"Needed slowly on 700 wlw. Well, the big story today, I think, In addition to what's happening, City Council plowed the great plow debate when when I plow drivers is that Yesterday, Judge Lisa Allan ruled against the Cincinnati Federation of Teachers. CFT did not want their Body is a whole and that would be teachers, obviously to be back in person in Cincinnati public schools with students as you know that the school board voted, I wouldn't say Well, it was a majority. It wasn't unanimous. I think there was one. I think Mike Marassi. He's only got voted against it. But the point is this. Um This school. Cincinnati Public School said. Look, we got to get teachers back in. It's better for the students. It's better for the teachers is better for the process, according to CDC. If we follow the guidelines, you'll be fine, and that is Where mask wash your hands socially distance. We do the social distancing by Having a blended learning model, meaning a couple days a week your home on a laptop. And a couple other days, you're actually in person in school, and we rotate kids through and that way we can have a smaller classrooms again if your kids in schools and still get teaching in and be able to teach face to face for a change, which is warranted, which is welcome, which many, many district's across the Buckeye State are doing. Except since in a federation of teachers said. We don't want to do this. They asked their members and they found out that nearly eight in 10 voted against coming back into schools. What is different about CPS than any other district? Almost any other district in the state of Ohio? That's the question of 513749 7800 big £1.17 18 3. What's the issue? Leanne? You're in the Scotts Lawn show. Good morning, like Want to play Devil's Advocate. I'm all for kids being in school. But my thought is maybe thinking about socioeconomic status of those that comprises many public schools. A lot of them live. And multi generational home spread and spread of a lot more people a lot more quickly, and I think a lot of people don't access health care as much So if they're sick, they're more likely to be like it's just a cold or flu or whatever. I'm still going to go to work. They have to up their bill get, you know. Yeah. Okay, I get you're saying it's not like you know, 10 Tenley access to health care is a huge issue minority communities, especially and they're afraid. But here's the thing, though I'm looking at the statement that the union sent out and said We're gonna look at more real legal remedies. Let me just read it. DeLeon. It says this teachers must make their own personal decision a decision on whether they should risk covert infection by ignoring state health guidelines to minimize contact with others. While our county remains in the red, they in the parents of our students must consider their own health conditions and the conditions of their family members and making the decision on whether to report to school. So in this statement, it doesn't say anything about Hey, listen, we don't want to get the family members of our kids of our students sick. It only talks about them not getting sick or bringing the bringing club it home to their families. So I think you made a valid argument. But the teachers who didn't even see it that way on, say, I think maybe you had to be right. These pressure releases Leanne Thank you. Thank you Wanted. Yeah, that's over, although outside that, What's your opinion? I mean, okay, if other school districts everywhere doing this, and and we're not seeing any increase in number of people getting sick because they're its goal. That's a good good example. You gave of protecting the most vulnerable But clearly there's areas and pockets of this state in rural areas that are pretty poor, too, and they don't seem to have a problem with it. True. I just I think that you like do that. A lot of people in rural areas living like multigenerational home that I don't know. You know, when you think about absolutely they do. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, there's a lot of parallels between the urban areas and the I'm talking about extreme rulers of Ohio to when it talked about multi generational Grandma Grandpa live in the house. Um, there's there's people on social assistance, right? Like you might have 100 kids in the entire school. You know it works. Is that the public? There's way more kids in the school as well, Right? But I guess you know you're isolated in classrooms. I guess. One thing you know you're donated ships to you. It's not everyone's not coming school same day. That's whether the blended learning is that they can socially distance better when a few go a day, as opposed to the whole school, so they let you go. Thanks for checking in place. Now I love the devil's advocate. Could be the name of massive, but I've changed my name of Devil's advocate. 513749 7800 Big one. It's pound 7 18 T to Amy and Ripley, Ohio on 700 wlw. Amy, You're a teacher. Yes, I am. All right. Give me your take. It might be a may be unfair towards your profession. Yeah. No, I'm not necessary. I just believe that we've been back in school since August. And we have done very well with in person. And I just believe that for the students education That in person is the best way for us to go for the students. Welfare What are you seeing relative to your students cause I hear a lot of horror stories. I know the suicide rate on not just teens, but now younger people is up. As a matter of fact, they know someone whose family was touched by this recently, and it's a horrible thing that it's the young person took their own life. And I won't say who it is obvious for obvious reasons. But you know you generally, don't we don't report news doesn't report on suicides, but I know for a fact that the suicide rate is up among all kids. Because of social isolation. And maybe there's a bowling element there, too. I don't know. But, um it's really sad in the way to do it is to get back in person. And we've been doing that a lot areas but since in a public doesn't want to is that true? Do you see that your school when when it comes to dealing with your students? Well, I think first grade so you know, I think a little different with first graders. Um, but I just think that the The one on you know the the in space, you know, person teaching that you get, you know, being in the classroom. You just can't. You can't trade that you cannot. You can't replace that. Yeah, And it's gonna be hard to I mean, the first grader getting their attention in person is difficult. I can't imagine trying to do that. I'm gonna zoom call well, and we've done the online just for a short like my right before Thanksgiving, and we did it for a short while after Christmas, just like four days and five days, and you know, it's just not enough for our kids. Just not enough for their education. It's time to get back. I mean, if you guys could do another district's conduce what? I don't know what the deal why would CPS be any different? Well, and I heard I heard earlier when the comments about you know the risk factor. Our first graders have been wonderful about wearing their math. And yes, we do. Take a mask breaks, But our our little ones have been wonderful about wearing their masks, keeping them on washing their hands, hand sanitizing.

