CBS – Sunday Morning

 COVER STORY: A real education: How we have failed our teachers
Since 1996 inflation-adjusted pay for a public school teacher has actually fallen, and nationwide about one in five teachers has a second job to make ends meet. Fury over those flat and falling wages helped spark a movement over the past 18 months in which tens of thousands of teachers, in conservative red states and liberal blue cities, walked off the job. But while hundreds of teachers have brought their fight for better working conditions to the political world by running for public office, others have been forced to give up the profession they love. “CBS This Morning” co-host Tony Dokoupil reports. 

MUSIC: Backstreet Boys
If you were alive in the ’90s, you probably know the phenomenon called the Backstreet Boys – a frenzy some compared to Beatlemania. With more than 130 million records sold worldwide, they remain the bestselling boy band of all time. And the boys – now men – are back with their biggest world tour in 18 years, and a new album, “DNA.” Tracy Smith talked with Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson, who have never turned their backs on each other.

PUBLISHING: New York Magazine
In 1968 editor Clay Felker, a Midwesterner whose nose was pressed against the windows of the rich and famous in New York City, and Milton Glaser, a Jewish, Bronx-born art director, launched New York, a national magazine with the sensibility of its namesake city – energetic, and full of ambition and attitude. The winner of 40 National Magazine Awards, it’s outlasted dozens of rival publications, in part through its successful spinoff websites, including Intelligencer, Grub Street and Vulture. “Sunday Morning” contributor (and New York online writer) David Pogue talks with Glaser, former editor-in-chief Adam Moss, and new editor-in-chief David Haskell about New York’s special brand of journalism.
