7:03 am
charlie d'agata reports where many of the evacuees arrived. >> reporter: stark warning from the u.s. state department, stay away. if you're already there, leave immediately. a quote very, very credible intelligence report that an isis attack is imminent forced america, its allies, even the taliban to order people away from the airport. >> we believe there is a very imminent highly lethal attack possible within kabul and as a consequence, we had to change the travel advice. >> reporter: that travel advice, head to the borders of pakistan, a treacherous, unpredictable journey. isis-k, arrival of rival of the. responsible for some of the worst atrocities the country has seen, a suicide of car bombings,
7:04 am
killing hundreds of civilians. that makes the airport an irresistible target. huge groups of people, americans among them, the presence of u.s. and foreign forces and a chance to expose the taliban's weakness. five days left before u.s. forces pull out for good, the despair of those too terrified to stay is enough to take a life and death risk to get away. the americans should shoot us or let us through, this woman says. those who did get through face an uncertain future. but one that provides more safety and security than the world they're leaving behind. warnings went out earlier today, telling americans and everyone to stay away from the airport. confirmation moments ago, john kirby, confirm an explosion outside kabul airport,
7:05 am
casualties unclear at this time. reports from the airport say there are multiple casualties, there was an explosion followed by small arms fire, taking on taliban members around the gate of the airport. isis in afghanistan have been there for some time, been there for years. they had a tow hold. rivals to the taliban, have enemies everywhere, enemies in the united states. u.s. and foreign forces there, you had taliban. this is an opportunity to expose weakness. and it has done just that. warnings were out there. they knew the attack was coming, yet they were incapable of stopping it. now we have a situation where you've got isis and taliban members trying to fight around the airport while u.s. forces try to get out by august 31st. >> this is what officials were afraid f. this is a breaking news and fluid situation. we'll stay on top of it. thank you very much. bring in ed o'keefe at the white house. good morning to you.
7:06 am
>> reporter: good morning, gayle. picking up where charlie left off, the pentagon confirmed the explosion a few minutes ago. the white house says the president was briefed on the situation. this is exactly what he and other top american officials were warning could happen, saying in a meeting with g7 leaders the other day and in public statements, the longer u.s. troops are at the airport, trying to evacuate, americans and afghans, higher the possibility of threat became. they've singled out isis-k, an affiliate of isis based in afghanistan considered an enemy or rival of the taliban, not in cahoots with the taliban. the u.s. calling them out as likely perpetrator of an attack which now apparently has occurred. don't know more beyond initial reports of casualties outside the airport. this comes as the white house said earlier today that at least 13,400 more people were evacuated from kabul airport in about the last 24 to 30 hours at this point for a total of 95,000
7:07 am
and change in the last 12 days. with evacuations set to end tuesday, the pentagon said you're going to see fewer people evacuated as the military prepares to withdraw its own forces and whatever equipment to take with them. like most people, takes a few days for the united states military to pack up things and get out. pentagon officials making clear if americans show up at the airport eligible to leave, they will be put on a flight, if they get there before august 31st. this news exactly what the biden administration has been warning against, has feared would happen. and as the president described this entire evacuation, hard and messy. this is the latest example of just that. gayle? >> exactly right, ed. we were looking at live pictures from the kabul airport. as you know, this story is very much influx, fluid. we don't know what we're dealing with yet. this is the worst possible news, even though we were warned about it, it is hard to hear.
7:08 am
thank you very much. we're changing topics, moving to the coronavirus. another big story. we have been sharing stories of hot spots in the south. communities in other parts of the country, including the pacific northwest are suffering amid a surge. hospitalizations in oregon hit a record high yesterday. icu beds are at 95% capacity. statewide, the governor deployed national guard to more than 20 hospitals, many health systems cancelled elective surgeries. the staff at this regional medical center invited janet shamlian inside to see heartache for staff and families. >> reporter: visitors aren't allowed in the icu, yet 3 of 15 rooms have family members in them. they're not here for a visit, they're here for a last visit to say good-bye. there's constant turnover in the intensive care unit, not because patients are getting better. >> how bad is it now? >> every day we see just body
7:09 am
boxes roll out. one after the another. and then as soon as we clean the room we get somebody back in there. it's -- it's the worst we've ever seen. >> reporter: icu nurse clarissa carson says relatives used to be able to stay in these rooms to grieve after a loved one's passed as long as they want to. now they have to be out in less than an hour so another covid patient waiting down the hall can get in. there's only one icu bed available in the entire region. >> we have patients waiting to get on to life support. >> reporter: there's no escaping the anguish. as we were listening to icu doctors -- >> the turnaround is so rapid, it's -- it's pretty sad. >> reporter: as i'm talking to you, doctor, what you can't see is that we can hear family members coming out of a room, and they are crying because why? >> because we withdrew life support, and chances are they just passed. these patients are on such tremendous levels of life support.
