The Legacy of Trauma: Can Experiences Leave A Biological Imprint?
"Okay so we are talking about epa genetic. Stay where do we start areola. Well we gotta go back to the basics genetics minus the abbey part so most of the time when we think of genetic changes. We think about dna mutations be squeezed changes in the actual sequence of dna. Yeah and it turns out. This isn't the whole story. Our dna is covered in small molecules. That tell her body had a use the dna. Brian dies gave me a great metaphor to describe all this. He teaches at the university of southern california school of medicine. So within you. And i is a book of life which is our dna and that dna needs to be read. And if our dna is a book of life than those small molecules i was talking about our punctuation marks and depending on what punctuation is where the book is going to be read very differently. Meaning those markers can amplify or down certain parts of our dna so when we talk about epigenetics were talking about how these molecules around our dna affect our dna is read exactly and we can see this really clearly in different parts of our body. How well every cell in our body has the same blueprint the same dna. But we know that not every cell in our body is the same we don't have. We don't have is growing in our fingertips. Speak for yourself over there so look even though ourselves all have the same dna. The dna is being used differently in different cells. And i'm guessing epigenetics has something to do. Yes our ib genetic markers vary in different parts of our body in the i for example. There's certain markers that say you become an i cell and suppress everything will make you a tooth. And here's the thing. Our environment and behaviors change our genetics. All the time not enough to make peace start growing out of your eyes. I promise but still changing. Yeah and i. I remember learning about this discovery in grad school and it being revolutionary like oh our environment can affect our genetics in real time without actually changing the sequence of our dna at all. Yeah and of course. It's more complicated than that. But this field is a really big deal. It's shown us that different environmental factors like diet and pollution can change our epi genetic markers and now people are trying to figure out if trauma and stress also cause genetic changes and if they do can. These changes be passed down like the dutch hunger study. We talked about earlier right. Yeah among others now look. We can't assume too much from these human studies. They have small sample. Sizes are tons of confounding variables. Right right i mean. Isn't it possible that these descendants are more likely to have these diseases due to social factors. Yes i asked bianca the same question she said. I sure that's a problem with human studies. it's really hard to separate the learned experience from the biological one. It is hard to say that a parent who has starred will now then treat food in the same way apparent who is not starved. And what we're interested in looking at is if we remove the parent from the situation and we just have the sperm cells and the exiles doll the work. Do we still see these changes and one way to start to figure that out is doing animal studies. Right so brian. The scientists who gave us that cool metaphor earlier did some of the first groundbreaking research on this. He basically introduced male mice to a particular smell. And when we exposed the meister smell we administer a very mild foot. Shaw that we i are selves at. We know it's not painful but mildly annoying to the mouse and as a consequence that particular smell becomes stressful to the parental generation.

Falconer was a guest by the way yesterday on the John McGuinness show here on Cape became, You know what they talked about? Really focused on so many issues, but really focus on the fact that our California public schools need to be open now. Not a month from now, Not a year from now, but our families and our kids deserve that to be opened. We can safely do that the fact that other states across the country have safely reopened their public schools yet we haven't Private schools, of course, are open and in California, but yet together better hasn't provided the leadership that actually get our kids back in school, So I feel very strongly about that is the father of kids that are in public school myself? People are exasperated. They're fed up and it's time for a change. You know, that's a topic. We spent a lot of time on yesterday and our program and you know, Governor Gavin Newsom has said he wants kids back in school, too. He's told the teachers union. Look, it can't be perfect. We got to get these kids back. But the Sita is saying, Well, we want to get back when we get vaccinated, and that wouldn't happen until the end of this month. Right? Right.

And yet we still haven't got a handle on distributing our vaccines, one of the worst in the nation and the fact that so many issues continue to grow. We have skyrocketing homelessness across California and yet the very proactive Infinitive action that I took. His mayor of San Diego did not allow a tense on the sidewalk in my city. We reduce homelessness by double digits, and we're such a great state we have We have such great people. It's not about partisanship, not about Democrat Republican. It's about give me a governor that's going to get the job done. Okay, so that's Kevin Faulconer and the Republicans said We would love to be able to roll out an audio clip from Governor Newsome for you on this story, right? I mean, we've heard from advocates of the governor saying, Look, no matter who was in office at this time. They were going to get heavy criticism because this is just, you know, a situation No one's dealt with before. But the reason we haven't rolled on an audio clip from Governor Newsome is there's not one to roll out. He hasn't talked about it yet. He's not totally well. He's welcome any time here. Any time. Yeah, well, we give him his much time is he wants if he wants to come out and show absolutely we'd love to talk to about a whole host of issues. Oh, it's it's always an open door. So hopefully we will hear about it soon, but I think right now until it actually happened. I agree. Perhaps his office is just choosing. You know, Kristina, my back.

In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class.

Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win.

