"A cz. You know if you've been following the news for the last four months, we had these braying mob's out on the street, creating all sorts of problems. And what it's done is it's gotten companies universities, organizations of all kind to release. Letters of support for the braying mobs. Even though there may be no truth to anything that is in the letter that they release. They do it to keep the braying mob from their front door. They think that as long as we pretend like we support these people, and we absolutely understand their point, and my goodness, I can't imagine why anybody wouldn't be rioting and looting. That's certainly absolutely they're justified to do that. Politicians as well. So we go to the head of Princeton University. Guy's name is Christopher Eyes. Gruber. I guess this guy could be the villain from die hard. What was that guy's name? Hans Gruber was alright Hans Guri essence. Okay. I didn't see that movie in years. President of Princeton University, Christopher Eyes Gruber, Hans, his brother. Issued Omega Coppola and a letter in which he argued that Princeton still events racism, He wrote that racism and the damage it does to people of color. Nevertheless persist at Princeton is in our society. Racist assumptions from the past also remain embedded in the structures of this university. Now. First of all, it's a stupid thing to write, because you're in charge. If there's racism, there it comes and stops at your desk. It's your fault. Why haven't you fixed it? I guess it's just that white privilege that you've been depending on to save you, right. You've seen letters like this from? I don't know how many places things along this line there. They criticize their own organizations where we pick up change. And we flagellating beat our own backs. Raul with all the Oh, we're so sorry about what has shut up all of you. Let me tell you, we're just briefly. The organization you're supporting. Had people outside a hospital where two deputies had been shot and those people were yelling. I hope they die. I don't support that. And yet if I want to watch an MBA game, I have to see that miserable organisation's name printed on the court. Not interested anymore. I don't need the MBA that much. All right. So this guy writes this letter. He's just self flagellating. All this university is just the worst place ever. My God, We're just We're horrible, horrible people. Well. On Wednesday, the Department of Education run by Betsy DeVos fired off a letter to Princeton University, declaring that the university would be investigated now, saying it's concerned that Princeton's nondiscrimination an equal opportunity assurances and its program participation agreements. From 2013 to the president may have been false, in other words, to get the tens of millions of dollars in federal money. The university has to fill out program participation agreements They have to, in essence say that we have fulfilled all requirements of title six of the Civil Rights Act that declares that no person in the United States shall be on the ground of race. Color or national origin be excluded from participation in benign be denied the benefits over subjected to discrimination of any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. I'm Betsy DeVos looked at this letter probably laughed out loud because it's clearly one of these things that Theo guys just trying to keep the mob away from the front door. She said. Oh, okay, So you're saying racism persists? All right. Well, if it's systemic, as you say, then clearly that is on you, and that is on the university. And you're going to probably have to refund the tens of millions of dollars because you lied. On your government applications here. You said there was no racism. You said that you'd met all the requirements. And yet here you're saying something different? I got to be a honest with you. Don't know much about Betsy DeVos. But I said I'd marry that woman right now. I love the fact that they did this. I wish they would start doing this to every organization and send out and investigate them. And if they insist on following the idea that they're systemically racist, take all the money back to the feds. That's billions of dollars we could certainly use in the Treasury right now. I think this is Brilliant, but her parts don't ever let anybody tell you she's not great at her job. All right. So once again, it's just it's I don't believe the guy even believes is. I don't believe these organizations that write these kind of letters or say these kind of thing. I don't believe any of them believe that we're all now living in a pretend world were now pretending we're faking it. We're acting as if but nobody really believes it. And the reason they don't believe that organizations are systemically racist is because the system isn't racist Individuals can act that way. I have no doubt that there are plenty of people who have racist actions that they've taken in their lives. I don't doubt any of that. But systemically sorry, nobody..