7:10 am
once we stop that, they last less than a few minutes. >> reporter: suffering and sorrow are now part of every day. >> i've never seen so much death in my career. we're surrounded by it. >> reporter: the icu manager kelsea robinson is frustrated by vaccine hesitancy. [ honking ] >> reporter: last night hundreds protested vaccines outside the hospital. many who said they were hospital staffers. >> our community is getting ripped apart by the people who don't believe in the vaccine, the people who do. >> reporter: most in this intensive care are unvaccinated. every patient except one is on a ventilator. they are so sick, nurse carson says the odds are against survival. >> the grief is tremendous. we are used to winning. us icu nurses, we're used to winning, and we're not winning. we're losing. >> reporter: and there will be more loss. what some are calling collateral
7:11 am
deaths. the doctor tells me they have put off more than 100 heart surgeries over the past two months because there is simply no room for those patients here, no resources. some of those patients, he says, wll likely die. anthony? >> just a devastating story. thank you very much. newly released body camera footage shows a brutal encounter between louisiana police and a black driver. the video of the incident first obtained by the "associated press" shows former state trooper jacob brown striking 46-year-old aaron bowman more than a dozen times. the footage was kept hidden from public view for more than two years. bowman has now filed a civil lawsuit, and federal prosecutors are investigating whether there's a pattern of police cover-ups in louisiana. mola lenghi has more. >> reporter: within seconds of his arrival on the scene of an arrest in progress, this body camera footage from former louisiana state trooper jacob brown appears to show him immediately strike bowman who's
7:12 am
already on the ground. using his police-issued aluminum flashlight he can be seen hitting bowman 18 times in the head and body in a span of 24 seconds. [ bleep ] >> after they had asked me a few questions, they jumped on me. i -- i thought i was going die. >> reporter: brown hits him in the ribs and pins his head to the ground using the flashlight. >> i'm not fighting -- >> you are. >> you're fighting me. >> reporter: bowman can be heard moaning afterwards in pain. telling officers he's a dialysis patient -- >> i'm on dialysis, man. you're hurting me. >> reporter: the beating left him with a broken jaw, wrist, and three ribs, and a gash to his head requiring six staples to close. the wounds to his arm also affected his dialysis treatment. >> hit me with that flashlight, and they did something to where i couldn't get no treatment for it. >> reporter: brown claims bowman struck an officer and said his
7:13 am
actions were known as pain compliance, to get bowman into handcuffs. he resigned in march. wednesday, the louisiana police department said in part that brown engaged in excessive and unjustifiable actions, and intentionally mislabeled his body camera video. investigators called his failure to report the incident an intentional attempt to hide the video from any administrative review. brown has been charged with second-degree battery and malfeasance. he also faces state charges for violent arrests involving two other black motorists. bowman faces charges, too, including battery of an officer which he denies. his attorneys have brought a civil suit against the department. federal investigators are looking into this incident in connection with allegations that there is a larger pattern of coverups and police brutality in lsp. >> some point we just need action. we need these individuals, these bad actors to be brought to justice. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," mole lenghi, nea leng.
