Should be no troubles getting around at this early morning. Our negotiations stalled yesterday between Chicago public schools and the teachers. Union Mayor Lori Lightfoot says that students will continue remote learning today but that teachers will be required to show up to the classroom. All teachers pre k through eight and cluster teachers must report. If you do not have a approved accommodation, we expect to see you back in class. CPS accuses the CTU of no showing negotiations, but the union counters they were told not to attend unless they were willing to make major concessions. CTU vice president Stacy Davis Gates says most parents don't want kids to come back to you in person learning The vast majority of the families that attended Chicago public schools have chosen remote learning. How do we make that better? Don't we make that work for families that needed to work? And quite frankly, how do you like those families out? Both sides have agreed on four of 10 critical issues. CPS is in person learning for pre K through eighth grade, which was set to begin today will now begin Tuesday. If you live in a residential street in Chicago, the streets and sanitation Department is asking you to be patient. Also, applause can clean your block. Here's Deputy Commissioner Coast Ellard.

"And I often say, Andre, this is this is my perspective. And maybe it Z my snow globe but the economy Rests on the education system because of Children are home. Parents can't work or they're paying extra to have their their Children put into different situations. S O Right. Cincinnati public another school district's moving towards a ah model of in school and eventually fully in school. Hopefully, we'll be able Tomo make A positive inroads in the sad situation. And lastly, there was some superintendents I save the text said to me how come Cincinnati public schools have a teacher's getting vaccinated? Going on now as we speak, But my teachers in my school district have fought through this thing since the end of August. We've not closed down. We've not gonna hybrid models and we're not prioritized because we're a suburban district. That is open. I had the governor on yesterday and he talked about you can't get the shots unless you agree to open. You Gotta open your schools. And so there's one superintendent said to me, we've been open for the last four or five months. We've fought through it. We've had to fill a lot of gaps in the teaching model. Wait. We have the get donations from from noted citizens in our community toe extra cost of the shielding that we have in place. We've changed the lunchroom. We've changed all this stuff. My teachers are not prioritized and we fought through it and CPS gave up to use his term. And now they get priority over us. How would you respond to that Superintendent Well, and I I also have a daughter with asthma. In a suburban district teaching five days a week. Who told me this morning, I get it, but I want one too. Okay, So, uh, we're honored and excited that we're leading the way and it wasn't You know, we're not in a position to weigh in when other districts get the vaccine, but I know one thing that weighed heavily in this. Is that we had the infrastructure in place. You know, we have the partnerships with Children's and the health department. We have nurses and every school we have over 32 health clinics and all of our schools. On and we were. We were in a position and ready to go. We also just received a grant for rapid tests for teachers and all of our schools s O You know, we're honored that you know, Governor DeWine gave us the the That scenes are a lot of the vaccines to our health department for our teachers, But hopefully we can follow up and make this a huge success. So that all these other districts quickly get this in place using our model. You know, it's not your fault. I mean, but some of the suburban district say what we did. We fought through it, and now we're being punished. But you bring up a great point that the school is not just educational center. It is the medical center. You have clinic set up and most of the schools in which nurses air physically present it's also restaurants. You take on the responsibility of feeding Children when I think the parents had to be responsible to feed their own Children and not put it on the backs of the taxpayer, and but nonetheless, the system we have now today, I don't blame a seven year old for not being fed, so therefore you have to feed him. It's a restaurant and medical care is not always provided. Well, so therefore the school becomes AH hospital or an emergency clinic. And that also is the education center and for psychological. Another medical services is the public school system, which is what it wasn't intended to be, but it's what it's become. When Melanie Bates, good luck to you, and I guess it starts today, and I'm I'm sorry on Mondays when school starts and unless we have some new variant, a new strain coming down the pike, God knows what's gonna happen next. That you pretend to be open. And you may extend into June and July, But Melanie Bates, Good luck to you. And thank you for coming on the Bill Cunningham show. Thank you. Well, thank you for having me Melanie Bates. Thank you very much. I let's continue with more. She's the leader down there because she's been there for 20. Some years when you think about the traditional role. Of our school. It's not a restaurant. It's up to Mom and dad to pack the lunch, you know and then, But now it's become the restaurant and as far as medical care, I used to go to Dr Elmore Sluiter, and now there's all these tax payer funded clinics in this goal. So, she said, When you look at an easy system to put needles in arms, CPS his position to do that, when other districts or not, I think the kids of Beachwood are probably not thinking about well. I got to go to school to have a meal. The parents take responsibility for that. So let's see. Let's get your reaction.

