W B Z T V's Christina Rex talks with those most closely impacted by the terror attack. I don't think Austin deserves this tonight. She saw the devastating injuries firsthand. At Devo led the manhunt in Watertown as police chief Malita Aeryn. John Doe's husband, Carlos became a symbol of heroism after the attacks, and Rob Wheeler had just finished his first Boston marathon. He turned around to help save lives. It's pathetic. It's sad. It's just really. I just had enough. Now The decision is up to prosecutors toe, let Tsarnaev stay in maximum security prison or to go back to court to try and sentence him to death.

"You know for ten years I was a high school teacher high school history teacher, and I look forward to the beginning of school year, every single one of those years and I could not imagine not being able to do my job well. That was a few years ago. Things have changed now. We have this pandemic. A crisis that we have a lot of schools, a lot of states that are afraid to reopen the center ring of conservative circus. We add the secretary of Education in the United. States Betsy, Devos and Secretary Devos. Does it appear to you as it appears to me that this thing is political, and that Democrats want to rob our kids of a good education. Well Good Morning James We know that kids need to be in school and that they've lost mumps of learning this spring in all too many cases, and we know that kids can go back to school safely. It can be done safely, and in fact, more and more studies show that kids are actually stoppers of the disease, and they don't get it and transmit it themselves, so we should be in. In. A posture of the default should be getting back to school kids in person in the classroom, and for those who have an underlying condition or some concern that keeps them from that. They still have to be able to learn full-time. We cannot afford to have kids missing and losing more and more months of education. Is there anything that the CDC has identified as a reason not to open these schools up? No none at all. In fact, quite the opposite. All of the medical experts are continuing to say that kids should be back in school. They should be back in their learning environments, and in fact for children's health, it's important for them to be in school for almost all of them to be in a classroom and with peers and with their teachers, and as you know as a former. Former teacher, there's nothing more important than that that were poor that relationship and that and that you know what what results in social emotional growth and development from being in school with peers. This is one of the things I think. A lot of people are very concerned about the impact of that. Not Being School is having on on these kids in the center ring of.

"There are now three point two million cases and nearly one hundred thirty six thousand fatalities here in the US. On Saturday Texas and North Carolina reported their highest single day increases in new cases and hospitalizations in Florida, where cases have been on the rice. Memorial, day weekend Governor Rhonda Santa's ordered public schools to reopen next month. He's among the multiple Republican governors bowing to trump who's now threatening to cut off federal funding for schools if they don't reopen for potentially dangerous in person classes. This is the same donald trump who, for the first time during this pandemic finally wore mass in public. He wore during a visit with wounded soldiers at Walter Reed. Medical Center where masks are required for entry. It only took them five months and one hundred and thirty, five thousand American deaths, and begging and pleading from his own party administration. But he's still fighting the science. Claiming that the CDC guidelines for reopening too strict. But the CDC director refused to give in to trump's demands to revise the guidelines in this morning education. Secretary Betsy Devos who has a reminder, does not have a background in either education or medicine said it's time to go back to school. Kids need to get back to school. They need to get back in the classroom. Families need for kids to get back in the classroom and it can be done safely. I know for a fact that there are many schools that have been working hard to put together their plans for moving ahead, and we want to see every school district every state, doing the same thing to say not why we can't do but what we're going to do, and what we can do were country of action. We're a country of doers. Okay, let me. Leaders who can work hard and figure this out?

If America's schools don't re-open, Louis did not say what funding he would pull. Some school districts have considered offering a mix of in person and virtual classes in the fall, due to the corona virus and Vice President Mike Pence, said Wednesday that in certain situations that may be acceptable. There may be some states and local communities that that given cases or positivity in that community may adjust to either a certain set of days or certain limitations, and we'll be very respectful of that. Fence also said the CDC is revising its guidelines for schools after President Trump complained that the agencies guidance was too expensive and impractical.

Solving hard problems and pursuing your passions.

