"You can follow on Twitter at man Hayworth. Dr Hayworth on the subject of whether or not student should Show up to campus for instruction in the fall. We know the teachers unions don't want that because they say it will put their members at risk of contracting Covad, 19. The New York Times is now reporting. That teacher's unions also don't want much. Construction going on from home. One of the reasons that they gave for that is that teachers are getting anxiety about their personal appearance and the appearance of their homes on camera. As soon as you mentioned the New York Times piece, you know soon as you mentioned this topic, John, I knew you were gonna talk about the Fact that the teachers unions are Not even in a subtle way are doing everything they can to back America. Our families are students there holding those hostage are taxpayers into a corner. They think that by the way, you know they're also threatening so called safety strikes. They think the American Federation teachers now Authorized its member out organizations to pursue so called safety strikes. This is all designed to, um, Hee. It looks. You know, The best interpretation is that these folks really are so incredibly fearful about everything. That they and then there are people like that. You know that They're just unwilling to go anywhere. Do anything there? Do they want to shut down completely. That certainly doesn't comport with appearance issues. Uh, you know, but they're that neurotic. But, you know, we all know that If that's the case, we will be paying a very dear price. For nothing we're getting students are our students are in fact not just for nothing but for our kids to be harmed. The American Academy of Pediatrics has said Children need to be back in school for myriad reasons. Because psychologically they needed they need the socialization. They have education plans that really can't be fully pursued without there being there in person. There are mental health issues that can only be attended to. In that way. They were lying school from you for nutrition. Working families rely on school and there is no medical or epidemiologic reason. That we cannot do this and get the teachers unions persist because they're trying to extort the American public for their own gain and power. And now is the time to defund them and de certify them and say We wish you healthy and safe lives by all means. Isolate yourselves to the maximum, But we will not pay for you to do that. You are done. I would add one more point. We hear constantly teachers or heroes. Teachers are beyond reproach. And look, Many of them are many of them do a fantastic job. Many of them are forced to us. However, I point this fact out. Teachers are one population of people. We aren't allowed to ever say anything bad about and they're doing everything they can right now to not show up to work. Get slurred every single day on every channel on every newspaper in the country, and they're the ones who are showing up to work every day dealing with the mess. Exactly. And John, you're absolutely right. And of course, this is in a sense. This is kind of like the most protracted mass scale game of the dog is eating my homework. Ah, right, you know, just excuse after excuse after excuse as to why they cannot do this, you know, And yet, you know, Pasadena Unified School District declared this week that they're going to offer child care. They're actually going to aggregate Children in rooms. With baby sitters to do online instruction, and they're charging parents for the privilege while they're still faint, paying full truck for their school taxes. You know, Americans have got to realise in the teacher unions owned the Democratic Party. Own it. Oh, Joe Biden. If if if they are allowed to prevail there, there is no end to the parasitic behaviour that they will pursue against Americans, families and taxpayers. They don't want school choice there against Governor Newsome, As you know, has declared that even private schools cannot meet. There are wonderful teachers in this country. I was blessed. They have some of the most marvellous teachers you could ever imagine. In Munster, Indiana public schools on I assure you those teachers would would would be the one saying to their there if they were in a union saying to their fellow union members. I'm sorry. I cannot be part of this. And there were wonderful teachers out there who want to be free of these constraints. Let us press the point. It is time for a Ronald Reagan, uh, air traffic controller moment. Let's go to Marco. Marco, You're on K. ABC. Welcome. Thanks protocol. I'm really concerned that a lot of these masks that we're using are made in China and elsewhere. And what is what are the chances that Children and adults years from now, 20 years from now we'll have lung cancer or some kind of lung disease because of the particles that are going into our lungs. Marco, I want to assure you I'm virtually certain as certain as I can be of anything that that would not occur. Um, thank you. I'm not worried, and I wear Chinese because that's what we can get, and that that's where manufacturing capabilities are President Trump his enormous credit. Marco is working nonstop, Teo bring central manufacturing back to this country and bravo to him. He is. He's a wonderful leader on that. But in the meantime, you know we have an interdependence with China. I'm worried Chinese made mask and I'm not worried about that. I do worry about a lot of things that China does no question about it. But I'm not worried about this. I don't want you to worry, either. You can wear a mask and not worry about that. Now, Dr Hayworth when you do one of your many TV appearances, how much anxiety do you have over the appearance of your house? Well, John, I have one room in my 30 year old house and I kid you not I have one room that is sufficiently tidy that I can actually set up my computer for video appearance..