"Bye, Billy. Coming into Great America. Welcome this Friday afternoon in the tri state. We made it through the weekend, one peso and were alive when the weather seems to have similar going on a little bit better over the weekend, but not much. Yesterday. Melanie Bates has been on the scoreboard in Cincinnati about 20 years came on to talk about her perspective of what should happen, which is which is great to have her on. Mike Marassi also comes on with slowly now and then. And I'm reading in the U. S. A Today addition this morning online that Chicago public school teachers dominated by the union refused to report to work on Monday, having been ordered to do so by the Chicago Board of Education and also indirectly by the mayor Lori Lightfoot. Here in Cincinnati, largely since the end of August. There should have been no learning hybrid learning, and that's about it. And Cincinnati and last night I'm watching this story on Channel Channel nine were nine stands for news. 11 in 11 in school board. I watched the superintendent speak. They've been fighting this thing since the third week in August, and generally they're 95% in person learning. If something occurs, they reacted with the teachers are on board. Many of the schools there are using the gymnasium as a makeshift cafeteria. The screens air up, everyone is masked. Their stations where you wash your hands in between classes. You wash your hands. They're on it and their education is proceeding and all the Catholics goes the programs, schools and northern Kentucky Greater Cincinnati. Largely, they've been in person since the end of August. In fact, many didn't go out last March. Simply got after it. Whatever the obstacles were, they overcame them. That is not the case and urban public education, whether it's Columbus or Cleveland or Toledo or Dayton or whether it's Philadelphia or Chicago. The teachers unions dominate. They get to school board members elected by donating shoe leather and money, volunteerism to get him elected. And once they get elected there in the pockets of the union. And it's upsetting when I see Ah, lot of people fighting toe work, whether you're on an oil rig or you're you're a garbage man. You work behind the counter somewhere or you're in the restaurant, business fighting toe work. Men and women are selling pharmaceuticals. People are act actively trying to actually get out of the butcher's the bakers that Candlestick makers all want to work. There's a part of our society that does not want to work and they use is a shield as a mass, the safety of the Children. As a reason not to go to work among those of the teachers joining you and I now is cold Frederick, who is a volunteer plus and a mentor and CPS and Nicole Frederick, Welcome again to the Bill Cunningham Show and Nicole, How are you? I'm doing great. How are you, Bill? I'm doing well, a little bit angry about what's happening in Cincinnati because CPS students are always falling behind by any objective measurement, And this is an excuse in the future. To hear more arguments as to why Achievement cannot occur. So for those who are not paying much attention to the 35,000 students and CPS, can you kind of walk us through since the middle of March of the first of April of last year? And all the way through today Friday afternoon to talk about what is the status of education at CPS. Well, just like you touched on. You know any time you have a large school district, urban they inherently have obstacles anyway, so the education gap is already kind of Established anyway. So when we started this passed down in March, and we reacted with the information that we had in March. Everyone was super super cautious because that's all we knew as it evolved. And as we learned more and things that we found out about how this spread and our Children vulnerable are the older people want more stuff change. We found out that Children in schools is not the spread of this virus. In fact, many organizations from your CDC to the American Academy of Pediatrics even doctor fast approaching this past week, has said that schools are steaks. Why are they safe? Because the protocols are in place, and it's up to that individual teacher to make sure that her classroom or his classroom is safe. It's not that difficult. You wear your math. You can stay 3 ft. Apart from one another, you wipe down your surfaces. You stay home. If you're not feeling well, it is a safe environment cause the teachers can make it safe. And for whatever reason, Well, which we all know why Um, since a public has has put the labels of a fear based of it's a death trap to send these Children's active school. No, it's not Look around you CPS. Rules all around. You have effectively mitigated this virus. Um, since August, and they've been in school five days or they will be in school for with one day blended learning or online learning. Toe white down the school and different things like that, which is fine. But to keep the students out, their education is suffering. Humongous. I mean, it's it's awful. And at this point, especially if you have a special needs child or someone that really lives in a horrible circumstance that the last year is a time that's non recoverable, and I talk about Many of the studies indicate that by the time a child is five years old The first five years of a child's life are critical to the learning process to turn the light switches on in each room is you go through your life because their foundation is there, and those first five years are critical. They have all the rooms of your life filled maybe the light switches and on but there's wiring in the wall. You kind of know how to read. You kind of know how to catch. You know how to behave, You know, acceptable behavior. And and I, as I understand it. The worst gold district in the tri state by any objective measurement academically is Cincinnati public schools and among the most expensive or Cincinnati public schools. And so the teachers are saying at this point for a long time, we're not going to report to work. And then on Monday, coming up on Monday, is there unlike Chicago, is there. Is there a feeling the teachers rock actually show up for work on Monday? This is my opinion from from the teachers that I be, too. And the tools that I work with people already. People are ready to come back now. You're always gonna have your teachers that loved to phone it in. They like being able to wake up. Put on a little Maschera. Throw on the zoom call from their PJs at desk and then send the document up. Say, hey, students, So look at this document, and I'll check in with you tomorrow and then they go back and they're doing Whatever it is that they're your off their offer getting paid not to work. There are off. But then you've got other teachers who are really trying to make this work because they genuinely care about their students, and they recognize that we're doing our society a great Injustice if we don't educate our students because an educated society is a successful society, and like you said, we are missing out on a whole year that we can't get back. I mean these students whether they're little, especially up into the high school, they need structure and like these high school kids You're telling me That 15 and 16 year old with no structure at home. You know we were treating him like college kids They're not logging on. They're probably,.
