i mean it had to have been 400 kids, and i started to flee in my car and that's when i saw my friend danny. he was lying in the field. he had been shot and he was surrounded by some teachers, and they didn't know what to do, so i put him in my car as fast as i could. >> so you helped bring danny into your car and then to the hospital. >> yeah. one of my teachers and my assistant principal were there and they helped me get him into my car and he was shot in the shoulder and he was scared and he didn't -- no one really knew what to do, so i just put him in my car and drove as fast as i could. >> tristan, you just reacted. that's amazing that you just -- what was going through your head when you were driving there and while all of this was happening? >> terror, fear. i was scared. i mean i didn't know if the shooter was behind us.
i didn't really know what -- where anything was going on. i just saw so many kids running. i saw people running that were shot. danny made it about 50 yards outside the school before he collapsed, and that's when the teachers rushed to him trying to help him and they realized he was shot. i was just scared. there was a lot of fear. >> we understand that, tristan. let me ask you this. nobody ever thinks this could happen to them, certainly not at their school, not at their home. what do you and your friends in the community need most at this time? >> we need each other. there's a lot of people that this affected. i mean everybody in our county is feeling this. i've been called -- i was called probably 30 times before 9:00 that morning checking if i was okay, and that was just close friends and relatives. i mean everybody wants to know what's going on and they just want to be together to kind of help each other through it. >> we can all learn a lot from
your actions. tristan klein, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >> and our hearts, of course, go out to tristan and everybody in that community. the white house believes special counsel robert mueller will interview president trump in the next few weeks. mueller's questioning would focus on possible obstruction of justice in the firing of fbi director james comey. >> the president and other republicans claim there's bias in that investigation and it extends to missing text messages sent by two fbi officials who worked on the russia probe. the president tweeted this last night. where are the 50,000 important text messages? blaming samsung. paula reid is outside of fbi headquarters with this story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. actually 50,000 text messages have been found but the president is correct. they're still missing five montmont

president, the vice president, the president's children maybe and mr. kushner. >> reporter: the campaign to undermine him is also moving full steam ahead. >> what this is all about is further evidence of corruption -- more than bias but corruption at the highest levels of the fbi. >> they're saying that the fbi failed to preserve any text messages during the period of the investigation. >> somebody needs to watch those who watch us. >> reporter: but richard burr tamped down on any conspiracy theories. >> i don't read anything into it. there may be a technical glitch at the bureau. >> reporter: senator schumer said the focus on text messages is an attempt to divert the attention away from the mueller investigation. >> he shouldn't be thwarted in any way, and the diversion that they're trying do both with mueller and with others is not good for the country.
>> reporter: the president's lawyers are currently working with special counsel to decide whether he would be interviewed in person, in writing, or some combination of both. norah? >> paula, thank you so much. the top democrat has changed his mind about paying for a wall along mexico's border. chuck schumer offered to go along with president trump's plan less than a week ago. now schumer said the wall is off the table. the president tweeted if there is no wall, there is no daca. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. so schumer argues that the president scuttled that deal that they were crafting and so he's scuttling his offer. now that the two sides are embarking new negotiations here on capitol hill. but it's also true democratic political considerations have changed. last week they tried to show they were bending
now they are taking a tougher stance to try to pacify a furious liberal base. activists who say democrats caved on government funding for nothing more than a promise from the gop leader to hold a vote on dreamers next month. congressional negotiators now have just 15 days to cut a d.r.e.a.m.er deal, and republicans say schumer's backtrack is going to slow things down. democrats argue, john, that republicans have been slow walking these talks for months. >> thanks, nancy. looks like a solution is a long way off. safe the children's office is this newest target. isis is blamed for a suicide bombing and rampage this morning. at least two people were killed in the attack in the eastern

for a similar attack on the interkeynote anyone tall which left at least 21 dead. more kre lently 41 people were killed last month in the bombing of a cultural center and 150 in a truck bombing last may. after 16 years of war and 2,400 merch combat deaths, the afghan capital is so unsafe, visitors have to take a helicopter from the airport to the embassy and the blast walls keep getting higher and higher. >> it's a country at war and a country that's under attack. >> reporter: he told lara logan of "60 minutes" the new u.s. strategy relies on afghan ground troops to do the fighting backed up by american advisers and air strikes. there are currently about 13,000 u.s. troops in afghan san and nicholson says there are no plans for any major increases. >> this is it, right? there's no more -- this is the endgame. >> yes. this is tend game. this is a policy that can
