Raising the Bar

Boston Calling
We hear what an American doctor learned when he visited a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan, and what a baker from Boston saw when she volunteered at a refugee transit camp in Macedonia. Then, we find out how a school in San Diego is using hands-on and high-energy learning to help its low income students succeed. We step inside the fine Persian rug shop in LA that’s ready to profit from better Iran-US relations. And we learn how Cuba finally won control over the trademark, 'Havana Club' rum. Plus: a look at Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons' new show exploring Cuba's sugar trade and her own exile.
