The twentieth hour of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the year 1999 and on violence in schools. Mr. Weaver talked about school shootings in the late 1990s and the federal responses to school violence, as well as the state of schools and education in the U.S. He also responded to questions and comments from viewers. 

An interview with 25th anniversary essay contest finalist Andrew Ohmer of Indianapolis, Ind., as well as clips from prior programming were aired. 

The program was a part of a 25-hour call-in marathon commemorating 25 years of viewer calls that began with television’s first-ever, regularly scheduled, national viewer call-in program on October 7, 1980, when the 19-month-old network televised a live viewer call-in program from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. close
