"John Aaron. And I'm Michelle bash. Teddy gellman is our producer. The top story we're following tempers flared, and they were accusations of a cover up after the loudoun county school board voted against releasing to the public and independent report of how the school system handled two sexual assault assaults against students. A majority of the school board voted yesterday to keep the report under wraps, citing attorney client privilege and student privacy. Some parents have been calling on the board to release the report for months saying they want to details on what school leaders knew and when calls to release the findings came after a separate grand jury report found school leaders were generally incompetent in responding to the assaults, one student was accused of two sexual assaults at two different schools. The teenage boy was later convicted in juvenile court in order to stay in a treatment facility until he turns 18. Now, former Latin school superintendent Scott ziegler and school spokesman wade bayard were both indicted by that special grand jury. Now, one of the defendants is worried he won't get a fair trial. It's a story you're hearing first on WTO. Governor Glenn youngkin and attorney general Jason Millar's have tainted the entire jury pool, according to wade bayard's lawyer, attorney Jennifer loeffler writes that the governor and AG have often referred to loud and residents as being victims of a cover up and that their children were in danger. Since bayard is the school spokesman, that suggests he personally failed to inform parents of the alleged assaults. She says Virginia law insists that jurors not have a stake in the case they're hearing, she's filed a change of venue motion asking bayard's case be tried in fairfax county. And in an interview with WTO, attorney general Jason Millar's is defending the probe you can read more about it at WTO P dot com. At Michigan state university we're learning more about the three students who were killed in Monday's mass shooting. Police identified those killed as junior Ariel Anderson, an aspiring pediatrician. Sophomore, Brian Fraser, president of his fraternity, and junior Alexandria Werner, an athlete whose positivity changed lives. Campus police say the gunman had no affiliation with the university and they're still looking for a motive. Authorities say 43 year old Anthony McRae began his rampage at berkey hall, killing two and injuring several others. He then went to the student union, killing one more. McRae later died of a self inflicted gunshot wound during a confrontation with police. That is CBS News correspondent Erica moche in east Lansing in addition to those killed 5 others were critically wounded in the mass shooting. A 19 year old white supremacist is said to be sentenced to life in prison today for killing ten black people and a buffalo supermarket last year.

Rare and in some cases never before publicly seen video of a dive through the wreckage of the Titanic as being released today. You can see it on the Woods hole oceanographic institution YouTube channel. There's more than 80 minutes of footage of the dive in 1986, which marks marked the first time human eyes had seen the giant ocean liner since it sank in 1912.

And I will be looking up that footage when I get off the air, I definitely want to see that. Yeah, I want to see it too. And I saw the movie again over the weekend.

And he declares that the United States is out of the pandemic phase. And then he changed his mind, but here's what he had to say at first. Audio clip number four, popov Shawn. We are certainly right now in this country out of the pandemic phase. Namely, we don't have 900,000 new infections a day and tens and tens and tens of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths. We are at a low level right now. So if you're seeing, are we out of the pandemic phase in this country? We are. Yeah, so we're out of the pandemic phase. He admits that we're out of the pandemic phase until he changes his mind. I mean, these people, they're thirst for power. I heard someone say they could be a legal issue. I don't know. It could be a legal issue where he had to backtrack. I don't know. But the guys flip flopped so much. I don't believe that's the case. I believe this guy goes in, he gets beat up by Psaki. Hey, don't say that. Don't screw up the messaging.

This from the post millennial. The parents of a teen who committed suicide say that relentless bullying at school over false allegations about his vaccination status led him to kill himself. And January 15 year old Nate Ron Stein, I hope I'm pronouncing pronouncing his name correctly family. I don't mean any disrespect. Took his own life after months of bullying both online and at their prestigious Chicago private school that he attended. His parents have since filed a lawsuit against the school alleging that administrators could have done more to prevent the tragedy. In the lawsuit filed on Monday, the Brian steins, the bronstein's alleged that upon transferring to Latin school of Chicago in 2021, Nate was quote subjected to persistent and increasingly cruel forms of bullying, cyber bullying hate speech and other harassment. They cost him severe anxiety and depression. They alleged that Nate suicide quote followed the willful failure by teachers and officials at Latin to take any action to remedy the horrific treatment that Nate had endured prior to his death, despite being aware and or having every reason to be aware of what he was enduring. Much of the bullying was spurred on by rumors that Nate was unvaccinated when he had in fact gotten the shot. We're gonna talk about more of this after the break more headlines.

