"Still be closed with MK Sally, although he believes that's less of a chance. He believes that Trump's got a shot at closing this gap in winning. By a small margin smaller than the last time, which was 3%. And I guess it depends on what you see and what you believe I don't. I don't take stock in the polls, not because I don't think Mike is an accurate guy, or any of the posters are trying to mislead. I do think that we saw this in 2016. With who answers poles and who doesn't lie on election Day. Hillary was still issuing so a lot. We're going to talk to this vice president about this at 9 25. The big story for me this morning is what happened yesterday when the governor spoke, the governor, Dr Characterised discussing what's going on here with Kobe 19, especially in schools. Kathy Hoffman. I don't know what happened behind the scenes. I wish I did know. But Kathy Hoffman, for whatever reason, has decided that she's no longer going to be a part of this team, at least in the way. It appeared yesterday, tweeting out yesterday that the governor did not consult with her. And the governor talked about, you know that they were dealing with somebody in there with education leaders. And I want you to hear the governor talking about schools and what he thinks should happen. These adjustments are just that they're guidance. Regardless of what we have out there. We're going to have teachers with underlying health conditions and we want them protected and be able to teach virtually.

Rexach afraid of supporting Simmons right to free speech, but calling the comments divisive and detrimental. That's bad. Napolitano reporting for US President Trump today is wondering why there needs to be any new rules put in place for the next two presidential debates against Joe Biden. On Twitter. The president today threw cold water on the idea that's been talked about today asking why he would approve the rules when he easily won last time. Trump tweeted earlier today, saying he won the debate Big Governor Newsome is surveying the damage today at the glass fire in Northern California. It's a bad one. Speaking with reporters and set a Rosa, the governor said they currently have some 17,000 active firefighters working to put out those fires across the state. We peeked just shy about 20,000 active firefighters supporting a mutual aid system from states as Faras, New Jersey, uh, and with substantial resources from states like Texas, including our neighboring states, that glass fire is burned more than 48,000 acres in Napa and Sonoma County's in Arizona.

It's my privilege to introduce Superintendent of public instruction. Kathy Hoffman, superintendent. Thank you, Governor. Do see. Good afternoon, everyone. Thank you all for joining us here today and thank you for joining us and recognition of National suicide prevention month. Way all have a role to play in preventing suicide, And we know that the loss of a single student or school staff member is absolutely devastating to a school community. And this educators, we are often the first to recognize when a student or colleague is experiencing a mental health crisis. And schools across Arizona navigate this unprecedented school year. It is more important than ever that we renew our dedication to suicide prevention and mental health. Like all Arizonans are students and staff have grappled with so many changes and hardships over the past six months. Last year, as governor, DC mentioned over 1500 Arizonans died by suicide. The risk is especially pronounced for young people, especially native American students and LGBTQ students. One loss of life. Two. Suicide is one too many. Which.

"Bitter. Um, Scattered thunderstorms. Tomorrow is all probably in the afternoon. We're finally getting the rain that we need and we want and everything else. Grand in your hand is coming up in a few minutes up to 12 times a day. You listen, too. Can Stu have a chance to win a grand and then you get in your hand? So I can't but you can You can win. I can't good luck. So, uh, the Superintendent Kathy Hoffman. Kathy Hoffman. Has asked for you ready for this again. A plan. A road map to reopen schools she has do see the minimum of following priorities use public health added a disturbing reopening metrics. Is public health that it sucks by the way against 62,000 Tests are still waiting Results from Sonora Quest here in Arizona, Why's every other state doing it? Well, They want a downward trajectory of confirmed cases of covert 19 decrease in positivity rates for testing widespread availability of testing with timely results. Guarantee full funding for distance learning to ensure comprehensive high quality teaching and learning opportunities and critical student service. There you go, but I think they want 28 days of like downward decline. They want all these things that it's just so hard to of it. So are lieutenants what we need, okay? Okay? Sure. Just so you know, a little update from what I've seen right now is that we