"Ten I guess on the line from Pennsylvania make you gain so Maggie we had a we stand at this point obviously your family has been subjected to just administrative over reach would be the only way I could it would describe it it almost seems to me to be a justification for all of these individuals who have their little positions of authority or power and it's it's not fair to you it's not fair to your husband it's certainly not fear to your daughter to family what you know what what do you what can you do if anything yeah so we're trying to change the school board policy because that's where all this sort of originates and and honestly I understand that schools feel pressure to to do something and to make sure that schools are safe but the problem is that a lot of schools including mine are implementing policies they don't really work and Nate they seem to over identify and over service within kids mostly who have disabilities and kids of color those are the ones who are most affected by a lot of these policies and you know particularly kids with disabilities they tend to have a lot of behavior issues that really should be being addressed in other ways and what ends up happening is you know after I detest nineteen is called in in my school district that means that every time they call a threat assessment team they're calling the police to make a report and we don't know yet with those repercussions could be later on you know we don't know if that information is going to be used to try to force kids out of the school district in two different placements or if that information you know if a family wants to take their child to a different school like a private school or something you know that school may get that information and not accept the child so there are a lot of things that could happen and it's it's just not good for our schools to be you know working as an extension of of the police department in keeping records of our students I mean either children they're not criminal and we should be treating that and especially kids with disabilities well that's what yes yeah I'm totally I am in total agreement with you and I just want to say that you know the for the the kid who who shot up in and killed several fellow students are down in parkland Florida he had a record as long as his arm I mean that school went out of their way to bring him back every time which was the wrong strategy and now I well I mean I think you have to be a little careful in how you serve evaluate some of those situations right like back that's a very and that's where you know people look at those situations and they start to extrapolate will if we intervene earlier and now you're sort of saying that and and I would believe and I I don't know that case and I know it really only that he had he he was dealing with some other issues to I think one of the issues that we would like to see our school district address and really handle it's part of their policy re evaluation is really looking at and this is what the predecessor model supposed to do is a lot of times when kids are making threats they need support and what kinds of support are you giving them and when kids they're acting out and and their behavior is you know dean's threatening often it's because they're not getting the support that they need for example maybe you know they really require a one on one aid and the school hasn't staffed that person or maybe there needs to be a behavior plan in place to help that child like my daughter with with the transition or you know Hearst case wasn't really that extreme and her behavior wasn't really that over the top I mean there are first graders are kindergarteners that he may be taking a pencil and try to you know stabbed the teacher but even that is like well kids just don't do that the behavior is communication what is the child trying to communicate to the adults I mean the adults should be the one figuring this out but you know in my mind you know it as a parent and as the disability advocate you know there are no bad kids there are they're just kids their kids his behavior is trying to tell us something and we need to help them make their struggle yeah well I may disagree with your life I think that the eighteen year old shooter in parkland maybe he wasn't a bad kid but he became a very bad kid and I think that when they when a school district looks at that and says well well we never want to have that happen here I understand that okay and but that kid had incredible amounts of brushes with the law Sirius activities there were people who tried to call and seek help for him and the parkland school system failed at every turn and resulted in the the murder saying is what I'm saying is for them to turn around and focus their attention on a six year old who says something right girl who says I shoot you if they're not able as administrators are is academics to distinguish the difference between a child at six who says something that's innocent and somebody who at the age of fifteen sixteen seventeen and eighteen was making some very weird threats and the students at the school was we're aware of him that's the problem you if yeah if they focus in the wrong area the what ever taught whatever ability they have to focus needs to be focused on kids who have shown a real all have begun to show had begun to show a real attitude now if you want to say to me that if there are some child is it a physically assaulted teacher at six or seven that's a problem that's a problem but for some child simply a little girl they say I shoot you that that to me is the those people should even be in the educational system because they failed not only at parkland but the failed your daughter as well in the failed you and they have well it's like I nuns okay with guns and let me tell you that the nuns were able to figure this out in the fifties and sixties which kid needs needed to get out some some corporal punishment in which he didn't