And we're working on the other forty to make sure that the social and emotional support soon as need looks different. I don't mean another five minutes with the school counselor once a week. I'm making sure we have enough staff that we have wraparound services programming after school. It really needs to be baked into the dna of our schools. A lot more than it is now but i think what i don't miss here is that the president has put out a transformational agenda ron education so we have a moment here as educators to really lift the bar. Raise the bar and lift expectations for everyone so we have the ability. Make sure that we don't become complacent and go back to what it was. March twenty twenty. I'm excited about the opportunity. I am excited when i talk to educators across the country and when i talked to students this is the beginning of a new new erin education. I'm excited to be a part of it right right. I wanna shift gears for a second to another Set of questions. That i was getting quite a lot of last month. You mentioned that it's possible. There could be further deferments in student loan payments. Where does that stand now. And where things at the moment in terms of full on cancelation minor standing was there was a conversation with the president. About what legal authority could exist on that. Yeah that's that is. Our our attorneys are working with doj attorneys and white house to kind answer that and there hasn't been a resolution that yet but what i will say is that this is not just an event we have to do better at the department of education to support our borrowers to make sure that the decisions that we can control. We're doing better. We've provided over three billion dollars in relief for students who are in law who had loans we we really those debts already. And we're looking for opportunities where we feel either institutions have taken advantage of students Or not kept up there under the bargain.

I yeah i understand this question about curricula that is seemingly everywhere right now so many states have either banned or they're working to ban what they're referring to as teaching critical race theory depending on where you are tomorrow actually on our show. We're going to hear from two educators about what they think of this issue and the federal government obviously does not control what states in districts are going to be teaching but on a base level. What is your reaction to some lawmakers trying to control and effectively police in some ways what teachers can include in the lesson plans. They perform we got to let educators. Educate i trust my educated. I trust my leaders to understand how to make sure that the curriculum that has been front of students is engaging to all students that it shows. As a doctor robinson's bishops said windows and mirrors into other cultures. Right where you could see yourself and then Windows into other cultures. What i've seen happen is politicizing of it.

Don't work in education. We need to really make sure that as we Build back better. We put in those things that we know. Our students need to address disparities. To make sure students have access to to learning in ways that are creative and fun So i'm excited about that opportunity. But i recognize that. It's going to be a challenge. It's going to be something that's long-term secretary. The emotional toll. This pandemic has had on. Our children is immeasurable. I'm sure you've seen it. I've seen it. We are hearing hugely higher. Rates of depression and suicide. Kids are feeling lonely and socially isolated. I think there's a lot of work cut out for all of us. How are you and the biden administration. Making sure that they are going to be able to get the help they need going forward. The that's critically important. you know. i'm a father. I told you and i talked to my children and i talked to students across the different schools that i visit. They just wanna be back with their friends. They want to be back into sense of normal but they've also had a lot of poor experiences a lot of bad experiences over this last year dealing with loss of life in their family or friends or or experiencing job for people that they love so as i said earlier making sure that when we return that we have schools that have better social emotional supports imbedded intentionally it shouldn't be an afterthought we need to think about how we're going to meet the needs of the children holistically Including those emotional needs that they're going to have after having lived through a pandemic so so when you say we're going to be back to normal pretty much. What do you mean by that. I'm gonna masks socially distanced vaccinations required. What so you know the new normal right. That's gonna change over time. And i don't think you know the bar should never be. Let's go back to what it was. In march of two thousand twenty. We need to aim higher. Kids deserve better. So i think you know the the transmission rates will determine that joy. I i really feel like you know working in partnership with Cdc in making sure that we're treating this as a health pandemic. i will determine whether or not we have masks the distancing. But i want us to really reimagine the role of our schools and how we're meeting the needs of our learners So i think it will evolve over time. It's not gonna happen from one day to the next you know. It's easier to close schools than it is to reopen them so we just have to make sure we're a tuned to what the educators are telling us that they're seeing from their kids and make sure that we're adapting to what the needs of our students are whether that's masks distancing but also that social emotional content that they need to to be successful in all aspects of schooling secretary. You were most recently the commissioner of education in connecticut this last week we saw to mass shootings brought back of columbine brought back memories of parkland and of course of sandy hook in your own state of connecticut shamefully. Nothing has been done even though it's been almost ten years. We are so focused on keeping kids safe from covert but as kids go back to school. How do we keep them safe from gun. Violence what can we do as members of the community as teachers as parents. And what can you do. I was a principal on that day. And i remember have having it unfold live. I also remember you know as commissioner of education meeting some of the parents who have taken tragedy and turned it into an opportunity to build culture and climate in schools throughout our state and throughout our country we as educators have always put our children first. And what. I saw happen in our schools after that in terms of security making sure that there are safeguards making sure that sign and procedures. That doors are locked is critical. But it's really about making sure that we're open about what the what the threats are were communicating. We have clear protocols but also advocating for the rights social emotional and mental health supports that are needed in our communities to prevent these these tragedies so you know i having experienced that as an educator in the building and seeing what effects that has it has to be our priority to make sure our students are safe.

