"So anyway, this is interesting, though, hundreds of highly distinguished science and math professors have signed an open letter expressing urgent concern over the state of Cal unicornia efforts to reform mathematics education in the name of social justice. We don't really have a theme for this segment, but it might be if you live in a blue state get your kids the hell out of public schools unless you live in one of those absolutely lovely, more conservative enclaves within the blue state were sanity remains at least part of the equation. No pun intended. Anyway, the letter signed by 597 science technology engineering and mathematics professionals said the California Department of Education's proposed new mathematics framework will aim to reduce achievement gaps by limiting the availability of advanced mathematical courses to middle schoolers and beginning high schoolers, making it more challenging for students to succeed in stem at college. The essence of the plan is that let's see in our union owned public schools, there's a huge achievement gap between students of color and white kids and Asian kids. Here's what we do. We make it impossible for the advanced kids to achieve. We eliminate those classes, so there's no achievement gap anymore. We've done it. We've fixed it. Of course, anybody with an ounce of sense understands how utterly amoral insidious and damaging this can be in this 600 or so teachers and professionals agree. The signatories also condemn the California Department of Education's quote deeply worrisome trend of favoring trendy but shallow courses like data science over essential mathematical tools like calculus and algebra. The framework they argued would have the opposite effect of what it intends by leading to a de facto privatization of advanced mathematics K through 12 education. And disproportionately harm lower income students subjecting the children of our largest state to such an experiment is the height of irresponsibility the letter said. So again, what they're pointing out is that if the advanced math opportunities, for all kids, disappears in public schools, it's going to privatize advanced mathematics and make it impossible for the gifted child of color, and they are our millions of them. Maybe we need to work harder to discover them, find great, let's do it. But removing those opportunities, what about obscene strategy? And the only availability of being private schools, obviously. That's just, oh, it's just so crazy. The signatories demanded that all students regardless of background have access to math curriculum with precision and rigor and that students be offered multiple pathways to explore mathematics at varying grade levels of high school, excellent idea. Multiple pathways quote far from being deliberately held back all students should have the opportunity to be nurtured and challenged to fulfill their potential. This is not only for their own benefit, but also for society in the nation's economic competitiveness. Remember Friends, we brought this to you last week, I think it was. And it was also in the context of some of the bizarre moves being made in education in New York and California, one of the heads of the teachers union said categorically and I should have printed this quote out and had it handy because it's so stunning. And this is not some obscure theoretical thinker. This is one of the leaders of the major national teachers union saying, we.

"Even if they have other safety requirements like testing or masking. The should have been part of the discussion six months ago when teachers were asking for priority. Vaccination says robin lake executive director of the center for reinventing public education at the university of washington which tracks vaccination and masking requirements around the country. It should have gone hand in hand. With an agreement that if teachers are prioritized for vaccination than all of their teachers will be vaccinated after a summer of equivocating. Both of the biggest national teachers unions have come out in support a vaccine mandates kind of the leaders of the american federation of teachers or af tea and the national education association or any a have encouraged all teachers to get vaccinated. Both unions have launched major vaccination initiatives and both boast that roughly ninety percent of their teachers have already received the vaccine bond. Both unions are advocating for a policy of either mandatory vaccinations or regular testing with language. That leaves room for local unions to negotiate these requirements with their school districts which means the national unions are called between their public posture and the inconsistent wishes of their local chapters resulting in sort of doublespeak. They say they're supporting vaccine mandates. But they're stopping short of demanding. That every school district in america require every teacher to be vaccinated. The question of whether to require teacher. Vaccinations ahead of the school. Year is becoming a matter of increasing urgency as the delta variant rips through the nation. Early studies suggest. That delta is more contagious than the earlier. Iteration of the virus reports of child infections have skyrocketed. All of the available vaccines are safe to use significantly reduce infection rates and drastically reduced the incidence of severe symptoms and death but children under age twelve are not yet eligible for vaccination which is why there's such a focus on vaccinating the adults around them but the patchwork nature of education policy means that regulations are often hammered out on a district by district or state by state basis leaving some schools vulnerable to rules defined by the anti vaccine sentiment entrenched in certain parts of the country still the momentum may be shifting towards stricter vaccine mandates on monday the fda granted full approval to the pfizer by on tech vaccine the same day that new york city. The nation's largest school district announced it was requiring all.

