Thank you join the conversation. So, let's begin with you. Can you tell me about your early experiences fishing for her? She grabs sure it was funny, you said. My. Most of my career actually I kid people because it's only job. I've ever had Your career then. I don't even I don't even have a resume so. The way I got involved with this was my. My father was an investor in a small company called in safe back in the mid eighties when I was an undergraduate student at Wofford College. And I heard him talking about it. I was studying organic chemistry, and he had partnered with the person who had originally used the test for pharmaceutical application. His name was Dr Cooper Dr James Cooper. He used it at John, Hopkins. University, he was a a radio nuclear pharmacist who is making nuclear medicines and the test at the time for bacteria. Linda toxins was called a rabbit powergen test. You took a New Zealand. Zealand White Rabbit and you deluded your product that you were testing for contamination and sailing, and he's ten meals into the ear of the rabbit. You Monitor the ravitch temperature for three hours, if the favor spike more than three degrees that was considered a failed test, and that rejected the product, but you know these new nuclear medicines. Had you know half lives of their nucleotides pads of of only twenty minutes so the? The test was was ineffective for this. These rabbit tests just sounds so inefficient. How did we get from there to using what we use today? Yeah, so be. It was really I. Forget the time it was wasn't really about replacing. The rabbit test is about five minutes Dr Cooper needed for these nuclear medicines, and and and when he did it, and he made these first crew preps, and they were, and he published that. That in nineteen, seventy two. He was actually he was actually on a grant from NIH so it wasn't something that was patentable. it was public knowledge at the time public information because it was a h grant that funded the research when he published that in nineteen seventy two I. Don't think he really thought anything of it and as the FDA solve the the value of this test replacing the the rather. Test. They also realize it would be the first time that a an animal model, but whatever be replaced with a regulated in vitro tests, so they decided to reunite the test itself, and what's interesting is even today where the only quality control tests that's actually regulated by FDA and we have the same license. Our licenses eleven ninety seven. We have the same licenses of. Of biologics manufacturer vaccine manufactured right, and we're inspected by the twice a year. All our products has to be submitted and approved by FDA. So we're extremely regulated in the space, which is also important when you think about new technologies, and how will a new technology be developed when we're so highly regulated and controlled and the amount of testing? That was necessary to just. Show equivalency to the rabbit, but long story short as the evolution into safe. When I ended up in graduate school, I ended up going to a into safe working for Dr Cooper. We were very small. I was just four of us in the lab. And you know obviously one of the main things we needed. Was Horseshoe crabs. Charleston was known for having horseshoe crabs, but two things about Charleston one is the population or or South, Carolina population is very strong in addition to the the the largest physical more shoe crab. There is the. Female one time that from tail, the whole link. The female was basically a meter. Long thing so very long right? YEP, so so they're big, so you don't have to handle nearly as many to get the quantity of blood we needed, but back in those days the crabs were were a nuisance. They were considered pass. they tore the fishermen's nets ups, especially the fishermen, and when they were bottom, dragging which was warhorse, pass laced for ill and cough. That was a byproduct that they just didn't want to deal with many times. They would just throw them up on the bank. Let and die compost them. Grind them as fertilizer the only other commercial applications for them at the time was to be used as bait, but again thinking about just the pure amount of work, and it just wasn't worth the fisherman's time to do it so again, not very well like creature that. So going back. You said you've. been working in the industry, your entire life and that is very unique, so can you? Tell me about working for for your dad and doing the early fishing long story short so when I when I left Graduate School I was given opportunity the company wasn't doing really well at the time, although the tested then mandated by the FDA to replace the rabbit, it was still a difficult competitive situation so again for us. It was tough. That's why they wanted me to come. I was one of the first ones to get you know three or four o'clock in the morning and go gathered the horseshoe crabs. From April fifteen to end of June. We bleed only when they coming up at high tides, and mainly they come up at high types after dark. Full Moon and a hot crabs. You're going to be there, okay. The southlands in thousands in early days we couldn't handle all the crabs that were coming up, so it'd be kind of surreal I can imagine a beach full of crabs. It is and we you know. We had very selective fishermen that we work with because again. They a lot of them just didn't see the value of them. It took us a long time to get the get the attention of the commercial industry. Get them to realize the value of the crab. Eventually we did I would actually drive to the docks during shrimping season If they caught him as byproducts I would just leave our car business card and say hey, call us if you catch any byproduct I'll come, pick them