"My name is Matt Devo. And the CEO of Buddha LLC. I was writing a lot of my own programs I grew up in a very rural area, so you know it didn't have exposure to some of the early BS systems, and actually with my first computer did not have a disk drive or any storage medium, so I would spend all my time programming, know all of the available memory on that commodore sixty four with different applications and had written menu application that would kinda. Let me jump between the different sections, and then I would cry every time we lost power, which was quite frequently because I. had you know would lose everything that I had coded into the device minute was powered off. I was lucky again. I was in a very rural area. There are nineteen people in my graduating class, and there is nothing offered from a computer science perspective. But when I expressed interest, my high school math teacher actually go in the summer to learn how to teach computer science, and then would come back and teach me. In the interest of adapted over time when I got to college focused on not only computer science, but also national security studies became very interested in how things work and taking them apart, and you know that was kind of my early entree into Kinda true hacking, an looking at other people's programs and other people's systems, and I happened to see this convergence between the two topics that I love, and if you think back to the early nineties, really the combination of political science. Science and computer science was all around statistics and analysis, and I saw this new career field, or at least I hoped based on what I saw was increasing use of computer technology in critical things so critical infrastructure, society, finance, etc, and then the inherent vulnerability of those systems, because I was capable of hacking them. The friends that I was meeting were capable of hacking them and then if you combine that with my National Security Focus, I saw this as a new national security. Bull boats I started writing on that topic back in Nineteen, Ninety two, and attracted a tremendous amount of attention to myself, because as one of the early people to highlight the risks of what would become information warfare cyber war, so I was viewed a little bit by some of the folks in the national security circles and intelligence community as well as kind of the equivalent of the KID building an atomic weapon in his garage I was coming to the same conclusions and researching the same things that they had identified at the same time as this key national security risk that they were trying to keep under wraps for the most part. There was quite a bit of friction at the time you know for example in nineteen, ninety three I graduated from Undergrad and win straight into Grad School, and got a masters, or was pursuing a master's in national security studies in political science and the political science team at my graduate school basically told me that the topic of information warfare was not. Not Valid from a thesis perspective, so it would have been easy to give up at that point, but I was persistent, and I had folks who were advocating for me and telling me look at issues of command and control warfare, or look at this, or we're kind of giving me pointers to kind of redirect my research. It also gave me some great. I. I built a red team that that emulated the adversary during classified coalition military exercises, and during that red team was the first person to hack into systems on an aircraft carrier. While it was at sea, we did that with a nuclear submarine or these very headline, invoking the work we're doing at the time wasn't covered in the press, but internally at the classified level within Dod, these wars significant wakeup calls. My favorite part is solving hard problems I like being in the room when we're confronting something that seems almost unconfrontational. And working through the process of how to we adequately addressed that. So I really thrive on that. Kinda read teamer perspective of give me something that you think is one of your most difficult things to achieve most difficult realities that you face, and let's build some approaches for how you do are able to take advantage of. You have the interest and the passion. By all means we have the need within the community. We have a workforce that just doesn't have the numbers by way of the professionals in it so I would encourage folks. You have the interest get involved. You have to engage in self learning. certifications are great. It's great to get on the job experience, but I always like to look at the folks who built basement lab, or set up their own aws cloud infrastructure, and we're hacking against that, so I would encourage them to take advantage of the opportunities that exist for that self directed learning as well.