7:14 am
>> cbs news has reached tout jacob brown directly for comment, but we have not yet heard back. >> be curious to see what he has to say, how he could possibly justify what we saw in the video. >> right. painful as that video is to watch, it's very important we're seeing it. >> yeah. he's resigned, and the troopers have censored him, as well, saying he seems to have mislabeled his body camera footage. >> another example of why it's important to have the video. >> indeed. moving on, in just a few hours, republican lawmakers in texas are expected to advance a bill that democrats say would limit people's ability to vote. and that follows months of protests and after state democrats fled texas to block the proposal. republicans used baseless claims of voter fraud to rally support for the bill. mireya villarreal has been following this and joins us from the state capitol now. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, tony. intense is the word that keeps coming to mind as we have been here in austin, texas. right now opponents say the new restrictions would hurt people with disabilities, and people in
7:15 am
black and brown communities that live here in texas. they were voting on drive-through voting and overnight voting. something put in place during the pandemic and predominantly used by voters of color. democrats are still hopeful that they will be able to attach amendments to the bill before it passes here at the capitol. ♪ the fight over voting rights in texas has been one of the most contentious in the country. more than 50 democratic lawmakers fled the state last month, breaking quorum to block gop-backed bills they deem voter suppression. does it feel like then anything was accomplished by breaking quorum? >> yeah, something was accomplished because it raised the awareness. >> reporter: representative garnet coleman's district includes a portion of houston. why was it important for you to come back last week? >> i don't think we were gaining anything by being away. at some point we have to fight
7:16 am
on the floor and actually represent our constituents in that way. >> reporter: the bill bans drive-through and 24-hour voting, increases i.d. requirements for mail-in ballot, gives more powers to partisan poll watchers, and limits voter assistance. >> i expect a vigorous debate. >> reporter: house republican james white sponsored the bill. is this voter suppression? are we still talking about that? >> some people call it election integrity, some call it suppression. i've worked with them to get desirable -- undesirable things out of the bill so it can pass. >> reporter: coleman believes this fight stretches beyond the state line. >> the voting rights act applies to different places around the country. and the only way to have that is for the u.s. house and the u.s. senate to pass the legislation. >> reporter: a lot of people feel the same way that coleman does, that the federal john lewis voting rights act would be
7:17 am
a way to keep states from passing these voter suppression laws like what's happening here in texas right now. the u.s. house of representatives have passed legislation, but it's expected to face an uphill battle in the senate. right now we know a lot of lawsuits have been filed against voting rights bills around the country, similar to texas, and the lawsuits are expected to be filed here in texas when and if this bill passes. gayle? >> all right. thank you very much. ahead, surprising testimony in the federal trial of r. kelly. why a former girlfriend who defended the r&b star when we talked to her in 2019 said he did abuse and brainwash her. first, 7:17. a scam that st

welcome back to "cbs this morning." today the federal trial of r. kelly in new york enters its seventh day. the r&b star faces racketeering and other charges related to alleged illegal sexual activity with women and underage teenagers. now this week a former girlfriend told the court that kelly brainwashed her and others. we spoke to her back in 2019. and at the time, she did not consider herself a victim, and she defended r. kelly. now she says their relationship was abusive and is testifying anonymously as jane. jericka duncan has been following the trial. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. not surprising to hear, right, that she changed her story because we heard that from the first witness, as well. but in court, jane described
7:31 am
kelly as controlling, saying he restricted her tv viewing and punished her if she acted outside of his rules. because she is testifying anonymously as a victim, we have decided not to air the video of the interview she did with us for "cbs this morning." >> you guys don't know the truth. you guys believe [ bleep ] that our parents are saying. this is all [ bleep ] lies for many. >> reporter: that is audio from the 2019 interview with cbs news. >> are you happy? >> reporter: jane now says she was not telling the truth. kelly was at the interview but off camera. jane told jurors the disgraced singer would cough to let her know he was in the room. at the time of the interview, jane described a healthy relationship with kelly whose first name is robert. she also did not consider herself a victim. >> i'm happy doing what i'm doing. i haven't figured out what i want to do with my life, but i know when the time comes, we know rob is going to support us
7:32 am
regardless. >> right. >> reporter: now she says their relationship was abusive. she told the court she met and began having sex with him when she was in high school, and she testified that she was beaten during her five-year relationship with kelly. similar allegations against the now-54-year-old go back many years but gained worldwide attention after the 2019 documentary series "surviving r. kelly." >> either you're not getting food or you took a beating. >> reporter: jane says kelly told her the series was filled with lies, and he didn't allow her to watch it. federal prosecutors claim the r&b singer ran a criminal enterprise involving the sex trafficking of women and underage girls. kelly has pleaded not guilty to all charges. >> have you ever had sex with anyone under the age of 17? >> no. no. >> reporter: never? >> no. >> reporter: kelly maintains he did nothing wrong. he told gayle king that in 2019. and he's obviously staying with
7:33 am