"It home. I just You know, it's interesting because the teachers within CTU who have existing preexisting conditions have been excused. They do not have to teach in the schools. I think what they're arguing for now, and we're trying to working to get a seat to you, Representative on this show coming up here. We're also going to talk to Paul Vallas, CEO of former CEO of Chicago Public schools, He's taking the side of parents and others here in the mayor, really, who want the schools to reopen. I think what they're looking at here, though, are the teachers that have someone at home. Who has an underlying condition. They're trying to get those excuse, and they say it's not safe for those folks to be in, but based on what you've seen in this data. With that? Does it concern you? I know that's a difficult question, but I'm gonna ask you anyway. You know, Listen, every week. This all goes back to risk tolerance, Right? What is your quote? Unquote risk tolerance? I think you know, I I my Children have, um, you know, in school learning and stuff, and you know, they wear their masks and they socially distance and you know, I think You have to weigh the risk, which it appears to be pretty, you know, at least significantly lower than say around the surrounding communities. Versus what's the harm right? What's the untold cost of cold in the developmental delay the problems that people have learning the problems that people who need special help the people that need food or rely on the meal program? I mean, this is not so difficulty and and there are so many issues, but you know, you try to wait things out, but I think you know, I believe that, you know, given the situation and given this data, I feel comfortable spending my Children to school if all of these medications Strategies are being implemented. You know, 100%, and they are the schools or at least those does certainly my kid's school. They're very very, you know, regimented, and that's the way you need to be. And you know, I I think I think you weigh your options. But yes, I think this data bodes well, at least that schools are not the big problem going forward. Yeah, I think you know, the other thing that has been pointed out is did they study where they large cities or were they more rural school districts or were they more was? Is there anything there that we might, you know? Look at to say, Well, this doesn't really compare apples to apples. Did you see anything like that? No, because you know they don't. It's not broken down and details like that. But that's right. These these are the questions you want to know. And then the other situation is, is this data It could be very skewed because then the other argument for having a statistics conversation is that well, the wait a second. You know, kids learn in school until this amount of time. And so maybe the numbers haven't caught up in this. That and the others like There are so many other potential extenuating factors that you know my change or skew the numbers or the data. But you know, just just as gross overall look the preliminary data that at least we're seeing is positive In terms of, you know, allaying people's fears A to least schools, kids and in transmission relative to the rest of the communities are large. Okay. Well, that helps a lot. Dr. Steve, you always do And I know that's a special appearance free today. I just asked you to come on, because when you see those headlines, it's not always easy to understand exactly what's in the study. And you read these things. I mean, you could make sense of the land center, The New England Journal of Medicine and he's I mean, they're often I try to print them out, and they're 100 pages long and it's like, Oh, my gosh. What I got to get Dr Steve. He's got to help me and so you know, Here you go. Thank you. My pleasure. I'm usually six or seven pages of his references anyway, So you know your due date.