"The region became victims of systemic sex crimes by ethiopian and allied forces. The conflict has also led to a hunger crisis affecting over four hundred thousand people. Now the t- gray people's liberation front will combine forces with the aroma liberation army to fight against the government for aroma leaders. Playing that similar talks are also going. On with other region the updated guidance urging pregnant people to get vaccinated against with nineteen referencing new safety data. That found no increased risk of miscarriage among people who received the vaccine within the first twenty weeks of decision though. There isn't much data on birth outcomes since the vaccine is only been available since december of last year researchers argue that the risks of cova during pregnancy outweigh the theoretical prenatal. Risks of the vaccine in more vaccine news became the first state to require the vaccines for kobe. For educators and school staff national teachers unions estimate that ninety percent of teachers across the country have already been vaccinated at this point for this new requirement targets. School support staff like bus drivers janitors who had lower inoculation rates. The fda may also approve third vaccine doses for the immuno compromise depending on how the vote goes when the cdc advisory group meets this. Friday that is a lot of really good vaccine news and what sticks out to me specifically is the guidance for pregnant people. Texas house democrats. Who committed the crime of hating voter suppression might now be facing arrest last month over four dozen. Texas democrats fled the state chambers and went to dc to prevent the passage of laws that they believe would stifle voting rights earlier this week. The republican led state house voted along party lines to dispatch officers to enforce the attendance of the missing members and state house speaker. Dade phelan has already signed fifty two warrants of arrest all of this came promptly after the conservative texas supreme court overturned a ruling that found the governor greg. Abbott speaker feeling did not have the right to arrest elected officials yesterday. Eleven democrats were back in the chambers to cast dissenting votes against the enforce arrests of their colleagues should all explicit as different groups and be in little pockets in all different directions. Yeah exactly that's the easiest way to to avoid the situation The next nasa mission to the moon will likely be delayed due to issues with the astronauts fits so new extravehicular space suits that are being developed by nasa likely will not be ready in time for forecast twenty twenty four launch. That is according to report this week. From the department's inspector general so the suits will have cost about a billion dollars to develop at the time. They're finished probably even for once you buy all the cool patches of flags and various rockets we need to make a good gotta have the patches gots to have those patches ready to go extravehicular spacesuits let astronauts survive outside the spacecraft i e when they are riding the whip and this is the first time a new student guide has been built by that over forty years. Nasa's inspector general said april twenty twenty-five was as soon as the space suits are going to be ready at which point. We don't even know if wearing. Spacesuits will actually still be cool. Yeah there's there's a lot going on here but i think the biggest takeaway is that we got enough. I mean the best we possibly can when we are meeting aliens for the first time but we have no idea what isn't style up there. What the season is what the trends are. So we're going going in with no information. This is just going to. We're going to waste a billion dollars.

"But like this is new whereas he'd like how should we talk about america and history is old and he very effectively put it to the the front burner and you know one thing i mean. I always talk about with all kinds of clinical debates is like there's a mode in which people are trying to make policy changes and they say like here my concerns and then the other side can say well here are my concerns and then you can try to see. Can we reconcile these concerns. Can we reach consensus. But we are in like not that mode prayed like this is the mode where republican party politicians see an advantage in pressing this and so they welcome conflict on these points sprite like they don't they don't want to lower the temperature and make incremental gains. They wanna get people showing up to the meeting to you know. Ask tough questions about the superintendent. Yes and i think that if you look at what. Trump talked about with respect to education when he entered office. It was stuff you would expect the on recent history education. hey come cores. Bats will choices good conservatives. That very comfortable with that message with sort of what was being talked about as you said he left office. Sort of talking about hey. We need patriotic education in all these public. Schools are doing left-wing indoctrination in history class. And if you look at the language of some of these against so-called anti critical risk to rebuild several of them incorporate directly the language of trump's executive order effectively banning diversity trainings in federal governments. That sort of stuff. So there is a pretty straight line between trump's actual language in that executive order and these bills i don't think should be underestimated but yes. I think that these laws are very aggressive again. I don't know if the people passing them are very concerned about parsing out all the differences and how people reacted them what they think they can do under them and how they impact the work of actual classroom teachers and you know on the other side of the coin. You have the national teachers unions who are leaning into this Who were saying. Hey you know. We're prepared to support legal challenges. Teachers who feel like these laws are improper in affecting their work and improper ways. I i don't know they would have done the same thing to three decades ago. They are saying we're going to really put our shoulder into this. We're not going to be intimidated by people view as sort of june this about nothing in making our work harding. Creating all this outrage. So you know. I think both sides are leaning into it. Even though you have randi weingarten president the american federation of teachers who does not shy away from fights saying hey kirk risk. There is not a thing in k twelve schools and again that it's all sorts of arguments in discussion so both sides are like saying. Hey let's let's fight right. Let's take another break. And then on a wide melons. A little bit support for this episode comes from.

