"Get going on this eight o'clock hour. W L. Larry O'Connor here coming up in 15 minutes at 8:15 A.m. Carney for the Washington Examiner has been keeping an eye on Montgomery County politics, especially on 19 protocols and your schools at 8 35 Dr Ben Carson. He's going to be part of a rally out in Loudon County. This evening. We'll check in with the former HUD secretary at 8 35. Amber Athe is keeping his company all morning long from the spectator Amber. It's always good to have you in the morning. Thanks for being here. Thanks. It's good to be here. Joining us right now is Rory Cooper. I like to call him sort of an accidental activist. He's just a a guy trying to raise his kids over the last couple of years. Three Fairfax County Elementary school students In the Cooper household and then the pandemic kid, and he got to see exactly what Fairfax County schools does with his tax dollars and the decisions they make with regard to these government run schools. And now there's no stopping Rory Cooper. He joins us now, Mr Cooper. Thanks for being here. Always good to talk to you, sir. Hey, Good morning, Larry. This report was absolutely stunning. We addressed it yesterday. And I know you've got a lot to say about it to the facts that Fairfax County teachers are getting a $32.7 million bonus for their quote extraordinary work during the pandemic. This, of course, is federal covid relief dollars, and it's just getting handed over to the government run school system. Uh, that's got to be infuriating as a parent who didn't really see a lot of extraordinary work coming out of these schools this last year. Yeah, well, Larry, it's a problem that has been going on for a year now in regards to the federal relief or covid. You know. Last year tens of 2020 tens of billions of dollars were set aside for covid mitigation in K 12 schools. Most of it remained on the shelf unspent because live districts didn't have any way to spend it. They said it was for ventilation Balad districts that were closed. Actually some of the ones that had the most modern ventilation systems. In January when President Biden was inaugurated. We heard from the unions and the Democrats again. Schools couldn't open unless more money was passed, despite all the money sitting on the shelf. Well. The American taxpayer gave it to them again and again. There is nothing for them to spend it on. And so now the teachers are and the unions are giving it to themselves. What about the parents who spent untold amount of money trying to find proctors or tutors or laptops or gear to get their kids through the school year in their home? Or the moms who had to quit their jobs. Women leaving the workforce predominantly in order to care and educate their Children at home. They're not getting a bonus. So what I would like to see is that the Children and the parents in these communities start to be seen as first rather than second class when it comes to the education. Yeah, That's a great point. And I think there's no question that there were teachers who went above and beyond during the pandemic, But I mean, this really is an indictment of the teachers unions, which were pushing for months and moving the goalposts again and again to try to keep schools shut down and then rewarding teachers for doing ostensibly Less work at this point. What? What can you What can parents do to fight back against this kind of self dealing? That's going on. Yeah, And you're exactly right. There are a lot of teachers who did go above and beyond. Just in our own home. I got to see my child's kindergarten teacher who did the best under awful circumstances. Made kindergarten as good as it could be, um, with the way that Fairfax had set it up. But also we got to the summer and a lot of this money was supposed to be for learning loss and funding summer school programs that any kid could go to and those programs were cancelled. Because the unions decided not to show up. And so the learning loss. Uh That was the learning loss. Mitigation I was supposed to occur, did not. And so we have to look at this holistically and realized that her kids suffered tremendously over the years and the only people that the system seems to be paying attention to Are the employees rather than the students, which is who are supposed to be the beneficiaries how to keep fighting for this? I've been encouraging parents for the last year. This is your time to get involved. That doesn't mean going and screaming at a school board meeting that means going and finding somebody who will run for the school board. That means going in organizing your community in order for them to understand these issues, making sure that other parents know how they can get politically involved with Either the Fairfax County Parents Association or one local to them, because this is not going to stop parents have seen What is going on in their schools with a microscope and they're now involved and we now need to make changes in order to for this to be more balance towards the kids needs. That said. We're not entirely against going to a school board meeting and screaming as well. It actually does make an impact to Rory Cooper's our guests out of Fairfax County schools. And, uh, you know, we're seeing all of these announcement. I love all the mainstream media reporters were saying, Get ready for a major announcement from President Biden tomorrow. So tomorrow is September. 9th. This major announcement apparently includes Covid protocols as Children Go back to school, Rory Cooper. What am I missing? It's September 8th Today. Most kids have been back to school for several weeks now..