"You you've got, but you also have let's take Children service workers who have to go in and check on things and houses. They have no idea whether somebody has there not and so All of them make a very credible cases. But what we're trying to do is it but the most firepower on where we can save the lives and that is people over 65 that's getting people who live in Congress care setting for their group in together, those the people that we prioritize plus getting kids back in school, plus our health workers. Well, you know, he also brought up the fact the media says. I don't know if it's true that about the half the doses that have been distributed are actually in the arms and many want to say Does Ohio have hundreds of thousands of doses and Fraser's No. No, we have what we have physically got in Ohio a zoo of last Sunday way do the tracking. Not We do the math on Sunday because we start getting vaccine on Monday. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. So if you wait till Sunday, then you know you're counting what's come in, and you haven't had a chance to get all of those out. But it gives you kind of a good idea. As of last Sunday, we were in about 85%. And so some of that hadn't even been recorded. People got shot today before and some people are getting shots that day. So Uh, you know, these numbers are kind of strange. We ply war ties nursing home because that's what we've seen 54% of deaths in Ohio come in nursing homes and because we have so many nursing homes. Large large numbers, So we got to protect the people in nursing homes. And when you do that, you have to set not only aside the ones you're using that week, so government requires to set 350,000 doses aside. And so you know, we're drawing down from those doses. Now, now on our second round going through the nursing home, So, um people either we keep I keep watching the nightly news of the morning news and and it's interesting to me when we You know, if you hear people say, Well, we ran out of vaccine. Well, yeah, well, Percy ran out back so they'll give us so much you your question, And it's not another word. You want to run out of vaccine because you want to get every every every 11 of those shots that you got in arms just as quick as we can. So every week. Our goal is to run through. You know everything that we've, We've got it and and we've got hospitals or working hard at this. We've got health departments who are doing just a phenomenal job. We now have more and more, uh, pharmacies. They're preparing the vaccine. Let me go back, Bill. Just a minute. Discourse it to our schools. We can't We can't I want make sure but understand. We can't vaccinate every We don't have enough vaccine on he because we get it every week. We can't vaccinate every school on February 1. So you know, what we have scheduled is about 500 separate locations or not separate locations. Separate schools these air public private parochial. That will start next week. Um, I'm just looking down here is the list. Uh, in your you're listening area, Alan Calley. Uh, they want you up their butler County. They listen to you there, and I got long string of Of schools, you know, and they're scattered all over the stage is here. I'm looking at Franklin County. There's there's Madonna. There's Mahoning. Uh, you know, Montgomery, Callie people. A lot of people listen to you in Montgomery County. We're going to get the vaccine next week, so but everybody can't get that once. I just can't get everybody one day. Actually let me share with you a note I have from a superintendent or ask to be nameless. He didn't want to get on your excrement list. And he said, Our teachers have been working since September and we have the shields up. We have mask in place. We have arrows. We have 6 ft. Separation and I read in them and the inquire. He says that the CPS since I probably schoolteachers. Who have not been in school, much like the Chicago public School and all of a sudden beginning tomorrow, CPS teachers are getting the vaccine and not my teacher's house. It fair to punish the teachers at work. Can you answer that question? Yes, sir. I sure can. Um, and let me start by the fax. Uh, Cincinnati schools are gonna start on Thursday. But not all of them cases. Three is what they're starting with. They're going to be spread out over the next three weeks. S O B. Many schools will be totally vaccinated before since night. Hoping schools are totally vaccinated. I think you have to keep your eye on the ball on. Let me again Bill State work. The goal is, uh, we're seeing kids who have not been in school and this is about kids. But it is about the kids. We've seen kids who have not been in school for one year. I gotta get back. Got to get him back in school. We got mental health problems. We've got developmental problems with social problems. We have all kinds of problems. These kids not being in school, not fair, not fair to the kids. So What we decided to do is to say, Look if you'll go back to school. We're gonna vaccinate you. Anybody in your school? It once vaccination, but you have to go back to school to get that, as I said. 90% of school said they will do that. Yes, There are absolutely great teachers out there who have been in school the entire year. And if I was one of those teachers, I might look over and say, would you Why is somebody else going ahead of me? But the goal is to get kids in school in class. That means I've got a vaccine that we've got to vaccinate every school and we certainly have to vaccinate those teachers who have not been in school because we want to get him in school. So the kids so Don't look out. In the point of view of the teachers. I understand there's there's inequity and all things in life and in particular sickly when you don't have enough vaccine. I can't start everybody the same day but Please..

