hour the gates will open at the smithsonian udvar hazy center for the official welcome of the space shuttle discovery to its permanent and new home. >> two days after that spectacular fly over arrival the public will get a closer look and our own holly morris is live with more on this big day. >> hey, good morning. it is really exciting here, you can sense something exciting is about to happen here. there is the space shuttle enterprise behind me that was the first ever shuttle, it was constructed to do test flights in the atmosphere, of course it was built with no engines or functioning heat shield so it never went into space, there in lie it is difference between enterprise and discovery but they are getting ready they will be moving enterprise out of this hanger, built specifically for the space shuttle to make room for discovery as i said it went
into space more than any other space shuttle it had 39 completed missions served nasa for 27 years it is special to have a monomental object tomming to be a part of the smithsonian collection they are celebrating the goodbye of enterprise which is heading up to new york and the welcoming of discovery in a big way with a lot of fanfare the museum is opening in less than an hour, 8:00 a.m. historical open doesn't cost to come to smithsonian it does cost to park $15 the welcome ceremony is 11:00 a.m. and the museum will have later hours stay open until 6:30 p.m. for more people to come out and see discovery on its first day. they will have 14 of the 31 living commanders that flew on discovery, denise graves will sing the national anthem, john glen will be here, so, it will
be a very special moment, but i think that the picture of the day, that everyone is going to want to get is that they are going to have a nose to nose meeting of the enterprise and discovery so seeing those two space shuttles next to each other will be pretty awe inspiring and they will have a formal document signing that transfers discovery from nasa, to smithsonian officially and then of course it will be put here in this hanger for all to come see it will be quite the day, almost seems like it would be impossible to top tuesday because that was so spectacular seeing discovery fly in and around the nations capital but it will be spectacular here we will be here throughout the morning tony allison back to you. >> holly you make a great point i don't think we have ever seen two space shuttles together at the same time that will be cool. >> it will be really awesome. >> thanks holly. all right coming up, or not coming up we want to talk now

this performance has been seen just back in 1964, and he said really and i said yeah and he immediately called over a production assistant and said change that to hasn't been seen in over 40 years and i was like that is very cool he just went ahead and did that and then turned to me and said something along the lines of we don't want the blow that one or something like that. but very cool, smart business guy and one to have nicest people ever it was a pleasure to work with him just in the little way i did. >> it is possible to be both then a mogul and a good person. >> yes,. >> thank you. >> mm-hmm. >> terrific. >> he was a game show host too. >> game show host. >> creator. >> tvs bloopers and practical jokes and ed mcmahon credits him with introducing him to johnny carson a big deal there. >> there you go. >> $10,000 pyramid. >> yes, then it went up to 25,000 dollars. today it would be a half million dollars. >> i wouldn't do it today. >> right to the forecast i only

up i spoke to v dot on the outer loop of the belt way i have a bus it has been stalled on the ramp to 66 it has been there since quarter after 6 this morning i called v dot what is up with this bus why is it still here they tell me it is full of marines and all of their gear and they called for a back up bus to come northbound i-95, as we have been talking about northbound, i-95, gone but that bus coming from quantico is stuck in that delay, trying to work its way up and help these guys out on the outer loop at 66 so i am offering, allison, because you know i try to help out everybody as much as i can help these marines off the ramp from the outer loop at 66 but none the less that is why it is still there and we are waiting for the other bus to help them out. outer loop of the belt way, leaving new hampshire, towards georgia, 9 miles per hour here big delays on the outer loop, accident activity on that ramp as well that is a check of your
fox on time traffic. well, a big news day for dc schools and a great day they are embarking on an ambitious plan to make major improvements over the next five years the plan is called a capital commitment, joining this morning chancellor of dc public schools with this exciting news it is a big commitment. >> a big commitment allison but that is what our children deserve we believe we have to do right by our children by providing them with a school system, where every single school provides a world class education for all of our students regardless of background, or their circumstance, that prepares them for college, for success for a career for life. >> you are always looking to improve but is there a reason the timing is now? >> yes so we are finishing up a five year, strategic plan we set forth in 2007/2008, when i got to the district under a former chancellor. as we lookout over the next five years, i think we are
proud of what we have been able to accomplish previously, in terms of operations of dc public schools are right and we were able to get started on student achievements but if our children are really going to be successful, and prepared, we have to ramp it up and we have to ramp it up quickly so we set five ambitious goals, to push for in the next five years. >> let's get into it the first one, i am not surprised increasing math and reading because that is what we are always trying to do. increase math and reading pro if i have sen to 70%. >> -- pro phi shown ski to 70%. >> that's right but we recognize at 43% we have a long way to go but ideally we have to mush further. >> -- push further whichever >> doubling the number of students at advanced levels of pro phi shown ski.
>> absolutely i want to lookout at high performers and push them and call lunge them they often get -- challenge them they often get lost. >> our lowest performing schools their average proficiency rates are 23% only 23% of the young people in those buildings can read and do math on grade level which is an abomination. we need to push really hard, to get those 40 lowest performing schools to move 40 points in the next five years we believe we can do it and we believe it requires an intensive focus and some redirection of our resources and attention. >> what happens if that doesn't happen? do these schools risk closing in what happens. >> well, i mean i think the real cost is to us as a community, these are young people who don't have opportunities, if they can't read, and do math at a very basic level when they are coming out of school, literally their life chances are slim so
the real cost, is for me, there is really no option, we have to make this happen and i don't want to sound polly annaish but there are lots of people moving young people into performance we have to be systemic we have examples across our city in traditional public schoolcharter schools, we just need to get it to. >> hoping to increase graduation rates thats a big one. >> yes we just had our graduation rate recalculated and found only 53% of our students who enter 9th grade graduate in four years. that is ridiculous. we believe we can easily get to 75% at least 75%, over the next 5 years, by focussing on middle grade students ensuring when they come into high school, they are prepared and ready, so they can graduate in four
years, we have to completely rethink high school, kids are not motivated to come into a building and sit in the class or go from class to class and have eight different people talk to them for 45 minutes, high school needs to be interactive we need to connect it to work and the world we need to ensure our young people have internship, study abroad opportunities, that they are able to connect what they are doing in the classroom, to life. >> the last two, increase enrolment, we will do that and also i love this one improve student satisfaction if they are not having an experience. a good experience when you walk in the door who wants to be there you want to hear from the students themselves. >> absolutely you and i both have children allison you know that your kids get up every day, and if they don't like going to school, they are not going to -- >> it is a struggle. >> right. >> so i want our schools to be places where our young people feel safe where they feel
engaged and motivated, where they feel happy, where they are connecting with adults and other young people, where they participate in the arts, and music and technology and athletics that our schools are robust places our kids want to go to every day. >> speaking of music in the couple seconds we have left i commented on this child and how happy this student looks and listening to music tell me about this program and where it is. sure this is a classroom at neville thomas elementary school, in ward 7, and in partnership with vh-1 save the music we were able to -- they donated a number of state of the art key boards for a music lab at neville thomas, and you heard me say before, the arts are incredibly important our children's talent is as important as their test scores and so we thought it was really important to show, that in our five year plan, it is not just about test scores it is about
the whole child. >> right i love i. i just wonder where that was when we were in elementary school we didn't have vh-1. good luck with the plan hope you will come back and we will talk about it through the year. >> thanks allison. >> we will be right back i style everyone. my family, my home... my boyfriend. i can't help it. i'm a fashion stylist! at t.j.maxx,