"We are back and we're talking about the first press conference of joe biden's presidency so everyone has waited except you make and how do you think he did. Have you think he did. Yeah i just want to start this out by saying i love president biden as a person i think he's a truly decent human being and a wonderful family man and i have great love and admiration for him on a personal level but i believe our role in the fourth estate as Journalists and commentators is to hold the president and the press feet to the fire. And i have to separate my emotions from calling balls and strikes on this now i just wanna present a scenario where somehow magically president trump got reelected and i sixty days of him being reelected. He didn't do a press conference when he finally did a press conference. He didn't talk or answer one question about the pandemic and he didn't answer any questions from any media. That didn't agree with him. Peter doocy was not called on fox. News wasn't called on. Which i think is a huge miss for president biden yesterday and then on top of that in the news cycle if president trump had fallen down air force one or his son was involved in some very serious reports involving the secret service and a handgun which just came out on politico. Yesterday i believe we would be having a very different hot topic today. And i think it is incumbent on us and the pressed not to be deleterious in the way that we cover president biden. Did he have a decent press conference yesterday in the sense that he answered what he could. Yes did he not answer all the questions that i would like to know. Was he not being held in the same standard that i wish just because president trump was so awful and so disrespectful to the press which i think we're all in agreement in doesn't mean we should be giving president biden passes. I think he did a fine job. I think is the president. The united states of america were still in a pandemic a bunch of crisis and. I don't think he nearly enough questions that i for one would have liked to have seen him answer. And i think the coverage of it has been really disconcerting. I was watching some shows this morning. There is no need to slobber all over. Joe biden right. Now he's still the president. The united states and i think our role in the fourth estate is to hold his feet to the fire and to ask serious questions and giving him time. Let him be president. Yes but we did not give this levity to president obama war to president trump. So i don't know why we're giving him so many so much of it right now. Given that he's been in office. Sorry serving in office for over fifty years. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that he wasn't lying he didn't tell reporters to shut up. He didn't come up with some nasty word name for somebody so we'll have to give him time. Give him a break. I think that if he goes forward They'll be asking tougher. Questions are around a long time. I've been to many presidents including george washington and believe me. The press is not con to any of them so that i think that that's really the situation. Sarah you have anything to say this. I know why was just mainly curious. Like because i know he started the press conference about The virus and. I didn't know i felt like people. Were trying to hold his feet to the fire about the border. Because that's a more tense topic. That's he doesn't have a handle on whereas with the virus he's kind of out we're out doing the goals said originally so. I thought i saw it a little differently. I thought they were pushing back a bit because he kept saying. I'm gonna give you access win. We have this figured out and people kept grilling him. So i thought more as the reporters but before we go today. We are celebrating women's history by cheering on some game. Changers in the world of sports take look groundbreaking day today in the nfl.

