The Republican crusade to destroy public education never stops. Even some Democrats are trying to close public schools. But today at a special time of Noon ET, Ed Schultz fights back with Asean Johnson, the extraordinary 9-year-old who stood up to the Mayor of Chicago over the closure of his school.

Also, the White House delays the mandate requiring employers with more than 50 workers to provide health care benefits, stunning a lot of Democrats in Congress who have been fighting for health care for four years. That's all today on The Ed Show at 12nET (11aCT/10aMT/9aPT), live from the 19th annual Essence Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana, on msnbc!!
