"Pandemic, the state has failed to provide a free and equal education to all students. Violating the state constitution and discriminating against black, Latino and other low income families. And these kids have been left behind. During the months of distance learning. We talked about that so often how difficult it was for poor soc on the poor, lower socioeconomic scale for kids, and if we look at our society is black, Latino minority students that are most represented in that demographic. And so because the kids were lacking access to digital tools badly needed academic and social emotional support. This constitution has been discriminated against Which mandates fair and equal access to education across the board, and the students have been harmed by the school's failure to meet those required minimal minimum in structural needs. And, uh, it's uh Filed against everybody. The State Department of Education State superintendent of instruction and here who is the plaintiff in this place, she represents virtually everybody. She has three elementary school kids in Oakland Unified School District, one of the poor districts. And said that her twins in the second grade received live instruction from a teacher twice. When the school's closed since the school's closed mid barge to the end of the school year, they weren't assigned packets or other materials to make up for lost time. The teacher totally dropped the ball, according to a lawsuit they parents said when she finally reached the teacher after repeated phone calls messages The teacher said, because some students weren't able to get online for remote learning. She had canceled classes for all students. So I guess the argument is no. We're not unfair to students of the lower special socio economic levels, I guess were unfair to everybody don't argue discrimination when we're screwing everybody on the same level, I guess is the defense here. And it zit going toe work. Well, I think what's going to happen is that the court is gonna look at under the circumstances of the pandemic. Did the school make reasonable attempts to deal with the issues in the challenges And you? A plaintiff can't argue. Look, you didn't do what should have been done. For example, that's like suing hospitals and counties because the ICU beds I have simply all been used up. You should have known that all the beds would have been used up. Therefore, you didn't make accommodations to buy new ones and to train new people to deal with the pandemic. I mean, that's basically the argument that's being made here to a lesser extent. And so the court's gonna look at what the school actually did what the district with the state actually did. And if reasonable attempts were made to be fair to give access. I don't think the planets are going anywhere. I mean, we're all suffering. All the kids are suffering. All right. It's just that simple and poor kids suffer more. Heads. That's just the way it is. And you can't argue that kids who are treated the same in school and therefore are not treated the same with online learning because they don't have broadband at home because they don't have computers. Is it the duty of the school the state to provide broadband and to provide computers that is that reasonable? Maybe a long term. It is Should happen. That pandemic happened in March by April. We should have had broadband. You should have called my carrier he should have paid for. It made arrangements for the state to enter into a contract to buy us computers. Oh, by the way, you should have done that in two weeks. See that's the problem, All right? I am Mike. Let's start with you. Hi, Mike. Welcome to handle on the law. Hi. Thanks for taking my call.

But now it's covered 19 cases are on the rise again, and many Californians find themselves unemployed and without health coverage. The future of the Affordable care act is looking on certain. Against late Friday night, a federal judge in Texas ruled the law unconstitutional in 20 in the group of Republican attorneys general mounted a lawsuit challenging the affordable care act legality.

She spends hours on video calls trying to walk them through navigating the Internet for the first time. Even where to position their cursors over the icons on the screen. This one? No, this one is. I know that one. Sometimes I film I had like a bacon. It's not just parents, teachers are relying on her more than ever. Maria is in very high demand, and she's working regularly at more than 40 schools. Nate Johnston is a villain's boss and runs the district's refugee and newcomer program, he says teaching through computer screens makes it much harder to get around language barriers. Teachers can't Ally on visual cues as much or use other students to help interpret like they used to, So they call a glad and even when Mom parents speak some Spanish, Johnston says, it can be hard to earn their trust by phone. And then Maria starts talking to them, and everything is all of a sudden fluid and familiar and clearly just much more comfortable. The job has become so important. The district is hiring another full time interpreter, and one school hired its own interpreter over the summer. It's a role that's about more than just helping families and teachers understand one another. Watching a glad work has helped six grader Yo Scotty see the value in his native language, even if he's having a hard time in his English class is right now I'm learning less.

