Virtual Classes Prove Challenging For Adult English Learners In Washington D.C.
"A D. C school for adult English learners had to suddenly shift their students, all of them immigrants to virtual learning when the pandemic started, and it took some creativity to figure it all out. About a year ago, all 2000 students at the Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School had to start learning English online. Though pro much innovation using cell phones using what's APP CEO Alison Kokoro said They didn't found a solution. A $372,000 grant through the D. C. Equity fund helped them provide laptops to all of their students, and they taught them how to work them in the parking lot of the school what we just needed to do with reinvent what it looked like for us to serve them.

The Difference Between Classical Liberals and Libertarians
"What do you feel are the differences between classical liberals and libertarians. I get this question. Probably more than it's like top three when i do live. Event only did one life event last year but i will announce something a woman in essence. I would always say the simple version of this because usually when most people listening. If you're not familiar with all the terms you go libertarian. He believes in individual rights. He wants lower taxes government. Out of the way i would say the true libertarians. What i love going libertarian events. I love talking to libertarians and it always gets whittled down to. Should we have driver's licenses. Should we legalize math. And a whole bunch of other stuff and there's great intellectual exercise there and by the way you can take the libertarian thing. Really down that far road and ended up as an an cap. And you know michael malice. Why call the willy. Wonka politics is one of my favorite guests. A good buddy of mine. And i love having that philosophical debate. I think classical liberalism gives just enough like the lightest touch of government possible to allow the markets to work to allow people to be free to allow states to have rights to allow all of us to be treated equally all of those things. So you know one of the things that used to say. I used to say and this one's starting to change. Which is that the. The state has a role in public education. I went to public schools. My entire life including college and i got a good a pretty good education. I'd like to think but now if you're going to be infected by the ideas of critical race theory and everything else then should the state of any right in that and by the way that the state delivered hearings basically want that they want as much school choice as possible. you know. there's this new idea. And i had corey danjus and a couple of other people on my show on the panel on friday where we talked about this. The idea of funding students not systems. Because obviously we know that the teachers unions are too powerful. So the idea is you would give x amount to the student. And then they could figure out what school they wanna go to. We could do more charter schools and everything else

Enrollment Continues to Increase at New York City Charter Schools
"Enrollment at New York City's charter schools has increased during the pandemic. W on my CI's Jessica Gould reports. Overall charter enrollment grew by about 10,000 students this school year. The increase was especially high for white and Asian students. And for those learning English enrollment, and Chartres has been trending upward for awhile. It increased by 10,000 students last year, too. Meanwhile, enrollment in city run schools has been decreasing in recent years. Although the decline this fall was steeper, with 43,000 fewer students, charters continue to serve a relatively small slice of New York City's families with less than 170,000 students total compared to the 960,000 in the city's public school system.
More Sheep than You Can Count: Transfinite Cardinal Numbers
"What are we talking about today. We're talking about cardinal. Infinity is obviously yes now. You you said infinity's the i love the title. If i may real quick the title of the show is more sheep than you can count obviously. That's an allusion to infinity. I love it a fantastic and the reason why we chose that is because there are sets of things collections of things that cannot be counted and And i mean there's a very real sense like not even all the real numbers right like not real numbers. All natural numbers right one two three four five et cetera. You can count all of them. Theoretically they are called countable because you can put them all in a list that has the first item at the first place the second item at the second place on and on and cover all of them. There are some sets. You cannot do that. With and one of those sets is the set of real numbers. And we'll show why on here but basically you cannot. You cannot list all the real numbers in any way shape or form. You will always leave things out any list no matter if it's infinitely long the really nuanced facts about infinity and that will we've we've realized in the field of mathematics and the last two hundred years one thing. I love about this episode. Though is i got especially interested in this topic when i taught sixth grade math. And what's cool is we're going to get into this in a little while but we had to do these socratic seminars. At the school. I taught out it was a charter. School and the kids started exploring infinity completely on their own and they had these group discussions that got into this and what i found a wonderful is there are. There's absolute overlap between some of their discussions. Like i think one of the topics that was brought up was does a circle. Have the same amount of points as a sphere and yes. I kid you not that we had sixth-graders talking about this socratic discussion. Not not everything was maybe correct in that discussion but most touches on the kind of cardinal anthony that we're gonna talk about today for example the answer to the question of does a circle have the same amount of points. A sphere surprisingly is yes and we will find out why.