"E. S.. Not, just the president trump is making inroads among the small majority of the electorate or you know more voters than Biden. He he is doing well with groups that the Democrats have typically relied on the group's identity groups that Democrats usually take for granted most notably in recent days among gay guys. Yes. That's right the homosexual population of the of the electorate tens to be taken for granted by the Democrats and yet according to polling from a queer dating APP. Right now it looks as though forty five percent of Queer. American men now don't cancel me for saying that that's their word I don't know what word I'm supposed to us. They change the words every day but forty five percent of Queer American men are backing President Donald Trump and this is considered a very queer fact because Democrats always believed that they're supposed to get one hundred percent of the gay guys. The APP is called Hornet and a forty five percent of them are GonNa vote this is a twelve hundred queer. Respondents say they're going to vote for trump How did they get to this ten? Thousand men were surveyed by the APP twelve percent identified as US citizens fifty-one percent. They'd be of those men said, they'd be voting for Biden and forty five percent for trump. So it's very, very close even among gay men, and by the way these are just the game and who are on these APPs. Presumably the more bourgeois stayed you know com- gay men who are not on these APPs presumably they're even more conservative than all that. So why why is it? Why is president trump gaining momentum? He's gaining momentum because Joe Biden is wrong about everything and his views are unpopular. Simple as that, right because he's gotten things wrong with one or two exceptions for fifty years, a huge political career and his views that even if they were at one time popular are no longer popular. One example of this just one simple example but it's a central one right now is China. China has not only destroyed the global economy because of the pandemic that they lied about but China also has helped destroy the American. Economy by stealing jobs and they D- they are you can't even say that they stole the jobs because a lot of American politicians in both parties decided to outsource them. This was considered to be a wonderful thing because GDP tick up a little bit and who cares if whole towns that people are going to die of opioid overdoses and suicides that's not a big deal because at least we can get slightly cheaper consumer goods. The view that was held by the Democratic, party and by I guess what you would call establishment Republicans the total unfettered free trader Republicans was this is a good thing. A rising China is good for everybody. Yeah. They might poison the whole world with a plague shut down the entire economy but you know generally speaking is a good thing and this was the view explicitly held by Joe. Biden Debate here in the United States and quite frankly throughout most of the West. is whether a rising China. was in the interest of the United States in the wider world. As a young member of the Foreign Relations Committee I wrote and I said and I believed in what I believe now that a rising China is a positive positive development. Not only for China but for America and the world writ large unambiguous I know that clip wasn't so long ago but I, know it's a little jarring hear. Joe Biden speak clearly so odd how his childhood stutter that we've heard so much about in this election campaign obviously wasn't there in the clip because even just a few years ago Joe Biden was much more with it than he is today he was with it. He was just wrong about everything notably about China, but we can clearly see what his views were. He's wrong about other very popular issues charter. Schools Charter Schools School Choice Ah give students particularly underprivileged students particularly racial minority students particularly students in the inner cities basically. Charter schools give them their only chance to get a better life to break out of cycles of poverty and misfortune and Joe Biden and the democratic establishment opposes it and the why does Joe Biden oppose school choice? I sat down yesterday with Education Secretary Betsy Devos Senator Cruz vershow verdict we talked a lot about this issue that will be coming out very soon but the long long and short of it is Democrats oppose school choice because they're bought off by the teachers unions and the teachers unions don't want that because it threatens their job even if they're very poor teachers, even the students are failing even if the schools are completely underperforming. Teachers Unions. Don't want to get there. So they've made this unholy alliance with the Democratic Party Joe. Biden puts it in no uncertain terms. He does not want poor kids. He does not want kids in bad school districts to be able to get a good education. I will. Not. Be No federal dollars a month Betsy Devos normal. Maya. Sector case being waker in terms of our attitudes about public schools. No privately funded charter school would receive or private choice will receive a penny federal money not. In any charter school that in fact is worthy of being able to be an education. Would have to be accountable to the same exact school boards. The same exact mechanisms that the public school is accountable to. Across the board, there has to be transparency. A lot of these charter schools are significantly underperforming significantly. I can see where you can have a school, for example, especially school on the on the arts or or music or for. But if you're going to have a charter school, it can't not come at the expense of the public. School. So, everything he's saying is just complete nonsense. It doesn't make it doesn't mean anything. He's saying that the charter schools are under performing. That's simply not true. Just just the example of last year New York City, which is very important place for charter schools. The students in public schools underperformed the students in the charter schools and pretty significantly, and we're talking about public dollars. Private dollar is a lot of these schools were started with private dollars and then you've got programs that can transfer. Some public money they're going to the failing schools and get those students to go to the decent schools in New York. You got tens of thousands of students on that wait list for charter schools y because, of course, everyone wants to get into the good schools and what's the rub here public schools could lose a billion dollars if those students transferred. So a lot of money on the line Joe Biden took that side but across the aisle including groups that Democrats take for for granted. Charter schools very popular. It's even beyond Biden don't forget biden is nobody Biden is an empty suit he blows around in the wind. Now he probably doesn't even know which way the wind is blowing. He is a symbol of the democratic establishment. Yesterday he forgot who was at the top of the ticket he referred to the Harris Biden ticket though com layers were going to be the President Joe. Biden is going to be the vice president. He's just a vessel for for democratic policies how those policies plant very poorly we saw two days ago and historic peace deal in DC I was sitting directly across the street from the White House when I was in the hotel with the Israeli and the Bahraini delegation it was pretty weird man we've been told that Middle East peace is a pipe dream. Now, we're looking at peace deals not just with Israel and Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates but could include as many as nine additional nations including Saudi Arabia, who's the big dog in the region, and why did this happen because Donald Trump bucked the establishment foreign policy trend specifically the democratic foreign policy establishment even though the last Democratic Secretary of State John Kerry told us that kind of a peace deal a peace deal that dealt with the Arab nations before dealing with the so-called a Palestinian state, it's not a state but the Palestinian issue in Israel the John Kerry said that would be absolutely impossible. Until it was possible. There will be no separate peace. Between Israel and the Arab. World I WANNA make that very clear all of you. I've heard several prominent politicians and Israel sometimes saying, well, the Arab world's in a different place. Now, we just have to reach out to them and we can work some things with the Arab world will deal with the Palestinians. No, no, no and no. I can tell you that reaffirmed even in the last week because I've talked to leaders of the Arab community, there will be no advance and separate peace with the Arab world without the Palestinian. Process and Palestinian peace everybody needs to understand that..

