"jay berman" Discussed on The Wonkhe Show - the higher education podcast
"So the government is i became much is action. They liked the idea that we can have smaller qualifications that you could take one of the long standing issues in the sector being what community to have a decent subject waco's any one of the credit fine. What will be that. We have a fullback award. Another qualification sitting in the white. If you don't make it with the way the deployment of higher education the now we exit. This is two hundred forty credit award. It's the festival of course. It's now at fullback award zone. But this is a comparatively new invention. It stems from the james committee. Nineteen seventy-two james committee was set up to look at teacher education and in an interesting mixture of cost cutting and philosophical pragmatism. He had this is what we won't take was a deployment. Hydration is a first stage for those people who wanted to become teachers particularly for those teachers in first and middle schools but also those who are going to take known specialist teachers of adolescence needed in secondary schools and colleges honest decrease students could teach the kind of things you might take any level but people need to be after each general things that have a small amount of specialization but also small amount of general studies in him so this will be good. It was also helpful because the colleges of education that now needs it to verify could afford these trees. They have to have the kind of specialization that you need for the research. Part at the end of the honors degree and therefore they could offer them they will of course also jay berman quick but the james committee recommendations go cold firstly though a major changes having to teach education anyway but they couldn't dislodge the movement that were happened in terms of converting says in education stiffness of education into the bay degrees that slowly will taking halt. So it didn't really get picked up the strong main teacher education. his tweet phases didn't work too. Complicated bats the sector was already working away. This was a new qualification. Working parties got going at a national level. That was a large complication about how this would work. Plus the new binary divide by universities thinking how they could develop pictures but also the cna cna might the big running on this Quotation which you could take one of these days. An early adopter started to become particularly. Innovative is included. The north east london polytechnic school of independent. Study which offered this depature. Butch board away. The people could build their program on qualification. The books for the debate was these adoption by nursing midwifery and health visiting as the qualification that they would take bite wanted. A short cycle qualification. and so dip. Agee's in those subjects became the my father majority of dependables by far the majority of sub degrees Awarded pacific's now. Obviously they've now moved onto degrees the patriot. He's no longer quantum thing it was but this was still imply when he was trying to be sub degrees. You could get additional student numbers for offering a debate patriots but quickly confused by the introduction of foundation grace so to patriots love. You fell away. I went and checked. As far as i can see on uk-us there is one depatrurey cuddly being offered across they didn't talk countries a standard and qualification. And that's the point blank music school now. I'm not to check ups differently. But all the thinking about where we live four or five qualifications all the idea where we go with stuff degrees the waxing waning of different types of qualifications. Is that the debate. She is now had its time now. With twenty six agree per unit best. He's led by university. Uk have made some pledges pete while they can. So we've got one hundred and forty universities under the umbrella of uk of agreed sector-wide climate change targets and what effect these means that they've undertaken to co emissions by seventy eight percent by twenty thirty five on nineteen ninety levels. There are a number of exceptions to the kind of the broad response which has been suggested to be a bit of rhetoric. Unfortunately given that we've got we were just talking about the leading edge research that we've gotten this country particularly around climate change but the aspirations given by universities to cut emissions have been the minimum level the basic level although you could argue that that Mirrors what the government's suggesting as well a couple of notable exceptions in glasgow and keel. Who have gone beyond and bam minimum but the the the key thing is there are three target areas that they've got to meet three scopes there called and still the hasn't been An announcement or a sense of what universities are going to do around scope three which involves international travel and there's a real tension there between international students flying to the uk to study fieldwork trips. Those kind of things versus our recent experience and knowledge about online learning and how we could reduce emissions. So there's a real tension there around that kind of scope three this as described levels so a damp squib potentially in terms of expectations and my thaw around. This would be that we know that. Many of our kind of newest students Younger generations of very conscious and very focused on this is an issue and if your community all university isn't living up to your expectations it's another potential area of disquiet discomfort Intensive studies right. Show they you know. I've read creek critique of this stuff that as pay says basically says why is the higher education sector kinda matching the band minimum. When you know it ought to be given what he knows about the climate and the kind of understanding each generated of the scale of the challenge it ought to be leading the way. I'm not doing much more than the rest of society. Yeah i mean. I suppose my count to that would be that Universities have got so many competing demands at the moment in terms of such recovering from from keva. And i'm with you know end. This policy changes going on. I do think it's good that there is space being made for work to be done in this. And i think it's good that universities you care are pushing on with this work and not being distracted by the twenty other things going on every day. But i think you're right. I think bream for universities to do more and in some ways i think universities may look to differentiate themselves students by showing that they're really committed to sustainability and looking to go above and beyond this sort of Sector white work. It's an interesting area is something that has largely consensus across by university staff under cross cross students as an important so i think it's good to see it's good to see what's going on in the space and they're definitely as.

