"You know, the department Education made an announcement this week yesterday that transgender students are protected under title nine say the law prohibits sex based discrimination it does and federally funded schools they want to change the definition of sex. To include with the left often refers to was actually the definition of gender. If you ask Sort of the average transgender activists through the years, our sex and gender the same thing. They'll say, no, that they're not that they're two distinct things. Your biological sex is the thing that the doctor knows instantly when you're born your gender, though That's a spectrum that's completely different thing, but not according to the Biden administration now. The protections designed to protect women under title nine will now be exploited to basically the plant Women. To say that you know the people who identify as women can take the positions that women would have taken. Amazing for more on this. We bring in our next guest. Her name is Jennifer Bursaries, director of the Independent Women's Law Center on the phone now, Jennifer Good afternoon to you. Hi. How are you doing? Well, how meaningful is this? This change to title nine. It's extremely meaningful. I mean, when title nine was passed, it had a very clear purpose to protect women and girls from discrimination and to expand opportunities for them in the educational arena. Nobody at that time thought that the word sex Meant gender or gender identity. Everybody understood what the law was trying to do. And this is really a radical rewriting, um, of law and language in the United States, right. So, like, you know, I think I think most conservatives who come at this issue like Look, you re gender and sex. It's the same thing. They're interchangeable terms, but at the left has had this position for a while that these are two distinct things. So it seems like they're abandoning even their own rules here because the law doesn't say gender. It says sex very specifically. And it's meant to protect women. And what you have now is a blurring of the law and the language specifically to make it so that, for instance, men Came. Biological men can compete now in women's sports inside of these colleges and universities. Right. I mean, a couple of things to impact their I think First of all, gender and sex have come to be used interchangeably in common parlance. So my teenage kids Would say gender discrimination and instead when they what they really need to sex discrimination and to the public at large. It means the same thing. It never meant the same thing. An academic literature or in you know, scientific literature or in legal terms. And, you know, I think there's actually a seam in the movie The Ruth Bader Ginsburg movie on the basis of sex where she's She's Arguing a sex discrimination case, and she writes this brief and she's throughout the brief, she says sex discrimination and her secretary comes to her at one point and says You know, Ruth, I really think you ought to change the word to gender because when you say sex all the time, it's going to be really distracting to the male judges on the bed. Now, I don't know if this actually happened or not, if it's completely apocryphal, but it does sort of represent what happened in our society, which is that people were squeamish with the word sex to mean biology. And so they started saying gender all the time and as a result They handed the left this sort of victory, where they have now been able to redefine legally what it means to be female. What a fascinating thank you for that. What a fascinating history of that and, um but and it is. It does feel like what's happened here is that language is being is being meaningfully manipulated specifically in a world where the language really matters like when you write a law and you use the word sex. It has a very specific term. So what is what is the impact going to be now that the vitamin ist rations says that they aren't going to make a distinction between those two terms and that anyone who is considered transgender is thus protected under Title nine. Right. So what it means is, um, that biological men will have an opportunity to try out for and compete on women's sports teams. It means they'll have an opportunity to receive. Um, scholarships that are intended to increase the participation of girls and women in stem and they will be able to to take all sorts of opportunities away from women and girls now. With the Biden administration would say We just want to prevent discrimination, unfair discrimination against these people. And nobody, of course, is arguing that a transgender high school kids should be denied his education because because you know, he or she is struggling with his gender identity or because they are transgender. Nobody. Believe that, but the administration what they're using the language of discrimination when what they're really doing is asking for an accommodation, right? They're not saying schools can't discriminate against transgender people. We all we all agree with that, but that's not what the activists are asking for their asking for spots on the team and seats at the table. That belonged to biological women. Yes, they're asking to discriminate against women. That's what they're asking for. And that's that. That that that is the impact of this. Um this is also I know a number of states have introduced bills, and some of them have passed successfully laws that would ban uh, men biological men who identify as women. As transgender women from playing sports on college at colleges across the country. Is this the Biden administration's attempt to go to war with those states? It is and and those laws I would say are complicated because each of those bills are different, and I wish that what they did was focused on athletics at the university and college level. But unfortunately most of our politicians are too afraid of the boy, and they're too afraid of woke capitalism, boycotting their states and not hosting co agent level events. So unfortunately, what some of these laws have done is banned. That you know, at the K through 12 level, which really, you know, does anybody really care of transgender kid is playing soccer on a, you know. Uh, whatever, on a first grade soccer team? No, not really. I mean, individual communities can figure out how to accommodate people. Without there. Being laws about it. Where this is really significant is where scholarships and roster spots come into play at major universities. And that's when you're taking opportunities away from girls and arguably at the high school varsity level as well. Um So unfortunately, I think some of these bills are not well drafted. But to answer your question. Yes, this is the Biden administration's attempt to supersede Yeah State level attempts to protect women's sports. Every so often, I think I just want to jump into a time machine and go back and then tell like a feminist from decades ago like Hey, the end product of your work is biological men will be the winners. Like what? How does that work? Exactly? Thank you so much. Jennifer Bursaries. Great to have you from the Independent Women's Thanks for having me take care. Good to talk to you. Now. Time for W m I l traffic.