Former Republican Governor of Michigan Endorses Biden for President

"Endorsed Joe Biden for president. He said President Donald Trump was not covering in the interest of the entire nation. I was at the nation's Capitol when Trump gave his inaugural address. I had hoped this first speech as president would be a message to unify divided nation. Instead, I heard a speech directed at how It would help the people who supported him. And sadly, that is how President Trump continues to govern. That's what he wrote in the USA today and then the free press governor. Snyder also criticized the president's 2017 tax cut and said Trump's foreign policy had produced some good agreements, but overall, our nation is no longer respected as a leader on world affairs. Jonas is Dick. Hey, Verner, Dick Wei talked a little bit about this yesterday. You weren't terribly surprised by this, But we're gonna have former governor Rick Snyder on in a little bit. And there are a few things I'm curious about. And one of those is and I wanted to get your take on. This is If the Republican governor doesn't like trump, and clearly he doesn't. Why not suggest ah, not endorse anybody? Or maybe endorsed some other great Republican as a write in candidate just to show your displeasure with the president. Why go so far as to Endorse a Democrat to endorse Joe Biden. Is there something about Joe Biden? He likes so much that's going to make him a great president. If he's just making a statement that Donald Trump is not not his guy. Why not endorse whoever his favorite Republican is as a writer? That's good question. That's a very good question. Because the governor Snyder says he is still East still considers himself Are Republicans. So why vote and why come out for a Biden, for example, his good friend John Kasich ran for president. Then he dropped out. Why not write in John Kasich as Hey, has the person he votes for? So that's a good question. Another good question would be what Policies of Trump. Does he support He can't be against everything that Trump has done has got to be something there that he likes because they're both Republicans. And he, after all, is the governor who several years ago. Boosted supported ram through and sign the lot. The right to work law in Michigan, making It's a ah ah, situation where we're workers that Aaron, a union covered by a union contract can drop out of the union and still be covered. By the terms of the contract, something that unions viral it Lee against. He was the right toe work Governor. So that was a very conservative move on his part, something that would be ah. Aligned with what the Trump administration is done on so many issues, So yeah. Ah, you raise a very good point, And I think I think that there's just something much bigger than this. I think I was reading a little bit of cut the Lincoln Project Republicans against Trump, but they are I think they're going to be coming out. Today, with maybe hundreds of businesspeople, politicians, people who say they've been Republicans for a long time coming out and say, both for Joe Biden. And that's just interesting to me. Why they don't voice their displeasure against Donald Trump More than vote for Joe Biden does. If you're a true Republican, wouldn't you think? Four years of of the Democratic president would do more harm than four years of president. Republican president that you just think is a jerk. Basically. Yeah, well, I'm I'm sure that you will have the freedom to ask that question of the governor also if the governor comes out again Against President Trump. And for Biden, one of the high profile members of the Trump administration is Betsy DeVos. Betsy DeVos, who would have been a Big Snyder supporter Back in the day one. Snyder was governor. This would seem to Ah cut off the good relations that he would have with Betsy DeVos, Dick DeVos and the DeVos. Organization and forces in Michigan. What what does he Snyder Ah. Think about that is he Is he through with the divorce is or can he maintain some sort of a friendly relations with them, even though he comes out against Trump If it comes out against Trump, he comes out against Betsy DeVos. Right and I also wonder does does this make Republicans think twice about voting for Donald Trump? Or does this make Republicans think less of Rick Snyder? Well, I'm not the judge of that you had you had posed the question Previously. Does this persuade Republican voters? I'm not sure that people look Any more at the endorsements of anyone. In fact, sometimes I think when we hear about a political figure endorsing somebody else for office It's quite a Ah, it's quite a bodacious action on their part, thinking that they're so important that their endorsement is is needed. Bye bye. The voters that we just have to know who they support or who they don't. I'm not sure that Snyder, even even the endorsement of a governor. Ah, former governor is that important to voters anymore? Republicans or Democrats cave after

"You know for ten years I was a high school teacher high school history teacher, and I look forward to the beginning of school year, every single one of those years and I could not imagine not being able to do my job well.

