This spring, 20,000 public high school students from low-income neighborhoods in New York City will get the opportunity to see “Hamilton,” the Broadway smash hit nominated this week for a record 16 Tony Awards. In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week, we asked our PBS NewsHour’s Teachers’ Lounge blog contributors the question, who inspired you to become a teacher? Lauren Porosoff, a sixth grade English teacher in New York City, discusses how teaching about the Holocaust has changed since she was a child in the 1980s. President Barack Obama’s eldest daughter Malia announced plans to take a gap year before she attends Harvard in 2017, an idea that is taking hold among more and more students. The Moton Museum in Farmville, Virginia, recently commemorated the 65th anniversary of the 1951 Moton Student Strike. This time of year, high school seniors and their families are thinking about where they’ll be headed to college in the fall. Last month, North Carolina’s lawmakers passed House Bill 2 which requires people to use the public bathroom that matches the gender on their birth certificate.
Presidential elections give teachers a chance to engage students in lessons about the electoral process, but some of the behavior exhibited during this primary season has posed a challenge for teachers.

The practice of tipping has coincided with a patchwork tipped wage system in America that often creates complications and woes for restaurant employees and employers alike. After Michael Lynn, a professor at Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration, paid his way through school by waiting tables and bartending, he began researching the science of gratuities. Lynn has since published more than 50 papers on the topic, examining everything from racial bias in tipping practices to whether giving after-dinner candy increases a server’s tips (the answer is yes). I also find that tipping is more common in countries that have very outgoing, extroverted social personalities and that people tip more in those countries with more extroverted personalities.
After that, then what they need to do is to establish rapport, some social connection with the table. NH: So the customer’s perception of the server is more important than their perception of the service?
We know from experimental research that some of the things you can do to establish connection like touching someone on the arm or shoulder is gonna increase tips.
I think the dynamics of tipping are such that if restaurants today were to eliminate tipping, and replace it with an automatic service charge or higher menu prices, what you would find is some people would tip on top of those high menu prices on top of that service charge. But once those people start tipping, that’s going to put social pressure on everyone else to tip, too.

President Obama will mark the nation’s birthday tonight with a celebration on the White House South Lawn, but there is another important birthday penned-in for this date on the White House calendar. There has been no word from the first family on how Malia will be celebrating her birthday, but a USO concert featuring Pitbull might be a good place to start.
President Barack Obama walks with his wife Michelle Obama (R) and two daughters Malia Obama (L) and Sasha Obama (2R) through Lafayette Park to St John’s Church to attend service October 27, 2013 in Washington, DC. The Rundown offers the NewsHour's unique perspective on the important events of the day with insights from the journalists you trust. PBS NewsHour co-anchor and managing editor Judy Woodruff addressed questions from journalism students Tuesday in the first in a series of Facebook chats featuring NewsHour journalists.
Judy Woodruff: You should study hard, be as good a student as you can be, and don’t worry too much about what you’ll major in in college.
Olivia Bosar: As a high school junior looking to pursue a career in political journalism, what should be the most important factor in my college search: location, prestige of the college, the alumni network or internship opportunities?
My view is that as long as you get a good education at a school with a faculty that cares about undergraduates and spends time focusing on them as individuals, and a place that teaches you how to think critically, you will have picked up lessons for life. Judy Woodruff: I majored in political science and didn’t know I would go into journalism until I was just about finished with college. Meg Parry: What advice would you give to cross-format journalists looking to travel internationally?
Kimberly Allison O’Neill: I was wondering how you feel the newspaper industry is being impacted by technological advances in media platforms?
Also, do you think TV news will continue to be the dominant medium people get their news from? And do you think publicly funded media will not only survive, but thrive in an increasingly digital age?
Judy Woodruff: Advice to you who are just starting out – go ahead and jump in with enthusiasm. Re: TV news – I believe a form of video will always be essential to news, whether on television or streaming online or something new. Matthew Martinez: What is your feeling toward advocacy journalism, or reporting that unabashedly takes sides? Judy Woodruff: I draw a bright line between news reporting of the type we do regularly on the NewsHour and advocacy journalism, where the writer or commentator is clearly taking sides and giving his or her opinion.
Quan Tran: What goes on in the mind of a journalist when it comes to selecting a story to report on? Susan Matthis Johnson: Danielle Skaggs from Richwood High School in Richwood, West Virginia, wonders how having parents in the military may have affected your views on war?
Susan Matthis Johnson: Emily Bennett wants to know how you got to work at PBS, and how do you manage the pressures associated with covering national events?