"One thing notable here on the final day of the Trump presidency is the publication and presentation of a report called the 17 76 report. And it is what's face it a direct response to the unhitch Storr ical. Divisive. 16 19 project, put out by The New York Times garnered a Pulitzer Prize. The 17 76 project re establishes the historic Story of the founding of this nation what it was founded on what it stood for and what it should still stand for joining us now to discuss that is a frequent guest of ours. He'll still college vice president for Washington operations Matthew Spalding. But in this capacity, Dr Spaulding You're not here on behalf of Hillsdale, necessarily because you were actually brought into the president's circle to actually conduct this research and deliver this paper. Where you not, sir. Well, great to be a few, Larry. Yeah, I took leave from my position. Hilldale, So I was on leave. Appointed by the Thistles under the department education but within the White House. To do there's reports. It's based on the president's executive order, which was issued back in November, which I would encourage you to go back and look at Which is to create the commission to give the president advice on. Principles, the founding and the meaning of 17 76 so that that Those those understand understanding in shape. How we look at How the what other things The federal government does that have teaching influences? How it programs are organized, Looking ahead to the 250th anniversary of the Declaration independence to your commission. And so we have issued our first reported actually cannot yesterday formally on Martin Luther King Day. For good reason. Martin Luther King was himself a the civil rights movement of Martin Luther King. Look back to the Declaration of Independence for Gheit's He spoke, he saw there's the promissory note that all men are created equal. And so he himself pointed back to 17 76. So that's when we chose to issue the report. That's great. I love that. So before we get into the meat of the report over and actually first, where can people get this and obtain it and read it and write right now, as in as in today, it's on the White House website, Go to White House dot gov slash news On download a copy of the report. But it's also now a public document which you say was committed to the president. It's Sal been publicly released. And so hopefully that report will now go to other websites. People can can she send it around? Put it on their website. And hopefully give it a continuing life. On because we don't know what will happen after tomorrow. What this commission to your commission. What will happen with this report? If it goes down somewhere in the deep or archives like the end of up Uh, what was your movie at the end of which, when they took the Ark of the Covenant and ship it back into the archives never to be seen again. Exactly. Raiders watching one of those boxes. Yeah, right. I'm still looking to get it right now with, like, seven years, And I'm still looking for that warehouse by the way, right, right, going to search someday. Actress Spalding before we get into the meat of it, um Can you tell us why this was so important? What was so insidiously destructive about The New York Times 16 19 project. Well, it really is a broader question, And, in a certain sense, it's broader than the 16 19 project, the others Howard's in there's other revisionist historians. The problem is that history is in many ways become a partisan thing. It's now it's now itself becoming almost an ideological saying, And so the approach of this, um this report Is really to point us back to just let's get back. Honest history, a history that's not partisan space on the fax. Let's look at the whole record. It recognizes that there are flaws in that record. That's in perfect but it Z report really is looking at America in a different way. Today we want to see it either. All good or all bad, all perfect, all flawed. Winning reality with the little what America is white, so different and unique. Is it Scott these these principles and then seeing the declaration that all men are created equal. Um and we are flawed. We're in perfect. Our history has problems in it, but also got great good things. It's got great nobility, and it's always about a movement towards and aspirations of living up to our principles. That's where Martin Luther King like that. That's the way the suffragettes movement looked at. That's the way the abolitionist looked at it. That's the way the anti Communist looked at it. All The great reforms in American history point back to those aspirations. For guidance and prints in those principles. But historians don't look American history today. Modern destroying, don't see it that way. All they see is an imperfect past, and so all they want to teach the flaws in the problems. Don't want ignore those floors. I don't ignore the fact that there was slavery. That time it's sounding I want to. I want students. Students had learned that but also What was it about America that Grove Have the rise and having abolitionism. I mean the founding. The principal at all many critical is what Lincoln used to get rid of slavery. The principle's the Founding was was the saying that was really turning point of of the Western civilizations, change of sensibilities about something like slavery. We should record back to that is part of our history. That's a noble aspect of our history. Dr. Spaulding that listen, This is academic conversation, certainly. And and a conversation for our society, our civil society and our culture. Um, But why is this important government document you? You made mention of what is discussed