When President Obama leaves office in January, there will be no shortage of big-name corporations and Ivy League universities clamoring for his skills. But in a recent essay for The New Yorker Magazine, contributor Cinque Henderson -- a former writer for Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" -- suggests President Obama consider teaching at a historically black college or university (HBCU), community college, or even an urban high school.

Henderson talks about the response to his piece with EWA public editor Emily Richmond, and why he believes public school teachers are overdue for the kind of morale booster he's proposing.