President Biden's nominee to be secretary of education, took questions from lawmakers today. Miguel Cardona told the Senate Education Committee that he knows the stakes could not be higher for the next secretary. We're here today in the midst of one of the most challenging school years in American history. For far too many of our students this year has piled on crisis after crisis. This was Cardona's first big moment in the national spotlight. NPR's Cory Turner was watching and joins us Now. He, Corey. Ailsa. Hey, So remind us real quick. How Miguel Cardona got to this moment. Yes. So most recently, he was Connecticut State education commissioner. It's the past year and a half. Before that. He lived and worked as a public school educator in the town where he grew up. His parents moved from Puerto Rico to married in Connecticut. It's an old factory town since starting there as 1/4 grade teacher, he has worked really at every level of education. As a teacher of principle and assistant superintendent and finally as a state education leader. Wow well with such a closely divided Senate. I'm curious. What was the reception like for Cardona? Well, first off, Cardona himself came in really pleading for unity. Here's what he told lawmakers in his opening remarks as a sane and Spanish goes along young Estella Forsa in unity, There is strength. And that set the tone for what was generally a pretty friendly and at times admiring hearing the ranking Republican Richard Burr called Cardona eminently qualified. He encouraged his colleagues to support him. It was really only one tense moment. Also when Kentucky Republican Rand Paul asked Cardona if he supported this Connecticut policy that allows transgender students to participate in sports based on their gender identity. Cardona said repeatedly that it would be his job to protect the rights of all students. Here's Senator Paul So you don't have a problem that was boys running in the girl's track made to meet name it. You're okay then, with boys competing with girls. Respectfully, Senator, I think I answered the question. I believe schools should offer the opportunity for students to engage in extracurricular activities. Even if they're transgender, I think that's their right. It's also worth noting else that two other Republican senators, including Mitt Romney, also voiced frustration with Cardona's position on this issue. Well, President Biden has promised to get schools reopened in his 1st 100 days in office. What did card don't know, have to say about that promise his ability to ensure that promise. Yeah, well, he started by pledging to work with the CDC to give school leaders really concrete, science driven guidance on how to reopen safely. He also said he would help schools build capacity to do surveillance testing lots of places. They're not doing much any of that. He said all teachers should be prioritized for vaccination. He's also said you know, long before today that he believes close schools are further widening longstanding educational equity gaps, which is one reason why he pushed hard in Connecticut for schools to reopen. In fact, if you Look at that state. Roughly half of the district's there were offering largely fully in person school as of the third week of January. What about student loan debt? Biden has also signaled possible action on student loan debt. Did anything come up about Forgiveness a federal student loans Yeah, it did on. It all revolved really around how it could be done because there's debate whether the head secretary has the authority to just forgive that unilaterally or if it has to go through Congress, so Republicans made clear today. This is not something they want to see done unilaterally. While Democrats led by Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts, they pushed the other way, saying, You know, he has an obligation to do this. Cardona, for his part, said forgiveness is a priority, but that he'd like to work with Congress. That's NPR's Cory Turner. Thank you, Corey. You're welcome Outside.

That's of great concern to when we're not gonna let that go. Certainly. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky. I was in a Senate committee confirmation hearing today for the nominee for President Biden's education secretary. And one important exchange occurred here that I need you to hear. Listen in general about boys running in girls track meets like they've been doing in Connecticut. I think that it's critically important. Oh educated education systems and educators respect the rights of all students, including students who are transgender. And that they're afforded the opportunity that every other student has to participate in extracurricular activity. Visit Bob So let me just pause there for a moment to the question, Woz. Um You know what your feelings about boys competing and track meets against girls, and the response was, I think it's important that Every child has the same rights and opportunities. To compete in athletics now what's missing from that equation? What's missing from that equation? All students. Have the right and deserve the right to compete. In Scholastic athletics, including transgender students. Don't biological girls have the right to compete in athletics against Exclusively biological girls. I mean, I've got to think and I maybe Rand Paul. Maybe Senator Paul should have asked this question. But I would. I've got to think. That the nominee for education secretary Miguel Cardona. If I had said, Hey, Does the boy have the right? Not it, not a transgender girl, but a biological boy who identifies as a boy. If they want to play on the girl's softball team or run girls track. Do they have a right to do that? And I'm pretty sure Mid Mago Cardona would say, Well, no They don't have a right to do that. They have a right to plan the boys team. If that boy wanted to wrestle against girls, do they have the right to do that again? Not somebody with gender dysphoria, not somebody going through a transition, not somebody who's gone through a year of testosterone. Uh, blockers? No, just a boy. Just any boy. The number one boy on the boys track team. Does he have a right to go and compete against all of the girls on the girls track team? And of course, the answer is no. They don't have that right because the girls would be harmed by that. Right, that would actually disrupt the girls legitimate opportunity. To compete in a fair manner against Biological girls.