"Today is April second twenty twenty and my guest is historian and author. Diane Ravitch of new. York University this is her second appearance on E. contact. She was here April of twenty, ten talking about her book. The death and life of the Great American School System Her latest book, and the subject of today's conversation is slaying Goliath. I want to thank plan onyx for providing Dan with the Blackwood fifty two twenty headset. Diane Welcome back to Econ Talk. Well, thank you for inviting me. This episode is a continuation of recent episodes on the Charter School Movement conversations I had with Terry Mo- Robert Pond. And Sarah Car I encourage listeners to listen to those episodes as well as earlier ones, related education may be someone's yet come out Diane. You have a very different perspective from some of these previous guests you call the proponents of charter schools, disruptors, and those that oppose them the resistance What is your criticism of the disrupters to people who promote charter schools? Well the promise of charter schools and I was there at the beginning the beginning being the late one thousand nine hundred eighty S. and was a proponent of charter schools. I was in the. George H W Bush administration and we were very much in favor of the idea, which was a brand new idea back in the late nineteen eighties early nineteen ninety S, and I support charter schools during the time when I worked at the hoover. Institution and I was part of the correct task force along with Terry. Mo and Paul Peterson John Chapman Checker Finn Lots of others and A. Sometime into the two thousand, five began to become disillusioned, because I realized that charter schools were not realizing the promise, the promise being they would save for kids from failing public. And as time has gone by that I've become even more critical because there have been so many scandals associated with charter schools essentially the charter idea. was originally going to be a collaboration between public schools. And Experimental Schools Charter schools that were. Meant to be like RND centers for the public sector and they would have the freedom to try out new things and then bring them to the public school, so the public school could improve. What has happened over time, though is they have become competitors and they seek market share, and in some cases they seek to drive the public schools out of business I. Think the premier example that is New Orleans where there are no more public schools but they. The charter sector is such his failed to keep its promise of saving core. Kids from a failing public schools are those that are the most successful. Screened the S. Robert Fisk says they screened the parents in order. Get the best kids are. They don't want kids with disabilities. Are they? Exclude the kids who were troubling makers, they become selective schools, and that are not selective. Schools are very low performing schools. In some states, the charter schools are the worst performing schools in the state. I'm thinking particularly of Ohio and Nevada but there are other states where the charter schools are doing very poorly so it's broken. Promise so I called Charter. I don't think there is a charter movement as such I think what there is this just a lot of money provided by a long list of billionaires to promote the privatization of public education. Very critical those billionaires. Why! Why are you that critical of their? Is Their motivation you. You don't seem to respect what they're trying to accomplish or worse. You think what they're trying to accomplish is not honorable. Well I'm critical. The billionaires because I think they could be doing so much more productive things I think by now by the year twenty twenty. We've had thirty years of charter schools and we know that they don't accomplish what they're supposed to They don't. They haven't achieved close the achievement gap They select the kids they want us. Some of the charter schools have very very skewed enrollments like The highest performing charter school in the country are the basis charter schools. Schools in Arizona and they are composed primarily the hot, their highest point, schools, Arizona or white nation. They don't have very many. Latino kids don't have very many American kids and every few African. American kids in Arizona a they don't reflect. The population of did served by Arizona public schools, so I think what the billionaires should be doing is things that are actually needed they should I look at the evidence and say this investment, a literally hundreds of millions. Billions into the charter sector. His not produced results. We want many charter. Schools have opened and closed many of them. Take money to open and never open and there have been massive financial scandals associated with with the charter sector. The largest of them taking place, in California, if I were a billionaire I would be doing first of all as looking at the evidence and saying my investment in charter schools has not produced the results that I thought it would at what I will do. Instead is open health clinics in neighborhoods where kids don't have health care, I would open health clinics for at to provide prenatal services to provide family services, because the the biggest predictor test scores is family income, and unfortunately the charter school movement has at such as it is, and not again. I don't think it's a movement, but people who support Charter's say that. They can fix poverty by fixing schools and that hasn't happened. We have the greatest inequality that we've had many decades. Up to and including the current crisis, but poverty is hugely hugely important is the predictor of test scores that being the case I think that were a billionaire, first of all the lobbying to pay higher taxes, which I don't see any of them doing and fact, the Waltons who were the biggest supporters of charter schools are have had court cases around the country to try to lower their property taxes on their Walmart stores, but taxes are what support education and choice is not a substitute for an adequate funding for public schools. I WANNA come back tipped charter schools. and.

