The Liberal Debate on School Choice

"Go with a more kind of a difficult one It requires a little more explanation School choice So the liberal idea because I understand the liberal but they don't understand us The liberal idea and the way they would defend themselves and say oh we don't need school choice We should have schools that give equality education to everyone And you hear that and you're a liberal who buys into the progressive label By the way great op-ed in The Wall Street Journal about that this weekend Nothing off topic but the guy was writing how we got to get past the label of conservative The conservative label is a terrible one It sits like you don't want any It implies excuse me you don't want any change Let's just conserve stuff Progressives are always going to beat us on the label Well look progressive progress Wow that's a so don't laugh I mean the marketing may sound stupid and frivolous and silly It's not Folks not everybody is into politics as you and I are Some people just accept it Like why would I want to be a conservative I could be progressive and into progress or whatever And you look at school choice and you see how they work They're branded And they say things like well everybody should have access to a quality education And you save yourself well gosh that makes sense Of course they should Except what they don't tell you is it's not what's happening The parents who finance the school system are being forced into schools It sucks because when you give anyone monopoly power over anything education anything else they're going to abuse it The left hates monopolies but they only love monopolies when they're in their best interests like the public school system where teachers unions give them money Do you ever notice that So the liberalism is a rotting cancer It is a metastasizing cancer on the body politic It won't work My point is because it can't So why do we keep doing it and keep walking into this both financial educational and cultural abyss where we're destroying ourselves piece by piece minute by minute second by second And the answer is because a bunch of useful idiots want this

Mike Pompeo: Head of Teacher’s Union Is the ‘Most Dangerous'

"Actually has a very good point here, as I pointed out and wrote this a couple of years ago back in 2019 and my book culture Jihad. That the radical leftists were actually using our nation's public education system to advance their radical agenda. So in essence, the reason why our country has changed so radically over such a short amount of time is because of the indoctrination that's happening inside our public school classrooms. Now many moms and dads, you weren't aware. You had plenty of stuff to do. I mean, you send your kids just like grandma and grandpa and great grandpa and great grandpa. You sent your kids to school and they had a school marm a teacher and you learned your lessons. You learned how to add and subtract and you learn how to read and write, you learned about dissecting a frog. Little boys went to shop class and they learned how to change tires and change the oil and how to build shelves and little girls learn how to make delicious pancakes and waffles with blueberries on top. That's how life was in America. And you know what? We won world wars. When we had an education system like that. And if you made a mistake, you screwed up. It wasn't the teacher's fault. You got your butt spanked in the school, and then you got it twice as hard, once you got home. And guess what? Generations of American boys and girls grew up, they became patriots. They became hardworking taxpayers, respectable citizens, and community leaders. And they'll do that anymore. Now you go to school, your poor kid comes home, and then let me know what their pronouns are. So I think Pompeo is right here when he says that the most dangerous person in the world is the leader of the teacher's union right here in the United States of America.

You know, they don't stop in terms of targeting people, Mike Pompeo just called the head of the teachers union, the most dangerous person in the world. Wow. Really? Yeah. I mean, I saw that yesterday I was absolutely stunned. Well, yes. And they want to kill Americans, and they are now encouraging other Americans to target other Americans. And the worst part is we are just getting started. Things are going to get much much worse. And I'm going to give that to you straight, no chaser. This is a pure, very obvious intelligence analysis that now because they won the House of Representatives. They feel not just empowered, but emboldened to go after their enemies. The good, you know, to a gay nightclub and shoot all the patrons. You know, to the point where, you know, families were there. They just, they have been told over and over again that liberals, liberalism, you know, education with the case of Randy Andy Randy weingarten. That's insane. Yeah.

Do Parents Know What Is Happening in Their Childrens' Schools?

"School board candidates who pushed parental rights, only one third of them, according to this, if this is accurate, one. So my producer believes that the reason is they don't know what's really happening in the schools. The teachers unions just. Bombard them with propaganda and they believe it. I don't know the I don't know why. If you don't know what they're doing to your children at school, you're an incompetent parent. I'm not even apologizing for insulting you. You're an incompetent parent. If you do not know the damage that most schools are doing to your children. If you're okay with it, or you don't think it's damaged, I have no argument. If you think your child should learn about straight and gay and binary and non binary at the age of 6 and should go to drag queen story hours at the age of 5, then I don't have an argument with you.

