According to some photos that were taken undercover a few parents rights groups. Got a hold of this. And they blew the whistle on this high school. The american flag while all of those other flags are hanging up in a nice prime location flung across furniture in the classroom now after they found out about this because it started to get some attention and traction on twitter with some parents groups who were thankfully appalled and this is part of the pushback in california even at the smallest level. It's coming for more parents. Getting involved with their kids classroom. Some parents groups called out l. unified. And you would think that they would say oh. We had no idea this was going on.

And i'm going to employ people across the country if you are a teacher or if you are a person who works for a union take advantage of your rights and get out of the union if they are using the money to support political causes better not important to

Brittany Packnett Cunningham talks about effective policing in America
"Thank you for being here. I just have so many questions for you. You're someone who I admire everything that you're doing especially during this time. So the first question I wanna get to is you served on the Ferguson Commission as well as President Obama's Task Force on twenty first century policing. We talk all the time about how it's important to have a seat at the table. My having a scene at those tables went insights did give you about policing in America. I think one of the most important insights is that a very people who are suffering most from the injustices have to be at the center of the conversation about what the correct equitable and just version of our communities actually looks like I think from a more detailed standpoint. One of the things I really learned or rather was confirmed just how much this is really systemic issue that there are people who enter that profession because they have altruistic motives and they. Want to help their community and what they find is that they've entered a system that frankly was not built to truly serve and protect all of us equitably, and that covers up and is permissive to so many violent acts in our communities. Lastly, I think F from a policy standpoint on of the things I really learned was just how dispersed policing policy is there are over thousand police departments in the entire country and so yes, there is work that has to. Be Done at the federal level and the Department of Justice needs to take great care to pay attention to those things were. There are also a number of things that have to happen at the level of the state legislature that governor, the state Senate, and there are many many things that have to happen locally that often it is near to are appointing and hiring police chiefs that often it is local police and fire boards who are approving police union contracts that. Can Be worded in ways that are not transparent to the public and can actually subvert justice. So these are the things that we have to pay attention to at every single level, federal local and state to remember that if we are honestly truly going get to a place where we dismantle systems that do not work for us and replace them with systems that work for all of us, we have to be diligent at every single level of the police say conversation. I love how you went through just. When we're looking at elected office public office. Criminal Justice Reform, police reform it runs through so many offices and this is why people really need to pay attention to who they elect because these people really do have a strong impact on policing in America. So thank you for walking us through that certainly. So I wanna get into something that a lot of people actually dean controversy. The words defend the police. This is scary to so many people at the beginning of the movement that we've seen over the past few weeks. There wasn't a lot of support for defend the police. But over the past few weeks, we've actually seen support increase in your own words. What does it mean to defend the police and why is it important? So. What people have to understand is that defunding the police is half of the equation. It is a necessary rallying cry to provoke people's imagination and belief that there could be more. But once you move the money and you divest from traditional structures policing that have continued to carry out violence in black brown indigenous communities. You'd have to move that money and reinvest into the things that truly keep our communities safe. So the journey that Minneapolis is going through right now is a great example. If this they said, we're going to dismantle our current police department. They were led to that by not only their city council, but by the organizers activists that made such a radically imaginative future possible by. The organizers like the first black student body president at the University of Minnesota who compelled her schoolmates to push the school to disconnect and end their contract with the Minneapolis apartment followed by the case, twelve will system that did the same. So what we're seeing as Minneapolis is on this journey of reimagining reconstructing public safety in their city is, yes that is managing a police department and then it will happen in phases. I think. So often when people hear defunding the police, they get scared because immediately here kind of the chaos of Gotham without the protection of Batman and that's what we're talking about. This will have been in pieces will happen thoughtfully and most importantly, it will happen with the. Leadership of the community because the second step there is to actually gather the community and the mental health experts, the community organizers, this safety experts, the public health experts, gathering those folks together say, what are we going to design in place? Where should the money that used to go to policing go instead? So when we see a school district like La Unified, school district, one of the largest invitation where we see them say that they're going to end the practice of having police in schools that's tens of millions of dollars that can then be reinvested into different aspects of education that our young people desperately need into creating systems of restorative justice into creating systems, support, and mental health care. And counseling for young people in ensuring that, there are no more schools that have lease officers, but no counselors and mental health supports. So these are the kinds of efforts that we are talking about. When we're talking about defunding the police were not talking about leaving people without protection. We're talking about building protections in in the system, baking it into the system from the ground up so that people are living happy healthy, whole thriving lives from the very beginning. So they don't have to be over policed when something has happened or when something is suspected to have happened we're talking about a broad community vision here of building safety from the ground up instead of over police people from the top down.