deliver a win. >> a win means forcing the taliban to force an end to the fighting and nicholson estimates it will take two years for the strategy to produce results. in the meantime kabul will remain a target for high-profile attacks not just by the taliban but any one of the 21 terrorist groups that operate in afghanistan. gayle? >> david, thank you. the ncaa is opening an investigation into how michigan state handled accusations against former olympic doctor larry nassar. he was employed by the university and usa gymnastics when he abused young girls. the ncaa will look at the rules related to the assaults. more than 150 women have given impact statements in court since last week and nassar is to be sentenced later today. dr. jon lapook joins us at the table and is following this

>> i want you to apologize right here. i want to forgive you, but i want you to say you apologize for what you've done. >> reporter: nassar said he's happen. >> reporter: many blamed usa gymnastics. >> the first thing too is to change. they refuse dodd that. >> reporter: in november cbs news sat down with rachel benn hole ander after larry nassar pled guilty to sexually abusing her and six other girls. she's expected to be the last to give an impact statement after being the first victim to publicly reveal her identity. >> i can stop my abuser, but i can't do anything about the person who rises to take his place if the culture isn't changed. >> reporter: with three more left to give an impact statement

today regulators from the food and drug administration will consider a potentially safer alternative to cigarettes. phillip morris international wants the fda to approve a new tobacco device that's called iqos. the company says the pen-like product creates an aerosol that's less toxic and poses less risk of disease. smoking is the leading cause of preventible death in the u.s. tony dokoupil went there to learn about the product and the science behind it. good morning. >> goomorning. out that unlike an easy cigarette, iqos uses
sticks of real tobacco. warming them to below the temperature that produces smoke. that according to phillip morris can save lives. but critics worry that the primary goal is profit as traditional cigarette sales dry up. here we go. on our way to canada. >> reporter: on a hip street in toronto, phillip morris is building what it says is the future of tobacco. this is an iqos boutique, one of many now open in about 30 countries where philip morris promises to quit traal cigarettes and sell iqos instead. they did not accept our request for an interview or a demonstration of iqos.
>>. [ indiscernbling ] >> reporter: we came here to experience the sales process ourselves. over the sounds of the noisy espresso machine, we heard iqos pitched as cleaner than traditional cigarettes. in a statement to "cbs this morning," phillip morris international said our goal is to convert every adult smoker who would otherwise keep smoking to smoke-free products such as iqos. they're also not risk-free. what they do in their application is if smokers converted to iqos -- >> but they would get hooked. >> he worries it might drive people back to cigarettes. >> what concerns me, i think, is this looks like a cigarette and reminds you of a cigarette, and we know if you get reminded of cigarettes and you're trying to quit, it's a high-risk
situation. it makes you want to go back to smoking. >> reporter: leventhal is an expert on smoking and his health. >> i'd better turn this off. i'm worried about my -- >> you're gin winnie worried? >> yeah. >> reporter: the american cancer society cautions most of the research on iqos has been funded by philip morris. an independent study reports that the physical effects on users is not yet known. >> you have air here. over here you have some sort of toxic gas. and then you have cigarettes, then probably somewhere in the middle heat, not burned product, like iqos and dow here electronic cigarettes. >> reporter: phillip morris welcomes independent studies and encourages third parties to conduct their own research. some american smokers like
indiana resident amy lang is not waiting for them to rule on iqos. >> what i knew back in 2013 is cigarettes were going the kill me. >> reporter: she's now a seller of e-cigarettes and a smoke-free advocate who makes special trips to london for purchases of iqos. >> they say, what happens to phillip morris, they've lied in the past. of course, they have. but what happens to my body compared to smoking combustible cigarettes, there's no question that i feel 100% better. >> reporter: the fda's preliminary report found. phillip morris has two separate applications before the fda. today's issue is whether iqos can be marketed as a reduced harm product. wall street expects it to be approved as soon as next month.
>> it's sort of interesting to look at it. it looks so much like a cigarette. my mother died from a heart attack, i believe, from heavy smoking. what can we to do reduce it all together? >> if the claims are accurate, this stands to save millions of lives, but that is an if researchers are looking at. up next, a look at this morning's headlines. and president trump has already made a lasting impact on our nation's court. we'll look at how

good morning, it is wednesday, january 24th, 2018. welcome back to "cbs this morning." ahead, what we're learning about a meeting president trump had with one of his top law enforcement officials. >> plus, the risk of taking some herbal supplements. dr. tara narula will be here to talk about the potentially dangerous interactions. but first here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. another small town in america is mourning the loss of victims and asking why it happened. >> the fbi is trying to figure out why this student walked inside the school and opened fire. >> what was going through your head while all of this was happening?