A grand jury decided not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown.
Last week, President Obama announced executive orders to defer deportation relief to nearly 5 million immigrants and expand border security. Ahead of the release of a grand jury decision on whether or not to charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, NAACP president Cornell William Brooks joins Gwen Ifill to discuss the importance of nonviolent protest and explain how Brown’s story has sparked a larger discussion about racial profiling and justice. As secretary of defense, Chuck Hagel has faced a number of tough challenges, including the Syrian conflict, the rise of the Islamic State and the future of U.S. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon spoke Monday night ahead of Ferguson's grand jury decision, urging calm and peaceful reactions no matter the outcome. Back in 2001, technical writer Annik Stahl read "Lamentations" by Louise Gluck, in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday.

PBS NEWSHOUR offers live coverage of President Obama's speech and the Republican response. Students can see the show as part of a new classroom curriculum designed around the show to encourage creativity and foster student interest in history. In 2015, 30-40,000 students took a year off after graduating high school, a 20 percent jump. A few years after the strike, Moton High provided a majority of the plaintiffs in the 1954 Brown v. In “There Is Life After College,” author Jeffrey Selingo examines how one’s post-college years are influenced by crucial choices made before students even enroll. How are students and school communities affected by so-called transgender “Bathroom bills”?
Over the past few decades, school districts in Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, Washington and elsewhere have found higher than acceptable lead levels in their students’ drinking water due to old plumbing systems. To understand the enormity of the famous March on Washington, we compiled a timeline of major civil rights events in the 100 years leading up to August 20, 1963.
For the vast majority of servers and bartenders in America, tips make up a substantial part of their income.
If the server does a great job, I want to express my gratitude so that is another motivation for tipping. But when we ask people how much they tipped and how they would rate the quality of the service, less than four percent of the differences in tips left by different dining parties can be explained by their ratings of service quality. That alone explains about 70 percent of the differences in tip amounts left by different dining parties. That means if it’s a slow night, selling more means selling each customer more, so up sell, push desserts, drinks, etc. I may like a server and feel a social connection to him but not give him a super great rating of service. If you squat down next to the table, you’re gonna make 75 cents to a dollar more per table.

Instead, The Wrap reported last month that Malia was working in Los Angeles as a production assistant for an upcoming CBS series featuring Halle Berry. Questions ranged from her perspective on new media and changes in the industry to her own career trajectory, along with more personal inquiries, including how having a father in the military impacted her worldview, and the most interesting news story she ever reported. What would you suggest I do now, in high school, to work toward becoming a successful journalist? BUT, having said this – you may also be governed by financial and geographic considerations.
This is far more important than learning a specific skill or getting plugged into a specific internship that will get you to what you want. I’m sitting in broadcast journalism right now at Richwood High School in West Virginia. You can specialize, but at the basic level, you need to care about the world around you and the people in it. Richwood High School is just nestled in the mountains of central-eastern West Virginia, in Nicholas County. We aren’t subject to commercial pressures that other media are, which gives us latitude to cover all the news we think is important. We are human beings, even as reporters we each bring the sum total of our life experiences to our work, and that inevitably affects how we see the world and events around us. We don’t do that here, except on Fridays when I interview Mark Shields and David Brooks for their analysis of the week’s news.
As an anchor, I have some leeway to choose some of the stories I work on; it’s different for someone who covers a particular beat – for example, health care or foreign policy. I guess it would have to be the day, as a White House “pool” reporter for NBC News, I stood just 15 or 20 feet away from President Ronald Reagan when he was shot. Now that we no longer have a military draft, we need to remember to thank the men and women who serve selflessly. And sometimes people who have valuable information don’t want to share it – either because they are uncomfortable talking about it – maybe they are shy – or because they’re embarrassed because they did something that will be criticized. Jeffrey Brown interviews writer and Marine Corps veteran Phil Klay about writing his first book and using war stories to bridge the civilian-military gap. Science correspondent Miles O’Brien explores how soil composition and the sleep schedules of squirrels might offer data on the ways warmer temperatures are affecting ecosystems. The reading was part of a NewsHour series started by former poet laureate Robert Pinksy that asked Americans to read their favorite poems. Capitol visitors’ center Monday pulled a gun on police officers, who shot and wounded him before taking him into custody. William Brangham talks to Joe O’Shea of Florida State University for more on the broader trend of deferring college. The NewsHour’s April Brown reports on how schools in cities like Ithaca, New York, are confronting the crisis of lead contamination.


