skills needed to cover a public affairs topic. Students learned that public affairs reporting could include almost anything that deals with the appropriation, distribution, handling or expenditure of public funds.

The Vme outreach initiative is made possible through funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