>> scared. terror. there were people running who were shot. the white house says the president is eager to speak on the investigation. >> schumer argues that the president scuttled that deal that they were crafting, so he's scuttling his offer. >> many victims accuse michigan state university and usa gymnastics of allowing the abuse to last for years. >> the trump administration is five months into a new afghan strategy, but so far it's been unable to stop terrorists from killing americans in kabul. >> meryl streep was nominated for an academy award. then she was nominated for a second academy award for acting surprised for being nominated for the first one. so amazing. i believed it. i believed it. >> i think you hope. but you never know. >> well, she deserved it.
it was terrific. >> you're right. i love all things meryl streep here. i'm gayle king with john dickerson and norah o'donnell. a student walked into a kentucky high school and opened fiefrmt two victims bailey holt and preston cope were killed. earlier we spoke to tristan klein who helped save one of his friends who was wounded. sadly you lost two of your classmates. nobody really knows or is talking about exactly what a possible motive could be. what are you hearing from your friends who were there on the scene? >> yeah. it's not -- a lot of people aren't talking about it. we're trying to stick to the positives, you know, be together and just be there for the people that need us instead of really thinking about the whole shooter situation. we're going to have to end up forgiving him, but --
>> tristan, you said you're going have to end up forgiving the shooter. tell me what you mean. >> well, you know, you've got to -- somehow we're going to have to get over it. god is love and in perfect love there is no fear. we'll get over it eventually. it just takes time. he was a person too. >> amazing. 14 other students were wounded and four more were hurt when they were trampled trying to get away. the suspect arrested at the scene. he's not been identified. a county attorney says the student will be charged with two counts of murder and multiple accounts of attempted murder probably in the next 48 hours. the plan is to try him as an adult. >> i'm always amazed when something this tragic happens and in the beginning people can think about forgiveness this early in the process of their grief. >> grace is an amazing thing. >> it is. it is. the special counsel is close to questioning president trump.
robert mueller spoke with attorney general jeff session, the first known cabinet member to be interviewed. the president says he's not worry about that conversation. cbs news learns that they also interviewed fired fbi director james comey. paula reid, good morning. the fact that special counsel is willing to interview president trump, does that suggest the investigation could be wrapping up? >> that's what the white house would like to have us believe, but the fact is every witness the special counsel talks to, every piece of evidence they receive, it opens up new questions, new lines of inquiries. you never know how long something like this is going go. but even if it does wrap up in the next few months, the fact is the two people we have going to trial, that won't happen until the fall, but the russian investigation will continue to hang over this white house through the rest of the year. >> and this questioninging is about obstruction which is slightly separate from the russia investigation. they say the white house is not
under investigation or they have said that. if he is questioned, does that change whether he's under investigation or is there a distinction there? >> not everyone is questioned by the special counsel is under special investigation. in fact, most of them provide evidence. robert mueller is looking into possible obstruction of justice. they're saying the president is not under investigation. who was he talking to in the oval office? >> it's incredibly significant because the fbi is supposed to be a nonpartisan organization. the special counsel is looking into a possible obstruction of justice in the firing of james comey. this is a loyalty pledge that the president asked for from james comey. if he's asking the number 2, who he voted for, that's going to be of significant interest of robert mueller and he's going to
have to decide is that obstruction of justice or bad manners? >> paula, thank use for tightening that up for us. president trump is making a huge impact on the courts. just one year into his term with help from the republicans in the senate, the president won confirmation from 23 jjs including a supreme court justice, 12 circuit court judges and 10 district court judges. that's one more than president obama appointed during his presidency. jan crawford is outside the supreme court. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. a supreme court nomination, that can be a president's most lasting leg sichlt although president trump has had a contentious relationship at times with the federal judiciary, he's already made a lasting impact. he's put one justice on the supreme court, two dozen on the lower courts and that's just in year one. when president trump nominated judge neil gorsuch to the supreme court, he delivered on a
key campaign promise, to replace the late justice antonin scalia with a solid conservative. >> you've got to go for trump, supreme court justices. >> reporter: in 2016, 56% of republican voters said the supreme court was the most important factor in their support for donald trump. but the white house is also making its mark on the lower courts where the president is looking to fill 145 vacancies nationwide. >> what the president's doing with the courts is truly transformative. >> reporter: he helps lead the conservative federalists society. >> these are people that believe in self-government, that most of the decisions need to be decided by the people. >> have you ever tried a jury trial? >> i have not. >> civil? >> no. >> reporter: two of the president's nominees were forced to withdraw over questions about their qualifications. but on the appeals courts, the new judges are highly credentialed conservative
