This is unscientific. And parents need to know if they want to see schools open that box. But I thank you both for that Call. Good to hear from you. I'm gonna go back to Brad Stevens again. Brad Stevens is superintendent of Berkeley Unified School District and Wanna find out your thoughts about teachers who have health concerns in terms of well the whole discussions that were going on about re opening breath. Yeah, I appreciate the question in the morning to you, Rainbow. It's nice to hear from you. You know, we've had a clear process here in Berkeley that conforms toc. The Americans with Disabilities Act tol accept requests from teachers and all members of our staff who have underlying health conditions that they could apply for a work from home accommodation. We have been going through that process now for many months on day have been through interactive conversations, with each individual employees agreeing to accommodation. That take into account these thieves special health circumstances. So in my mind, this is been a relatively clear cut aspect of working with individual employees and its distinct from these larger conversations about reopening thresholds for all teachers. And I'm gonna bring another caller on. Murray joins us next morning. Welcome Murray's from Oakland. Good morning. Yeah. It was banned by any means necessary and I just think it is not safe to reopen schools. Children can be asymptomatic and spreading covert in school and back home. There have been 530 teachers who died from Kobe's last year, according to the Washington Post. In California alone, there have been more than 350,000 Children that have tested positive for covered. According to the State Times and here in Berkeley, there have been several positive cases of covert at the Berkeley elementary schools that has reopened. There have been two positive cases that Malcolm X Elementary schools in Berkeley and the parents were not notified about this positive cases until after the Thanksgiving break. And there are sometimes that still don't know. I know that same home is hard, but no child will ever get over the trauma of knowing that they potentially were the one that was responsible of spreading covert and possibly killing a family member. And we can prevent that by keeping the school's closed. No compromising with this virus. It's not safe to re open just to re open the economy. It's We can't. We have to keep our Children our families and to just face and keeping the school closes the way to do that. Thank you for the call and appreciate your Passionate concerns and want to get another color on right away. And that's Rebecca and Windsor. Rebecca. Join us, Please. Good morning. Good morning.

It was just able to start getting services just because basically, I had to Threatened the school district with a lawsuit so she was just able to go back to school last week, but she's the only child at her school on D.

It is and there and they haven't had, you know its schools have been serving vulnerable students basically all over the country and all over the state. Um I know many, many people who have Children with a syndrome just like person. Their kids have been Getting served, Um, definitely since the start of the school year. It's not last spring, and the misconception is that we're not allowed to serve anyone, but we have to be. You know this all or nothing Shut down. The governor said in August that vulnerable students could be seen that includes English learners, foster youth and special ed. And the students have not been receiving services and it's against the law. They are unable to get their I P goals met in distance learning, and it is an absolute travesty that our school district's are refusing to serve the students. It's causing major stress. Not only are these Children regressing socially and academically, but it is causing major stress on their families. Because there are absolutely no support in our society. We have been left out to dry and work and care for our Children, and it is an absolute travesty. Rebecca and serve them. We're just choosing not to. I've been reading a lot about what you've just raised with respected not like Children with disabilities, but homeless Children, English learners and so forth and I don't know if it's if it's really too hyperbolic to say so Many of them have been left out in the cold, and they're really regressing onboard, standing still not moving forward, and it's a terrible tragedy, and I Thank you. For that Call has a listener, Emily, who writes on the doctor. Since when her teachers not essential workers. Move them up in line to get the vaccination fit. Test him with proper and 95 masks. Get them. Facial test, Um, weekly and get them back into the classroom.

