"Listen, this is to tell the truth mind me, baby. In a park is just old yeller. The truth is the Atlanta Braves are going to climb the mountain. You get to the door, reach for the door, trip and post their kids out on the doorknob because that's where people who sport cheese do in a single Georgia. This is the town of true London right here, baby. And the Georgia board allows them Atlanta brains are just delightful. There are difficult in your life, baby. And the truth is, I've already heard it. I got sources in the program telling me. This invent Bennett owns the locker room. The team is behind stenson Bennett. You got no great receivers. Your best receiver is a walk on. I'm sorry. You just don't have to playmakers at the end of the day to deal with Alabama to deal with Ohio State or deal with Oklahoma. Ask the purple people eaters of the minnesotan Vikings who had Alan page John Marshall and a dominant and couldn't win a championship. Because they couldn't score enough. Kirby smart is still light years behind when it comes to catching up and the office of game and it'll cost Georgia at the end Paul. Now here's another truth for you, baby. Coach hairline down at all this looking good, but it's still creep off. There's still a treat. And here's another two important call. Any playoff committee that puts sensibility and you tell me if you agree with me. Any playoff committee that Cincinnati and the top four is going to have absolutely no respect from people and fans in America. Do you agree with that or not? I agree, legend, but I've watched this charade over the years, and I think they will tomorrow, but I don't think they will at the end if things go according to play. Hey, thank you for the call. Appreciate it. Frank is up next. Hey, Frank, you're on the air. Hey, Paul, how are you doing today? We are well. Thank you. That was pretty nice of legend to reference the purple people. Oh, yeah, for our fans up here in Minnesota. Absolutely. For that. But grant would be proud. Yeah, thankfully but still kicking, but he's getting up there. Is he still around? That's amazing. I'm glad to hear that. Yeah, early 90s, but still doing all right. I'm glad to hear. Just wanted to weigh in Paul on the Dan Mullen situation. Yeah, what do you think? Well, you guys had a great guest on last week that talked about leadership. And that time made a really fascinating, interesting comment when he said something on paraphrasing, but something to the fact that leaders often have a blind spot for their blind spot. Right. To me, that Dan Mullen, his blind spot is he doesn't handle pressure very well. And his blind spot is he doesn't understand that weakness. So as he goes along his behavior week the week gets very inconsistent, he gets very defensive, very prickly. His press conference has become terrible. And he just digs himself deeper and deeper into his own situation with his behavior. He really can't get out from under his own his own way at times. Yeah, that was Ken Smith Meyer, who said that, and it really is one of the most interesting things I was. It really was. That was very good, but it made me think about Mullen.

"Brad raffensperger told W AB's Jim burris this week that it's extremely troubling that two Fulton county elections employees were able to allegedly shred about 300 voter registration applications state law requires officials to preserve documents related to primary or general elections for 24 months Now raffensperger is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to intervene This after his office opened its own investigation despite Fulton's election director firing both employees involved Monday Here's raffensperger on the state's next steps Interviewing all the people involved in that not just the two people that actually shredded the documents of the determinator But also any of the other employees in the office and then their managers and the managers manager You've been critical a Fulton county in the past and that's been no exception with this instance calling the elections team and director talking about their malfeasance and kind of their inability to do their jobs What about this specifically is indicative of that to you Well obviously the haven't done a strong enough job on employee training Every employee of the state law says that you need to keep your records all records available for up to 24 months after an election We haven't even had this election yet And they have already just started disposing of the applications And so extremely troubling and obviously it goes back to the management team has not done adequate employee training The director of Fulton county elections immediately contacted your office Fulton commission chair rob Pitt's contacted Fulton county's district attorney What more do you think could have been done in the moment once this was discovered What didn't Fulton county do that they should have It's good that both the Fulton county reported the incident and then also that additionally that the phone county district attorney is looking into it Now you're looking at the action for those violations those infractions what does that look like What are those former employees What will they be facing but also then election boards and also the election director many times are part of that total investigation So we'll dig into all that and we'll bring that before the state election board for their determination By the end of the day the buck does stop with the county election official The director of elections is in charge of that in charge of trade making sure that all of us employees follow the procedures And so we will just have to look at the totality of what happened And then we can give the state election board that whole picture What would you say to the 300 or so unnamed voters potentially who are affected by this If you filled out an application and haven't gotten your official documentation that you are registered voter go ahead and go to my voter page at the Secretary of State's website SOS GA gov and go ahead and look up your name and see if you're on my vote of page If you are then you're good to go Make sure that your correct actress is on there at the same time But if your name's not on there then please let us know immediately Fulton county commission chairman rob Pitts told us the counties response was proactive