I'll do that at seven thirty and also the teachers strike, and let me spend a minute or two talking about the teacher strike in the city of the angels LA unified school district and a deal is going to happen. I mean, they're not all that far apart the big issues are, of course, the size of the classrooms, and the money that's being paid that the teachers want in terms of raises, and whether or not they'll be, nurses, etc. Counselors librarians at the schools. Well, it's not they're not that far apart either in terms of actual numbers or in philosophy. Now, if you look at the government shutdown man, they're far apart not only in terms of money, but basic fundamental philosophy. Not. So in this case. So if a deal comes down, I it it probably will happen by the intervention of Garcetti and Gavin Newsom who are jumping into this. And you'll see a lot of pressure from them, even though there's no jurisdiction here. There will be sit down as a matter of fact, I think Garcetti is calling for a meeting at city hall with both sides with him. There is a mediator. So the the school district has already offered reduce some class sizes and provide the school with nurses, librarians and counselors and so as they're moving a little bit closer. And then I wanna talk about something else said where it's it's a fundamental difference. LA unified is offering a six percent.

"You know, we all do things and other people do that we need to step up, and and, you know, be human and forgive when appropriate and ask for forgiveness and accept that. And you know, and there's a good reason that my maker tells me to not live in my past, right? Well, no one ever got never got anywhere productive looking behind them. You know know, you gotta keep your eyes on the prize. And by the way for people wondering, why Paddy's having this deep philosophical conversation. If you just joined the show, I started this show talking about this video that's on the blog today where they asked one hundred people what their biggest regret was. And it was just very interesting. I watched it and overwhelmingly I mean over ninety percent I didn't count, but I guess over ninety percent were directly related to interpersonal relationships, and whether it was with your family or a relationships you stayed in more and a lot of people express regret for that. And I think a lot of people if you've had a really bad relationship, you get to the end of it, and you look back and go I shoulda cut that a long time ago. But you know, everything happens the way it's supposed to happen. I feel very strongly about that. And for whatever reason it it just was supposed to keep going until you decided it was over Pat along with us. She's not just having a deep thought when Patty today. Oh, no. Yes. I am. But you know. Yeah. Just oh, shoot you. I had a a nice start. And then you you chipped in there, and I lost it. That's okay. I appreciate the phone call as always. Now you too you too new videos. Very interesting. It's very interesting. I wonder if the teachers in the LA unified school district bringing this topic full circle will look back on their behavior and regret it when they're standing in front of a classroom of seventh graders lecturing about bullying only to have a seventh grader go. Oh, yeah. What about yelling at substitutes, you made our substitute cry? How about that? I guess and by the way, we could be barreling towards this in Denver. Because Friday is I think the last day, I guess Friday. They're going to decide whether or not to strike, David. I we're talking about this before the show. I am in one hundred percent agreement with Dave when I say, I do not think teachers should be allowed to strike ever. First of all, if you want me to believe you care about kids, the number one way to make you think you're full of crap is the walk out of the classroom. Italy those kids, I don't if you want to strike strike in the summer, but they don't know why they striked during the school year because they know it inconveniences parents. And they know that parents are going to be the people they need to advocate their position. So what they do is. They talk about how horrible things are. And how awful things are in. Oh, we can't do this. We don't make enough money, blah, blah, blah. And all of a sudden, the parents are like, oh, this is terrible. My teachers are amazing. Teachers may be amazing, by the way teachers may be incredible. But they get the teachers they get the parents all ginned up if they really cared about the kids they'd strike in the summer. They figure this stuff out in the summer. And continue to teach in educate the children that they allegedly care about more than anything in the entire world. So we'll see what happens in Denver. What's fascinating about the conversation. In Denver is very similar to every conversation. That's happening in districts around cherry creek in Littleton. They're both high paid districts, and this is what you hear. Oh, they could get to another district to make a lot more money. They could but how many teachers are cherry creek and Littleton actually hiring. You know, there's a limit not everybody could rush to cherry creek in Littleton schools and get a job for more money. So this whole thing I'm just a little over it considering education just got a huge pop last year in the legislature in in terms of money. I I don't know. I know teachers that work in charter schools that work for less money than regular public school teachers, and they're absolutely amazing. And they love their jobs, and they are devoted and dedicated to the children in those charter schools when they say I care about kids more than anything. I believe him because they're actually living it, so that's just me being snarky not saying that all public school. Teachers don't love kids. I don't want to create that impression. But if you walk out of a classroom for a strike. Sorry. I just question you at that point when we get back. I am really interested for you to hear this next interview Seattle Washington has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that compassionate governance is an abject failure. When it comes to homelessness and drug addiction and Denver is about to do the exact same things. Christopher Rufo comes up with his article, which is stunningly good next before care. Trinidad? What's coming? Oh. And you can win a thousand dollars the keyword for cash. Contest is coming up after the news. Now what's coming up? Karen trinidad? Thank you, Mandy. The graduation rate is up in Colorado and an adult woman in Denver has developed measles..