still have Thie June 29th as the peak June 29th is the peak for confirmed the Chinese virus cases by day's been going down ever since. And considering we're now at July, the last day of July 22nd updated, so we're almost at four weeks with that. July 7th was a peek and deaths. It's hard to figure out what they're even doing with this garbage death certificate Matching where nobody actually has a confirmed test like this is another thing in these take place wise, we believe, and I wish a reporter would ask this, but they don't want it to be known. And you're too stupid to think about it. Why should we believe any of the death numbers here in Arizona if they're going back and doing death certificate matching And they're not even Ted. There's no test to save. These people were positive if they're even reliable, But if they had to minor symptoms of the virus, which is like anything now, on their denser bigot, it's going to be made. Officially a covert death, like we believe any of this And why should we believe anything with cases when you're putting probables in the confirmed case, you're putting antibody tests people that have no don't have it now, but have it They're now being put. They've been being put in the in the positive new case category in Arizona. This is the CDC was doing this to me. That's what the White House took it away from the CDC because they're like you can't just put You can't put new cases down. If they just are antibody cases meeting they had in the past. Now they have antibodies. It's corrupt, corrupt, corrupt. So we have We have the deaths, right? We have the deaths Covert 19 deaths. Going down from July 7th. A peek there. You could almost go back to July 4th. I mean, itjust it's going down, down down, so we're right now, if you want to go by July 7 word 16 days. Of dropping 16 days. I don't know where they came up with the 89 new deaths today. I don't understand that when it because they're going back Death certificate matching that's what isthe Insane. They say in Arizona. I don't get this in Arizona. They claim there are 11 people under the age of 20. That have died from the virus or without reforming. Remember again. If I look at the CDC stats that seems a bit high. Maybe 5 to 14 year old. Only 16 have died from the virus in the whole country. 78 of dying from pneumonia. 16 from Cove. It 190 15 to 24 year old had died in the country. I again I don't trust any of this stuff. Any of it. So some else foryou because, Trump said, We need to cut back on testing. And I think we should, too. And if you sit back and say this is terrible this how can we cut back on testing? Let me take you to a story I found on the Blaise Flashback. Obama administration shut down H one and one testing. Undercutting Biden's covert 19 attacks on Trump. During the 2009 swine flu pandemic, the CDC stopped counting age one and one cases and abruptly advised states to stop testing. Oh, Couple weeks ago, Biden said The crisis in Arizona is the direct result of Trump's failure to lead and his desire to Sloat. The testing down. That's when you know Obama did CBS News in October of 09 Release the findings from a three month long investigation into how the CDC reporting H one n one cases during the swine flu pandemic. Nobody remembers this because nobody cared in late July, CDC ABRUPTLY advice States.

"It is amazing. How blackflies organizations has been able to to rebuild themselves to rebrand themselves. I, mean you're GONNA call and you're going to designate them as American terrorists, the same thing could go for. Back, lives matter. But this time around, they have a lot of support. I mean a with this this tragic death. This murder that took place. Last week in front of the eyes of America, yeah, a lot of people are sympathetic. Things have changed and become more politicised. We'll talk about that later in the show, but right here in the great state of Arizona we have people. Who are trying to capitalize off of this angst, some of May be legitimate. Some of it may be misguided, but I'm looking at it from a standpoint of is just old and tired. In the center ring of the conservative circus. We have representative. Walt Blackman a representative yesterday we had the black faith. Leaders demand action from governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman set the. She's joining blacks. Black lives matter. What do you make of all of this activity? First of all crazy. You know you know. I'm we're losing side of what really happened now? My condolences will out to the Floyd family. We know that it was wrong. The officer is going to be a consequence accordingly. However, it is, thing has transpired into something now. And the extremist left. Groups have taken over the narrative. Uh, on this and Kathy Hoffman a public official. You would think that a message like The came out of her office wouldn't come out of her office, and especially what the black lives matter stamped on her lyric. Insane! What I find curious