powerhouses, what you'd expect from a traditional republican president. critics say it's their philosophy that could lead to a rollback of civil rights. >> we receive president trump nominate people far outside of the traditional mainstream. >> the goal is not to get just a few ultra conservative judges on our federal court. it's to capture the entire judicial branch. >> reporter: leo says the judicial battle shows there are consequences. >> the president made it very clear the kind of people he was going to nominate, and that's what he's delivering. >> reporter: with republicans in control and the senate filling those 145 vacancies, clearly it's within reach, but if democrats take back the senate, that could complicate things, especially if another justice retires and the judge is still in office. gayle? >> always interesting. tammy duckworth will be the
fif first u.s. senator to give birth in office. the 49-year-old retired army lieutenant colonel lost both of her legs while serving in iraq. she gave birth to her first child abigail while she was a u.s. representative. duckworth is one of only ten women to give birth in office. she wrote on twitter, i'm hardly alone or unique as a working parent and my daughter abigail has only made me more committed to doing my job and standing up to hard-working families everywhere. her second child is due this spring and word is when the baby's born, tammy duckworth will be 50 years old, which i think is awesome. it never seemed fair to me men can have babies when they're 85 and women can't. not at that women who are 85 would want to be, but to have the option. >> senate baby. that will be something. >> that's the first. >> babies always make news, norah. >> gayle wants me to have a baby. >> yes, i do. but i have no say in the matter.
i have no say. i just lovehe has not weighed i weath whether i should have a baby. >> i'm waiting. i'm still getting to know you. >> i'm 44. hopein i'm saying. >> new research finds herbal supplements can be harmful when combined with prescription drugs. dr. tara narula is in the green room. patients who put themselves in danger. >> my husband probably just fell off the treadmill. >>
a growing number of schools are using dogs to make lessons more agreeable. bianna golodryga met two. >> this is shine and this is brightly. coming up on "cbs this morning," find out how these two rescue dogs have single-handedly changed one new york city school and have redefined what it means to be a teacher's pet. living with parkinson's.f what plots they unfold, but only in my mind. over 50% of people with parkinson's will experience hallucinations or delusions during the course of their disease. if your loved one is experiencing these symptoms,

dangerous interacts between herbal supplements and prescription medications. researchers looked at reports of serious interactions with reports of high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, and depression, and they found herbal supplements may affect the effectiveness or have side effects. >> more than half of americans say they take dietary and herbal supplements. up to one in four adults report taking supplements and prescripon drugs at the same time, and many don't ask their doctor if it's safe. our doctor tara narula is here with why the combination can be risky. good morning. >> good morning, john. >> what is the greatest risk of mixing or not telling your doctor at all? >> for most americans, they're thinking it toews to enhance their health. they're thinking it's natural, it must be safe. the fact of the matter is they're pharmacologically
active. biologically active, so they can do things like change your blood pressure and cholesterol and promote bleeding. the idea that that could interact with medication also exists meaning that if you're trying to treat a condition and now these herbal supplements have their own innate effects, you may be working for or against the kind of condition you're treating, number one. number two, they affect the live and metabolism. they can alter the drug in your system to make the levels higher of the prescription drug you're taking or lower. >> let's get specific. what types of supplements? >> we're talking about things like st. john's worth, cranberry, green tea. there's a whole host of them. for an example if you're a heart attack patient and you take coumadin, that could make the coumadin levels higher or lower which means you might be more likely to bleed or clot. if you're taken a statin, you may be more likely to have
muscle aches or pains. if you're a cancer patient on chemotherapy, it may not be as effective. if you're an anti-depressants, it could make you more depressed. >> i think ginseng is very popular. >> these are things people don't talk about. >> why do you think people don't want to tell their doctors they're on herbal supplements in the first place. >> this is a big thing. 90% of the people i ask they tell me they're taking some fomt of a supplement. it's only when i ask. whether it's because they don't think it's important or they don't want the doctor to tell them don't take that, i'm not sure. but the reality is it's important because you need that open dialogue to discuss the pros an cons. >> are there any proven health benefits? >> we don't have the data or science. in this country, i don't get educated in the medical profession about it. no doubt there are probably some benefits but you have to weigh them with the risks. >> all right.
and talk with your doctor. >> and please talk to your doctor. >> thank you. ahead, a new study on military families and whether obesity is dangered and whether fans with tickets for neil diamond will take the refund or support his disease. you're watching "cbs this morning." we'll be right back. but the living room's pretty blank. we did a lot of research online. we just need to have a designer put it all together. mmm hmm. so, it's really nice when clients come in and have... done some of their own research. what do you think about these chairs and that table? working with a bassett designer was really easy.