and he calls criticism from the Secretary of State political He says it's still unclear why the employees shredded the forms We had non grew expensive training with the poll workers In fact we'd even had a mock election to walk through on Friday morning and so and I always say that you know there's no such thing as a perfect election Something can all ways go wrong But we were we thought we were totally prepared and we are totally prepared But that being said there can always be an equipment malfunction or human era or a disclaimer employee or even sabotage So in this case we have no idea what the district attorney is going to come up with But the point is when it came to our attention my intention mister Barron's attention we immediately contacted the appropriate authorities And so that's why we are now So there's reason to believe that the shredding of these applications was intentional Well we don't know that I'm just racking my brain trying to understand why with new employees do it Why They were a protocol in place that you saw ballot for an African was not legible You put it in another town called supervised take a look at it Can you understand how this may look bad though to some people from the outside Even if you were there you can not control what an employee will do every minute of every day And that's exactly what happened We don't know what the motivation was Was there human error whether malith and mine was now famous or the sabotage We don't know But I think we will know soon but they've been terminated That was fought in county commission chairman rob Pitt and earlier Georgia Secretary of State Brad raffensperger speaking to our Jim burruss earlier this week Let's go to a vote of a different kind but still very controversial The Georgia board of regents which oversees the state's university system is changing its ten year process for professors As Martha Dalton told us more than a thousand professors opposed the move approved by the board on Wednesday out of concern it will hurt the state's ability to attract and keep talent Professors work for years to achieve

"Available day or night for scheduling an appointment within 24 business hours. Just a month ago, Georgia joined 40 other states that have decriminalized fully legalized or authorized medical use of marijuana. What does this mean for Georgia and for Georgians? What are the differences between CBD organic marijuana and synthetic cannabinoids? What do we know about their medicinal benefits? What research is ongoing? Today. We're exploring the world of medical marijuana with two leaders in the field. Kyle Barasch and Rabbi James Caan, both of holistic industries. After three decades as an executive in the bio pharmaceutical industry, Kyle Barrish joined Holistic Industries, one of the largest private multistate operators in medical cannabis. As chief marketing officer. His role is to research grow and nurture their emerging greenhouse and brands. Rabbi James Caan is the executive director of Liberty. Cannabis cares the social impact on corporate responsibility. Arm of holistic industries. He's an ordained rabbi. He served in a variety of positions, including senior Jewish educator at the University of Maryland Till l as as well as a director of chaplaincy. In Washington, D C. You can learn more about both of them and the company at holistic industries dot com. And so what we're gonna do is begin to the second hour. We want to help you start to understand some of the research that's being done. Um, this the changing landscape of Cannabis in terms of how it will be, how you you will approach it or experience it. Um, and with that is the role of the dispensary. And so I want to go back, Um to Rabbi James Caan before we start taking calls, and I want to get an understanding about the dispensary. And what is what is the dispensary mean to you? And what does it What is it? What's the experience? Um, that's happening on the consumer side and again. I think that for many, and especially those in Georgia who may not be familiar With the dispensary that that thought process may be leaning you more towards thinking about if you're going to go to a place to buy cannabis you're going to be about the mindset would be that of an image of a head shop and a head shop is what you call Um, for those who aren't familiar with those fairly common term, you know that kind of story in a seedy strip mall that's going to sell hookahs and rolling papers and and pipes that would be used for nothing else, but likely consumption of marijuana, except it wouldn't be solved that with that. Within that in that guise of something else so What were you hoping to see Rabbi James Caan in the way that you were going to one that experience for the consumer to be in a dispensary. Sure, you know, it's really in the name of our of our of our dispensary, which is liberty. In that we, you know, it's hokey as it sounds. We were trying to liberate the cannabis purchase experience, You know, uh, too long. Cannabis has been something that people were getting in the black market. Um, it was, you know, shady experience that could be an uncomfortable and unsafe experienced. You know, and head shops While they may be some, there's some nice ones and some seedier ones. You know they're really reflecting the values of the kind of at least from the sixties. The anti establishment subculture and we were really trying to normalize and Andy stigmatized cannabis. So when we created our dispensaries, you know we've really focused on on, you know, light silk spaces that are beautiful. That are focused on educating our customers that you don't really assume nothing about folks who come in regarding their knowledge of cannabis and and that's where we dispense cannabis and, you know, we have to comply with a variety of legislative laws and regulations from childproof bags to the number of people allowed in our stores. How much we can dispense and and from where can we make this? You know where do we get the product? Um, and so dispensaries are heavily regulated, and they're coming to Georgia in about a year. The six companies that were awarded grow licenses. Cultivation licenses also were awarded up to five dispensary licenses. So those are coming to Georgia and that's we're going to get your cannabis. Right. So with that we have a caller and hopefully if