Fresh update on "school district" discussed on Bloomberg Law
"Now. Global News update. Senator Patrick Leahy is back home after a visit to the hospital. The Vermont Democrat was taken to the hospital out of an abundance of caution after not feeling well in his office. Earlier, Leahy was just picked to preside over former President Trump's second impeachment trial. The White House says it does not plan to get involved in the trial. White House press secretary Jen Psaki highlighted President Biden's thoughts he hopes and I'll quote him here. Senate leadership will find a way to deal with their constitutional responsibilities on impeachment, while also working on the other urgent business of the nation, sake said the pace and manner of the trial will be determined by the Senate. The acting attorney general is rescinding the Trump Administration's zero tolerance border policy. In a letter obtained by NBC News, Monty Wilkinson officially ended the practice, which caused the separation of thousands of migrant families. Move officially removes the policy from the Justice Department's guidance. I'm Brian shook You're listening to Bloomberg Law with Joon Russell from Bloomberg Radio. I've been talking professor Stephanie Barkley of Notre Dame Law School about a case before the ninth Circuit Court of Appeals High School football coach insists that he has the constitutional right to kneel down and pray on the 50 yard line after a game and he's taking his case to the Supreme Court once already. Now, the ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will decide whether Joe Kennedy's prayer is the sort of private religious act protected by the Constitution's free speech clause, or whether the prayer the focal point of a public school event is the kind of public speech the school district has the right to restrict the coaches lawsuit against the Washington State school district could clarify and shape the workplace free speech rights of millions of coaches, teachers. And other public employees of all faiths in the ninth Circuit. This case has been going on for some time. Stephanie tell us what's been happening procedurally, right? So when he with first bringing this case, it was I'm This time, the school district decisions let him go because he was giving a prayer on. But the 50 years line Listen history about what led up to that private. We can talk about that later. But that was a field tonight circuit and he lost. It was appealed to the Supreme Court, and all of this is sort of in a preliminary procedural posture. The Supreme Court said there were too many factual issues to take the case but that they were concerned about the way this Tonight. Circuit has described the legal standard and they sent it back. So now the case has traveled again through The district court proceeding. There was just oral argument at the ninth Circuit this week about the case, and then we'll see if if they rule against him, then I imagine he'll probably have cited a Supreme Court again and they will for him that it will be a question of whether the Full board want to appeal to the Supreme Court or not, And of course review. The Supreme Court is discretionary so that the court could decide whether off to take that case during the proceedings below. Did he explain why he had to pray at the 50 yard line? After the game while their players on the field so that his attorney was asked about that in oral argument, and just described his religious beliefs for that he needed Tonto. Immediately give gratitude and for the game, he was willing to wait until all the players exited the field. And so you know, there was no need for him to be. In view of the players. He said he would have been okay. Even waiting, like five minutes. Um and For a number of years. He had agreed with the request from the school district. Not to say any prayers where students were participating while we're doing it at the same time of him, you know his Didn't their athletes. So, um, that was just the way that he describes his religious beliefs that the school board asked him basically to do the prayer to different times somewhere else, And he said that would just be contrary to what he felt. Compelled to do to show gratitude to God. So now listening to the ninth Circuit arguments, where there any issues that the judges were particularly focused on The judges were focused on a few things that I thought were interesting that there was a lot of trying to make sure they understood. The timeline and, um Making sure that they knew whether or not there has been any coercion of students involved. Where were they? They had felt course because that's relevant is one of the establishment clause jurisprudence. So, um, Coach Kennedy's lawyer was arguing Uh, after he had received the request in the school district years ago, not saying Boston's. He has confided that and there are no clear complaints that are focused on his behavior. I'm after that he's having the pair on his own, not involving students and on the court was just trying to make sure they understood the student involvement and how that might affect Your experience at the school. You were also interested in the other claims that Which Kennedy right under the free exercise class and under title seven, But he was being discriminated against for his religious beliefs and the judge's name interested in trying to figure out And the go board actually tried to offer an accommodation. Have they actually been protective of his really displeased? Um and was the rule that the school board had espoused and its communication with the coach to broad such that it would have really troubling. In fact, some basically stripping any sort of public employees of their ability to practice their religion at all any time they were abused students So one of the judges, judge Morgan Christian, said. I strained to see this being a brief personal private prayer because the coach had expressed his plans in media interviews and social media posts. And talks to local churches. How did that question? He seems like he's expressing his opinion there. Uh, yeah, And that was that was definitely an important