His explorations of subcultures in the areas of music and sexuality have resulted in images. That are raw an intimate. His latest book leather boys gathers images of a segment of the gay community in and around the DC area. The story of how he gained access and his process over the years provide some valuable information for anyone taking on a long-term personal project regardless of the World. They are hoping to explore this. Is your body an ex and welcome back to the candidate frame and it was good to see. It's been a long time yet. Has I'm trying to think I guess the last time I saw you This past summer at focus on the story Ryan. I'm looking forward to talking to you. We met a couple of years back. And you're always been on my radar but it's just like as with as with so many people who I put down on my list sometimes years before I finally get them on the show but I'm glad we're funding hearing chance to sit down and chat. I do want to remind you ever. I've been on candid frame before. Are you on the panel? Yeah Yeah at Miami Straight Photography Festival but I think about it in terms of one to one conversations. Sure Yeah I had just a taste now. I get the full meal I guess. Okay okay scared me for a bit getting ready but no comment background. I found out that he come from a family. Did A lot of traveling. Your Dad was a diplomat. You were born in the Philippines. That is that is correct. I was actually adopted in the Philippines. Which is interesting and I'm definitely not Filipino. So yeah was adopted there. My family was with the State Department and my dad travel to various countries around the world. All the way up through the end of my college experience. So I've lived in Thailand Denmark Moscow London and then visited various countries for like a month or a week or whatever the entire time. Did you have any any idea in terms of your birth be? We have information get to you so I actually. When my dad passed away a couple years ago she left that to me. But I still haven't looked at it weren't well I you know. Part of it is is. My parents were my parents. I've felt adopted or not. You know it was just something. I don't know man should ask my my therapist about that but I just haven't I haven't really like I feel like I don't want to give up on. The idea of my parents are my real parents because they adopted me. And that's who cared for me you know. I'm a little scared to find out who my real parents are. What if there is life changing information there? You know who knows yeah? That's fascinating especially the fact that it's just sitting in a letter somewhere. That's well it's not. It's not just a letter. It's a whole packet with a bunch of official documents and stuff so so doing all this traveling. How did he sort of color? Your perspective in terms of when you finally came in critter life yourself here in the in the states. Well I have to say that little funny story about my first time that I remember in the United States was coming back for first grade and I could speak Danish better than it could speak English and I was held back a grade because my English language skills were not that good and then from there. I went to Thailand. I believe you know from there. I went to Moscow. Actually so I have I think a more of a kind of a like a world view of and I was friends a people of all different kinds of cultures classes races. What have you I would say was a very wholesome upbringing in terms of Having kind of a global perspective and in your early twenties you're part of a of a of a punk band music start becoming occurred of your early life so that's another a funny story I remember being in Moscow and I guess the sex pistols had come out. And this is I. Think nineteen seventy six and I guess there was a article in the New York Times or The Washington Post because we used to get that at the embassy in Moscow Mama's reading about it and she's like Chris. You wouldn't listen to that stuff would you and then and then on our First trip our trip to Helsinki Finland. We got to go to a record store in the first album. Picked up was was a clash album. Actually I didn't WanNA bring home a sex pistols but I'd done a little bit of kind of asking around the embassy like what did some of the other punk bands picked up a clash in devo album and ever since then I was kinda hooked but because I was traveling and nobody I knew played an instrument. I didn't even play an instrument and it wasn't until I got to college that I met up with some people that played instruments like one of my roommates play guitar. Who's really good? He's still actually playing today on the Jam Band Circuit and anyway so one night. We're hanging out late. It leaves the house and they're like hey play the space and I'm like I don't even know what to do. There's like follow the dots man and so I just followed what they were doing with their hands. And then I was like you. Know the hippy. Music is okay. But I'm really into punk rock. And then when I've moved back to DC after college I met up with some of the former members of the band scream. I don't scream was a big discord banned. They were banned. I really enjoyed in high school early college. And that's the band where David Grohl came from and so this is some of the other members one of the other members from scream their original drummer before girl was in the span. It was like man. This guy's awesome. I get to play with him. And that's basically how I jumped into that in. How long were you into? I played in punk bands from ninety three to two thousand and on. I'm still playing in my neighborhood so I've just been continuing that I still I still. I still play a little bit in a Plano. Reggae DUB reggae band in my in my neighborhood but I was playing. I started my own record label. I put out like twenty plus CDs with international distribution all around the world toward all over the the. Us many times so yeah. I like to travel see new places. Meeting people were using a camera. Did you document those times? Not at all? It wasn't until the birth of my son that I got a camera and that was because of my wife she was like we need to get a camera and at that time it was like I don't know if we can afford it and whatever so I got a cannon power shot and this this had been like two thousand six or so. My son was born in two thousand and five so it was a little bit after that. We we still. I think the I felt. We had the IPHONE camera which is like we need a better camera so and then are basically read the manual and then I went out just shooting around my neighborhood or wherever. Just kinda figure out figuring out all the settings and that's where I figured out like what motion blur could do and stuff like that shutter drag and that was really cool and the entire throughout my entire punk rock career. I was always going into the library or on the Internet. You later in the late nineties to find just kind of like raw images to use for flyers and that's how I kind of discovered who who we g was and Dion rbis and stuff. I didn't really look at them through photographers. I was looking more through a punk rockers. I like going. You know what? What are the photos that kind of excite me or that are weird a different? That will look really good on a flyer in peak people's interest and so I spent a lot of time in the Arlington County Public Library in their photo book section. Just kinda going through trying to find stuff and yeah and so. That's kind of so I had my and I even bought like some photo books to just to use for flyers so wasn't until I actually started work in a cameras. Like hey man I could probably make photos like those guys did in those books.

