Rep. Gary Palmer: 'The Vast Majority of Teachers Are in It for the Right Reasons'
"Has it been a sort of amazing to you how much control the education unions are mass vaccines, man? A really not wanting to go back in the classroom? Isn't that concerning going into this next elect cycle? And if it is, how can we talk about it in a positive way? To get people understanding. I think the vast majority of teachers are in that profession for the right reason done. The vast vast majority. I think they want to teach what's driving teachers out of the classroom, where all of the rules and the changes in curriculum and a lot of it has to do with stuff like critical race theory and all this wokeness. It's taking away from what they considered their live mission to teach a kid to read it, teach a kid how to do math or to have a love of history or science. And I think the education union is largely responsible for this. I don't think this is when you look at the number of people who teach in the school versus the number of people who are actually members of the education union voluntarily. It's a very small percentage that running this education into the ground. And by the way, we had a markup, a markup in energy commerce committee, where there were two or three Democrats that said CRT, critical race theory was a myth that it didn't exist that there wasn't being done in any schools. And entered into the record, a resolution from the national education association, calling for the teaching of critical race theory on every school in America and setting up a separate program within the NEA that they funded at a 120 some $1000 to promote it. That is going to be one of the most destructive things that we've ever seen happen to education in this country. And it's going to drive more and more kids out of the public
Why Are Conservatives so Squeamish About Educational Choice? Rep. Gary Palmer Tells Us
"Difference between the liberal perspective of education and the conservative perspective of education, especially when it comes to school choice. We believe that the parents and the families and the communities should have choice and how they pick and choose and how they go to school and how we redo that. Liberals of course with the NEA, the Georgia association of educators, Paige, others, folks like that. These union folks believe that is only the professional educators that should decide that and the government should be the choice. Why is it that we have such a hard time with Republicans and you know this wells out there? They might not say it out loud, but they get real squeamish when we start pushing choice, but yet we see it works in communities of color. We work in. It just works. Why are we so squeamish about it? Well, we shouldn't be. Every kid's different. There's not a single one of those NEA members that got up in the middle of the night. To take care of a warm markets when they were sick, or to change their diapers or to take them on their doctors appointments. They don't know our kids, don't. We do. And this is what you're seeing in education is a microcosm of what the country would look like under socialism. They want to make everybody the same and they want to control all of your personal decisions. Including the future of your kids. And what we want to do is empower parents to help their kids achieve. And to not try to force them into things that they're not prepared for or not ready for.
Christopher Rufo's Reaction to the Federalization of School Board Meetings
"Chris ruco senior fellow Manhattan institute who's been on top of this critical race theory issue for years Chris thank you for all that you've done and all that you're doing You know this national school board association letter I was an old school board member when I was 19 or 20 years old This board represents nobody This looks like an inside job They write a letter on the 29th with all these allegations of very few examples And to the president of the United States and then within 5 days the Department of Justice issues this Stasi like memo What do you make of this Yeah I think it's absolutely clear from the timing and also the context that school board officials as well as the national teachers union including Randy weingarten and the NEA which represent millions of public school teachers They're starting to lose the argument about critical race theory about masking and schools And so they realized that they have to take more heavy handed measures So they reached out to their longtime partners people who are willing to do their bidding and the Biden administration And you see immediate compliance and then immediate celebration from the school board association president from the national teachers union president This is a very clear politicization of the Justice Department of the FBI of the office of attorney general to send it very clear signal If you're protesting against the authorities in your local area we're going to monitor you We're going to suppress you We're going to chill your speech and you're very basic rights of speech and assembly I think it's very concerning And I'm glad that people are starting to take notice and push
Education Secretary Cardona Says Parents Are Not Primary Stakeholders in Education
"And this is what goes on In school district after school district in this country I think there's about 14,000 school systems It's highly political And the left runs these schools Say the candidate now for governor of Virginia who says parents don't get to make these decisions about their students All you get to do is pay massive confiscatory property taxes like all of us do they have kids in school or not And you leave it to the Democrats because that's what the NEA and the AFT are all about You leave it to the Democrats You leave it the sink offense on school boards You leave it to the so called administrators who are all over And your kid to have with your kid And the secretary of education essentially said the same thing At a hearing today Listen to this cut 13 go Do you think parents should be in charge of their child's education as the primary stakeholder I believe parents are important stakeholders but I also believe educators have a role in determining educational programming And I think that's going to be a little out of focus what I think you're going to find across all elements of education since they pay the bills They raise the kids They probably need to be the primary spokespeople for their own kids good education This is how you view America
Back to School With the President of the NEA
"When we talk about how you having an up close and personal view you really did with your family leading the nea. And i really appreciate you hitting on the point. That teachers are also parents. Because i think so. Many people forgot that they're just not here. You know schooling your kids. They also have to do the same for years. So when the pandemic hit. Let's go back to the beginning. What were you immediately thinking when you knew that. The majority of teachers and students couldn't be in physical classrooms in. How was that going. To impact education system in our i immediately started thinking about the disparate impact and that showed up right away but used the irony of the timing for me is that The nea had just convened over sixty groups education group civil rights groups at the end of february february twenty twenty. We combine them in a coalition that we called the homework gap coalition because we had so many students and families who did not have access to the internet who did not have technology tools that they had at home and we already knew that they were going home and coming back to school with a gab of opportunity because so much of the homework now required that they had that connectivity and are black and brown indigenous students did not have that mpm lease did not have that accident so we have put together this coalition to to address that and to demand from the federal government that they allocate funds to close that gap within a month. It was no longer about the homework out. It was about the learning and access to the classroom. Gap that again. Disparately impacted are black and brown digital students are students. Living in poverty are students with disabilities in our marginalized communities that had always all ready and always been impacted by these inequities. Now all of a sudden they're very access to learning had been cut off from them their access to meals. You saw that you saw that on full