This entire second-grade Washington D.C. class fell behind in reading. Now what?
"Kept classrooms closed but bars open. Europe kept their schools open despite a second wave but they did close their bars. The result is that they've gotten the spread under control far better than we have. It's been relatively safe to have their schools open as long as they adhere to a now establish set of precautions. Mask wearing handwashing ventilation. Schools are thought to have played only a limited role in accelerating coronavirus transmission on the continent. Those conclusions contrast sharply with the prevailing wisdom. Here were public. Health officials have focused on low rates of positive tests in the broader community as a prerequisite for in person schooling and. There's mounting evidence that this is taking a toll on our children. Our education writer perry stein has been following kids at eight public charter school. Elementary campus here in dc in southeast the poorest parts of town in march ninety percent of the school's first graders hit their reading targets then when the pandemic hit and schools abruptly closed. Teacher sent the children home with academic packets. The school remained closed but the packets kept coming. First graders became second graders. The six year olds became seven-year-olds. This fall individual reading. Assessments administered in person highlighted the cost of trying to learn during the pandemic. all forty. Five second graders at this charter. School fell behind all forty five of them. Not a single students started this academic year reading on grade level. It was far worse than a typical summer learning drop. Some kids are reading at an early. First grade level others slipped back to kindergarten or preschool levels. The one hundred eighty three students in kindergarten through third grade at achievement prep are among the kids that education leaders fear will fare the worst from prolonged closures. Ninety seven percent of the kids at this charter school or black. Seventy percent of families the qualify for public assistance thirteen percent or homeless. These students already fell on the wrong side of the achievement. Gap and now. They're falling far behind
Why remote learning worsens education inequality
"Education has gone online but not all education is proving to be equal according to the new york times. One analysis from the spring found that the move to online learning puts the average kid about seven spiked but the average student nine months behind the average black student ten months behind but are some schools. That are doing better. Some schools are adapting to help make remote learning better for kids and for teachers to shrink that gap. So how are they doing it. And a north is a senior reporter. Here in vox. Who's been covering this story. So you've got a piece about the difficulties of online learning and what we can do to make things better for students. You told us about one school in the bronx walked me into that school. What's it like. Yes so i talked to folks at com site high school. It is a charter school at part of the earth the network of charter schools but as a public school located in the bronx. It's a school that high poverty area about eighty four percents of the student body qualifies for free or reduced price lunch. It's also a school that's majority. Non white majority latin accent block student body. And you know it's in a part of the city that was really hard hit. You know really suffered a lot especially in the spring with covid nineteen. This was a place where a lot of kids had family members that were ill a lot of kids family members who lost jobs. It's definitely been one of the parts of the country. That's really been struggling. And what sort of technology are they. Using a kossi to teach during the pandemic every school uses different things. I mean there's been sort of a variation across the country in terms of what schools us but in a way it's not like that different. I think what You know what varies more across. Schools is the way they use technology and not so much. The tech itself is like you know they use google hangouts. They zoom combination of tools. That you'll find a lot of schools using but i think the difference Sometimes comes down to how the instructors are using it. Got it okay and tell me what were of the big issues with online learning there that made it harder to reach underrepresented groups. Yeah i mean again like a lot of these things. Just start like before the kids ever get online. I mean you know it's some pretty big percentage of kids in the city kids across the country. Don't have wifi in their home. They may not have a device. You know maybe they have a phone where they can get online but they might not have certainly their own laptop live in family with multiple kids. It's not like every kid necessarily has their own laptop and they might not have You know a quiet place to go study so if you live in a small apartment in new york city you don't have like a dedicated desk area for every kid to do remote learning so these are all things that are big barriers even before you talk about like is the interface working while for kids right like do they understand how to use. Google hangouts things like