JW from Tucker is still on the line, let's bring them on. JW gentlemen for taking. Yes, sir. Thank you for taking my call. You're very welcome. I I have a child who is autistic. Her psychiatrist has prescribed for her a low grade THC oil And but she didn't know where I could. Purchased that so I contacted the Georgia Board of Pharmaceuticals, and they recommended the G B narcotics task force. Who told me that if I cross state lines to go to a state where I can legally purchase it, my daughter does have a medical marijuana card. If I go to a state that has it. If I crossed state lines with it, that's trafficking. And they recommended that you be recommended. I go back to the psychiatrist, so I'm in a conundrum here. I don't know where to get this two part to help my child. Okay. Okay, so guys mighty comment before both of you get a chance to weigh in is that you know what's particularly disturbing is that we have a state that's That's already legislated the process. But it's going to take a year to functional eyes it and yet we still have this situation. Um, so I don't know again. If you were to this crossing state lines issue, even if you cross from the state if you cross between two states, in which Um, it's decriminalized legalized. Authorized for medical. Um, is that still the same problem, But first go into like the bigger picture how you wanted to respond, but I want to make sure you get to that nuance issue. Sure. Cigarette Just one. I'll start by just saying I'm you know, I'm sorry that you're you're having this challenge and having a child with autism is it's hard enough. That adding, you know, training buying cannabis should not be this difficult. Unfortunately, you're going to have to. You're really gonna stuck position right now until those dispensaries open. Georgia has legalized the possession of can't low testing cannabis oil and you can get a card. But Georgia has up until now not provided patients out with a legal regulated. Um Location to purchase.

And closer look, continues. Now here on 90.1 WSB Atlanta's choice for NPR. I'm Rose Scott. The Georgia Board of Education, recently voted on a resolution banning the teaching of critical race theory from its public schools. Now closer look reached out to members of the board and only Tracy Nance Penley ex official Georgia Board of Education member and teacher of the Year for 2020 2021 agreed to join US. And she's not speaking on behalf of the board. She's speaking through her own reflection. She teaches fourth grade right here in Atlanta. So we should note. Miss Ness is not a voting member of the board as well. And so, Tracy. Thank you for taking time. I really appreciate it. Thank you so much, Rose. You know, part of my role as Georgia teacher of the year is to represent. Teachers, students and parents in their interest. And so it was really important for me to speak out and to continue doing so on their behalf. Let's go back a little bit. How long have you been an educator? I have been teaching for 15 years now. And you teach fourth grade correct. I teach fourth grade. Um, I started an education just running an after school program in Greenville, South Carolina for his in underserved neighborhoods, and then went on to study sociology, race and ethnicity. And sociology of education at University of Chicago. Yeah, I'm going to talk about that in a moment. I want to get back to these fourth graders. What is it about that great that you like, You know, it's really my sweet spot. The kids are still in enamored with Being together as a community and the teacher and that age they're just right for really moving from a concrete thinking to conceptual thinking, And so they start to get it. They start to see broad themes and strands across history and today's events and it's just really powerful. I love seeing them grow into their potential and seeing them find Their interests, the things that make them tick. Want to now refer to something that I read about you and this was quote it, said Tracy Nance Pendley became passionate about social justice and education during her first year at Furman University in 2000 and two Close quote. I'm gonna let you pick it up from here because there's a story that you just mentioned. It involves an after school program. Yeah. When I first started out from the university as a freshman, I signed up to be a volunteer, and I thought I would go once a week and help students with their homework and do a lesson all morality and character, and that would be it. But the director of the program was actually leaving to go and Pastor Church and so the program was going to end. Um, and so I took it over. It felt like a calling. It felt like the right time. And, um, it involved recruiting volunteers for three different clubhouses. It was really funny on campus because it got to a point where people would like almost, um, look away because I'm like, Hey, wanna volunteer? Come onto clubhouse today. They're like I can't make it. That's all right. I'll catch you tomorrow. We're meeting them, too. But I fell in love with the kids and the relationship. And so at the time, I thought the very best way for me to help the students was to get involved in policy. And, um so I went to pursue my doctorates and sociology and rose. I hated at Yeah, I loved what I was learning. But I didn't have time for that clinical practice and I missed the relationships. So I think that what I learned that first year was absolutely fundamental. Um But it fueled me to cross over to the other side of the street and take up the urban teacher Education program and Tracy those students and then after school program And can you tell me back then, if you have to summarize their socioeconomic level, their status Tell me about him, And we're not to say that all of them came from the same background was a pattern here. What would you say? Would you tell me about this? Absolutely a pattern. Um, part of my sociology work in Green Bowl is to study that area and to study historical segregation laws. Um, To this day, there is a physical brick wall that still stands that used to divide neighborhoods by race. And the three neighborhoods that I worked with or in LA, predominantly African American communities, Um, low income and the particular clubhouse that I Was closest to and volunteered with the most. That area has now all those kids