Why Won't Rhode Island NEA's Jennifer Azevedo Let Parents Have Oversight Over Education?
"An email to the South King Sounds any A's listed contact. Just bounce right back. State chapter deputy executive director. Jennifer as a veto. The local NBC TV station Provident, wrote Providence, Rhode Island, quote. We're asking the court to conduct a balancing test to determine whether our members privacy rights outweigh the public interest. We believe they do, and those records should either not be disclosed or should be redacted accordingly. Unquote Yo. Missus a veto. I got an even better idea. It's called school choice. Instead of continuing to allow the government school system to indoctrinate our Children and ideologies we find to be abhorrent. Why not allow American citizens to have oversight and control over the Children's education? Now the teachers unions will never agreed to that because they are trying to fundamentally transform our society. They are playing the long game. Remember when you get March new book, American Marxism read the whole thing. The last chapter tells us what we are going to have to do to restore freedom and liberty to this great country.
Cornell Professor Suggests Collusion by NEA Chapters in Lawsuit Against South Kingstown Mother
"Now with Mrs Solis received the motion. For the temporary restraining order and injunction yesterday. She asked if teachers unions bullying moms will be an everyday thing now. Okay? Cornell University law professor William Jacobson, whose legal Insurrection foundation Has filed similar public records request to the South Kingstown School district. Wrote Wednesday that the lawsuit makes little sense on its face, He said the district is not shy. About asserting exemptions, as evidenced by the hundreds of fully redacted pages. It turned over to Jacobson's foundation fully redacted. That means like page after page after page is just black, nothing And there's no reason to believe the information that concerns union qualifies as public records. Jacobson says his initial take That smells like collusion. The South Kingstown school district doesn't want to produce records and the union is helping them out. That's what he says. At least it looks like to him.

Today's wednesday came out on. A tuesday has sold over seven hundred thousand copies. Seven hundred thousand copies now. He talked briefly about this yesterday. I'll talk briefly about it today. Then we'll move on. The academic year is beginning. The academic year is beginning for college and university students and it's beginning for public school students. We all know what's going on on our college campuses. And those of you. Who've read american marxism you know better than anybody. There must be intellectual pushback on the indoctrination. That's occurring in our colleges and universities. There must be intellectual pushback pushback of ideas. They're not going to get it there. There is no academic freedom. If there's somebody who hasn't thrown in with the marxist professors there are frequent nature. There are very rare exception in many of you asked me. What can we do. Well perhaps perched purchased a copy of american marxism for yourself which is a great thing. And i can't thank you but it's important but perhaps he should purchase one per student who's going into college or university so they can take it with them so when they're confronted with marxism in its various iteration whether it's critical race theory whether it's lack credit whether it's so called climate change the de growth movement or whatever it is they will be in a position to open a book read about it and if they choose confront the professor at least raise some questions but at least in their own minds. Not be brainwashed and indoctrinated. You've heard people call here. They've lost their kids when they've gone to colleges and universities there's no need for this millions of us who can push back. This book is sixteen thousand eighty cents college. Tuition is tens of thousands of dollars. Some people come up to me and they'll say something like well. You know what. This book should be required in colleges and universities. It's not going to be required in colleges and universities there the enemy for the most part with one or two three exceptions but the way this book could be on colleges and universities in enormous number them is through. You is giving it some two neighbors friends. Family members her going to colleges and universities and sending. Please take this with you. That's how we get this book. Not through compelling it but this is how we get the book on colleges and universities. It's really quite remarkable when you think about it in a very odd way. We are trying to get debate. Free speech ideas on college campuses and universities rather than brainwashing and indoctrination that takes place and the only way we can really do. That is to arm students with this book. American marxism so. I wanna strongly encourage you to do that. Secondly we've seen the brave brave parents and others attend the school board meetings if you have a son or a daughter who's in high school or who's going into high school. This book is not going to be handed out as a text in any school system. In america that's run by the nea in the a of tea in the educational bureaucrats. There's no way because it criticizes them. That doesn't mean you can't make sure that these kids have them whether your home schooling or some kind of alternative school plan for your kids. How about these kids going into these public because we pay for them. Can you imagine if they show up with american marxism. Could you imagine. If they've they've started to read it even before they go into these schools. I want to encourage as many of you as possible to take control of this as best you can..

