Ruby Vasquez, Austin Butin, San Pedro Street Elementary discussed on Press Play with Madeleine Brand

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

People are assigned to the school for all the children in a supervisory role. They're not teaching them anything. Ultimately. I mean, that's that's a school of you know, by last count about seven hundred. So you know this. This woman said that she will still maybe take her kid to school and see how it works out that first day of the strike if a strike is to occur, but then kind of gauge from there, but yeah. Three people for an entire campus. What are the kids going to be doing? I mean, if we look back on previous strikes, the one in eighty nine, you know, you've got hundreds of kids that are kind of shuffled into a gym or an auditorium. And I'm not sure they watching movies. You know, I did talk to superintendent Austin Butin her yesterday. And he said there are ways to educate kids that don't rely on a physical body that you know, maybe they can use computers or ipads, or use technology is what he said. But I think you can kind of gauge the reality of what an educational experience might look like if there's a handful of staffers there for hundreds of. Kids bright high schools, you're talking about kids cutting class. Come on down. Come on. All right. So the teachers are all going to be walking the picket lines. But there will be some staffers who will have to go to schools, right, right? If you're a non UT LA number or someone who's paid hourly and are protected by the unions, like a woman, I spoke to this morning ruby Vasquez. She is paid hourly she is a special education aid in the classroom. And so by contract, she says she has to be there. But she also has two kids that attend San Pedro street elementary. So she's an interesting situation. Our contract says.