part of the argument. The attorney's response There was, um you know, private in the sense that he's not Including the student. He's not I'm you know, trying to include other members of the audience. There has been media about him defending his right to continue to do that. And so he's trying to In the Court of Law and the Court of Public Opinion tried to defend his ability to continue. But that doesn't mean that the prayer itself he's trying to make it a spectacle. And we know that this is the panel that refused to grant a t r O, which is a different standard. But still did you see the court leaning in any direction? I think that the court is gonna be probably engaged in a pretty fact Specific analysis here. There were a couple of times were The court was describing what they thought the timeline have been or what in Boston of students have been and sometimes attorneys on both sides were correcting them and pointing them to other areas in the records, So I think Of course, ruling is likely going to focus on whether or not when they go back. And look at that record evidence photos videos I'm in the decorations from students. Does it seem like there is some sort of actual coercion? Going on here or not, And I think it's likely that we'll see a ruling in that vein. I'm not sure if they will address the free exercise or the title seven argument that much length but I think that those very important part of the case and one that the Supreme Court for justices of the Supreme Court when this kind of last time signal that they're interested in and they think I would have had enough marriage that would have been worthwhile to consider the last time around. You mentioned that before the court. The Supreme Court didn't take the case, but explain that opinion by Justice Alito and who joined in it. Okay. So the court declined to take the case on the free speech ground because they said that there were some a lot of factual issues about whether or not he was on duty or off duty, or what exactly was sort of involved on discovers his teaching. And what the school district Was requiring surrounding that, so that's what they were saying about the speech claim, but That's why they denied the certification. At least this is what Justice Alito concurring opinion said that just the sweetest said no party has asked us to consider whether The district court. Excuse me. The school district was also violating title seven or the free exercise clause in the First Amendment of the federal Constitution and Indicated that there was some interest in considering those issues. And then, um, there were three other justices have joined onto that opinion. So, just suppose this case goes up to the Supreme Court that seems to indicate there are at least four justices on the coach's side. Let's say, putting a colloquial ng on the coach's side and then you also have Justice Amy Cockney Barrett and this is a court that is very protective..

Us school districts of seven years. They also looked at local temperature data for each district.

"But as distance learning remains inaccessible for many students and burdensome two working parents, the debate over school reopening continues to be contentious Nelson and Carlson say they've witnessed that in their own community receiving a mix of emails this week with messages ranging from why are you afraid of a little bug to thank you for trying to save us. The J O Combs Unified School district began the school year on August third with virtual learning but the district governing board voted three two last week to reopen schools for in person learning on August seventeenth. Superintendent Gregory Weiman said, the difficult decision followed tremendous feedback from families in the district who expressed a strong need for their children to return to the classroom. But more than one hundred of the districts six hundred staff members called in sick for what would have been the first day of in person instruction according to a school district spokesperson. We're sensitive to the feedback of our staff, as well as our community and are working nonstop to find solutions to the polarizing and challenging issues currently facing school districts throughout the state and country. School district said in a statement on Monday. While we continue to work diligently on this matter, we also continue to receive a high volume of staff absences and in turn will have to cancel all classes on Tuesday as well as Wednesday the governing board will meet again on Wednesday night to discuss school reopening options. Nelson Carlson are hoping that the school district will remain virtual at least until October arguing that schools shouldn't open for in person instruction until the county meets the three school reopening benchmarks recommended by the Arizona Department of Health Services, including a two week decline in the number of corona virus cases and positivity rate less than seven percent and hospital visits for illnesses like covid. Nineteen below ten percent for two consecutive weeks. I understand the argument that staring at a screen. All Day is not the best for kids. Nelson says, there are legitimately real challenges with all this, but I would rather deal with those than the fear of WHO's sick and who's on a ventilator. He adds I would rather deal with problems that don't jeopardize people's lives. In. Other parts of the country organizers have suggested similar action is possible teachers in Detroit are planning to vote this week on whether to strike over safety concerns teachers in little, rock. Arkansas. Have called it unethical and immoral to force teachers to return to in person instruction and said, they would refuse to enter school buildings on August twenty. Fourth American Federation of Teachers. President Randi Weingarten. Also said she would support safety strikes by teachers. I'd like to see nationwide action whether it's a walkout or sick out in solidarity to say it's not safe to return and we will not be sacrificed says, Rebecca Garelli and organizer for Arizona Educators United and national educators united a network of teachers advocating that schools.