"So look for to that this weekend on Sunday actually so all right folks back tomorrow see you tomorrow. We are back Sam Cedar on the majority report on the phone. It is a pleasure to welcome to the program research professor of of Education and why you founder and president of the network for Public Education. Diane Ravitch Thanks for joining us. It's a pleasure to be with you. Thank you and I should also say. Obviously author of your latest at least slaying. Goliath the passionate resistance to privatization and the fight to save America's public schools down. We've we've spoken. I think once or twice over the years but I wanna we could just I? I want to start with just reminding This audience of your background because you had a an interesting sort of Journey to get to the place where you became If not the most foremost one of the most foremost fighters against the so-called corporate reform. Yes I was for many years on the wrong side of these issues I worked in the first Bush. Must Call Your Kasuri agenda of testing and charters Not so much vouchers. Although I I had a brief flirtation with them I also worked in several very significant Conservative think tanks and then about two thousand seven two thousand eight. I began to realize that The Second President Bush's Program. No child left behind was sailing that it was a disaster in the making charters. Alyssa turned against standardized testing. Excuse me one second. We're having a problem with We're getting some type of interference can. Can I just ring you right back? Sure thank you. Just pick up where we left off. You were Your experience in the second Bush administration I I served in the first Bush administration and the early nineteen nineties. I was a supporter of standardized testing. in school choice and specifically charters Then we're after the serving in the Bush administration and also served on the national testing board which I was appointed by President Clinton and early in the late nineties I was in several prestigious conservative thing tanks so I was on the wrong side of the issues. I recognize it and then twenty ten. I published a book where completely broke with all of these physicians and said publicly that I was wrong and that Testing choice for undermining public education. So we had. This is sort of like an ongoing during the obviously during the eighties to some extent Into the nineties this perspective on the growth of Charters. The idea of You know vouchers are that are that were out there. At what point did the sort of like I don't know the second wave where you had because those were more? It seems to me primarily conservative ideas and then at one point there was sort of like a store what what what actually alarmed any was that having worked in conservative think tanks and knowing how the conservative thought leaders if you WANNA call them then we're using black and Hispanic showed as pawns to push school. Choice and school choice has long been a right wing idea. It was the banner of the Southern Segregationist. Governors and senators senators After the Brown decision and it was a terminus actually stigmatize. People didn't talk about school choice because they understood that it meant a way to protect segregated black and white schools so In effect the Chore Issue Is Used To promote school choice and then Betsy Devos stepped in and made clear the what she really wanted. Most of over vouchers. We have vouchers and almost half the states in the country and the Supreme Court Decision. That may make them. That may wipe out all the prohibitions on dodgers. I WANNA I WANNA get to that in a moment but where at. What point did the the disruptors I mean? Do you put a Bill Gates into the same. I guess basket as as Betsy Devos. Actually I do I not because they're in the same political party but because he's actually supported Charters he supported a lot of the ideas that have been absolutely disastrous for public education and some cases he put millions and hundreds of millions behind them One of his worst ideas was the way to find out who a good teacher is to see which teachers have. The highest scoring. Students are which teachers can see the biggest increases in test scores? And we know the answer to that. Now which is if you're teaching in a very affluent district. You will be considered a high quality teacher. If you're teaching children with disabilities are teaching in high poverty neighborhoods. You'll be considered a low quality teacher. This these are Bill Gates's ideas so yes he is. He has been as much of a disruptor As Betsy Devos. I think what we're clarified. Things was that she made He she taught the public The school choice is indeed a very far right wing idea and these right wing. Libertarians have been pushing school choice at least since nineteen fifty five Milton. Friedman introduced the idea. I mean I guess what I'm trying to get at an and I want to get into deep. I've spoken to and largely in in many respects from stuff that I've read about. You know that you've written or appointed to that. You know the failure of the corporate reform of it. Almost eight hundred million dollars that The Gates Foundation put into their experiment. mostly on the west coast But of course it was other programs and The subsequent rand report that came out. I guess now two or three years ago. That basically said are bad. We didn't get it right and I want to talk about that but I guess what I'm just curious about is like you know just to give this time where we have these ideas. That are percolating on the right. That are in many ways a you know a Trojan horse to attack the institution of public schools to attack