You've worked very hard. No position acting there want to make that very clear. Uh, I know some people have used the phrase acting Mayor. I think that you're the mayor of Boston. Uh And I suspect you would agree with me on that so we will. We will assume that, um Uh, I also want to mention we have something in common. Your father and I went to Boston Latin school at around the same time. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Wonderful. He graduated in 1964. When? When did you go? I was a couple of years later, so I knew of him as an older classmate. Um, uh, And obviously, he went on to have a great career in education. Uh, I might answer did Yes, he did. He did indeed, and he was the great scholar at Boston Latin School and went on to Northeastern University in Boston University. And then went into education. Yes, as a schoolteacher here in our public schools, he started his career as a reading teacher at the Bancroft School in the South end. And then went on to be, uh, you know, within the Boston public school district principal and a headmaster, he was an area superintendent. And before he left BPS. He was the chief academic officer, and he left to become superintendent of Rochester, followed by Washington, D. C and then Newark, New Jersey. Yeah, quite a career in education. Uh, I'm sure that you are, you know very proud of him, And I know that you have a great deal of interest in education. Uh, you You yourself grew up. Uh, as your biography mentions, Um, at a tough time in Boston that second wave of Busing back back in the day in the in the in the late seventies. You of course, grew up in Roxbury, but you lived. Um you went to school. You grew up and lived in Roxbury. But you ended up spending a lot of time. In another part of the city in Charlestown, So you really began to get to know the city at a fairly young age, correct. Yes, Yes, And I also spent a lot of times in the south end. In fact, when I was being bussed to Charles Town, it was from the South End. My great grandparents had a brownstone. In the South end. And so I spent a lot of my childhood there as well. And as you mentioned yes, was bust during the battle to desegregate Boston Public school. Was a very difficult time in our city. Uh, you know, a lot of Children were not getting a good quality education. There was a lot of racial strikes in our city. There were often police escorts for our buses. Of rocks and racial slurs being thrown at us. As we were just trying to go to school. Um and we've come along way in our city. But our schools still need a lot of work. Obviously, they're much better than they were back in the 19 seventies. There's been a lot of improvement, but in many ways At the quality that parents seeking, uh, you know, it still feels like a lottery for for many parents when they are applying for Boston, public schools and our schools, unfortunately, are still largely segregated by race. Yeah, that's that's that's work to do. Yes, that's one of the statistics that strike me. Um maybe it's a different type of segregation. But What percentage they're about. 50,000. The number I hear is 50,000 students in Boston. What percentage of those students in the Boston public schools on minority these days? I've heard figures as high as 89%. Yeah. The vast majority of students are students of color in BPS. That is true. And, you know, I think the segregation may be a little different As you mentioned. I think there's some social economic Segregation that happened, uh, as well and again. There's a correlation there and terms of, uh, race. There's you know, often, uh, you know certain neighborhoods of certain community. And not only our school, largely Children of color. Um they are largely Children who live and poor communities. Um, we have Uh, a number of our students as well, who are students with disabilities about offense? We've got a number of our students who are English language learners. Um, we have, uh, very diverse population of students in terms of language and culture and not just raised And so more than half of the kids Who attend VPs living home. We're English is the second language where there's a primary language other than English. How How are we doing as a city and again? I realized that you know you have served as mayor. Only for you know, six or so months. You probably know that months and you believe it number of days, whatever. But how are we doing in terms of the percentage of students in the Boston public schools? Not that this is the only Um, really, the only way by which we should judge we should judge success. But what percentage of the students who are in the public school system graduating? And what percentage are going on either to a two year or four year college and I know the reason I asked that question is, I know that you are very concerned about perhaps expanding trade, schools and technical schools and vocational training. Even though you went to a great college Smith College, and a lot of our listeners went to college College isn't for everyone necessarily. But what if the numbers in terms of kids in the Boston public schools are actually going on to either two or four year college and graduating on time? Well, you know, not enough of them. If that is the path that they want their there so that the graduation rate has increased, Um over time, which is great. So students are graduating. More and more students are graduating from high school. But those who go on to college um you know it is taking longer. To graduate with cost more money, and then not enough to so many might go on, but not finish, and it costs money. And when we think about other opportunities, we want to think about those opportunities as great opportunities, not In the context that not everyone is meant for college like college is a great choice. If that is what you desire, but it is. It is now becoming more and more difficult, uh, for our students to go to college, and it's not so much Whether or not uh they are able to compete academically as it is. Um, you know, the cost of college and so on the one hand, we've got to do more to make sure that our students are prepared for college that they're able to go on to school without having to take a bunch of remedial. Of course, is But we also need to make sure that college is affordable and we've got A number of students who go on to college, maybe graduate with tens of thousands or.