that. Do any guess about how many kids in general at least in america don't have access to the stuff yes so it looks like as a twenty nineteen seventeen percent of students across the country lacked. A computer at home in eighteen percent didn't have broadband internet. It's about one in five one. Five students and low income students and students of color are more likely to lack those things. Okay so you found a couple of ways in which this one high school in the bronx is doing things better when it comes to. Maybe not introducing new fancy gadgets but to use technology and to use to improve online learning. Tell me like what sort of things by doing. And is there any reason. Why every scorn. America this stuff. Yeah so i mean again. It's just really really basic stuff so but basic stuff can be the hardest stuff right totally. Yeah and it's something that frankly like a lot of schools and a lot of districts aren't doing for their kids and so we're talking about making sure that the kids are online so the school actually made available wifi hotspots. That families could pick up and like even before you talk about that. This school also made sure that the kids had food and you know even did a go fund me to help with some some other costs that the kids families facing associated with the pandemic so that may not seem like a tech problem. But if you don't have food in your house like you're not going to be able to log on and do your classes. There's also there's a few things that teachers educators really finding that. They're having to adapt the way that they do their classes. You one teacher told me. I thought this was really interesting. He said i relied really heavily on my presence in his teaching like he may be was very funny and just like very animated and he was able to really work the room and he can't do that over zoom. He's not in the room so he described kind of trying to use the students as a resource a little bit more. Try to bring in their expertise at one point. He had them like name all their favorite superheroes and villains than he made that part of the lessons so like making it a little bit less about him and a little bit more about them. If and that's just one example. But i think just constantly checking in with kids. This is something that every school. I talked to really mentioned is just that you know. It's a time when everyone's isolated when if they're not coming into school buildings building those relationships in any way you can is super important and so you know. I'm hearing a lot about phone calls. I'm hearing a lot about like constant texting even advisors. Just saying link. Were you able do your homework. Do you have any questions everybody doing okay.

"Hey welcome to the podcast about politics race and culture from the OC perspective I'M A. And I'm Hutagalung arena. Today, we have a very special guest joining us from yonkers new. York is Jamal Bowman he's the. Democratic nominee for Congress in new. York's Sixteenth District Jamal. To the show. Hello thank you so much for having me. It's great to be here. We don't often speak to you know members, of Congress or potential members of Congress few like somebody maybe unexcited Cossio go. because. You're win like hers was a a really big deal. You defeated Longtime Democratic incumbent Eliot Engel in a huge landslide lead your the likely winner in the twenty twenty general election because you represent a very blue district. So it's really been a super big year for you. Your Primary Win came at the height of the conversation around justice for Black and Brown lives inequity the pandemic. With. It. So really your wind came kind of on the backs of all of that. So. Give us just a quick back story shore. So the back story I guess begins you know being raised by a single mom in the projects along with my three sisters. During the crack cocaine epidemic, which projects I gotTa know which projects Oh Easter projects one hundred, fifteen first avenue in Manhattan. WanNa raise on the. Upper East side East Harlem Section Manhattan went to public schools by entire life lived in the projects in rent stabilized apartments started teaching in nineteen ninety nine in the South Bronx in one of the poorest zip codes in the country, and you clearly can see the inequality the inequity in how wherever you go in a city state or country black and Brown people seem to be suffering more than everyone else. So growing up as a black man in America who has been a victim of police brutality. The first time I was beaten by police was eleven years old and notice I said the first time happen again, the a later on. IOS Eleven hanging out on the street with my friends and being rambunctious in boisterous in doing what kids do and I guess someone may have called the police because we were maybe too noisy a too rambunctious. and. The police came over and tried to live saw curtail us and tell us a comma down. You know we kind of push back in had a few words for them. Next thing I know like I'm being done up against the wall thrones Grou- face dragged all over the floor. In the back you know except Tra, and then we'll take into the precinct and US well to my mom about this later were taken to the precinct in a coma mom to come pick me up with a