Maggie I want to take up a quick phone call or two from my listeners and see what they have to say I hope you can stay with me for a couple more minutes okay sure sure let's go to add in Worcester Massachusetts add your on with a nice side with Dan ray and Maggie gains at I don't know what your perspective is on this but feel free to join the conversation here on the ring central nice I call I go ahead at I think it's terribly unfortunate I actually think your parkland example an example of what happened not use daughter fit together quite well because I think they're real forces you know in academia that are trying to abnormal why one like right when her daughter yeah I don't know why abnormal behavior like the guy why are you the kind of next to two things up and if we're in that environment and I think we all are and we're in an environment where people are not allowed to exercise judgment or discretion I would look at this and say I would actually have a lot of the people the teachers and the principal okay they have to sort of war ratchet it up because if they don't then the next time there's gonna be some tort lawyer who you know wants to shake down the school district or some civil liberties union lawyer is going to come in and try to make something well you did this you know to my client because of they were in this you know victim grow for this disadvantage group and I just think if that's the environment we're in they have to do this not because they really thought she what what what something that probably their insurance company has suggested that they do a lot is all liability I mean I do I do think that it is it and I think you're describing the pressures if right but I think that there is some research out there and and really what is most effective from what I've read in terms of of tracks is creating a climate in your school where it's often like the students who know if there's trouble with other students Auckland the the other students right away I just want to jump in for one second add in the article that I've read here which I think Maggie is familiar with today to their credit the senior policy advocate of the American civil liberties union of Pennsylvania actually is on the right side of the situation in this one a gentleman by the name of Harold Jordan said this is a real setback he said excessive involvement of police in schools could make students less likely to report concerns to adults this is not a process of going to catch the next school shooter and there is an ACLU lawyer who on this one and I think agrees with you and may and you know and I've actually yeah you about this yeah yeah lawyer that you you would have what I'm sorry what and lawyers and maybe even some practical ways to substitute the word lawyers well the little obviously the lawyers are the ones that I mean that this is a see why a situation I guess for the school board as long as we do every thing it's it's like these days every corporation in America forces its employees to go under you know under the sort of the the empathetic training with diversity training etcetera I don't know that they're doing it to make people better people are but they're doing it so that if there is an incident and somebody else the big corporation to turn around say Hey we provided two and a half hours of fill in the blank with a sensitivity training or whatever you want to call it it's a simple it's as simple as that edit because we're we're supposed to be like this for culture like work for that does stuff like happened in this country and they seem to do okay yeah I would I would I would agree and as always I appreciate your joining the conversation thank god thanks buddy talk too soon okay OB Maggie I really empathize with you I'm sure your daughter is going to do just fine I I appreciate you taking the time to tell this story because I think what happened to you is happening to more parents in more schools around the country that are necessary and I I I I I really believe that the that the schools that that have had these incidents is generally some signs all I know that occasionally you can have some kid who pops up who has been a perfect student has never caused a problem and he just go here she goes crazy on one day but I don't think that's the experience said don and parkland they ignored a lot of real serious signs and and actually that was the point I was trying to make is you know if people are given the support that they need when you know when you're seeing the signed earlier on maybe you can avoid some of the situations and I think the problem is is that people try to go you know dial it back too far and say oh well maybe some of that is happening in kindergarten we can sort of had this off for you know just sort of the pressure and again trying to treat everyone the same you know one of the things that I think my district policy failed to address adequately is you know they actually are required under federal law to take into account someone disability when they're accepting you know for risk and you know it doesn't seem that they did that in this case but I would I wouldn't be here if if the child was six years old and was in the dealing with a disability issue this is the action of the six year old child in in this so yeah Lee and I have a five year old who like doesn't understand what a gun really is or what it means to shoot someone either the whole process and and I you had definitely see it yeah so all right thank you best of luck on this one give give your daughter an extra hug for us tomorrow it's a lot of people here in my audience are going to be very empathetic to your situation thanks having joined us tonight okay thanks for having me you're very welcome okay we're going to continue with this conversation and we have about ten minutes left in the second segment if you'd like to comment on what you just heard I would really appreciate getting your point of view on this I think this.