that through his defense. >> he absolutely has to. he's looking at mandatory minimum sentences that are huge amounts of time. >> reporter: priya sopori is an attorney with several years of experience in crimes against children. >> you've heard from jane, for example, establishing that, yes, they traveled across state lines, yes, they were coerced and unable to leave. yes, they were in fear of their lives. that is a tough place for defense counsel and for a defendant to be. >> reporter: kelly faces ten years to life in prison if convicted on all counts in this case. he also has criminal cases pending in illinois and minnesota. again, he denies all allegations. and someone that people have been wondering if we're going to hear from is the other woman that you interviewed, joycelyn savage. her parents have been in the courtroom. but it's unclear about where she is and where she stands. >> it's interesting to hear what
7:34 am
jane is now saying because after that interview, her parents reached out and said that's not the daughter they raised. they said, too, at that time she was abused and was brainwashed. they said that back at the time that their daughter was not telling the truth to me at the time. it is interesting to hear her reverse her story. i'm not so surprised. and also about the coughing -- there was very loud coughing in the room. but i didn't know r. kelly was in the room. i was told he had left, so he was around a corner. >> he was there the whole time. >> yeah. i don't know what he sounds like when he coughs, but there was loud coughing. to be honest i thought it was a crew person -- why are they doing that? it was around the corner. i did not know that was him. clearly they would know what that sounded like, but i did not know he was in the room when we were talking to the young women. >> thank you. >> interesting. up next, vlad's got some of the stories you'll be talking about. you can always get the news by subscribing to the "cbs this morning" podcast. hear today's top stories in less than 20 minutes. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪

[ everyone agreeing ] "60 minutes plus" is looking at the continuing fallout from a dark period in our history. for decades it was legal to send someone to prison in the state of louisiana even if the jury was not unanimous. the jim crow injuries were created after the emancipation of slaves to make it easier to imprison people of color. louisiana voters overturned the law three years ago, but many people incarcerated under those juries are still fighting for a
7:48 am
retrial. "60 minutes plus" correspondent wesley lowery spoke with 52-year-old anthony boult who's been in prison for decades. >> 1,600 men and women still incarcerated. some of us are serving life stepses without probation, parole, or suspension of sentence. predicated on a law that was devised to reinstitute slavery in the state of louisiana. >> reporter: in 1994, boult was charged with second-degree murder and second-degree attempted murder after a shooting at a house party left one man dead and both boult and another man wounded. he insists he was not the shooter, but acknowledges he had a physical altercation with the victim that night. the following year, boult was convicted. >> do you remember the day that the verdict came in? >> oh, yes, like yesterday. >> reporter: what was that day like for you? >> it wasn't shocking that i was convicted. it was kind of like a numbness. and when i discovered that i was
7:49 am
convicted by a unanimous jury it went to shock really. >> reporter: the jurors had been split with ten voting to convict and two voting to acquit. at nearly every other state that tally would have result friday a hung jury and mistrial. instead, boult was sentenced to life in prison. so two of the jurors voted to acquit. >> yes. >> reporter: what did you make of that, the idea that two jurors said this guy's not guilty? >> well, at the time, to be honest, i was under the impression that you had to be convicted by a unanimous juries. >> reporter: you didn't realize this could happen. >> no. not at the time. i was young. i had never been to trial. >> reporter: and how did you feel when you realized that? >> i couldn't believe that i was going to be sentenced to spend the rest of my life in prison where two jurors found me not guilty. >> reporter: do you consider that an injustice? >> of course it is. of course it's an injustice. >> and wesley lowery joins us now. doesn't feel right, and voters in louisiana actually decided it
7:50 am
is not right. they overturned this law three years ago. what happened? >> so it's a little bit complicated. as you guys noted, these laws were put in place following emancipation because louisiana wanted to take steps, they said this explicitly in the state legislature, to remain a system of white supremacy, keep it easier to keep locking up black men and black women. the law stayed on the bookser f for -- books for a century. you could be convicted with nine or ten votes for conviction. so you could have two or three jurors who said this person's not guilty. voters in louisiana overturned the law. but what that did was it meant that people couldn't be convicted on split injuries moving forward. it didn't do very much for someone like anthony boult who had been convicted by a split jury. the supreme court would like come in and kind of uphold what the louisiana voters said. they said, look, it's clearly unconstitutional, this can't work this way. but even the supreme court did not apply that ruling retroactively. so again, meaning people who had
7:51 am
already been convicted by a split jury remained in prison. what we're seeing now is a campaign led by formerly incarcerated people, local activists, public defenders, who are fighting to try to figure out some level of recourse for the 1,600 or so people who are currently in prison in louisiana having been convicted by a divided jury. and so in some cases, district attorneys are reviewing their own cases and their jurisdictions, as the case in new orleans. there's discussion in the state legislature about passing a new law that maybe would grant automatic retrials to people or have the governor's office renew it. but again, in meantime, we've got 1,600 people who were convicted in a way that the u.s. supreme court in a pretty scathing opinion led by conservative justices like neil gorsuch, that have said, look, this is clearly racist, clearly unconstitutional, and yet today as we're chatting, anthony boult is still in angola. >> one person would be too many. 1,600 is a travesty.

