Editor's note: “The Teaser” is a preview of the guests we have lined up for the next day – so you know when to tune in (and when to set your alarm!). Guests and times are always subject to change.

Here’s a lineup for tomorrow:

6:30AM:  The 4-day school week: It might be a dream for some students, but it has many parents and educators worried. Randi Weingarten from the American Federation of Teachers will talk to us about why she’s against the short school-week, while Lynette Pantello, Board of Education President for a district in Pueblo, Colorado will explain how a shorter week could rescue their budget and save jobs.

7:30AM:  CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen will be chatting with John about this map – discussing how the fight in Afghanistan has spilled over to Pakistan.

8:30AM:  Could an online game change the world? Jane McGonigal, the Director of Game Research & Development at the Institute for the Future is coming on to chat about a new online game EVOKE, which she says does just that.