We add the secretary of Education in the United. States Betsy, Devos and Secretary Devos. Does it appear to you as it appears to me that this thing is political, and that Democrats want to rob our kids of a good education. Well Good Morning James We know that kids need to be in school and that they've lost mumps of learning this spring in all too many cases, and we know that kids can go back to school safely. It can be done safely, and in fact, more and more studies show that kids are actually stoppers of the disease, and they don't get it and transmit it themselves, so we should be in. In. A posture of the default should be getting back to school kids in person in the classroom, and for those who have an underlying condition or some concern that keeps them from that. They still have to be able to learn full-time. We cannot afford to have kids missing and losing more and more months of education. Is there anything that the CDC has identified as a reason not to open these schools up? No none at all. In fact, quite the opposite. All of the medical experts are continuing to say that kids should be back in school. They should be back in their learning environments, and in fact for children's health, it's important for them to be in school for almost all of them to be in a classroom and with peers and with their teachers, and as you know as a former. Former teacher, there's nothing more important than that that were poor that relationship and that and that you know what what results in social emotional growth and development from being in school with peers. This is one of the things I think. A lot of people are very concerned about the impact of that. Not Being School is having on on these kids in the center ring of.

Secretary Betsy Devos who has a reminder, does not have a background in either education or medicine said it's time to go back to school. Kids need to get back to school. They need to get back in the classroom. Families need for kids to get back in the classroom and it can be done safely. I know for a fact that there are many schools that have been working hard to put together their plans for moving ahead, and we want to see every school district every state, doing the same thing to say not why we can't do but what we're going to do, and what we can do were country of action.

Trump pushes for schools to reopen, calls CDC guidelines "impractical"

"The trump administration on Wednesday continued a full court press on reopening schools in the fall. Education Secretary Betsy. Devos told the nation's governors on Wednesday at virtual classes won't cut it. It's clear our nation's schools must fully reopen and fully operate the school year. Anything short of that robs students not to mention tax payers of their futures. Dare and a conference call with governors, the White House insists that students must return to classrooms for the sake of their mental and physical health as well president trump on Wednesday threatened to withhold federal funding. If America's schools don't re-open, Louis did not say what funding he would pull. Some school districts have considered offering a mix of in person and virtual classes in the fall, due to the corona virus and Vice President Mike Pence, said Wednesday that in certain situations that may be acceptable. There may be some states and local communities that that given cases or positivity in that community may adjust to either a certain set of days or certain limitations, and we'll be very respectful of that. Fence also said the CDC is revising its guidelines for schools after President Trump complained that the agencies guidance was too expensive and impractical. According to a report from to national groups of educators, it would cost the average school district about one point eight million dollars per year to outfit buildings for safety during the pandemic.

