UpFront - Pakistan; gun control; and a rebellion against standardized testing

A standoff in Pakistan between the government and tens of thousands of protesters--who got a big boost when the Supreme Court ordered the Prime Minister arrested. We look at who the players are.

Then: would Barack Obama’s gun control proposals actually make a difference? We talk to Larry Cohen of the Prevention Institute about what measures actually reduce violence.

Also: teachers in Seattle have captured national attention--by refusing to administer a standardized test they say has nothing to do with learning. . . is it the beginning of a resistance movement in education?
