7:10 am
affected by the attack are sharing their opinions. don, good morning to you. >> reporter: yeah, good morning. the guilt phase was pretty much a foregone conclusion with the fact that the defense team told the jurors that their client took part in the bombings but the results of this next phase are much less clear. boston is a city divided when it comes to the question of whether this 21-year-old man should be put to death. in their fight to save dzhokhar tsarnaev's life, the defense is expected to paint him as a troubled teenager under the influence of his radicalized older brother tamerlan. the team will likely put tsarnaev's family members and friends on the stand. but prosecutors are expected to remind the court of the brutality the now-21-year-old helped mastermind two years ago leading to the deaths of four people including 8-year-old martin richard. tsarnaev can be seen in surveillance setting his bomb down just feet away from the children. >> a very powerful explosion. >> reporter: ed davis was
7:11 am
boston's police commissioner at the time. this is massachusetts. do you think there's a jury in this state that will be able to hand down the death penalty? >> i think there is. i'm not a big advocate of the death penalty. i've never been extremely supportive of it. i think it has its place and i think this is a place. >> reporter: still a recent poll show a majority of bostonians are against tsarnaev paying with his life. martin richard's family asked them to take the death penalty off the table. and two who lost their limbs in attack joined the richards' plea saying we must overcome the impulse for vengeance. >> there are times when we feel angry or we have frustration and we have vengeance on our mind but i don't feel like that's a great use of our energy. >> reporter: the jury's decision must be unanimous. if there's one holdout, then dzhokhar tsarnaev spends the rest of his life in prison.
7:12 am
the process could take up to four weeks. gayle? >> thank you don. today's proceedings come one day after boston showed its strength once again with its second marathon since the bombing. 80-year-old bill effrig returned to run the race since the attack. he was 20 feet from the finish line in 2013 when the blast knocked him to the ground. and rebecca gregory ran the final three miles with her new prosthetic limb. she had her leg amputated while getting injured while watching the marathon two years ago. she said it was a journey she never thought she would finish. that was one of the most touching scenes at the finish line yesterday. didn't you think? when she said i took my life back. >> especially when she fell on to the ground at the finish line. >> so glad for her. >> so happy for her. very heroic with her new leg. we have new information this morning about six men in minnesota accused of trying to join isis. one of the suspects allegedly tried to board a flight to turkey heading for syria. prosecutors say he applied for a
7:13 am
passport while under fbi surveillance. all six suspects face another court date later this week. they are described as friends in their late teens and early 20s. officials say they were recruited by another friend who joined isis last year. this morning an american aircraft carrier is heading towards yemen, a country rocked by conflict. "the uss theodore roosevelt" is prepared to intercept any ships carrying weapons to rebel forces. with the story behind the mission, david, good morning. >> reporter: the carrier "roosevelt" had been operating in the persian gulf flying air strikes against isis. taking it out of the persian gulf and sending it around to the gulf of aden sends a message that the u.s. considers the civil war in yemen as important as the war against isis and there are really two audiences for that message. one is iran which has been supporting the rebels who have
7:14 am
chased the legitimate government out of yemen, and the arab countries, most notably saudi arabia, which are conducting an air campaign against the rebels. now, at the same time a convoy of about eight iranian ships is also making its way toward the gulf of aden. some of those ships are believed to be carrying weapons for the rebels. the u.n. security council has passed a resolution forbidding the supply of weapons to the rebels. and pentagon officials say if any of those ships try to enter yemeni territorial waters they will be boarded and searched. so that of course sets up a potential confrontation between the u.s. and iran. norah? >> we'll be watching very closely, david, thank you. two accused smugglers are under arrest this morning after what may be europe's worst migrant sea disaster. 800 people are feared drowned in the mediterranean. more than 1500 may have died so far just this year. holly williams is tracking
7:15 am
developments from catania, italy. >> reporter: good morning, the survivors of that disaster were brought ashore to this dock last night. human smugglers had promised to get them to europe but only 28 people made it to safety after their boat sank 70 miles off the coast of libya. many of the survivors came from africa hoping for a better life in europe. instead, they narrowly escaped death. they were met in catania by italian officials and protesters. they're demanding that europe open its doors to more refugees so that desperate people don't place their lives in the hands of smugglers. two men accused of being the boat's crew members were arrested by italian police. with more than 800 people feared drowned including up to 300 women and children this disaster has forced europe to confront the deadly business of
7:16 am
human smuggling. this man told us he made the crossing from libya a week ago on a 15-foot boat and is now sleeping on the street in italy. 18 people died of asphyxiation in the boat's hulls, he said. i was praying to god to save us. he told us he fled soemal ya after islamic militants killed several of his family members. the people arriving on the boats are troubled people from troubled places, he said. they should be allowed to come here. the italian coast guard rescued more than 600 people yesterday from six different vessels. and today there's an ongoing rescue operation. 700 migrants crammed on to a fishing boat. charlie? >> wow. holly williams in italy, thanks. presidential candidate hillary clinton wraps up a two-day campaign swing in new hampshire today.

