Pawan Dhingra, Amherst College After-School Academics in an Era of Remote Learning
"After school education is taking hold during online learning at schools. I'm dr lynn. Pascarella president of the association of american colleges and universities and today on the academic minute ponding gra professor of american studies at amherst. College wondered if it helps or hinders children now. The remote learning has become the norm peres increasingly worried that their children may not be learn as much as they can. This anxiety has fueled an already growing interest in for profit. After school tutoring companies as kumaon math nauseam and others even for children performing well in school visit. Despite many educator says that such learning can limit children that it works as educational inequality what drives parents to invest your time and money after school education. And does it make sense to do so. During my research. I spent time with more than one hundred families who pursue supplemental education for their young children and talk with teachers called emissions officers and others. I found that parents whose children are doing fine in school. Still seek out after school. Academics were to make them competitive often worried about entry to college parents. He neighboring kids in such spaces and so worried that their kids won't be able to keep up. also learned. That tutoring works better under certain conditions and that respect not all companies can provide those conditions. Instructors need to be able to connect the content children's experiences to make the children more interested. For example what's more classes are most effective was smaller tutor student. Ratios parents use outside. Learning centers should ask how those businesses incentivize learning ask for references. If she doesn't prove resistant stop you want to instill lifelong learners. So their interest is essential education landscape is changing and private companies are playing more of a role we to understand their popularity and their effects nor to create the learning environment. We want for all children. That was tallin dhingra of amherst college.
Trump's Pardoning Spree Overlooks Those Most Deserving

What If Trump Refuses to Concede?
"Lawrence Douglas era professor of law at Amherst. College Massachusetts you write for The Guardian and you've published a book called Donald Trump will he go about whether the president would actually step down if he loses. Interestingly. The rhetoric we're hearing now is an knew he was working from the same script in two, thousand and sixty, I can promise and pledge. To all of my voters and supporters. And to all of the people of the United States. Then I will totally accept. The results of this, great and historic. Presidential election. If I win. The remaining. When you started worrying about what you're hearing? will extinct many Americans pretty gobsmacked by the last presidential debate that he conducted with Hillary Clinton. Chris Wallace said, will you accept the results? No matter. What do you make the same until you will absolutely sir that you will. Accept the result of this election and I think trump just kinda refused to admit I will look at it at the I'm not looking at anything now I look at it at the time, and then for swallowed pushed him a little harder in that and trump threatened the tourist the answer I will tell you at the time I'll keep you in suspense. I remember watching that in gang Wow that's an astonishing thing to hear the candidate of a major party say and I have to say at the time I also thought, wow, he's finished. You cannot. You cannot refuse to accept electoral results match just kind of attacking norms of constitutional democracy. So I kind of thought at the time that he was. His own coffin shot. A so much for my prognostications, but even when he won they theme continued from him didn't it guess it did in fact, right after his election I actually started writing as a contributing opinion writer to the garden in the very first piece I wrote was about his claim that he had in fact won the popular vote as well except for the fact that there were these three to five million phantom illegal voters he stated that before I think he stated his concerns of voter fraud and and People voting illegally during the campaign, and he continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have to him. Press Secretary Sean Spicer doubling down on the president's claim, but repeatedly unable to point to evidence that backs up the charge that has been debunked by Republicans and Democrats alike, and in this piece that route from the garden I really tried to ask what are the politics behind it claim like that I mean not only did he threaten dispute the outcome of the election if? He lost his disputing the outcome of an election that he want. But if in four years time, he trotted out a similar type of argument not to for the purposes of challenging his loss in the popular vote. But challenging his lost the Electoral College vote The damage this system should be hard to exaggerate. Okay. Say Things feel quite different this time because in the run up to this election, he basically got asked that same question again didn't he and he responded similarly you commit to making. Sure. That there's a peaceful transfer of power after the election going to have to see what happens. You know that I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are a disaster. We WanNa make sure the election is honest and I'm not sure that it can be