"Colorado's morning news is getting to talk to people in the know. And also getting to learn about the stories behind the stories, or in this case getting to know the man behind the story of the stories and his story mardi, and I both have ten year old boys. So they love our next guest books. Dave Pilkin is the author of the bestselling captain underpants series. And now his dog man series of books has newest dot, man. Lord of the fleas. Good morning. Dave, thanks for coming on. Thanks for having me kind of fun to have this new series to think about and work on it is it has actually been a lot of fun. I I've always been a cat and dog lover. And so the ideas have been flowing very fast. What is your inspiration for this new series of books as well? I know it actually started from my childhood. When I was a kid when I was in second grade, my my I was having some problems in school some behavioral problems, and I got diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia, and my my teacher didn't know what to do with me. So she put me out in the hallway. And that's where all creativity started to happen. I I had nothing else to do. So I was drawing and writing and making comics, and that's where captain underpants and dog, man. Both got their start is your past dyslexia. Why we see misspellings in the captain underpants series of bucks? Not really I think what I was trying to do with the captain underpants series is to show that the creativity is a process, and it starts with stick figures, and it starts with poor grammar and poor spelling, but but the more you do it the more you improve. And so I kind of wanted to show the the idea of the practice Alps to improve everything. And so by the time, you get to the dog man books. There are no longer misspelled words. And the drawings are improving, and and so I hope that that message is getting across. I think it is Dave, you know, for my son. He would read your captain underpants books over and over to the point. It's like you've got to choose something else is but data I just enjoy them so much. What is it that you have or you channeling that inner ten-year-old that you connect with other ten year old boys and just share that experience. You know, I think it is still comes from my childhood because when I would get sent out into the hallway I sort of felt a sense of isolation from my classmates, they were all inside it, and I was outside. And and I still wanted to have a connection with everybody. So I would write these. Stories as a way to still be a part of the of the club, and in a sense. And I and I wanted to to have that connection with my friends, and I think I'm still doing that. In a sense. I'm still writing for the kid I used to be in the friends I used to have when I told my son Daschle that I was going to be interviewing you he got really excited and said, I've got some questions for him. So I put those on tape. Let me ask you the first one here. This is Daschle why can't dog man have shades. Like, all cool. Cops have and why doesn't he have shades? Do you do your on illustrations? I do my own rations. Yeah. I think probably the reason I don't give him shades is because there's so much expression and the eyes and I don't want. I don't want to cover up. The is too much. One of the quotes that USA today has about choose the savior for the reluctant reader until my son became aware of your books. He did not read much. So he was fascinated by whatever you're sharing with them. So again on that on that connection piece on that on that inspiration. Was that your mission or intent to be able to share those experiences with kids or was it just you want to express yourself? And have this moment to say, this is who I was this is who I am. I think it's a little bit of both. I'm trying to kind of express myself to my audience. But also, I think because I had I had some reading challenges when I was a kid. I had I had this Alexia. And so I really am trying to help the other kids who might have similar challenges to associate reading with fun. And so that's one of the one of the big missions that I have in life. If people don't know, George and Harold are the narrators of both captain underpants. The dog, man. Series of books. So here's Daschle next question for you. Why did you start captain underpants with George and Harold do georgeanne herald remind you of anyone or are you sort of Georgia herald, what do you think? That is a very insightful question. I actually am George and Harold Jordan. Based on me. They both have ADHD like I did. And they both make comics in school, and you know in their private time. Just like I did. And they're both sort of trying to find their way through life while having this creative friendship, and I I had a lot of creative friendships when I was a kid. I would I would. Don's ideas off my friends, and they would do that as well. And so it's kind of kind of reliving my childhood through these two characters, you know, since you said, you had issues with with teachers, and the stamp with that they put you out in the hall because they didn't know innocence, how to manage your what to do with you does that make you a little more empathetic to teachers today. Do you go and do they come to you and say, I now I understand a little better. What it was like maybe to have a student like you, do you think they're better to understanding kids? Like you today. I think so I think there are a lot of a lot more resources for teachers nowadays. And as I've traveled across the country. And I I do a lot of author visits. I've met so many incredibly dedicated teachers who give so much to to their classrooms to their schools and the communities, and I've really seen a lot of. A lot of attention given to kids that have special needs the way that I did. So it's a much better environment. Now, I think that was when I was a kid two part question. Will there be a dog man movie? Like there was a captain underpants movie. And you said you love cats at the beginning. Will there be a maybe a cat man series? Well, I'm hoping there will be will be a dog man movie and television show, we're sort of talking about that now was several different people. So we'll see about that. And as far as cats Goi there, a cat in dog man who is an and the kid man, they're sort of they have kind of a big role in the story, including the new book. There's a bad guy PD is kind of he's kind of a reckless character. But he's met this kitten name little PD who is actually his clone. And for the very first time in his life. He's he's discovering love, and I think that's kind of changing it's helping to change his his point of view. And he's he's. Trying to be a better person David with a few moments. We have left. I wonder just curious if you had any advice for parents with kids who struggle in school or have maybe reading and learning challenges like you had. Oh, yes. I think you know, this might sound like a small thing. But one thing that really helps me, and I know it helps a lot of other kids is is taking a little time out every day. Maybe just a half hour to read for fun. And I don't mean like homework reading or educational reading. But just finding something that you really connect with and read for fun and make it a habit. There have been studies that have been done on this very thing. And they found that kids who read for fun every day. They not only do better in school, but they have better social skills. They have more confidence, and they're actually kinder and more empathetic people. So it really helps in all aspects not just in schoolwork. Well, thanks so much for bringing joy to so many people's lives, including Marty and my sons we really enjoy reading the books with them. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Dave, Dave, Pell key, the new book dog man Lord of the fleas is no joke. It is. Because of Dave silky that my son enjoys reading, and yeah,.