"The movies to me were kind of the equivalent of nine exactly fan fiction but fan tribute. Because i was so entrenched in the books it was neat to see other people. Embodying embodying these roles but it's kind of like Watching a rocky horror shadow klay. It's very to me. It felt like tribute but i still see the characters the way that i envision them and the music is nice. But it's not to me. What necessarily declines harry potter. Oh i gotta ask you. Because i know i know more about the trivial than i know about the actual stuff. Didn't jk rollings say that Sleep when she envisioned him and she was. Go ahead you said. I don't think that she's confirmed or denied any soda. Every time we say safe. I i don't think she's confirmed or denied that she had alan rickman in mind but I think it's pretty clear that she wrote that role with him in mind and he was exactly what i imagined. He was perfect perfect. So matt hans. Gruber is very integral to these films. I hear that would that would be even more impressive. If find seen die hard as well come from the camera at me. Christmas special okay. Let's just talk real quick. We why is he on the show. I don't know alive. you know. This is an argument. Which i know matthew and i will have that diehard is a christmas movie very very yeah okay well. We'll we'll pull back to harry potter. I remember i was. Because i was so late to the game in reading the books i got through them and then i thought okay. Now wanna watch these movies. And i was so excited to see how they would make these worlds. Come come to life. And i remember when i got to the third or the fourth movie and i was so disappointed because they left so much out of that book and i won't go into the details. What you say. That was a big buckles. The big he was know dr. A fourth book was the biggest of them today and she is really ramping. It up yeah. It was alfonzo. Skowron cower on cuaron koruna. Thank you i. I still pictured the last name. I'm sorry. I don't think he did adjust this at all. I don't think he did that movie. I think it was really which was a no the fourth one o. Eill from around a third one okay. Then that's my mistake. Whoever did the fourth one. I don't think they did the justice but to your point robin. It's it's not supposed to. It can't ever get to that to that level simply because there's so much detail in these books in these characters you have to pick and choose distill the information into something that will fit into a movie length fulfill the essence of the story accurately. And i think i think they do that. Well in all the books. There's there's always something missing from the box. And there's she dato and so von humanness in her descriptions that there's only so much that can translate. I feel like When when i made ben binge watch them with me. I would frequently pause it and fill in the little details the little anecdotes. That would be peppered in there. Because i feel like you. You don't fully appreciate it unless you you have that. Of course you have to read it to really get it. I learned the rich tapestry and many many of my theories about s- nape there are hidden. Words is one of them dumbledore. No i was going to get a word that that might be said to many times because all be on the floor by the end of this i was. I was at kings island. Remember i told you it kings island. No i i was at kings island. I remember i had told you that. The seventh book had not been released yet. We went to kings island that some weekend in the book had been released. And i told myself not looking at any spoilers. Because we're going to have our weekend. And then i'm going to come back and i have the book i'm just gonna start reading it and i'm in line at the beasts if you're familiar in the ohio kentucky area. There's this famous roller coaster. It's like one of the world's fastest. Wooden roller coasters called the beast and in line. And i'm watching people come off and there's a guy who has this shirt and it said page six hundred forty two dumbledore dies. Ooh an awful. Didn't anonymous get a preview copy and drive around major cities reading out the window. Yelling out the i remember looking at the shirt and i thought why. Why would you do that. And i thought no joke. It's joke but sure enough. You know that was a that was the sixth. wasn't it. yes it was robin yes. It was the six book. So yeah. But i hadn't read it regardless and i saw this guy walking and it just ruined it for me. I reminded his wearing a major spoiler on his t shirt in public disarming. Dude if you're listening and this is you and you know that was a horrible thing. You did so literally. When i got the sixth book i went into a cave for about three days. And read the entire thing when i emerged. My mom was really concerned like about a week passes and she says are you okay. You seem depressed like jam fine. She's like. Did you. Just finish reading harry potter. Like y'all whatev- it. She said what's killing probably like sixteen. Maybe yeah you know moody teenage girl. But i guess she had seen a spoiler. She knew i needed some moral support. I'm gonna guess that your mother belonged to the california potter parents association. Were they all. These adult warnings amongst each other. I'm gonna guess. Because i know your mom and that is totally something she would pass. I was legitimately depressed for about a month. After i finished reading that book It was it was moving toward numbers reader. Like really immerse yourself in the story. I'm like that with story especially long stories like that even even the lord of the rings things you know these big long saga stories revered so immersed in it you do like come back out but you have to kind of re associate yourself to reality and and what's going on because i feel that way because i'm in a very immersive reader especially if i'm it's a story like that we're i've been known not fully in a cave but definitely the world is left out because i am no longer present. I am in the book and it any do kinda have to reactivate yourself to.

"Remember that were chosen, and I don't think that that's the end all be all. I think that once those recall position petitions are filed, they're not opposed. Maybe, uh, starting some new ones. Um, but because all of us involved in all of these little ad hoc groups are just parent volunteers with lives and jobs and Children. Um, they had to keep it a little bit smaller to begin with. So I think that's why they isolated three people to begin with. And then you know, they may expand from there. And do you know the status of the recall effort as of this afternoon? I know that they are working. Actively still recall it. I mean, excuse me, but, uh, gathering signatures gathering signatures, So that's a big part gathering signatures and then Going through and verifying every single signature that they had to make Sure it is, You know, Legit. It is a legal signature is a resident within the right district within Fairfax County, a registered voter all that good stuff, So they're being very careful. Um and doing it all in, you know, volunteer hours, so outside of their regular lives outside of their regular job.

"I'm wondering, particularly, I mean gosh, 11 12, you just hitting puberty. What was it like to go through that, you know, you know, in a dormitory room with other girls and this lack of pastoral care as you've described it and being so far away. From your parents. I'm telling you, Would you have reflections on that particular experience? I think this is where the great thing about all the girls being together came into play. Lack of pastoral care. The indifference to often downright cruelty of mistresses who were presided over us like guards meant that we only had each other to turn to So we did, and we became each other's second family. And even though I was one of the slow learners it we want to become part of that family tonight. How to you know, as we moved into purity we were there for each other week. Helped each other. We looked out for each other. We gave each other advice on being together in these huge dorms meant we had no privacy whatsoever. So it's sort of natural being in puberty together. Didn't seem strange and we we also relied on Dolly. I don't remember Dolly magazine. I don't know if it still exists, You know, having a couple of years ago, but now I remember it well. Lots of tips are we devour Dolly and with the day bugs and bring Dolly in forest with smiling to the boarding house and read them And then some of the girls had older sisters that always helped us, Juliet said. To have an old have older sisters who paved the way made a big difference. If you were the