"What's in your wallet? Newsradio time one thirty seven. We're we're it's Wednesday. I don't know what we're doing. We're just getting the show people one foot in front of the other keep swimming and all that LA teachers in the LA unified school district or out on strike, and they're striking because they have class sizes that run thirty nine forty students. Now, the notion that class size is all that it's about when it comes to student achievement is ridiculous. And I say this as someone who went to Catholic school where teachers regularly had thirty five students in their classroom. The differences they had thirty five students that they were able to discipline properly and that were held accountable for their bad behavior. So we have thirty five or forty students that are listening paying attention and expecting to be punished if they do something wrong. It's what different than if you have thirty five or forty students in a school district that is allowing students to get away with everything because parents complain if you you know. Punish their kids so much different situation. But the line of thinking that classroom size is the key to student achievement and is really on display in L A. Because now students say our teachers say, look, we want more money, and we want smaller class sizes. Smaller class sizes are affront that are trotted out by teachers unions. Teachers unions love to talk about class size. And don't get me wrong. I know that it's better to have twenty kids in a classroom than it is to have thirty five or forty. But to have thirty five and forty well behaved students, you shouldn't have a problem. What I've always wondered about this is how in college. Do you have classes with five hundred students in that? Because I had more than one class with five hundred students in it, and I even had some upper level classes like I had to take this God awful statistics class. Then I swear to you was taught by Ben Stein as ferris Buehler's teacher. It was like this. And then you take this column and you add over here. And then you take the mean average, and it was Connell Hurriyet. Con exactly. And there were one hundred twenty people in that class. Now, college is different. It's a voluntary proposition. You're not dealing with students who don't want to be there. They just don't show up. I mean, let's be real. I get all that. I know that all intellectually. But there is it's almost like a a wolf in sheep's clothes clothing to say it's all about class size. Because when you say, we need to have smaller classroom sizes that means we have to have more teachers and the teachers unions have figured this out. They're not stupid. They want to grow their membership and the easiest way to grow their membership is to force districts to hire more teachers the easiest way to do that is to tell parents that teachers can't possibly teach class sizes this big and we have to reduce class sizes or everyone's going to fail and live in van down by the river and the teachers unions win every single time. Every time we'd hang on Zack's gotta suggest that how should I get through my Wednesday. You gotta suggestion for me. We are wistfully wallowing to the wackadoo elements of the world. Wow. That's a lot of words. Zack. A little bit of a cake out of it. One of your word. I am now we have wackadoo good, but I can't work through Wednesday. Whack a doodle really a verb adjective for your wistfully, wallowing. Some wallowing the feeling of wallowing. I don't like that. It's too. It's too inert. I need to like barrel forward but bear on Tuesdays. I worked my way with all the stuff that's going on that you have to Wade through Wade through it. I don't know kind of like Wade through we're going to Wade through. Does that sum to pass Davis? Give a thumbs down. Dave's like the king. Right. Dave Justice sitting in his kingly box. And he's got his thumbs up or is that right now sideways, and then it goes down. Oh, he gave you a double thumbs down. Zack. We need to focus. Ancient Rome, and I didn't realize we were gladiators. Well, you don't know that Dave was one of those those gold things around his head all the time. The little flowers. Yeah. Comes to work like that. All the time. We have to tell them to stop wearing the toga. Dave enough with the toga sop already. But he does like to make grandiose pronouncements yoga. I know. I know, but it was inappropriate in the workplace K. Nobody new either. Thanks back. I appreciate your efforts. Yep. Misguided as they were I do appreciate that. The other interesting thing that's happening in California is that. The teachers who are striking they're picketing. So they have this big picket line. Well, guess what? The schools are still open and adults have to be at the school to be in the classroom with these students, and they have substitutes that are coming in and the teachers these wonderful bastions of virtue that we are told only care about the kids, and oh my God that Donald Trump. He's teaching children how to bully. So what are they doing when the subs try to come to work there surrounding their cars? They're chanting turn around. They're calling them scabs to toots. Which really rolls off the tongue scabs to toots. And they're generally doing this thing that is widely recognized as bullying so kids, be sure attention, these teachers will show you how to do it just throwing that out there. The other thing that I did a quick search on listen to this. First of all you have to know that the LA unified school district is one hundred percent in support of their illegal immigrant population. They even have stuff on their website. Stating that very fact they are one hundred percent in favor of illegal immigration. They love it. They can't get enough of it. Listen to this from an article about the cost the physical costs of illegal immigration in California, total funding per pupil from all state, federal and local revenue sources was eleven thousand six hundred forty nine dollars with roughly nine hundred twenty three thousand students in the state with illegal immigrant parents. These students represented a total cost of ten point eight billion dollars out of a total two thousand eight k through twelve education budget of seventy two million. Kind of a big deal. So I almost want to say to the LA unified teachers, you guys report you so you love illegal, immigration classes, rooms are overflowing. Probably should've thought that through AB has another suggestion of what I should