Who is not without controversy here with the latest u. our education reporter. Max larkin max. Welcome back okay max. Let's start with the basics. Did the committee approve. Yeah so as you mentioned this. Yana for the first time in almost twenty five years applicants backgrounds. Who they are where they come from is going to count again in admissions to these schools. I it's a really big deal. It's going to play out kind of onto different levels if your parent or a student not that much will change. Maybe about the experience of applying will try to get good grades. You'll eventually take an entrance exam. Starting not this fall but the next and then. If you're at a qualifying average you'll be eligible to apply and think the real changes on the district side. And i'm kind of oversimplifying here. The district will start to compare applicants from similar backgrounds. Similar neighborhoods Census tracts to be specific. So they're creating these eight tiers. Based on the tracks rate of poverty reeb english speaking households single parent households et cetera. And then a top students from the most underserved neighborhoods will get first pick. Okay and it's the census tracts and sort of the mix of what they consider that are. what's different. is that right. Yeah so since you. The judge throughout the prior system of racial quotas back in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven that competition to get into these schools. Pared-down or streamlined. We've just fifty percent grades fifty percent test. You go live to the top scorers citywide and they can pick a seat and then once. Those seats are filled. Everyone else is kind of out of luck. Now this has a bit more nuance or subtlety grades. Accounting for seventy percent test thirty percent you can take the test twice a homeless students or those a high poverty schools. Get a little point increment and then you have that system of tears that i described okay. So what's the case for change and why are some upset about the change. Well you know. These fools always said a little uneasily and the big urban school district. they're public but they're also exclusive rate and like boston. Latin school in particular thought of as the springboard to harvard or another prestigious university and then a career in politics or medicine or law. But it's just not for everyone At this point in time you know. For instance. Latino students make up forty percent of the district overall but just around thirteen percent at the low income students even starker. They're like two thirds of the district overall but less than twenty percent at be l. s. It doesn't mean that everyone is white or wealthy. He goes to these fools especially to boston. Latin but we heard from resident judas knee last night. Who said she's in favor of doing some leveling here but she'd made this middle-class defense of the status quo before the vote last night. Let's let's hear that. Do you really think depriving firefighters and civil servants. Kids is the way to do this. What does it get you other than deprive. Everyone of perhaps the one real advantage step up in world by weakening the rigor of latte. So you you hear to interesting things there dc on. I the idea that there's only one real step up in the world on offer of students in the boston public schools and then use the word. latin meaning. boston latin school. I think so much of this. Debate is confused by the fact that while this policy would affect three schools. It does seem to be the boston latin school. That's the third rail here okay. Maximum minute we're going to add another voice but before we do that. There was a last minute surprise from superintendent. Brenda casella last night. Tell us about that was fascinating to watch So just to go back a bit. This policy was crafted by a pretty heavy duty task force. I we're gonna hear from the co chair in a moment that worked for like six months on the policy and so at their last meeting. They agreed on the plan that passed last night. Then they meet again the next day and say never mind their forces in the city political kind of influence that wants there to be twenty percent to work under the status quo. Straight academic ranks citywide members. As you might imagine. Were quite upset about this. Here's attorney matt. Krieger shortly after the change was added in the city asked a heck of a lot to do all of this in full compliance with the open meeting laws and to the extent that there are local elected officials who are weighing in here by doing it in quiet. Shame on them. That disgusts me. In some ways yeah noko had in some ways. These young i just wanted to say may seem like a moot point Since we went back to the original policy before the vote. But i think many in the city are wondering you know are there forces that are still working to kind of block change i. I asked Acting mayor ken genie's office whether she called to request a change and why she didn't deny it but she didn't explain and at the same time she seemed to be in favor of reform here so it suggests that other players might affords her hand all right and last piece of context here. When does the change actually happen now. That the votes done pretty much away. So an outreach campaign begins as the district says immediately after the vote you know. Parents being told the ins and outs of the new system. So those socioeconomic tears are set to be published and kind of explained in the fall and then in the winter that next application cycle begins. All right max larkin. Wb u. our education reporter. Thanks stay with us. I'll come back to you in a minute but right now i'm going to bring in another voice returning to nisha sullivan. She is the president of the boston branch of the endless ep. She also served as the co chair of the exam. School working group tunisia. Welcome back to radio boston. Thank you too.