first your child there on day we just we scavenged tips and ideas from everywhere and Had each other as much support as we could. My guests are nightlife, a tenure Haislip, who's the author of a memoir called Beyond Alice and Louise Martin, who's the Queensland president of the isolated Children's Parents Association, that 10 Year? Do you want to ask me more about your mom? Because you spoke to us about The trauma that she felt when she had to send you guys away, But she really wanted to make a change based on that. Didn't she tell us about what she did? He drive her grief into fury and then action on Dr Really think it was triggered by the day the headmistress refused to take her phone call, and she thought, what kind of a world is this? So she poured her energy into the isolated Children's and Parents Association off which Louise is the queen's and president and back then? It was fledgling. This is nearly 70. So she became the inaugural president off the inaugural Northern Territory Association, and she worked with all the territory women to start. I'm getting action going at a territory level and then a federal level with the other groups to improve opportunities for Children. So that light, Louise pointed out boarding through today's a very different experience. But she personalized that by Doing her between sure that Children didn't have to go if they go away If they didn't want to, that there was a choice and she lobbied to turn a hostel in our springs into what has become today a first class day and boarding school courts and Phillips and she was thean Orgel present off that she hired Ah, headmaster from Victoria, who was young and enthusiastic, and they lobbied. They got money from federal and state governments, and they developed these boarding school, and she personally oversaw the designing off the dormitories so that there would be big windows that looked out onto the Rangers because she knew it wasn't just the family lost that traumatized Bush kids going away. It was a loss of their connection to land. We were so connected to the land to the sky to the space, and she want to make sure even if they're in boarding school in Alice Springs, they were still connected to that. So that became her life's mission, and she was awarded an order of Australia for it and she still she was 23 years. The president's and Phillips she's now a life governor. On to this day as passionate as ever about improving the rots off Bush kids who have to go away or and providing choices so they don't have to if they if the parents want to keep them likely. Well, good on your Montana Now. I'm Louise. I understand that you've now got twin girls and they've done prepping you wanted the child will school of distance and then I've actually ended up in the same boarding school that you went to tell us about how you feel about you know this full circle, turning It's um uh, Susan. It's sort of a bit ironic in a way, because, uh, I just couldn't even for a long time. I couldn't even bear the thought of going back to Stewart home. Blessed just the fact that I had been there, but when it came to, you know, selecting a school for my girls, which Is a long, long, long time later, um somebody wait around and visited a few. When we went up to Stuart home. I went with an open mind and it was just the perfect school for those kids. Beautiful open spaces. All those things that I couldn't see. Um, save for myself in my day, and they were very comfortable and I wanted to go there. And having great experience and father Wild Day Girls in Queensland also called day bugs, So I think it might be a national things. You know, I think I had an SMS from somebody just about every state now saying Day Bugs Day Bugs Day bugs dough, But someone said they think it's an English expression on one of my text, it says. I'm sure it was used in the classic boarding school stories I used to raise a child on which led me to the misguided belief that boarding school would be fun. I ended up there. And it wasn't says this particular text. So what do you remember about you know, you remember vividly that first day that you were left to boarding school and there you are kind of catching the pillow. What was it like the moment that you left your twin girls there? Oh, man, I had to drive 900 kilometers time having dropped those kids off and it was a very long drive home. And when you have twins and only twins, and you've lived your life with the school bus routine, which is what they did. After prepping you one I went. We moved. And we went Tomo. There was a school bus going to the air like a school close by. So we did that. So the school bus run very regular looking you clock all day packing lunches. Getting kids out of bed. All of that sort of thing that you know most moms do, but that 900 kilometer drive home. To an empty house and not knowing what I was going to do. Next with my day was a long, long, long, long day I it was that was really tough, and it took me. Some time to readjust my life to just not having that routine on empty house. You can imagine more rain from Bendigo Who's one of our regular callers here on nightlife..

"And mom are looked up and tears just started streaming down her face because of Bush kids, you go to bed at dark and the effort dawn and just the realization of how my life is going to change was overwhelming. Why is it that I mean, you grew up in the territory and a lot of territory. Kids end up at schools in Adelaide? Why is that? I think because it's always been this South Australian territory connection. The territory was once part of South Australia. So there's been this long, long, long term connection. A few went east a few went. I think a couple went to Charleville and a few to Brisbane, but Traditionally, Bush kids in Central Australia in particular went to Adelaide and again, that was just it. That's just what was done. Um, Andre, I'm sure Historically, the connection is the main reason for it. So take us through tenure. The trip down to Adelaide, you went to Methodist Ladies College or what? Your memories about arriving there on the on the first day. Just remember this pathway and this huge door and then This. Descent off for boating and claustrophobia, and I realized I was just surrounded by walls. Walls will stone walls concrete, no sky. I felt frantic. The first night I tried to look out a window to find the stars because in the bush that then the night skies almost littered with stars on I couldn't see any because we're in a city in the city lights and obliterated them. And was solved myself to sleep. It was like going to another planet, and it was the closest thing to going to prison that I could imagine, in my sort of young mind. Now the ways you were waved off to a boarding school called Stuart Harm in Brisbane. Tell us about your journey there and and how you felt when you got there in your parents left. My clearest memories. That occasion was May standing on the top of the stairs with my pillow, clutching my pillow and watching Mom and Dad, Drive away in the hold on this, So I went back in those days and being like the saddest kid in the world and thinking, what am I gonna do now? Alright, dreaded going away. I was such a homebody. And It stuck with me for a long time. It was just a Toughest. I ever I reckon I would imagine that the other kids who just arrived must have been feeling similarly. Did you have any conversations with them or you? We all kind of in your own little world. I think we were now on little world. Um there are the kids who? Why more socialized in our I went to boarding school. With sorry. Few social skills. I had only one or two friends ever when I was a child, and I didn't know how to make friends or even way to start. It was. It was just very lonely and trying to just Even begin to look after myself, let alone even looking outside myself. It was Really? Yeah. It was tough, little, um, the way it's what? Sorry. Tell you what about you? Did you remember what other kids who was starting at the same time? Is you the way they were reacting as you were left there on your first night? I think the ways is really summed it up. We were 12. We We just all stood there in our own little worlds with no comprehension really of the other kids and Like Lloyd's so few social skills. No, I do really how to make friends because these were different kinds off people to any other people I've ever met. A lot of the kids that came from country, South Australia, so Assed always pointed out. They they, too, were more socialized that being two schools so there might have been homesick. There might have been initially lost, but they didn't know how to be with