Public School unions teacher unions etc etc. And then at one point you have like a new wave of people who come in. It seems to me who they adopt these ideas because they think because they're used to them in the context of like business on some level and they're not listening to educators there. Maybe they're being swayed. Because you have all the money in these these right wing think tanks. What just give me a sense of when these different disparate sort of you know Characters came into this movement that ultimately and we'll talk about the sort of I guess the the David's in this who slayed Goliath but I think let me just point out that while I talk about slaying. Goliath Goliath is not dead. Glasses still dangerous but goliaths glances actually brain dead and what I wanted to show in. The book is that everything has been put forward as remedies for the school. And then mandate I mean when you say this was the only done on the west coast or this is only done in one place. It was. Oh the Obama Administration. Arne Duncan in particular. Who accepted all of these ideas expand charter schools Test rely on high stakes testing to evaluate teachers and Close schools that. Don't get high test scores. All these ideas are coming from the far right now. Arne Duncan Silo. Therefore right Obama's out on the far right but the Wall Street money was behind these ideas and also the very large foundations like the Walton family foundation which hates unions The Gates Foundation's Which love is high stakes testing and the ally foundation Another busy now on the west coast Who has promoted the idea that closing schools will make things better? So I I get a sense of. Let's let's start with like a the A no child left behind gives sense of what what that supposedly was about and then we'll talk about To the top George W Bush's idea was no child left behind and the basic idea was there had been a Texas miracle simply by testing every child every year and then either rewarding or humiliating. The school It turns out there was no Texas miracle so the whole program which was adopted by Congress was based on hoax. Texas is not the most outstanding school system in the country. It's a very middling school system because follow these ideas testing every child. Every year only makes schools focus more and more on testing. And we've seen cheating scandals all over the country because Administrators and teachers have have not wanted to be fired or have their school closed so no child left behind has been a total disaster And as I show in the book After an initial increase that came about from test. Prep you you get a bump from that. The scores just went flat. And it's been now ten to twelve years where test scores haven't changed at all So that was in cio B but even while NCNB. No Child left behind was in effect. The Obama Administration added race to the top which was filled with all the same ideas stakes testing evaluating teachers better test scores. Firing teachers closing schools turnaround schools by firing everybody. All these terrible ideas were imposed on the nation's school system and the only beneficiaries. Where the people who wanted privatization so now we have about six percent of the kids in the country attending about seven thousand charter schools and we have a a voucher. Movement is fueled by conservatives. Who WanNa see kids in religious schools? That are free to discriminate. I get publicly funded. I think one of the classic quotes from if not Betsy. Devos her husband but I think it was something to the effect of like. I have no problem with public education. I just have a problem public schools and other words. Let's take. Let's take tax dollars and use them to essentially subsidize parochial schools. I think I think they're willing to go private just to sort of you know. As a as a way of making sure that the parochial schools were there all right well so give us a sense for those people who are not you know who may not have dug into wise. What's what's problematic with high states tax testing? What is problematic with this sort of value? Add I think they call it a means of of determining the quality of teacher. Well the all of these very that ideas I mean they're two very bad ideas. One is high stakes testing where the test Sherman whether children are signatories is failures year. After year the standardized tests are based on a bell curve and so people will come in and say our kids are failing. Our schools are failing which is not true. And we're going to help the kids who are failing by by giving them more tests because the tests are based on a bell curve. There's always a top happening. There's always the bottom half. The bottom. Half is dominated by kids who are poor who have disabilities who can't read English And who have problems in the end? They're personalized the top. Half is dominated by kids who schools are well funded and who come from affluent homes with college educated parents Who Make sure that they have healthcare and and are well treated So the bell curve never closes so they use this nonsensical claim of that the achievement gap. Which will we will always have as long as we used. Standardized tests because the gap is built into sanitize testing standardized testing. Is the outcomes are almost highly correlated. They are completely correlated with family income and family education. There maybe a few outliers here where you find it. Poor kid who gets gets high scores. But they are the exception not the rule so all the standardized testing his cost over the past twenty years billions and billions of dollars. That did not go into raising teacher's salaries improving school.

