"CBS This Morning" co-host Tony Dokoupil talks with New York Times education reporter Dana Goldstein, and with Oklahoma teachers who have struggled with low pay – including one, Carri Hicks, who turned her frustration into a run for public office.

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, ambitious, and full of attitude.

"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.