"Bar too low by deciding that any interaction even a single text between a parent and a teacher counts as participation for a given day. One of my favorite conversations with parents with high school students, I would ask them, you know, like, what's it like in your household? Invariably They were saying, My child doesn't wake up until noon. Paolo Di Maria is the superintendent of public instruction for the state of Ohio. And he says right now school should be as flexible and understanding as possible if they're participating in engaging that counts, and that's important. Misha Yasha runs attendance for the Oakland Unified School District in California. In his district. It's a little more cut and dried teachers must take attendance similar to in person. They must take attendance every day for every period that's on their schedule. But he says attendance is ultimately an indicator of the need to remove barriers to learning. Like raising money in the community to get kids, the laptops and WiFi they need. We need to make sure that we are not losing any kids in any matter of fashion. This supportive approach is part of what heady chain calls a paradigm shift. The first thing is the teacher's creating a welcoming, engaging climate. Where could feel noticed human level when they were being punitive is just not the way to get students to engage, says chain. Especially when you can't compel them to physically attend school can hear and see that just because you showed up to the virtual class on the computer that you will learn what she says.

"The high temperature in San Francisco today. Should reach 67 degrees. It's 906 Good morning. Welcome to Forum. I mean, a Kim San Jose's alum, Rock union and East Side you in high school district's announced this week that most of their schools will continue online. Learning this fall. Brentwood and Oakley Union school districts in the East Bay announce something similar, while Marines, health officials are guiding schools toward a full re opening with in person instruction. In this opening half hour. We learned what districts are grappling with as they prepare to start the school year during a pandemic, and we're joined by Diana Lambert, Senior education reporter for Ed Source Welcome Thank you for having me. So you spoke with several school superintendents in your story that dropped early this morning about the hurdles that school officials air facing as they plan to reopen schools, so remind us all the things that they're dealing with. Well. Superintendents are trying to do something that has never been done before. Reopen schools in a pandemic, and they have to navigate health and safety protocols, along with concerns of parents and teachers and still keep their district's open. The district's with tight budgets and so is every Yes so go right ahead, please. As you say. This includes everything from making sure you have enough protective equipment, a mass etcetera first instant teachers and ensuring social distancing on school buses, which sometimes give me 10 to 12. Children on the bus. And we're learning that today. Oakland Unified School District is supposed to release their plan to reopen campuses. Do you have any sense what they will do well, the district is considering allowing families to choose distance learning for the entire semester, or a combination of distance in person learning, which is called hybrid instruction. And is that something that most districts will likely go with? Based on your research? Ah, lot of district's most districts are going for hybrid instruction this school year, which means students are in class either half the week and doing distance learning half the week or they're in class say in the morning and another group comes in in the afternoon. And that really is the most popular version right now, although almost every district is also including some form of justice, learning on ly for parents who are concerned to have their Children back in school. So then why is that I an elaborate Why is that model the most popular as you say, because it allows for social distancing classrooms. Instead, 30 kids in a class, you might have 15 So, so that is why that's the most populous away to social distance and still get all the kids sometime in school. Is it also in response to surveys that district are doing? Does it seem like parents that this is what families want? That's hard to know. It seems that parents are split. A lot of parents want to go back five days. They want their kids in school full time in some districts are actually doing that more than I thought. I'm starting to see more and more going to five days. So that is the most popular among parents, I think, And then there was another group of parents who don't want their kids in school at all. And so just trying to get it always different needs. We'll let me put that out to our listeners. Are you a parent of a school aged child? Do you work in a various school district? How are you thinking about these issues that China Lambert is laying out that superintendents are grappling with with regards to reopening. And what are your questions about how school officials air handling decisions around re opening? You could give us a call at 8667336786 Again 8667336786 This is 1/2 hour segment, so the time to call is now with your questions. You can also be just on Twitter or Facebook. A cake, Sweetie Forum or you can email us at Forum. Dot or GE now Diana Lambert. You spoke with the superintendent at Sebastopol Union elementary schools. This's in Sonoma County, of course, and they are very small school district, right? They are there only two schools. And so what are small districts like some basketball union dealing with It's even more difficult for District's like that, because they are they have no HR departments. They're they're They're very smallest. They may have 45 people planning the whole entire school re opening. And they also go ahead in terms of funding related to this Funding. I mean, it just depends on the school district. I don't know that they're in any worse straits than ah, Large school district everyone strapped right now, But I think their problem is Justin staffing and also in the fact that they're often enroll communities so they need bussing. And one school district. They said 40% of their students are bused in now with, you have to only get 12 kids in a bus. That's a real problem. So in some districts, they're actually telling parents just you're going to have to drive your kids to school. Wow and also in rural districts. I'm not so sure if it's the situation so much for Sebastian Paul Union, but they're also tends to be more difficulty with accessing consistent. You know why WiFi The digital divide is Is very wide. Absolutely. I spoke. I actually did this story last week about small school district, And that is the biggest problem that they just do not have access often to Internet connectivity. And so they are have a real problem with distance learning, especially since now there's going to be some requirements around distance, learning that we require them to have a teacher actually do life instruction online. In one of the things that I found interesting, especially in your in your article related to Palo Alto was that even as schools come out with plans or begin to finalize plans, they're also finding that they have to revise them. Can you talk about how things have played out so far in Palo Alto? Well, Palo Alto has actually revised their plan A couple of times they received pushback from teachers and parents when they proposed the elementary school students come to school every day, five days a week. And middle and high school students do a hybrid model where they come in part of the week and stay out. And so now they have changed it two times. And the latest proposal which just was night for last was have elementary school come. Students come to school. Half of the week and work from home half the weekend now on secondary school students will go entirely online. And what that makes me think about is how much these decisions even as their finalized as school start to reopen next month, coming up so quickly that things could change based on say, growing numbers of infections, right? I mean, Even all of these best laid plans of say you thought it all through could change as a result of this virus. I think that some districts we're looking at making multiple plans, depending on the rate of viral infections. I have a district your Eureka unified.