If you got it. I'm sorry. I know it sucks, but it's a perfect cautionary tale. Here's an icky thing. That will make marks on your private bits that you will never ever get rid of at everybody who went to the stupid concert got it because they were acting like bunny rabbits. Kids from the real world man you live in the world. You gotta show him. How it works here. But there are a couple of groups who are currently in Sacramento jumping up and down and screaming because they're scared to death that somebody's going to tell their kids the gays exist. And I. If you've never been in a classroom. If you've never if somehow you've managed to entirely avoid the experience of the California Public school system. Look. I personally believe that teaching vocation and that the very best people who do that job. Do it for the love of teaching for the love of the subject for the love of seeing that that sparked that light go on to the students is there's also people who do it because you get summers off. And after you've done it long enough. It's really hard to fire. You. My experience as somebody who is full disclosure, everybody married to a schoolteacher is that the majority of people involved in that line of work fall into the category of vocation because if you don't like it, not even if you don't like it, if you don't love that work, you won't stick around because the pay is not amazing the hours are way longer than you think they're going to be you don't just show up to school five minutes beforehand rattle off what's been bouncing around in your head since you got your bachelor's, and then pack it up to fifty five. No, no, no. You got a great papers. You gotta prep tests. You got adult curriculum. You got meetings. You got parent teacher conferences. You got administrative stuff. You got clubs you got advisory board. I oh my God. It never ends. But that's there's heads in the teaching system. There's there's people who aren't doing a great job. Whether you have the bug and you love to teach and you are as passionate about it as the very best teachers or you are you are the Pitta me of the bad teacher trope. You don't care and you're just waiting for June tenth to roll around for the bell to ring. So you can get out of dodge. And enjoy not hearing the sound of little pitter-patter feet down the halls for three months. One thing that those people have in common is that they don't want to talk to other people's kids about sex. There are some there. There's some folks were very interested. In health is a subject who are very interested in talking about biology and the way that reproduction functions and how how you get into the genetic elements of various species, interactions and all of that. And they're fascinated by it most of the people teaching your kids do not want to have to get up in front of a classroom and say the word penis, they don't wanna get up in front of a classroom and talk about genitals. They don't wanna talk about hair. They don't wanna talk about body odor. They don't wanna talk about. Why it is that suddenly you need deodorant? And I don't blame them. And if you saw the look that Frank just gave me what I said, the P word, you know, that it made him uncomfortable when he's a grown, man. And that's a clinical word. So the idea that there is a conspiracy in primary and secondary education in the state of California to run around teaching kindergarteners graphic sexual practices. Is silly. Best and possibly insane. Are there people who have written curriculum? That is completely inappropriate for small children. Usually when you find curriculum. That's completely inappropriate for small children. It was meant for older children or even for adults because it turns out there are grown adults who don't understand how reproduction works who don't understand the opposite. Sexes anatomy, and maybe don't understand their own. But in the process of evaluating all of the available material inevitably somebody somewhere submits or suggests or simply leaves in the same room as the stuff that's actually being considered something.

But before it, you know for she had her own. Line if you will her own story, and then once that came around when they actually made her into a character. It looks like home. I gosh ally was a white woman. Oh, no. No boy. Okay. So I I'm not sure how the how that makes sense that you must I guess all characters. Now, do they all have to be gay women? Maybe that's the deal. Maybe every new movie character has to be gay transvestite transgendered person or a person of color. No more white people in movies, please. We're just done with white. We actually had one director say. He can't imagine ever giving a role casting a white, man. White doesn't even need to apply and stuff. So great. She's. We're in an upside down world as I think, you know, founding fathers are also under attack right now students at Hofstra. University are demanding that the Thomas Jefferson statue on on campus be removed. Yeah. The statue has been the center of controversy on the campus. It's been defaced with the word decolonize and black lives matter signs and stickers on it. Foof? So there's a big protest now every year, and in fact, multiple times a year about getting rid of it. They stand around the around the statue and demand that it be torn down. Go study. It is about what the statue represents a legacy of racism and bigotry on college campuses. That's what Thomas Jefferson represents you. She's the organizers of this our students from Hofstra and some staff members from Planned Parenthood of Nassau County. Oh, so, you know, their quality individuals. Look, I who am I to judge. I'm just saying these people are going to burn in the fires of hell. That's all. I mean, I, you know, judge anyone so no I'm just saying I'm just saying. I am so tired of the Thomas Jefferson hatred, the George Washington hatred, which they're also is we've got this story about a northern California Public school. They may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of get this, George Washington heights. Yes. Because of confer concerns, it's offensive and demeaning to native Americans in African Americans. I mean open up a book. A working group determined the mural made up of several panels traumatizes students and community members. If it traumatizes these little darlings, they need to just stay home K homeschool where nothing bad can ever happen. And they can see only what's on the walls of your home. Don't let them stray outside ever for any reason. So tired of this advocates for keeping the mural say that removing it ignores the intent of the artist and represents an attempt to erase history. Yeah. Well, I mean, somebody said once those that we're going to have to make sacrifices have to change our conversation for station. We're gonna have to change our tradition history based the move into a different place. So I guess what we ask ourselves is is removing a statue of Thomas Jefferson and erasing mural of George Washington. Isn't that fulfilling everything she just said there and more it absolutely is? This is what this is about. In nineteen thirty six this artist of Victor Amitav painted, the thirteen panels that make up the life of Washington. Keep in mind again. This is George Washington high school. Detail dinner. He was a prominent Russia baron painter who created the murals as part of a works project administration project undertaken by the new deal.

