scheme, nancy cordes looks at the new charges dogging the nominee. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. pthis report is creating new perception problems for the clinton campaign and the state department, which has been arguing for days that foundation donors got no special treatment by secretary clinton. clinton herself hasn't weighed in on the controversy, because she spent most of the past three days out of the public eye. courting campaign donors in hillary clinton is totally unfit to hold public office. >> in austin, trump accused the clintons of running a criminal enterprise. >> it is impossible to figure out where the clinton foundation ends and the state department begins. >> he cited the new analysis by

7:11 am
the law have to leave immediately. upholding the laws is what donald trump will do. the details in how we do that, we'll work that out with congress. >> reporter: during a section of that televised town hall due to air tonight, he signalled to voters around the country are asking him to find a way to work with immigrants who have not broken the law. this of course was the position articulated by many of trump's rivals, and one he scorned. that's why they call it a general election pivot. >> all right, major, thank you so much. >> john heilemann, co-host and executive producer of the circuit, which returns on show time, a division of cbs. john, good morning. >> i'm going to be pivoting all over the place. >> it's glass. let's start with a serious story, which suggests the pay
7:12 am
half of the people hillary clinton met with were also donors to the clinton foundation, now the clinton campaign says it was based on utterly flawed data. what is your take? >> let's be clear. the ap story says the numbers are based on only the calendars that have been released to them so far. the clinton campaign says, oh, there were a lot more meetings they took that the ap didn't know about. it could be a fair dispute, but based on what they've seen, it is a high proportion. it suggestso norah, a pay for play. what does suggest mean, what does play mean. it is clear that access, that people who gave money to the foundation, were able to access secretary clinton. the clinton campaign's response is so what. access means nothing. were any policies changed. that's the line in the sand they want to draw. for some people, who care about good government and our ethics watchdogs, the access being bought is a sin on to itself.
7:13 am
cares. >> we should point out there is no proven quid pro quo here. >> that's the clinton campaign is making, and as of now, today, that's true. >> but the optics are disturbing. >> the notion that people are able to arrange last minute meetings with the secretary of state, a private kind of back channel between foundation staff like doug band, who is the most famous, huma abedin, senior staffer, that's a way where if you need to see secretary clinton, write a cck $1 million, there is a whole other element, which goes to the clinton speech making, right. so if you're on the trump side, you say this isn't just about even buying just access to secretary clinton. there is also a whole other network of financial impropriety where the clinton foundation is taking money in to do good works, which no one disputes. this he do good work, right. but also, bill clinton is getting speech fees, and then access to the secretary.

now, the frequency of the overlap shows the intermingling of access and donations. >> documents do not show that donors got anything beyond access. the clinton campaign says, quote, this story relies on utterly flawed data and omits more than 1,700 meetings she took with world leaders. the statement also said meetings with humanitarians like me linda gates are squarely in the purview of america's top diplomat. >> donald trump says a special prosecutor should investigate foundation. his running mate, mike pence, echoed the call in an interview with major garrett yesterday. pence said clinton's connection to the foundation while she was secretary of state is a conflict of interest. >> given the enormous importance of this election, i believe the american people have a right to know and soon all the facts around the clinton foundation and its relationship to the state department under hillary clinton. >> picking up on the point of

[ laughter ] >> zion also says he hopes to write a letter to the parents for transplantation because, as he puts it, they didn't have to do that. doctors say the decision to do the surgery for zion was made easier in part because he was already on a lifetime regimen of antirejection drugs for his kidney transplant. >> what an incredible spirit this kid has. >> yes, he is. >> just amazing. >> such an inspiration as you said earlier. i mean, to see his energy, the look on his face after going through so much. even as early as 2 years old. >> yeah.

8:35 am
it. you're here to help these kids. younger elementary students don't need pencil and paper work after they leave the classroom. i'm checking for math and reading here and i know what my kids know and what they can do. it wasn't right for them any more. >> psychologist lisa demorris is here and author of "untangled." and she is now a cbs news new contributor, we are happy to say. >> thank you for having me. >> this letter that was shared on facebook 70,000 times. this is striking a chord for a reason, isn't it? >> it is. i think a lot of families feel stressed about homework and especially when it's excessive. you have kids have a long day at school and to come home and feel like they have to tackle a pile of homework and for parents who come home from their long day and then have to lean on a child to get them to tackle a pile of homework, it's not so fun. >> you have research telling us
8:36 am
where does the research stand on the value of homework? >> well, it's interesting. when we -- we have a lot of data over a long period of time. what we see is that up until seventh grade, more homework doesn't mean more achievement. after seventh grade, seventh to 12th, we see that more homework does contribute to more achievement to a point. that you get to diminishing returns. so for middle schoolers, after about 90 minutes a night, the benefit drops off and then for high schoolers, somewhere between an hour and a half to two hours a night, the benefit drops off. >> wow. should students or par back if they feel they are getting too homework? >> if the child can't manage the homework, i think for the younger grades, maybe the parent should reach out to the school. for the older grades, we would like to see the child take that initiative. in my experience, teachers want to help. you know, teachers don't know what goes on in our homes.
8:37 am
well at home, families should reach out to the teacher, all teachers want to find a solution to that. >> a 2015 study showed the homework load for some young elementary students is almost three times what is recommended. so, i mean, you talked about that drop-off effect when you go over the limit. i mean, what is the effect on the kid when you go over the limit? >> well, we like to see about ten minutes per grade. so ten minutes first grade and 20 minutes in second grade and 30 minutes in third grade has part of the excess that we are seeing is that we are in an era of high stakes testing and teachers are under pressure which means students are under pressure but it does stress kids and families. >> one school in massachusetts decided to get rid of all homework. an underperforming school and extended their school day. what do you think of that? >> not a bad idea. i think probably a relief to those families. get it done in school and come
8:38 am
>> this teacher in texas said most homework but let's use that time instead to have dinner together. she didn't say -- >> read to your children! which is critical. >> and those are excellent for child development. we know that. absolutely. >> when do you know your child is stressed and in trouble because of the homework situation? >> i think tears. that is not uncommon in homes. we all have -- i think that, you know, if you and your child every night approach homework is about to unfold, it's time to call the teacher and it's time to ask for help. >> what age then does it become appropriate? i have children who are going in from third grade into fourth grade and they are watching and heard this segment, they said that teacher is really smart! >> sign me up! >> but i find it is important, though, to establish some responsibility. you have homework and i see my kids react to it differently. they say got to get this done, i got to get this done and i find
8:39 am
a deadline and want to meet that deadline and meet that homework project that is done. >> the best argument for the homework in the younger grades is the establishment of routines. that you come home, you sit down, get it done, carry on with your evening. i'll tell you, i get to watch kid go over the course of development and a long trajectory, i will take a child with excellent homework routines over a child with a very strong intellectual endowment any day. when you see success d line, it's the kids with the good habits. >> thank you. james corden is helping a new generation to find a new fan. ahead how stars like the late late show host are lining up to sing animated covers.
