Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard discusses his plans to help city school students.

This week on Need to Know, as the debate over who should be in charge of city schools continues, Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard is plowing ahead with his strategic plan to help students do better.  He'll join us to talk about big changes in the classroom. 

Also, we continue our occasional series on public health issues that affect the schools. This time we focus on childhood obesity with Rachel Pickering of the Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency and a pair of reports from producers Carlet Cleare and Rachel Ward.