birth certificate because they didn't believe I was eleven am. makes. Me Think Tamir Rice as I say that out loud rain. She comes with a birth certificate picks me up and takes me home. Didn't explain to her what the charges were if any why they approached us to begin with, they just allow her to take me home in my mom and I didn't even think to you know press charges. Report anything like that. We just kept moving and it just tells you how internalize sort of our oppression is. Right like we just accept we have accepted in I have accepted that okay. There's nothing we can do where powerless. So becoming a teacher. Being a social justice advocate within education and having the opportunity to be a founding principle of my own district, public school charter school, and being education organizers around equity and restorative justice in culture, Responsi-, schools all of that led to me. You know think about a potential run for office and why Eliot Engel while I looked at twenty eighteen election and I saw that me thirty thousand registered Democrats in the district actually voted and he won with twenty two thousand votes. Yeah. Some like, wow. This person has making trillion dollar decisions that impact millions of people and he only got twenty two thousand. Volts Yep you look at who supports him right? Who Funds his campaign we're talking big real estate. Yep Big pharmaceutical companies, weapons, manufacturers, hedge fund managers, and every institution that is hurting our community hurting the working class. Those are the people that are institutions that funded his campaign. So that's why we decide the challenge chairman ultimately were able to win in the end

For-profit online schools are getting a second look from parents
"As you parents try to figure out the best remote schooling options enrollment in alternative online schools is skyrocketing. Some of these are for profit schools that get public money from states or public school districts for each student they enroll and they've actually been around for years. Jennifer King. Rice is a professor of education. At the University of Maryland who's studied for profit virtual schools she says, you shouldn't assume that having experience in remote learning means the school is better. The way they make money is that they have tend to have much higher student teacher ratios, and so they have fewer teachers available and they also I think the obvious thing is they save money on their facilities and you know what it costs to maintain physical school plant. What might student teacher ratio look like? Well, how big our class sizes they can get quite big the the main of you know across all virtual schools in a recent study that we did was about forty four students per teacher in a virtual school compared to about sixteen students per teacher. In the national average across the board in brick and mortar schools there is a lot of variation though. So you know this is not a one size fits all. There are some virtual schools who have student teacher ratios that are as high as twelve hundred students per teacher. Wow. Yes. I mean that sounds like college and that's K. through twelve school potentially that's a k through twelve school. So you know picture very large virtual classrooms where you know a teacher either has a prerecorded or I guess maybe in rare instances asynchronous lesson where you know twelve hundred students from home are engaging in that curriculum. And what do we know about outcomes I know with charter schools it's not always easy to measure or maybe there isn't a lot of oversight. Do we know whether these schools work? Well, it really depends on you know that the school and the arrangement with the school system. So you know there are some virtual schools that that deliver reasonable outcomes but this has been extremely uneven. Virtual schools have been highly under fire and you know increasingly there's been greater accountability for virtual school. By state legislatures in this study that we do every other year, we track legislation that's coming out around virtual education across the states, and in recent years, we've seen much more focus on accountability and trying to hold virtual schools to the same standards that we hold traditional brick and mortar public schools So I think that has been a struggle. This seems like a good option but in many cases, the test scores are really don't measure up. And and if I could just add that's just test scores. The outcome if we really think about the broad outcomes of public education, we should be thinking well beyond how students do on test scores to you know their their development as human beings, their ability to interact with other individuals who have different belief systems or who come from different backgrounds. So you know most of those interpersonal kinds of developmental achievements are not even accounted for. Is this a moment? Do you think given the pandemic and how many school districts are suddenly having to grapple with remote learning? Is this a moment when district's could learn though from what virtual schools have been doing or they could improve each other i? Think it absolutely is I. So I don't think we need to think about this. In fact, I don't think we can think about