"Daughters the HPV vaccine starting at age nine. To protect them later in life. You're listening to Chicago's afternoon news here on 7 20. W G. And I'm Steve Berg trend and I'm waiting for my vaccine. The Reverend William he Hall senior is the pastor at ST James Church. It's his turn. And he wants to take a pass. Reverend. Welcome. How are you, man? I'm well. All right. Tell me about your church 8000 block of South Michigan Avenue, right? Yeah, it's right there. Literally off 79th Street, Right? At the border of Chatham, one block down the street from Carter Temple Chatham. Another line used to be my nursery right there and take a funeral right there in church, And so your your numbers come up for the vaccine, and you would like to give that vaccine to Chicago Public school teacher instead. Absolutely. I mean, do the work that I do as a chaplain. In addition to pastor at you can, which is a social service agency on the West side. We've really been in the front lines over 30,000 Mills, countless upon countless numbers of mask and handsome ties, And so when I got the invitation in my box I was like one side of the coin. Do I think is needed? Absolutely Do I think it's um A part of our restoration is a city and country. Absolutely, however. You know, I wasn't raised to get in front of people and be ruled in. So one thing that I think is only right is to give it to someone that is, you know, right? They're being asked to be on the front line. I mean, luckily, at times, I can go two or three weeks, you know, working remotely, But you know, our teachers are being asked to be in the classroom every single day. Buildings for eight hours and more. And so I just want to do the right thing. I think your eyes a chap Ministers are in one B or we're captains on one B is that the group? Yeah, And the interesting thing is, um, When I saw that I was saying to myself, that's for the entire state. You know what I mean? And so you have to put into considerations those from the bottom all the way to the top. Of our of our state. And so you know, Lord knows when those that things will be available in a vast amount for our teachers here in Chicago. And in addition to that you're hearing stories of people who, you know, I don't want to take it. But then the shelf life and you know they haven't place vaccines. And so you know, there's a teacher. There's willing, ready and able to do it right now. And so, you know, I just wanted to again eight and what is being active us to say why they could save somebody's teachers they thinking or in one sea so they would be the next group after After your group. Okay, Reverend, But you know that you can't do that, right? I mean, that would just the they're already screwed up Logistically if people started because I actually was thinking of this, You know, I I'm coming up pretty soon. I would happen if we give it to my parents or one of my parents, but A just would so further complicate things, and I don't know if they're up to the job now. Well, I think that essentially, I mean, you know, constructing the system that will allow it. Here. People have got a little bit further advance and time doing such a thing. But I will say something that is simple is number one You can actually question and that's what you know. I'm simply asking a simple question. Can this be done? And I think the simplest way to do it is once I get my time you know to get scheduled show up allowed the person who's accompanying me to sign a waiver. And essentially at the end of the day and allow them to literally share their identification. Do go through the process because I know that the vaccination card sponsor, but how hard is it to send essentially delete someone who's scheduled and add a new name at the same time? That they're supposed to be there. Well, it's very generous of you, But is that what you're gonna do? Are you gonna bring a teacher with you? S so again. That's my intent on s. Oh, I you know, and waiting to get the logistics back in. The hope is that you know it could be done A B c, d e f g. I have not heard. Any word back from the mayor's office. Haven't heard back from the you know, Department of Public Health. But if this feasible why not? You know so again. I think that it should be done. I think it can be done. Hey, how's your congregation doing through all this? You know, we wait is difficult. I mean, we are adjusting with technology that we're in. But there's nothing like human touch is nothing like encouraging someone that you see when you know, Um you know when you're around, and what you feel from human touch is essentially best again. One of the reasons why I believe that. You know, our Children being in school is essential, but having safe teachers as well because the human touch is needed, So we just trying to figure out how to continue to stay in touch, But you know we're doing, say, simple and sacred Ministry on $1000 have have you lost members. You know, I have. Unfortunately in 2020 did not lose anyone to death because of covert. But literally last week I got word and it wasn't covert related. But we lost the eldest member in our church 96 years old, Mr Thomas, But throughout the pandemic people in our congregations, family members. Has passed away because of cold, including my uncle, but I have not had to, you know, walk with the family through grieving because they, you know, lost someone. That's a part of our faith community. Well, I'm sorry to hear about your eldest member, and I'm happy you've lost No one in your congregation. How about in general? How's life there? Well, you know me to be honest with you hopeful. I mean, you know, we write a different chapter on you know American history in a few days, so hopeful, But we are on alert. And what I mean by that is There are a lot of things that changing and after speed of time, and so we all on alert to figure out how to continue to love and serve all those that are in need that we are somehow connected and again when six teachers and my congregation, you know, are connected to our house. So we again alert on trying to figure out and being willing to help those in need. All right, Listen, I think when you show up with your teacher, they're not going to give it to the teachers. So I want you to roll up your sleeve because we need guys like you around too. Well, I appreciate you, man. And like I said, I'm gonna do what I can and can't hopefully get teaches a vaccine be well.