8:03 am
immediately. immediately was the word they used. charlie dagett is monitoring the newest developments. he's in qatar. i know this is a fluid situation. s it very much in flux. what are you hearing? >> reporter: eye witnesses described a suicide bomber and walked into the middle of the packed crowd and blew himself up. a taliban sporks person is quoted by saying 13 people are does. as is always the case, the numbers flux wait. we've seen some grim pictures reportedly from the scene that suggested those numbers will go up. the taliban is saying children in taliban guards are among them. and just to paint that picture, you've seen thousands of people packed outside that airport despite these warnings. i mean, the state department said as clear as could be today to americans and everyone else, for that matter, to get away from the airport. if you're coming, stay away. if you're there, get out.
8:04 am
that went for everybody. clearly that didn't heed the warning. the intelligence was solid on this. it came from the united kingdom and australia. the uk minister said this event is going to happen within a matter of hours. they can see this coming, which is why that blanket warning went out. there are people that didn't get that message or chose to ignore it who are trying to take that chance to be one of those last flights out before u.s. forces pull out on august 31st. >> you're right, charlie. the intelligence was solid. that's why officials were frantic to get the word out. thank you very much. now let's go to the white house with ed o'keefe is standing by. what is the white house saying about the attack. i realize it's early in the stages now. the secretaries of defense and state antony blinken are here at the white house for those ongoing briefings. they're also here in part because the israeli prime minister is set to visit and in a previously scheduled visit to
8:05 am
see the president, but the briefing is continued. we should point out that the president, in every public statement he's made since at least sunday regarding the situation has warned specifically that something like this could happen. national securitied a i have or so jake sullivan, secretary blinken and others have done the same. saying the longer u.s. troops continue to conduct this evacuation from kabul, the higher the threat of a terrorist attack would become. so in essence it's not surprising to this white house and to the biden administration because they've been warning publicly for days it could happen. regardless, a nightmare snow owe is something they've been sensitive to the possibility of and it is now happened. again, we're expected to see. we're scheduled to see the president later today when he meets with the israeli prm and we'll see whether that changes and whether the white house will say anything more publicly. as the situation in kabul unfolds and the likelihood of a higher death count continues, it's likely this is not going to be completely dom nafting the day at the white house.