these issues as binary you know as all face to face or all virtual and I. Think you know The answer is very likely to be somewhere in the middle where we find the mechanisms that work the best using technology and leverage that technology to improve outcomes in in public schools. But if we go all virtual, we lose that interpersonal the soft skill development that we also very much care about. So you know the idea of using technology in ways that can individualize curriculum an individualized instruction that give students more choices about what electives they might be able to take and move at their own pace through that content. You know that's all very attractive and online curriculum can provide that freedom and flexibility and individualization. But online curriculum fall short when we're talking about all of these other kinds of outcomes they. In fact, they have fallen short to some extent even on the test score outcomes. But if we think about that whole range about comes that we have for K, twelve education in our country, you know we need. We need time together we need to be with students We need students to be with one another you know they're they're all the physical dimensions and the clubs and the CO curricular activities that are so important to having a holistic education.
Interview with Glory Edim
"Her second in policy, which we look forward to hearing more about welcome glory are you having me? Oh thank you so much for joining us in your kicking off our season two of the podcast series. So what a way to start the fall? Oh, this is incredible. I'm glad to be a guest I am a fan of your work. In addition to just enjoying the book itself, I'm a fan of what you've been able to accomplish with well red black girl particularly in the way of used the platform of of a literary network to intentionally highlight narratives that are often ignored or ones that disappear from her collective consciousness as to African descended womanhood, the beauty and diversity of our voices experiences I enjoy speaking to people like yourself and I often wonder how is this person get here? What was their journey like? Why do they do what they do? So you ready to get into it? Yes, I am. Act One call to adventure. As a writer entrepreneur, of course, there are paths that we take and processes that we engage in to get us to where we are today, and sometimes we do that. Emotionally, we have spiritual processes, intellectual ones, and so on. How did you become interested in doing the work you do today? Well, it was a long and Berry unexpected journey and I think it really started for me at Howard University by alumni really supported me feel seen in loves and space where black women aren't always valued our university boosted lifted me up. So it was there that I countered Zora Neil hurston and Tony Morrison and my Angelo, all incredible authors that allowed me to see myself more clear in allowed needs to really start to think about who I wasn't the world in the work that I wanted to do, and originally I majored in journalism and I minored in geology and I was always surrounded by just incredible people that motivated me whether it's my professors my best friends I just always had a beautiful reflection to someone saving mealy you can do this and whether it was reading pursuing journalism, I, always find courage is supported and I think that's the main takeaway from my spirit's is becoming not. Yet or do serve the festival and so many other names. It's having a support system being passionate and being able to identify what your vision is. Jahns I've been able to say without a doubt that my purpose to really be of service to other black women and help uplift them in a leary space yawns I gained so much joy from that. I didn't know that was what I was going to be doing when I was a freshman in college, but it just organically happened as I started pursuing my career. Network in meeting other people it just services evolved this beautiful way. So years later, we well red black girl but I know that seed was planted on campus our university I, like fat because and maybe this is just my own personal perspective of going to a Pwi a predominantly white institution that it's not to say that you don't have professors that encourage and cultivate you your skills, your interest but I wonder if if it's something about going to an HP, see you that it's like Hashtag black excellence all around and then you. Just really entrenched in that moment of Oh, you dig Tony Morrison to, and it's not like we have one week where we covered Tony Morrison then that's it. No, it's extends like it's like the whole life cycle like I think back when I was a freshman I taught at a school that was called the Maya Angelou Public Charter school and I don't think I could have done that anywhere else but in DC as a student at Howard University and those moments gave me again the sense of purpose of helping. Other children and working in space with other black students and working with black professors just around we twenty four, seven that I didn't have I didn't have a chance to second-guessed took away. Any doubt I had when I was at a randomly whites all as a high school student and then when I graduated I, just have the sense of I mean in.

