Will 'Race to the Top' Leave No Child Behind?

Hosted by

President Obama's "Race to the Top" in Education features charter schools and standardized tests to evaluate teacher performance. Will it improve the much-criticized "No Child Left Behind" or is it the same, only more so?  Also, Iraqi intelligence uncovers bomb and assassination plots. On Reporter's Notebook, can a man who admits he killed a doctor known to perform abortions defend himself by claiming he saved the lives of unborn children?
