This year’s broadcast event highlights how community organizations provide support, advice, and intervention services to at-risk students, families, and schools to promote higher graduation rates. The programming themes are Early Education, Caring Consistent Adults, More and Better Learning, Special Needs Communities, STEAM Programs, Dropout Prevention and Re-Engagement and College and Career Readiness. New features this year include live entertainment and performances, and “Stories of Champions,” a new series of 14 profile pieces featuring American Graduate Champions working in communities across the nation.

In 2011, a group of amateur historians made an incredible archaeological find: the bones of King Richard III, hunchbacked, with an arrow through the spine. Richard is considered the most evil king to have ruled England — and a fearsome warrior as well, despite the extreme curvature of his spine. Now, scientists are testing the bones to find out more about the king and also conducting experiments to determine whether Richard could have fought so ferociously in battle with such a severe deformity.

New York City mayors have a world stage on which to strut and they have made legendary use of it. Yet few have matched the bravado, combativeness and egocentricity that Ed Koch brought to the office during his three terms from 1978 to 1989.

Elected in the 1970s during the city’s fiscal crisis, he was a new Democrat for the dawning Reagan era — fiscally conservative and socially liberal. “Koch” finds the former mayor politically active to the end (he died in 2013) — still winning the affection of many New Yorkers while driving others to distraction.
