"KGB D News. I'm Kate Wolf Mayors from large cities across California, sent a letter to the governor and the states who were in the superintendent of schools this week, urging them to do more to open schools. San Jose Mayor Sam Accardo joined me to explain why and why this letter is needed right now we're saying, I think what Most folks feel, but I think we all recognize there are lots of barriers for us to be able to get Children back in school safely, and so really, what we're calling for his first really focused. Our resource is Likely the testing resource is in PP. Another resource is insured. We can get schools open, particularly elementary schools, K through sixth and then Secondly, we really want to see a single statewide standard. Based on the best science about when school should open. Let's all go there rather than this plowing every individual PT a school board union, etcetera. Really fight it out in this sort of political tug of war. That ultimately is a great disservice tour kids, particularly Children from broken families, Why is it more beneficial for them to be back in the classroom, then remain with distance learning? That's enormous burden. Obviously, the learning loss is something that I think when we look back on this pandemic, and we look at how particularly Children of color Children from low income families have suffered from learning loss from lack of access to school nutrition. School lunches, access to a school nurse and healthcare ability to engage in socialization. I think we're going to find that the harms to Children from this school shut down. Greatly exceed whatever risk that they would experience from Cove it and going to school and there's no reason why we can't get being stakeholders agree as a state what we believe is safe and what's not So it's not left to the tug and pull very political force at each and every school district. So you're you're advocating for more statewide action here instead of this kind of piecemeal approach. Yes. Whether it's parents who are concerned about whether or not their child may accept Grandma when the child comes home or its teachers who are concerned about Infection that too often these decisions are being made to protect the adults and I recognized the imperative of doing so on. Don't discount it, But really, what's being lost is the welfare of the child. And the evidence the scientist suggesting that Children can return to school safely. We're seeing that this country we're seeing it in other countries. If we do it right, and obviously we need to have the conditions in place low contagion rates in the community. A CZ well as proper precautions taken in schools. The district's do need to come to labor agreements with teachers unions before anyone can go back to class. What if, say, January comes, kids are still learning from home. Would you get involved in negotiations at that smaller level at that point? I don't pretend that this can be solved District by district in negotiations with every single teachers union you look we have decided that many employees are essential employees. The parents of these Children In my city who are working in taquerias and working as nurses in hospitals are essential workers and they're required to be there because we recognized how essential they aren't helping our community move forward. As should teachers be as well. And so it seems to me that a state mandated ultimately is going to be necessary list decide on what a threshold is for safety. Opening of schools and let's decide what those conditions are that need to be met statewide. And let's all agree that we all move. When we meet that threshold. There's a lot we could do for working together, but we all have to agree that it's imperative to get the school's open first. That's San Jose Mayor Sam Accardo. Thank you, Mayor. Thank you.

"Kate Wolf. Please. Please, Please pass this still and I'm gonna go finish treating my daughter. Thank you. That's Eastbay Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks. You might have caught a viral video of her this week, casting a vote while holding her four week old baby. She was on maternity leave and asked to vote remotely. But the speaker of the Assembly, Anthony Rendon, said no here to talk about it with us from cuties politics team is Katie or and Katie Rendon said No, because you Khun Onley vote by proxy if it's Cupid related, and he said maternity leave didn't qualify. Yeah, that's right. It's important to note that Rendon has never been in favour of remote or or proxy voting. He feels that it could present some legal challenges to the bills that are voted on this way. So in his thinking, the only people who could initially vote by proxy were those who were either sick with Cove it or had been exposed to a cove. It and Buffy Wicks did not meet that criteria. However. After her speech went viral. He came out and said he wanted to make a full apology to her. He didn't need to be inconsiderate and that going forward he will consider the unique needs of his members and that the assembly needs to do better. Right and that and that caught my attention a little bit. I know it. But your is this idea of of the unique needs when in fact, you know, being a mother and having to care for your Children, while working isn't unique. Yeah, I was speaking to a political science professor at Sacramento State, Kim Na Alder, and she was the one that first pointed this out to me that it's not unique to have a baby. Most women in their lifetime will have a baby. In fact, Rendon's own wife gave birth to their baby last year. So it shouldn't be treated as this special circumstance that you have to somehow accommodate. It should be treated as a normal part of life that happens to up to 50% of people in this world, not something that is radical or even unexpected, Totally. And you know, it's 2020 and working moms are commonplace at this time. We haven't gotten this idea yet. How do we remedy this situation? How do we address the blind spot here? Well, I think one of the issues particularly in the Legislature, is that even though the number of women in office there is increasing, it's still relatively low compared to the percentage of men in those office. And the way our society works. Women are still expected to be the primary caretakers of Children and especially babies, which said that the Legislature needs to evolve. And they need to determine, for instance, how a situation like hers should be handled in the future. Especially right now, there are other lawmakers that are pregnant and some that have recently had babies. Should part of maternity leave, be remote participation so that Isaac legislator can still vote for bills that my constituents care about while I take leave or did not do that, because we should respect that leave, or we make it an option for legislators. Right? So the situation also got the attention of the California Legislative Women's caucus. They're chair and vice chair, issued a statement saying that the Legislature basically has to do better. And that they have to create a workable environment for women. And they also used to say that you know, Wicks and other women in her position in the Legislature have a certain amount of privilege, but we need to create better circumstances for everyone, including women of color and low income women, who often don't have the same options.

What do you say to them? Totally. I think that is something that we all feel like For me. It's really I'm just I'm sick of having to tell my toddler to not go and like interact with another kid or go to the playground. But one way to think about it is that the virus does not care, And it's going to keep going regardless of that. Ultimately, the sacrifice is there for us there for families and they are for those strangers that we just see walking, you know, down the street. They're for hospital staff. And this is why the scientists came out and asked the W H O to raise awareness about the possibility of airborne transmission not because we know it's happening, right. It's still being studied. But because it's possible and since we don't know they're saying, let's be safe instead of being sorry later, Okay. Thank you. Laura Cliven. Thanks, Brian. Now we turn to a completely different topic. Jury duty State lawmakers are introducing new legislation to diversify jury pools in court trials by expanding who is summoned for service. These Kate Wolf has more A fair Juries Act would require jury commissioners toe add everyone who has filed taxes in the state to their list of possible jurors. For decades, commissions have called people to jury service using only two sets of data. DMV records and voter registration rolls. However, studies have proven that these two lists alone don't get a representative section of the population and especially leave out black Californians. Oscar Barbro is the chief deputy public defender in Solano County. If you don't register to vote, or you feel somewhat disenfranchised, you're not going to make it on the list. And if you live in an urban area or don't have the financial resource is for a driver's license. You would be left off, too. This leads to issues in fair trials. State Senator Nancy Skinner is a co author of the bill. Our jurors now in California are wealthier and whiter, then California residents as a whole. And certainly wealthier and whiter than most people who they're sitting there to judge Skinner and other lawmakers hoped that adding all people who have filed taxes in the state to jury commissions lists will help alleviate the disparities. The bill will be considered in the state Legislature reconvenes likely in late July. I'm Kate Wolf kick you Edie News and I'm Brian. What you're listening to morning edition on more news from NPR.