I you were just on the podcast a couple of months ago and I try not to go back to Previous guests sooner than say six months but the situation that we're in right now with the with covert nineteen sort of demanded that you come back. We had on Reverend William Barber talking about the racial disparities that we've now been forced to reckon with with the corona virus. And you sent me a message. Reminding me that everything that you wrote about in Europe antastic book dying of Whiteness is playing out in this corona virus and the covert nineteen pandemic. Talk about that well. The book I wrote Diana Whiteness was was really. I mean I who knew at the time but what I was talking about in. That book was about the ways in which there were kind of undercurrents of white racial resentment that shaped Attitudes among politicians and certain white voters particularly in mid in America. That am caused them to what you would think. Vote against their own biological self interests and so the story. I told him that book was a story. About how for example and working class and lower income white voters rejected the affordable. Care Act. Which would have helped them a lot because they thought that immigrants and minorities were gaming the system and I looked at The rise of guns as symbols of kind of white self protection. And you know that was. That was a a book that I thought was kind of how to beginning a middle and an end it was kind of a warning of the lengths to which when white working class voters could either have underlying racism or be manipulated to vote in support of wealthy donors in corporations but against their own life stance. And it's just been on steroids since this pandemic started. I mean everything from in you know. It seems like the best possible for many red states would be to expand Medicaid if people health and transferred this moment of dire need and you would think people would be rallying to get Medicaid. It would help them. Not just medically would help them. Financially not incur bankruptcies pay less for medications but instead trump has been actively actively not expanding Medicaid and and people have been supporting him and the same thing with guns are the the gun story as is eight hundred percent rise in gun sales in some states in in in conjunction with this idea And and so kind of across the board this idea and and of course brought to bear most recently by these protests are across across many red states where people are literally out there saying and we we want to support trump even if it costs us in our family members and our communities days and months and years of our lives and and the racial currents are just. I mean just absolutely unavoidable. Okay so let's let's start with the with those protests because as I watched the video coming from Lansing Michigan and other places and people is openly. Define what we all knew when they were protesting to be true that the corona virus is spread. If you are not socially distancing if you're not wearing a mask if you're shaking hands if you have any kind of physical contact and these votes were acting in total defiance of everything of everything we know up the is it. Are they being irrational in what they're doing or are they being rational in that support for Donald Trump and resentment of and racial resentment are enough for them to ignore science? Well I think there are a couple of things that are important to keep in mind about this process. I just always make clear when I talk about them. That those protests are not all all white Americans. They're not all trump supporters. That's a kind of vote very vocal very threatening fringe group. That has gotten a lot of validation from from trump and a lot of funding from the Devos family and other places and so in a way. Because we're all stuck at home. It's hard to see that there are a lot of people in red states who are terrified of what those protests represent Democrats and Republicans and so first of all. I think it's unfortunate just given the way we're all many of us at at home right now and it looks like that's every Republican out there and that's not the case that being said I try to avoid saying that anything is irrational You know I think would my research. I came to realize that there are there are deep and ideology said that makes sense to people and I think this idea of government. Overreach this idea that Social PROGRAMS ARE GONNA benefit immigrants and minorities and and at the expense of of white people. do these ideas are very very ingrained and I think that also when you when you combine that with a moment of real despair this I this moment of you know not just a more the risk of mortality but also this fear of you know real real economic trauma that people back on their deepest their deepest fears. We've seen that you know the rise of Nazi Germany on down that people when they're who've been there the most desperate it's not like they become the most centrist They they become the most terrified. And so it. At a moment like this people fall back on extreme ideologies. It's not like everybody's GonNa come to the middle and I think trump has been very artful at manipulating those anxieties and shifting blame race. That I think are very dangerous but it's not I. It's not irrational. If it's based in a particular reading of reality and and also Lib reality for a lot of people you know one of the big stories to come out of out of the corona virus coverage is the the health disparities disparities in impact that overwhelmingly the victims of Corona virus have been Americans and other people of color particularly African Americans. What role do you think that plays in the mindset of people who might be looking in saying you know that's affecting them and so therefore I don't need to be concerned about this? Well I think certainly that's been framing an edge of course true right in other words. Many of the people who died in this early phase are