That means that there is only 30 percent of the difference in tips left by different dining parties to be explained by everything else combined. Because if I’m outgoing and social, I might be more likely to start tipping in the first place. Because they want to help the server, because they want to show off, because they think the server did a spectacular job and deserves something extra.
But as those people who do succumb get added to the people who do it just because they want to for whatever reason, that increases the social pressure and it becomes this positive feedback loop and more and more pressure is put on people who otherwise didn’t want to. Just 10 years old when her family first arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Malia has grown up in and out of the spotlight.
You should focus on reading as much as you can – in the areas that interest you – and focus on writing. If the “best” school for documentary making is thousands of miles from your home, you may want to find another school that offers a strong program but one that may not be as recognized.
But I would argue that everything I studied helps me as a reporter because we essentially cover the world – politics, foreign policy, health care, education, the economy, and on and on. I didn’t discover journalism until I realized I couldn’t probably get a job in Washington working in politics as a young woman back in the late 1960s, before women were given the better opportunities they are today! I want to believe that the worst is behind us, but I know pressures continue on papers to find ways to save money and get by with less revenue.
If you love the idea of reporting, of working on stories that can move people, even change people’s lives, there’ll always be a place for you.
The best we can do is try to be consciously fair in approaching every story, make sure we reflect all sides if there’s controversy involved, and be fair in our selection of stories.
For me, I’m interested in many different kinds of stories, from the federal budget to medical research to stories about how war veterans are adjusting to life back at home. It was of course something I’ll always remember; it required making an instant decision about whether to stay on location to file a story, or follow the president’s motorcade.
I felt I would be getting in on the ground floor of an all-new and important venture in journalism; and I was right. Willis Johnson of Wellspring Church, Roger Goldman of Saint Louis University and Gil Alba, former detective at the New York City Police Department. Secretary Jeh Johnson joins Gwen Ifill to discuss the controversy surrounding the president’s action and what message it sends to those who want to cross the border illegally. Judy Woodruff takes a closer look at the reasons behind Hagel’s resignation with Thomas Donnelly of American Enterprise Institute and P.J. The demonstrators were anticipating a decision from the grand jury in the shooting of teenager Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Also, the governor of Georgia vetoed a bill that would allow religious groups to deny services to LGBT people. So basically bill size is twice as powerful as everything else combined in determining how much you tip. Other people are likely to notice that I’m tipping and to feel the social pressure to tip, so these processes that produce tipping are facilitated by certain cultural values, by certain population characteristics and the combination of factors makes tipping much more common in the United States than elsewhere.
Anything you can do to increase social rapport is going to increase your tips pretty substantially. But for most of us, focusing on getting a great education and then figuring out – or reconfirming – career afterwards is the wisest path. You may be more interested in one aspect of journalism or another, and you should pursue those interests, but take the time to learn something about the rest of what it takes to get a news story published in print, on air or online. The problem is that too many news consumers now believe that the news is free – that there shouldn’t be a cost to gathering the news. We have to remember every day, all day long, that we owe it to the audience to tell them all the important things we know about a story, and to include different points of view.
I’m always more interested in something if there’s a clear human connection – if I can see that real people are affected or that doing the story will help others understand the plight of those in a difficult situation.
And on a personal level, seeing his press secretary James Brady lying gravely wounded on the sidewalk was an image I couldn’t get out of my mind, even as I went on to spend the rest of the day reporting about what had happened. It was quite a leap, to go from NBC News to a brand new news program on PBS, but I’m so glad I did! We get to a place where dealing with important national and international events is just what we do.
We deal with so many different scenarios – and it really does depend on the motive the person has for not wanting to talk.
I find the relationship is so weak that it would be wrong to use tipping as a measure of service quality. It’s not as simple and concrete and easy and sure of success as performing these simple actions that we know increase rapport and increase tips. Is it worth it to you to go into debt, if necessary, to get an education at your “dream” school?
Our philosophy at the NewsHour is that it ‘s up to our audience to decide what to think – it is not our job to tell them.
As a reporter, I was trained to understand the public doesn’t care what I think, or what my opinion is.
I also have a personal interest in disability issues because I have a son with physical disabilities.
We have to tailor our approach to the person: persuade them why they should be relaxed, or why it’s worth it to them to discuss something publicly.

Reporters have to earn a living in order to do their jobs, and we need good reporters to dig and find answers to the questions we have as citizens about what’s going on in the world around us, in our nation and in our community. My job is to report, and sometimes offer analysis when it’s clearly labeled as such, and to stop there. There aren’t many times when people can be “tricked” into talking if they absolutely don’t want to.