other girls or other kids. But to be honest, I just I was that Loneliness inside that it's like you hold guts ripped out that there's nothing left your this hollow empty being floating. And it was like a death. And I just remember being in that space, unable to connect to anything or anyone and not even knowing how to tell you, he slipped and Louise Martin, my guests here on night life. We were just pause. For a moment. We've got some people who are joining us after their coverage off sport, and then we'll keep going. With these things. Conversation. This'll is not life with Suzanne Hill on ABC Radio. It is half person half past eight. If you're in the West, Welcome tonight. Life. If you're just joining us after your coverage of sport on this Friday night, we're talking about the experience of going to boarding school. I've got two guests with me Tell you Hey, slip. She's the author of a new memoir called Beyond Alice. I don't sell always Martin, who is the Queensland president of the isolated Children's Parents Association. They've just been telling me about their young days being of how to school of the air, really not meeting many kids outside of those who are in their own families, and those first nights that they spent in in boarding school. Well, you were bored on Did you get sent away to boarding school? Perhaps their apparent He said. Your kids away to boarding school. What do you remember about boarding school? What you remember about you know what it was like to be separated from your parents. What really is a very young age? I would love to hear your stories. So what do you think it did for? You did it? You know what skills did being a border Give you if you got a story that you'd like to share I'd love to hear from me 1 300. 800 tripled her and the SMS zero for 679 double to seven. Oh, two, Trent says in 1997. When I was 14 to 15 year old I was living in Sydney for a year with my extended family, My aunt and sent me to a special boarding school. At Rivendell in Concord in Sydney with the experience some of it was good. It was the wrong place from a BB in my home was 100 kilometers away from Sydney. So I'm trance. Obviously, I felt the experience of being so isolated from his family. Tenure I wanted. Have you talked to your parents about what That experience was like for them as they left you there, knowing that that must have been an overwhelming experience for you. Well, my mother lived the trauma and continues to live the trauma today off losing her Children to boarding school. I think for her, it was also like a death. She went on to do many great things as a result, which is, I think, while always his mother and my mother ended up spending much of their lives, loving for the education about the kids. But for her was it was overwhelming grief, but she had to try and be strong for my father. And I think for most Bushman that's so hard and stoic because they have to be to survive in the bush. They don't do emotions. And so they didn't share in his greatest loss. The greats, the joke, Woz, and this is a Bush joke. The greatest loss for fathers is that they lose half of this stop camp when the kids go to boarding school, So that was his big grade. Lost one of his right hand, little men. That was me. Um, but for him, I just remember the mantra Do not cry. Do not cry in front of your mother. Do not cry in front of your mother or you'll make it worse for her. So they have these completely different takes on it. But Mom's mom's grief which you know what we still talk about it today and so many other Bush kids ambush parents, specially Bush mothers, You know you're 12 and you send 1000 miles from your mother. It's it's not natural of. It might be very good for lots of reasons that itwas but The trauma of that separation is in many cases in capital of bulls. Eloise. What about the way that your family felt about you going off to boarding school? Did you also have conversations later about what that was like from their end? Um, yes. And no, My mom is, uh, you know. She would never let her emotions show whether she had a little cry behind the scenes or not. I'm not too sure, but it was just like we just had to get on with it. There was no other choice. There were no choices, So we just have tol make the best of it and get on with it. That was sort of our Family wife coping with things? Yep. Now we've got Julia on the fine who were also went to boarding school. Hello, Julius. Hello. Hi. Tell us a bit about your experiences. Where? Where did you go? Where did you come from? And where did you go? Oh, shit that I went for a bull in the butt of Harlem. Last. What was said, but older trying to have a fucking boring so Thanks. I guess. You know, Julia, I'm afraid your line is we really can't hear what you're saying. Maybe you being his better spot in a few minutes time, you might be able to give us a ring back because I could barely make head nor tail.

"This, along with extra parking lots were available and it went on. And then she says, the second call. Was a meeting of the Parents Association at my son's public school. I heard that teachers and administrators could choose to be tested for Cove it before the school year began, and that people entering the school could decide whether they wanted their temperature taken. I heard about classroom pods limited to nine students restriction made irrelevant. By the number of people moving freely from pot to pot. So just that was I thought that was You know whether it should be the the defining argument or not? I thought that was a very vivid portrayal of the difference between one professional environment and the one in the schools. Yeah. I mean, I think in fairness to the deal, we some of those things that she's mentioning that are happening on her TV show are happening in the schools as well. You know the pods. They say they're closing rooms that don't have enough or good enough ventilation. They say they're closing buildings that don't have good enough. Ventilation and there are walk throughs. The United Federation of Teachers has done a walkthrough. They have their own engineers, they say are doing that. But I would also mention that I can't say I'm familiar with Cynthia Nixon's newest show, but I would imagine that the budget is very different than the budgets that the school system here is a whole and individual schools are facing, and that's a big concern that teachers are raising. It's just it's not just you know what they consider poor planning, but it's that schools don't have and the school system doesn't have The capacity to make these improvements, but they need to think her new show is called virtual. No touch dating in the city. No, I'm kidding. Listeners, teachers, students, parents in New York City's public school system. Call in If you're a teacher, you've probably been back at school already. Getting the classrooms ready? I know you're supposed to report as of the day after Labor Day last week, So how do you feel about the state of your school? Help us report this story. How's your classroom house You're building. Does it feel different than it did last year? Do you have a sense of how it's all going to work or not work? Do you feel confident in the ventilation system, the cleaning schedule the seating arrangements. And anything else. 646435 70 to 86 46435 70 to 80 and parents. Are you? One of the families for more recently opted for remote on ly learning What changed your mind? And how are you feeling about school starting next week in person? Turmoil. In fact, for remote what are you worried about? What do you maybe excited about? That's okay. 2646435 70 to 86 46435 70 to 80 with WNBC in Gotham ists Jessica Gould and Sophia Chang. Sophie, you're still thinking about the families. I mean, maybe it's Maybe they have little to complain about in the sense that unlike the teachers, Every family may just choose and are out. Great. So three chancellor in the mayor's left. That choice is up to individual families. But I think that the complaints have been that Our family's fully educated on what the implications of their choice means now, the families who opted for full time remote learning your walked into that choice. For a few months because you cannot which to in person learning, whereas the opposite is true. If you had elected for in person blended, learning, you can switch the full time remote at any time. Makes sense, given the staffing issues that go hand in hand with blended learning. So I think that families who knows a week before school starts still have questions. Maybe this is the moment where they started thinking. Well, I'm not sure what's going to happen, maybe easier just to.