about all of this is where we look at the the the demands of black lives matter I mean it does nothing to advance afford to address any of the issues that we're talking about here. what happened in? A Minnesota was a tragedy. There's no doubt about it, but what would just makes me Kinda crazy is how all of a sudden everybody starts to Guam on to whatever issue they have, and bring it to the forefront. You can pick a microphone in front of protesters face. You may get two or three different answers. Wipe down there, but for someone who's elected official to join the fray in this way is not only unprofessional, but given the group She's joining I will say so much I would says was also misguided diluted dangerous. Exactly, Y- this. This is my thought on black lives. Matter first of all it's it's a terrorist organization, because it's been deemed, or it's been identified by the FBI. Agent already is so equity. Okay same, so it's the same thing as ANTIFA. Exact okay back. Is. You know at on the thirty first president, tweeted out that the United States is going to. Hasn't it as organization, but this is my feeling. Black lives matter when it started out in two thousand twelve I think it had a different had a different agenda, but it's been hijacked by liberal extremists and folks that infiltrating. These protests and protesters that are are teaming up with some members of black lives matters this. This is my point on this. If black lives matter really met. Why have there been nineteen million black babies board since Roe v Wade. So that we're talk, we're talking about nine hundred nine hundred. black babies in black communities. I've been aborted two loss to abortion until every single day nineteen Dylan's. Roadway. So this black lives really matter to black wives are. Is it just an agenda? Push vital liberal left and the black community, those extremist upon hunger hat on. In the center ring of the conservative circus. We have representative of. What Blackman and you bring up an excellent point I didn't even bring up the whole abortion issue right now. Disproportionate number of the abortions that are committed in this country are done to and buy. American, women of African descent of that is serious one, the other will also throw up. There is the murder rate in some of these Democrat run cities Chicago had had one of the more murders over last Memorial Day weekend than than on in taking. Taking their history and we're talking about black lives matter. That's never ever addressed. You also brought up the fact that this movement had a legitimate start. I do believe it was at University of of Missouri and I forgot the individual's name who started it, but you're absolutely right, representative black men. He was forced out, and the group was taken over, and it was taken over by socialist, and it turned into this radical organization that we see today backed by George Soros. Exactly. So so when you see public officials. Joining this kowtowing it knowing what you know? How do you respond to it? Well first of all with the office, the Superintendent of public destruction. I always thought that that office shouldn't be an elected position. Because when you. When it's an elective position, you'll bring somebody's political ideology and it is a pair that Cathy Katie. Hoffman's political agenda is a leslie agenda that supports a terrorist organization densify by the FBI as a radical group. Now Dat would be just like. A GARDENER Writing in supporting and endorsing, they take K. R. A. Extremist Group and put on their letterhead. This is bad. And it's bad for the people of Arizona. It's bad that we have a public official which is part of the executive. If you mind if if you if you look at it, that's endorsing a group that actively is engaged and committing Hara against those very communities that she says that are having the injustices in threats. According to let so. It doesn't make any sense for her to do that and it's inappropriate for public officials. Even put that out on their lettering. Arizona State representative what Blackman is in the center ring of the conservative circus as someone who who has been working on sentencing reforms and important issues in that area while take a ticket, some abuse from Democrats. What do you make of the Democrats? Demands made yesterday for police reform. Its. Reform it's not GonNa Change through bullying or the taxes have been going on like burning down buildings Are Looting for tennis shoes. What have that is cut reform? That's not gonNA happen. All that is going to do is going to make people dig into their side lords or to talk cells, and that's what's happening now. So the the the far left has really shown their colors by those demands that they're. They're asking for and also by embracing and this ANTIFA rhetoric. Actions you know and in this streets and cities of Arizona. Who would say. That ANTIFA with would w put placed on a bus and since his show in my negative words suicide..