in taught within our federal government. Do our elected officials or should our elected officials? Maybe that's the better question, do they? Four setting policy before writing bills that become laws do they? Or should they reflect on our founding documents reflect on these ideals that our nation was founded on and the greatness of our our nation's founding and the struggles that we've had? Is that something that this hopes Tonto achieve on day actually tangentially? Instead. Have they been looking at things like the 16 19 Project or Howard Zinn's view of America? Do they create policies sadly, without pointing, looking at the greatness of our country, But instead looking at everything that's wrong with our country and taking it from a stance of America's the problem? That's why we need this flaw. Well, the general is that you're absolutely right. Of course, of course, elected officials should take these things into consideration. Out on the one hand the federal government rightly so, in my in our opinion, rightly so, does not actually write curriculum and tell states and locals and families what to teach. That's not what we're talking about. But having said that Any official of the government in executive branch that issue branch the legislative branch. They take most of the Constitution. Setting aside squabbling about what particular things mean. But I mean, in general terms their officers of this country of this regime of this nation. They should know something about it, and they should act according so absolutely. This kind of education. The education, the report, mostly is interested in Is a genuine education that is open to it really liberate the mind. So let's teach it works and all All of history. Both sides have a conversation about that. What you're really interesting. Here is the type of education that is citizen should have the word civic is in civics education means an education for a citizen. What should this citizen? No. Well, a citizen must know the history of their country. Honest, accurate, true history, which looks at the darker side. The bad side, miss takes the flaws. Also the great accomplishments and the and the principles that are guarding the nation. In America, unlike any other country in the world is guided by principles. That's why everything about American looks back to the beginning. That's why we debate 17 76. That's why every movement has always looked back there..

And we got to remember them by one being there for their families by two honoring those who did so much to try to save them and three by working to make this city better all the time in their memory, So many we lost.

"Supervising students who have laptops or have ipads in the class while their teacher works from home. That is because in high school of Brian You have a licensing dynamic that you don't really have an elementary school in high school. You need to have a licensed teacher to teach that specific content. Course I was a license history. I am still a license History teacher. You can't put me into a chemistry class to teach chemistry. In an elementary school need a general license where they could move teachers around with subs around the high school. The high school dynamic is far more complex and complicated because of state regulations. And that is why I am telling you that many high school kids will not be getting In person instruction Come this Thursday, they will be getting supervised remote instruction. If they have technology. Brian this morning I spoke to a high school principal. Of a small high school in New York City. She is still short 150 devices, plus Internet for her students. So then I even ready for remote instruction, either. So to be clear when you say supervised remote instruction. I'm trying to figure out exactly what that means. Maybe some some parents listening, Teo a swell Do you mean in that chemistry Hypothetical that you just gave Yet there might be some high school students who've chosen to go back in person who will then be getting their chemistry class from a chemistry teacher who is themselves at home. Correct. Correct. So they're in many cases, you're going to see students not getting in person instruction from their teacher. Their teacher will be working from home. You know, using a laptop or technology device to connect with him remotely, while a teacher from a different department or a substitute teacher will be physically in the class, just supervising them watching them, but not to. Okay, but we're in a pandemic and a lot of teachers are older or have other underlying conditions that led them to get these exemptions. What would you have them do? Maybe that's the best solution, and that's the best they can do. I don't think this is the best solution. Brian. I have laid forward a different vision and different proposal. Going back to July, I waited for the State Health Department Education department to release their reopening gardens before I shared my proposal. I believe that, as you mentioned were stolen a pandemic where two large of a school system to come back all at once. At the same time, 500,000 students of the 1.1 million go to elementary school, which today we're seeing the return of elementary school. What I believe is that which I think passes the equity test for kids who need Maurin Person services. Oh, and for working parents were facing impossible child situations right now is that we should give first of all we need to stay to give us money to operationalize all the safety plans. The I B O confirmed my concern that The guidance placed more cost on the city about $33 million a week and estimate that the idea released in terms of safety gardens.