she spent part of her first day rejecting criticism from republican rivals and the author of a new book. nancy cordes is in concord where clinton meeting this morning with community college students. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. clinton is expected to meet with students and educators here in just a few minutes. she did take a couple of questions from the press yesterday. that's when she brought up the ams from her gop rival, but she was less interested in addressing their latest allegations. clinton deflected questions monday about a new book called "clinton cash" that examines foreign donations to the clinton foundation when she was secretary of state. >> well we're back into the political season. and therefore, we will be subjected to all kinds of distractions. >> it's kind of par for the course in politics these days. >> reporter: in an interview last night on "the charlie rose show," the chairman of her presidential campaign john podesta, called the book inaccurate. >> he's cherrypicked information

7:19 am
way. >> reporter: it's no fun to be a target, of course but sabato says there's one potential up side for clinton and that is that all the attacks from different directions could help unify democrats around her even democrats who might have been hoping that someone else like massachusetts senator elizabeth warren would get into the race. >> nancy, thanks. a guilty plea threatens the lineup of one of the biggest bands in rock 'n' roll history. ahead, what

♪ i have a great story. a little girl who is in a drawing when she was 6. the teacher said this little girl never paid attention. the teacher went over to her and she said what are you drawing?
8:44 am
and the girl said i'm drawing a picture of god. and the teacher said but nobody knows what god looks like. and the girl said they will in a minute. [ laughter ] >> that is so great. >> that is from the 2006 from ken robinson. creativity, it is ted's most watched presentation with more than 32 million views. robinson began meeting with governments and school systems to discuss reform decades ago. his new book is called "creative schools: the grassroots revolutions that transforming education." everybody wanted reform but they want it better. you say culturization will not get you there. >> it is. the reason is anybody watching this whose got children know that. people with two children or not,
8:45 am
they're completely different. we've got two children they're completely different. i'm one of seven is we're all different. and now it's all about s.t.e.m. >> clearly you struck a nerve here just the fact that that ted talk has been watched 32 million times. over 300 million people have seen. in the book you point out miley cyrus videos are seen more because you don't twerk. >> i don't twerk. >> we could like to see that sir ken. what is the message that you want people to know. you said that schools are killing creativity. they don't mean to but you say that's what they're doing. >> i've never blamed teachers or schools. i've worked with teachers my whole life. there is this deadly culture that's being pushed on them politically. and the message is you have to personalize the situation not
8:46 am
standardize it. but they have to find that talent and cultivate it. >> i think there's a problem with your microphone. we're going to fix that. >> let me ask you this what sounds good, a teacher will say, i have 30 students i can barely get them to be quiet. how can i personalize a classroom for 30 different children? >> well, it's one of the reasons i wanted to write this book. the book is full of examples of people people ask me what my theory is. i say it's not a theory. it is what works. if you think of people sitting all the time and talk to them it's very hard to control them on that basis. if you engage them about imagination, philosophy teams, it's a very different part of school. my wife used to in liverpool, she taught 40 children in the
8:47 am
same classroom and the pace was bustling because they were working collaboratively. much of that is about the art of teaching. the problem with the standard is that it seems that teaching is part of that. teachers have got to engage and motivate and inspire people. and great teachers do that. >> where does this philosophy standardsization come from? >> well i think it's partly that governments quite likely see the importance of strategic education. years ago, the government took no interest. now they're looking at education as defense strategies. it's a strategic influence. i should say i live here. i've got to make this clear that i just didn't pop over to make this. we live here. and the thing is most governments are in control mode. they think the answer it's

mostly a position that's led to a huge industry. as i say in the book testing industry in this country is bigger than hollywood. it's bigger than the nfl. it's massive. >> one of the bright spots you talk about boston academy. it's an inner city school who focus, and engages students with arts. 90% of their students end up going to college. i mean incredible rate. what are at the doing right there that could be replicated? >> well, a lot of the schools in the book follow the same principles. children have varying talents it's important that they should math and science and so on. but music and theater and dance are just as important for talent to engage kids. and an approach to science. it's a broad curriculum and they have flexibility in the way they teach individuals. >> one last word what's the responsibility about the parents? >> a whole chanter in the book
8:49 am
about parents. parents should be partners with schools. parents know their children than anybody else. >> you got your daughter and son here, i asked them what they learned from you about education. your daughter said you taught them that kids can be more in control of their education than they know. >> let's try that in school. yes, teacher, i want to be in control of my education. >> thank you ken robinson. and crave schools goes unfailed today. you're watching "cbs this morning." ♪