"Entertainment Gatos and chat show earlier today Cathy Hoffman stopped by Arizona superintendent of public instruction the governor of Arizona says schools are gonna open on time so we asked Kathy Hoffman let the row of questions here's one how do you socially distance students in an eight hundred square foot classroom where thirty kids are it just doesn't work are you guys gonna set up like plexi glass partitions and you know Chad city yesterday it's almost like putting the kids in an NHL penalty box I don't think it could be done I I'm pretty sure it can't yeah I think we are going to be challenging for our school leaders going forward finding that balance of how do we implement mitigation strategies like physical distancing but we also want our school environments to be welcoming and comforting to the children the staff at research and so I I think we need to look at the big picture of just how important it is well things like hand washing and deep cleaning and Janet Janet hiding him in the paper I get all that I get all that means there is it's physically impossible to separate thirty or more kids in a small classroom don't you have to just throw that out the window because it just do that then the numbers don't work by and large I'm right there with you that night as I've visited schools and from the classroom by Ben and we by and large have large classroom sizes in Arizona and I will be the first to say that there's going to be cases where it's not realistic that we don't have extra classrooms we don't have extra teachers in fact we have staffing shortages that actually brings me to why it's so important to make sure that our schools has funding stability and the funding they need going forward to make sure that we don't have to make any cuts going into the next academic year do you actually see plastic or plexi glass bean in between students I think those decisions will be last to our local school leaders to the side at all the options on the table and they were based on the CDC recommendations so that is an option all options on the table okay are those a little bit earlier today Cathy hop in Arizona superintendent of public instruction what I wish I would've said Chad was listen I figured out the problem of social distancing kids thirty of them in eighty in an eight hundred foot Arizona classroom you can't spread him out you gonna build them up sini bunker desks right now bunk bed G. like conquer desks he got somebody on the bottom and then six feet up you've got another kid and so I was in a classroom the other day and I measured it's like fifteen or sixteen feet from Florida a ceiling so I think you can get two kids in bulk desks because that'll be solid because nothing's gonna be coming down and maybe potentially landing on the children below including other children and or covert ninety so are you saying that you don't like my idea of building up okay now do you want to hear your awesome question to Kalyana earlier okay Hey Becky Lynn tells you think Chad's question is awesome here okay here we go some parents are gonna be scared to send their kids to school and another thing for the parents is you're you're talking potentially staggered times we've heard all kinds of stuff how does that work in a situation where parents may have to work I mean work staggered times I mean all of this is just for the parents we talk about the kids but we forget that there are parents involved yeah we have been seeing survey data across the state and that the school level as well about parents who are just not ready to send their kids back to school and I I want to acknowledge that fear and anxiety that again that's really scary to send the child and your space where people are congregating when we're still faced with the spread of the nineteen what I am seeing also from the school side is that our school leaders are looking for ways to provide options that they they don't want the family to leave they want them to stay on hold but they will they want to be able to continue with distance learning and provide more options for online learning whenever possible I know our schools are looking at buying more devices making sure families have internet at home working at the state level on policies on how can we invest in expanding broadband internet chat more communities across the state so it's going to be a layered collaborative effort in terms of access to that technology but we encourage our our school leaders will continue to encourage them to to be responsive to what works best for each family so for some families that they are gonna want to have a regular schedule for their child to be at school in person and where the other families may have the resources to be more flexible and and have more options in terms of the time of day that their child is learning and I was recently speaking with some students on her part of my student Advisory Council and they love having this flexible schedule they I had a high school student say how much she loved being able to sleep in in the morning and then you heard fine as any time a day you know and so I think there are some students who are actually thriving and this type of learning environment but I'm also aware of the many students to wear school is the place where they feel the most safe and where they can see their friends and and having both hands on opportunities for project based learning or music or art or those types of things at school which is so critically important all right the sky the often from a earlier today she did a good job Hey it's tough job are they can figure out what happens with kids by the way thirty four percent of Arizona parents say they're not sending their kids back thirty four percent that's a huge number hope it's not like how was to consider bad keep it back his life like because everything I hear like you know the teachers like was one of those in the crowd will be okay

"It's the Gators and Chad show well schools are shutting down in Arizona because of the corona virus so earlier we sat down and we talked about this with Kathy Hoffman Arizona superintendent of public instruction will teachers keep getting paid are your kids going to be out of school for very long here's the first question we asked Hoffman do you think in a week or two every Arizona school be closed down it's really hard to make that prediction but I've been looking to the news and looking to research what I'm reading is that closing schools for a week or two doesn't make a big difference and and this type of issue that it could require closing schools for much longer even a month or two months so that's my concern something we're monitoring very closely is that this might not be a one week or two weeks which and this could be much more long term issue that put that we continue to face and so doing everything we can to prepare and be in close communication with our schools and again at the end of the day making sure that kids have food that they're safe but that should be our absolute top priority let's see I got a kid in second grade and the schools are shut down for the next few months is there a possibility that let's say my kid in second grade in the middle of summer I could go back to school when maybe the corona virus passes goes back to school finishes second grade and then all the sudden the new school year would start like the very next day and my kid would go to third grade great question and that's that's not our recommendation we are working with the legislature to work around how can we prevent that type of situation