i. don't I. Don't know that it can be on top of that. He's a lot to say about the workings of the election itself what is his argument and how much does it change now that he's the incumbent president Well. For one thing, he has spent the last three and a half years telling the American people that our electoral system is unreliable, which again is kind of unprecedented act in American history and what trump has done is he's kind of created this heads I win tails you lose situation in which the only way that the system can demonstrate its legitimacy is if he wins and if he loses well, that's simply becomes proof of what he's been saying all along. We having in yesterday's episode that Donald Trump is really hitting out at the postal system. And in particular state Sir automatically send out mail-in ballots voters. Why politically focusing on this issue There's a particular demographic that we need to pay attention to. These mail in ballots a recent poll indicated I. think that around twenty to twenty, five percent of. Trump's supporters intend to vote by mail in pallets that compares to about fifty five to sixty percent of Biden voters who are going to vote Mallon ballot. So we can see that trump is kinda tactically trying to discredit votes that are gonNA, break against him and very, very unfair to our country. If, they do this, our country will be a laughing stock all over the world because everyone knows it doesn't work how many ballots is sending in California's exit twenty, eight million or some massive number. Other states are sending out millions and millions of ballots I don't WanNa. See a crooked election. This election will be the most rigged election and history

"Instead, I joined the CIA got assigned to the counterterrorism center. Want to Iraq, northern Iraq when it was a particularly spicy area of the country in 2007 went back to central Iraq in 2008 deployed to Afghanistan in 2009. And came home from that work for the NYPD Intelligence division came in right after the fight. Najibullah Zazi attack. And then I was assigned to the NYPD Task force. Working the Faisal Shahzad case. The Times Square bomber, among other Averted attacks that we worked on during my time there. So it obviously changed the course of my life, but I was very lucky. And that I didn't have any family members lost and I know so many of you did. I was very lucky that I wasn't a fireman or a member of the NYPD or a flight attendant on one of those flights or a pilot. Or someone working in the Pentagon that day. What did we learn from 9 11 as a country. One thing is that evil exists and if it can catch you sleeping, it will You have to be ever vigilant because there will be evil forces at work in this world, no matter how powerful wealthy, successful we are as a nation. There will be those ideologies. Those beliefs those impulses. From other human beings to tear us down and destroy us. I know it became something of a laugh line among the liberal left for a while that they hate us for our freedom. But the people that drove planes into those buildings did in fact, hate us for our freedom. And their comrades and colleagues today. Haven't changed their ideological predispositions at all. They're absolutely in agreement with that, that if they could destroy us as a society, they would And then there are those within our own country who you would think Would have rallied to our side, you would think would understand the stakes. And would stop rooting against us because of their own narrow parochial interests or their desire to always be proven right? As domestic radicals who want to see this country brought low and then transformed. They still are very much here is well. One of my strongest memories from 9 11 was the Gathering the only all school gathering that I can remember having when I was at Amherst College, Pretty left wing place in central Massachusetts in the Pioneer Valley. I remember a professor. Standing up before the whole student body and saying, This is what happens when you make people angry. You see? To a certain kind of left wing intellectual to a certain kind of, let's just say it. Radical Democrats. Socialist Marxist. America actually got what it deserved. That day. There were people who were saying that then we remember this. This was a response to our foreign policy. There were academics who said this. There were journalists who believed this. Maybe they waited a while to write such things or say things out loud, but There was that belief there was a flag burning on my campus within Weeks of 9 11 explicitly these were students explicitly going forward to say. That we got what we deserved. So while we can all talk about our unity, and we should, because the vast majority of Americans yes, including our Our fellow Americans who are Democrats. Vast majority recognized what the gravity of the situation was and rallied to our flag and rally to our country, and we should remember that. There was an element within our own borders that saw what happened that sauce attacked in this Particularly dire and vulnerable moment and thought. This is something that we can work with. This will be advantageous for us. You even see some elements of that still today? Don't ever forget their enemies, Foreign and domestic. That's one of the lessons we should take from 9 11. Because neither of them have gone away as much progress as every as we've made it as many sacrifices. As our military law enforcement and first responders have engaged in over the last almost 20 years..