do through Wednesday. What do you got for me? Well in lieu of the national western stock show being in town. I think you should Bertha through Wednesday. I should what for what is that? What are those words you're saying, I don't even know whip and spur L whip and spur that applies that I'm beating David grant. So I kinda like it. It means that you're going back some of to whip through Wednesday. How about I just go with whipped through Wednesday. Where are you gonna live to Wednesday like alliteration? I like a litter alliterate is key here for me. I'm a big fan of alliteration. I like it, Amy. I'm gonna whip through Wednesday. I can send you a set of Spurs, and you confirm to can I wear Spurs with formal wear or do you have to just relegate the Spurs to more casual outfits? Oh, not at all. Not at all. If you have a nice set of Spurs nicer booed anytime you want. How do you Spurs attached to the boot? I've always wondered that question. With a leather strap. Also, they kind of tie around the boot. Yeah. That makes sense. Now, we just I was just left to stock show local girls for showing their coats one one one of our girls won grand champion today. Shout out to the better family instead of Colorado. Very good. Now. What does that get a goat raiser? Now. I know that the kids who raise cattle because I was in four H when I was in high school and the kids you raise cattle, they sell the cattle, right? And then they, you know, they they sell them for slaughter or whatever. But what happens with the champion goat? What do they do with the goat? Well, this year, the national western is leading the top six the champion and reserve champion out of each of their classes light middle and heavyweight we'll all go to the sale and for the first time ever that goats are going to be on display at the athletic club. Like, the Sears will be at the ground. Palate. They're letting the ghosts go to the Deborah athletic club on play starting. I believe this weekend. But are they can't selling the goats? And if so what you sell the goats for they use for. I mean, what are you? It will be sold at auction for the junior livestock auction all. Will be sold. Right. And and it just depends on how much the money that the people bid on them. And then it goes back to those kids. A portion of it goes back to the scholarship fund for the national poster. But the rest of it goes to the trial showed the goat. And usually goes into a scholarship fund for them now, but who buys the goats and for what purpose was what I was asking they go to slaughter. Okay. They'll go there their market goes. So they'll they'll go for me. And you know in the past you've had that big Companies, inC, transgresses companies you read by your steers, and and your show lamps and Shoko. And. So, you know, I would I would love to encourage everybody to get out and support that you and your lifestyle because let me tell you what these kids are down there. They're working hard all year long. And when they're working hard at this school. Yep. And it's a direct correlation that these kids no work ethic, and it and it transfers throughout their life. And you know, we just we need to support these kids for because you know, you're talking about forty kids in a classroom. If you've got forty hard working ranch and farm kids in a classroom, you can educate forty kids. Yeah. Unfortunately, we don't send educatable children's to school anymore because mommy, daddy. Make you excuses for them all the time Amen to that. And you know, instead of working hard, and and these are the cream of the crop. I mean, these kids work hard, they work hard all year long. And I I know this girl she was up at the crack of dawn, she had to lamb born at home deportable. I came down and showed her go today. Wow. You know, hats off to the. These tips. That's fantastic. I appreciate the great information. I I knew that they sold the cows for slaughter. But I was like do they sell the goats for milking? Or what do they do? But. Note class, they do, but these were market goes. Okay. The market goes we'll go for that. And then you've got your lamps your, hugs and your steer. So and you got the breeders site to but for all the junior lifelock kids today. Right. Exactly. I appreciate all the info. Amy, very well done you should work for the western stock show. Well, I just need to know where I can drop your Spurs by. Oh, well, we're in Texas. I was just if you drop me some Spurs that I will use them on Dave. Okay. Hey, I'll give you some information. I am going to put her on hold grant teller where we are. Thanks, amy. Amy springing me some Spurs. You guys are in trouble. Big fat. Trouble Patty, you're on KOA NewsRadio. Oh my gosh. Spurs and then yesterday, dude, you're getting a little early. Oh, no, no. I'm just letting it out on the air. Now. This is how I treat them all the time behind the scenes, I'm just being more open about it. We'll thank you. I appreciate that. And, you know, nice segue, Mandy, because it's it's well for us to realize when we have or done something wrong that you know. And I agree. I mean, you know, anybody that's honest with themselves is going to have a regret in life. I I don't believe anybody. I have no regrets at all. What whatever. But. Yeah. And isn't it strange how as humans, we somehow feel at ease saying or doing something hurtful to someone that we love and sometimes we treat complete strangers with more appreciation and respect. And that's just kinda sucks, and I've been there. And I think most of us have I, you know, especially with kids. This is one of the things that you as a parent, you try to you recognize it in your kids because I mean, my daughter is very well behaved. She's a good kid. But she's better with other people than she is with us straight up. And I think that goes true for a lot of kids. And there are a lot of times when I say to her when she says something snarky to me or she gives me attitude or she talks to me in a tone. I'd appreciate I just look at our say would you talk to your friends that way if the answer is no, then you damn well, better not talk to me that way. I mean, that's just the way it is. And just making a recognize that just because we're your family, and we're gonna love you forever. Doesn't mean that you're not you have licensed to be a jerk. Yeah. Let's people. Let's take this for granted. And it's a good time to ask for and receive grace into also, you know, pass that around spread it like butter and also forgiveness..

