"I'm queen IQ him. Piedmont School District is planning on reopening its elementary schools. Kindergarten to fifth grade students will be going back in early December and the upper grades will be back in school in January. That is if the pandemic remains under control in Alameda County here to tell us about how Piedmont is planning to do. This is DS Julia McAvoy and Julia Piedmont is a small district, and that gives him an advantage in terms of reopening for in person learning. Definitely. We're talking about a district of some 2500 students. They have just six schools. So yeah, Size makes a huge difference when it comes to logistics of reopening when compared to say, you know, Oakland, which has 36,000 students. And how they're planning to reopen is they've used the cares act money from the feds and the state to redo their H vac system. They have plans for outdoor classrooms. One teacher plans to have kids use clipboards and walk across the street to the park, for example. They're using the same disinfecting methods in their school bathrooms that the airlines are using to clean their airplanes. And, you know, of course, they have the pee pee in the masks and the testing all in places well. We're going to see cohorts, a small cohort of maybe 13 students attending in the morning and then the other cohort of 13 students attends in the afternoon, and each spends the other half of the day doing distance learning. Now the reopening was pushed by a group of parents, but it's not without controversy. Yes, Oh, board member Corey Smigel said that they decided to survey their elementary school families and that 74% of those families said they wanted their students to go back into school in person. And that's kind of what built up. I think this pressure on the board and the superintendent to really focus on how they could make it happen. One of those parents who was in favor of sending her kid back was Lindsay Thomason, what his teacher's been able to do over the computer. I just don't have words for how impressed I am That said, I do think that the in person learning environment for my kids is best and I Understand that their other families who don't feel the same way for huge variety of needs, she said. Look, this is absolutely no indictment on the quality of schooling that the teachers were delivering. They were amazing. But her kid really needed more. And I don't mean to say that that's best for everyone, especially right now with different people's concerns, But for my kids, that's the best. Learning environment. So you mentioned the survey and that began a series of really intense conversations with parents and teachers to figure out how to make this happen. Can you walk us through that timeline a little bit, you know, listen. In September, the district finally signed a work agreement with teachers to return to in person teaching and Before that they had met for months and they'd had many emotional board meetings, trying to figure out how this was going to come together and the fact that they have an agreement right now that teachers are coming back into the classroom is something that a lot of school district's larger districts have not been able to accomplish just yet. And what if you're a parent who doesn't feel comfortable was sending your kid to school? Yeah. Parents who don't want their kids to go back, do not have to send them. They can continue with distance learning. I would add that teachers who don't feel comfortable going back who can make the case. With their health that they should not be back in the classroom can also continue to teach with distance learning. So you mentioned that the teachers union is on board with this plan. Yeah, I spoke with one teacher who said, Look, you know, I'm uncertain of how this is gonna work out, but I'm going to go back in the classroom and see how it goes. Her objection at this point is not so much the safety issue. As it is this sort of moral consideration of furthering the inequities that exist in house schooling happens in America, where one set of kids with money and privilege gets ahead and the other set of Children have to scramble for resource is That was Julia.

"On site I drive Appliance to protect PCs, Max and servers from data loss due to crashes and ransomware that I drive dot com slash NPR. And by the listeners, members and sustaining members of greedy public radio 88.5 FM in San Francisco and 89.3 of them in Sacramento. The time is 8 22. It's morning edition on I'm Brian. What? It's Election Day, and it's several polling places across the Bay Area. High school students are acting as election workers. Cupid's Julia McAvoy spoke with three in the East Bay who push themselves to take a role in this election, even though they are too young to vote. Robert's Tiffany is 17 and a senior at Ensign Al High School in Alameda. He's working as an election clerk at the Oakland Coliseum polling place, helping set up voting stations at the start of the day, then monitoring drop in ballots at the drive thru drop off. Mom also helped with the elections. But due to the cove it she was unable to so I had the opportunity. So Stefanie took an online course and test to become approved as an election clerk. As a student. I kind of just wanted to come out here and be president. Because of our age. It's a bit more mature and take these voters too serious. At a table outside the Coliseum. 