"Jenkins holds degrees from Amherst College Columbia's graduate school of journalism in Princeton where he received a PhD in English after experiencing a very severe health scare on his own he set out to discover the truth about toxic chemicals are alarming levels of exposure and our government's failure to regulate them effectively now he discovered the spent as life marinating and toxic stuff and from his wall to wall carpeting to was dryer sheets to his drinking water here he is on coast to coast his latest work is called food fight okay I remember food fights in school but not like this no no this is this is a food better very large scale it's funny that you you mentioned the book about the toxic chemicals called contamination which is about the toxic petrochemicals to get into all our consumer products from our drinking water bottles to our cause medics to everything that we use to clean our bodies and our hair and our children and everything else there are alarming levels of chemicals and all those but that book really didn't address food and so I set out to really look into our industrial food system to see what kinds of things were eating how we got to where we are and came up with some fairly troubling evidence about things not just about the chemicals like the pesticides and herbicides we get but also genetically modified food which is really what the book is about we have a champion campaigns to try to stop GMOs try to at least get the foods labeled and we have the back to people who are pushing those campaigns on this program a cake with some success in some cases but not enough is being done well you know I I've been listening to your the the segments you've done so far and I I see I see a common thread here when you're talking about fake news and and help people have this really deep distrust of all kinds of things give deep distrust of the press they have deep distrust of the president depending which side you're on there's really this feeling that nobody knows who to trust anymore and I think this labeling question really speaks to the people that comes to what they eat which is one of the most intimate things you'll do every day people don't know what's in their food they don't know who to ask for real advice about what's in their food the whole process of eating it's become a really mysterious thing to people and this is really what this book is about is trying to lay out exactly how the system that feeds assault has been built and how it all functions and labeling is a big part of that for sure has this system been bought off to the point where they don't want to take care of us were defend us well I think the question is who is they suit they're there to to large groups the people get most frustrated at one is government which they think is not protecting them and I think that's a legitimate gripe the second is the industry which is providing the food that is trying to avoid being regulated so what you have is giant industrial chemical agricultural companies that control everything that we eat and they're only really about six companies that are in control of a very large percentage of what we're eating every day and they have so much money and so much power that they of course dictate policy in Washington so the policy is not protecting us is being dictated by the company so the companies dictated the regulators don't do their job and we are all left holding the bag so really they're there to groups that are kind of working in collusion and we then don't get the food or the information that we really need the title food fight tell me about that because I think that's sort of what we're talking about tonight well people have very strong of pinions about these things if you ask someone what they think about GMOs they will probably give you a very strong opinion but they may not have depth to their argument that I think they could use so whether you're pro or con this book will really offer you a lot more evidence to support your your thoughts about things because GMOs are now I mean it all it is is really a plant it's a technology for breeding plants that's really all we're talking about it the question is how are those GMOs used in this country they're used largely to grow herbicide resistant and pesticide resistant corn and soybeans to crops that are now spread ons close to a hundred and seventy million acres of American land hundred seventy million acres of land to create two different grains that go into feeding the animals that we eat in fast food restaurants process food empty calories really I mean this this food that they're producing is really not nutritious it's not terribly healthy so regardless of what you think of the technology the food it creates is really not beneficial and that's from a much larger conversation then would you like the technology or not is it also a way to control the seeds so you make a lot of money exclusively without absolutely sure I mean these these companies create the seeds the patent the seeds they control the seeds and then if any farmer happens to have any seeds drift on to their own crops they get they can get hassled by the company they can get some rest bye yes they can get