"Well, not exactly because you do have independence out there in those independents would be people like Bernie, Sanders, of course, and I'm sure that Bernie Sanders would be very happy to know. That he's going to receive a grant of thirty, two, thousand, thirty, four dollars this year. So, while we may think, well, at least they gave two percent I mean. Do you think two percent of the teachers are the conservative teachers and ninety eight percent of the teachers or really more like ninety nine percent of the teachers are the liberal and the socialist teachers in our country? I mean I. May Be surprised by the numbers and I. Definitely think that liberalism at far outweighs conservatism which while we have to stick together. But Ninety nine roughly ninety, eight to ninety, nine percent of the money goes to liberal causes leftist causes. That's why I think that it is high time that WE DE-FUND NEA by simply getting out of the organization. Now, here's the kitch-, if you're a member of a and my state, you automatically get your membership to any A. There's a partnership there and you need to check and see if that's the same top partnership in your state. Now, do think that teachers need to be protected I. do think that we need to have people fighting for us I I think that's practical. Thinking is common sense at the same time though it sickening to me to know that. So much of the money that is given by teachers all across this country teachers who are working hard every day. Teachers are going out and putting themselves at risk from dangerous students or crazy drivers or whatever. It may be that almost three point eight, million dollars of their money that they've contributed to this union that should be fighting for them is simply just giving it away to politicians. At the end of the day that's where the money's going. So it's important to note that. Yes. You see almost like the more liberal candidate is the more money they receive now joe, Biden aside because he is running for president but we do know he's paired up with Kamala Harris August. It's while there's a combination there. But Bernie Sanders who is this far out socialist? Also, promises forgiveness of student debt forgiveness of you know free college and free everything everybody gets rainbows and Unicorns with Bernie they gave him thirty two thousand dollars. Now, it's also not surprising as we cover before the ill haunt who also is promising to cancel rent. I'm not sure how you do that cancel mortgages on not sure do that either. But she's wanting to cancel everything no expenditures for anybody she's a social issues to cancel student loan debt she wants to give free college to everybody. She also received a huge chunk of change which occurs probably more related to the race. Now. I do want to be fair to the NEA. Since it is an educational association and it has good ideas I think that it could stand for good members. Now, there's no doubt that the president after the first debate. So just keep that in mind this has been a few weeks back. But after the first debate, the NEA president, becky pringle put out a press release saying after tonight's debate educators or even more fired up to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris I mean she was talking about how covert has been so bad in schools and teachers are putting their life on the line all the while she rusts those big three point eight, billion dollar checks not for P. P. Not for protective glassware not for face shields not for the plexiglas screeners..

"She has done nothing but benefit herself and while any a has given almost $11,000 to Omar for her congressional seat. She's been playing video games at night with other people on Twitter and tweeting about it constantly. I mean that really seems like a good resource of money. I mean, why are they giving her the money? What has she done so great for Education that she deserved $10,000 almost eleven naturally. Rashida tlaib is another one. That's one of the squad members who has received $4,256 now noticed the drop here Nancy Pelosi gets almost 12 grand and I'm sure they did that because she took in Nancy Pelosi ilhan Omar almost $11,000 almost $11,000. So she was really close to getting exactly what the speaker of the house was getting. I guess they see Omar is a very important candidate. Either that or they know that she's in a very tight race and she's in trouble because she does a terrible job. Okay. Now the next one the next house one from that is Rashida too long to receive $4,256 next in line an IR Presley twenty $207. And then of course Alexandria ocasio-cortez at $2,769, I know that she received more than an eye appraisingly, but that's how I had my notes typed out. I'm sorry, but you can see the squad members all here together. Just keep this in mind received about $20,000 from any a now if you're a dog For that is 20 grand $20,000 of your money that went to these candidates. And on top of that that is $30,000 put together with what Pelosi and these five other members got and if we want to start looking at Rough numbers that is $100,000 that simply went to Biden Harris for president and five Congressional members $100,000 off $100,000. I mean, do you not see the hypocrisy here and why you think that any a must be, you know, being able to line the pockets of these politicians campaigns, they must be getting some kind of kick back or something out of it, but see the contributions don't just end in the house because it also extenuates over into the Senate and I remember this is on the national wage. I'm not sure you need to look and see how much money your local organization or your state organization is giving because I promise you they're giving some money somewhere. I'm satisfied they're doing so.

"Every person just keep all that in mind. Okay. So looking at this, here are some of the people who have received the money outside of the Biden Harris for president campaign. Okay Nancy Pelosi got eleven thousand, four, hundred, and seventy one dollars. Eleven, thousand, four, hundred, seventy, one dollars for. That I'm absolutely sure there is no competition for. Any NEA decided they would write over. A ten. Thousand Dollar Chick. To Nancy Pelosi for what reason? Why did they give her that money? Amir. They just trying to pat her pockets. This is not the lobbying money I. Want you to keep that in mind because I do think organizations are going to lobby I think that they probably need to a special education associations or companies do it pharmaceutical companies? Do It education is going to have their lobbying people? Okay. This is not money spent on lobbying. This is money strictly given to the campaigns of these politicians nancy, Pelosi rakes in almost twelve grand. For what reason I mean is such a dead heat race where Nancy Pelosi, which I would hope would be the case I would think that would be awesome. But is nea so afraid that Nancy Pelosi. Is. GonNa lose. They're bringing in twelve thousand dollars to her campaign. And what benefit does that give any members? Rotten. Now we know the Pelosi? Stonewalling. President Trump stonewall of the Senate. If she doesn't get her bail out for her state that's ran poorly she is stonewall and she's wanting to do no relief. You can have your feelings about how the relief should be spent but. She's not benefiting our country at all right now but yet any egg is our twelve grand and he just doesn't make any sense bayless move on a little bit squad members are following suit Johan, Omar, for those of you who don't know who she is I'm sure if you're concerned, you've heard this name before she is the congresswoman from Minnesota who does not lot president trump and her has good way to put this. Her citizenship could be questioned. It never will be, of course because now she's in that swampy waters of Washington DC so she'll never get questioned. But you'll haunt Omar follow suit along with Nancy Pelosi and she has received a ten, thousand, nine, hundred and fifty, two dollar donation from the NEA. So the numbers continued to show here now I think Omar is in more of a competitive race then Nancy Pelosi would be in I don't think Nancy. Pelosi's in as much danger as more is but Omar definitely could have some competition because she's done a terrible job she has done nothing but benefit herself. and. While NEA has been almost live thousand dollars to Omar four her congressional seat, she's been playing video games at night with other people on twitter and tweeting about it constantly. I mean that really seems like a good resource of money I mean, why are they giving her the money? What has she done so great for education that she deserved ten thousand dollars almost eleven actually. Repeated to leave as another one. That's one of the squad members who has received four, thousand, two, hundred, and fifty six dollars now notice the drop here. Nancy Pelosi. Gets almost twelve grand and I'm sure they did that because she simply Nancy Pelosi. Johan Omar almost eleven thousand dollars. Almost eleven thousand dollar. So she was really close to getting exactly what the speaker of the house was getting a guest I. Say Omar is a very important candidate. Either that or they know that she's a very tight race and she's in trouble because she does a terrible job. Okay. Now, the next one, the next house warned from that is related to leave who received four, thousand, two, hundred, and fifty, six dollars next in.

