Tonight, can education be run like a business?  PBS’s series “School Inc.” makes the case, but not everyone thinks it makes the grade.  Education historian Diane Ravitch tells us why. Then, for the First Family of New York City, the issue of mental health is a deeply personal one.  Tonight, First Lady Chirlane McCray tells us why she believes her Thrive NYC is tackling an unspoken crisis. Finally, PBS’s digital series “First Person” is back with all-new stories of struggle and hope within the LGBTQ community.