"What's the level beyond tea party like? What's the next big boss so okay? Idaho's Idaho Freedom Foundation. I'm not sure who really the big bosses. I don't know fits Betsy Devos's family. Yeah they're definitely part of it. Her brother Eric. Prince is the head of Blackwater. Yeah so far right wing conservative family that wants to get public education and who own their own army. Yeah there's shock. Yeah yeah this is a family who wants to privatize everything brave. Because they've already shown how they can privatize and military exactly yeah. I don't know how well known it is but all of those numbers on how many troops are in Iraq. Were all about half with the real numbers were because of Blackwater and quote Mercenary Contractors. No of course mercenaries. Yeah Yeah and so anyway the the Devos and the Prince family are. They're actively involved in all of this funding some of the groups in particular the group that that's behind the Michigan New York Virginia rallies that Donald Trump tweeted about right because he had his own hand. I'm sure in making those I mean. He's actively said that. Oh Yeah He. He's actively saying that. He has all of the power. Not The governor's but the governors have to be doing everything and we should be doing all this sheltering in placing and not shutting out of these businesses but liberate these states because Second Amendment right which is a convoluted convoluted convoluted argument at best. It's not even a convoluted argument. It's it's not even an argument. He's you can't say trump can't say that he has absolute control over this because he doesn't especially when he also follows that with the. I'm completely not responsible for any of this right. He's trying to have his cake and eat it too. Which only works with far right wing groups that are being funded by a family that gets their money from government contracts war profiteering Yup and I mean today. The day of recording. We We had a big protest down the neighborhood. Park Kleiner Park in Meridian. It was a bunch of women in their kids. They're all playing on the playground. Equipment Co. Cram packed in there Because it was public property and they had a right to have access to it It was also funded by Freedom Foundation. And that's that's a logical follow-up to the protests that happened on Saturday on the purchase happened on Saturday with more than a thousand people in attendance at the Idaho State Capitol the Idaho. Freedom Foundation was the main group behind it but there were libertarians. Gun rights groups anti VACs groups all. They're waving their flags. Yeah it was. It was not a pretty scene. There is a lot of hostility. There were people being abused. Beaten I wouldn't say beaten but there is a couple of people who got pushed around and the cops protected the whole time. The people are getting pushed around or the people doing the pushing of the people. Doing the pushing no the people who were there protesting the cops are there to make sure that nobody got really hurt. But that didn't stop these people from hurting people who were protesting their protest. Yeah and a lot of these people were carrying guns. Yeah it was open. Carry season out there. It was which because that's what that's really about. Which if you're having a I know there are people who would argue this. But in my opinion a protest with guns is not a peaceful protest. No because the gun automatically is a sign of intimidation not right. If it's I mean that's how I feel if you have a rally with a bunch of people with guns that scary. Yeah with people with guns. That looks to me. A Lot. Like a military formation a rebel group of militia a peaceful protest in this case they weren't marching basically a peaceful protests. There does the other side feel that they can also protest so do you have equal protests anti protest groups going on in protests. Like this one where there was a lot of open Kerry. There was a lot of angry yelling people. There was no chance for an anti protest to develop because those people would have been in actual danger right and the whole point of this protest was too loudly and very aggressively. Threatened the government. Yeah and got away. Scot-free technically everyone in that protest committed a misdemeanor by being there yet but committee and getting charged with and actually be punished for are very different and also. There's no way that the state of Idaho could arrest more than a thousand people. Oh please tell me that. There's no way to tell if even five percent of them have guns. Yeah Yeah. It's really frustrated. Heather Scott from northern Idaho was of course all behind it. It's just it blows my mind that she's running that nobody's running against her so she's guaranteed in for the next. You know what the. Hell

How to Repair Your Image: An Online Makeover

"When there's news about a person or company good batter ugly? It usually ends up online but new reporting from the Wall Street Journal shows that some of the wealthiest Americans have found a way to scrubbed their images online getting rid of the bad stuff and replacing it with more flattering coverage reporter. Rachel Levy of the Wall Street Journal joins us to explain. First of. We'll ritual how did you come across the story so I cover hedge funds for the Wall Street Journal and I had been researching one of the subjects. It's actually in the story and started noticing some websites that drew my interest out. I was looking on Google. And that's sort of how this began this lead you to an Austin in Texas based company called Status Labs. What exactly is the service that they're offering their clients to status labs is online reputation management company? Their external lawyer. We are sent us a letter indicating more about what they do and what they told us in what they were we have in we put in. Our story is a single false. Accusation can cause permanent damage damage to a person or a company's hard earned reputation. This imbalance of power has made the first page of Google. I and oftentimes the last impression for individuals and companies The where continued attended on to tell us that fifty five satisfied employee's US quote variety of proprietary methods which are always evolving to help clients disseminate positive and truthful information about themselves themselves online. The first part of your story deals with Jacob Gottlieb who was a hedge fund manager is used the services of status labs to scrub his image Jacob Gottlieb. The league ran a large hedge. Fund called Victim Asset Management. A few years ago. It had several issues that came up one of its money. Managers was accused of insider insider trading and died by suicide a few days after he was charged Mister Gottlieb's former brother-in-law go into legal troubles as well and his on effectively leap was forced to shut down about a year ago or a little more than a year ago he was considering raising money again for Hedge Fund and and my understanding is that last year he also hired this reputation company status laps any paid thousands of dollars to do this cracked. Did it work. As far as GOTTLIEB's attempt to rehabilitate his reputation several websites featured Mister Gottlieb. After he hired status ops so he would search for his name on Google. You would come across these websites that appeared like news outlets but we're not actual news outlets google news in particular was featuring several of these of these websites until I called and asked about them and Google news took them down. They said that several of these websites didn't meet at standards over Transparency and he also tried to rehabilitate his image in the form of highlighting his donations. His philanthropy correct so several of these articles. When you read through them the the bulk of them there are overwhelmingly positive and fathering they would tout his investment acumen his charity and in one case found on a website called Medical Daily Times? It said that he had donated to initiative. Nyu when I called NYU. They said That he actually hadn't donated to that initiative Though he had donated to other initiatives that at the school though. Interestingly when you call that website pizzeria entire onto was Was the the number that picked up. That's funny Pizzeria Rian Toronto. Yeah and then. The author of that particular article had a photo that was actually A Canadian theatre actor and then when I tried to meets the candidate theater actor has publicist told me that I had no idea. has his photo was being used. In this way Rachel talk about wikipedia. which was started by status labs co-founders because that figures into this as well so i? The CO founders of satisfieds pre ran a company called wikipedia which was banned effectively by Wikipedia by the organization that is overseeing wikipedia Several years ago and going forward and to today's status labs one of the services that they apparently have provided to some their clients. Is wikipedia edits. Now that's not a problematic history on its own But you can't go in there without their permission Kenya well. They could use a free encyclopedia so I could create an account. And and and and and edit it but I have to disclose wants me to disclose if I am working on behalf of somebody if I if somebody's paying me to edit their page I am I am supposed to under wikipedia is rules to disclose that what were some other more notable clients of. There's some fairly familiar names here. According to my reporting status ops provided added services to several notable people or companies one of them is now education. Secretary Betsy Devos. There's another large Hedge Fund Citadel L. Massive Hedge Fund On Wall Street received wikipedia edits and And also the owner of thoroughness of the defunct company. Well Theranos the company. Leave Rachel. Have you had any responses from the people that you report it on in your story namely Jacob Gottlieb Betsy Devos or theranos else so Jacob Gottlieb when I asked him about status labs. He said that he hired them to help him. Watch his new venture and then in relation to generally speaking but also to The website that featured information about him about NYU donation. That wasn't accurate. He told me nobody would make an investment based on a no-name online online blog. Although he did say that it's helped his reception on tinder the dating APP. Betsy Devos I didn't get to speak with her but her spokesperson at Advocation Department said that it doesn't sound like the Department or the secretary of a relationship with status labs and didn't respond other questions that I sent an S. for Theranos I tried reaching Elizabeth homes as attorney As well as other attorneys and I could not reach them. What's the bigger picture here? Rachel in the age of disinformation. You know this story about manipulating Google's Algorithms and wikipedia entries and essentially getting away with it despite regulatory scrutiny. What's what's your biggest takeaway from this story? My biggest takeaway is. Is that despite many efforts to make it easier for us to find information online regular information online there are still ways for websites they can masquerade as news outlets to appear online. Avoid Google's detection even appear on Google news which is a source of information for many Americans and I think I think think it raises a lot of questions Wall Street Journal reporter Rachel Levy. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me.