Statistic that I want you to keep in mind because I think it's very important that if we're going to look at these National organizations, and of course if you are a member or if you are part of this organization and you don't agree with these organizations, you need to let your voice be known. I think that's part of the process we have in our country that you should look at all Sites. But any a has given 98.35% of the monies they have contributed now, this is from the largest teacher Union in the country keep that in mind and it's all going to democratic candidates. So who are the candidates that are getting some of this money if we break it down and we look at it, you know, ninety 8% of the money has been given to Democrats. Well while the Democrat Party may think well, they're more Pro education and Trump is saying he needs to give school choice. Okay. Wait a minute here for just a second. Let's set everything to do with school choice and everything aside. Joe Biden has not given this grand plan on what he wants to do with schools. He just said he wants to give schools more funding. So was that y n e s giving him the money so instead of any using the money to help their members to help benefit those who need p p e as they So Cal say they do all the time instead of giving money to classroom teachers for resources or four places glass or whatever. It may be they simply decided to just urinate this money away and put it in the pockets of politicians at least in their campaigns.

"Now before we start, I want to remind you of something what have we heard in the debates what have we heard from people in the congressional seats at schools need money schools need money and I know that three million dollars would not have the problems I understand that. So if you're going to send that hate mail I mean go ahead and send it but I understand three million dollars would not fix the problem. But this is almost four million dollars that they have not given in grants. They have not given it for teacher supplements or supplies. They have not even given this money in the pandemic year that we have to schools throughout the country for p. p. e. it would be nice if they said, hey, we're going to give. Protective equipment to regional or small schools whatever may be but that hasn't been done. See they have taken three point, seven million dollars plus almost three point eight and they have given all to politicians. Every bit of. This includes almost seventy thousand dollars have just been given to the Joe Biden. kampen itself. Now I know what you're thinking that doesn't sound like a lot of money but my Gosh A.

The National Education Association political contributions go even deeper than that with just the Biden Campaign See Democratic candidates.

