9News Early Edition from Matt Williams: April 6, 2012 - WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Louisiana News, Weather, Sports

Implementing education reform could prove harder than passing it

 


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

It was a big day at the Capitol for the governor and his education reform plans. What's next?  And, I don't just mean his signature. How do we begin implementing the changes? Plus, big morning for the crew at WAFB. We'll be unveiling the four destinations for this year's Road Trips. We invade four cities/parishes and highlight everything they have going on, take the whole show out there live. Do you think you know where we might be headed? Whether you're traveling for the Easter holiday or staying in the area, check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