emigrants of members of minority groups. People who have to either have to go to work In in conditions are live in areas. Where there's a lot of density I certainly think that that led to a feeling of kind of white and bits ability especially in the people. I've been interviewing people in this idea that oh no. This won't be because this is kind of black and Brown problem. I certainly think fueled part of the feeling of invincibility surrounding mess But it'll be interesting to see. I mean I think there are two caveats that narrative of I is that I guarantee you. A lot of these deaths in rural white America are being under reported. Just because there's not great data gathering and so I do think there's a lot of despair in in rural areas that we're not hearing about and and I think the other point is because of these protests and particularly when these red states start opening up if if they do which seems insane. We're GONNA see a lot of of working class white very sick and dying and so it'll be interesting to see what happens to that narrative when it really starts to hit home for people

I mean, there's still people, they still love the love. They still have things. I love they like they have feelings in this makes me back to the US government. Were you for you? What was her name, Dave? Oh, that's Davis. You've say to say what you say h s. Are you? Sorry, Betsy DeVos. Thank you. Devos for you had the old the DASS ity to stop funding. Special Olympics are cut the funds by seventeen and a half million, which is not shit for the United States. You guys been that in a fucking second. Let me spend I pulled this up, which is interesting yet. So it was like seventeen point six million, which is nothing that they that they were gonna cut that was in Trump's original plan, and then Betsy DeVos was the one that's actually like advocating it, and she got a blonde shift for this taught tons. And she stood behind the decision, so she said still stood behind. I'm still gonna go for me that they're not protecting their own fucking people. What was her battle our battle with? It was that it was all ready funded through donations. It's not enough. I'm not agreeing with that was heard that was her. Well, that's what she yeah. That's what she thought I pulled it up, just out of curiosity. How much does Trump's proposed border wall? Cost twenty one point six billion dollars. One thing that's hard to hear seventeen point four billion go fuck yourself. Your that's like that's like go fuck yourself as like a like a. I don't even know like a sliver of a mile of fence. It's almost like it's. They just left a tiny piece off the end of it. It's almost like the wound up their dick and slapped Special Olympics people in the face with would that goes back to point them. It's his field. Not part of the society's eyes. Right. Yeah. That's what does that to these people with disabilities. Lynn that takes a huge toll on them. And then they get the depressed in later, come suicide. This is happening though, quite a bit with different communities. Like another thing I saw was Jon Stewart was actually advocating our. Nine eleven first responders, and they were sick from inhaling all the fumes and the, the smoke, like they had a lot of long health effects. Yes. And the government stopped funding them. So it's like, you know, people like nine eleven like are people who fought, you know, now, you take this one this one, this one, whether it's whether it's Special Olympics or nine eleven. I watched John Stewart. I wish we talked about this on the fucking video..

"Let me introduce Hilary Shelton. He's senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the end of the Lacey pe- he's director of the ACP is Washington bureau. Hilary Shelton. Thank you for joining us. I appreciate it ethics. Great to be with you. So tell me what you're hearing in this conversation in what your take so far. If he were to give education secretary, Betsy DeVos grade, what would it be? Well, let's let me hold off on the great for just a minute Matali about some of the fixes and then we can decide great accordingly. Okay, we'll make this evidence-based, took out like that. Thank you, MS. The number of concerned pad as Mr. Voss's gone into to serve as secretary of education. I have to be honest until you and transparent as well and say that the NWC p opposed her confirmation because our feelings concerns were that are backed bounded experienced into lack the expertise necessary to handle issues a public education from pre k. through twelve. And of course, other big issues for the NWC Pierre concerns like higher education. I began hearing some conversation along those lines as well as the about the affordability of higher education. And he was talking about private higher education in institutions and the like, and some concerns we pay along those lines as well. And the n. AA CPA is also involved in a suit against DeVos. Right? Yes. Why don't you tell us about that? Because this is about civil rights laws right in the way they're the the way that they're imposed. Absolutely. Absolutely. So the NWC Pia Fata lawsuit along that friends at the national federation of the blind and the council of pant attorney. He's an advocates against US secretary of education and the department of education office of civil rights in the US district court in Maryland for the departments because the department road back, I mean, the civil rights enforcement regulations, we thought were crucial to making sure that every American regardless of race, ethnicity, points of national origin. Any other differences are even disability would have an opportunity to get a high quality education. We concerned the department of education pretty much summarily change the policies allowing for the dismissal of civil rights complaints, and the ability of organizations to appealed their rulings. So what that means is that we've actually cut out -tunities to make sure that it's known