welcome back to "cbs this morning." we continue our countdown to music's biggest night on sunday, and all week we're traveling down the road to the grammys. "the late late show's" james corden returns to host the ceremony at new york's madison square garden right here on cbs. corden is known for his multi-talented performances with celebrities and music stars. ♪ ♪ i'm going to live forever ♪ will you remember my name ♪ >> that was corden performing
with hugh jackman. we remember that. in the show's popular sketch, plus the musical. last year james cord den received favorable reviews. he was good. his entrance included the stage, tumbled down the stairs, he showed off his rap skills in the opening monologue. i do think he's part black and he pulled together stars like jennifer lopez, john and others for a carpool karaoke. welcome to the table. last year you said you were so nervous. you knocked it out of the park. this year are you feeling more, i got this, i got this, or do you feel more pressure? >> i certainly don't feel like i've got this about anything facet of my life. mostly, you know, i feel -- look. i'm from a town that none of you have heard of. that's how small it is.
and so to be hosting a show like the grammys is so far beyond anything i ever thought i would ever do with my life. we're going to try and, you know, just not ruin it, really. you're not really in the show very much. >> you're only there for 20 minutes. >> i think it's less than that. we're going to try and, you know, arrive with a little bit of fun because most award shows, let's be honest, are groups of millionaires giving each other statues, and the grammys is different than that because the grammys is all about the performances and the music. so we're just going to try and, you know,er that around. there are some great performances coming up. >> speaking of that, seven-time grammy winner kendric lamar. who are some of the others? >> kendric, i think. i've seen an outline of what it is, and if it is as good as it is in my head, it's going be amazing. it's going to be incredible. lady gaga is morning.
>> kesha. >> yeah. and stan smith. there's some really wonderful moments, i think. >> if you're out there for 20 minutes, what are you doing backstage for the rest of the show? >> i'm worried. last year i found the room next to my dressing room which was almost full of m&ms. and that was the real win for me. i couldn't -- you couldn't get me out of there. and when i say full of m&ms, i'm talking bowls like this which is kind of heaven as far as i'm concerned. if i can find a similar place, you know, with whatever chocolates that are available. >> what i think is so fun about you you're so unpredictable and you clearly like to have fun. that's what i love about watching you. you enjoy what you're doing. we see the clip of you at 15
where you just started out and where you are today, it's still a kick. i get a kick out of watching you do what you do. >> that's all it is, isn't it? you can't do anything other than -- >> did you -- >> look at that. >> grammys' guy. >> yeah. it's all such fun. it's so far beyond anything i ever thought my life would be, just to live in america, me and my wife can't really believe it, you know. >> does that young man ever come into your head when you're on the stage like at the grammys and say -- sort of on your shoulder saying i'm back from high wickham and can you believe you're here. >> i don't feel like i'm much older than him even though i have three children now. i mean look at that guy. >> james. >> you want to see someone who's popular with the ladies. ooh, that guy. that guy.
>> congrats on the new baby girl. you grew up in a family with two kids and now three. i heard you say on colbert the other day -- i said, we've got to get james when he was 15. now when you guys travel you look like you're fleeing from a country there's so much baby stuff. >> it's so ridiculous, the volume of things we've got, bags. just three children, you know, it's like you can't -- you don't have enough arms now to deal with them. but it's -- it's brutal. it's brutal. >> james, are you as excited about the royal wedding as we are? we're all going to cover it. and a friend of mine who's from britain said, you know, the americans make such a bigger deal about it than the britons. do you? >> i don't. i think as british people, we don't get quite as excited about anything as america does, you know.