How Education Is Driving the Midterms

"When you go to Wisconsin, when you show up with Lee zeldin in New York, do you talk primarily about education because I think it is driving so many parents to do things they have never done before, whether it's go to a school board meeting or organize a voter caucus or demand accountability for ideology in the classroom. You bet everywhere we go. It's amazing. I was in Oregon. And by the way, Oregon is going to elect a Republican governor. And there were moms standing there with homemade shirts that said parents matter. I mean, this is a movement that started at ground zero and loudoun county spread across the Commonwealth has spread across the nation and it is absolutely top of the ticket. It brings people together around their children. And again, it's not Republicans versus Democrats. There was a woman in a rally that I was just in in Wisconsin. And she looked at it and she said, I'm a Democrat. I am a lifelong Democrat. And I am going to vote for Tim Michaels to be our governor because he's going to stand up for our kids. This is just a big, big moment where America recognizes that the party of education is the Republican Party. And the party of education is driven by values that first support parents that understand excellence that understand that we have to lift the ceiling and the floor that we've got to remove power from teachers unions and give it back to parents. We have to celebrate teachers who do the work, but teachers unions need to find something else to spend their time on besides shutting down our schools and making sure that our kids can't even pass fourth grade math.

"I hope the people in Michigan have a long memory about these sorts of things Where do you disagree with her fundamentally on the policies Well first and foremost on education she is completely beholden to the teacher's union and believes that as long as you are keeping the teachers union happy it doesn't matter that the state is in the bottom ten in the nation And she has continued this trend that we've obviously we were out of school longer than anyone else despite the fact that she lied at the debate And so our kids are miserably behind We just got our nape scores back and we're in the bottom ten in the nation It's devastating to see what is going on but also on business as well Our state is has a completely over regulated system We are over regulation or regulatory status out of this world We have to reduce that by 40% We can't compete with the neighboring states on automotive She says that she's saving automotive Automotive is leaving the state of Michigan That is our legacy industry We are not in the running for the upcoming plants right now And it's because of our regulatory state and she has no business background She has no idea what these businesses need So when you say she shut down our state we lost more small businesses than any other state in the past year She shut down restaurants for 8 months Can you imagine a restaurant being shut down for 8 months and actually surviving it 3000 restaurants closed and when you talk about her choices during the pandemic you could deliver marijuana curbside but not Easter lilies So the Easter lily guy got a note on his greenhouse door that said if you continue to deliver Easter lilies curbside we will have the police here to put you in jail That was how she ran things She had a shame list on the Internet of companies that broke her rules so that people would know And if they agreed they broke her rules they're fine would be cut in half And that would be all the public record

We Are Witnesing the Transformation of Our Country

"Obama, when he was in office declared that they were going to fundamentally transform America. You don't fundamentally transform something you love. You strengthen it. You support it. You don't tear it down. You don't change it into something else. They're trying to change it into something else. And in the last 21 months, this is what I said to the group last night. The last 21 months, there has been more damage done to the foundational building blocks of America. The constitutional foundation, then I think could be done in 20 years, or I would have thought could have been done in 20 years. In 21 months, look at where inflation is. Look at where the economy is. We're in a literal recession with two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth. Look at the southern border. Look at the violent crime rates in America's cities, all across the country, from one end to the other. Look at where we are in our schools with indoctrination. The gender queer theory being pushed by the teacher's unions and pushed through administrators and teachers right to the kids. Parents being left out of the equation. All of these things, all of the damage that has been done to this country in just 21 months. Now try to imagine if you give them 48 months. Give them 48 months of unchecked power.