And it was another big week in the news. We talked earlier in the first half hour about Virginia's democratic governor. Who's in big trouble north, and whether or not he's going to survive, and my guest is by the next time the next day by this time next week. No, he's probably going. We'll see. But the pressure is mounting both Democrats and Republicans calling for his resignation, and then we transitioned into what has been a tremendous move to the left by number of people in the democrat party this past week, Senator Kamla Harris, and she's not alone. And we're going to get to another one coming up in just a second before we get to that. I do want to get to this. Because I think it's really important especially for parents. And I'm gonna make this quick before we get back into the transition topic of Democrats moving really really left. These are signs that your child is being bullied, and I'm gonna make him very very quick because you you may be going through this in your your home number one a sudden change in your child's behavior look for this because bullying is such a huge problem. Whether your child is very outgoing person or are very shy person or a sporty person, if they change all of a sudden you need to take notice number two unexplained cuts and bruises that's self explanatory. Keep an eye on that number three if they try to avoid certain areas. So if you have a kid who always walks or bikes to school, very happily in now is desperate for a ride or they become lazy? Maybe not number two number the next one. I should say new friends. Do they have new friends are they changing friends changing friends could be more out of necessity than desire. Keep an eye on that taking their anger out on siblings. Do you see that type of change at home at the dinner table next? Are they engaged? In high risk behaviors this is a warning sign much more prevalent in adolescence, then preteens self-destructive even self harming actions. A big warning sign that a kid is being tormented. Keep an eye on that next random good or bad grades. If you see grade start to move off, the you know, what is the typical needle, and they're moving one way or the other that's a sign and personal items that persistently just happened to get lost. Oh, I lost that. Maybe not maybe Johnny the bully stole it. I just wanted to get that in because it's really an important topic. And those are just really some key signs at that caught my eye today.

My comments quick it's regarding the Medicare for all and the free college for everybody. If you're in favor of those things or you're trying to make your mind, I suggest you go look at the VA system. Yeah. Right. And look at the public schools, well w work California gets raided nationwide. While the California Public school system is in a big big huge challenge. I mean, look at Sacramento. I mean, they're bankrupt the unified school district. It's that's a mess. Hey, and listen Mike you live in Stockton. And all of a sudden, I just as you're talking. I'm thinking wait a minute Stockton. That's a city where the mayor and city leaders are handing out free money to people. Yeah. What's what's more interesting is they don't have as many people signing up for that. As they thought. I don't know the statistics on it. But there was a comment honest the other day about it's not a big rush for people to come in to get the money. Is that right? I'm very surprised by that. Because as I understand it. My correct me if I'm wrong, but there are no strings attached to this money. Right. I mean, you get like five hundred bucks a month. Right. I'm it's five hundred bucks a month is my understanding, and I'm not really up on the detail. We stopped taking the local paper a long time ago. But yeah, that is happening here. And my only point was if you want an example of government control, the things that you're talking about you know, you can go out and see them right now today. Well, and you know, they're Mike. I think there are people who could argue there are other agencies that you could point to as well, it wouldn't just stick with the VA in public school system. I lied appreciated. Your other caller previous caller who works in the government in her comments. There's someone who knows they work in the system.

It was a master's program where you get a teaching credential with it I spent all of twenty seventeen school year looking for a teaching job.

Well, but let's let's dig let's dig into that. What giving give me some evidence that you actually use the proximity principle, which I talk about where you you were really strategic to make sure that you aren't just applying for these teaching jobs, but somebody who knew the decision maker was saying you need to know about mad. This guy is sharp. He loves teaching. He's ready to go. He's got the master's. He's qualified to teach. He's ready to go. We need to look at him as that happened.