"It had to sue the department education about this loan forgiveness a federal judge recently said we were the department of education was not following that order was five hundred thousand dollars I guess my question is what are we doing to collect those payments are still collecting payments from defrauded students and are we going to try to take care of those students and they're so every student that has filed up our what's called a borrower defense claim is that was put in forbearance at that time like before when I got my job there was no process and I said we it's gonna take awhile to figure out the process let's make sure the students are in are incurring anymore interest aren't having to pay more on their student loans as long as their claims are in process education secretary Betsy to Voss responding to questions from democratic congressman mark Pocan on C. span radio WCS PFM Washington and so that has been the case on all of those claims that are not yet closed now we've been we've been stymied a couple of stops along the way by procedural rulings in court we're still waiting for the ninth district to rule on a methodology but nothing pains me more than to not be able to resolve those completely thank you mon thank you madam chair and again thank you madam secretary for being here want to talk with you a little bit about the block grants because I I think that's an important concept that it's kind of hard to get our hands around so if I understand what you're saying is you're taking some of the federally mandated spending programs you're consolidating it gather into a flexible spending program that states and local school districts are going to have the ability to determine so for instance if one local community said they wanted to focus on school safety they could use those funds for that correct and if one said a we think career and college counseling should be part of it they could use it for that correct mental health counselors as my colleague mentioned you could use it for these needs that are identified kind of on the ground where people are saying his this is really what our school district needs well and and we're calling that most of these programs and including and especially title one were you know created to really help the most disadvantaged students and I go back to my opening statement where I said it a trillion dollars spent over the last forty years to close the achievement gap hasn't closed one bit has opened in many cases for for lots of kids particularly at the low end of the spectrum and so let's do something different let's allow for that flexibility to translate down to the local level so they can target those dollars where the students need it most thank you and then in terms of the dollar amount because I know whenever we're talking budgets people are upset about different spending levels ultimately your point is Congress is going to determine what spending level is in that correct I was from yes I would the the administration has advanced this budget proposal the important part of the policy part here about the block grant I think is the way it is a really important piece to consider okay thank you very much thank you mention thank you madam chair to follow up your last statement to me is we do not discriminate against children is that correct we uphold all of the laws of this land and art yes okay so for operating on a non discrimination basis which I think it's absolutely appropriate role for you to take I hope that you will resend on page eighty eight of the safe schools service and education FY twenty one budget request where you said you stand by that research research I will look forward to you reversing course from that position in your budget Democrat Catherine Clark and we can have a long discussion about tax credits and treasury and I understand tax credits in you and I disagree apparently the tax credits are federal funding but will you as secretary of education who is just said you will not allow children to be discriminated by race religion trans gender said data sexual orientation we you guaranteed to make it to the children of this country that however funded this program that is in your budget that is five billion dollars of taxpayer money when it is rolled out in states will you guarantee that every single school will have a non discrimination policy in order to qualify for that o'connor's women this is not proposed to be a federal program this is a proposed to be a federal tax credit that doesn't leave you see and not let me finish it the the the legislation is specifically for states to create programs that are going to meet the needs of the most vulnerable and needy students you know where's went right back to where we are right back to the reality of the fact that this program is to be implemented and designed at the state level voluntarily contributed to my life try several taxpayers so I'm going to be clear that you have corrected the record when you said to me that U. S. secretary of education would ensure that this program would only go to schools with non discrimination policies that is no longer stands this is the state's choice thank you you will not do that as secretary of education ma'am may I just suggest that you're you're you're mixing up and you're not staying clear on the purpose of the program which is to help students get a great education or your IT anyways it's for them to say that you would stand up for