have been displaced. It's been gentrified on the west End of Green Bell. Sounds familiar, doesn't it? It? Sure does. Did you ever study critical race theory in college? I did. I actually studied it as an undergrad and have recently used it in my own research on gentrification in school choice in Atlanta, Do you think CRT as we call it, And I think they answer this based on what you said, but isn't important education concept to teach future educators it absolutely as one of the most important things that has informed my own practices being part of Create. It's a teacher residency program here in Atlanta, and the big focuses on equity. It's looking at student work with an equity lens. It's communicating across differences with our colleagues and really learning how to tear it down some of these structures and acknowledging systemic barriers. Mhm. What do you think? Through your lands? This is through Europe. Your opinion? What do you think There's all of a sudden now this wave of wanting to band teaching critical race theory. And particularly the K through 12 level. When from what I'm hearing and learning It's rare that is taught at the elementary and even middle and high school level. What's your take on all this, Tracy? Absolutely. I think that the choice to you know, and they didn't use critical race theory and the resolution itself, But we do know that that's what was being referred to. I think it highlights a lack of informed decision making. And at the end of the day, a lot of people fear what they don't know. And so I think it comes from a place of fear. Um, I hate absolutely hate that There's two tenants of it that seemed to lie on feelings. One the fact that we're going to ignore systemic racism because of white people's feelings, and secondly, what's disturbing is that It seems to rely on a student's feelings. How many times have our Children of color been ignored? How many times have the feelings of.

Examine the city pal Alexander Alexander allegation that the voting machines were manipulated, can find any cooperation. In fact, Now she's being sued for defamation by the Dominion voting people. I checked out the allegation made by Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney that there was something called Hammering scorecard programs that were created by the intelligence community that members of the Biden campaign that somehow gotten ahold of and used it to manipulate the election results. Couldn't find any proof of that. Looked at the allegation that were made about Georgia. There were some irregularities, to be sure, but not enough to, in my opinion, invalidate the Georgia election, and of all of the Republicans elected statewide in Georgia and every single statewide Medical office in George's held by Republican. None of them believed that the Allegations were sufficient to overturn the election. And every single one of the members of the Georgia Board of Elections. Is a Republican, except for one None of the Republicans believe that the election was conducted in such a way that the result the official result should be tossed out. That is why I said That while I think it's worth Letting the 17 some million people who voted for Donald Trump. No That it has been examined, explored investigated. In order to give them confidence. Confidence that while their guy lost, he lost fair and square. I think that's valid. But I said the idea that somehow some way These Democrats in the house and in the Senate. Be convinced. And even Republicans. Enough shenanigans, irregularities and lawlessness. Lawlessness took place such as the election will be overturned. I said that there was a fallacy not gonna happen. Now to me. It was entirely predicted that predictable that some number of that group I'll be so angry for whatever reason. That they might resort to violence. Which is why it is so. Confusing why the Capitol Hill Police and the Metro Hill in the Metro Police in DC weren't ready. To say that Donald Trump ought to be impeached because he gave a speech that inside it Insurrection. When the man said that We should march peacefully and patriotic Lee to make our voices heard. Never heard of the First Amendment. I know you hate his guts. I know you think he's a racist. Believe me, Even Donald Trump is entitled. The First Amendment. How many times Has Kamila Harris tweeted about black lives matter. In a positive way. Group that assert to falsely But the police are engaging. In the use of deadly force. Against blacks just because they're black. Candy zones. Interviewed a Black professor named Marc Lamont Hill hard lefty. And she got him to concede that the data do not show that the police are killing blacks. Just because you're black. He conceded it. He then said, But The police or more likely to use non deadly non lethal force against blacks. Now the Harvard professor, to whom I have referred Who study found that police are more hesitant where we're lucky to pull the trigger against white people did find The police were 18% more likely to use non deadly force against blacks. Gets white. You think that's why the people out in the streets? The Washington Post article found research going back. Decades. Police three times more hesitant three times more reluctant to pull the trigger against a black suspect than a white suspect three times Yeah. Take the people in the streets right now. Protesting. Are aware There are a lot of studies that show the police three times more hesitant to pull the trigger against black person. And quote on Lee. Close quote 18% more likely to use non deadly force I say only because If it is true, and it is The young black man is anywhere from 8 to 10 times more likely to be a victim of a homicide. Then, doesn't it make sense that the police would be more likely to use Disproportionate force. Gets a group that is disappointingly engaging. In crime. Why is that so difficult? The cops don't want to use deadly force, so they're trying to use force so they don't have to get there. Supreme Court has rejected the Trump plea to expedite his election appeals. Unsigned order. Supreme Court without comment decline Expedite more than a half dozen cases seeking to overturn the election. Including in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin. By leaving them on the regular counter. That means Trump's appeals. Will not be considered..