Betsy DeVos: Parents Saw What Their Kids Were Learning & Not Learning

"Looking back over the past couple of years and to see moms and dads finally standing up and saying enough is enough, moms and dads getting involved and re-engaging in the education system. How important is that where we are right now at American history? Well, Todd, it really is a pivotal moment. And you're so right. The last couple of years, parents have had a front row seat to see what their kids have been learning or in many cases not learning. And they've been alarmed. And whether it's material that is totally inappropriate for young children or whether it is curriculum that is so non robust and so lightweight, parents aren't happy for a variety of reasons and rightfully so and we've seen them find their voices starting last fall with the governor's race in Virginia where it was a very clear delineation between Glenn youngkin standing up for parents and for kids and Terry McAuliffe, who was totally aligned with the system, the status quo headed by the teachers union and all of their allies. So it's a really important moment to move to education freedom, where families will actually be able to control and direct how and where their kids learn.

Teachers Unions and the Destruction

"Illinois, no one thought Illinois schools were shining Beacon in the education landscape, but we didn't know how truly awful. This is the generally understated Wall Street Journal editorial page. We didn't know how truly awful so many of them are. All thanks to Democrats and teachers unions. Teachers unions have more contempt for American students than any group in America. If they were a group titled, we crap on students, it would be called teachers unions. That would be if they had an honest motto. We don't give a damn about students. That's even better. Yeah, we don't give a damn about students. That would be teachers unions. Everyone knows it's true, except for the parents who keep their kids in the schools that the teachers unions control.

What Issues Resonate the Most With Arizona Voters?

"What are the messages that are resonating the most with voters here in the great state of Arizona? Well, recently, of course, it's education because we, we've always been on the cutting edge forefront of education freedom so that our families have options in Arizona and we just recently our legislature past ESAs for all, which some people call them vouchers. They're not officially called that. It basically, it means in Arizona, the funding follows the student. It doesn't get earmarked for one specific school. You decide where you want to send your kiddos and you send them off there. And of course, the left is attacking it. They don't want that. They don't want that education freedom for families. And so that's a big story. Of course, my opponent who went to a private school herself doesn't want other children in Arizona to have access to those private schools if their family chooses. That's the best fit for them. And so she tried to block it. She's, of course, in bed with the teachers unions who, by the way, don't care about the teachers. And they don't care about the students and they hate the families. So that's a big story. And the economy, we are seeing people struggle. People move here, Charlie, the Arizona, not just for a great climate, but because it's been an affordable place to live. And it's becoming less and less affordable that hurts our retirees. We have a large retiree population. You know, a dollar when Joe Biden took office is now only worth 87 cents, I think. And going down quickly. So it's very sad. Getting horror. And I don't know many people getting huge raises to make that make up that gap. It's not happening right now. So those are big issues. The border is a massive issue because the wide open border with the narco terrorists and cartels in charge is affecting every aspect of our life. The extension of pouring across the crime pouring across the people pouring across and they're ending up staying in housing that we could frankly use for arizonans.

Parents Are Key to Nevada Election

"Let's conclude by talking about education. Teachers unions are throwing a lot of money around the United States always for Democrats. I don't know if they're on masto side. But to parents, are they going to reject school boards that kept their kids master away from school, come the day of election? I don't think parents have forgotten what the Democrats did with the support of senator masto. They shut our schools down, we never needed to shed our schools down. You had single Hispanic moms trying to work at a job and deal with homeschooling, zooms, it was simply unworkable. As parents started listening into these to their schools, they started realizing that our educators were teaching kids to hate America and to hate each other. These are things I don't think anybody was happy about. You definitely saw a lot of the school board activity here. In fact, I visited a school board and you just could not believe the intensity of this issue. And then we can't forget what Garland did with going after parents.

The National Teacher's Union Has Gone Too Far With Woke Sexuality

"The national teachers, unions, LGBTQ+ caucus, has created a website and a badge for public school employees that promotes non binary identities, basically a how to guide for queer sex and the idea that transgender men can get pregnant. So there are reports out now that the national education association, and its local affiliate and Hilliard Ohio. Have been providing the staff in the Hilliard city school district with this QR code enabled badges, which point to the NEA LGBTQ+ caucus website. And resources from gender activist organizations, including Scarlett, sex, et cetera, gender spectrum, the Trevor project, and teen health source. And one of these linked resources teen health sources queering sexual education promises to empower youth and also includes a how to guide for performing anal sex and bondage and renting and domination, sadomasochism, muffin, and fisting. The materials are extremely graphic, explaining how to do these things, for example, how to put a whole hand into a person's vagina or butt, now listen. This is not a fringe organization. The NEA is the largest teachers union in the country, represents more than 3 million public school teachers in all 14,000 local school districts and it's been captured by radical gender theory and its perverse sexual ideology.