16 year old Juliana Contreras, from a rise high school in east Oakland, was checking in voters who wanted to vote in person. Like other election workers, she work gloves, advisor Mask and a plastic poncho over her clothes to protect her from covert 19. Another like a lot of people. They don't vote because the lines were too long, and I was okay like they lived many younger people, so it works faster. So like that that was important. Contra says. The hardest part of the job so far was probably waking up for her. 7 A.m. call time that and the long days she won't get off until after nine PM on Election Day. Over at U. C. Berkeley's MLK student union. Francis Liebowitz, who's a student at Berkeley, High School is an election judge. You know, a lot of people don't know about poor workers and how You know for working actually exists on and so I think it's just like sort of opened up my mind to like a lot of different opportunities there are to help in democracy, and that really isn't just a very small set of people back and help you can. You can all do something. Liebowitz is aware that 18 to 24 year olds are still the lowest represented age group of registered voters in the state. So she was grateful to be connecting with college students coming in to vote. We've had a lot of first time voters, and sometimes they know exactly what to Dio and other times, you know, I get it. It's a little bit of an intimidating process. After her poll closes late Tuesday night, Leibowitz says she'll go home to watch the returns with her family. Meanwhile, as an election judge who's been closely following the legal challenges to voting across the country, she says she's also prepared for election results to drag on for a while. I'm Julia McAvoy news. One of the top concerns among voters in this election is health care. Joe Biden says he wants to expand the protections of the affordable care act. While President Trump has spent his term trying to dismantle the law next week, the Trump administration is supporting a case being argued before the Supreme Court to strike down the law entirely and here to talk about what that would mean for California. Health correspondent, April Damn, Bosque. Hey, April. Hey, Bran. The name of the Supreme Court case is California v Texas Can you first remind us what this case is about? And what California's role in it is. So the case revolves around the penalty that people had to pay under the affordable care act if they did not have insurance and back in 2017. Republicans set that penalty to $0 and a bunch of states led by Texas said Well without that penalty that part of the law is unconstitutional. But it also said if that one piece of the affordable care act is unconstitutional, Even so, is the rest of the law. And that would include all the consumer protections of the affordable care act. Things like getting coverage for preexisting conditions, making sure women don't get charged higher premiums for the same health plans. So if the Supreme Court agrees with Texas than all those parts of the law go away as well. Usually the federal government defends challenges to federal laws in court. But in this case, the Trump administration is actually agreeing with Texas that the law should be struck down. So California asked for permission to intervene. And now our State Department of Justice is leading the defense of the health law. And why is California taking on this role? California has a lot of steak. Here. We have the biggest gains of all 50 states in terms of getting people health coverage who didn't have it before, So in a sense, we have the most to lose. If the law gets struck down, four million Californians will lose their coverage through medical. Another two or three million people could be priced out of their plans. And California gets $27 billion from the federal government to cover all these folks. So even if we wrote our own health reforms into state law, we just couldn't do it. Without the federal money. We'd have to defund our prison system and our higher education system to replace the federal money that we would lose. And who in our state would be most affected if the law gets struck down. Low income folks and people of color would feel the most pain before the affordable care act about 50% of residents in California, where people of color but they represented 75% of the uninsured. And the health law cut those UN insurance rates in communities of color roughly in half in California, so eliminating the law could start to reverse those gains. And this is concerning right now because we're in the middle of a pandemic that has disproportionately affected people of color In a future where there's no esta and there's no protections for people with pre existing conditions, insurers could conceivably deny coverage to people who have tested positive for the Corona virus. But it's not a given that the law will be struck down, right. I mean the nuances of this case how the court could rule on it. Kept coming up during the Amy Cockney Barrett confirmation hearing. So what are the odds and what is the timeline so the court will hear the case on November 10th and then issue their decision next spring or summer? But you're right. Legal scholars actually think. It's unlikely that the court will strike down the entire law, even with a conservative majority, But these are unusual times, so we always have tohave and anything can happen Handicap in our predictions, But one thing to keep in mind here overall is that until there's a decision, the affordable care act is still the law of the land, and, in fact, the state's marketplace covered California. Just opened for business this week, so anyone who's thinking about signing up for a plan can go there and shop right now until January. 31st health correspondent April Dim, Bosque Thank you. April. Thanks, Brian. You're listening to morning edition on Take, sweetie. Let's.