"We're saying is if people drive thirty. Five Thousand People. Thereabouts will die. We don't want them to but they will and although we're very sad about that we will accept that side effect and we bring that over to the Kobe. Nineteen discussion and we say okay in order to preserve our economy. We know what we're willing to accept in order to preserve our ability to drive. What are we willing to accept in terms of the death toll in order to preserve our economy and our way of life and our livelihoods our cars along with our homes and our retirement savings and the food in our fridge and everything else. What are we willing to accept there? In terms of risk in terms of potential death toll. It's gotta be way over thirty five thousand. So what is it? I don't know I'm just saying that's the that's the ethical question that we're dealing with just asking questions and just asking questions now of course this dumb dumb at the time didn't Sort of calculate the idea that I well. I'm giving you all these numbers that we can predict what they are now. He clearly couldn't predict what the number of deaths we were. GonNa have with Corona virus. Because we're already ten thousand over where he said we would be or what would be the actual thing and had he had any inclination that it was gonna be over that number three weeks after he made that stupid video he wouldn't have chose a matt number but what he also doesn't realize. I mean and that's a number. Let's say remind people after we had done in New York and in major cities around the country already had been shut in for a week or two at that point and so the number would have been exponentially more and because we just came underneath the capacity of our hospital system in New York state which had to be basically nationalized on a state level. The government had to take over the entire hospital system to make sure that that number stayed just below what our capacity was as a complete New York State Hospital System Private and public. That number would have been much higher if we couldn't treat all of the people over that amount who came in so I wonder if that guy gets it now. I think yeah I I doubt it but what I kinda think was funny. This is a narrow point but when he setting up that stupid analogy any says and he's talking about car fatalities and he's saying but we are obviously not specifically setting up people to have a certain number of car accidents to appease the Gods I. It's funny because it's like no. That actually is the one to one with what you're talking about right like in other words if we keep going during corona and we don't give people a social safety net so they can social distance. That's actually exactly what you're doing. And that's what the Lieutenant Governor of Texas himself said directly. You should sacrifice your life to keep going to keep the economy going so it's funny that even in the setup he couldn't create a one to one because yeah you would be sacrificing people's lives directly to keep the economy going. I also realized in my head I do not distinguish between him and the other guy so I was surprised when my they're the same person. Honest my God. He grew grew quickly. let's let's do a couple more of these clips we've lost the Internet connection again So this'll be a this part of the show will be posted. I guess after the fact And then we're going to instant Instant premier the Diane ravitch interview. here is a a a comedian from New Jersey guy named Dick. Db Tanto. I don't know if I ever ran into this guy. I don't think so but he was making a one of the best arguments for a mortgage moratorium and I would apply this also to a rent. Moratorium that I think I've seen And he did it Fairly in a impassioned way here it is could number eleven this going to say it now government. We understand that the virus is not your full. It happened that is what it is. I'm not going to get into that idea that maybe you could have acted sonal. We can deal with that when.

Right we had ten homers and nine singles in this game welcome to baseball two thousand. Eighteen but I did talk to scooter, after the game. And he said isn't this. What, people want isn't this what they want ten homers excitement like this so instead of the all stars. Looking at it like it shouldn't be a homerun derby they're saying this was an exciting game extra inning game I would answer that with yeah we liked the, homers but we want a lot of other things mixed in. Either Homer or striking I wouldn't, mind, seeing some position players making some plays every now and then, get a one play that we. Saw what's, made when Joey Votto dropped the ball and and then gene. Cigar hit the big three-run Homer afterwards but in an all, star game yeah you have a lot of guys trying to hit home runs but. This is a little overboard I mean this this, ten home runs at, a whole. Bunch of strikeouts Aaron judge started off Homer in the second, inning? First Yankees player to hit a home run the all. Star game since, Jason Giambi in, two thousand three gene cigar had to go ahead, three run home, run in? The eighth inning? After the pop foul that? Was by the dugout dropped.