if an institution is discriminating because of wants differences and other challenges within our society and very well organizations should have an opportunity to file lawsuits when necessary and to appeal decisions. But the changes that have happened now at the department. Of education through its office of civil rights actually moved to make it much more difficult and even a limited opportunities along those lines. We're actually hold on Hillary because I wanna bring max into this conversation and max. What are you hearing an in Hillary's concerns about enforcement of civil rights regulations in the department of education? I mean, these things are are a balancing act, and I think the balance became way out of wack during the Obama administration. Right? He's talking about making it easier to Smith civil rights complaints, which you should be able to dismiss a civil rights complaint if you've spent years and years investigating and found no evidence of wrongdoing, but under the way the Obama administration do these investigations, certainly something like school discipline, it's it didn't matter whether or not you actually found any evidence of discrimination. These so-called investigations were actually an enforcement tool to core school districts to change their policies. So I think that these things are a balancing act. It's not about rights versus no rights. It's about how. Do we, you know, balance trying to make sure that students have a an appeal if they feel that they've been screwed it against without letting that become car 'blanche to have the department of education, rewrite local policies. So Hilary Shelton if it's about a balancing act, your concern is the balance is gonna little bit too far in the other direction. It's well. That's certainly what he's arguing, but I would argue that quite frankly, will be done now with these changes, it means it without they made these changes. Let me just back up for just a second without going through the legal required notice in comedy period, the would prevent the piano, the organizations to voice our opinion before they made these public changes..

"So during the September speech at George Mason University, she announced a new approach to campus sexual misconduct. DeVos repeatedly emphasized the plight of the accused here. She is one rape. Is one too many. One assault is one too many. One aggressive act of harassment is one too many. One person denied due process is one too many, though a secretary of education, Betsy DeVos. Let me introduce Maxine and he's a senior fellow at the Manhattan institute where he focused focuses on education policy Maxine and welcome back to one point. It's great to have you to be Anthony. Anthony, I know you've been listening along to this this conversation. How would you sum up so far? What Betsy DeVos has brought as secretary of education? Yeah, I think US early in the are with the grade would be I would give her a b minus. I think that she is taking the federal government's role in a more modest and quit, frankly, productive direction. But unfortunately, the things that she is doing require a lot of finesse and explanation and and kind of power persuasion that she hasn't quite been able to to muster. So I think that while what she's been doing, it's been substantively productive. I think she's unfortunately kind of discredited a lot of the, the, the reasons behind the, the approaches he's bringing to the table. And how so are you saying that it's essentially, this is a this is a question of of messaging as opposed to policy commitment? Yeah. I mean, I think that it's not as though it is only this kind of far right wing that was opposed to the Obama administration's. Very heavy handed approach and education. You know, the only major bipartisan Bill of the Obama administration was the every student succeeds act in which Republicans Democrats got together and said, the federal government has gone way too far in education. We need to trust teachers. We need to let them figure out these decisions. We need to trust local school boards. We need to rein in the power of the department of education, and that's something that was overwhelmingly approved in congress, but it's a message that she can't quite carry forward without becoming a lightning rod. So in your view, Maxine reining in the power of the department of education. Can you point to one specific effort that Betsy DeVos has made where you know there is a concrete effort to rein in the power of the department of education that makes sense to you even if she hasn't carried it out or delivered a clear message on why it's important? Yeah, absolutely. So one very clear example is what's called the significant disproportionality regulation and the yes. And there's a lot of this kind of language in the world of education. But go ahead, say it one more time. I just want to the significant disproportionality regulation, significant disproportionality regulation, explain that. So the Obama administration looked at the statistics around race and special education and thought that African American students were over represented in special education services and therefore wanted to create a formula that would pressure states to reduce this alleged overrepresentation. Right. Problem is research. The came out after that regulation was put forward says that actually, once you sufficiently control for enough factors there actually significantly underrepresented, do you have a regulation that's in place based on faulty data that would be pushing states to further serve already underserved demographic and the secretary as you know, thus far put that on hold and should rewrite it, but in the process hasn't been able to, you know, make a case as to why this numbers based approach it as. Misguided and she's just kind of gotten flack for, you know, ignoring potential discrimination over critics, say around special education at indication. Let's take some calls.