sued in court I mean there's all kinds of that sort of thing that's all to protect them the very large amount of money these companies are putting into growing the seeds but it creates as you as you say many times on the show it really creates this culture of paranoia and suspicion and worry about who's got are the consumers back in right right now it doesn't seem like the companies or the government or terribly interested in providing good nutritious food for people they're interested in creating enormous profits on unhealthy foods in which the what about the dangers and the science behind playing around with mother nature I mean they are literally altering the genetics of these foods from corn to soybeans too you know in just about everything isn't that a danger one day well this is certainly something that a lot of people are worried about I I will tell you what the global scientific community says and then you can accept that or not the global scientific community I mean the the most highly respected scientific organizations in the world not just in the U. S. but in the world they all say the same thing that eating GMOs is no more dangerous to your health than eating regular food that's what they say and then almost unanimity in that many many people don't buy that many I mean just in there at their gut level they say eating something that has been manipulated in a laboratory cannot possibly be the same as something that has involved over me millions of years to grow out in the field now there's that that's really more of a philosophical question in a scientific one I suppose you could say and that's where a lot of scientists get really angry because they see that doesn't make any scientific sense on the other hand you can it's hard to argue with somebody's got when they say you know people been eating or kind of certain kind of way for a very long time and now there's this new thing how do you expect me to trust it I think this gets back to this whole question of who people think they can trust him I'm not sure I would want to eat knowingly some kind of food that has been altered to fight insects or weeds built into the food because what will it do to you once it hits your stomach well I think the so here's what we can start breaking things down to the the the GMO corn that you're talking about has been altered to have a bacterium inside it that will resist being Hey look the corn resist being eaten by caterpillars so you are in essence eating an insecticide the argument is that that insecticide is a naturally occurring bacterium that has been introduced into the corn plant on the other hand there that's the G. the herbicide resistant GMOs are being designed so that when you spray them with chemicals they will not wither and die it'll kill everything else but it won't kill that planet so therefore you are by definition going to be absorbing a lot of Petro chemical herbicides of that's the major thing here that we're talking about if you have not you know a hundred million acres of soybeans that are being sprayed with herbicides now you're getting the herbicide in the soybean just no getting around that now you may not care about that but that's pretty much a given with the way these things are grown in where we stand right now with the science in terms of what they're going to do with the future I mean how many more th foods will they alter well you just saw about two weeks ago I mean he's so they've just back up so everybody around the world it is more worried about this and Americans are a part of it is because we're drinking the Kool aid of these companies this being told that there's no problem there's no problem and one of the world's way more suspicious than we are so you take that as a given now the companies are desperately trying to find a product that will make Americans feel better about GMOs in about two weeks ago they introduced something known as the arctic apple which the GMO apple the only thing it does that when you cut it open it doesn't turn brown right away and I don't know about you but that that just does not seem to be all that sexy to me what I think is going on at the company's want something that'll turn Americans around and make them happy about GMOs so then they can start introducing all kinds of other things in the future is going to be dizzying because you're gonna certainly not just have GMO plants but now you have this technology called CRISPR which is gonna allow scientists to alter the genetics of animals so you can start to see everything from pigs to chickens though tickets to cattle that are gonna have their genetics altered you've got a GMO salmon you know you're you're certainly gonna have waived the larger and more visible animal products out there on the market and that's going to be a real game changer I think two remarkable what's happening and it's happening worldwide right well if you buy what is happening what's really happening is this these inventions are happening here and then they're being spread around the world it's not like there are farmers in Africa genetically altering plan right here this trying to figure out how to grow food in a world that is getting warmer and drier and.