having from happening because to me that's Canada facts that's punishing that's that's requiring a lot of make up days for teachers for school leaders for families that is on plan for to we want to do everything we can to avoid punitive steps and so but that would require a waiver from the legislature simply do you have and live requirements around the number of school days that kids should be attending so as of today we don't have that we've heard from the legislature but that's something that we're working on just in case it's needed the Hoffman talking or are soon superintendent of public learn and that's what I like to call you don't let me ask you a question your teacher all of a sudden you're kids go home what happens to pay how does that work because I think it's a fair question that that people are going to be asking if the kids aren't there and they're not teaching are they going to still get paid I am equally concerned with that issue as well and that would require additional funding and to make sure that the for hourly staff like that the bus drivers and the cafeteria workers typically they're paid by the hour so if the school closes band typically that would mean they don't have to pay during those close days I am very concerned about that I know that often are educators in that situation rely on those paychecks from week to week and that's something that really concerns me so I have again reached out to the legislature teachers about teachers who pay their own contract typically what what I'm encouraged our school district to do is to continue with their contracts pay during the school closure times I haven't actually heard from the schools that close what what they're doing at this time but I would encourage them to continue with that pay and and we're going to keep working with them advocating to make sure that I think everyone should continue with their pay because this is like an emergency situation we need emergency solutions that would be a huge economic kit if our teachers and our staff in our schools are not paid that we have such harm on our families Arizona superintendent of public instruction Kathy Hoffman thanks for joining us thank you for having me C. KTRE dot com we got a list of Arizona school districts that are closing the Chad what do you think let's open up the phone just kill it let's get it what let's get to the stuff that really matters and that's many of you out there did you make a run on cosco today are you worried about your kids what do I get a job with your kids what is that worry about your job are you worried that that this thing's gonna come and hit you and next thing you know you're gonna be looking for a.

"Advanced teacher recruitment and retention which means competitive pay and benefits across the board. That is Kathy Hoffman the superintendent public instruction, delivering her first state of education address here at the state capital yesterday. And she joins us now on the newsmaker line on Arizona's morning news. Thanks for being with a superintendent. I appreciate it. I didn't get a chance I'll be a chance to hear your speech yesterday. Because I was I was too busy picking up my two little ones one of them from a public school. So even though I'm married to a teacher. And I'm very interested to hear about your ideas. As far as all that goes. I have concerns that maybe there's too much of an emphasis on teacher pay and benefits the expensive the kids or do you see it differently? Good morning. First of all, thank you so much for having me, and the way I see it is that our students need to have highly trained teachers in the classroom in order for any of our children's to have academic success. And so until we address the teacher shortage and make the profession more attractive and do everything we can to retain are highly trained teachers in our classrooms, and how can we expect to even make even have our students make economic success? And so that's that's why I played such an emphasis on teacher paying benefits because as we know we've just even the school year already lost hundreds and hundreds of teachers in December with over nine hundred teachers have left that classroom this year, which is why I felt it was important to redress that issue. No. And you know, what you're absolutely right because in my wife sees it up close, you know, is there's people who just opt for something that pays better. And frankly, it's frightening to think that your kids might end up, you know, stuck in a. Stuffed classroom because there's just not enough teachers to go around. What though what emphasis would you like to place as far as instruction goes in school? Well, when it comes to section, it does come back to making sure teachers do have high quality, professional development, and we for example, for our students that are interested in in seeking stem careers. If they want to be scientists or engineers doctors, we need to make sure that they're able to take those that level of science curriculum by one of the issues, I touched on my speech last night is that an area Zona. We only have one hundred and fifty physics teachers and with that only twenty percent of our high school students are taking physics which is half of the national average across the country. It's typically forty percent of students take physics but in Arizona, it's twenty percent. So how can we expect our children to go onto to become scientists are doctors engineers, and and that's very important to me. And my husband is a to be doctor, and I also have a masters of science to become a speech therapist. And so we're we're very concerned about the future of Arizona having. Having people in these fields taking, you know for our future the future of our state. We're talking about there was on a state superintendent of public instruction Kathy Hoffman who just delivered her state of education speech at the state capital yesterday. Let's talk real quickly. If we can't about school safety. Do you back the the governor's plan to put more resource officers on campus? Well, I am actually very pleased and encouraged that he plays such an emphasis on having more counselors in the school because I think we need to make sure we have those make sure this is a balanced equation when it comes to school safety because what I've seen in the classroom is what a school I worked at a title one school, lots of students that didn't have unfortunately did have experienced did experienced trauma in their homes, and they would have greatly benefited from having a counselor social worker in our school that we had neither at the school. Right worked. And and I think that we want to have people with that type of mental health training that had their master's degrees. And and how do you best provide resources for students that have embody or depression or suicidal thoughts, and that that's the best way to address school safety in our schools. But also having someone who's trained in a law enforcement officer with a weapon also helps keep students safety. You don't agree. I think in some cases, I do think. That that should be left to the district to decide if if that's absolutely necessary. I don't think every school needs one. All right. Thank you very much. That's a state superintendent of public instruction Kathy Hoffman. Joining us on Arizona's morning news the day after her state of education speech didn't sound like the governor has really convinced her that we want more resource officers on campus, seven forty nine. Now. Let's get back over to the valley Chevy dealers traffic.