"But now when you understand that people are literally becoming teachers because political organizations on the left are telling them to, just so that they can influence overall political policy in our country that doesn't have to do with education. It's all like, wow. That makes a lot of sense. It's kind of crazy. So the last thing I want to share on this too is that Ron DeSantis is a really great example of how the education system from a government angle doesn't have to be so broken. I'm a big advocate of alternative education, right? I won't be sending my kids to public school. I can't wait to homeschool and I work every day on drafting and creating curriculum because I would love to share it with as many people as possible. There's all these people in different stages, right? Not everybody's like me where it's like I'm going to build a property and a home school and a community school and I'm going to do this, this is I get it, okay? Not everybody wants to do it or can do it or is able to. So there's a bunch of different parents out there, like some maybe definitely want a homeschool, but they don't know where to start with curriculum. Some just are nervous about public school and want to find an alternative, but they don't understand all the different aspects of school choice, whether it's charter school, a religious school, a private school, a homeschool pod, all these different options. Other parents are like, listen, I'm seeing some things and I don't like it, but my kids in public school and I don't know what to do. Should I add curriculum or are there conversations I should be having with my kids? Are there things I shouldn't trust the government to teach them and I should be adding my own lessons when they're at home? There's all these different stages. And so I really love that. But I think it's important that even though we are coming up with alternative ways to educate our kids, we can't forget the rest of the kids out there. And no, I don't think we should be taking responsibility for other people's children, the way the left wants to dominate all kids of America, I don't think America's children should be the responsibility of the government. I think we should just make sure that parents are supported in every way they can, and we should make sure that we're taking care of our most innocent. So that means stopping our kids from being indoctrinated, caring about what they're taught, even if they're not our specific kids, our communities, children, deserve to get a proper education. And that's what I care about. We can't just abandon them because our kids are taken care of. So, when we look at public school specifically, I love what Ron DeSantis is doing because he has, first of all, really been able to stand up against school lockdowns and making sure kids are getting in school education, but he's also very adamant about comparing his state versus states like New

You have the president of the United States going right before the midterms to speak to them, but not even about educational issues, you've got to wonder how does this all happen? Well, I remember a handful of years ago I started to do some research into the leftist organizations of the country. One of them is the democratic socialists of America and they have an initiative of why socialists should become teachers. And I always find it fascinating to think back on because the first reason of two that they had on the website was number one indoctrination. That's how you can spread the leftist ideas. You can indoctrinate the kids with curriculum, the basics that you would expect, right? But the second one really got me interested in looking more into the connections in the country. And that's how I got so interested in education, or it's one of the reasons why I did. The second one was about how, if you were a member of a teacher's union, you are a member of one of the most powerful political organizations in the country.

"And my dad used to say you used to talk about whether inflation or the situation of a family that breathing room is at the end of the month when you paid all your bills. Did you have a little bit left? Just a little bit left. So there's more than one way more than one way to deal with the inflation of a family to lower the price of the things they have to deal with. Because that's what folks at home think about. How much are their monthly bills? How much do they have to pay for the necessities? This law is going to give just a little more breathing room with my dad was. Is it when you look at the numbers, most Americans, this is shocking to me most Americans don't even have a $1000 saved up in an emergency fund. But then, because of the massive amounts of inflation this year, economists and experts are saying we should be saving $5000 just to be able to afford the things we afforded last year. $5000 expect that as an increase in the general cost of living for you. So how do you look at someone and tell them to save $5000 when you know that they don't even have $1000 saved up at the moment? The some things are just physically impossible. We're able as a country to complain about things like pronouns and things like the skin color of The Little Mermaid, et cetera because we live in such blessed, secure and safe times. And yes, I know that we're going through some problems right now with the economy. Yes, I completely understand that. But think about it on, if you look at the woman in Iran, that got killed because she exposed her hair wasn't wearing a hijab. She got killed. We at least in America live with the basic sense of safety and security because we have a public safety system. And listen, I know. It's hard to talk about this because we feel like we've lost a lot of trust. We've we don't have that same respect and feeling of, oh, well they'll always be there for us because why would the government do something bad to us? Why wouldn't they be there for us? We're experiencing some trust issues now, right? But in general, compared to other countries in the world. Where you can just get murdered and nobody even cares. There's no justice sought. We live in very, very secure and blessed times compared to other people out in the world. And then especially other people during other periods of time. And so now, as we're especially for Gen Z and millennials, experiencing what it's going to be like to experience a really bad time pretty soon,

