On the last day of the school week, we're reporting on a presidential push concerning college attendance. We also remember the "miracle on the Hudson," and we discuss the driving force behind auto shows. And when a twin gives up her spot on the U.S. Olympic team so that her sister can go, we find a great Character Study.
On this page you will find today's show Transcript, the Daily Curriculum, and a place for you to leave feedback.
Please note that there may be a delay between the time when the video is available and when the transcript is published.