"No, one can wrap it up like you. I love it. And and also tune in because you're always just right there to just nail that latest issue. Like right now this just happened on. There was an executive order signed to protect free speech on campus. And what they're gonna do. I Trump is is promising to say we're going to give you federal funding research dollars. If you don't protect us, and we were just talking on the break, those research funds should not be there. Anyway, I should not even be a string. But he's taking a stab at making. Ensure that that that kids have say the kids are. Yeah. And I think for Donald Trump on this again, I think they're going to be just Wales of indignation from the academic community. Actually gonna argue watch that a executive order like this that seeks to guarantee freedom of speech, not just for students. Many professors have come under the gun from their universities for not saying politically, correct thing. I'm one of them for for that matter. But what are you saying is that you know, everybody has a right to speak freely. And this is really a threat to the comfort people. We just talked about in the previous segment your needs to be comforted. Does not Trump my need to tell to tell the truth to be able to say what I think even if it may I tell my kids guys every semester. I tell them that you are going to be exposed to uncomfortable ideas. Here you're going to be exposed to things that challenge what you believe. Because if you are not exposed to those things, you get an education, everything is just the echo chamber, right? If your comfort level, and meaning what you think, you know, what you think you believe can't be challenged or even at some point ritual necessary. Then we don't have real freedom. Now getting the feeling from the academic who's going to be big with? I guarantee the academic community is going to say we are endangering people's lives by allowing people to speak. Freely. We are going to cause waves of of snowflake college kids to commit suicide because of the hurt feelings that's gonna come now. But it needed to be done. I'm glad it's done. And then again as somebody who has first hand suffered from this idea that speech that makes people in comfort is dangerous. I think it's absolutely necessary. I think I think it came just in time, but the people at Amherst. Well, I chance. Gotta look over that article. What what they're doing at Amherst college in Massachusetts released a new what they call the common language document for its students that lays out definitions about everything from capitalism to drag queens. Actually now is redefining words. So that they mean what the progressives want them to me not what they mean. Title. This is common language guide. In other words, whatever capitalism or transvestites or home of homosexuality, or any of these things, huge document big document. Whenever these words you discussed on campus. These are the ways we must discuss them. So in other words, you are only allowed to speak of capitalism. Critically the definition of capitalism in this guide. This common language guide. Asserts that capitalism is destructive eight is environmentally unfriendly it threatens minority communities. So again, if you're an economics professor talking about capitalism, every time you talk about capitalism you have to include. It's degradate the degradation. You can't talk about it solely as an economic movement or solely system that America practices, and you certainly can no longer simply extol the virtues of. Capitalism for increasing wealth, you have to follow the definition of capitalism through the social progressive lens. Now, again, my say when this was sent to a bunch of faculty and students and immediately the college Republicans young college Republicans protested among other things that this is an unfair deputy of capitalism. Some administrators some bureaucrat immediately came out and said, oh, well, this is just a draft. We made a mistake in circulating, right? Which means that they got caught they didn't expect people to get angry that fast. Oh, man. We'll everything they do in this like legal and illegal they deem it as the that. It means a highly is term to describe a certain persons presence in a nation without government issued immigration status. They don't bring crime and all about immigration. Well, yeah. Just on this on this note since we just visited this with the executive order. His his fighting words were were unique. And I thought they were kind of refreshing. It's nice to hear somebody say this because presidents usually aren't bold enough to say this, but he brought onstage Hayden Williams. And he was a conservative activists who was attacked while working on a recruitment table on campus at the university of California, Berkeley, the video went viral conservative cited it as further evidence of the stifling, which we've all seen and and obviously there's loads of evidence to show that that's true. And they are like you said before it's so eloquently, they are manipulating to basically depri-. Unless you have kids in college, and even still many kinds of you wouldn't even know that from talking to them. I. Where'd you go by now? Do we listen? Darn it. There you go. Ups you back. Vanished on me for. I was saying that I don't think parents know, exactly how willing and able college in the university of our to try to stifle your kids speech. The first amendment is very very much under threat and college campuses. And the argument is basically one about feelings. It doesn't matter. What you say? It doesn't matter. If what you say factual, it doesn't matter if what you say is based on the book your teaching that day, if someone hurt by it, you could get in very big trouble, and that is across mock campuses across this country. And where did we get the idea that free speech zones? On our fantastic way in this country to determine when you get your God, given right? And when you get your God, given