today in our "school matters" series, we are answering questions from parents as kids head back to school. we'll go over everything from mask wearing to helping students
8:16 am
manage stress. right now, covid cases are surging among children. more than 180,000 new cases were reported last week alone. and that is a fourfold increase from just a month ago. our senior medical correspondent, dr. tara narula, and psychologist and cbs news contributor lisa damour, join us for more. tara, let's begin with you. we've got a viewer question from rita marie who would like to know what is the best mask for children to wear, and what is your advice for choosing a mask in general for students. >> well, let's just start off by being clear that both the cdc and the american academy of pediatrics are recommending universe masking in schools. yes, on shopping lists for supplies are masks. the best mask, most expert will say, is the one that your child will wear. one that fits them well. getting them involved in that choice, picking out the colors and styles they like, letting them decorate it, is always a good thing. when you're picking out the type, pick one that has multiple layers of material, in particular at least two layers. you can hold it up to the sun
8:17 am
and make sure you can't see light through it. a surgical mask is a good option. some parents may feel more comfortable with the kids' sided 95s, although for the child that may be uncomfortable and probably not necessary. when you're looking for what else to choose, choose one with a nose wire. that fits nicely around their face and the ear loops so you can adjust it so it fits snuggly. you want to wash it frequently if it's not disposable, and definitely pack more than one. >> yes. >> my children, i know, have lost theirs or dropped on the floor. so -- >> no bandanas. >> no. not a good -- >> some parents have put -- almost like a -- an elastic around the back to keep it on the kid's neck. >> like glasses. kids have been great about wearing masks, i got to be honest. better than many adults. >> we're all adjusting to it. if a child is feeling nervous, what should parents do to make them feel better? >> always it is the case that kids take their cues from us about what they should be nervous about and how nervous they should be. so if they're nervous about
8:18 am
wearing a mask, we want to be matter of fact about it and say you know you're going wear a mask so that you feel safe at school, and when you feel safe you can focus on your learning and focus on enjoying your friends. and if they're nervous about going back to school, what we can remember is that kids are always tense during back-to-school time. there is always a lot of change. change brings about stress. they've got new teachers, they've got me to classmates, new routines. and so the best twhooihing to d help them express worries and reassure them. say as soon as you get into the swing of things, this will all make sense, your questions will be answered, and you will feel better. >> lisa, i have one followup. kids pick up on disagreements among adults. and so they know that there is a certain percentage of adults who are saying don't wear a mask and they don't want their kids to get vaccinated, they don't want their kids to follow the guidelines. what do you say to kids who are picking up on that and wondering what's going on here? >> i think we can say a couple of things. one is that we can say this is what we are learning from
8:19 am
physicians about how best to keep you safe, and we're going to follow that guidance. the other thing i think we should do is to prepare kids who go to schools where masks are optional to prepare them for the possibility that other kids may ask questions. and here we can give them a few options to use depending on the situation. they might say "i just feel more comfortable wearing a mask," or bear in mind, it's a lot to ask a kid to wear a mask all day and defend that choice. and so we can tell them just kind of cut them a break. we can say to them, "feel free to tell your friends, yeah, it's a drag. something my parents are making me do. ". >> this is sadly not the first year of sending kids to school in a pandemic. what have doctors learned? >> we've learned so much from march of 2020 when this started. one big thing is schools are not the primary drivers of outbreaks. schools are more the barometer of what's going on in the community in terms of transmission. the second big lesson is layering. layering preventive measures works, it's effective.
8:20 am
by that i mean vaccinating kids who are eligible, and all the adults around the kids -- teachers, staff, parents. masking, as we've talked about. physical distance, so three feet or more. proper ventilation or good ventilation in schools is key. and then we talked about this last week, but rapid, frequent testing, both of kids who have symptoms, but also asymptomatic, particularly if there's high levels of transmission. you want to be testing likee a week i schools. we've seen this work in universities in the past year. and then finally keeping kids home when they're sick, and schools really need to be flexible with their policies. looking at what's happening in community, what the soirngciencs and adapting policies accordingly. >> now that cases with kids are going up -- when this started you didn't have to worry so much about the kids, now you do. what concerns you most about that? why is that happening? >> absolutely. we're at this inflection point where kids are going back to school, we have delta which is so much more contagious. and really we have so many kids who still remain unvaccinated. so it's not surprising that we're going to see this increase in hospitalizations.
8:21 am
but what's concerning is that this rise in infections means that we have kids who are now at risk potentially for missed c, kids who may develop long covid -- >> what is miss c? >> the multisystem inflammatory system that we've seen in about 4,000 kids in this country develop. we also have concern for the fact that more variants can develop as the virus mutates because it's spreading. kids can transmit to others. lastly, we are overwhelming or have the potential to overwhelm our hospital system. there have been so many reports we've talked about of pediatric icus in this country being filled up. how did we get to this point? there was an article i read last night by two pediatricians who said, listen, our kids have sacrificed so much for us. we need to step up as the adults and prioritize their health and do the right thing. >> yeah. lisa and teara, you great vi individually, treerrific togeth. ahead a look at the heated
8:22 am
argument over when schools should have kids mask up. >> you the school board have decided kids should have to wear husband else -- muzzles like rabid dogs. you should be embarrassed and ashamed of the agenda that all of you are letting happen in this town. >> we saw parents and school leaders go head to head at this school board meeting in new jersey. and it's the same fiery debate we are seeing all over the country. we'll be right back.