"Budget because well. Boy I'll tell you what it's tough times for schools across the state. Insurance and it's tough times for for everybody really and you know we're taking a significant hit economically throughout the state, but pay. Twelve education is GONNA. Take a big hit probably a billion dollars upwards to two billion dollars to k twelve, and so You know we've been told to prepare cats anywhere from five percent to twenty percents we. We don't believe it'll get as high as twenty for us just because of how. Funding Formula Works, but it could get as ties fifteen percent, so we've already made about cuts to about six to seven percent of our budget was kind of already been announced. People have been let go. Salaries have been frozen for people who were freezing. Programs have been cut, and then we have another. Couple of rounds of cuts if it gets worse than that will need to make the, we're really waiting to hear from the legislators. You know they shut down. the session again on Friday, so we were hoping to have. Yeah, yeah, so we were hoping to have something on Friday from them. We have nothing to know that definitive in terms of really what we're looking at in terms of numbers. What do you expect is not good? Good well. No it's not good. I I expect at minimum will be cutting fourteen to fifteen million from our budget, which is six seven percent of our budget at minimum I You know it's. At we know they've cut grant so some of our grant programs, some things that were grant funded new grants. Those those were cut earlier this spring. Even though they haven't officially announced it, so we cut those positions that were part of those grants. You know and then we're just working really hard. To identify the places where we can make cost savings, so we've moved, you know we've moved as many people as we can into the grants that we have like our title dollars and we've eliminated any. Professional Development any materials consulting those things that we're entitled dollars so that we can keep people and keep the cuts as far away from the classroom directly as we can. So I can I mean we. We've cut people. It's not good right, and at some point it does have an impact on the classroom. There's just no way around it and it seems to me. I mean you know you've probably seen over the weekend, I mean it's like covid. Nineteen is almost in the rear view mirror as a result of the. Protests that we have seen across the country and. It has an impact on our kids. I can't tell you how many people watched over the weekend. talking about their experiences as we've seen the violent protests across the country, it thirty or forty large urban areas, and got the kids looking at their parents going, are they? Are we safe are? I mean. How will you actually in the classroom? You're you know you're exactly right? Gail and you know as we cut. We've cut twelve district level administrative positions, and you know those are people that support buildings to do. Things like implement social emotional learning curriculum. They are people who make the decision around what social emotional learning curriculum do we implement? And so there's no way as we kept people that it's not going to impact education, and and you know we were already one of the. Worst. FUNDED STAKES IN TERMS OF K. twelve education, and now and now we're looking at deeper cuts and. Kids come back. They're going to need more. You know some of the positions we've had to cut it then counseling positions and you know. Deans of student positioned the cordinator from the district level who coordinates those programs had to be cut, and there's no question that it's children. Come back, and then there's more needs not only because a cold bud, but also you know be because of. A these budget cuts, or they're just GONNA need more. You know not minimizing the situation whatsoever to based on what we've seen from Greeley Evans School district six so many other school districts across the state, certainly a teachable moment for our children.

"School district six in mind to achieve that same goal. Good morning nuts. That's a great question Gail, so we have a survey out to to parents and stuff right now. It just was released on Friday getting some feedback on preferences for the fall. Of course, all of us prefer to have students back in school fulltime all the time. we do know we're GonNa have some parents who want to remain online fulltime, or we have a plan to that, and we will be able to offer that if there's families who aren't comfortable sending their children back to school. We're ready to go on that, and then we're looking at for alternating if we have to alternate and the thing behind that is how many students are we going to be? What's recommendation going to be around? How many students can be in a classroom at a time? And so that recommendation comes out around thing only ten or fifteen students then we can't have everybody there, but if it comes out around twenty five students, we think we can. We can have most of our students in school most every single day, and so you know it's it's a constantly moving target, but we're ready. We've got several plans in place, and we've got a full online curriculum ready to go and. My team has been amazing. They're just their remarkable what they've been able to do and what? Our teachers have done in our principals over these last months and It's been really remarkable. It truly is and again you know it is so easy to go after the low hanging fruit, and take a look at all the unrest that we are seeing across the nation today, but I think we need to remember that. Many of us actually look for our higher selves in a situation like this, and certainly that's something that you have