"Also be a three year process by which class sizes will be reduced by four children and the district will hire one hundred fifty full nurses, forty one fulltime librarians and seventeen additional fulltime counselors this strike follows a number of other job actions by teachers last year in West Virginia. Oklahoma, Arizona and other states here to talk about this trend is Dr Robert Shand and assistant professor in the school of education at American University in Washington DC, I asked Dr Shand about his interest in the teachers labor movement. I was a teacher. I wasn't member of the United federation of teachers in near city. So I do have something of a personal invested interest. But also, an education policy scholar focuses on teachers as a as a subject of academic increa-, but really thinking about that in real terms and in terms of an interest in what's happening in our schools, and what's the effect on on students and making sure that we're able to attract? And recruit and retain the best quality teachers possible. And I think part of that is some of the things that teachers are demanding in the strikes in terms of fair pay and working conditions. So I guess as a former teacher as a researcher as as a citizen, and as someone who is concerned about our our schools in our students and the future of our country. So I would say I have a multifaceted. Well already this year. There was one major labor action the one in Los Angeles was that different than your average teacher's strike. I mean, it was it was different in in a couple of ways, I wouldn't say it's dramatically different. I mean, I think that there's a growing national movement. There are two major national teacher unions, the American federation teachers and the national Education Association, and then I think certainly with the internet and the rise of social media just as with almost any other political or policy issue. The debate has largely become nationalized. I think the L A strikes were a little bit different in a few respects. Partly just in terms of magnitude, the Los Angeles unified schools are the second largest school district in the country. You know, obviously LA is a is a major city a major media center. So that draws a lot of attention. I think a strike of that magnitude requires a certain amount of organization, and I think more so than than any others. I think the LA strikes brought to the forefront that the teachers weren't just advocating for themselves and for their own pay. And. Benefits. But also for what they see as in the interest of the schools in the students. So teacher unions are a little bit different broadly than some other labor unions because as a professional union on a matter of very clear public interest. I guess this might be similar, for instance, police unions, they not just star sort of self advocating, but they are expressing positions on public policy matters. And kind of advocating for policies that affect their sector for policies that affect the schools in the students, and I would say for better or worse. There's some research that suggests that teachers are very effective advocates and bring in more resources to schools, and they are very concerned about raising the prominence of public education in our investment in public education. There's some research by Caroline hawks. Be at Stanford, for instance, that also finds though that they divert resources not just to what's best for the students. But also, in some cases, what's best for the teachers. I think very often that goes hand in hand, but that certainly can come into conflict time. What I noticed from media coverage of the strike was it seemed to be I mean granted there were disagreements, but it seems to be almost civil. They no one was screaming at each other. It was it seemed like a civil conversation between the sides at least in the media. Yeah. I I think that's right. And I think we see now the major strikes last year in West Virginia, and Oklahoma and other places where maybe the other side of the bargaining table. There's more right leaning politically those strikes were arguably more contentious. And now, there's also just recently there's been some talk of some potential backlash. There's legislation to some extent. There are some some legislators and who knows where it will go. And and I would guess a lot of this is sort of symbolic posturing on the part of legislators, none of this is really gonna turn into much. But there's some concern that there's some backlash against teachers in West Virginia in particular that may be seen as almost third of an attempt by the legislature to punish them for striking. And I don't think we see that as much in Los Angeles. I would tend to agree that it seems like the. District genuinely wanted to do whatever they could to meet the Union's demands and was being sincere as they could and saying that they simply couldn't afford to and that both sides really, I think ultimately what they want is for the state of California to be riding more funding for the district. Will you mentioned the the West Virginia strike, and that's something? I wanted to get to those strikes last year starting with West Virginia. And then going into other states, the wildcat kind of strikes those were much less organized and did see much more contentious. Yeah, I think so I mean there there's certainly still was a level of organization. I mean that there was the wildcat component where the West Virginia teachers continued striking even after the union leadership that felt they had reached a deal with the state leaders, partly it's inherently less organized simply because Los Angeles is a single district, whereas west Virginia's an entire state and most teachers unions are organized where the basic bargaining unit is at the level of a of a local school district or account. Anti requiring coordination across an entire state. And then West Virginia itself is predominantly rural and mountainous state. I think to some extent it's going to be inherently less organized. And it's pretty remarkable. Actually, I think the extent to which teachers self