necessarily mainstream. joining us for a look at clark's legacy and influence, chris richards top music critic washington post good to have you here nice to meet you. >> thanks for having me. >> it is a big loss 82 years old we know he had been in declining health but what an extraordinary career, a lot of things we can talk about let's talk about american bandstand first this show, you know it is funny, in -- it is easy to say well, you know as the show -- you know people who came to it in its later years kind of corny but you know when it started it was unique, and special and it really had a big role in the mainstreaming of rock and roll. >> absolutely you are totally right there are three things people came to when they came to bandstand you know you come to it to see the music, hear the music for the first time these are the pop songs of the day, you got to see the artist performing the songs the
television generation seeing these and you got to see how teenagers like you were responding to the music taught you how to dance to it how you should react to it for people who weren't getting concert experiences living say in like rural iowa, american bandstand brought the approximation of a concert experience to your home. >> in the early days you know, people later generations might not be aware, mite forget that rock and roll was quite controversial in the late 50s, and even started to die down a bit the early 60s but dick clark helped make it okay, with parents as well as the kids right. >> he did you mentioned america's oldest teen analler line that follows him throughout his -- teenager line that follows him throughout his life he had a boyish appearance and charm to him and helped introduce what might be seen as cutting edge music to an audience that wasn't used to it and helped him connect to a
younger viewer ship they saw him as a big brother figure, you are right, that kind of clean cut image helped him introduce artists to main stream. >> over the years there have been certain shows artists felt they really had to do to make it big to legitimize them, ed sullivan show, and american bandstand, as late as the beginning of the career for madonna. >> sure when you will be at the list of who played american bandstand, you had everyone, run dmc, patsy cline it run the gamut throughout the decades he did a good job staying current and having a good ear he wasn't discovering artists as getting behind them >> introducing them. >> right. >> he also loaves a formidable legacy when it -- leaves a
formidable legacy when it comes to his business hack men. >> incredibly savvy he went on to do these other shows the game shows, blooper television shows, chain of restaurants as well we think of dick clark right now, from a music perspective i think of him as a person who introduced all this music but he was a talented business man who told rolling stone his career came first and music second. he was upfront about that. >> ryan ryan seacrest the two of them had a relationship almost like dick clark announced ryan this is the next guy and he based his career on the model dick clark established >> ryan seacrest has his radio programs, counts down the top 40 on the radio these days definitely following in the mold and so many people followed in the mold, don cornelius and soul train and that trickled down through mtv i drew up in the 90s there were
dance shows. >> and video soul. >> right. >> so -- >> overall, one of the other things that was interesting i heard dick clark talk about this years ago, the other thing his shows did in the early 60s was promote black artists and a very subtle but important thing, they never made a big deal about it but on that show, there were white kids and black kids dancing, not necessarily with each other but in the same room together, that was back in its day the late 50s early 60s kind of out there a little bit. >> right that is part why he was the person, the comfortable wholesome image they didn't make a big deal out of it you just did it and that made it acceptable. >> very interesting a big loss chris we appreciate you coming in good to read you in washington post good to put a face with the name too. allison over to you.