"Hoffman the superintendent of public instruction in studio with us right now, as we talk about the challenges that the education species in the studio, and hopefully some of the solutions missile, but I wanted to ask you a bit of a different you talked about the fact that you educator, you spent time in the classroom. What drew you to the profession to begin with? I just loved working with children, I as a speech therapist. I love that. I could teach children to communicate. That was my main overarching job is to teach children to communicate. And I specifically worked with children with disabilities who truly have a lot of challenges to overcome in order to to communicate and the communication skill is so probably need and not just in the classroom, but to communicate with families and friends, and so for me, it was very rewarding to work in partnership with other educators working with their costume, teachers and working with other special education providers to. To ensure that a child is successful not just at school but out in the community. So they can have success in life, and everything can I tell you what I remember from speech therapy as a kid I had I had a pronounced now pronounced lisp when I was a kid, and that's what I learned seven silvery. Swans? Swam silently fee word that was pretty good. Now, say it fast can't can't do it. So I, but I appreciate it is one thing to have a superintendent of public instruction that sees us as a policy issue and sees this as a political issue, but I I'm for one and encouraged anytime that position is filled by someone who's actually spent time in the classroom. It's been face to face with children knows what it's like to walk the halls if you will for lack of better terms inside of a school because I think we lose sight of of the practical nature of what it's like to go to school Monica. You have kids that walk the halls themselves. Right. Yeah. In almost every day. There's some kind of conversation about red for Ed. And supporting teachers in you rattled off a number of issues, some that we know about others that we don't quite realize teacher morale, for example. I would think that everybody loves their teachers, and that wouldn't be an issue, but you also mentioned benefits. So I'm wondering whenever someone takes office or starts a new job. They have their top goals or their top ambitions about what they wanna do. With that position. What are yours as you sit here today? One of my long term goals exactly that in terms of the perception of teachers and as a way to help address the teacher shortage because we do want our young whether they're still in elementary school and high school, we want them to see to have that consideration of I want to be a teacher when I grow up because we desperately need to have educators and order to have successful education. It's just it's the basic fundamentals is that we need to have those teachers who are passionate if you without the passion, and the dedication then it's all his last. We lose that creativity. And so I I do want to make sure that we're talking and balance about both the issues making sure we're still talking about the need for funding the need for competitive pay and all those other issues that are critical for teacher retention, but also highlighting all the amazing achievements of our teachers talking about the programs that are having great success across the state because we truly have some of the most dedicated teachers in the country, and we I. You could make the argument to do it in Arizona. You really have to want to do it. Right. I mean, you could make the argument that they're they're really a committed here. Again, we're talking to superintendent of public instruction Kathy Hoffman in studio with us right now. So miss, and I consider myself in one of the arguments even last year that I was making like a fiscal conservative. If you will. The idea that the solution to all education problems is just more money. I kind of bristle at that a little bit. I can acknowledge when you look at funding levels g where a lot lower than we should be, but is money in and of itself, the solution to all of our problems, and how are you dressing that? Definitely know where you're coming from. And I that's why when I talk about funding I try to make it even more explicit about what the money is four. And so for me. We feel better won't you? Please. Let's go back to the example. I mentioned before the teacher who you're after. You're seeing his salary go down that doesn't make fiscal sense. That's not gonna keep teachers in the classroom. We need just like in any profession to feel that we're advancing in our careers. And that we and then also we can have a salary that is making it affordable for the cost of living in this rounding area. We can find housing. Yes. Housing and all those other pieces the healthcare benefits. So we we do need to look at it holistically. And so I I do tend to try to be more specific rather than just saying we need more money. I try to be specific about why? And what it's for. And let's be really concrete about it rather than just say more money because I agree with you that tends to go in one ear and out the other, and you can understand that the if there's a common refrain for education Zona is we need more money, we need more money. And there are plenty of people out there, some listening right now would say, hey, we keep giving you more money. Is there an end to this is? Zero bottom to this is there, and