"6 10 W T V N 807. Now, finally, a Friday morning, it is August 28th another day closer to 2020 being in the books and given the year we've had. I mean, think about it. Murder Hornets. Hurricane Laura pandemic I mean it. Just go. No football. It just goes and goes and goes, so I don't think anybody's gonna be too sad. 1 2020. Is there a place you have to write? 2020 all the way out on your checks? Don't write. If you just write the 20. Somebody could hijack it. So it's crazy here anyway, I mentioned no football. We know tomorrow. Parents of Ohio State student athletes. Planning for a protest tomorrow at Ohio Stadium. They're going to be at the North Rotunda of the stadium, and basically, the Ask is for more transparency from the Big 10 conference on their decision to postpone the fall sports teams and I'm joined right now by sports director Matt McCoy and one Amanda Bab Amanda, president of the OS You Parents Association. Also step a step Mom of wide receiver Cameron Bob. Amanda. I appreciate I understand You're a little west of us this morning. Yeah, I'm in ST Louis, Missouri. So we're an hour behind where everybody is at seven. So you have to make a little extra effort to get up early for us to take the call. So thank you very much for that. No problem. So do you have any sense at this point how many people are likely to turn out for the protest tomorrow at Ohio Stadium? We don't really have any idea how many people will be turning out. I know how Buckeyes Love their football and everybody in Columbus, the Buckeye fans so there might be, you know upwards of Several 1000 people out there, and that's really what we're hoping for it to show the big 10 that you know, it's not just the parents that are upset. It's everybody that this is affected. Yeah, and how many parents do you expect? Actually, I think we're going to get quite a few parents. I've been looking on Twitter. I know. A lot of the board will be there. I saw G. Scott was flying and you know, obviously, Randy, wait will be there. You know, following a lot of the parents on Twitter? I could just see everybody putting the little pin in ST Columbus, Ohio. I think everybody's headed there. This we get more years to go. It makes sense to make our statement by showing up with the suit tomorrow. No doubt is so it's so when you talk about, you know, asking for transparency. I imagine they'll be people that will speak in that. What really is the push? What? What do you hope? The big 10 here's as a message as a result of this protest. Like you said, We're still asking for what happened with the falsies that everyone's aware that schedule was released on August 5th. And then by August, 11th theses has cancelled. So what really transpired in some of those medium. How did the president vote? What was the push canceled the fall football season until Bring or winter And why not? Wasn't even suggested Or was it even thought about delay the season instead? Like October or further back into September? So really, what? What happened? In the beginning to delay and then what is the plan for moving forward? We still don't have any idea how we're going to get our football season and there's talk of starting in January, but at the same time we want to plant they can to say. This is what the plan is moving forward so we can ensure that what happened in the fall doesn't happen in the winter spring, and additionally, some of the I mean, it's the football parents that are organizing this, But there's other sports that this has affected as well, including, you know women's soccer, volleyball baseball. Some of the parents have reached out to me as well. So there's not Seeking transparency for their players. Yeah, Amanda the other thing, too. That's interesting, And this is obviously in Columbus. So it's going to be a Ohio state protests. But just looking on Twitter of the amount of parents from other big 10 schools like the Nebraska parents are really well organized. But you see it everywhere. Even the school up North and Iowa have you been hearing from Parents Association's from a Other schools. And how upset are they as Ah, it seems like the entire league is upset with this decision. Yeah, I'm sure you saw. We have the big 10 united that we had a parents group that had representatives from almost all of the schools in the big 10 and leave the meeting. This entire week. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to really formulate a plan and just so that if the United Front Yeah, it's not just a fragmented Ohio state over here in Nebraska and Iowa, kind of planning their own things. Planning things together and It was Pretty powerful. I would say just to get all of the different parent groups together and come to a consensus even though we are all rivals on the football field. In the medium's We were all on the same page. You know, I want to ask you to because you know, we had Randy wait on last week and listening to him and listening to you. I think there's like confusion. From some people. I think most people get it from some some from some people, though, that I see on Twitter. I'm obviously everybody is upset. I mean that the football season was postponed, but I think You guys recognize that there is a pandemic And if safety comes first, you kind of understand that, But it's to me the protest seems to be and correct me if I'm wrong if I'm not articulating a right, Amanda, but it's more about as you said, transparent. It's less about the decision to cancel the football season. Then it is about how did you come to this decision on August 11th? You know what I'm saying? Like way we need to find out what went into that decision. Why you made it. Why it is in the best interest of our kids who have put in all this work and feel safe and everything, is it? I don't know if I'm articulating that right, but it's less about canceling football than it is. Tell us why you made that decision. No, I think you have it exactly right. We do recognize that we are in the middle of a pandemic, but we also recognize that we have three other conferences that are making an attempt to push forward with football. So what was the information that the big 10 had That made it so critical that we had to cancel on August 11th. I feel like they should share that information, you know? At the same time, as everyone is well aware, the Big 10 commissioner son is playing football at Mississippi State. So if it's unsafe for our kids, uh, why is it not safer for his kid? And I think that's the hypocrisy that You know, really has been bothering a lot of us, and I think the statement was made by the commissioner that they decided as a family that it would be safer for him to play football. Well, they never gave us that option. And so why? Why was that option not given to us when he was allowed That same option for his family is a great question. Amanda Bab is our guests. President of the OS You Parents Association. You mentioned the other conferences that air playing Amanda If it had been across the board nationwide that you know s E C, A. C. C all the power five's All the conferences said, You know what? We're not playing. Do you think you'd be having a protest tomorrow? No, I don't think so. I think that you know, really Like I said, we're asking for the transparency. But at the same time I got to applaud some of the other conferences. They put in the safety protocols and which like we had in Ohio State, and they're trying to play football. No. One of our messages as well from the very beginning was we sell our sons were safer playing football and begin at the woody and going through all the safety protocols in preparing for football season because They had something to wake up for in the morning and something to fight for, and they were taking that responsibility.