"Does it make sense we have to remember just one year ago from Democratic Party? I don't speak for all Democrats, but I will say that President Obama had a supreme court nominee, Merrick garland for a long time and the Republicans delayed and delayed until they got to make their pick. And so. From my perspective. The Republicans aren't paying playing fareless and Asana transparent process and just quickly. I mean Senator Feinstein and her defense says look the confidentiality of a constituent here was the overriding concern, and that she couldn't ask for investigation or turn it over to anyone else without betraying. Then a week before they're supposed to have the hearings at this confidentiality then. Well, so. John you who's a Bush member of the Bush close person has said, there's no reason why they can't do an investigation that should be the bottom line. I I would say she should be heard. He should be heard if evidence or testimony comes up then goes to the next step. You can stop look exactly what she said. She has not talked to the staff about this matter when they wanted to interview her in closed door session, or she is not talked to the senators says, let letter be heard if this is credible and other witnesses come forward, the Senate second of all I look at the the burden of responsibility. A proof of innocence is on cavenaugh. It isn't it isn't on Christine four. I this is the same reason that there was a need to movement in the first place women were not believed. And so we should be in two thousand eighteen operating from a different point of view. Trump's recent tweet saying, hey, if it was that bad, you should have gone. The FBI shows the attitude of hasn't changed hasn't changed. It's ridiculous to say that about a fifteen year old girl at her. Traumatic circumstance right? We we do have to move on clearly a lot more to discuss on this. And I'm sure this will carry into next week. We may have y'all backstop next week. But in the meantime, let's move onto the congressional races the midterms because of course, you know, hanging over all of this the cavenaugh confirmation hearing are the midterm elections. Republicans were hoping to get a wrapped up as soon as possible before the elections, and we have Democrats now trying to flip Twenty-three congressional houses. Seven of those are in California, Kita key battleground state here, Amy what is happening in those races. They're becoming pretty tight very tight. Let's look at congressional district. Thirty nine races that seat redistricting. Has has redistricting has made the population shift at sixty eight percent, people of color thirty percent Asian Pacific islander, and the reason I point that out is because across the country and in California's primaries there have been these late surges pollsters and establish when people have been surprised by those who made it through primaries without establishments report. In fact, one of three of the nominees that are going to be on the November. Ballot are women of color people who came through without Democratic Party. Blessing. But what's happening in Orange County is sort of a similar kind of situation where we have a heavily people of color population. And so it's all going to be about turnout and pollsters right now are saying, well, it's slightly Republican advantage. But they're not looking at the incredible growth of women and women of color in that district alone. I think that's going to be the x factor. And I think they're not counting at the heart of the Reagan revolution. Remember, I I was with Gavin Newsom traveling on his bus this week in that in Orange County and to see the turnout of women at these events. It was pretty impressive many of them said the first time they had ever been involved. Politically was at the women's March many were women of color as you said. So it's gonna be interesting to see did they actually come out and vote, but you're seeing signs that. Yes. The energy is they're down there. And we may be in for a very big shift in Orange County. Sean what those? Tight Republican racist. Do you think there's enough momentum on the democratic side for a Blue Wave? I think the actual cavenaugh. Process now has had a negative impact on those races. I think that Republicans are getting more solidified in thinking there's raw politics being played in here. And it may raise the number Republicans to turn out. I think you're absolutely right. Yeah. Young Kim is a woman of color Asian woman. And I think she's going to do very well in that district. I think all said and done across the entire country. The race probably comes down to whether African American women come out in large numbers. Right. We all rested their Sean wash political consultants with Wilson, Walsh, AB Allison with democracy and color and Carla Marinucci with political. Thank you all. Thank you. Turning now to education. A new research projects reveals big achievement gaps by race income and ethnicity among California's six million school children among the findings the achievement gap starts as early as kindergarten and while student test scores are improving fourth and eighth grade students still performed below the national average in reading and math equity is also a problem with black and Latino students having worse academic outcomes, then their white and Asian peers joining me now to discuss the findings are Heather huff, executive director of policy analysis for California education, and one of the researchers who contributed to the report called getting down to fax to and also San Francisco Chronicle education reporter chill, Tucker. Welcome to you both. Thank you. So Heather one of the most troubling findings. And your study was that the treatment gap begins even before kiss enter kindergarten. How is that? So let's say great question in this set of studies. We wanted to find out where. Where the achievement gap was happening, and who it was affecting most. So we've known for a long time that we have gaps in fourth and eighth grade. And that we have those by race income lines by language status to what this paper and the set of studies contributed is that we can see those gaps before students even set foot in school contributes to that well to a large degree, it's a fragmented early childhood system, a fragmented and underfunded system that some say isn't a system at all children have super varied access to early childhood learning opportunities. And so when they start their on different footing based on their characteristics and coming into school in terms of the quality childcare, they get or preschool education. What are some of the things that are part of this patchwork quilt that you pointed out, I think any parent who has a child this age knows that right now in our state childcare is very expensive. And also the quality of childcare is not highly regulated. Across the state. So a lot of kids their parents can't afford to put them into child care at all. And of the kids that are in early childhood early early, childhood care or training or education. There's a lot of variation in terms of what they get from an educational perspective. And there's also a lot of variation in terms of the teachers that are in those positions serving them, it's not a high wage possession. And there's not a lot of regulation around training. What I