what do we get for that investment? Right. So for another example, we don't have full day kindergarten across the state, and we know that that affects thoughts of kids and lots of families and early education as critically important. So there's just very specific programs like that that I would consider basic needs for to have a strong educational system. And so let's look at why are what we're getting for that money rather than just talking about the dollar amount time for now we've heard that you're doing an audit of the office. What what what is like how many paperclips they have people stealing the pins? What is the audit? And what is your goal in doing that? The biggest goal for the audit. Is that I truly believe new administration that we need to be held accountable to the taxpayer to the tax payers. And so we are starting this audit process where we have we've already identified and announced he will be on that audit committee. It's people who have school financial expertise, and they're going to help us identify an audit auditing vendor in the process for this audit. But basically the end of the day, it's all about we need to be accountable. We as a department as superintendent, we need to be accountable for making sure that with all the millions of dollars that we are entrusted with that it is being properly allocated and also effectively and efficiently allocated because the the schools and the students are relying on on that allocation every day, and so it is important for us to do the audit and understand what's happening warms, my heart. Yeah. I mean. You I can understand a lot of people have that concern. Thank you so much for your time today. We appreciate it. Thank you so much again for having the superintendent of public instruction, Kathy Hoffman, the newly minted Kathy Hoffman.

"Is yeah, no taxes being raised balanced budget. And he also brought up that water is first on his list. That's not entertaining water. No. It's not well. Well, that that was the first issue that he raised in his speech speech was about forty some minutes. But you're right. The first issue is water. And I kinda I just kind of cocked my head a little bit like water. Well, wait a minute. Does that mean that there's something buried beneath the speech somewhere, and we'll get to that in a minute. Because usually what you wanna do because you've got people's attention. Is you wanna come out and hit them with something? That's oh. Wow. Immigration, teachers, the border. How's the economy, and he did that don't be don't get me wrong? He did that. But he said, and I quote water is first on my list. And he even joked about it saying that's not something that's going to get the headlines now, stay with me. I would agree with that. This is not an. Issue that leads the news. It doesn't make for a snappy. Headline doesn't. I don't know why he started off with it. But okay. Well, he said he started off with it. Well, he didn't say that I'm assuming he started off with it. Because when he was on the campaign trail, apparently every every Arizonan that he bumped into asked him about the water problem. We didn't we talked about teachers, and we talked about the border every time we had governor Doug Ducey in. I mean, again, don't get me wrong is water important. Well, of course, it is. I mean, it it's one of the most important natural resources. And there are people already on Twitter saying they never address climate change. Look, I would not put that as even a top ten concern at right for the average citizen angry because we don't have bands. We don't have even odd days to use water. We don't have restrictions yet. But that's what he started off with. So okay. Yeah. This was one of the big parts of the speech. I thought and that's why we're including enough dollars to put a cap on every campus that needs one. Okay. So one of the big parts of his speech. He mentioned parkland Florida in the school shooting. He mentioned how last spring. He wanted this school safety plan. And it was I think it was called safe Arizona schools plan. It didn't get a vote kind of pushed pushed away by some legislators do really wanted to get something done on it. But he is saying that we need to protect the kids and a cop on every campus that need one has to happen. And he did say that they have money for that. So I think yeah, how's it going to get that? Well, I think I've introduced he's coming in next week. We'll ask him how much is it gonna cost is one cop on every campus enough, and that kind of goes against what Kathy Hoffman the new head of Arizona, feels she doesn't she's thinking more of no cops. She's thinking more about winning and more intercessions colleges, which I would think that would be good too. But. But under have all the money. No. But under his plan will cops get free access to water when they're on duty. I don't know. I told I don't not we'll he get. Well, we pay for their water consumption. I don't know. Yeah. Okay. Goodness. Gracious water. All right. You're listening to the big four at four. This is how we start the four o'clock hour with four big blockbuster stories..

And to talk about the real issues in our schools and make sure that every child has access to high quality education. I'm doing great excited right now. I just can't believe this is finally here. It's a little bit surreal because I've been working for this moment for I just can't wait to get into office and start the work that I've been planning for the past couple of years.