"The most disgraceful and negative president in the history of Ohio State University the worst president in the history of a University of over one hundred years. He steps in and brings up Kevin Warrant brings him to the table. I Guess Kevin Warren Killed The interview did great. That's great. People interview well sometimes and doesn't mean they're competent or good higher and Michael Drake begins campaigning and pushing and lobbying to get Kevin Warren. The job over Jim Phillips Fast Forward To August Twenty, twenty and Michael. Drake just drove the stake in the heart of Ohio State football one final time albeit from across the country, he brings in Kevin Warren. To be the. The next heir of the big ten conference and he gets these presidents. To Swear Him in Kevin Warren Unknown Democrat Michael Drake Known Democrat I mean he donated thousands of dollars to Kamala, Harris Senate campaign in California. Thousands of dollars. So Michael Drake is as liberals they come. He wants president trump out more than anyone as does Kevin Warren So here we are August twenty twenty and the big ten can't play football because they want you the people to believe that Donald Trump is the reason he didn't handle the pandemic correctly he didn't he didn't act swiftly. That is why we can't play football and that's why you need to vote in November. The audacity. We know we know bread president trump's to blame. It's all his fault. That's why we don't have football and Joe Biden we'll fix it all and like I said before I'm not even going to get into politics on this show. Clear evidence facts of what's going on. Don't say it's player safety don't try to tell me that it's it's anything other than eighty percent politically motivated and twenty percent trying to suppress the voices and unity of college athletes right to amateurism keep them amateur. And really excited to bring Randy wait on program here in a minute to talk about that because what they're doing right now I believe has a astronomical impact on the future of college athletics and College Athletes Families just the simple fact that Kevin Warren comes out after the fact and again after he cancelled the season talks about these next couple of months or critical, these athletes need to get get ready to vote and Get Out and vote register to vote, and then he also when asked about his son playing an SEC has the audacity to say, well, we we had a lot of hard conversations we sat down as a family and decided that's what's best for him while robbing the right of Randy weight and his Family Sean Wade and his family for having the same conversation and making the same decision. It's absolutely criminal it's absolutely criminal. Enough about that I promise I'm GonNa move on eventually from that but I have to go through what is going on. I WanNa make sure that this is crystal clear. If you vote to unseat Donald Trump because it college football, you are absolutely just playing right into what the democratic plan has been all along. I'm not saying we shouldn't unseat the guy I'm not saying he should get reelected. I'm just saying if that's rationale you've been severely duped. So, let's talk about what the plan is. As it stands right everyone has plans I mean purdue presented a plan Nebraska you're here in a minute Sean Randy Wade was on a zoom call with multiple schools and their parents association about what their course of action is going to be part of that's going to be a protest on. Saturday. So make makes you check that out eleven am in the Rotunda. but the plan right now as it stands Ohio, state is trying to. Present this plan and Ryan as they've mentioned it, it's been public that they want to start the season in January, not a spring season in the the more I think about it. That's the only. Pseudo. Realistic. Chance of playing two seasons in a year I don't think that that's I still don't think that's smart or safe. This bullshit season in twenty twenty one in the spring or winter will be a jv season. You're going to hear it from Randy wait a minute when I asked him if Sean will play in a January season amongst justin fields and why Davis and everyone else that I believe will not play but you'll hear from him whether Sean will consider that or not in the second half this episode. So how state wants to formally begin practice after Thanksgiving practice all of December when students are home right in a pseudo bubble like environment, right? No students on campus and they'll be able to practice and prepare, and the season would start January first and all the Games will be located in Indianapolis Detroit and Minneapolis in the domes and just wild to think about we could crown a national champion in early January and then watch Ohio state begin their season. Because I. Don't know if you know this or not but they are pushing forward every day. There's new things that come out about schools that are now talking about their fan capacity they're not talking about if they're gonNA play when they're going to play or how they're gonNA play, they're talking about how many people will be allowed to attend the game as fans. So. We just a race all the people that are that are fearmongers in doubters thought this was just a ploy by the south to to you know prolonged the the chances of playing but ultimately would cancel it. We're proving that they were dead wrong always were wrong. These people are pushing forward to play simple as that and they're gonNA play. So it's just Really, a stain in the big ten's underpants. I mean you got skidmarks Kevin Warren in your Britches, and here we are no football in the big ten. So I'm GONNA be curious. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA jump here with Randy on the phone. So we can get his insight into this but I wanted to share that information with you before we got to Randy and. Just kind of let you know where my head was at what I've been hearing and what the I guess. The insiders in the Midwest are saying and they're saying Notre Dame's GONNA play how states not but here get with randy way right now on menace sports. I very fortunate here on Minister Sports have a big big name guest especially, not only just general but considering what's going on right now we have. Randy. Way Sean, Wade's father and a really an an activist almost right now for players advocacy and trying to get these players and families in really you guys heard ray how you doing I appreciate you coming on. The manpreet. Home Man Regular break with you about what's going on this weekend? No doubt. I'm mostly you know I think everyone is watching because this is so paramount and so wild what is going on and so you have been so vocal and you have such a unique unique vantage point right? You had your son was a projected high draft pick came back for one more year of development to try to boost his stock and this mess happens and So I think you have the most unique perspective of anyone outside of maybe one or two other kids that might be in a similar situation but I really want to get to to what happened here with with you go into Chicago and what's went on since then because what what what I understand is this there's a unification of parents going on multiple schools and Parents Association has been very vocal. You have been extremely vocal and I just am curious like all right in your mind as you go through this process, what is the goal? What do you think you guys can get accomplished and how do you think this you uniting with other schools is going to help. So I think, I will call a big Fan Passion. and. It's basically could narrow down everybody go. So we hang an put more pressure on the big team and our university president to see what at what happened and. How could we not just push back for October November? Rain a high. Arrives not while they're. Working. Right absolutely absolutely I mean that I mean I think everyone knows my opinion I, think you know my opinion I don't think this should ever been canceled I think they should have just tested the waters and see how it went and a little anything else. There's if there's an outbreak if it ends up not going well, you cancel it, you pull the plug I don't think pull the plug on something from the front end has there been any communication with either Kevin Warren or Christina Johnson the president of Ohio State amongst, your parents, and you know between the.