The Future of Education
"As students. Head back to classrooms and other countries schools are adapting in order to keep students safe in Taiwan. For example there are now plastic partitions around the desks of elementary school students during lunch the Australian government has asked more vulnerable staffers in their schools to work from home. If possible in Denmark Cafeterias are disappearing and students now eating their classrooms to avoid large gatherings. Now it's the United States turn to determine what must be done to open school safely. My colleague Evan. Mcmorris Doro has been covering the impact of the corona virus pandemic on the United States educational system. I talked with him about how and win students from pre K. To College Michael. Back to classrooms are people processing this the way that you'd expect or are they not believing that this is necessary. What are you hearing well? One of the wildest things about this whole time has been just how quickly that change had to happen so you know you think back to March. We're having a normal school year. But everything changed just so quickly. The best way I can think about describing it actually came from Lily Eskillson Garcia. Who's the president of the NEA? Which is the largest teacher's Union the United States? We're in the middle of tried to find the right metaphor. A lot of teachers have said. We're building the airplane. Well it's going down the runway. Another teacher said Oh. It's bigger than that. We're apollo thirteen. We're Houston and we have a problem and our kids are on that space ship with their parents. Isolated the efforts that go into a successful school. You're already massive. Right like the Moonshot we gotta get a crew to the moon and get them back but what happened. In this case was something went wrong along the way and actually made the job harder because all of a sudden it's not apollo eleven now it's apollo thirteen in which everything breaks down and then you have to use only the tools inside people's lives in their home lives to get education done. We think about that scene in the movie where they dumped that stuff on the conference table. Okay here's all the tubes and stuff and they have on the ship of kids. Listen we gotta find a way to make this fit into the whole for this using nothing but that well this is what they're talking about when it comes education all you have is the technology type people's houses. It's a very different kind of teaching two very different kind of education but the schools themselves in terms of doing what we count on schools to do. They were not prepared for this. Did you get any sense Evan? That they're starting to think about the fall right now. We hear about states reopening obviously all over the country and at the same time we hear. Maybe there's going to be another wave or this isn't going to really go away. Is the general sort of idea that schools will be back. Open the fall. Or what are you hearing? Well the difficulty for schools difficulty facing a lot of people which is that they have to take a long time to plan to. They're going to do next but we don't know what's going to happen next. So at baseline level. I can say this there will be schools open in the fall from the K. Through twelve level into the college level. What that looks like. We're not totally clear on few years ago for sixty minutes. I did this piece about the Khan Academy and they were making the case. I remember this years ago that There could be advantages to online learning. Are there advantages that this type of learning offers over bricks and mortar when we went to a full online system? What we learned was that we had problems with things like the education. Gap Education gathered already. Exists became much much more broad. I spoke to a teacher in. La Named Gannon's four. She can't even take attendance. Absence rates are high. We're dealing with it. The things we're dealing with some students whose parents still have to go to work and so being the oldest because I teach high school so a lot of them are having to take care of younger siblings. We do everything we can. We send emails and make phone calls and things like that so I think that we are definitely going to have a learning gap. We're going to see it in the next few years. We're going to have lower test scores. I think it's inevitable as part of your reporting if you've been talking to the students themselves I mean I'm I'm wondering what? How are they reacting to this adapting to this? The students are stressed out. We're hearing that from teachers. We're hearing that from parents and I think in my own conversation with the students themselves. I felt that same thing. There is an excitement. I think about something new at first as you've gone along with this thing you found that distresses just they? They want to go back to traditional school. I've not yet met a student who was like man. I would love to do school from my parents basement for the rest of my life. That's not something that I've heard. I think that that reflects my my kids attitudes as well although I will tell you. It's Funny Evan. Maybe not surprising when this first started. I said we're still going to maintain a schedule. You'RE GONNA GET UP. You'RE GONNA shower. You'RE GONNA brush your teeth. You know the basic stuff and now if they can roll out of bed and get to their laptop in time. It's it's sometimes asking to WanNa work in our sweatpants. They can definitely go to school. Sweatpants right one. One thing that we are seeing is is that some schools are reopening You know in Montana for example and I'm wondering how are they approaching it? What are they doing there? Are there lessons? I guess for for the rest of the country because Montana is a state very different from more populous states. They had these really small schools in these really small school districts. One of them is Willow Creek School. Which is has sixty kids in it. It's a town of two hundred and fifty people about and sixty kids. The Superintendent and the principle of Willow Creek is named Bonnie Lower and what she described was the school day. Very different than what we're used to. We have six foot distant marks on the playground so that they can play games at recess and save six feet away from each other and we will alternate our bell schedule so that kids are not in the hallways at the same time. Common areas are being disinfected regularly. Every classroom has hand sanitizer wipes teachers have masks. So if they're in a student's bubble they put the mass on. They'll there's a lot of precautions. Bathrooms will be used one at a time. We're ready to get back to normal as normal as we can and even the arrival school is very different so they've had to reduce bus schedule so a lot of parents are dropping their kids off and then once the kids get to school are led into the building by an adult one by one and before they go in their temperature is taken. There's no more luncheon cafeterias so they are in the building but the school day looks very very different and these are the kind of things that we may see in schools across the country when they reopened. This is the challenge. The challenge is how to try to do social distancing in something that was never designed for that. We've all been forced to evaluate risk differently. I mean the truth is that we all take risks on a daily basis. Getting in a car and driving is one of the riskiest things that we typically do. And there's a lot of people who say well a kick ball and then somebody touched that I touched it with my hands and then I touched my eyes. My nose my mouth something like that. What are the chances of me really getting infected? And it's still very hard. I think for for public health officials to answer that question but I think what they'll typically come back to is at the answer is that the risk is low but it's not zero. I spoke with a rising college freshman from Minnesota who are trying to plan on what schools he was. GonNa go to and the college campuses are out there right now advertising. Look we're going to reopen. We don't know how we're going to try to make say we're GONNA change the way dorms work classes. Whatever what they really have to try to convince people that they can create a safe environment. I asked this kid. This is an eighteen year old kid. I said look if they open a college campus right now would you go and he said no right now. I would not maybe in August. Maybe if I could be convinced that things were safe but right now I'm not ready to go. So there's there's a difference in how people take that risk and feel about the risk factors and feel about how things are going on that. Maybe you have a situation where these elementary school students in Montana. Their parents are feeling like look. This is a worthy risk. Will take you know. We'll see how it goes but doesn't work. We'll just shut things down again and it's not that big a deal and on

