And and right now we have to get through it and You didn't mention but the racial unrest as well. The stomach racism all of that stuff is front and center, and it's important for us to continue to move forward one of the other to get to this time. So you just talked about the election.

Thank the Boston Police Department for this action and our alliance. Partners and members of the community played a role to arrest suspects. In copy? Square. For the ballot box incident this was an isolated incident and so we're going to be making sure that we've asked the district attorney to investigate it to its fullest extent. A number one priority certainly making sure that the integrity of the elections are upheld and I wanNA thank all the partners and I think as we continue to before I do not feel I think that hopefully this is an isolated incident and I think it might be but we are going to continue. We have the boxes monitored under surveillance cameras and we're going to be increasing our security. So people feel free to devote and we want everyone to vote. So you know if you if you haven't early vote out and you want to use these boxes in the primary had a couple of places we have seventeen right now in in the final. So we want you to use box.

We talked a minute ago about some of these challenges with the corona virus. The city now has an average positive test rate above six percent according to the city's latest analysis of neighborhood testing data I wanted to ask you. So we've been hearing public health officials for awhile anticipate some kind of surge in the fall and I wondered are the numbers that we're actually seeing now in line with what you expected for this time of year in whatever modeling or planning might have done or or are these surges the surge bigger than you thought we'd be in right now how are you looking it and thinking about it? I don't think categorizes as a surge yet it's definitely increased We're seeing numbers every every week. Now the new numbers as of today from yesterday, and over the weekend two, hundred and seventy three new cases which a lot probably the highest of seeing one day. Actually might be two days in number by the seeing or in hundred something range of the day. Now, for the last couple of days that's the highest we've seen since around June So certainly you know I probably already is making residents are safe and how big The experts have said that we would see a potentially an uptick in the month of October November and December and they also has mentioned that it isn't coming upon all of us that we could actually keep those numbers down by wearing masks and making sure that we do everything we can social distancing avoiding black gatherings I'm also encouraging people to things tonight today to get tested I think it's really important having accurate number of tests you're in the city of Boston. So we get an accurate account with the number really right now six point two percent. In the second piece is down suggesting the people to get your flu shot. Because as we head into this month of September October November area that you know the people are GonNa, get any the colds flu.

"And just briefly before we move on to our next subject, a lot of parents also last night, not in agreement with the step and they're concerned that their kids have spent a tremendous amount of time studying and preparing for the test would you say to them? I do understand that this is a disappointment for many parents who were expected out of their children to. HAVE IT admission into the exam schools but they have the same fair shot that everybody else has now and you know that is that is what happens when you equal the playing field some who have privileged will have a little less privilege in in that and That's the only way that you really give at equity and so hopefully, we'll have greater geographic diversity and students are still marked on there and and ranked on their merit because this is reggae. So this has been something that's gone out in the myth that this is a lottery. This is not allowed ARY. This is still a ranking by GPA, however, there's more geographical representation all throughout the city, which is much fair way. To to ensure that everybody has a chance at one of these three schools. Right in our however, let me just talk this. I think that we should just have three. We should have we we do have many other high schools that are really great choices for students, and so it's really looking at our overall high school redesign and making sure that we have great options for all of our students where they have arts, academics and rigor in athletics are opportunities for all of our students in. That's really the goal is that you know it's not just three schools, but it is schools in every single neighborhood where or parents feel confident they could send their kids to to and they'll have a great success. Okay. So all Boston public school students are home today after announcement yesterday that the system was going fully remote. When I heard the announcement I, thought I. Wonder was this a decision or was there a number trigger and we reached a point where the numbers obviated the decision sort of had to do this which which was it. Well, it is. You know about the numbers relates about the positivity rate that we have in the city of Boston and I can't thank chief Martinez for his leadership on this and this debt crisis as well as the mayor's We know they have just been great partners in helping us understand the community spread and whether it is or is not safe to open up our schools and so.

By the lawyers for civil rights who her in collaboration with many other civil rights organizations including the N.

Align that to the state standards so that our BPS students had a fighting chance at doing well on the test and then covert hit, and of course, we know that our students were disproportionately impacted.

So now we turn to Superintendent of Boston, public schools Brenda Casella who joins us on the Line Superintendent Caselli us. Welcome back to Radio Boston. Thank you glad to be on. So Superintendent this has got to be a very busy day for you two major policy decisions affecting the Boston public. Schools in the last twenty, four hours, I want to use your time well and talk about those two things. But First, let's address story I discussed with WBRC Max. Larkin. Which is the resignation of Boston School Committee Chair Michael Condo was his resignation appropriate under the circumstances. Will you know Max said it right where you know this is unfortunate. It was awkward at the moment and you know none of us want to You know here that and it was just very very challenging at time and I'm. And it was the right decision for the chairman to step down. I spoke with him earlier today I know that he is highly regretful and embarrassed by his own statements and has apologized but again. you know this is this is what's really facing us in. It's a true reflection as Max said of the the conversation that we were having last night about race in the city and within our schools in the inequities that exist and the challenge for all of us at. biases in how we? Respond in own those and learn from them and grow from them. In the in the context of this heightened time and the tensions in the meeting already last night I wanna ask you what do you think the impact is on the relationship between the schools, the school committee families, and what are the next steps you need to take the superintendent to address any concerns about what that means for these relationships. Yeah you know we're we're in the middle of a pandemic and we have said all along. You know this is the triple pandemic for so many of our families of. You know the illness, of course in the virus that were fighting the joblessness homelessness with this moratorium being lifted on evictions, and then of course. The racism within this country, and so it's quite the challenge as you superintendent coming in to address the significant inequities within our system for.