"A black man. Jacob Blake is shot. We learn more about the details, but we do know he was shot seven times in the back and is now in critical condition. I'm wondering. What's on your minds this week. You know what's on my mind is we're not free. We are fighting. In a war. That We didn't know we were in. But one of the beautiful things about it is that because of the color of our skin, we are automatically fighting on the side of right because we're trying to make the best out of what we've been given. You know, being shot in a way that Mr Blake was shined is beyond tragic. And then when you couple that with the fact that his young sons was in the car Witnessing this tragedy. It's a miracle that he is alive today. But what does that say about how the people who are supposed to protect and serve us move In reality? It says that There is two Americas. Separate and unequal, divided and disunited. He's a boy. Well, this was always part of my reality. Our reality, in fact, growing up in New York City And I'm coming at it. From an immigrant's perspective. I was born in Haiti and came to the U. S. A tw four years old. So in that sense for many people around the world being here is the American dream. But once we are here and can start to connect the dots that make up the racial injustices in this country, we realised that it can be a nightmare for some And while there can be individual successes we see it with, you know the recent vice presidential nominee and we had Barack Obama as a president. There are individual successes. What do those successes mean? When there are constant injustices? So this is something I'm grappling with as a mother as an author for Children's books? That What does freedom mean when there are still these tragedies taking place year after year after year, Visa Boy and doctor Yusef Salaam, their co authors of punching the Air, a novel in verse Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you. Thank you for having us. You're listening to weekend edition from NPR news. And from the news. I'm Queen Achim. While the vast majority of public schools in the state remain closed as a response to the pandemic, more than 100 schools in California have requested and received waivers to re open for in person learning. Here to tell us about that is CBI's Julia McAvoy and Julia even if a school is in a county that's on the watch list, Governor Gavin Newsom created this pathway for them toe open and that is they can request a waiver from their local public health official walk us through that process. Yeah, a school has to apply for a waiver with their local health department. And if that's approved that gets sent on to the state. Once the state approved the waiver, the schools have to follow state Health Department rules for reopening these very strict students have to remain in small groups or cohorts with one or two adults and have all this health and safety measures in place. Here in the Bay Area. 12 schools in Marin County have requested such waivers. They're still waiting for the state to approve, but they could return to in person classes as soon as September. 8th. Oh, Toko Garcia. He's the superintendent of the Sausalito Marin School District, which is applying for waivers. And he says Bayside Martin Luther King Junior Academy with 120 students will essentially reopen with like 12. Many schools are like distinct cohorts within the one building. Each with their own separate bathroom, separate recess time and separate lunchtime. Garcia says he's already seeing an uptick in new students registering for his school. Right. That's because while lots of parents are afraid to send their kids to school, there are also a lot of parents who want their kids to get in person instruction. And now the state has released a list of the first batch of schools that have gotten state approval. There were like 100 of them, but most of the waivers were given to private schools..

Lift and uber say a California judge ordering its drivers to be converted into formal employees could make them shut down operations in the state is NPR's Bobby Allen reports. The ride hailing companies argue that most drivers want to remain independent contractors. The judge's order follows a new law in California aimed at regulating the gig economy.

"With just days or weeks until school starts, the state has come out with new guidelines for schools that want to apply to reopen for in person classes. Even if their campuses are in counties that are on the state's watch list. Ladies Education editor Julia McAvoy joins us with some details that will be of interest to all the parents and caregivers out there. Julia did these new rules apply to all schools? Yeah, Look how basically they do any public charter or private school can ask their public health department for a waiver. But it is on ly for grades transitional kindergarten through sixth. And I think the logic here is that you know, While we know younger kids can get covert 19 they may not spread it as easily as older students who are in 7th 8th or high school grades, But there are some restrictions. Should I be getting my hopes up that I can send my poor kid back to school? You know, there are pretty strict criteria here. If the 14 day case right in your county is greater than 200 cases per 100,000 residents Then you shouldn't apply. What this means in the Bay Area. If you look down the case rate for the county's around here we see that many of our counties are under that 200 threshold and so their schools could conceivably apply. What are the safety criteria that schools have to meet? Yeah, So even if you decide you want to go for this schools have to show plans that illustrate how they would meet public health criteria for lots of things cleaning, physical distancing. How would you do small cohorts of students? And then how would you do testing and tracing, So they've got all of that to handle all the logistics there and then they would also have to consult on any reopening plan with parents. Community and labor organizations, Teachers unions. So what have you heard from teachers about thes waiver possibilities? Well, I know there are 29 different teachers unions in the East Bay that have signed a letter to their local public health officials saying. No individual schools should be allowed a waiver until all schools can open safely in a county and they see the county average of cases doesn't really show the reality of spikes in certain communities. And so they want zip code data used instead of a county average. So the question these teachers air raising is, they say directly related to the Black Lives matter. Movement for racial justice. And the idea of segregated schools. So you know, we know there are Cove in 19 spikes in certain parts of certain counties were black and Latino families and their students live. Let's save San Pablo are East Oakland, and that's where many frontline workers live. So even if a county's cases drop overall, there are still communities that aren't safe, and those communities don't even have adequate testing, for example. So reopening schools would really only further jeopardize those Children and their families. And these teachers want cases in all the codes in a county to drop to safe levels before any school in the county can reopen a physical campus. OK, But what about kids with special education plans? English language learners? Those kids really struggle with distance learning wouldn't reopening schools safely. Be really, really good for them and also a move towards equity. Yes, there is a great fear that some kids who don't do well with distance learning are going to fall further behind here. And so the state has said it will come out with further guidance on how schools might reopen for just small groups of those students. Who need extra help and recall another equity issue here, you know, look private schools that only answer to a board or parents who pay tuition or a charter school that doesn't have a teacher's union. I'm thinking they're going to have fewer hurdles to clear before they can apply for a waiver and reopened as well. Well, there's not a lot of good news going into the school year. Thank you, Julia. Good to be with you in Oakland. I'm Raquel Maria Dylan kick Edie..