"You're listening to the voice of Pittsburgh, NewsRadio ten twenty. Katie. I'm anti gnome. What do you think of the idea of arming police officers in schools now many schools have that already but Pittsburgh public schools does not? And they are debating this issue as we speak and tonight, there's going to be a public hearing on this on our own Shelby cassisi as studio with us now. Shelby. Yeah. This is a stems from a nineteen Ninety-seven policy. That allowed the district to hire officers and prohibited them from carrying firearms. This became a much more polarizing topic with so many of the school shootings that occurred in our country over the past couple of years. So now, there's a debate ongoing within the Pittsburgh public schools, and as you can imagine there are opinions on both sides of the issue, and we'll start with those that are against it. I spoke today with the ACLU Pennsylvania's herald, Jordan, and he. He discussed why people like him people like him as organization are against putting armed officers and two schools. The argument in favor of having police carry firearms keeps shifting. So. So the question was asked. New police Gary firearms because there's a threat from students coming to school. And they answer seemed to be no in fact, chief Brown said that when he was asked directly by a school board member. That there had not been a case in which a kid brought a firearm to school. So. The argument seemed to be that it's shifted to we're trying to protect schools for outside threats. And so we tried to assess that argument, but then the argument kept shifting back to you have to call control kids who maybe taking antidepressant medication. So it's not it's never been clear to me exactly what the argument for doing. It is. But is it clear that there are those that are saying that officers need to be armed in parts, at least because of students and the threat that they may Poche. At least not in this situation that I've seen there are some people that you know, you see men like Harold Jordan that are clearly against at one hundred percent, the people that are on the other side of the argument don't seem to be so much. Yes, we need this. They seem to be more towards pushing the discussion. And that's where we come to you Bill Heilmann, the vice president of the Pittsburgh federation of teachers. He says his organization has been under fire a little bit for seeming like they are one hundred percent in support of putting armed officers in all of their schools. He says that's not the case. And he explains why he feels that it just needs to be more of a discussion more. So than a clear ruling we made no demand of the school district. We asked for a process, we believe that the current policy that prohibits issuing fire. Your arms in any occasion without even discussing. It was too restrictive. So we asked them to adjust their policy that's been interpreted by some as asking for armed police officers to be in our schools, and that's not true. There might be some situations where there would be a police officer in our school. That's true. Now, Pittsburgh police when they come into our school say they carry their firearms on their on their belt, the so it may be the case that it's sometimes that happens with our school police, but it's not something that we said was a need. Not with the hearings that will take place this evening at six. Is there any thoughts on what the school board is going to vote when they get the opportunity to coming up. Yeah. You know, and both of the men that I talked to your data. We heard earlier both feel that on Wednesday. If it does come to a vote at that point, which its plan to the school board is going to vote against changing the policy, and it will remain prohibited for officers hired by the schools to carry firearms now, hi almond and the Pittsburgh federation of teachers their point was to say if there is a vote on Wednesday, we feel it's too early. We feel the discussion needs to continue before we make an ultimate ruling on this. So, you know, a lot of the school board members. I, you know, maybe a lots of the wrong word, but a majority of the school board members have publicly said that they are against it. There have been a few that said, we'll wait. Let's kinda take a second look at this. But enough have spoken out and said, I'm against this to warrant the idea that it will probably get voted down on Wednesday Shalva Qaissi. Shelby. Thank you very much to appreciate it. I want to hear from you semi attacks right now on the right on a motive text line right automotive. The best deal in Pittsburgh. Here's the number eight six six three nine one at ten twenty has the time come for all schools, whether it's Pittsburgh public schools, or you name the school district should all schools have their officers armed, or is it best to leave it up from school to school, whatever they feel is best in that school.