"Three seven four to five you know in the last hour or two we've been dealing with coal ash issue and these State Senate has passed legislation today that would prohibit importation of coal ash from other states. There's other legislation that has been passed by the state. Senate Senate bill three sixty seven. It is backed by Governor Kip and the State School Superintendent Richard Wood and the Georgia teachers George Education Association or Association toward whatever it is And it would reduce the number of mandatory tests in public schools It is headed to a vote of the full Senate Pk Martin State senator. Who is the chairman of the Senate Education Youth Committee sponsor? The Billy's is overwhelmingly over and over and over. We keep hearing the standardized high stakes standardized testing continues to be a problem. And it's just too much Teachers Organization School Board School administrators. All spoke in favor of it. Even the Department of Juvenile Justice supported the legislation. The State Agency runs its own schools for. Are we allowed to say juvenile delinquent still And they run their own schools and they said twenty hours of classroom. Time is consumed just for preparation of the test. Let alone the testing. The legislation targets highschool mandatory tests. There are eight. There are two in math English science and social studies. The bill would reduce it to one test per topic it eliminates the social studies tested fifth grade states must comply with the federal mandate to test in seventeen subjects in various grades. However Georgia requires seven more tests than that Should it become law? We will drop to nineteen tests with two extra for social studies in eighth grade and in high school. The eighth grade exam is for Georgia history. There are two extra high school. Social Studies says for US history comics but the legislation would eliminate one of them requiring the Georgia Board of Education to choose which. Oh you know. They're going to scrap economics. One which for American history given the garbage the New York Times is pretty. Not Maybe we need the American history when though now there is some concern because the are used to hold teachers and schools accountable and tell parents other kids are performing and research suggests that the rigor of teacher grading varies from school school and statewide tests provide a uniform measure They're called the Georgia milestones. Georgia parents are GonNa know less about their kids. And but I gotTa tell you. I think it's a good thing here. Here's the thing just Leumi. LemMe step back for a moment. I grew up in. Dubai did not grow up in this country. I went to an amazing school. And you don't my parents. Were actually really hands off. They were not highly involved in school. My Dad worked seven days off shored seventies on shore and he coached basketball. Some In that's not see. My parents weren't involved but it's not like they were at school everyday. I know some people whose their patriots everyday mine weren't but I was a diligent student as where my sisters and we had a standardized test in it was the Stanford achievement test sell the California achievement test The Iowa Standards Test. I think some schools take a you know. The purpose of that test was to determine Where I was in relation to everyone else and then horror of horrors something American schools in the United States of America do not do is they would take that test and they would say look this. He's not doing well in math. Let's put him in a smaller math class with a teacher. Who's going to get him up to speed you in? Our school typically have two to three math classes. Even though we were really small school be my graduating class in ninth grade. Schooling whip ninth grade Dubai and then went to boarding school. I think there were twenty eight of us and so we ultimately would have in upper middle junior high school. We would have to math classes in elementary school. There would be three small classes of kids about ten kids in each class and except for math and for reading. And what would happen is they would take the standardized tests and they would say okay. All of the kids who were doing badly in math. Let's put them in a class together. The kids who were on average. Let's put them in a larger class size. And then the handful the four five kids who are really accelerated math. Let's keep them accelerating and put them in a class and so the very small group of kids who weren't doing well had great teacher. I was in one year and that teacher really could work with US and get us up to speed so in the next year we could move up our test. Scores would improve and suddenly were back in the median average class and ultimately several of US would move onto the higher in class and the same with reading comprehension. I remember one year eighth grade. We moved over there after kindergarten started first grade. I'm into second grade and I was terrible. Rewrite heated to read what I was a little kid I hated to read. And my reading comprehension vocabulary were often. They would make me go to a classroom and there were just six of us in the classroom and you know I was there for year and I had a British teacher who was fantastic and she. She got us up to speed and I not only moved into the the regular class but ultimately moved into the advanced class and buy my ninth grade class year I was. I was in the higher in math class and I was in the higher end reading reading class English class because they had used. The test is a benchmark for where I was an arranged classes for kids accordingly and in this country in this day and age. You're not supposed to do that. It is you do not do