The Austin City Council didn't have a single conservative member representing the city. But that changed last week when Jimmy Flanagan was defeated and the District six runoff election. Now another local governing body, is losing its lone conservative. Travis County Commissioner Gerald Artie's final meeting of the commissioner's court is today and Governor Abbott Mayor Steve Anders, he Austin's rising primary.

"Shoulder Amanda Factor here on this Tuesday morning, the 22nd day of December and frank lenses at the editor's desk just getting where the president elect Joe Biden is expected to tap. Connecticut Education Commissioner Miguel Cardona as secretary of education selection of the Puerto Rican native would fulfill buttons pledged to appoint an education chief with public school experience. Cardona has come up through the ranks is a teacher and administrator, Surgeon general Dr Jerome Adams says the emergence of a new Corona virus strain found in the UK does not mean the virus is more dangerous or even more contagious. He also says the director of the National Institutes of Health says that there's no indication that Corona vaccines won't fight it while President Trump appears to be spending his last days in office, trying to overturn the results of the election. His personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani's seeks to distance both himself and Trump from lawyer Sidney Powell. This is what Giuliani told Newsmax. They say definitively. Sidney Powell was not part of our legal team. She hasn't been for five weeks. She is not a special counsel for the president. She does not speak for the president. Norther. She speak for the administration. She speaks for herself, and she's a fine woman of fine lawyer. Whatever she is talking about. It's their own opinions. ABC News correspondent Karen Travers is with US from Washington D C but wasn't Sidney Powell meeting at the White House a couple of times over the past few days. Yeah, that little times in the last few days, which is really striking, given that Giuliani distancing himself in the legal team from Powell's really the second time they did this weeks ago. After Powell started talking some very extreme conspiracy theories about Venezuela and rigged voting machines. At the time, the Trump campaign put out a statement saying she's not part of the team is not part of the effort. She's just doing this on her own. Yet she's now very close to the president, and she's really in his ear and top allies and advisers to the president are growing increasingly alarmed that he's welcomed her in and she's pushing these extreme theories. We're told that she is urging the president to use the full power of his office to investigate. But she says a rigged voting machines urging him to appoint her. A special counsel can answering the idea of a new executive order to seize voting machines to investigate for potential fraud and also the idea was raised by Michael Flynn about declaring martial law in ordering the military to rerun the election in states that he lost his critical battleground states. Interestingly, we're told a meeting at the White House. Friday Group very heated, turning into a screaming match the top White House officials, including the chief of staff in the White House counsel, and Rudy Giuliani, trying to convince the president against all of these ideas. Something. Powell, we're told, called them off quitters. There are rumblings that some Republicans will try to challenge the electoral college. What do we know? Yeah, they've made that very clear. Mo Brooks, The congressman from Alabama, said this on the floor the house a couple weeks ago that when the Congress meets on January, 6 to certify the electoral college results that he will raise a challenge, saying they want to have a vote on the results. This is a feudal challenge. This could just delay the roof, the eventual inevitable by a couple of hours. He will need a senator to join him in this challenge, and there's talk about who would do that. Interestingly, Mitch McConnell and other top Republican behind the scenes have been telling Republicans do not do this, that this is not going to be a good vote for the Republican Party. Then we'll look like a loyalty test for the president, and it's not going anywhere. So don't force this It does sound like everybody is listening to them on this, that they are going to consider pushing this forward, and it could end up looking very messy. But even Republicans or publicly saying not going anywhere, but it's just gonna make the party but not great, Karen. Is there a sense that the White House that the president is growing more and more isolated as the circle of advisors around him gets smaller and smaller. Yeah, I think that's definitely something that we're seeing. You know, this is normal in administration where you're in these final days, Final weeks and people start packing up their offices. People are starting to look for jobs. You saw the communications director a couple weeks ago leaves another top top officials in the West Wing, so it's pretty empty over there. People are also just not coming in, of course, because of Corbett, and it's the holidays. But there's another element that we're told that people just don't want to be around the president right now, because if you are not agree With him on these election conspiracy theories. If you're not agreeing to push what he wants pushed, then you're a target, So it's not a great environment right now. So several weeks to go, But we're certainly seeing that the president is choosing to put people around him that are telling him what he wants to hear. Thanks for the update, Say veces Karen Travers with US from Washington, D C. Coma news time, 7 20. Good.