"Okay. So Max did most people on the zoom call here Lokondo and what happened next. Well I, think we have to understand this remark didn't surface didn't happen until around eleven thirty PM. So we're six and a half hours in and I have to say I myself did not catch it live bad time to take a break. But then you come back to it and people are calling Lokondo twitter not a huge group but you know four or five people that I saw were kind of spread, and then of course, it really gathered steam as people look back at that and saw the transcript this morning, and then shortly thereafter look onto to inform Mayor Walsh that he would resign. Okay and what have the reactions Ben since the news of his resignation what are you hearing? A Yeah I. Think. The economy of the city that we were in one that ironically condo. Called attention into in his remarks as he announced his his yes. Vote ceiling unanimity to suspend the test. He said, you know we're a progressive city. Where Liberty we or those are parts of our identity and at the same time it's divided very real. He said it simmers. Just beneath the surface and gosh, it just feels like such a awkward uncomfortable case in point of of that fact that you can make this change. So many have called for for such a long time and at the same time, there appears to be some sort of racial. Animists or or a lack of care and sensitivity you know just just off screen. A number of people called for his resignation Max now it's happened. I. Have they have you heard comments from public officials or others this afternoon? It seemed like a pretty healthy minority if not a majority of school committee members had called for his resignation as ten or eleven. And I have heard. From some of them, I spoke to councilor Andrea Campbell who was among those calling for to resign, and she reflected a little on the on the pain of that moment last night. Here. We are talking about inequities in our education system. But then to have it turned into a conversation where the leader of that body, a public servant would be caught. Saying racist remarks just I think signify too many that there is still incredible work for us to do in this city. Now, Campbell also said she hopes the next chair of the school. Committee is a person of color and they've got a few people of Color on the committee from which to choose as well as possibly making a new appointment I. Think we just want to say you know. Boston School Committee is unique in that its appointed by the mayor. With the exception of a few regional school districts in the. State. And? Andrea Campbell's running for mayor and There have been debates about having an elected school committee again. So this points up those issues as well. All. Right.

"Last night during a Boston school. Committee meeting over Zoom Lokondo appeared to mock the names of participants in the virtual meeting and was caught on his microphone. The eight and a half hour meeting was focused primarily on a vote to suspend for one year the use of an exam for admission to Boston exam schools and joining us now is WBRC Max Larkin who covered the committee meeting last night. Max Welcome back. Thanks for having me back, Jonah. So what an Odyssey, Max I I really think we have to start by you setting the stage for we got this eight and a half hours zoom meeting. The subject is something that's been long source of pain and debate exposing racial faultlines in the Boston public schools. So who was on this virtual meeting? Hundreds of people CIANO, you had one hundred seventy plus people. Comment in public comments section, it was an incredible display. These these meetings tend to go long when they're in person You know in in past years they've gone until the lights automatically turned off, but this had to be a record breaker. People. From across the city passionate testimony and the meeting ran from five to two am yes. Oh up almost nine hours and it was mainly people really invested in discussing this change on both sides. And now give us a sense of the stakes and the tenor of the meeting where this moment with Lokondo happen giving you a as you say hundred seventy people making public comment here. I think you have to think about the outsize profile really of the Boston Latin school not not be exam schools in general so much is that one school it feels like this brass ring people really covid a seat in that school. So when you propose a modification even on a one year basis namely dropping the test people. Developed strong opinions. So you had a bunch of people saying, this would be a blow to the history still very raw of structural racism in the district. But then you had parents largely white and Asian parents saying the change had been rushed through and would devastate their children or derail their chances at the best possible life coming out of the school. So it was in this really charged context in which the remark was made. Okay, and now I think we've got that backdrop. So after some discussion among our team, we decided that we should play the tape from the moment where Lokondo appears to mock participants in the meeting the first voice, you're GonNa hear his executive secretary Elizabeth Sullivan calling forth the next participants in the public comment portion of the meeting which Max reference. Now, this moment was offensive enough that Laconto apologized and resigned over it today so listeners should be forewarned.

Some of us have been able to work from home from day one. Of the lucky ones we're able to stay in our homes a wherever we choose to isolate and work but others have been out sacrificing for us whether or not.

Those are the folks who clean those the. Grocery stores they've been doing it. So sacrifice has been happening across the board, some of taking more direct low than others. So I WANNA pick up now on the school's theme which had mentioned a minute ago it.

So we know that Boston shut down the next phase of in-person learning after trigger of four percent positive actually four point one percent. Ed You. Compared that to Catholic schools which are operating. So does that mean you think the city's making the wrong call? No mean they the city has a different composition of students in it. They have It's not the same system I just meant that's a shining example of people who are in person and their finger way to do it, and it's great should be an inspiration. It's I don't think it should necessarily dictate what Mayor Walsh in Sumer tank affiliates. But should inspire us to say the boy people do the right thing. If they really try, we can balance I think a lot of this is about balance because public health is more than the virus there are people with tremendous health problems that aren't getting them solve their people who are very desperate because of lack of employment because they're sick I I just think balancing act between you know all different kinds of public health to be as healthy as possible, overall and not just view it as the virus alone. And let's grab our first call on this and listeners. What do you think of of the surgeon coronavirus in the Commonwealth? How are you feeling about it?