"I'm doing great. So this is day two of the teachers strike here. Give us a census to how's it going so far? I mean, the number sound huge is it as a gripping to the city of Los Angeles as it feels from afar just looking at the numbers while it is to me because of course, I've been covering every waking hour, and it's actually three and the it's funny to people can't decide whether to cover this incredible Taylor of rain. We're having or the teachers strike, but the rain has not daunted the teachers it's just a sea of umbrellas these rallies. So if you're if your nearest school or you near a teachers rally, the impact is huge. And of course, if you're a family, you have to figure out what to do most families actually are not sending their kids to school so far which is which is an interesting situation in and of itself. So tell me more about that. Why why is it interesting? Well, first of all, you have to imagine schools without teachers, librarians, nurses and counselors is the union represents all those folks. So they are not at school. So and you have thirty one thousand folks in the union and replace them. The district is brought in the last estimate we had was four hundred substitute teachers and two thousand reassigned people from central and regional offices, many of them do not have teaching credentials. They're just warm bodies. And and so the kids are kind of being warehouse. Now, they do have software programs. So they have computers kids can do things on computers. There you could argue that at some moments. The nation's second largest school district has become the world's largest Cineplex is they're showing lots of films, and for many parents that it's just, you know, if if they don't need the childcare and actually a lot of people do they say, you know, we don't need that we're not sending our kids to school and the first day of the strike about a third probably less than. A third actually of the students came to school. And when that happens the school district is losing money. It's bad for the school district in a way. It's not great for the teachers either of his there's less money to go into a teacher settlement. But that's kind of the picture. So, you know, we're going to talk a little bit later with both members of a member of the United teachers for Los Angeles. And also, a member of the LA unified school district board of education. So we're gonna hear those races and a minute. But the Howard bloom told me, I mean, as you as you point out this day three I mean, a are we hearing what are we hearing from policymakers from lawmakers in Los Angeles. I mean in Sacramento about how long this could go on has a strike made any difference yet. Well, of course, as we talked about it's made a difference in the lives of a lot of folks. And the teachers would argue that they wanna make a long term difference in the lives of a lot of the families..

"Nine that's one eight one eight five six six four seven eight nine. We'll get into the yellow unified school district teachers strike after three o'clock will bring on a think tank guy, the talk about mainly school districts, debt, the mound. The wall of debt. I this leader. Now Austin Noor is trying to act like we've got to get a handle on this or we're going bankrupt. And nobody's getting anything. It's really entertaining. Channel seven did some stupid poll. Yeah, we have that too. And most of the parents are supporting the teachers I guarantee you not one of them has the slightest idea what the finances these were not LA unified school district. Parents do you see the numbers on that? Opponent taken of LA county people. And when they asked the question, do you have a student in the school district? The result is very low as you might have guessed. Yeah. No because the middle class and the upper classes have taken their kids out of the LA unified. If they live in the city of LA, they're not sending it is now overwhelmingly poor and immigrant and Hispanic like eighty six percent, Hispanic and much of that is poor and immigrant, that's. Emmigration which brings us back to the wall. And the fact we hit unchecked decades of illegal immigration, which is brought upon a situation. Now, where the schools are overwhelmed, and they have been for a long somebody posted today that they had a clip in Dianne Feinstein in nineteen Ninety-four this is twenty five years ago. And she was complaining that forty percent of the children. On medicaid. We're now the children of illegal aliens forty percent because it's the old anchor-baby thing you come to this country. And while the parents are not technically eligible for welfare, the children are and so the children. One thousand nine hundred four because the real rush happened in the nineties I saw a chart and the Clinton years, we're the worst even though he talked tough doors wide open. The Bush years were also really bad. And oddly it did drop off during the Obama years. Yeah. Well, Bill Clinton became president only five or six years after we gave out that one thousand nine hundred six was another big mistake during the Reagan years at that's right. But. The. Ninety four. The Feinstein was looking at the numbers and saying wait a second. Now, Medicaid is being is being overwhelmed by illegal immigrants. It's like, yeah. And then you go what happened with her is like what happens to a lot of politicians from the numbers grow there too overwhelming. And you believe there's a base there you no longer object. Right. You stop all the politicians. Have Trump is one that has not all those kids are not twenty five years old making vote. So there's a new migrant caravan left Honduras, but supposedly it's only a few hundred people Trump mentioned it the other day. Now, speaking of what you just said sort of dealing with Medicaid or Medicare. They'll LA county is gonna pay out the food stamp money early because of their fears that the government shutdown might interrupt with the food stamp money. A lot of it's it's it's administered by the county, but the federal government and the US department of agriculture is where the money comes from. So they're going to this month already handout, the February money to many of the households. So they ensure that they have their benefits, and they won't be blocked from. And again, it's known as Cal fresh lovely picture because as you know, now, it's like a debit card. It's not food stamps as they use. What happened? Can you use it? Yes now. Yeah. They'll use up all their how many in January how many how many people are going to blow all the money, and then they're going to get to the middle of February. And we're going to be here all the sob stories. It says you're starting tomorrow they're going to start giving out like how fresh benefits for February if you gave all food stamp people if you gave them. Going to load up the card if you gave them a years worth of money. Yeah. Right on a card on January first how long do you think it would last probably a month? Yeah. Maybe not even a month. Can they use it to casino? Can the debit card? Meanwhile, a federal judge today in federal judges, particularly those appointed by people like Obama loved to oppose Trump, which tells you everything you need to know, this judge blocked, the Trump administration from asking about citizenship on the twenty twenty cents and his name is Jesse m Furman is an Obama appointee to the bench. All well. I that's the end of the story right there. Let's go to the appeals court, although his reasoning rather long opinion, two hundred seventy seven pages. Okay. So wonder they took awhile he's a bag of mint and who has to take two hundred seventy seven pages to explain anything the origins of the universe were explained in less than two hundred seventy seven pages should be one paragraph. Get to the point I wanted to back it up with arguments in reference, so he's an ego bags what he is the one thing. He did was he rejected the immigrant activists. Claims that Trump's administration was doing this because they're racist. He said, no, however, there was no evidence. He did say that commerce secretary Wilbur Ross overseas. The census bureau ignored the advice of experts who said, well, if you add that question people will be frightened to they wouldn't