organized, and I think social media and online played a major role in that as well. Looking ahead. Our teachers becoming more emboldened or mobilized will we see more of these strikes either organized or disorganized. I think so I mean, I think they've met with some success. I don't think teachers necessarily want to strike. I mean, I think they want to go to work and do the job that they're paid to do and they're well aware of the disruptive effects that the strikes can have on students on schooling, the structure costly to the district to the students enter them. So I don't know that when necessary we see a ton more strikes. I think maybe what we'll see is other more aggressive actions. More threats of strikes with the hope that the threat doesn't need to be followed through, but that education leaders administrators those who are on the other side of the negotiating table will see that these threats are credible that teachers have successfully struck and received increases in pay and benefits and in funding to education in return. So I think some of the successes that we've seen in the teacher labor movement in. The past year will embolden them. I think some of this is also a reaction to a number of changes in light of we're still feeling some of the lingering effects of the great recession, and that education funding levels adjusted for inflation has in most places not even return to the levels. They were at pre recession. I think there was a lot of wrong headed policies at the federal state and local levels the sense of well, we need to share the pain, and if other people are unemployed and things like that we need to be kind of cutting the government services as well to sort of signal that were being fear, and we're sharing the pain. Which is I think from an economic perspective the exact opposite of what we need to be doing in terms of stimulating the economy, but I think all of these effects still linger. And so, you know, I think it's not just the successes that we see in West Virginia in Los Angeles and other places that the movement has had, but I think it's a reaction to a number of factors, including perhaps some some over-stepping by education reformers, and there's some pendulum swinging in the opposite direction. Continued underfunding or or funding that is beneath pre recession levels at the state and local level in many many places and then rising healthcare and pension costs which continue to crowd out money for teachers salaries for smaller classes and for other investments. And so I think also you might see more of a push for health care reform and concerns on both sides of the table. The rising cost of healthcare. I will say you can find no more different places in the world in Los Angeles. And West Virginia were there common. Threads in the demands for these in these movements. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, I think there's the obvious ones. Everyone would advocate for more pay. I think that despite the tremendous differences. I think the challenges that public education is facing is remarkably similar in places. Teachers certainly get paid a lot more in Los Angeles in in West Virginia that in both places it's below the median wage for other college graduate professions. And so I think the feeling that teachers are sort of underpaid teachers pay and benefits has not kept pace with inflation. They're asked to contribute more and more to their healthcare, large classes, the idea that teachers are not just advocating for their own pay and benefits and working conditions advocating for the education system in general. And that's a big feature we've seen in the red for Ed movement that has come out of the West Virginia strikes. I think there are these common threads. And also it may be surprising. But West Virginia has among the lowest teacher salaries in the nation that peace is not terribly surprising, given the economy of West Virginia. But. California is despite being a really wealthy state and fairly progressive state is not a leading state in investing in public education since proposition thirteen and the strong historic opposition to taxation in California, the levels of state and local investment in public education are generally below the national average in California. So that might be a somewhat surprising similarity between the two places. Dr Robert Shan is an assistant professor in the school of education at American University..

But also we've got now Gail Collins is asking the question over the New York Times who is the worst cabinet member in the Trump cabinet. And I open the phones to you with an with your opinion on this too. So we got Kirsten Nielsen, right? You know, who lied about the policy of separating children from their from their families. This is Austin Evers of the watchdog group American oversight says Nielsen has enthusiastically generated false evidence to justify the president's xenophobic immigration policies. Zealously executed those policies in ways that are shocked the world and then brazenly lied about both. So she the worst. Or would it be Betsy DeVos who has basically spend time?

One outs. This is a thousand pounds. Plutonium is the most deadly substance known demand it if you get plutonium in your lungs. It always kills you. So is it Rick Perry. Is it Andrew Wheeler the guy who's running the he's a coal industry lobbyist? I mean, he's not gonna go to the Ritz Carlton. He's going to have Sundays employees the Ritz Carlton to get the the toiletries, but you know, like like Pruitt did. But this guy is like turning the country over to the coal industry. Or is it the interior secretary David Bernhardt, he's a former oil industry lobbyist. Or is it Alex czar the guy who's running health and human services, a former drug company lobbyists, or is it Mike Pompeo who's running the State Department. He's calling it. He's the department of swagger. Or is this Steve Mnuchin who apparently in debt to Russian oligarchs and bus cut the sang sanctions to the Mercer. Ben Carson headed the housing secretary. I vote for Kirsten Nielsen. But I think that the guys running EPA.