kids is appalling and you really should resign congresswoman Herrera Beutler this is a repair C. span radio programming from Thursday WCS be or from Washington thank you madam chair I would love to have a little bit more clarification on opportunity scholarship or the the the the federal freedom opportunity choice program because I do want to make sure it's on the record very clearly whether it's a new program or whether it's federal funding and whether there are strings attached and and actually to whether by somehow you know when I read it recognizes treasuries program but is there some way that this is not under the laws of the land our civil rights or constitutional right somehow a bridge was started this program it let me respond to that directly first no civil rights are not abridged in any way period what this does is it it's not a new program to be administered at the federal level it's merely a vehicle to effectively and efficiently get voluntary contributions directly to scholarship granting organizations as decided by states that choose to participate with the idea that they're going to turn around and create one or more programs that are going to specifically address the needs of K. twelve students in their state so no more than giving money to Planned Parenthood which is a five oh one see three or your church which is tax exempt is I mean this is no more federal funding that it is any money the correct right because churches are federally funded correct right correct I think there's a pretty big divide there the others kids of a court has gone down so that the other thing is is it going up or down the other thing I wanted to ask about is is there are there are opportunities in the department with regard to encouraging students to participate in dual credit programs like running start that's one way I think we're going to help them with their college costs well I think our proposal is to dramatically increase funding for career and technical education and I think importantly this comes at a time when states have been writing their Perkins five plans and are both getting ready to implement it many stiff I've visited a lot of schools that have fledgling dual enrollment programs many that want to have many more and expand them dramatically I expect that that's going to can be continued to be a growing reality and certainly those places that are being forward leaning and recognizing the opportunities for their students are going to get that right thank you congresswoman Frankel thank you I do I just wanna **** I'm gonna follow up on is Clark's question first Tigers has had one of my colleagues compared the tax credit to a tax deduction I think it's a big difference I mean you would agree with that a tax credit is you take your certain percentage of what you own and you instead of pay that to the federal government you're giving it to a private school Democrat Lois Frankel you get to give it directly effectively and efficiently to arrive at school not to a private school it's always scholarship granting organizations okay to risk unless that that five oh one see three got it and nonprofit scholarship granting organization and is state a state that chooses to participate exactly so you decide Hey I'm career and technical education for the state of Florida I'm from they've been they've been having this program and very successful not very successfully fact in fact I just I just read an article where three bags that had been contributing have now pulled out because they found that they were a hundred fifty six schools in Florida that are discriminated against people with who are LGBTQ cell I just he he's going to say where we have a different philosophy I just I don't want to say this I I think it is a mistake I believe for you to come in here to cut six million dollars to ask for kind of six billion dollars at a public education and then at the same time asked us our **** Congress to set up a program so that whether it's a corporation or person a total of five billion dollars can now go and send it to the federal government to pay taxes to some scholarship program that they could put money into a private institution that discriminates against people so I think that's a mistake man wasn't wasn't education about kids okay yes education has about I have been the great equalizer in life is is a good public education yeah one other thing I want to say which is this I am very disappointed that I was trying to say this nicely okay I'm very disappointed that you feign ignorance today about a dangerous new policy on about on campus violence I'm very very worried about that and I'm really I don't understand why you could call me and I'm not sure about it I told you we have not released the file role and I would not be appropriate for me to comment okay thank you I yield back public education is the great equalizer and the reason the federal government has a role in public education with the guarantee that children were protected that opportunities were available that there was equality and equity of the educational delivery systems Democrat Bonnie Watson Coleman it's not about alternatives to that system we have a responsibility to make that system work for all the children and it concerns me I ask you a question how do you reconcile the disproportionate discipline of minority students in school dispensing the satyr and even the arresting of a six year old in in in in schools were out your