think was so interesting about that aspect of this study, which encompassed so much. But the one thing that I thought was really interesting about the that information about children coming into kindergarten behind was that once they got into kindergarten, California schools and the children kept pace with other states across the country, which means if they could actually start kindergarten on equal footing. Our schools are keeping pace in terms of teaching them once they get there. So it gives sort of this really narrowed zone of where to focus some of our efforts. If we could get them into kindergarten at the same level as their peers across the country. They're gonna keep up. So then what needs to happen to close that gap prior to kindergarten? We'll funding alone be the difference. Well, I think as Heather said there's there's a variety of issues with that it's access it's quality. And and so many in the state have been calling for your universe. Preschool for many many years, which would allow more controls over over that system. So far, we haven't been able to we've made baby steps in that we have transitional kindergarten now, we certainly have some preschool programs for low income families. But it is a bit of a patchwork right now, it's not universal for all families and all children to sort of get us to that start lying at the same place and funding alone is never enough. We've shown across all of the thirty six studies that we do need more money in our system, but we know from decades of education research that if you put money into the system other things need to be in place to make sure that money is well spent and it's the same with this early childhood situation, we need to make sure that we have good data system. So that we can understand the services that thing our youngest children are receiving and how that's affecting their outcomes. We also need to train those early childhood teachers, very well. So that all kids are getting that high quality instruction, and then make sure that everyone gets a place in a classroom. There is this achievement gap at once. Get into the California Public school system. We are able to help them close that gap. But is it enough for them to completely catch up that is to be on par with students in other states or do they start so far behind that? They never really quite catch up. Now, they are not able to catch up and in most situations, so because of that gap and how big it is on day. One our schools are doing better than schools and other states, actually at closing it. But they're not able to accelerate it to completely close the gap. And so what we see in California is that our most fluent students are achieving compared to the highest levels and other states. But it's our low income are black Latino students are English language learners at aren't getting served in a way that we'd like in your research team says that California used to be a leader in early school education. But now has fallen behind other states, how did this happen? That's a great question. One of the things that that's why we've kind of tried to step back and think about the. Entire system and why we looked at pre K through twelve education because all of these pieces are related, and what we've seen is that there's been a huge emphasis on K twelve education in the past. I mean decades, and that we have made some really vast improvements in this area around funding around support changes the accountability system. And so not only do we still need improvements in K twelve but this early childhood piece. It's just hasn't been attended to in the same way that others have. And jill. Funding alone, cans, fix everything. But you would think that some of these problems would have been mitigated because California has put in place finance reforms aimed at improving public education the status when allocating more money for school since two thousand five shall local control funding formula that lets local districts determine how to spend state money that's best serves their students..

So let's a great question. And this set of studies we wanted to find out where. Where the achievement gap with happening, and who it was affecting most. So we've known for a long time that we have gaps in fourth and eighth grade. And we have those by race income lines by language status. But what this paper and the set of studies contributed is that we can see those gaps before students even set foot in school. Contributes to that. Well to a large degree, it's a fragmented early childhood system a fragmented and under funded system that some say isn't a system at all children have super varied access to early childhood learning opportunities. And so when they start their on different footing based on their characteristics at coming into school in terms of the quality childcare, they get or preschool education. What are some of the things that are part of this patchwork quilt that you pointed out, I think any parent who has a child this age knows that right now in our state childcare is very expensive. And also the quality of childcare is not highly regulated across the state. So a lot of kids their parents can't afford to put them into child care at all. And of the kids that are in early childhood early early, childhood care or training or education. There's a lot of variation in terms of what they get from an educational perspective. And there's also a lot of. Variation in terms of the teachers that are in those positions serving them, it's not a high wage possession. And there's not a lot of regulation around training. I think was so interesting about that aspect of this study, which encompassed so much. But the one thing that I thought was really interesting about the that information about children coming into kindergarten behind was that once they got into kindergarten, California schools and the children kept pace with other states across the country, which means if they could actually start kindergarten on equal footing. Our schools are keeping pace in terms of teaching them once they get there. So it gives sort of this really narrowed zone of where to focus some of our efforts. If we could get them into kindergarten at the same level as their peers across the country. They're going to keep up. So then what needs to happen to close that gap prior to kindergarten will funding alone be the difference. Well, I think as Heather said there's there's a variety of issues with that it's access it's quality. And and so many in the state have been calling for universal. Purcell preschool for many many years, which would allow more controls over over that system. So far, we haven't been able to we've made baby steps in that we have transitional kindergarten now, we certainly have some preschool programs for low income families. But it is a bit of a patchwork right now, it's not universal for all families and children to sort of get us to that start line at at the same place and funding alone is never enough. We've shown across all of the thirty six studies that we do need more money in our system, but we know from decades of education research that if you put money into the system other things need to be in place to make sure that money's well spent and it's the same with this early childhood situation, we need to make sure that we have good data