Understanding Enneagram Personality Types
"As our regular listeners know over the past few weeks. We've been talking with subject matter. Experts one on one about critical workplace challenges returning from last week is our guest Chelsea sergeant a licensed professional professional counselor and certified specialist in the NEA Graham a two thousand year old personality examination Chelsea is here via phone to continue or discussion around the program as we take a closer look at the specific personality profile types that make up the assessment welcome back Chelsea. It's great to be with you once again as not pleasure to be here Chelsea last week our podcast listeners were introduced to the India Graham at a broad odd based level and we heard about its origin and its significance both individually and in the workplace this week we have an opportunity to dive into three specific vic types and why I understanding these profiles matter Chelsea. Can you help recap briefly for our listeners who are just tuning in how you determine. I'm in your India Graham number or type and what are the first three any agreement types that we should focus on and why is this order significant absolutely the Graham like I described in the last episode is a two thousand year old personality examination and it is composed of nine different types or numbers or profiles you will hear me use all three of those words interchangeably throughout you talking about the Graham and to discover your any gram tight it really just begins with understanding and discovering what the neograft is and whenever I do trainings trainings are start exposing people to this personality assessment I always begin by talking about all the numbers and the number that I begin with is eight and I will focus in on what we call the the first triad which is the Gut Triad or the anger triad these numbers I which is eight nine and one which are the numbers that we're going to focus on today all of these numbers feel things in their body and they do this in different ways they also have easily accessible anger and they manifest this in different ways and this'll be explained along away as we we talk about eight one and nine. We're going to get into these three. I just have a general question here. Just for listeners you mentioned a triad how many triads are they and what is their significance. There are three triads on the program. The first one which is composed of eight nine nine and one is the Gut Triad or the anger triad and these people feel things in their body when they are making decisions or trying to come. I'm to conclusions on things the second triad which is the two three and the four this is the heart triad or the feelings triad and and these numbers feel things deeply they make decisions or come to conclusions through feelings and they each do this in different ways. We'll talk about that further when we get to those numbers and then the thinking triad which is composed of five six and seven they come hunting collusions or used thought or their head to make decisions and view the world through the lens of thinking. Let's come back then to this the gutter anger triad as you described it and let's break each of these down each of the three numbers in the trial down. Can you talk about the agents as leaders and how understanding understanding this profile type might be useful or significant in the workplace absolutely the eights are known as the Challenger they are the big thinkers in the room. They can make things happen they have tons and tons of energy and they're very decisive. They are motivated by being strong wrong and they do not want to be controlled. Many eights will tell you that's probably one of the worst things that can happen to them. Specifically in the workplace is feeling like they are being controlled. They move things forward with Gusto they overcome issues quickly and they do not mind challenging challenging authority you call them the challenges and I think that's that's a wonderful frame. Sometimes they feel to me like contrarians yes yes they can again because they are so direct because they have so much energy and because they do not mind coming up against authority. They can definitely GonNa Cross that way. Yeah is this also the type there when people in the room that feel that they are smarter or they know more or they just always have to add their own little bit of commentary on something. They just can't seem to let something go yeah they can also come across aggressive because they sometimes at a hard time letting things go or they have a powerful voice and take up a lot of energy in the room definitely come across in those ways they're also what people it calls specifically in the workplace pretty powerful leaders in our Western business culture a lot of CEO's at the highest levels rates. They're they're both really appreciate their directness. There's thousands of books imprint on leadership very few books on followership. Does this kind of a powerful leader. Is this someone that employs would want to follow. They find that compelling. That's a really good question. I think eight in a healthy sense absolutely louis because they are quick fingers because they move things forward in a timely fashion people wanna get behind them because as the trains moving fast and it is moving forward in a direction that is usually appealing to people when age are not healthy they can come across as aggressive S.'s they can come across as overpowering they can come across as intimidating which may make people feel scared working underneath them and or not seen working underneath them because eight moves so quickly so interesting and I'm assuming then that there are healthy and unhealthy expressions expressions of each type absolutely you'll hear me say a lot people living into the healthier parts of their personality or the unhealthy parts of their personality personality and another word I always use is having self awareness and so it's being self aware of how much energy they take up a room how much energy they have and being self aware that that this is not how everyone functions is there a disadvantage here. YOU'RE A gender based disadvantage for women if they are innate such a good question male eights are often praised and encouraged inuit workplace and I have found females come in and see me specifically win bear in the CEO positions or in higher levels of management they they have a lot of wounded nece about their more aggressive personality stance within the workplace and they have been told over years they need to calm down or back-off back-off or that. They're too much or as their male counterparts. Those personality traits of themselves are really praised and so they feel like they're having to walk a fine line of being who they really are and using that powerful energy and then not coming across too aggressive is it that there are unhealthy characteristics characteristics of each trait or is it an individual who might be an eight or any other number who lacks the self awareness of their impact on others so that their a personality type feels unhealthy in its expression yeah. I think it's the latter of what you just mentioned again. Self awareness is key in this and so you knowing about yourself and how you're coming across and what you bring to the room into the table and so not all personality types are GonNa going to respond well to bluntness or to you powerfully expressing your feelings and it doesn't necessarily mean that you have to morph into a different person when you walk walk into a room but it does mean that you having a good understanding that not all people are gonNA respond well to that and that you can bring up different parts of yourself to harness in some of the energy or put that energy into healthy ways when weeding teen okay. Let's talk about nine as leaders and how understanding this profile type might be critical for people in the workplace to understand yes so nines. It's it's a fascinating native transition between eight hundred nine whereas eight when they come into the room they bring all the energy and have the most energy on the nine's had the least energy energy on the program they are known as the Peacemakers Bay value harmony and want to avoid conflict at all costs they often often talk about feeling overlooked or feeling like they don't matter they value things working well and going smoothly and do not like drawing attention attention to themselves nine very much go with the flow and they are very easy to get along with so nines that our leaders one of the things that I often hear from people who are being led by nines is that it's easy to relate to and talk to the nine they are inviting. They at times are are or appear to be good listeners and they're just really easy to get along with their enjoyable to to have conversations with and have relationships with but there's a downside