We've got some teachers that are even upset with yours truly. Why I'm a rabble rouser. Now. Why? Because parents are awake and parents are attending meetings and parents are looking at the structure.

"Said that I had escaped from the state of California. I passed the test. They let me out and I do not want my beautiful Arizona. To end up like California, which is exactly what prop to await is going to do now. You have your ear to the ground on this. What is your sense? What is your feeling about where the push is, with all the early voting with Prop two away? Yeah, It's quite a nice kid from New York. So if this were to pass We would be in the same top 10 bad list of high packed days as New York and California, as well as Bernie Sanders, Vermont and by the way, Bernie Sanders has endorsed it. This is right on the edge. But if people go out and vote will save the state. I mean, the way I look at it. We have an economic asteroid coming directly at our state, it would blow to smithereens. All the progress we've made make Arizona the fastest growing state in the country when it comes to job growth and population growth, or at least one of the fastest growing. That that would be ruined overnight in an instant. You can imagine the scenario where businesses were fleeing California from high tax rates driving right through Arizona going right to Texas because of this, so talk to us. Glenn Glenn hammers with us, the president, CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry about why it would decimate our economy because on the surface, it looks like two things. What they're selling it on is It's money for education, and it on ly impacts those high incomers, which most of us will never be. Well, first of all, it's a It's a billion. They face a billion dollars tact and create Or education, but but there's actually no accountability or no reform so that you know the money is not going to go into teachers pockets. In fact, Goldwater tooth make an estimate that at most 13 cents on the dollar will go into teachers pocket, so that's a bad deal. But on the economic side, it's a slam dunk to make the case against. This is a tax on small business hard stop at at least half of the filers that would be hit. By this our small businesses and the reason why many of our small businesses Filed their taxes under the individual income tax part of our code. That part would go from 4.5%, which is very competitive 8% 77.7% increase overnight. We would be hired that you mentioned in terms of technique. You don't have to go to Texas to get a farm or competitive deal. If this were to pass Utah is that 4.95% New Mexico's at 4.9. Colorado's at 4.6, so we would be much higher almost double for our neighbors right next to us, so it would be for these California companies looking to flee. And so many of these have already come to Arizona and great people have come from California that would stop and they would go elsewhere and they would take their talents and their dollars with them. Now talk to us. Glenn Hammer, the president, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, tell us about who is behind this. I know it's an out of state backing. But also if you could, who is backing it here in Arizona. Yeah, well, it's a great question. So in Arizona get out of the $20 million or so that's been disclosed to ah to to pass Proposition two away. Less than 1%. Less than 1% comes from Individual Arizona donor to the bath majority of the dollars from this comes from the national teacher's Union. In a outfit in Portland, Oregon. In fact, the outfit in Portland, Oregon, has put so much money into this. I'm scratching my head and trying to figure out why this isn't on the ballot in Oregon, not been sort of homegrown Arizona. Hell, This is an out of state special interest deal that would decimate our state's economy and do absolutely nothing to improve our education system. Zero accountability zero of reform. But a direct hit on our on our small business, which, by the way, if this path would pay double the rate of our corporation, the fortune 500 their tax rate would stay at four points. 9%, but our small business Accurate would would jump almost double 8%. It's crazy date. By the way does that did you say it was $20 million, has been pouring into the prop to await the pro prop to await funds. Yeah, They're 20 over over over 20 million Stanford Children based headquartered in Portland, Oregon. I don't necessarily look at Portland as the best place for policy for the state of Arizona. A national teacher's union has put in many millions of dollars, so individual Arizona and they put in like 0.77%. In support of crop to it. So this idea that this is some sort of homegrown effort is completely false. And by the way, there's also this notion that Arizona has invested in case for 12. Is completely falls as well. No state has Dunmore increased future pay over the last five years in Arizona appropriately, and we support it at the Arizona camper. We've increased teacher salaries by 20% over three years. We're putting about a billion dollars Maurin for classrooms. Every year in arcade for 12 system, and we're doing it. Why? Because we had a very strong economy. You you put an end to that It's going to hurt not just our state's economy. It's going For our ability to make those investments into our case for 12 system in the future, which is the major part about prompt to wait. It just doesn't work prop to await. It does more harm than good because of the harm it puts on small business owners and glad hammers with us. He's the president, CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and, you know, small businesses very well. You've been doing this for 14 years, you've seen our economy. Just become so so effective for businesses that businesses are moving here from all over the place, But I know that there's a million people at least prick over eight million people in the state work for small businesses, Glenn and if you double that impact There's going to be job losses specifically, so business owners compay the taxes. Exactly. So the fact is 50% of the of the filer Ted by this or small businesses representing 58%, the private sector workforce, But what's also important to stay here. Is that we're.