that. You do not put all the the slow learners together and all the advanced learners together. You just you're not supposed to do that and I can't tell you the number of time. I've talked to teachers like this. It's not good that we don't do anymore. You're not supposed to kiss that way and for the life of me. It just makes sense. If you've got a handful of kids in a class a you know the kids are being are just awful at math. Put that handful of kids together in a small class with good teacher to get them up to speed a smaller. Classy make the middle sized class. The largest would were the all the kids who are average or they're together make the kids who are actually advanced a small class of the kids who are actually not doing well a small class and and get the small class kids up speed and don't punish the ones who were advanced by putting them in the class with everyone else. Let Them Excel. Do you know when I moved back to the United States and a tenth grade for a while we were going to a small private school in Wilkinson County Mississippi Wilkinson County Christian Academy. And we were there for a little while and then my parents decided it was. It was thirty minute drive. They didn't want me drive. Gas prices have gotten high because of the Gulf War. A dollar twenty five was high at the time believe it or not and so they decided to send me off to public school and I hated public school. I'm just I'm going to be honest with you. It was miserable experience In fact my school's having some sort of reunion a high score you just. I had like three friends in high school. I ran the office And it's not that I was. I was never bullied. I and I got along with everyone. I just I didn't like it It was depressing. I had some really good teachers but I was so far advanced from where everyone else in the school was that I actually wound up being the fridge teacher. Believe it or not we had a little a little man from South Louisiana would drive up to teach fringe and occasionally he would not show up and he would leave lessons than I do because I had had five years of French. It was bizarre and In science my teacher would literally take the test for me and tell me to go in the back and start planning the experience experience for because I had had chemistry and physics biology in seventh eighth and ninth grade. I was so far advanced wherever and in in math. I'd never had geometry and I moved into the school. I had gone to the private Christian School for a semester and then moved in the second semester to the Into tenth grade math that it was geometry and the teacher Miss Him. She was a great teacher and she put me at a table to myself in the back of the room and said teach yourself. She had an entire classroom. She had twenty kids in this class and she put me at a back table and by the end of the semester I was already onto trigonometry and by the way I loved geometry and trigonometry. Two of my favorite subjects in school. But I did it all self taught self learning in the back of the room and I will never forget my very first encounter in public school. I was in What was her name Linda French? I the Miss French's class and there was a kid in the class my very first day in this classroom. I was completely discombobulated. Never seen anything like this. It was awful situation. There was a horrible teacher who taught civics and free enterprise shoes absolutely horrible and I left there and I went into this English class. And there was this Nola depre- that's her name. Linda priest in there. There was a kid in there and he didn't know what the Word Liberty was and I was horrified. He had no idea had never heard the word liberty before this tenth grade. Like this is insane. What if my parents done to me in a public school in rural Louisiana and graduated from there. I did find and I had a handful of really good friends. I got along with everyone class full of really good friends. I keep in touch with a couple of 'em but I wound up my eleventh twelfth grade year. I am not kidding you. I went to English and I went to science and I went to math and otherwise I said in the front office and helped run. The school and that is no exaggeration. You wanted to come into school eight. You had to come through me. You WanNA leave early. I was the one who took care of it I rounded up the tits records Iran. The computers for the school. I mean it was. It was fantastic. I loved it. I was in charge. Total power play on my part but I was shocked to come back to this country and realize that you didn't do standardized tests show in Louisiana. Had the leap test which call George Standards Dessus the Louisiana Education something something And and I was just shocked. That testing was not used to place students in the next year. I mean that was an eye opening experience even back then. I distinctly remember at eleventh grade having this realization that they're not doing this. I ultimately test into the gifted program. And they they didn't want to put me in the gifted program. You will not be surprised. I was in the gifted program. Yep I was total nerd. But they didn't WanNa put me in there because I had not been there for multiple years and they didn't like the person who is in charge of it didn't like the idea of putting me in the gifted program in my senior year in high school after refusing to put into my eleventh grade year but they ultimately had no choice. They put me in. It actually helped me get a good college scholarship to mercer into Duke But they I it was just. It was an eye opener. Experience American education outside this country in American schools outside this country is so much better than American education of all schools..