take part. And then as you know, the government funding won't be allocated to the district's numbers are undercounted because always been the fear. But listen, this is why the decision went two hundred seventy seven pages because he said there's nothing inherently wrong with asking about citizenship. This is what makes me crazy agrees. There's and that was the question before him. Is it constitutional to ask people if they're a citizen on the census, and he said, no, it's not unconstitutional. There's nothing wrong with asking about citizenship. Indeed, it has been asked in the past. And it is still asked on the American community survey, which is the rolling census that takes place every year. But the judge said in this case Wilbur Ross, the secretary of commerce ignored checks built into the process to vet the questions such as extensive testing about the best way to ask them. What affects their appearance might have on public participation? So he's ruling on a procedural basis that Ross didn't follow all the proper bureaucratic rules, which tells me unless we get this completely wrong. And who knows these days the supreme court is getting this next, and they and they they should be ruling on constitutional grounds. And if they do they should uphold the Trump have been. Restrictions is the Justice department their right to ask the citizenship question that stupid, you're right again as always about feeling how could the government's going to impact people's feelings. How could the government not be allowed to ask about citizenship on a national census? On what planet I especially? When you're you're overrun with legal immigration. How else do you get this? It'd be a very rough estimate to begin with because a lot of people lie. A lot of people fill out the forum, blah, blah, blah, blah. But still not even be able to ask a question. Just to get a sense is the estimates have run from eleven to twenty two million two million upwards of twenty million diming eleven million number even here in for too long. I know would not hold. No, that's that's that's an official even hearing that for like fifteen twenty years, that's a government lie that they just repeat over and over again because the stupid asses in the media, they know will run with that number, but nobody nobody's ever proven. It's that low and Yale thinks it's twenty two million firm and believes that at least one in five households will refuse to answer the two thousand twenty cents is because of their citizenship question with a large share of those coming among Hispanic households presume. Because they are connected to illegal immigration that doesn't mean everybody in the household isn't illegal immigrant, but they have connections to people who are is such an important issue. You're hardly find anybody who doesn't have a strong opinion on it. It's the reason a quarter of the government is shut down the first piece of basic information. If you wanna address this intelligently is okay. How many are here? And what's the rate of them coming over? How can you not ask? How many of them are here and the best way to do that is to ask people individually, and the and the the instrument to do that is the sense there is no better way to get a handle on this. Then have the question on the census. The open borders crowd doesn't want that number out there because it's going to be a big number, and it's gonna further undercut their their arguments and America will wake up and go. Are you kidding me and the air and their whole their whole responses? Well, let's go to make them fearful well, so what? Comment you counting living in the country illegally. Fears part of the deal the way to eliminate the fear is not to come. It's not up to us to regulate your emotional climate after the law has been broken. Don't understand this world.

"la unified school district" Discussed on The Daily Zeitgeist
"Teachers of the LA USD are on strike. Yup. Thirty thousand thirty thousand teachers, and I don't know what can you give us the update on this miles? Look teachers across the country for the last forever like ever since. We've systematically just been defunding education, a country nationwide have been asking for the same thing. Basically, we need dignify -able wages. We can't be coming out of pocket for school supplies and shit like that. And it's just it's very simple. Right. So specifically in the case of the LA unified school district, which is the second largest in the nation. The teachers want a six and a half percent raise they want smaller classrooms. So they can teach better more effectively. It's hard to teach a clashing with over thirty students, and in some cases, forty to fifty students chooses to give them as sort of individual care nurturing to actually make sure they are learning. They're also asking for more support staff like in the form of nurses, librarians. They want to go. Yeah. I I know I know I know what's next champagne breakfasts, nurses, and for nurses and librarians, but supposedly, nurses, like some schools only have a nurse working there. One day a week. She's crew. And then the other Ford the kids they just have to put a band aid on their broken ankle, or whatever and keep it moving. And then there's like, you know, there's an issue of over testing the students there they want a like a five hundred dollars stipend for supplies. So we're no longer having like people overhearing a teacher struggling airplane. Be like, hey, we got everyone on the flight to pitch in twelve hundred dollars. So you can buy construction paper such a good feel good. I really love those capitalism hollow. And they also want to make sure that charter schools are being held accountable because you know, the proliferation of charter schools has just become a huge resource drain on the district like six hundred million dollars annually as being diverted to charter schools, which are basically private schools being run with public money. How does that happen? So it's like in the city's budget that six hundred million is diverted to charter school. Yes. Rather than to the public schools because there are some that, you know, there's the people always say like, oh, it's actually better or even to the quality of education that a regular public school gets most research says that it's at best. It's even or worse in terms of like, the actual education kids get there are charter schools that are that do work. But there's this also another dimension to this whole idea of charter schools too. Because the superintendent in LA is basically he's an investment banker with no background in administration of like education or anything and like. A lot of the people believe that the school board voted him to be superintendent because they want to privatize a lot of the school district here. And when you look at to sort of like, the relationship of investment banking to charter schools, it's wild, okay? Like investment bankers. They're slowly looking at a charter schools me. Like, yo that's a wave if someone to get your money into because it's money. Okay. And there was an interview years ago where this investment banker was on CNBC in the ass. Like, hey, look. So what's going on? Like, we see the a lot of people are introducing like charter schools into their portfolios, and the quote from this guy was well, I think it's a very stable business, very recession resistant, it's a very high demand product product. There's four hundred thousand kids on waiting lists for charter schools, and he's talking about Pennsylvania in this in this case the industry is growing about twelve to fourteen percent a year. So it's high growth, very stable recession resistant business, it's a public payer. The state is the pair if you do business with states with solid treasuries than it's very solid business. Right. So this. Emphasis isn't even on education anymore. And now like, you're we're starting to see this like portfolio model move into the school district, which is what a lot of the people in the teacher's union. Like, that's what this superintendent is trying to do with L at USD and at the detriment to the kids. So, you know, the I think the strike was a long time coming like talks have been breaking down since the summer and into December..