"I'm sorry to say that because it would have made senator by and senator randolph. Very very sad. Thank you so much for that. Y'all last words are to you. How should we do people. Listeners celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the twenty six amendment. And why is it important today. Well we should celebrate it by talking about it. I think that even just understanding what it is and being able to identify restrictions Through an age based lens Is a huge service to us such a thank you for allowing us to have the space to talk about this topic and of course it's an honor to join in conversation with jay berman On this is such a unique opportunity and you know there are. It's very easy to look at voter restrictions That don't want to expand access to the ballot because they're doing their political calculation. What i found when i was researching and writing about About this amendment is that even constitutional rights scholars And litigators have forgotten with this amendment is and they have Children who are college age. And they don't think about the way they hadn't construed ways in which their children on had Unique specific issues accessing the ballot. They thought that you know taking a trip without access to public transportation far off campus They didn't think about that in a twenty six amendment lens. They didn't think about these access to vote by mail. Or i'm the increase. The mobility of this class Within a twenty six amendment lens But the numbers actually bear this out young people when they go to vote by provisional ballot they have to do so outsize rates compared to all other groups. And that's the last stop right. The last stop is the provisional ballot. Everything else that you tried before failed you in now. You have to vote provisionally Young people they ended up voting provisionally the number is one. Informal millennials had to vote provisionally in two thousand sixteen presidential race. And you have to compare that with six percent of baby boomers and two percent of members of the greatest generation so there's obviously structural obstacles in place so the besley jeff that we can celebrate the twenty. Sixth amendment is talking about it by talking with Our our young Kids about it or with our peers about it and trying to remember the fact that something happened. Fifty years ago the nation came about in the quickest amendment to be ratified in. Us history through across partisan lines on to celebrate access to the ballot and there are ways in which as i said earlier. It's easy to look at this within the context of obstructionists. But there's another way to look at it which is what's also happening in the blue states. We need to have access to same day voter registration for young people. Same Voter registration is a tool which has shown that young people will vote at a rate of nine percentage points higher than in those that live in deadline oriented states and you don't see that uniformly in the blue states for example and even in the blue states you don't see access to on-campus polling locations so there's a good reason i understand. I n j is very well taken that you know there might be a political calculation taking place but i see that political calculation is taking place across partisan lines As well and that's not really what democracy is about We want to encourage young people to participate. Voting is habit forming like anything new. You have to learn how to do it. And that requires certain information obstacles in the big like the first time around but the next time around the substantially easier and so we have to celebrate. First of all. I'm going to get a stiff drink. One day with jay entreat him to drink. But we have to talk about it and that's the best way that we can do it. We have to be able to identify what obstacles are and where the opportunities are present for the next fifty years. Thank you so much.