Hillary Krieger. Hi, Hilary. How are you tonight? I'm great. How are you? Good. Hillary is a journalist. And Carly is an opinion editor at NBC. Correct? Mm, and has worked. In journalism in different spots around the world and But calls Boston home and Little more that little less than a year ago. Her dad, Neil, um, was lost to a covert 19 and Hillary has written very emotionally about the loss. I mean, its losses is never never easy. And you you have tried to do something. In memory of your dad. You and your brother Jonathan, and tried to do something in memory of your dad, which is Very interesting on unique. Tell it. Tell us about it, Hilary. Well, um, after our father passed away, Um and we weren't able to have the traditional funeral and things you do to commemorate a person. We were spending a lot of time talking to people about him and trying to capture who he was and communicated quickly, And one thing we kept on coming back to was a word that he had. Invented on did use around the house growing up. So we actually thought it was a real word until we were shocked to find out. It wasn't on the word is Orbis Kelly. And it means when you're cutting into Citrus fruit, and it squirts you in the eye. And it's a really fun, funny and colorful word, and we would tell people about it because we thought it captured so much about his personality in such a Short on gun accessible way. And since it turned out that the word wasn't a real word. Until now, we thought a really fun way to honor his memory and include people in our story of who he Woz on How he touched the people around him would be to try and get this word or bestial eight. Added to the dictionary. All right now it sounds like a real word O r B I s C u l A t Now your dad passed away. In late April on you and your brother Jonathan have been working on this project Now for a few months. I guess you've had some news articles, the in which this Mr Boston Globe did a story on it. I mean, it sounds like a real word. Orbis kill eight. I mean, it's it has Did you? Did you do a little deep dive into what? The depth. I mean, there's always going to be a Derek derivation. Your dad was a graduate of Cornell and And was a man of letters himself. He came up with the word. What do we have in terms of orbits, I assume is from the Latin of some sort. That's our guests. Unfortunately, it wasn't something that we asked him before He passed away, but we actually talked to a language expert who lives in Somerville. And tried to figure out with her what the word would have been sort of Adama logically on. And then they're two different words in Latin that you could combine to get the U late ending and one means thrust and one means throw. So we think it's a combination of those those two root words. Um, though our dad was very creative. He did not feel very bound by the rules of language or convention or anything else, which is why he would make up his own vocabulary. S so it's sort of our best guess work at how at how he worked it out..