done at Greeley. Evans School districts six with your resilient response, particularly to all the restrictions. Code. But he begs the question. You were talking about class size and can't help but connect the dots this we see restaurants very slowly of course cautiously judiciously across the state reopening and many restaurants. You're saying you know with the restrictions in place, basically saying that you can only have what percentage of. Occupancy is posted by the health department for many of them. It's really not economically feasible or viable for them to reopen at this point time at back to your point about the number of students in the classroom. What is your typical class size? If there is such a thing, act really. Well. Classmates can can be are at the high school. Level can be as large as thirty five to thirty eight I mean we hate to get forty kids I. The ideal class size for little kids, the little you know, the little ones will be around twenty two to twenty four, and then we start to grow as we get older, but it is not unusual to have most of our classes at middle school and high school with thirty or more kids, and you know of course. Choir classes physical education classes those kind of. You know we might have fifty sixty seventy kids in those classes at one time so it. You know this really changes the way we work. We also know though that children are are not as impacted by this viruses. What adults are and you know? We, we have plans in place to cohort students, which is what the recommendation is so to try to limit students from mixing as much as possible from day to day, and throughout the school day, but you know this, but some significant restrictions on school buses just think about school buses. They normally carries about sixty to seventy students well if they tell us. Recommendations fifteen students on the school bus. Transportation isn't going to be much good for us at that point. Well and all the uncertainty and you know. We've kind of got this Cornucopia of plans that we're seeing for example Denver public schools and understand that you as a school. You need to come up with viable alternatives because we still have so many unknowns when it comes covert nineteen, but my goes out to parents because well. They're not sure if it's going to be like one week on one week. I mean what is going to look like and again it's the ongoing disruption that we're seeing as a result of covid nineteen. How do you address that with pants? Yeah that's you know that's a great question. That's why we put this parent survey Otas to CD parents prefer a week on and then a week at home. You know we get a brick and mortar, and then a week remote, or do you prefer to days, brick and mortar, and then two days remote, and what you know, what what are their preferences? And what works best for them? I think the other thing is? We've got to work really closely with our community partners with with ABC Preschool and Childcare Centre with dark center with boys and Girls Club which united way. We have to work more closely. Closely than we ever have with those community partners to to have viable childcare options for families Because that's you know we're not we are. We're not in the child-care business, but we know a lot of families look to us to provide that childcare during the typical school year, and so it's something we're going to have to do, and then on top of that. You know we're trying to do this. And in a world wind of of significant budget cuts. You feel we're trying to do more than we've ever done before for families probably with fewer resources than we. We've had here in a couple of decades. Well let's talk a little bit about the state of budget, and it's particularly onus onerous impact on educational funding throughout the state as school. District's are looking. Trimming millions.

"Show with Michael Brown here on the radio on KOA NewsRadio. May or may not be aware teachers in Los Angeles apparently going on strike and teachers in Denver are going going on strike. Agent. Jedday, synthesis. Email this morning, according to the summary put out by the state of Colorado. The Denver city school district employs fifteen thousand six hundred thirty one people. How many of the fifteen thousand six hundred thirty one people employed by the Denver city school district. Do you think are teachers I mean come on this before we jumped into conclusions? Let's be serious now. What's the purpose of a school district? I mean, besides indoctrination. Set aside indoctrination for a moment. To babysit. House feed, and I suppose in some instances clove Rugrats. Right. So who needs thinking teachers, why why why even have teachers? Well. Versus school district proves my point. Fifteen thousand six hundred thirty one people are employed by the school district. But only six thousand three hundred fourteen of them are teachers. I didn't do the math but agent Jedrzej dead. And he says that's forty percent. So less than half less than half of the people employed. But the Denver school district are actually teaching. He gets that from the Colorado department of education website. Can you think he asks can you think of any other private industry that has not gone bankrupt? We're the ratio of overhead employees to workers is sixty forty or one point five overhead employees for every worker that actually produces that actually does what they're supposed to provide the service or the product that the company is producing or providing. Holy moly. If you want to know. What is wrong with public education? I submit your honor these statistics. Let me repeat it. I want you to go to bed tonight thinking about this. I want you to cover all cuddly and warm in your bed. Then I