"In DPS on the picket lines now for a second day today and deep. Is facing a class action lawsuit. That says the district is failing to serve disabled students during the strike. Attorney eager rake in filed the lawsuit and joins us live to talk about a good morning. Good morning kinda give us the crux of the claims made in this lawsuit. Well, under federal law, special education students disabled children have a right to an education and a right to special services based under disabilities. The concerns here is that the replacements for the teachers, nurses school psychologists counselors and all of the folks who normally work with these kids are simply not trained or equipped actually provide them those services. I asked us respectfully were you laying in wait for this to happen to launch this lawsuit. So we were concerned that this was going to be an issue. And the reason that we are concerns because EPS never publicly stated really how it was going to address this. This is not a new issue. It should have been something that they anticipated. So we had concerns for the past several weeks and months actually that at no point the GPS go out and say, well, this is how we're going to serve over ten thousand disabled kids in Denver public schools. We were just talking about this very issue in our newsroom yesterday. We were wondering what do you do as a parent of a of a disabled child? Do you have any numbers of how many disabled kids are continuing to go to school this week? And how many parents are just saying, you know, what I'm going to keep my kid at home. I'm sorry. I don't know that anecdotally, I can tell you from talking to many many parents that I represent with disabled children that they did keep their kids home. And really, it's you know, there are two concerns number one is that they're not going to learn anything while the schools are full of substitutes and number two, many of them are simply worried about the safety of these kids. Remember, a lot of these kids are autistic kids, for example, who have a tremendous amount of difficulty adjusting themselves to new people and new situations. I have a special needs daughter myself. I know I've been keeping our home as well. What is your? I guess you're ending with this. And how is deep DPS responded to this? If they said, okay, we'll do more of this. And what do you want to get out of this? I guess. So first of all just to make clear there is no money claim in the suit, what we want to do is actually develop a plan for how it's going to serve these kids now, and then when the strike in how it's going to make up for all of these services, the GPS response, so far has been that they have some of the people that they brought his central offices, and the substitutes are special education, shrink that is absolute nonsense. It takes years to be properly trained to be a special education service provider or teacher many of them have to have master's degrees. You're not just going to pick up substitutes off the street and say that they're going to that. They're actually qualified to be special education service providers are just the same the people in central administration who are your accountants or your tech people or have other jobs. They're not teachers. There's simply no way that they're quit too. Actually, do right by these kids. All right. Good points. We'll see where this goes attorney ebor rake in thanks so much for the time. Thank you, hansonmcclain dot com. Providing a.

Still through both chambers of congress get enough votes. Of course, get that presidential signature. So a lot of hoops to jump through correspondent Manu Raju. If no deal is reached President Trump has left open the possibility of declaring a national emergency to get the funding. He needs to build a wall.

On the border is a manufactured crisis. And we are not interested and participating in.

So the national guards not really needed their Newsom wants the guard deployed to help ready to state for the next fire season and held go after illegal marijuana gross.

"But I'm just flabbergasted that we're going to strike that the kids in Denver public schools will pay the price because the adults who teach them and the adults who manage those teachers can't come to an agreement. There's something in the air nationwide. That makes it. That makes it much more enjoyable to strike right now for the last few. Maybe it's Trump maybe because Trump is is an office that people feel much more comfortable in that. It's time to stand up. We've seen it now in several cities across the country. We've seen people. Saying we've got we've got to strike. I don't understand why. At least we're up my rules. One more time. If I were the school board the DPS school board, which by the way is very very union friendly.

But instead of paying you back paid when we do figure this out, we will overtime strikes. Don't last forever.