George Actually there's precedent on this the state legislature in Georgia does not impeach people who are indicted they don't impeach people who are indicted because they're not convicted did if Jim Beck is convicted he will automatically be removed from office and they really do believe in this whole innocent until proven guilty as a lawyer you would think Jim Jordan we know that as a lawyer you would think Jim Jordan would know the governor can't force him to resign but Jim Jordan really wants to run for higher office she's thinking of running for the Senate and she can't just run fetal heartbeat she can't run on fetal heartbeat because one heartbeat just got held up by a judge but to you know despite some of the polling out there fetal harvey really isn't that of a deal for most people and she knows if she's defined as the pro-abortion candidates she's not GonNa win in Georgia so she's got to come up with so I guess she's GonNa take this Corruption Angle with the governor I don't know that that's going to help her very much but that's the angle she wants to take now is the corruption England she's attacking Brian Jump for not forcing Jim Beck to resign and I don't think that's going to help for but it's it really is worth calling her out seriously it's worth calling this out to attack the governor for not doing something that he has no power of doing but that's the way the Democrats play these days ACE so it's worth calling them out meanwhile in other state news not we don't need to Belabor all of that in other State News Jack Kingston who represented Savannah he has filed his paperwork to run for the US Senate seat of Johnny Isakson also very interesting here randy Evans has done so Randy Evans is the president's ambassador to Luxembourg very influential Republican served on the Republican National Committee has been very helpful in Georgia redistricting and other fights Randy Evans has also filed his paperwork for the city you know there are a lot of people who say Randy Evans really helped persuade the president to look at endorsing Brian Kip now most people think Sonny Perdue had more to do with it than that but but that is out there Republican primary in twenty fourteen if you'll recall he and Karen Handel Ran and Kingston's a great guy but he's been on the coalition they would like to go beyond their beyond the bay so for example Doug Collins is probably the the front runner if we're honest about a Doug Collins up northeast Georgia congressman is probably the front runner Doug Holland has high name I d he has national visibility he the president likes seem Republicans Liking he fires the base He knows how to raise money Doug Collins is probably the front runner no disrespect at all intended to Doug Collins who I love we had him on this program a lot I think one of the things that Doug Collins has to answer is David Purdue and Brian Kemper Boe saying they would love to expand the base how does Collins expand the Base Doug Collins make no mistake about it Doug Collins can probably turn up the bass more than anyone else collins undoubtedly in my mind can mobilize Republicans but here's the thing David Purdue set down with the Atlanta Journal Constitution can sit down with Gregg Bluefin and he says he implicitly trusts Brian Kemp to pick the nominee he's got three criteria the two of them have on our side they gotta support the president's agenda including immigration trade in healthcare the second thing is they've got to be able to communicate the message because republic gins don't have a great history of communicating and the third is this Georgia is a growing state and the Republican Party needs Rawdon with it. The Republican Party is a growing state and needs to broaden you know so I'm I'm star I think I have a preferred candidate in the race there is school board member but he's more than that he's a strong conservative strong conservative he's on guy and he's been on the he's worked for Brian Kemp he's been on the he was the chairman of the Board of Trustees for Chattahoochee Technical judge and he has been part of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Georgia he's a good -servative he is very conservative he is solidly pro-life solidly Republican he knows how to communicate and he would expand the base there are more black voters in Georgia than there are Hispanic voters and I got to tell you the data consistently always shows the same thing black voters in Georgia may vote for let's say you did Herschel Walker now he actually lives in Texas so I don't think it could be him.

"georgia board" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM

"One eight six six five zero five four six two six Mark Bucher against the chief executive officer of the California policy center. And we're talking about the Los Angeles the teachers strike, so would it simply be a case of the the teacher's union battling charter schools is that a a major impetus behind all of this. Yes. Yes. Explaining a year ago. A majority of the four. New members were elected so Georgia Board supports charter schools. Charter schools have to be approved by the board of education because they are public schools charge tuition. They have to have to be proved that they operate under different. Charter usually they will we were talking earlier that might be an online charter school. I son actually went to a home school charter school where we were supported when we were homeschooling him. There's there's charter schools that focus on the arts on stem. All sorts of things. And so when that happened the the the union was feeling like okay now, there's going to be a push to creating more charter schools twenty percent right now. Charter of the kids are educated and charter schools and advocates push that over fifty percent. And and every every charter school opens, they hire teachers teachers are well paid sometimes in excessive what the teachers are making in the union, but they're not unionized. So the union sees them as a as a huge threat. And so that's one of the reasons they made. Cap on charter schools a key demand. And they're simply. I don't think there's any way the the majority who approach are because they see it as the best way, they educate kids or concede that. So let me get this straight. You're saying there's a majority that that wishes charter schools and sees it as a better way to educate kids. But that the teachers union is so locked into California state government that they can impose a cap on this justify their own nest. Am I understand correctly? They're they're trying in their negotiation key man's from the teacher's union. Is that there'd be a cap on charter school? Exactly when LA exactly it'll