"The MBA is starting the awards for the regular season, and Raptor head coach Nick Nurse has been named the coach of the year. And only a second season as the MBA coach also once was the developmentally coach of the year. Joe, I think this was the obvious choice. I think Nick nurse is the best coach in the MBA, not just this year but period because of what he continues to do with those rosters. He wins in a landslide and rightfully so. This is a team that won 70% of their games last year won the title lost Kwai Leonard had every reason to come in this season. Take a step back, and no one would have questioned it, and they go from winning 70% of the Games 2074% of their games. They actually won Mohr during the regular season this year than they did last season. They're the only team in the N B a That finished the regular season ranked in the top three in both offensive and defensive efficiency. Boston was the only team that ranked in the top five in those two categories, and that's it. Those are the only two that are at the top of that. Well bounce. So congratulations, Tunic nurse that is well deserved and well earned lose Kwai and do better. I mean, that is in the regular season. That is absolutely crazy now. Back to the Big 10 for a second. So this week yesterday the parents of Big 10 players Did a protest and we all like everybody likes the right to protest and went to the big 10 headquarters to say we want our kids to be able to play football. We're a couple of problems, One of which was the big 10 headquarters is closed. So they might as well have just gone Tio any random building wherever, but the symbolism was still there. But second, Myron is the fact that I think and that it's a sort of Ah, futile gesture like I just don't think it's going to do anything. These the The big 10. I think it's important for people who don't live in big 10 country to understand, Myron what the big tin mindset is. I've always found that the big 10 folks believe that they are what college sports should be that it's an academic school and sports and it like that. That sort of gives them a superiority. But this week has not gone well for you. The Big 10 is that league where Avenue trance stars? The big 10 says, Yeah, we were doing that a year ago, Right? Like there's that kind of crew on Basque sort of the way they carry themselves. And I think it has the largest footprint in all of college sports, the most money a lot of prestige, but I do think that this particular effort doesn't make a ton of sense to me because of what you said. Matt. I understand what you want. But what are you going to accomplish it? And here's my thing. The big 10 parents have been saying we just want answers, Joe, right? We just want Kevin morn to come to us and tell us exactly why the decision was made. That's not true that and what they want. They want Kevin Warren to come outside Big 10 headquarters. He's not even there is at his house, and they want him to say we are going to play football this fall. That's the on ly thing they want so anything other than that request is disingenuous. But at what point does this become the Little League Parents Association? At what point does this become a bunch of angry pants were saying You can't do that on my watch? This ain't high school, the same middle school. This is college football, big time college football right? You don't get to just walk into someone's office and say we demand change. And Joe, I think that to me is where the message is lost. I get you if you're saying we want to play these kids want to play But the idea that you're going to take some medical information from the doctors who helped him make this decision and you're going to figure out okay. It was the right decision of the wrong decision. Baloney you wanting to play. You don't like the decision. Just say that everything else, though. To me. Jo has been over the top, and it really does speak to the image of the big 10. You're not going to tell me we can't play with the big team. According to reports, there were Mohr reporters at the protest. Roughly 30 and there were parents protest ng roughly 25. When I first saw that I started laughing and thinking to myself, my God This was a disaster, and then you think about it. The whole point of a protest is to raise awareness right? It's the people's attention because you're trying to enact change, so it only took 25 people to generate more reporters and actual protesters, and we're here talking about it on ESPN radio and others were talking around about it around the country. You clearly have gotten your message out now. Whether or not the message is going to do anything remains to be seen. Let me ask you this because this is where the big question comes down, Madam. Throw it over to you. Should the players in the big 10 if they are not allowed to play this season, be allowed to transfer to somewhere where they can play? Should they have that opportunity? Should they have that chance? Of course. I believe that players should be able to transfer whenever they want wherever they want with. No, I mean, we don't say to any other students in America. You can only transfer if you check with this person. It is the most ridiculous I'm on a band scholarship. I can go wherever I want. If I'm on an academic scholarship, I can go wherever I want The idea that we're going to take these athletes who make us millions of dollars and tell them Yes. You make us millions of dollars. Yes, we don't pay you and yes, we can control whether or not you go play somewhere else is ridiculous. But A CE faras. The protest. I don't know. You know, the parents come out and they say we want to know how you made the decision. Here. I'm gonna answer it for him. Because of the Corona virus. That's why like it's not a shock. It wasn't because of something else. Now. You may disagree with that decision, and that is totally fine. But you know why they made the decision. They made the decision because of the Corona virus. Now, Randy wait, Who's the Big ten's protest organ organizer was on Freddy and Fitz Simmons and made a good point. Which is the Big Ten's commissioner, Kevin Warren. His son will be playing football this fall. That's great..