to our detriment many times in truth. the greatest thing about america and certainly the greatest thing about growing up in britain and looking at america is a boundless optimism and positivity, which certainly in the past 12 months since living here with, you know, various changes in administrations and government, i saw it -- as someone who didn't grow up here, i find myself going you want to shout from the empire state building to say, don't lose that thing, don't lose the very thing that makes genuinely america great. forget america great again. america grit is a boundless joyful enthusiasm that everything is possible. so when someone like prince harry is getting married, we go, oh, great, we should get a tiny flag and america goes -- it's amazing. and i always think that's a much
better way to be because it is amazing. all of it -- i feel bad that i don't have any papers. you've all got these papers. can i have something? let me -- >> you know, james, which gives us boundless joy. >> let me do this. we're back. >> carpool karaoke. every time you have somebody new, we play it on this show. >> it never gets old. >> it never gets old. we kind of recreated one at one point. >> it was before my time. >> when it first started, nobody wanted to do it. who's still on the list that you can't get that you want to get? >> so many people. i mean lots of it comes down to times and people having records and albums and things out. we also -- everyone on our show. we're so proud of it and it means a lot that people still, you know, some 490 shows now and we've done -- i think we've done 35 carpool karaokes. what we don't want to do is get
into a position where we're doing it every week. we always want it to feel like, oh, there's a new one now. in fact, right now as it stands, we don't have anybody booked to do it right now because we always wanted to sit in that rarefied air as being a thing where you go, i've never seen this artist in this situation. but i'm very grateful to everything it's given our show. >> you 'do you now have the opposite challenge, hey, can i do carpool karaoke with you? >> it happens from time to time. >> what's your answer when you're not into it? >> i say where were you three years ago when i asked. no. it's all about timing. in truth, it's all about timing. there's no one that we go, absolutely no. we gnot yet or maybe when your next record is coming. we'd never be so bullish as to
say no to anybody. not on our show. we're literally one cup of tea away from your show beginning. we're one cooking segment from taking your lead-in. that's the truth. that's how late. it's in the middle of the night. >> james corden, if you get to take a plus 2 besides your wife, my name is gayle, g-a-y-l-e. >> i don't know if i'm going. i want to go on the helluva bachelor party. >> lots of bowls of m&ms. >> thank you, james. tomorrow a finlt joint interview ever. we talked with them the other day at their studio. how they are each other's greatest support and the special honor they're receiving from the recording academy. what it means to them.
you can see the recording acade academy's 60th awards here on cbs. hosted by who? >> it might be me. it could be anybody. who knows. >> time will tell. >> we'll find out. some schools are experimenting with dogs in the classroom. >> what? what is happening now? >> where the comfort animals are reducing stress, part of the bounty of america. >> what kind of stress do year-olds
in new york city schools are going to the dogs in the best possible way. comfort dogs teach resiliency as well as social and emotional skills. it was created by north shore animal league. new york city expanded the program to 42 school this year. bianna golodryga went to an elementary school in brooklyn where the teacher's pet might actually sleep in class. good morning. >> he does sleep in class. here's how new york city's comfort dog program works. each school adopts rescue animals that lives with the school administrator. during the day the cuddly pups are embedded in school life.
they do everything from curbing conflict to motivating students to providing comfort and love. >> i pet them, play with them, and bring them on a walk. >> reporter: every morning principal kevin bowles walks brightly from his home to new e brooklyn. brightly is the more rambunctious of the rescue dogs turned comfort canine who have transformed the learning experience for third grader aquila allen. >> do they make you feel better? >> yeah. >> reporter: of these nonhumans, shine is the calmer mellower dog. she greets students in the morn morni morning. attends school assemblies. and serves as a reading buddy.
>> and shine we call the elder statesmen of the two. she'll snuggle up against you on the carpet in the classroom and you could read for hours, so they bring different personalities to the mix. >> reporter: these four-legged friends and others at schools are roaming the school halls. students were angry for no reason and the dogs could help. >> go ahead. lead the way. ncipal bowlesth a way to bolster community at his school. >> were there pushbacks from students or parents or teachers? >> there were some things like nervousness and allergies and some of the kids who were afraid of the dogs have come to love the dogs. >> reporter: this student remembers what class was like without the bushy tailed companions. >> fourth grade were weird because the kids were mean and not following directions.
everybody came to fifth grade and shine and brightly was here. they all acted different and started being happy and being nice to each other. >> do you get to play more with the dogs when you behave? >> mm-hmm. >> we have some really challenging behavior at our school as every school does, and seeing certain students who have individualized behavior plans where if t meet certain school goals they get to come see me and the dogs hat brought specialness to the dogs. they spend the morning spending time with the dog and after spending time with the dog, they're calm and positive the rest of theday. >> it incentivizes them. >> exactly. >> reporter: the dogs teach kids about responsibility, empathy, and making connections. across new york city, 95% of participating educators s the canines have reduced emotional distress among the students.