"Let me introduce Hilary Shelton. He's senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the end of the Lacey pe- he's director of the ACP is Washington bureau. Hilary Shelton. Thank you for joining us. I appreciate it ethics. Great to be with you. So tell me what you're hearing in this conversation in what your take so far. If he were to give education secretary, Betsy DeVos grade, what would it be? Well, let's let me hold off on the great for just a minute Matali about some of the fixes and then we can decide great accordingly. Okay, we'll make this evidence-based, took out like that. Thank you, MS. The number of concerned pad as Mr. Voss's gone into to serve as secretary of education. I have to be honest until you and transparent as well and say that the NWC p opposed her confirmation because our feelings concerns were that are backed bounded experienced into lack the expertise necessary to handle issues a public education from pre k. through twelve. And of course, other big issues for the NWC Pierre concerns like higher education. I began hearing some conversation along those lines as well as the about the affordability of higher education. And he was talking about private higher education in institutions and the like, and some concerns we pay along those lines as well. And the n. AA CPA is also involved in a suit against DeVos. Right? Yes. Why don't you tell us about that? Because this is about civil rights laws right in the way they're the the way that they're imposed. Absolutely. Absolutely. So the NWC Pia Fata lawsuit along that friends at the national federation of the blind and the council of pant attorney. He's an advocates against US secretary of education and the department of education office of civil rights in the US district court in Maryland for the departments because the department road back, I mean, the civil rights enforcement regulations, we thought were crucial to making sure that every American regardless of race, ethnicity, points of national origin. Any other differences are even disability would have an opportunity to get a high quality education. We concerned the department of education pretty much summarily change the policies allowing for the dismissal of civil rights complaints, and the ability of organizations to appealed their rulings. So what that means is that we've actually cut out -tunities to make sure that it's known if an institution is discriminating because of wants differences and other challenges within our society and very well organizations should have an opportunity to file lawsuits when necessary and to appeal decisions. But the changes that have happened now at the department. Of education through its office of civil rights actually moved to make it much more difficult and even a limited opportunities along those lines. We're actually hold on Hillary because I wanna bring max into this conversation and max. What are you hearing an in Hillary's concerns about enforcement of civil rights regulations in the department of education? I mean, these things are are a balancing act, and I think the balance became way out of wack during the Obama administration. Right? He's talking about making it easier to Smith civil rights complaints, which you should be able to dismiss a civil rights complaint if you've spent years and years investigating and found no evidence of wrongdoing, but under the way the Obama administration do these investigations, certainly something like school discipline, it's it didn't matter whether or not you actually found any evidence of discrimination. These so-called investigations were actually an enforcement tool to core school districts to change their policies. So I think that these things are a balancing act. It's not about rights versus no rights. It's about how. Do we, you know, balance trying to make sure that students have a an appeal if they feel that they've been screwed it against without letting that become car 'blanche to have the department of education, rewrite local policies. So Hilary Shelton if it's about a balancing act, your concern is the balance is gonna little bit too far in the other direction. It's well. That's certainly what he's arguing, but I would argue that quite frankly, will be done now with these changes, it means it without they made these changes. Let me just back up for just a second without going through the legal required notice in comedy period, the would prevent the piano, the organizations to voice our opinion before they made these public changes..