Llc she's the author of youth voting rights and the unfulfilled promise of the twenty sixth amendment which was recently published in the university of pennsylvania journal of constitutional yale. Thank you so much for joining. Thank you for having me. Jay senator birch by was the founding father of three and nearly four constitutional amendment stirring his pathbreaking service on the senate subcommittee on constitutional rights. Tell us what those four amendments were. And how senator by became such a dynamo at proposing constitutional amendments. It's a. It's quite a story in and of itself The previous chairman of the senate subcommittee on constitutional amendment had been s. These key over. Senator from tennessee very very well known at the time unfortunately senator key father actually died on the floor of the senate collapsed from a heart attack Jimmy lem who was the chairman of the senate. Judiciary committee is senator from mississippi. Longstanding chairman was getting ready to abolish the subcommittee. Because obviously it doesn't do a lot of work haven't been that many amendments i think if we were to average it out it's about take the bill of rights out. It's about one every thirteen years. But birch by went to senator eastland and set to the chairman that he was prepared to pay for the subcommittee out of his senate office allowance. If germany's little keep the subcommittee going. They had a very nice personal relationship. Aside from the fact that they disagreed on virtually every issue that came before the senate judiciary committee and after a few days center is actually called up and said and i'll go. This is about how the conversation went. Birch are decided to let you have that subcommittee. And so that subcommittee was in a converted. Men's room on the third floor of the senate office building but it gave birth is amazing. Amazing things as you point out. He was the author of four proposed. Constitutional amendments three of them which were passed by congress which are the twenty-fifth amendment having to do with presidential inability and succession which donald trump brought back to life the twenty-six which were going to talk about today eighteen year old vote in jail can tell you why it's not the forgotten amendment anymore because it was very important. In the context of twenty twenty he was also the author and principal sponsor of the equal rights amendment which passed congress but unfortunately is in limbo in regard to ratification and his baby. The most the one who was most attached to because he came to it not in the in the beginning but he was transformed by. The hearings was direct popular election of the president which we failed to secure passage of because we could not break a filibuster in the united states. Senate but i will say. And that's an amazing amazing record. But it doesn't touch on the fact that the one piece of legislation which was not a constitutional amendment which e sponsored and probably has had more impact on american life than anything other than the civil rights acts of not of the nineteen sixties is that he was the proud author of title nine. It is indeed an extraordinary record of constitutional achievement. The electoral college amendment story by itself is remarkable. As you say it was supported by a threatened filibuster from southern senators. And had it been reported out of congress likely would have been ratified since it was supported by both president nixon and democratic leadership and by super majorities in the country has a whole yell at least one other. Senator is called a father of the twenty sixth amendment who was pressing for youth suffrage during the darkest days of world war two and continued to do so throughout his career. Yes oh senator. Jennifer jennings randolph. He was a small d. democrat and member of the democratic party representing west virginia. And he was as you say. Jeff the father of the twenty six amendment when fdr i proposed Sending the troops to fight in world war. Two it was randolph. Who noted that He said who will say. They are old enough to use bullets but too young to use ballots and that launched him into multiple proposals for ratifying the twenty sixth amendment to lower. The voting age outlaw age-discrimination access to the ballot and he also supported Like senator birch. I who is a champion for democracy. Senator randolph also supported multiple suffrage amendment. So he saw this as part of the nation's expansion for democratic inclusion as well he supported dc statehood which was ratified at least in part through the twenty third through the twenty-third amendment extending the right to vote for presidential elections for d. citizens He supported abolishing the poll tax. The twenty four th amendment and of course the twenty sixth amendment. Two and he himself was heavily influenced by his states. Fight for ratification of the nineteenth amendment. He remembered as a young man Listening to the debate among in his state for expanding the suffrage for women and so this heavily informed his perspective about what evolution of the right to vote should look like and what democracy and democratic inclusion look like. Thank you so much for that. And for reminding us that all of those suffrage amendments that senator randolph supported the twenty third amendment giving dc citizens the right to participate of the amendment abolishing the poll tax the twenty fourth amendment as well as the twenty sixth amendment. All were part of a wave of constitution making in the civil rights era that some have ranked with the progressive era and the post civil war era as among the most fertile sources of constitutional amendments Jay berman let's dig into the remarkable story of the passage of the twenty sixth..
