PTA Welcomes First Male President

The Parent-Teacher Association, better known as the PTA, has been around for 113 years. But on Sunday, for the first time, a man became president of the organization. His name is Chuck Saylors, and he's got a message: Today, when most families have two working parents, dads need to be just as involved in their kids' schools as moms. Saylors talks to host Guy Raz about being a "first."