"One, eight hundred, four, two, three, eight, two, five, five. We're talking about secretary of education, Betsy DeVos. What do you see coming out of the Trump administration with regard to federal education policy? Let's go to Kim. She's calling from Carrollton Virginia, Kim, you're on the air. It's good to have you go ahead. Kim, are you there? Let's move on here. Oh, Kim, there you are. Great. You're on the air. So go ahead with your comment. Hi. I have an example of the abuses that can happen with a for profit school program. My program I was in the Sasha's therapy certificate program as well as the schools did allied health, which is the dental assistants nurse assistant. And those other programs would be required excuse me to have internships outside of the school to demonstrate their practical learning of the day to day tasks. So those the school had to have good working relationships with other professionals in the marketplace. The massage therapy program did practical in house. And so when I was getting ready to graduate and looking at perspective employers, I've found out that the impression of my school was such that they pushed out these uneducated unprepared students that weren't even worse. Allowing to come in for an interview. So I was turned away before I would even have a chance to put in my application and then it got worse about halfway through my education. My instructor was fired, not because he was a poor performer. He was actually making our tests harder trying to prepare for the national boards. Whereas the school was trying to dumb everything down so they can keep pushing through graduates and keep bringing in more money. And also they were heavily heavily promoting the school to the naval community that because we're close to Norfolk, a lot of students coming in using GI bills, then either money coming out. Gonna jump in because I think got the kernel of what you're saying. You're talking about a for profit program for which there's it sounds like there was very little accountability. We're going to pick this issue up, but I want to introduce. I wanna ask Michelle, Hackman and Maxine to stand by. And I want to hear from one of the more outspoken critics of education secretary, Betsy DeVos. It's more a Healy. She's the attorney, general format, Massachusetts. She was one of seventeen state attorneys, general who filed suit against boss for legally delaying enforcement of a regulation to protect students from low performing career college programs. That was one of the lawsuits and attorney general Healy, welcome to own point. It's good to have you great to be with you Anthony. So I'd like to start and just talk to you a little bit about this lawsuit that challenged devices decision earlier this year to postpone or scaleback parts of the rule known as the gainful. Employment rule. I was talking with Michelle Hackman early in the hour about that. First of all, let me hear from you remind us what that rule is and why you're suing. Well, basically the gainful employment rule is really important rule that was put in place to protect students and to protect taxpayers. And basically what it says is that if the school can't show that students are getting educated, if they can't show that students aren't getting the training and the jobs that they were promised, then they can't qualify for federal loans. Meaning that school can't be eligible to take federal loan money really important based on years of investigations in cases that my office has brought against the for profit school industry in particular. That's what led to this rule. Again, it's about making sure that students in taxpayers aren't getting ripped off. And unfortunately, as another example of the terribly misguided policies and detrimental policies of Betsy DeVos, she came in and basically rolled back that rule that was there to protect us and we took to to the courts, right? So. Attorney general Huey I guess, devices response to this. She says that the rule, if fully implemented would unfairly an arbitrary Lee of limit students ability to pursue certain types of higher education and career training programs. What do you say to that? That it goes too far and that it might actually impact in a negative way students ability to to access these programs. Well, you've you've spent time with students, you've heard from students. Their stories are absolutely heartbreaking, and I can tell you, Anthony, based on our investigations and the cases we've brought, she could not be more wrong. Betsy DeVos is about a few things..