"Yeah, well, we'll see. We'll see exactly where that where that falls out. But I think that's right that by this but by this summer if we you know if we have good vaccine uptake, and things continue to go well, and they have on the distribution front. I do think that this summer is going to look very different from last summer, but that that needs everybody needs to do their part with the things that we already know, work, get educated about the vaccine on want to take it when it is their turn. Nice to talk to Dr. Keep doing what you're doing. Thank you very much. Appreciate it. Alison are buddies. Time is busy. And I know some of you had questions. I hope we answered them. The numbers 3129817 200. Joe, I know you wanted to ask her, though, about the 20 cases of covert 19 in Chicago public schools, right? Yes, John Aziz. You guys were totally earlier. There are cases in the public schools and I don't know if it's 20 or more, But you know, with the politics going on, they want the teachers to go back. The classroom, so the parents don't have to baby sit their kids and they can go to work and I get that, but it's It's not worth the life of any child. And I think what was you concentrate on more is The experience of getting the covert vaccine to all people involved, and therefore maybe we can do that and minimize the problem. It just Makes no sense to me why they why they would go against the grain and has the possibility of a kid dying of cold. It. We have not had kids dying of covert in Chicago public schools. We've had instances where people get sick or teachers and staff gets sick. It's a calculated risk. How many, but it's a 300,000. What is the Look, Maybe you could look that up for us. What is the enrollment in the Chicago public schools and the metric for that is not even 6.5%. They know the kids are going to get sick when they go to the Chicago public schools or that they will get the virus. They might not get sick, but they might get the virus and the metric that they announced. I think I've got this right. Is that the rate If it doesn't double fast enough. If the infection rate doesn't double fast enough, then they're going to keep the kids in the school and the teachers in this school. They know it's going to go up there just going to hope that it doesn't double too quickly. That's the metric, which is kind of shocking, isn't it? But who cares if the kids can safely go to the school? That is, if you've got the virus? This is the thinking you may disagree. Joy is still with me on this. I know I'm giving you a long winded answer. I'm with you, John. But it doesn't matter if one kid dies. It's one too many. It doesn't make sense. It's all about politics. And it's not about doing the right thing. Wait a minute. I don't understand the politics of it. So what? Tell me what you want the schools to do all zoom learning right now. Is that what you think they should do? Yeah, I think they should do do zoom learning. And you know what? Until you get everybody there shot and it goes down appreciably. Listen, Is it more important that we wait? Ah, couple months or starter again next year. I mean, let's Let's be reasonable. I mean, it doesn't make sense to me. Look It's just like all the kids getting killed on the street. What are they doing? The change that, you know, it doesn't make sense to me. Really doesn't listen. I got you, buddy. I'm glad you listen. I'm glad you called. Thanks, Joe. You're welcome. Have a good day, 340,000. Students in the Chicago public schools. It's okay to be of two minds these days. You know you can see it both ways because it's just an impossible situation. You're worried that if the kids go into the school, they'll get it. They probably won't get very sick. If they do. It's almost certain that that will not happen. It's 99.9 something percent chance that the kid will be fine if they get the covert 19 or that they won't get it at all. So you say. Okay, let's take that risk. Some of the teachers don't want to go in there and then you say, Here's the other mind that you can have because it's true that if we just wait a little bit longer, wait until March. Maybe the teachers will all at least be vaccinated and That will solve a lot of the problems. That will solve a lot of the problems. So which side of that are you on? To be honest with you? I'm with what the schools are doing right now. I think that they should be in the classroom. I think they should be offering in school learning. I do not have a kid going in there. I'm not going in there. But that's the risk that I think the school has said we should take. And I support that. 10 26 on WGN. You know, a little while ago we were talking about The kids learning via Zoom and what it is like when they don't turn their cameras on. We got a ton of text messages and phone calls about that this morning about what the experience is like, and this is one thing I never thought about because I figure if you are in a classroom in your student You're used to people seeing you and Yu seeing people. That's high school. That's great school. But there are plenty of kids who are bashful or don't want to be. Quote unquote on camera. You don't like how they look, or they don't like people looking at them or in there, the room or whatever The circumstances are. There's plenty of kids out there that don't want other people seeing them or their space. So they turn the camera off..

