Here are the big stories on the agenda today:
- Hoping for signs of recovery. The new August jobs report will be out this morning. One of the most closely-watched indicators of the economy. Meantime, Vice President Biden is saying the stimulus has been a success beyond expectations. Our Christine Romans is here, taking a look at the hard facts.
- Uproar over the president's back to school speech. Some parents and conservatives are angry over President Obama's plan to talk to students next week, one saying they send their kid to school to be educated, not indoctrinated. Why some are so angry. And where they're planning to boycott.
- And shocking new information on the sex offender charged with abducting little Jaycee Dugard and keeping her captive in his backyard prison for 18 years. Police now say a second woman has come forward saying Philip Garrido raped her, too. This woman says she was only fourteen at the time. A former FBI agent will be with us to explain how a man with a sexually violent past can fall through the cracks so easily.
- There's copying your homework from the kid next to you, or trying to grab answers from your text-book during a pop-quiz. And then came the internet. And students learned fast that with the web and a bit of cash. They could take cheating to a whole new level. Our Carol Costello’s has the latest in our special "Educating America" series.
- From high school football star to hero, and not for anything he did on the field. After a fourteen year old girl pulled a gun out on the bus ride to school, 6-foot-4, 255-pound Kaleb Eulls tackled the armed girl and got the gun. There were 22 other children on there including Kaleb's four sisters and two cousins. Police say there's no telling how many lives he saved. And the hero will join us live.