How much of this pressure is being felt by these districts? I think they're getting pressure from all sides. Definitely the social emotional health of the students is foremost in their minds. But then we also have parents and teachers who are concerned about having that many people in a small space for a long period of time. So they're getting pulled in every direction. My people without with different concerns, and let me bring Beth from Redwood Shores in Hi, Beth. Hi. Good morning. Thanks for taking my call. This is a very timely conversation. What I was wondering is, what are the school board's thinking for immuno compromised parents or relatives at home that maybe living with the student? What precautions are they taking? To prevent transmission and the child possibly bringing home something to to the parent or close relative that lives at home. They think, you know, compromise parents specifically. Yeah.

"To take captains from the teacher's union met to prepare for the strike today. Officials from the teacher's union called the Oakland Education Association spoke out about why the teachers are taking this action. Nick, Alexandra reports after eighteen months of fruitless negotiations over teacher pay and class sizes between the Oakland Education Association and the city's unified school district. Teachers are preparing to strike the president of the Oakland Education Association. Keith Brown says the unions bargaining committee is waiting for a proposal from the Oakland unified school district. But if nothing can be agreed Brown says the union is prepared to take this action in the name of quality education for students in Oakland. We stand together with the commute. Unity, and we are willing to fight for the schools that Oakland students deserve. And that fight will began this Thursday. Educators in Oakland are the lowest paid teachers in other media county. The teacher's union is demanding a twelve percent pay rise with the Oakland unified school district is offering five percent. The teacher's union says with the high cost of living the Oakland unified school district currently loses twenty two percent of teachers every year brand caused this crisis of teacher retention, but says the strike is about much more than higher salaries for teachers we need to make sure that our students have smaller class size a learning environment where they can succeed and our students need to have counselors need to have nurses. We need to have healthy schools. We need true investments to dramatically change public education in Oakland. If a strike cannot be averted approximately thirty seven thousand Oakland students will be affected. Ishmael Dora's is a special education teacher in Oakland. And the first vice president of the Oakland Education Association. He says the district is hemorrhaging experienced teachers because of low pay in an overinvestment and charter schools, we lose twenty two percent of our teachers every year half of our special education. Teachers half are first year teachers that means the other in their entered credential. That means new or they're an emergency credential. That means they never been in a classroom before or have any experience, and there are some of the most vulnerable children. We need to do something now to maintain and to keep teachers in Oakland, and the agenda that is backed by the billionaires that our district is pushing has caused this to happen.