"All right, So let's talk about what's going on with the schools today. Chicago Public School's back in session at least For some students first time since of March for any students and CPS to actually be back in the classroom. So this is big lot of concerns from teachers. You've heard them. They've been on the picket lines this morning, demonstrating about safety concerns, safety issues. They were told, though they had to show up today unless they got some sort of approved, waver or have been given some sort of, you know, excusable to not be there that if you didn't show up today that you wouldn't be paid, and I just wonder how things are going. Let's check in with NATO. Isa the Chicago Sun Times He covers education. How you doing later? Good. How are you? Thanks for having me. Thanks for having talking to us on such a busy day.

But yeah, people, people are excited. Some families are happy to have their kids back. And then obviously we have AH lot of teachers who are worried for their health. Worried about being classrooms with Kids reminding them to keep their masks on s O. I mean everything that we've heard over the past few weeks about, um, for example, students being in a classroom eating lunch, having to take their masks off. That's from what? I saw a bit of a concern today, But the school that I visited had a ton of precautions in place they had Masks, temperature checks at the door health screeners, social distancing so and some mixed bag So far today wasn't one of the things that the teachers union pointed out that the air filtration was not Up to the standards of they had hoped for that. That was one of the points that they looked at and said, Hey, we're not ready. It's not safe. Have you looked into that nature? I mean, is that it was not an issue in the school. You're looking at there, are you? What do you what do you feel in there? So the school that I was at today? Um, I say all of this with the caveat that this is where the mayor's office invited us to. And so you can imagine that this school, maybe more than any other in the district. Has been prepared from all from all facets. So as far as filtration goes, I felt comfortable in the school that I that I went into, Um it seemed like windows were there were filtration systems. I will say there was a care room where once a student feels sick. And they're waiting for a parent to come Pick them up. That's where they're taken. There's supposed to be a worker in there with like, very, very protective PPE like a heavy duty mask and shield. And so they sort of go there and wait. That room felt a little stuffy. I questioned the ventilation in there. It felt like it was 80 degrees. And, um, I was I was wondering if this little portable ventilation system was going to do the trick. But as far as the rest of the school goes, the classroom seemed pretty safe. The students were social distance. Um, the teachers were were distance wearing masks, so it It seemed to be okay. It's interesting because the decision was made for the pre K and the special ed, partly because they don't feel as if they transmit the virus is much and there's some health studies that support that, But it's also because they seem to be some of the most needy students that are not doing well are doing The least well with remote learning, especially special ed kids. I've heard you know it even that you've come on the show and you've talked about how even their parents may not feel comfortable, may not feel like it's safe for them to return. But But here here we are, In a situation where the mayor and the head of the schools is saying we absolutely need to get these kids at least the ones whose parents are okay with it back in school. And the teachers are strongly opposed to that. Which is why we've seen the picketing today. What do you make of where we are now? Well, it's gonna be, um, a little little bit of a back and forth for the next few weeks. Teachers still are comfortable now. Some are and We've seen that there's been an uptick in the number who showed up to work in the past over the past week. We know last Monday about 40% didn't go to work in person. When they were supposed to you today It's our Friday it was up to about 70%, who showed up And so with that said, they're they're still these issues that the teachers union is raising over the week. And there are about 150 CPS nurses who signed the letter saying they still don't think the plan is safe. Um, parents are sort of making their own decisions. We talked to parents who are walking into their It'd school this morning or walking their kids up to the school. And even the ones who are bringing their kids in person or sort of split. There are some who stayed. This is great for we're so happy to be back. We've needed this. There are others who say I was really on the fence. We're going to see how this goes the first few days. But even though I know that there are these protocols in place, it's still tough toe know that my kid is back among other people, Other students, teachers And knowing that there is that risk involved. You know, One of the one of the big headlines today has been that so the mayor extends thestreet at home. Order the advisory. I guess you could call it rather than order and some are saying that looks like kind of a muddy message or conflict because you're saying you only should leave home to go to work. Very very, You know, few reasons to leave the house. It's like medical care, shopping for groceries, take up meals. You know that kind of thing. And then yet you open schools today. I think the mayor's position might very well be. Schools are essential and we need to get our kids back. And that It's important to do that. I've seen.