want you to think. I'm a taxpayer. It doesn't make any difference with you have kids in school or not. Your taxes? Go to help pay for that. Fifteen thousand six hundred and thirty one people of which only six thousand three hundred and fourteen or actually in the classroom teaching now, I don't know whether those six thousand three hundred and fourteen includes. Like para professionals or counselors, but he respective whether it does or not. Only forty percent are teachers. I'd say. Turnaround expert or anything. But I did sleep at a holiday him last night. And I would say that if you want to figure out a way to cut costs cut your damn overhead. Oh, speaking of over overhead. I mentioned yesterday about the Douglas county school district teacher, Michelle or Michelle Chris Griffin. She had deleted her Twitter account after doc seeing a kid Duxing is deal. I n g. Not in the mood to explain it again, go look it up she docs to kid. Someone who is not even in Washington DC doesn't even go to that high school. She tweeted out a picture of him and said he was a member of the lower youth. The Douglas county school district is meeting. I think as we speak. The Douglas county school district. Apparently you have to sign up if you would like to speak. Which makes sense. You don't want to Bob, and you wanna know? Okay. So we've got we have forty five people or four hundred fifty people that want to speak at the school board meeting. So let's have them sign up. And then we can be methodically going through the list of names, and you know, okay? So Billy, Bob, you signed up first your first, and and then, you know, calamity, Jane, you signed up second Angie signed up and that will Michael Brown signed up. Except they also wanna know what you want to talk about. They want your subject matter. And if you're subject matter is that teacher, Michelle, Grissom, they have said, no, you can't talk about that. Now, the last I checked I may be totally wrong about this. But the last I checked the Douglas county school district is exactly that it is a. School district which is a governmental entity, which is paid for by the tax payers. Not just the Douglas county. Everybody listening anywhere else in Colorado, you pay into the general fund in the general fund in the Colorado legislature also goes to help support that district along with all those. Unnecessary people in the Denver school district. They're censoring people. If I want to stand up in a school board meeting, and I want to bitch about the jello school served in the school cafeteria. You can't censor me. And if you think you can. I got a lawyer. I'd like you to meet. Damn I wish you know. I should just pack up and drive down there right now. Just bar. Jim. I can make a scene.

"That's another reason why people are pissed off at them. It's not the school. Certain folks would like it to be well, and then also let's not forget that the eleven hundred homes that they're still pissed off about from Jim aren't in the Cyprus school district. Only a piece of the mar- the rest were in Los Alameda school district. I think that changed with measure didn't. I see because I hope it is. Just where the. People were so that they wouldn't have that issue of splitting between two places because then it almost it's kind of like it's kind of like this measure m thing it's unfair to lapoma employed park residents. Right because they are affected by. The two things. Right. But they're not allowed to vote on a silly asinine. I mean, if you live in the Cyprus school district, then you should be able to vote in the Cyprus school district issues, regardless of the fact that you live in Cyprus are not because percents group because okay. For for the Orange County supervisor race Winter Park is split it in half ish. Guarding grove is split in half found valley split in half. Like the valley split the thirds actually three people have part of Sun Valley. Okay. So if that can happen, and that's reasonable. Why can't everybody who lives within the boundaries of Cyprus school district? The able to vote on measure concerning Cyprus school district. That makes no it makes actually since here's the thing. Those kind of things don't happen all that often radio with that in mind, how difficult is it to accommodate that once in a while I would say zero, and especially you know, what if you really truly trying to get at the truth right of what the people actually want because they about it this way think about it this way. What if it loses by one hundred votes, and let's say there's seven hundred voters in lapoma. Right. And let's say they're ninety percent in favor of it. And I would that's about six hundred fifty better in favor of it in fifty that are opposed. Guess what it wins it wins based off of that? If I were those voters in the Pomme, I would be freaking pissed could get say, right. And it's ridiculous yet the outcome of directly affects your children. Exactly. And that's why I think it should be. If the school district is not going to follow city lines. And it shouldn't be based on what city you live in that you vote on it. It should be based on where you live just like board of supervisors racist. Agreed. Clearly, they can do it in some situations. So they should be able to do in this one to agreed to people on lapoma get to vote people onto the cypress school board. Yes. Well, then that just proves my point that it can be done. Yeah. Of course, I told you when I ran for school board. I had a campaign in LA Bamba. That's your. Cheeses, one of at least one of the current board. Members is from the Paul which makes sense given others a sizeable chunk of people from Pomme in our school district. You know, you that's how he got on the board was that..