"la unified school district" Discussed on KGO 810
"Talking about today. What's up there? Dr drew I worked for a Long Beach unified school district in the elementary schools. Haven't had fulltime nurses in years. They only come for like a couple of days. I think the LA unified school district is kind of like, you know, the old saying don't bite the hand that feeds you. I mean, I think they're kind of overstepping. Meaning overstepping by going on strike. Yeah. You know, they make a pretty good salary for someone who works nine months of the year. Let's face. I thought I think they have a very salient point though, when it comes to having to deal with trauma issues with their students, and and not having enough resources to really help them. So they can help them and go ahead just do their teaching as opposed to be sort of. It's almost reminds me of our correction system. It's like the correction systems become a mental health service provider. Now, our teachers are mental health service providers is kind of goofy. Right. Well, I was a plant supervisor for many years, and I was at the school all day. I've never seen a teacher in the counselor's office. I've never seen the teacher in the nurse's office. It was the clerk or the secretary that took care of the kids a lot of classified employees. But if you have a minute, you mentioned, chronic fatigue syndrome. I always like to know what the latest medical information that you have on most of that sort of goes into the K. It's complicated issue there. There's various ways of thinking about it. It's thought of as a syndrome rather than a diagnosis made. It probably is caused by many different things usually includes fibromyalgia fibromyalgia with it too. Yeah. So you and in my humble opinion, the majority of those cases are sleep disturbances. Have you ever gone like three days without sleep, man? Your body aches, isn't that fibromyalgia constantly in Belgium, chronic fatigue are related they go together. And I'm of the opinion that if you can correct the sleep disturbance, you can go a long way to help him with the pain that's a doublet storage because the because you're paying you can't sleep. I was gonna say. If you can correct misleading get to sleep, hygiene, better usually the pain gets a lot better. So back to the school issue. Tony would you want to say there? Joe listen, you've been talking about people about costs and work. We put our resources and what? Ill-informed? I was listening to Austin Butte on two separate occasions. Austin beautiful superintendent LSU and the guy is talking like no other superintendent had ever talked before. Because he's basically saying things that knowing that it's ever revealed. Let me share with you what he said recently on a radio interview, you said that for every child in the Los Angeles unified school district. The state sends them sixteen thousand dollars per year, and he was being interviewed while he was in Sacramento trying to secure additional funding sixteen thousand dollars a year thirty four kids in the classroom. That's well over half a million dollars. I kids go to private school and their three hundred twenty five dollars per month. Your math on that at the end of the day when you get thirty four kids in the private school. It's a hundred thousand dollars a year for that classroom. Versus a half a million. Listen, I I support teachers getting paid more. But I think the real issue here is the piece of the pie that they're getting the overall pie. That the that the Elliott USD gets the of us the taxpayers. Other unions are benefiting greater than kietrice. It's really difficult to get sympathy for maintenance workers on a general level, right Geno scale it's easier to build up sympathy for teacher with the general public through. The teacher's union is to fight within itself against SEI, you the carpenters laborers and all the other unions at LSU has the answers to to get a bigger share the pie. Interesting interesting idea. How would they do that? Well, I think they need to negotiate amongst themselves because I have a friend who's on another school board. And basically he told me that's exactly what they do. Ruminate say look you guys decide which what portion of the pie. Gonna get what you something else. Austin buehner said while he was being interviewed on television on a local radio television program. He said that out of a hundred kids into the Los Angeles unified school district high school program and ninth grade out of a hundred less than eleven get a college degree that is pitiful. Now, that's the story. Dr drew not not these is about the president being processed through twelve years ago. This is the story who these kids are the ones that have to find a job. Immigrating people. What are they going to what they don't have the work ethic? People that come from other countries have. On the street you and I talked before. And I mentioned that to you. We're really let people down. No, I agree. I'm feeling like the teachers when I look at the data this teacher strike dovetails into the homeless thing the student situation that. Crisis of these students with these congressmen and homelessness and foster care if these kids even graduate high school, they haven't even read a book through their entire school career. Thank you. Tony. Thank you. We'll keep taking calls. Leeann tweeden. Dr drew midday live,.