right? You know? Great question that I've made this point before on your show publicly that most of the universities in this country are public universities, which means that they serve the public. They are stay in Wisconsin. I'm part of a system the university Wisconsin system that makes us all state employees. The state of Wisconsin does not have the right to circum feed. The the US constitution. These are not privates. Howard's a private college. Harvard wants to try to with your free speech rights. They have much broader latitude than a public university does. And yet here we are at our public universities cracking down on speech because you know, it makes people uncomfortable. Everything makes somebody a comfortable, and why is it that? Our universities are not the slightest bit interested in protecting our conservative and Christian school students from being uncomfortable. Much of what liberals say makes me uncomfortable. Progressive say makes me as a Christian and a conservative uncomfortable. Knowing gives a rat's rip about my discomfort. It's almost as if you know, this this this whole speed censorship is to protect and coddle sensitive liberal kids. And that's it. Yeah. You know, one of the things that this executive order does that that not too many people have talked about is that it orders and orders and directs twelve grant making agencies to use their thority in coordination with the office of management and budget to ensure that institutions that receive researcher education grants, promote free speech and free inquiry promote it it's going to affect the thirty five billion dollars in grants. And I got this from the beginning guys. And you know, this is true. The only thing that universities pay attention to is budgets. So if not only the feds did this more more states did this if more state and every state could do this state legislature passes simple built the free speech Bill, which basically says if you do not actively promote free speech speech, then you don't get your states on either. I mean, nothing will bring the universities to he'll like that. Boy. That's a great statement. You're right. Hit them where it counts in the pocket book. And so this is what Trump said of of this kid that he took on stage with him. He said he took a punch for all of us. And we could never allow that to happen. And here is enclosing with Hayden. Here's the good news. He's going to be a wealthy young,.

"Ngelo who teaches whiteness studies says that those who say that taught to treat everyone the same denying black people. They're reality. Now, you can go. This is garbage that I got no problem with this. You can you could go on the internet and pick up rubbish completely free. You could go to a you. Go to any one of zillion. Why? Websites, and here that if you treat everyone the same your dangerous white person who's denying black people that reality you don't need to go and do six years of whiteness studies at a so called higher education institution and run up a six figure sum by borrowing huge amounts of money at predatory loan shark rates from all these college loan lenders. You don't need to do that. It's just it's the biggest structural defect in America today. It ensures that people finish doing whiteness studies when they're twenty six or twenty seven can't get hired because nobody thinks whiteness studies is anything. No, one cares. Whether you've done aced, whiteness studies, you can ace whiteness studies. And he's still going to be flipping buggers except the machines will be flipping. Doug is now and all you'll have is a six-figure call. At predatory loan rates that and his where we tied back together means you will have later family formation. You will get married later. You will have children later. A you will have fewer children, which is why we have depressed demographic rates. And which is why they say we need to have mass unskilled immigration to do the jobs Americans won't do at some point. I'm so tired so tired of Republicans never actually addressing anything that matters of so called conservatives never addressing anything. That matters. We all we have huge structural defects hair. And the Democrats make all the running on them. The Democrats may goal the there's some stupid story today. Always like the scoop, it's him. It is images this Amherst college, also, Massachusetts oddly enough. In other words, this is the college. The west supposed to institute grade. Thirteen to prepare people for student leaders at Amherst college eager to avoid perpetuating. The harmful stereotype that only women menstruate. I mentioned this a couple of months ago because it happened in British grade schools, the the the government said, you know, you have to teach little children in in middle school that that because of all the transitioning that's going on now because there's no point being a man in today's society because all the transitioning you sometimes have go through transition into boys. And so middle school is have to be told that little Jimmy may be having his time of the month for the next four days. And so you're not to giggle at little Jimmy when he brings in his feminine products because we shouldn't be calling them feminine products for because as student leaders at Amazon college this first sentences student leaders at Amazon college eager to avoid perpetuating. The harmful stereotype that only women menstruate. So instead, they're not going to. Link menstruation to women they gang refer. They're going to divide people into students who menstruate and students who don't menstruate and the students who men's rate can be both men and women and the students who don't menstruate can be both women and men. So so we are supposed to now institute grade thirteen in order to better prepare people for borrowing a six figure sum to spend six years. Undergoing social engineering like this who the hell, do you think votes for Alexandria? Oh, Casio Cortez. We've got two generations of this rubbish.