system. So that we can understand the services that our youngest children are receiving and how that's affecting their outcomes. We also need to train those early childhood teachers, very well. So that all kids are getting that. High quality instruction and make sure that everyone gets a place in a classroom. There is this achievement gap. But once they get into the California Public school system. We are able to help them close that gap. But is it enough for them to completely catch up that is to be on par with students in other states or do they start so far behind that? They never really quite catch up. Now, they are not able to catch up and in most situations, so because of that gap and how big it is on day. One our schools are doing better than schools and other states, actually at closing it. But they're not able to accelerate it to completely close the gap. And so what we see in California that are most affluent students are achieving compared to the highest levels and other states, but it's our low income are black Latino students are English language learners that aren't getting served in a way that we'd like in your research team says that California used to be a leader in early school education. But now has fallen behind other states. How did this? Happen. That's a great question. And one of the things that that's why we've kind of tried to step back and think about the entire system and why we looked at pre K through twelve education because all of these pieces are related, and what we've seen is that there's been a huge emphasis on K twelve education in the past decades. And that we have made some really vast improvements in this area around funding around support changes the accountability system. And so not only do we still need improvements in K twelve but this early childhood piece. It's just hasn't been attended to the same way that others have. And jill. You know, funding alone cans, fix everything. But you would think that some of these problems would have been mitigated because California has put in place finance reforms aimed at improving public education the status when allocating more money for school since two thousand five there's a local control funding formula that lets local districts determine how spent state money that's best serves their students. So why haven't we seen more.

"A warming and drying trend begins today over the bay area. And it will continue into tomorrow is on shore flow is weakening gusty northerly winds in the higher elevations though will result in enhanced fire weather concerns from tonight into tomorrow morning, primarily in the hills of eastern Napa county sunny skies today when I've is from the upper sixties to the upper eighties. It's nine zero six from K Q E D public media this forum. I'm Queen Kim. In for Michael Krasny. We're going to dig into public education and a new study that finds among other things that California Public school students score well below the national average in reading and math and fall behind before they even enter kindergarten. That's according to getting down to fax project. It's a wide ranging study by Stanford and the policy analysis for California, education or pace. The study also found that while overall student performance has improved over the last decade. The state has made only limit. Progress in closing the achievement gaps for black Latino and low income students. We'll talk about the challenges facing California schools, and it's early education programs, and what can be done to improve them. But before we get to the researchers who authored many of these studies I wanted to bring on John fenced or walled. He is the editor at large of Ed source. That's an independent nonprofit research and reporting organization. Welcome to forum. John pleasure to be here. So in your own words, this study is a massive collection of studies. There's thirty six over all told one hundred authors before you drill into some of the findings. Can you give a sort of a twenty thousand foot view of what these studies were supposed to accomplish? And why releasing it now? Yeah. Getting down the fact to and because it was getting down the fact one in ten years ago. It was commissioned by governor Schwarzenegger. So it's been ten years and have been out tremendous number sweeping changes since then, you know, we have new academic standards. We have new accountability system local control funding formula, which targets more money to low income students in English learners and new academic standards as well. So this is sort of a pillow change to Brown's leaving after eight years, Mike curse to you're going to have on state board president they have had a tremendous impact on education. So now, we have a new administration. I think part of this was to provide the research face to inform the new governor and a new state superintendent of public instruction. And in a way, the first one is supposed to create a little bit of a roadmap for policy makers, this one sort of assesses how some of those stuff that that was implemented worked what were some of the top. Line findings that were most interesting to you. What are the things? I wanted to do was basically to talk to educators who are charged with implementing all these things and say, well, how's it going? Are we headed in the right direction doing bunch of surveys? And the result was yes of the course, we like the new standards we like the local control funding formula and the flexibility that we have and then tremendous obstacles still a lot of work to be done much of it's still in the formative stages, and as you said, there's still a tremendous achieve achievement gap between California students and their tears nationwide and also in California among ethnic, and no income and wealthy students. And as you mentioned the key finding to me was that this chief me Gat actually starts on the first day kindergarten. Sean. Mm Stanford University found it, and basically it implies that we need to focus on preschool and early Ed which has not been a priority of governor Brown is an aim is famous to fund the local twelve funding formula, which was K through twelve. And so I think there's going to be momentum for that. And Sean Reardon study underscores the need for that. And then another priority, which has certainly not been a priority under governor Brown is a need for better data systems that complaint came loud and clear out these studies, even many of the researchers were saying, we don't have a good data system that connects preschool through college and provides a kind of information that schools and districts need to improve which is the goal of the local control funding for we just don't have it. We couldn't even do much of our research because we couldn't get the data that we need. Yeah. Let's stay on that for a second. You know, I'm sitting here in San Francisco and the hardest Silicon Valley where data is the. A big topic collecting it correlating it. It's a little confounding to me that this is a problem in our state. It seems like we have the resources to deal with this is one of the it was one of the points raising getting down in fact, one ten years ago. And I it just hasn't been a priority of of governor Brown. He he in fact, would argue that comparisons are odious, and there's too many of them and focus needs to be at a local