LA teachers' strike all but certain as talks stall
"In February teachers in Los Angeles set to start a strike today negotiations between the teachers union and the LA unified school district stalled and teachers are scheduled to hit the picket line this morning United teachers of LA president Alex Caputo Pearl spoke at a press conference on Sunday. Let's be clear teachers do not want to strike teachers strike when they have no other recourse when there is no other alternative teachers are asking for a six and a half percent raising 'em reduce class sizes among other issues. Schools will still be open for the six hundred forty thousand students in America's second

"Without a contract for the last couple of years and the negotiations have been moving forward. But in very slow fashion the negotiations have not been successful. And so there's a strong possibility that. A teacher strike will unfold next week the presenting issues revolve around the teacher salary and the differences there are fairly small the larger differences turn on the extent to which the district is gonna commit to hiring more teachers to lower class sizes and even more significantly hiring other support staff librarians counselors psychologists, nurses, who will provide for the holistic needs of young people in the last year. You saw these mass mobilizations mostly in red states in West Virginia and Kentucky and Oklahoma. And then in Arizona of teachers coming together and declaring to the public. We don't have what we need in order to be able to educate your children. Well. Significantly those teachers received strong support from the general public, and I think that's bullied the hopes of teachers in Los Angeles. I think it's still an open question the extent to which the teacher's union will garner that support here in Los Angeles for that to happen. The need like the teachers and other states to be able to communicate clearly and forcefully that this action is taken on behalf of your children. There's no guarantee the strike will happen. In fact, the teacher's union and the LA unified school district with a six hundred forty thousand students said the strike delay actually provides an opportunity for the two sides to keep talking and to possibly avoid that strike.
"la unified school district" Discussed on KCRW
"Listening to KCRW. This is morning edition the LA unified school district and its teacher's union may be running out of time to avoid a teacher strike. The two sides are scheduled take part in yet another round of negotiations today, if they don't reach an agreement that teachers could walk off the job as early as tomorrow, it would be the first strike in the LA USD in thirty years if teachers do hit the picket lines, what would that mean for you and your family if you have children enrolled in LA unified schools KCRW saw Gonzalez has been looking into that and joins us now. Hey, saw good morning cherry. So let's start with the basics. How many teachers and students could be affected by a strike an enormous number. I mean, we're talking about a school district that has approximately five hundred thousand students enrolled in their campuses. We're talking over a thousand campuses, and we're talking about thirty thousand teachers who might walk out who might strike. So I think people have to understand kind of the. Enormity of the numbers. We're talking about here in America's second largest school system. They also have to understand when there's a school strike. It's not like any other strike with private company. XYZ right. I mean, schools public schools are part of kind of the the social infrastructure so fits a strike. It's gonna affect you. The Pacific Palisades can affect you in Boyle heights can affecting Sherman oaks and south LA and beyond. So a lot of people are going to be swept up in a strike. Whether they want to be or not what has the district done to try to prepare families. What are they telling families to do? Well, a few weeks ago they've they sent out some pamphlets to families basically telling people there might be a strike, and essentially those pamphlets warned about how to prepare for one. But like here are the arguments being made by the L A USD in negotiations with the UCLA the teacher's union. More tangibly the district says it's going to hire it's been planning for weeks or months to hire substitute teachers to bring in administrators into campuses and two. To really reach out to the community and ask people all in tier if campuses need some extra help. But if teachers walk off the job, you're talking thousands of educators, how will schools be staffed will there be any real learning going on the easy answer to that Sherry in the direct one is no, no. I mean, I think everybody will make a good a good attempt to continue on with education and keep the gears of education, turning, but these campuses are going to be staffed at a fraction of their usual. Number eight nine ten percent. You're gonna have people who aren't familiar with the lesson plans to artificial, but the curriculums, and we actually have an example, we can go back to earlier in the in the week. I did the story about the strike in one thousand nine thousand nine that was the last teacher strike nail unified school district, and when you read newspaper accounts and watch old news stories of what happened in eighty nine. There wasn't a heck of a lot of learning going on. I mean students were basically warehouse for the day in libraries and auditoriums. They watched cartoons. They watched old movies. But there wasn't. Lot of education happening. And what what you saw was also a great deal truancy. A lot of kids said I'm not really making good use of my time here, I'm out of here. And maybe they attended school the first or second day of the strike, but not after that. Now you've been talking to parents out there. Some of whom are rather worried about what could happen. What have they told you about what they'll be doing as far as their children's cares concern while this is going to dramatically change from one campus to the other. I'm sure I mean, you do have certain campuses where you do have kind of tight parent infrastructure. Right. I mean, parents know, each other they know their teachers very well. They're very engaged or various engage. There are other campuses were. That's just not the case not that those are bad parents, but they got other things in their life. They they got jobs to go to they may not know they're trying to keep food on the table other priorities food on the table a roof over their other over their families heads up, but I did talk to one parent yesterday. A Jennifer Schwartz who has started this. Elko started this Facebook page to engage parents in the strike. And this is what she told me that she's going to be doing with her own kids.