"Denver public schools is the largest school district in Colorado. They serve a diverse group of people. They serve a diverse group of of children, and they serve them through a government fits all system. Oh, there's some pockets of choice. They're more charter schools than ever before. And that's spectacular. But if you're poor that's really early choice. Maybe you can get your kid into a charter school. If you get through the lottery, but you can't take that money and go someplace else. And starting tomorrow morning. Your kids will be robbed of their education. Some teachers have the goal to say we're doing this for the kids. I haven't quite figured that one out. What is it that the teachers want? What is it that you as taxpayers want? I'd like to know three zero three seven one three eight two five five seven one three talk. DPS has one of the largest bureaucratic overheads of any school district in Colorado. In fact, they have more administrators per teacher than any other district in Colorado. Say it again, there are more people working in administration than there are teaching kids. In Denver public schools compared to anybody else. Most districts throughout Colorado have an average of a battle seven and a half. Teachers Kerr every one administrator. Denver. It's closer to seven and a half. Teachers per every one administrator so where can they find some more money for teaching? Well, that'd be a good place. But it seems as though with the teacher's union wants is to make sure that that money doesn't go to teachers for particular projects that is they want to make sure that teachers don't get paid more because they teach in this high risk school or because they teach this subject, which is more difficult. I've never understood why teachers are so. Reluctant. To be judged on their merit. And when I talked to teachers. To a T they'll all say variations of the same thing. Which is we know who the bad teachers are. Yeah. They're good teachers. There's better teachers, there are great teachers and there, and we all know the difference. We all know the ones who are putting in their time. We all know the ones who put in the extra effort. I said, well, why don't you want that teacher who's putting in the extra effort to get paid more the union has them? So scared. This Stockholm syndrome. Of well, you can't have a teacher want that. Because of teacher gets that. That means other teachers will be hurt. And what happens if you're not reviewed? Well. That mean old management was gonna come down it make it difficult for you. Why is it that in every other part of society? We we can judge teachers, but we can't judge them in education and every other partisan we evaluate employees employees employers have a relationship. And they know what what they're being judged by now that we've turned teachers into more and more into. These all these little minions that are supposed to have. No atonomy. I guess maybe it just doesn't matter. What? What we ask them to do because they're just they're just not professional, and this is this is the part that drives me nuts. Teachers will want to be considered professional what the teacher's union Denver is proving is that they're not professionals why because professionals don't get compensated. Based on salary schedule. Professionals get compensated based on the work. They do thus. They are professionals. Doctors don't work for scale. Lawyers don't work for scale. You pay the better ones more. Why is it different in education? Why or teachers fearful? And how we understand this part. The anger that the union has to bonuses. What is it about the bonus structure that they dislike is it? Because when you have bonuses. It's just that different. Teachers can do things differently. Does it somehow mean that? Teachers aren't all the same. I think that's what it is. Right now. The big issue for this strike is the issue of bonuses. The union doesn't want bonuses. They just want. Everybody to get paid more. I'm convinced this strike had to happen. It's gonna be sad to see kids caught up in the middle of it. Maybe there's a policy answer. I want to debut that idea when we get back. Here's something to help the kids during.

"Call it. I don't know Denver public schools. Jeffco? And I think the cherry creek had a late start. We were our late today for the Douglas county. Well, which I can understand the late star because it was because Kohl's no storm. And then it's the traffic in the morning. It's crazy. You know, just let them have an get school buses the Denver teachers have to continue to negotiate with the district because if not they're going on strike Monday. They're more money. Well, they deserve the teachers deserve more money. I was I was reading a little bit about that. They they've offered I believe is a three million dollars total extra. But there are so many teachers. The teachers are underpaid. I know there are some people probably some people that work at the station that would disagree. My my suggestion would be for you to spend a month in a classroom high school classroom and see how it is to teach today, and then come back and make the case that teachers are not deserving more money. I teachers are underpaid in my book. There's no question about that. And I would like to see that rectified as best possible. I wonder if they could do something to with parents because I'd be willing to give more money to get the teachers pay more does go to a private school. Well, I would be the answer be what you would do. Well, if you're willing to pay more money, go ahead. You're right. Thousand dollars in Senator private school. I would rather take that fifteen thousand give it to the public school. Teachers. Enough. There was a way to have like a fun that you could donate. Everybody writes, a check for fifteen thousand I'm saying, whatever you can you don't have to give fifteen thousand, but whatever you can to pay extra for the teachers in a lot of cases, private schoolteachers make less than public schoolteachers because the private schools don't have a union to deal with right? So they're going to pay whatever they feel like is is fair pay. It's interesting apparently this school, Colorado schools are at the bottom of pay for the country. There are some school districts where they get paid. Really, well, and I know because one of my best friends taught in the Chicago area told me what he made I was shocked what he made in even he was embarrassed to tell me you were shocked in terms of how much money Malaysian-made. Yeah. My mom, he retired. He got a pension to ago at his full his highest pay of his career for the rest of his life. Teach. There was like ninety thousand or something something thousand dollars. Wow. Brandon your mom's retired here taught sixteen in Illinois twenty nine in Texas her pension, and Illinois is significantly more than her Texas pension by Illinois pays really well. So give me a ballpark. What is your friend? Like, what was the ballpark number nine hundred thousand that he's making for the rest of it. How many years that he taught taught probably twenty five to thirty. Yeah. I think there would be will ninety might be up there. I think there would be administrators. I mean deans that after a good number of years might approach that number. I don't know about classroom teachers in Colorado. I think that they wouldn't make that I don't think he was a P E teacher. Oh, wow. PE teacher. All he had was a bachelor's degree. Didn't have a masters didn't have a PHD. He ended up at the end of his career. He was like assistant vice principal or something. Thus. You got Mormon got like the last couple years. He was able to really capitalize on that pension. Like, he's my age. He's gonna make ninety something. Plus. He doesn't have to work. No. He's just took took another job as kind of like the pension from the FOX in it. I mean, similar if you decided not to do you guys. Don't do the morning show. I don't know tomorrow. Have a pension on the FOX. Read that's two dollars. I feel like I wish I could give east and teachers more money. You know what I'm saying? They're dealing twenty-five kindergarteners. Yeah. That's all day long. I mean that just seems really hard and they're not getting paid anything direst untracked cash. It's like college recruiting. Kathy just walks in with a bag full of money. Thompson come here. Here's five hundred dollars hundred ninety nine hundred they don't have to declare it to the Bank. So just give them a cashier's check for ninety nine hundred. Yeah, I'm sure that will get around the school really fast. We like to have eastern in our class. We'd like you to be the chair of five different committees. I know they do a fundraiser for the school like we're having a rare. But that goes to all the extracurricular things, you always sort of. I don't know if you chair the fundraise, but you're always always help. Absolutely. Because I I always have felt that teachers should get paid more money. He told me that the Chicago Tribune got ahold of how much money they were making it his district and made a big deal about it. And like people were shocked like, are you kidding me? You're paying these guys that kind of money to be a PE teacher work nine months out of the year. Really? And he said it was a big deal. That's why he said I'm embarrassed to tell you what's happened to this state. I don't know why why are the salaries of teachers in this state? So I dunno dramatically low to good question the states to win really? Well, eric. Hi, you're on KOA. Hey, guys morning. And I love Dave long time. Thank you. I just like the way in a little bit. Some teachers do is there more. So maybe not. But I I have a problem with administrators like Denver public schools. The superintendent of Denver public schools makes twenty thousand dollars a month. Well, maybe he should take some of that money out of his pocket and give it to the teachers. Well, he is a she. I think is is that not correct. Well, no the fill in when she is not there. They said it on crack Clark said that are nine news. He fill in while they were trying to find the new one was making twenty thousand dollars a month. I thought the Denver public school superintendent was Susannah Cordova Cordova a brand new one. Yes, sir. Tom, boys. Berg Berg was the one who was there before. So maybe make a lot more money than the teachers is what he's trying to say that. I mean, I think that's the case in in all school districts. All right interesting. Let me let me get a news break in here. And then we've got another twenty five thirty minutes on the other side this KOA News Radio. We we're Valentine's Day coming up guys. It's going to be here before you know, it take care of that special lady in your life or ladies. Yamana get something for your wife. You want to get something for your mom your mother-in-law few have daughters. You wanna take care of them as well. I did this this week. The girls in my life all got taken care of Tuesday. I sent some Sheri's berries and some red roses, and that's a great deal. They got going on right now. And you can't go wrong, the berries dipped in milk and dark and white chocolate. Goodness.

