Illinois News Roundup - March 8, 2024


It's time for our Friday Reporter Roundtable, today we'll focus on Champaign-Urbana and the Metro East.

First, we'll talk about what happened after a middle school Palestinian student was pointed out by her teacher during a discussion on Hamas. Then, calls for a ceasefire resolution are being pushed at the city-level, Mike Bost has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump, and more.