This is a pretty interesting idea that you had here so tell me a little bit about marketing Americana and their affiliation with craft craft glass bro landmark been here forever. It's really went through a lot of changes since its inception but you know the crab craft beer scene really flew up probably ten years ago and I think that the concept here's all along with that we went from having hope nope twelve fear of domestic threats twenty total realize that there's a huge demand here and we expanded that to be forty draft beers and to have a strong focus towards the area what South Jersey Breweries Tristate Breweries Philadelphia's obviously twenty five minutes away feels local to me. US Asfaw lived there as well so very local but that's really been our been a big part of that. We are going to be a beer. I lace harmonies float around beard. You know we want you to have some beers control the food you know spirits. They have a place here as well but you know I think that the heart of what our concept is is it is about the beer. It's nice to see because one of the things that's happened in the craft beer landscape is that you guys were early adopters this obviously this is. How many years is this for the festival. This is the seventh year so there was kind of a whole here for a long time with people that would have craft beer and I guess with the Robo Abo- innovation that's happened here. There's been influx but you guys one of the early adopters and do a great job with it. I noticed that you have a good representation from all over the state in Philly here which is nice and you know they do have they do have some big name beards that you know that need to have which were not averse to. We are Bir see not script but it's nice to see somebody as big as you guys. It has such a force here in Gloucester County and surrounding area really adopt the craft and kyle. You have a great list of local beers share. A great tap list of WHO actually decides on which Beers on tap is that you have a committee. I'm not that involved in the beer selection here to give a lot of the credits Nikki Nado who is here today he was the one running around getting all this stuff organized for us he does most the selections dealing with the Reps and the local guys play into his taste buds so a lot of credit on that Mitzi great job nick so when you guys are when you start to craft beer one of the things that is a not an issue but is your servers and I know that I've been here a bunch of times your servers actually know how to describe era so as the director of operations that something you guys put in the plan for your for your locations Yep. It's executed properly. All of our staff has to go through a relatively relatively rigorous training all what we offer terms of not just food spirits opinion beer and being able to actually describe the different styles is pretty very important and being able to lead people in the right direction a lot of a lot of novice beer drinkers are looking for certain flavor and you have to be able to know the list we talk yeah. We talk about this all the time so key tell me what tastes like coors light and then direct them to the Water Fountain then but there is. There's something here for everybody. Craft Beers expanded to such a point nine Clark. Even we have an article coming up or would have been out already on non alcohol beer is that are really making a big splash thing. It's against my religion the not Alcohol Beers but what's Nice is I think the breweries all making something that can get the entry level here drinking and looking your tap. Lets you do have those as well for sure. I as I've gotten older. I've appreciated that Craft Beers evolved with my tastes now. I feel like he used to be. How crazy can we make the sphere top going to beat a drink Takao happy. Can we make it. I think a lot of that now is more. What can we make that people are going to drink a lot of lottery. You know six seven beers used. BP had six arrogant bastard. You wouldn't taste for weeks now now. There's there's enough craft beer out there that they're they're making products. That are fun to try. You can have a much of different things and enjoy your enjoy summer day Zoya Winter Day whatever it is and I appreciate that they're they're bringing it down a little bit but keeping the flavor there that's true I mean I like to see a lot of five five and a half's to have a lot of flavor that you can have five or six out and still mo the lawn in a straight line. It's not going to ruin your day. Hey No long sessional. Beers is the big the big new thing we're seeing a lot of cultures a lot of fully flavored. Ip as that are coming coming up forty five percent founders kind of broke the mold on that with all day. I Ta Nea Ri Billick Seven Breweries just off of that brand we see dogfish coming out with the same thing and all all the major brewers following in suit so just natural evolution. I guess to see ready was trying to make some stuff in fact one of our friends at Tom. Foley just has a low calorie one hundred Ed coury. Ida says that he just came out with and so as the market has evolved. There's not just ten breweries. You have to be able to to bring some frog consumers so I'll glassware beer festival. That's one of the reasons that we here as well so tell us a little bit about what's going on with this year. I know that you have a big qasis on Jersey beer yet this year. I think we're we're getting close to half of the total participants being from Jersey. I think a great weekend when you can do it is to go to a town. Check out the breweries that are there. They'll give you a backbone for your trip. Yes really give you can capture that into the the festival where you're like. Why a never gets a you know all these different places from your down to the tip of Cape May up to the up to the North Jersey side the validation kind of give a good representation while those monthly's emphasis sample what they have to offer. I think that's that's good. That's experienced driving towards is trying to grade their like that impossible. We'll road trip in a day yet and done a good job this year. You have a forty five plus breweries. I believe this year. They're coming last minute adults less well. That's that's the nature of the business and the Nice thing guys do too is it's a great area but tickets really reasonable so you had the VIP package that runs from twelve to five that gives you early initiative. That's one of fifty bucks. I mean that is that is a great price. Fifty dollars for a pours two was too. We're doing according to the ABC and that report is exactly two ounce. You have no more and you're you're able to come in an hour earlier to beat the crowds a little bit. I mean that's a great great. Price for forty bucks even income from one to five last four forty five and still be able to sample a bunch of beers. VIP ticket though that's the one absolutely that's a great deal and a lot of people not take my advice but I always say that he should probably start with the food exactly and they may not with a couple beers. You get the food because 'cause you whenever knows wants to eat. There's GonNa be lines there and get the food. Go the way of good base you know cruise the rest of the day. It's all about the base rallied the beating up Tom Claver Day of an article about eight things to do when you're preparing for a beer festival and that was one of them in that was definitely one of them and there's a bunch more. You can get that on the site. Sap or seen dot com but I feel like the people that come in here that power drink for the first twenty minutes to thirty minutes running around. I think they're day gets shorter. Oh yes I think they're ruining the ruined. All the other beers ability. My mind wasted what he just says a Patriot beer festivals right down the ones you want to try after about ten of Milstar taste better yeah especially with all these people are bringing these gigantic cop toward Beers speaking of yours.

Right. I we we spent a lot of time attacking Obama the man Obama the person Obama the personality the cult of Obama, right? We spent a lot of time mocking the people who worshiped Obama and pushing back on that. And listen, I'm speaking in generalities. Trust me. I know a lot of us wrote and talked and push back against the Affordable Care Act about ObamaCare about Celinda about what he did with the NEA about what happened with fast and furious about all those things, but the campaign was not about that, sadly, and he won reelection. Because we spent so much time. I think distracted by our dislike of him versus putting forth our argument against his politics and against his policy, and that's a mistake. And I think the Democrats are making that mistake right now. I don't see that. They have anything else other than Trump's a bad, man. Trumps Trump colluded with the Russians Trump's sexist Trump's a racist. Trump's to this Trump's to that. It's okay fine. Fine. Fine, fine, fine. What are you? What have you got? How are you going to do better than the lowest unemployment rate for blacks, Hispanics, and women and Asians in our history? What are you gonna do about manufacturing jobs coming back to America after you? And your party leaders said they never could what are you going to do about a soaring economy? What are you going to do with all of these other things that the president has been able to succeed with and unless they can answer that? I don't see them winning reelection. And I think that's part of the problem here too. Because of all they've got is Trump is bad and Trump is criminal and Trump colluded, and ultimately nothing comes of it, which it looks as though nothing will come of it. They looked ranged and they look like they've got nothing to offer. And I think they look that way. Because that's the case. All right. More of your reaction to this in a moment. You're believe six thirty wwl's coulda.