"This is forum. I'm Michael Krasny. We're talking about the fact that Oakland teachers are set to strikers in ninety five percent vote and ninety five percent of the teachers are ready to go and are mobilizing Johnson sake. With us direct communications for the Oakland unified school district and deer just Niner. Here in studio is treasury the Oakland Education Association, and if you're on the line hang on we want to hear what you have to say. But let's go first to Michael curse who is former president of the California state board of education, professor emeritus of education at Stanford university's graduate school of education and longtime friend is a foreign program and Michael curse. Good to have you with us. Welcome. Thank you for having me. I guess the place to begin with you is just a little historical perspective. If we could the state is already bailed out the Oakland unified school district. What can the state do now or which state well estate is bailed Oakland out twice into two thousand three to two thousand nine when Jerry Brown was governor at the started at the state. Provided a hundred million dollars alone the largest in state history. My information is at forty million dollars is still left on that loan. And I don't know how that plays into this picture at this point. The state is also revamped its finance formula to pour money into district's like Oakland that have high percentages of low income children and children with special needs. That money has however been affected by the declining enrolling in Oakland and the charter school losses. So they lose people's and therefore they lose state payments for each pupil. But the latest encounter is really significant because the state provided about thirty five million dollars in two thousand eighteen budget back in two thousand nineteen and they will pay this money out if Oakland. Meets mandated state bench benchmarks to get the state money by cutting about thirty million dollars initially, which is the figure used here today. And the state has final say about whether Oakland is meeting these mandates and the payments from the state they allowed Oakland are contingent on them making these cuts, and I think the bottom line here is that the state is trying to help Oakland. But it is really has drawn the line and saying and here is the bottom line. If you don't do this. The state will take over the district as it did in two thousand three you up to the state appointed trustee all powers of the Oakland school board and the Oakland community are abrogated to this state trustee who is literally a dictator about cuts Oakland has been through this before in two thousand. Three two thousand nine era. So I think that it's there's a huge player out there. The state that has to has to be taken into account at the bottom of this state responsibility to see that children are educated and local districts can be overridden and the state looked carefully at the Alameda County. Civil grand jury's findings that the local Oakland district had lost control of its spending said the grand jury there were system-wide fiscal failures excessive hiring and so on. So Oakland's on a very short leash from a state perspective. That's an appropriate way to describe it. I wonder if you'd say something though about how pensions and pension payouts. Figure into the salt picture fiscally. Well, the districts are responsible for pension, payments and healthcare payments. Also, the pension is a state system, and that was payments have to go up because of the pension benefits are not fully funded by the state, and Oakland is like every other district in a state is being squeezed by that and then the health benefits to retirees so down in Los Angeles. Thirty seven percent of LA's budget is paid out the people who no longer work for the school district. They are retired and receiving pensions or they are on a health and welfare a health program that they negotiated. So yes, this is another factor. And so it's a terribly difficult situation at the bottom of this power is with the local school board. Not with the administrators. They're the ones that have to make these cuts. They're elected and open and the state is watching. Being very closely. And you know, you go look at this from the standpoint of state tax payers. Why should we be paying money into Oakland? If they're not getting their act together. Michael cursed is good to have you aboard here. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you, Michael curse. Former president of California state board of education and professor emeritus of education at Stanford graduate school of education. A listener says I worked for the Oakland unified school district for one year and experienced incredible mismanagement and lack of classroom support for very high needs students. I left for another district with the increase in property values and subsequently increased tax revenue. How can the district claim there is a drop in funding? It's time to audit. Oh, U S and make transparent. How all funds are.