"Safe in my neighborhood anymore. In many New York City neighborhoods. These are not uncommon sites, but on the Upper West Side, it's the kind of stuff that you sort of imagines in New York in the seventies in the early eighties, that all of a sudden it's very president very in your face. That's 42 year old Abigail Boy. I think there's a real risk post pandemic that for the young families that Stuck around and trying to make it work in the city instead of fleeing to the suburbs that this could drive. A lot of young families like us out of the neighborhood for good on online petition with more than 3000 signatures and growing is demanding homeless residents be removed from hotels in the neighborhood. Parents Association at P. S. 87 asked its members to write elected officials and reporters demanding the same. Some shelter residents, like 55 year old Louis Pistorius say they know they're not welcome since he got to the Upper West Side in late July. Pastorius says strangers have been stopping him in the street, asking him what he's doing there. Why do you look at me like that? Because We are homeless we can and get on out to get our old place way have no choice, familiar centers. You, he says, used to install fiber optic cables before he was hit by a car. Now he uses a walker to get around and says he can't work. He's been in a shelter system for three years. They saying black lives matter, but they don't want black lives in this area. Many residents I spoke with said race had nothing to do with their opposition to the shelters. Several said they were sympathetic to calls to address systemic racism. And some say they even marched in recent black lives matter Protests, But Amanda Falk await social worker whose husband and son are black says Race has everything to do with it, she says. She finds the language he's seen being used in the Facebook group disturbing calling the residents creatures criminals inmate which is very fascinating one to me because it's not a crime to be homeless. Chatter about the neighbourhood changing has spilled over from online forums onto the street. The Lucerne on West 79th Street is the latest hotel to begin housing homeless folks with some 300 residents. Across the street from the century Old hotel, 69 year old Barbara Rock more sees my microphone and wants to talk. They're more than homeless. They're menaces to society is what they are. She and others who are advocating for the shelters removal say they would welcome homeless women and Children. It's the drug users and sex offenders living there. They don't want around. While we're talking were interrupted by a 25 year old named Klodian, who won't give his last name. He says Rock Moore's wrong The men should be allowed to stay quite frankly. Where else would they go? Start to argue Upper West Siders claim that they're so liberal that they want to help everybody, But then once it's in their own backyard, they say, get them out of here, and that's ludicrous. One of them tried to break the glass doors of my bill. You want to have a second man passing by. Here's their conversation. He asks if he can say something. 28 years old. I'm in there. I just don't got no,.

"The question of returning to school even more fraud because of age or pre existing conditions. Those family members are most vulnerable to the most serious effects of the virus. Some 2.4 million Children in the United States lived in a household headed by Grand parents. Keith Low Horn is a grand parent caregiver for his three grandchildren, ages 65 and three. He's taking care of them along with his wife, and they live just outside of Huntsville, Alabama, and he is with us now. Hello, Mr Lowe Horn. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you very much for having me as we mentioned you're in Huntsville. What's the plan in Alabama? I haven't really made very many plans. I think they're leaving it up to each district individually and in the district that we live in, they're going to offer three plans. One of those plans is just have a regular school with you. No kids in the classroom as is normal. Then they're gonna have what they're referring to as a virtual education, which is like home school, and then they're gonna offer a possibility of a virtual academy where that is like the child stays home. And the teacher actually does study plans and helps the parents teach. So this is me that that one is probably the most viable, especially for those parents and those grand parents said that are having problems interacting with the schools because the educational system has changed so much in since most of us went to school. What are you thinking about? How are you? How are you trying to sort this out? I tell you, it's been a topic of discussion for us because last year we had such while the school year was short. We had a wonderful school here because it was the six year old was in kindergarten. So we were really looking forward to him going back to school and being in the first grade and you know, being the big boy and just having another wonderful school year, so it's kind of disappointing for us. But it's just one of those things that you know, we we've thought about it and we stayed, and we just don't think that it's safe right now for these kids to get back together, and you just don't know what's going to be around, so that's just say for everybody. And considering that we're older, too, so we're just not that vulnerable age. You're the chair of the new Kinship Committee of the Alabama Foster and Adoptive Parents Association. So you know, in that role you're talking with other grand parents who are caregivers like you. What are you hearing from them? Let me tell you, it is the topic of discussion. There's there's just no question about that. It doesn't matter where you go or what you talk about, or who you talked to on the phone or on a computer that it's that is the main discussion. I think it's just one of those things that is just It's got everybody Is there a right answer, and I don't know that there is a right answer. But is there a wrong answer? I don't know that there's a wrong answer, either, so I think it's just going to be. One of those scenes is toe each family's gonna have to make the wrong decision. And then the school systems are going to have to adapt. To what's best for the family's versus not what's best for the school system responsible for the families. And so you were saying that for you, you You think that the best approach is going to be for you to homeschool with help from the school district, right? Yeah, absolutely. That's that's the best decision that we made because we have a very good school. We know the teachers. And one of the things that well, that we have to deal with also is because the six year old and a five year old both got types. And so those air individualized educational plans so whether it's therapies, whether it's physical therapy, occupational therapy, just seeing a therapist or whether it's some kind of physician that they have to see on a regular basis. Those all take part of the end of the educational system as well. But do you ever worry? Do you worry that something is going to get missed Because they're not with other Children. That is probably one of our biggest concerns because when we put the youngster in kindergarten last year, we were really worried that he could possibly interrupt the class and do some of the things that Children do. We could have been happier. I mean, he blossomed. He just had great. He even started riding the bus. We were scared to death just for you on the bus, and the bus driver was wonderful, and it got the point that they even let him out of the front of the school door. Instead of walking. He mentions class. He'd be writing to his classroom, so we know that he's going to miss that. We know that and that's one of the things that that is probably dreadful about. This is because he has friends and he's going to miss seeing those friends tonight to say this must be so. Hard because you're you're trying to protect your own health on the health of your wife and their health, but also give them what they need to thrive. When you're not here, and I'm just tryingto think about what that must be like for you. It's very hard. I mean, it's hard. I mean, you know, we have to do what's best for us, which sometimes may not be what's best for them, which in this case Would it probably be okay to send them back to class until school? I don't know. I mean, that's a hard one to find out on your own until you do it, But we know for our family. It's best for us to keep them here home. And us to do the best that we can and hopefully get help from the educational system to give them the best educational classroom that they can have for this coming year. R until this stuff ends. Key. Flo Horn is a grand parent caregiver, along with his wife of his three grandchildren. They live just outside of Huntsville, Alabama, Mr Longhorn. Thanks so much for talking with us, And I hope we'll keep in touch. And best of luck. Thank you very much. I appreciate your time and allow me to do this.