"So during the September speech at George Mason University, she announced a new approach to campus sexual misconduct. DeVos repeatedly emphasized the plight of the accused here. She is one rape. Is one too many. One assault is one too many. One aggressive act of harassment is one too many. One person denied due process is one too many, though a secretary of education, Betsy DeVos. Let me introduce Maxine and he's a senior fellow at the Manhattan institute where he focused focuses on education policy Maxine and welcome back to one point. It's great to have you to be Anthony. Anthony, I know you've been listening along to this this conversation. How would you sum up so far? What Betsy DeVos has brought as secretary of education? Yeah, I think US early in the are with the grade would be I would give her a b minus. I think that she is taking the federal government's role in a more modest and quit, frankly, productive direction. But unfortunately, the things that she is doing require a lot of finesse and explanation and and kind of power persuasion that she hasn't quite been able to to muster. So I think that while what she's been doing, it's been substantively productive. I think she's unfortunately kind of discredited a lot of the, the, the reasons behind the, the approaches he's bringing to the table. And how so are you saying that it's essentially, this is a this is a question of of messaging as opposed to policy commitment? Yeah. I mean, I think that it's not as though it is only this kind of far right wing that was opposed to the Obama administration's. Very heavy handed approach and education. You know, the only major bipartisan Bill of the Obama administration was the every student succeeds act in which Republicans Democrats got together and said, the federal government has gone way too far in education. We need to trust teachers. We need to let them figure out these decisions. We need to trust local school boards. We need to rein in the power of the department of education, and that's something that was overwhelmingly approved in congress, but it's a message that she can't quite carry forward without becoming a lightning rod. So in your view, Maxine reining in the power of the department of education. Can you point to one specific effort that Betsy DeVos has made where you know there is a concrete effort to rein in the power of the department of education that makes sense to you even if she hasn't carried it out or delivered a clear message on why it's important? Yeah, absolutely. So one very clear example is what's called the significant disproportionality regulation and the yes. And there's a lot of this kind of language in the world of education. But go ahead, say it one more time. I just want to the significant disproportionality regulation, significant disproportionality regulation, explain that. So the Obama administration looked at the statistics around race and special education and thought that African American students were over represented in special education services and therefore wanted to create a formula that would pressure states to reduce this alleged overrepresentation. Right. Problem is research. The came out after that regulation was put forward says that actually, once you sufficiently control for enough factors there actually significantly underrepresented, do you have a regulation that's in place based on faulty data that would be pushing states to further serve already underserved demographic and the secretary as you know, thus far put that on hold and should rewrite it, but in the process hasn't been able to, you know, make a case as to why this numbers based approach it as. Misguided and she's just kind of gotten flack for, you know, ignoring potential discrimination over critics, say around special education at indication. Let's take some calls.

"Faulting on their loans. We're going to these four profit colleges, and so the Obama administration created these rules that said, you know, if you're graduating students that are not making a lot of money and or taking on too much debt that they can't repay. We're gonna shut you down. We're going to cut off your federal money and and we reported last week that Betsy DeVos is planning to repeal that rule to sort of let you know for profit colleges operate is that used to write and this these these rules Obama wanted to put these rules into effect after the collapse of to for profit colleges, Carinthian college in IT technical institute which collapsed. They collapsed in two thousand fifteen in two thousand sixteen, and they were found to have misled students with false advertising misleading claims that kind of stuff. So these were rules essentially to protect students from this kind these kinds of alleged abuses. Right. Exactly. That's cool. We're saying, you know, if you. Through this program, you're, you have a ninety, nine percent guarantee of getting a job and students were enrolling in taking on huge amounts of debts, and those things were just turning out to be flatly not true. And this is also led to lawsuits by a whole bunch of attorneys-general across the country. We're going to be hearing from one of them at the bottom of this hour. But essentially, what is the case that these attorneys general are making. Well, they are saying they're suing Betsy DeVos because she is trying to repeal both the the game full employment rule, which would shut down some of these worst. The worst of the worst colleges, you know, the ones that really are not graduating people with any kind of earnings power. And then there's another rule that I think we'll get to in a moment that that she has sort of rolled back where students who went to colleges that defrauded them or allowed to actually ask the government to forgive their loans, and she's a sort of tried to make that process a little tougher. Right. And why is that? What's the argument in favor of making that process tougher for students who feel that they were defrauded? Well, there's a serious concern. You know the the money on the line is taxpayer money that these students are taking on forgiving, all of it sort of willy nilly is really going to cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of not billions of dollars. And so you have to be very careful. The other thing is that the government really tries to recoup money from colleges once they've once they've forgiven loans. And some of these four prophets were saying, well, the the process that you're using to determine whether we've defrauded or students is arbitrary. We're not really getting a chance to show the case that it was. We weren't lying, but it was that, you know, we're being wrongly targeted. And so some of the schools were being asked to pay sums of money that they said they couldn't afford. Now, another issue, the department of education physician interim guidance on how colleges should investigate and penalize sexual assault under title nine, which prohibits gender, discrimination in education. Can you talk a little bit about how she is dealing trying to make those changes? Absolutely. So for years, you know, President Obama had set out these rules governing how campus sexual assault cases could go on college campuses and the.