To pass the Senate on Thursday. The Senate will take up competing Republican and democratic bills to reopen government. The Republican plan includes President Trump's five point seven billion dollar requests for border wall money in exchange for temporary changes to immigration laws. The democratic proposal is a stopgap funding Bill to reopen the government until February eighth that will allow border security talks to continue without continuing to tie up unrelated government agencies and workers affected by the impasse.

"Twelve new Denver public schools superintendent sued Susannah Cordova just finishing her first week on the job today. She's now in teacher pay negotiations with the Denver classroom teachers association tried to avoid a teacher strike, and she joins us now to talk about all of it. Good morning. Good morning. How are you? Good. Thank you, kind of give us a sense of your mission and your vision. Sure. So, you know, I'm a long-time member of the Denver public schools community, and I feel deeply committed to making sure that we're supporting each and every one of our children to reach high levels. And so my goals coming in have been to have stronger community engagement and teamwork to focus on equity and to really improve. Our instructional excellence for always scheming. And what does that look like when you prove the instructional tools as you mentioned? What does that mean? Exactly. I think that's really making sure we have very high expectations for our students. You know, strong curricular resources that's training for our teachers to make sure that they know how to reach those high expectations. How to provide students with the experiences to reach those high expectations. You know, we're already a district where many of our students performing seemingly. Well, and my goal is to make sure that that that's not just some our kids, but all of our kids. What do you think of pay for performance? You know, everybody talks about how teachers aren't well compensated, but should there be tying into how well kids are doing in class. No, actually, that's something that we have already decided here in Denver. Our voters passed our procomp mill Levy in two thousand and five that already provides us with about thirty three million dollars a year that is explicitly a program to reward performance. Right now, we're in the middle of conversations with our teachers on how do we actually use that funding to help teachers deal with the increased cost of living in Denver. But rewarding for performance is already something that we do. And that we're going to continue to do it on that note house negotiations going with the teachers because I know there's talk of strike, sure. So, you know, I'm actually very optimistic that we will be able to get to a solution that works for everyone. We have four more days for full days of negotiations coming up I'm getting ready to head out to negotiations today. And then we'll have three more days next week. And I believe actually that we will be able to get to a solution. I know certainly we're hearing a lot of from our teachers around the importance of bargaining the importance of showing up and being ready to listen to give proposals to counter proposals to truly negotiate. And that's the disposition. I take best of luck to you. And congrats on the job. Thank you so much. Eight fifteen.