just another other words just to cover their own behinds. I mean, I mean, th they wouldn't be popular if they didn't work. I just find it remarkable that the California Public officials are so venal that in exchange for a few votes that they would shoot something like this down. I I don't know. It's not easy to astound me. But this actually does. Well, yeah, it's a very interesting thing that's going on. Because there's a lot of Democrats. California's very democrat a lot of Democrats who are strong supporters of charter schools, but most of the elected officials aren't because it's union cash that elects them. So so you have this split. And like I said just last year the people supported charter schools managed to get school board members elected you support charter school. And and and that's one of the key reasons they're on strike. So it's it's it's quite a thing. That's playing out. It's. This all over Florida as more and more charter schools, which as you said are very very popular waiting lists to get into most charter school. So why aren't we making more of them? And and that's what that's what the majority on the LA school board is saying we need more of these schools that are so popular and doing a great job of educating kids that that is very interesting. And so in other words, there is a split. We know the Democrats run the state of California. But I think what I'm hearing you saying is that there's a split among Democrats that there are many Democrats who favor the benefits of charter schools, but that the entrenched establishment if I'm not using an incorrect description or depiction is opposed to them. Exactly, exactly. So it's it's set up most Republicans do support charter schools. Does that mean, the democratic rank and file and donor support charter schools, but because of the unions are so powerful financially in their campaign contributions? They don't and so they often they elect people who don't also which is a tiny thing. I'm telling you about it. But now, there's this, you know, now now no one has to belong to the union says union used to have this steady supply of cash coming in from teachers who had and now the teachers have a choice, and so it's one of these California policy centers in ever knew it can the let teachers know they don't have to pay money to the union anymore. So anyhow, those it's all it's all very interesting in kind of all intertwined, but that's what's going on here in California. Teacher strikes. Most most intriguing and the status with the the charter schools is that some but not all are unionized. Are they represented by the same union is the public school teachers? Yes. Okay. So it's a pretty small percentage. I don't have exact percentage for that. First and ten percent of the charter schools could unionized. And and the ones that are unionized unaware of UT LA is the union here. And yes, the represented by the same. All right. Stay with us. More to come. This is an interesting look at the pilot takes behind the scene. We're talking with the Mark Bucher again. He's the chief executive officer of the California policy center there online at their name,.

"You look at what they were able to do coming out in in to start the game of what Nick foles they doing. Everybody's gonna talk about the Alcyone Jeffrey, MS, and they go talk about giving up the points that drew Brees. Look you up twenty points that drew Brees in this offense. You said I have an opportunity to win the game. You should be able to put border fourteen or on. Aboard. I give them the saints defense. A lot of credit. Eagles were missing a running game in this football. Chargers. Patriots like to take away from that Sony. Michelle, the Georgia Board all three hundred thousand they got ground and pound the charges of Tom Brady was very fishing. Threw one touchdown made great decisions. But you look at you look at New England, and this is their time. And we've talked about a couple of weeks ago Beto top rating, and oh Bella check before I bet on anybody else wants this time of the year starts and then go back to the early game Saturday colts chiefs, what you take away from that, Patrick Mahomes is that deal, brother. Everybody told me about all of the experience, and we got quarterbacks that's been in the playoffs in the one that they they've been winning. Look, we know this is Patrick my old second year this first playoff inland. Ask comfortable and as professional as anybody in the playoffs that he's continued to do the same things we've seen in all season doesn't help. Yes. Chelsea and he has seen any his defense play great with four didn't some sex Mahomes is that do and I think you'll see can't sit him. So all that sidearm throw around. The defense was just all believable markets sit there with me a minute. Because I want to ask you about one north thing sneaky big news folks collar Murray has to make his decision today column or have to decide if he wants to declare for the NFL draft by two day. But the Oakland A's who drafted him for baseball, consign Marie to a major league deal and offer guaranteed money to choose baseball over football. Without breaking baseball's rules, according to reporters at ESPN. Here's Adam Schefter. Oklahoma quarterback Tyler Murray has until midnight tonight to declare for the NFL draft. And that is the sense. And the expectation of exactly what he will do he likes playing baseball. But he loves playing football. The Oakland A's spent Sunday tried to convince him to come back to baseball to take their money. Maybe even destroying the offer. But the NFL draft is sitting there in April and Murray knows that he would be a first round draft pick potentially top ten traffic and football of something that he loves to do he broke all the high school records of all the Texas quarterbacks Andrew luck and drew Brees and Nick foles. And now Murray's ready to go to the NFL. We will await his announcement today. I'll be curious to see what Wrexham band think of column in the NFL. Chaffee. Thank you for doing my job. So Columbine like no question. He has been dynamic on the college level. Does the height concerning your decision on quarterbacks? How much does this height concern you the is going to be listed at five ten? I'm not one hundred percents. Sure. Right. By that. How we're well. That's what shift he said. He goes Rex she's going to measure it fights though. He's not he looks like he's five eight whatever it is. But to me one thing you can't take away is this guy is spectacular. And that's in look at today's game. Everything's out of shotgun. Anyway. So you're gonna make your offense. You'll put it around this young, man. We saw Baker Mayfield undersize guy had success..