district level. That's his philosophy. But the districts are saying, hey, we need to know what's working elsewhere. We need to have the kind of data that will help us improve. And I, and that's one of the things I think we'll draw attention out of this report. So, of course, there's money. Yes. I was going to get to that. So all this stuff takes money funding, pre k education bringing better data systems. So we can track the data better. No surprise that. The report says that for the education system to work the way, we intended to bring students up to state economic standards. They're suggesting. K twelve funding increased by thirty two percent or two twenty two billion dollars. There are also criticisms or critiques, I guess that principals with the lease experience our society, the lowest cheating schools, and with all due respect to the researchers a lot of this is really familiar not a lot of big surprises a lot of perennial problems. What is your feeling about? This report actually starting to move the needle and getting some of this stuff fixed. Well, as a as I said, I think Sean rude finding that we really need to focus on early education as a lot of bang for the buck. So to speak out of that data has been ignored. That's key. And what she said in terms of getting the most skilled teacher skilled leaders, and and teachers in the schools that need it most. That's really not a money issue per se. We have a teacher shortage we need to address. But that's an adult problem. How to do that? That's not more money won't. Solve that problem. There is a need for more money in a number of areas. We're not spending enough one mental health cer- kids, and the teachers fat, you know, if we want to really bring adequacy adequate education, we need to have perhaps a longer day or more attention to low income students they need a lower. We don't have enough adults in our classes, we need a smaller ratio of students to teachers and this will be expensive. The thirty two percent that you mentioned what they did was they asked to panel of experienced educators, basically to come up in three three days, and they said in order to fund schools adequately based on the standards that California has adopted and its goals all students would be prepared for college and careers, how much money do you think this would take that was the question that they were asked when they came up with the twenty two billion dollars on top of a sixty nine billion that we spent. Two years ago. And I know these funding things are difficult, but that twenty two billion dollars into the average is what is that per student that we're talking about I believe it would raise it from about twelve thousand five hundred to around sixteen thousand eight hundred somewhere in that vicinity. That's what the thirty two percent. But that's average. Then what they're saying. Is that in order to target to really bring achievement for low income students. They're going to require more and those students who are well off and those districts in fact, closer to adequacy they will get less of an increase. I'm gonna ask you a final question. Can you give us a little silver lining here? What's what some of the good news out of this report? Well, the good news. I think for starters, I said as educators who are charged with implementing they really think we're on the right direction and get in there and courage given time and some help they can make progress is that a new feeling I'm curious that the educators are hopeful with this new plan because you know, I used to be a teacher, and I think the general sentiment. I always felt was the state goes one way. And then it goes the other and there's a little bit of flip flopping always a little cynicism. Do you think that's changed that that the state there's a consensus now among teachers and educators at the state is on the right track? Now, I think if anything is a plea not to not to flip flop and nothing make a big change. The course for a while because they're happy with the standards, and they think that with help from the state, and there's a question whether or not the state agencies are up to the task, but they can bring the kind of improvement. That's envisioned. In the formula. The other thing that's positive is that there are signs their studies that in fact increase in resources will help there was a study by record Johnson of of UC Berkeley that that says. Yeah. Gets devoting more money, particularly to low income students can lead to some progress. And also, Sean Reardon found that in fact, California students over the past decade were improving slightly faster than peers around the country in reading not enough to close the gap. But that's a hopeful sign. So the needle is moving. That's John fencer, Walt. He is the editor of large at Ed source. That's a nonprofit reporting organization. Thanks so much for coming with the show. John. Thank you. All right. So let's drill into some of these studies. We've got on the phone with us now. Mike accursed, president of the state board of education. Welcome to forum. Mike pleasure to be here. Also, joining us on the line is steady speed. I'm sorry. Stipetic? She's a former dean of Stanford graduate school of education and a professor who authored the studies looking into early childhood education. Welcome to forum Dera good to be here. Thank you, Mike. I'm going to start with you. Because I I actually you're gonna stay with us for the whole hour. I thought you can leave, but I might as well start with you because in two thousand thirteen you and governor Brown championed a change in the school funding formula that gives more control over spending to the schools that change actually came out of getting down to facts study one that was in two thousand and seven can you give us a really quick explainer of what those changes meant for schools without getting too wonky. I know that's a big task. But yes, well, the prior system was just so complex that only about ten people in Sacramento understood it, and it was very controlled by the state. There were some are around forty categorically earmarked programs. So there was not a lot of local control. And moreover, it was not targeted to district have taste the biggest challenges with low income students English learners and so on. So it was I think pretty much a complete mess. So we through the whole thing out in many ways and came in with targets for each school district, which have raised expenditures dramatically over the period of Cincinnati to thirty two thousand thirteen and two thousand eighteen and a formulas pretty simple, you get a base amount each, and then you get more money, if you have low income students more money, if you have English learners who are not low income more money, if you get up you have foster care pupils and in districts that have over fifty five percent concentration of these kinds of of pupils that have particular needs. You're in. Increase in expenditure per pupil goes up by forty to fifty percent. So it has targeted the money, and then regulated the system so that the state's guiding out of telling them how to spend their money, but we have come up with an entirely new data system called a data dashboard, which is like your car dashboard, where we have five statewide indicators of outcomes everything from chronic absence to.