Mayor. Clarke admitted in a television interview that she and the City Council bent their need to the violent, screaming mob inside the City Council chambers and pointed to a national issue of de funding The police despite the fact that Norman Police Department is held in high regard in the state and broader region and has had for the leading leading the community policing programs in place as models. For other cities. The mayor, they say, also has radical ideas such as giving 16 year olds the right to vote turning Norman into a sanctuary city and more, and we'll see where this leads in terms of Ah recall effort for the mayor of Norman, But that was unite Norman making those claims earlier today news radio 1000 Katie Okay, Paul is in Oklahoma City High.

I noticed that the Medicare expansion past In an offseason vote and seeing you know, for the last 12 years or however many years we've been voting on, it overwhelmingly gets turned down, so they put it on an off season vote. The vast majority of people who showed up and voted in person voted yes, vast majority of mail and Valence voted are the vast majority of people who voted in person voted no to Medicare expansion. Once again Once again, the absentee and mail in ballots outnumbered those who voted in person, and I know why that is. And you know why that is on a recall or And Bob Bob, You're dying on me there. I don't know what's going on with your cell phone, but I think I know where you're going with this. It's that it was the same way. The fifth Congressional District race was determined to years ago. And that is no, not more people are voting, absentee or voting early. It's that there are more activists out there canvassing these districts and getting people to vote absentee and to vote early through mail in ballots. And Ah, good bit of it is legal. Some of it isn't And I think they're very skillful and how they avoid the illegalities. You can't tell people how to vote. You can encourage them to get on a ballot. You can offer to mail it Forum. You can notarize it for him. If you are a notary But you can't tell me that these same people canvassing these districts are not also saying, Oh, and by the way, I'm right there. You don't want him to take your Medicare away. Do you? All the lava lava? Well, then they don't explain that The state has to come up with that money.