"Faulting on their loans. We're going to these four profit colleges, and so the Obama administration created these rules that said, you know, if you're graduating students that are not making a lot of money and or taking on too much debt that they can't repay. We're gonna shut you down. We're going to cut off your federal money and and we reported last week that Betsy DeVos is planning to repeal that rule to sort of let you know for profit colleges operate is that used to write and this these these rules Obama wanted to put these rules into effect after the collapse of to for profit colleges, Carinthian college in IT technical institute which collapsed. They collapsed in two thousand fifteen in two thousand sixteen, and they were found to have misled students with false advertising misleading claims that kind of stuff. So these were rules essentially to protect students from this kind these kinds of alleged abuses. Right. Exactly. That's cool. We're saying, you know, if you. Through this program, you're, you have a ninety, nine percent guarantee of getting a job and students were enrolling in taking on huge amounts of debts, and those things were just turning out to be flatly not true. And this is also led to lawsuits by a whole bunch of attorneys-general across the country. We're going to be hearing from one of them at the bottom of this hour. But essentially, what is the case that these attorneys general are making. Well, they are saying they're suing Betsy DeVos because she is trying to repeal both the the game full employment rule, which would shut down some of these worst. The worst of the worst colleges, you know, the ones that really are not graduating people with any kind of earnings power. And then there's another rule that I think we'll get to in a moment that that she has sort of rolled back where students who went to colleges that defrauded them or allowed to actually ask the government to forgive their loans, and she's a sort of tried to make that process a little tougher. Right. And why is that? What's the argument in favor of making that process tougher for students who feel that they were defrauded? Well, there's a serious concern. You know the the money on the line is taxpayer money that these students are taking on forgiving, all of it sort of willy nilly is really going to cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of not billions of dollars. And so you have to be very careful. The other thing is that the government really tries to recoup money from colleges once they've once they've forgiven loans. And some of these four prophets were saying, well, the the process that you're using to determine whether we've defrauded or students is arbitrary. We're not really getting a chance to show the case that it was. We weren't lying, but it was that, you know, we're being wrongly targeted. And so some of the schools were being asked to pay sums of money that they said they couldn't afford. Now, another issue, the department of education physician interim guidance on how colleges should investigate and penalize sexual assault under title nine, which prohibits gender, discrimination in education. Can you talk a little bit about how she is dealing trying to make those changes? Absolutely. So for years, you know, President Obama had set out these rules governing how campus sexual assault cases could go on college campuses and the. A lot of, you know, specifically accused students, but also more broadly of of lawyers who were saying the process that you're setting up is really one sided and unfair. You know, it didn't some cases the rules. Let victims you know, ask questions of their, you know of the people they were accusing, but not vice versa. And so you know a lot of lawyers and accused student advocates were saying they needed to sort of level the playing field to give accused students more rights for the process. So it's fair to say that Betsy DeVos enter policies. Anthropology proposals are controversial. There disliked by a lot of folks who work in education..

"We saw the the clip coming in secretary of ben carson i mean this cabinet is not exactly thrilling well when the president said on the campaign trail that he would bring the best people and with the most experienced we now have a pretty stark just juxtaposition and i would say to add to what noah said that part of the challenge for betsy devos is that even though as a campaign donor um and republican a big republican heavy hitter in michigan she and her family put a lot of money into pushing the school choice initiatives in that state in the direction that that state his taken uh she hasn't been in educator and she hasn't been on the ground um as an educator even now when she acknowledged that you know she hadn't been into these under performing schools and so she herself is in a pretty tough position there but you would expect that she would have a lot of data at hand just because michigan in many ways has been kind of a testing ground a lab for the school choice and what's happened there um fair or not because you know we were starting for example in detroit with some pretty poor performing schools but those schools are still really underperforming and she should have at least the basic amount of data at her finger tips to know that that is a question she's going to get if she walks into an interview with like a little odd odd thing.