Least funny human being who is considered a comedian on national television well Trevor no I had. Some nasty things to say about, the Catholic church Trevor Noah is on comedy central and he decides to go after the. Catholic church now the reason this is. Bad is not, because everybody is in Torah five at the latest. Stories talked about it, yesterday, on the podcast the latest stories about what's going, on. Inside the Catholic church the cover-ups inside the Catholic church, there's a story in Pennsylvania three. Hundred priests were basically covered up for. By the archdiocese in Pennsylvania a thousand kids who are abused minimum it. Really horrifying horrifying stuff but as I said on my podcast yesterday. A couple of days ago it is deeply. Important to recognize that institutions that deal with children routinely have, problems with this and, they, routinely, covered things up, and that's not, an, excuse for the. Catholic. Church, in any way but it, is to, suggested singling out the Catholic church as uniquely evil in this way is being intellectually Tucson Hey can you can say the treatment here is evil. Their, treatment, of, the the priest is evil the treatment of the kids evil. You can say all of that, because Catholics will agree with you every Catholic saw. This, thing was sick to their stomach over the past week there's not a single Catholic in America or anywhere around the world he saw, this story these priests were treated who didn't feel sick to, their stomach and if you're a. Religious person of any stripe. You should feel sick to your stomach that any religious institution would cover. Up for that but listen to what. Trevor Noah has to say. About it because this is a bridge further than that and this is, why people in sort of mainstream America people who believe in God people who are religious feel that the media are coming after them hammer and tongs and are just waiting for an opportunity to. Stab us in the eye just in Pennsylvania we're not even counting the rest of America and Europe and Africa And I'm sorry guys, at some point, we need to stop calling it a church and start calling it what. It is a, molesting club with an opening prayer because that's what it feels like I. Said amazing state right the Catholic church, is now molesting club with an opening prayer so question for Trevor no he works in Hollywood Hollywood not quite known for its shall we say sexual limits A Hollywood Roman, Polanski, wins an Oscar after raping? A fourteen. Year, old girl Hollywood where, Woody Allen is still working Hollywood we're. Harvey Weinstein worked for years and years and, years side by side with people like Trevor no how many people does Trevor no one no who've actually. Abused people my guess is more than, a, few he may not know about the specific abuse. But I promise you there are lots? Of people in. Hollywood who do sexual abuse in Hollywood is rampant does he have you ever heard Trevor Noah say anything like Hollywood. Is molestation factory without prayer have you ever heard anything like that of course not how. About the public schools when you ever hear anybody on the left talk about sexual abuse. Inside the, public schools, there's? An Associated Press report from may two thousand seventeen it found. Seventeen thousand official reports. Official, reports of sex assaults on, students from fall twenty eleven, to spring two, thousand fifteen It's amazing seventeen thousand official reports we're talking Pennsylvania about one. Thousand reports over the course of thirty years here you're talking about in the public schools Seventeen thousand official reports of sex assaults on students. In four years alone according to hostile university researcher Cheryl shake shaft who performed a study. For the department of education in two thousand to the physical. Sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than one, hundred times abused by priests a federal report found four hundred and. Twenty two, thousand California Public school. Students would be victimized by sexual abuse before graduation which was every time more than the entire California Catholic school enrollment And. A survey from the American Association of university women and found that one in ten students from eighth, to eleventh grade said they'd been subjected sexual comments pornography or sexual contact from a teacher or school. Employees which would be four point five million students across America between kindergarten and twelfth grade. Who suffered sexual abuse by educator have you ever heard anybody. On the left to talk about any of that stuff of, course not even when the media reported it's relegated to secondary status Which is one of the reasons why we covered it right but did you cover it with the same sort of Lakrodi and anger that. You cover abuse in the Catholic. Church if the answer. Is. No I, have to assume the reason you're covering the Catholic church differently then you cover the sanctify public schools. Is because you, like the public schools the, Catholic church that is the rationale and it feels like every day, there's a new assault from the, left unfunded mental values and the New York Times is constantly promoting a certain agenda with regard to key values that we all hold dear values like mothers and fathers I have to go through this there's a great editorial great I mean it's, just awful freaking garbage over the New York Times by, by a guy named Kevin noble Mailer here's a professor I believe at Syracuse university and he is working on a.