"Awakes with you on this Wednesday. No, I was thinking about this. I saw hold a copy and Kathy Lee Gifford, and what's your name? Megan Kelly had brought her mom. So I'm thinking, my parents listen to the show they would love to get down the WTMJ's. This is far as I know they would love to do that. So I'm have to do it on a different day. Yeah. You can celebrate on a non take your parents to work day. Yeah. Get a kick out of it. And I think I told you this story started before back in my dad's day when he was a meteorologist from national weather service. WTMJ news department would play his national weather shifts recording of the weather. He was on our airwaves in the sixties. And seventies. We bring that back. Oh, if you could find that. Right. Yeah. Maybe we haven't do a live one for any always tells me, my my dad who was an awesome guy tells me that he did before they had computers. So they were really real forecasting back. Then I say, well, did you just call Minneapolis to say, hey, what's the weather coming our way? That's good enough. But no, yeah. Those those guys worked hard my dad's now, I think he's he's been retired longer that he's been any. He for the national weather service has got to be close. So shout out to my parents on take your parents to work date. I I didn't bring him in. But maybe some future data of the bringing them. All right. So I wanted to talk about this topic people been asking about referendums, there's a lot of them out there. How do I know that? So I pulled this story. This is really a Madison story to the school districts out there the Oregon school district Middleton school district. But in that story. The number associated with referendums for school districts in November. Hold onto your hats, one point four billion dollars one point four billion as my friend, Scott war, say a billion with a B though, he wouldn't say like he hates that when people do that. But that's the total some examples Middleton hundred and thirty eight point nine million, Oregon, forty four point nine a few examples. I I pulled out while we're Hosa November six hundred twenty four point nine million dollars in referendum value for the they say, they're aging school district oak creek city. I know very well seventy million. I believe is the the number associated with their referendum question. So why are we seeing this? Just a couple of things going on here. One when you live in community. Whether it's also creek Oregon Middleton, I was just in Middleton recently. Great great community. The school district. The prestige and the performance of the school district actually can raise home values can make people feel better about their community. It does a lot of things can be source of community pride. I get all that. But what the gamble is that I think most school districts are making now when you when you see number like one point four billion dollars that Wisconsin schools are going to be asking for in the form of referendums in November. How much is too much? And is this the new normal in Wisconsin, four one four seven nine nine one six twenty anybody little wells communities Middleton, Oregon tosa oh creek. What do you think? I've seen a little bit of detail on the creek wants involve some separation because allow the grade schools elementary schools share lunchroom space and Jim space. They want to separate those two things and develop some separate facilities. It involves a performing arts center noble goals, which should be on the back of the taxpayers Middleton. One of the more expensive ones. One hundred and thirty eight point nine million new elementary school. Renovations of Milton high school. Building. A cafeteria addition on park elementary remodeling, Clark street community school, an additional four point million on staffing and operational expenses for the new and expanded facilities. That's one hundred forty three million dollars and they requested a hundred and thirty eight point nine in in a referendum. So that's just one example. What do you think four one four seven nine nine one six twenty? I'll tell you what I think school districts, and I understand the power and the role of school districts play and communities. I'm not questioning that they do. Great work did do tough work. I'm married to a teacher. One of the toughest jobs nowadays is teaching high school kids, and we we know that because we've seen that failing performance. I'm going to be doing story next week on the this new notion of grading where if you don't take a test. If you don't turn a pay. You don't get zero. You get a fifty and how that's skewing the performance results in our state and everything that's good news for our schools. I don't think. So I think it's a challenging way to look at that. And and I understand I understand why they're doing it. There seems to be a momentum among school districts that suggests we're going to go forward with referendums. Price be damned. I made this point before. Let's go to Chris in Milwaukee earned WTMJ. Good morning. Chris. Good morning. How are you today? Good. What do you think? Well, I might I have two younger children, and I have five older children five older children went through parochial school heart through public school. My younger ones are in parochial school. What I see in my opinion ears. The public schools are the amount of money that you parochial schools are dumping in their programs and steel that they wanna step their game. Promo Cottam walk, and I've seen how the public schools there have dumped a ton of money into their public schooling. And it does seem to raise the bar for the public school system. Do you think it's a good idea that they're they're requesting in the referendums on the ballot in November one point four billion dollars? Collectively, I do think it's a good idea. Children our future. I'm not saying that there are things that could be cut from that request. But I think that it takes a group of of scholar people to be able to look at those numbers of break them down the palatable things that we can all understand because one point four billion bring up a great point. That's a lot of freaking money dump into the school system that being said you would want to see score test numbers. Go up.