"Paying job then education needed. Experienced the the knowledge, but wisdom, whatever it takes. It does. I'm sure everybody's just driving me. Crazy listening to this stuff. But it is so pathetically outrageous. Without you, speaking out, I'm gonna tell you. I'm starting to get high blood pressure, my older age trae law enforcement, the whole thing really gonna tell you listening to you. It does help. I mean, believe it or not it does help. And I know there's a lot of people out there that agree with me knowing that there are some cooler heads prevailing, and and you're out there. And you've got a voice we have to get through to these people. We have to start with education of the young. I mean, Hitler did it and look what he what he sees. Educating the young pussy. We're not doing it for. I don't feel. We're doing it for a bad reason young needs to know what we are not. We look the leftist the NAFTA particularly in the NEA, given it's it's it's reach have taken over our classrooms. They've taken over our school boards for the most part. And so the left is there. You don't have classes on private property rights and capitalism and unalienable rights instead you have this Michigan. And that's part of the problem, then our universities are so called schools of higher education. Maybe you'll learn in between the the propaganda and so forth. But you know, there's just a lot of propaganda hardcore left wing propaganda going on once these teachers or professors get tenure there. You can't move them out of the classroom and more and more. We're subsidizing it the tuition's going up because they are subset. Can you? Imagine the cost of a college education. If everybody has a right to free college, sir. Well, you know, how I look I've got gotta go. I apologize. Call me tomorrow. I poly if you can get through and thank you for your service. We salute our armed forces police officers, firefighters and emergency personnel at all federal state local law enforcement, and we could've gone on for hours and hours on this problem as usual, and folks, I hope.

"But every now and then look at like, I should have done that differently. Sarah likes it sets matters. So yes. No. We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day. So the NEA mentionable you don't celebrate my birthday hurt. While celebrate your birthday. No, exactly. There's blacksmith roses. Right. I do. Yeah. Then. Well, fortunately, they kind of were just kind of died off about a week ago. But I was I was cranking. Those things out quite a few of them before I left for Sacramento. Yeah. I'd say I have that the rose the blacksmith rose I have two videos out on the roses. I have an early one a few years ago, and I was all in the forage. And then I kind of refined the process, and I put another one out last year or did the roses and that like forged vase the silhouette vase thing that goes around him. So that was cool. I like is cool. Another question from Brooklyn is an older one or finally getting around to it. So if you could start from scratch, would you want your shop in your house or would you want a separate building? This is a really good question because I've talked to people who have done both of had both. I don't know. I don't know the answer. So having had both when I didn't have it in my house. You know, it felt like it was a chore to go to the shop, but was like chop time. So I was just super productive. And then once they had it in my house. I thought well, this is great because I can just run down after dinner, and you know, throw coda finish on something running back up or Houston touchup stuff. But now, it's it's hard to stay motivated in the shop because our met my house. So I talked to somebody that had like a ridiculously big shop unto the shops face and had. Shop and he sold a lot of his stuff in downsized to move back into his shop at home for that. Same reason where you know, kind of a chore to go to the shop and get work did to get started. But once he started, I don't know. But what do you guys think I've had both as well. And I think with with hand tools, I really like it in the basement because it's not messy. It's not dusty some not having the fear of tracking that throughout the house, and it's very easy to just do a little bit and go back and especially with hand tools. It's nice to take a break from your arm swinging for an hour and a half. But I I in the past I've had a had a really nice shop with everything in. It was in a separate outbuilding on the property. And I liked that in that I had to plan a time to go there. Even though it took like twenty seconds to go between the buildings still something I think about because I go in there and to set up the shop, but having outbuildings often more expensive because you have to heat and cool that space as well. Whereas having in the basement. Here. I don't think about as part of the house. And so it's always air conditioner. It's always easy to set up go. So I think for me for hand tools. I like it inside. But if I have a power tool shop with all the power tools. I'd rather have a separate space for it. And it also depends on the money. You wanna put into it is this I hobby where you're just using a little bit of money in which case having your house is much easier. But having outbuilding costs more for heating cooling about us. Accuracy opinion, one hundred percent absolutely want slash need.

"And cultural organizations across the country, including NPR getting a grant from the NEA or any h helps them raise funds from other sources, but fundraising is a delicate time consuming process Bob Lynch's, head of the advocacy organization Americans for the arts, which also contributes to NPR, it's a fragile industry. Tunis a rich money making thing, so any little crack potentially affects people in their planning and their ability to attract other funders all of that kind of thing. It's a ripple effect visits from international artists. Could also be in jeopardy. It's show business. It's already fraught with risk, and this is one more complete unpredictable process that could blow up at any moment. Fran Goldstein is a lawyer with G G arts law firm that helps international artists secure visas to perform in the United States, mostly in classical, jazz and world music. Goldstein worries a slow down in an already complex process will make American venues nervous about programming foreign artists altogether. We already have the venues calling our office every day what's going to happen. What do we do when we pull the plug for now visa and passport services remain open? According to a State Department spokesperson, they'll stay open, quote as long as there are sufficient fees to support operations. Art lovers have had to cancel trips to those free, museums and galleries that are federally funded. That includes the art of burning man a blockbuster show at the Smithsonian's Renwick gallery and a show of works by photographer Gordon parks at the National Gallery of art both are closed during the shutdown.