We will explain here in about five or six minutes right now, though. Obviously covert 19 has been a topic the last several months, and it's still is now as we try to figure out what to do with schools as we see certain states struggle with this, like Florida. Jonas on the phone right now. We're pleased to be talking with Dr Jerome Adams. He is the U. S surgeon General on the first Midwest Bank hotline. Hello, Dr Adams and great to be talking with you today. I wish I was out there actually in person because it's pretty hot out here in Washington when I'm going to that weather report. Ah, High of 82. That sounds pretty good. You're always welcome. Dr Adams. Alright, So let's talk about this a little bit. Where Where does your concern lie? Right now? When it comes to where we are as a nation handling this pandemic, well, great question and let me frame it for you. In the beginning of February, March April, we were really worried about New York, New Jersey The those centers and we were particularly worried about older people. People in nursing homes were disproportionately hit, where we had a 40% mortality rate. We didn't know a lot about the virus, and we've talked many times about the fact that we didn't know about the degree of asymptomatic spread, which was why we weren't recommending masks. We didn't know that Davies would play out so differently in different populations in Milwaukee, right there in Wisconsin with one of the places where we first saw the data showing and how hard This virus impacting people of color. We're in a very different place. Now. Now we don't have the major single place like New York City like we did earlier, but we're seeing increases, particularly in the 1000 Southwest. Florida, Texas, Arizona in California makeup over 50% of the new cases and we're Haing. Those cases starts to spread further north and we're concerned and when you asked where we are, I think we're in a better place than what we were in February and in March. You look a testing. We passed 50 million testing when you look at treatments like room disappear and steroids, But we're also in a place where people are having trouble staying vigilant. They're having trouble. Understanding that that this virus doesn't care about state lines. This virus will attack you wherever you are. And it's why we need to do simple things like wearing face coverings, washing her hands and watching our distant staying at least six feet apart from other than avoiding crowded spaces, And if we do that, we could turn this thing around. Dr Adams. We're seeing pockets of the U. S. They're seeing more of a resurgence of the Corona virus. Are we doing enough testing when it comes to that? Do you think if we did more testing, we could kind of get the asymptomatic people to stay home and lessen the spread. Well, two different questions there and quickly. Are we doing enough testing? No, We need to continue to do more testing and make it available and help people understand who needs testing. Who doesn't? It's also true that just a few months ago, the experts pretty much agreed. If we could get toe for five million tests for week, we'd be in good shape. Well, guess what? We're for five million tests for week. We're averaging about 800,000 per day, and it's not enough. It's not enough right now, because we've got runaway demand. We've got cases going out of control and so to some extent, there will never be enough testing. If we don't get people to do the simple things that we know where necessary and turn this around, and I think it's important for people to know that when you look at a place like Italy Just a few months ago. They were one of the worst places in the world. They got tourism open and running again. They got soccer games going on. They're sending their kids back to school. They did it with less testing than what we had for capita there doing it with less resources without a vaccine, But they really doubled down on those basic public health measures to www wash your hands..

"So final minute or so we'll focus on on twenty twenty what candidate on the democratic side has the farthest go, you think to earn the support of teachers unions you specifically asked about Cory Booker why? So Cory Booker is someone who has been on the education reform side of the the pendulum or scale, I guess on on the democratic side on the other side of the teachers unions his his record as mayor of Newark, pushing some education reforms he supports school choice. You actually worked closely with education now education secretary, Betsy DeVos when she was working on school choice issues as a as a private citizen. That you heard Randi implies that there's would-be concerns for for teachers unions while he has this mainly those problems with teachers unions. I think. From the rest of the field is really wide open. I don't know that there's a favorite candidate of teachers unions right now, it's huge field. So it's it's hard to. We'll have to see what happens. Yeah. I again, I agree with everything. Michael just said. Teachers unions are huge factor and democratic primaries they come with. I mean, the two national teachers unions AFC and the national Education Association. They have more than five million members. There were huge. They can get out the vote. They are very they're going to be a very deciding factor in who makes it through here and the twenty twenty election and someone like Cory Booker. Poses a problem for them because of his background on education and school choice, even you know private school choice. So it will certainly be interesting to see I think the thing here to watch though is how the teachers unions evaluate candidate who could beat a President Trump versus a candidate who who's education agenda alliance with their own. And in our last thirty seconds. You mentioned war-chest it was about twelve million dollars that AFC spent in in two thousand eighteen do you think they'll match that exceed that what are your thoughts? If you had to guess today. I would say they'll probably exceed that. I think that's right. I think as you heard ready say following the supreme court decision and Janice. Unions are more political now than than they were before. I think when you have a wide open democratic primary field those coveted endorsements. Mean a lot. But from the teachers unions, I think you'll see them go go pretty big the cycle. But we'll have to end up there. We'll see what happens. Lauren camera and Michael strafford.