And again, we're talking about a wind event we have Santa Anna's coming through here through Wednesday and those gusts can go up to sixty miles per hour Thursday night. When again, the first Ventura County fire emergency alert came through the winds were gusting so strong. You've got to consider you got power lines also vulnerable, and then that adds a new situation to everything and also consider that when you have this amount of wildfires inflamed. It creates its own weather patterns. So that's why there's so many unknowns. And we just funny we just had a briefing from Cal fire about how these Santa Anas are acting differently now where they lay down, and that's why they're taking up so many structures so much quicker because they don't it doesn't go upwards. So that it's almost as if the fire with Santa Anna's, they lay flat. So it goes across right? It's it's horizontal so it's really a challenge for firefighters. And you only have so much manpower. And I understand when homeowners want stay behind us guard hoses to wipe down the property. It's a great idea if you still have safe-space, but that safe space, I mean? I mean, it's so hard to determine when do you run when you're five minutes out from a fire taking over your your property or ten you don't know that also shelters evacuation shelters for those of you who don't have a place to go cameo community center off of Burnley street, if you're in the area, you know, where that is.

You you've lived here your whole life. You remember we did this Malibu fire saying before where it started on a Thursday or Friday, and then burned all the way to the coast over the weekend. It's like a. Vu situation, really really ugly. Some some sad story seminar. Do you remember the last time a fire went from the one oh one to Malibu took a couple of days? This took a couple of hours like a one eighteen to Malibu. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's really bad. Really we we blame her on the Santa Ana Winston conversion of fifty sixty seventy mile an hour. Wind gusts across the peaks of saying hero mountains of Santa Susanna, bounds blonde. All the stuff all the way down jumped across the one or one at liberty canyon last night. It's been just tearing through Malibu tonight. Really sad stories. You know, it's amazing. I was thinking about this last night that whatever little tiny flame started as whether it was a match or cigarette. Whatever that every single flame that we see on TV is related to that. One small little match. We're getting spotting which is really bad. You know, palm trees are like Roman candles Windsor. Blowing bad sparks are flying. I mean, they're blowing sparks to two miles ahead of the the flames of the fire, and that's what's causing these spot. Fires. We start and Bill canyon today. Four or five homes. Not just the product of a spot fire off the main body of the woozy fire. Just crazy. What do you think over the weekend? What are you looking at Windsor? I'm I don't wanna say settled down because that's not true. They're off their peaks of the day. The winds between four and six o'clock this morning when we have fifty sixty mile an hour winds, and they're not quite that strong. But they're still strong community of Malibu. In the city. The little town over the last three hours had fifty mile an hour gusts. The hills above Malibu forty one forty seven mile an hour winds in the Newhall pass Zuma thirty seven and Camarillo forty nine. So just technically less than before. However the forecast for overnight is going to settle down and by wake-up time tomorrow morning to win will be in the single digits and firefighters are going to have about a thirty six hour period. Jump on the wins. The humidity is still extremely low in the single digits. Santa Monica city had a relative humidity of three percent today. God. Yes. Right on the atmosphere. Literally devoid if moisture it's it's impossible to get your head around that. So the humidity is going to be low. It'll still be a fire danger. But wins are going to be cooperative for about thirty six hours and then around noon on Sunday and through Tuesday to Santa Anna Windsor had a pulse backup. They won't be a status they've been, but they're going to be thirty five forty miles an hour from the Tuesday periods.

The first alert radar network has the capability to track smoke. And so we'll put it out near a fire. And that helps us understand where the fire spreading the sickness of the smoke. And then we can warn people down wind about the game. Particularly matter, you know, the breathing and stuff.