"He loves this kind of weird stuff. Needless to say, he's going to speak at the largest or one of the largest teachers unions of America and does he promote it by saying, I can't wait to go talk about how we can properly educate our children in this country, guess. No, he did not. Instead, he posted this onto the Internet. I'm at the NEA today to highlight the choice voters have between building an economy that works for families. And the Republican plan to make healthcare more expensive, ban abortion nationwide and put Medicare and social security on the chopping block. Wow, that sounds really education oriented. First thing, I find it hilarious that he is talking about how his plan to build an economy that will work for working families is his priority. Number one the economy has tanked because of his economic failures. Number two, they are so completely anti family, it's not even funny, but when it works for him in a political speech, it works for him and they make it work and then they completely abandon all hopes of promoting family once again. I mean, literally last week we talked about this on the podcast, guys. Last week, we had AOC saying she's scared to have kids and people shouldn't have kids because of the worsening conditions of capitalism. You had David hogg saying that he'd rather buy what a fancy car and a golden doodle instead of having to pay for a child than his life. And we continue to see them advocate for really nasty policy that slams down the concept of the nuclear family. Removes it from ever being wanted in the life visions of young Americans. They make them completely scared of embracing that kind of responsibility and instead say, do you know how expensive it is to have kids these days, you don't want to do that, and they say, you know what? Want to know what would be smart for you. Instead of doing something that will create a strong and stable family, like I don't know, pursuing a marriage with somebody that you deeply love first. And then doing the process of baby creating and then you can have a baby, instead they're like, you know what? No, embrace hookup culture. Reject marriage reject faith reject core basic values, and then when you have a fractured family in your own life, a child born out of wedlock and you're completely sad and depressed because you're doing anti science behaviors in your life and you wonder why your body is not corresponding with what the world with what society told you would be happy with what the Democrats and the left told you would make you feel happy. Well, then maybe what you're going to need is more support and leaning deeper into the worldly ways that we tell you will make you even happier. And so an even deeper lean into the materialistic desires of the world. And even deeper lean into alcohol and drugs and mischievous behavior with people that you don't exactly love, right? I see it as a cycle, and then once all of this nasty culture that they put on to us creates brokenness in society, broken families broken communities, the need for more programs because people aren't properly taken care of because there are so many issues that come from children being born out of wedlock,

"So the whole point is that if you are a member of that community, you can then scan the QR code on the teacher's badge and it will bring you to a website and it says I'm here in partnership with the NEA and other groups that are a little more woke. On the website that it pulls up to it says any a lesbian gay bisexual transgender queer plus caucus. Sex education resources. This is LGBTQ inclusive sexual health, education, allies, sex, et cetera, center for young women's health, young men's health site, a call to action, inclusive sex education, queering, sex, education, teen health source, inclusive sex education, what works in youth, HIV, and there's more. So you can scan it and it brings you to that site. But then it says one of the resources is teen health sources guide to quote queering sexual education, which promises to quote empower youth and features a manual on quote sex acts that don't get enough play. So again, just to bring it back to the whole process of why we're weirded out by this. This is NEA endorsed. It's in any a badge that a teacher or professional wears in a school with children on the QR code that they are encouraged to then hold their phone up to and check the site out the site teaches whoever scans it about different sex acts that don't get enough play. And it's just, it's stuff that Morgan's not in the mood to talk about on a Sunday. How about that? Okay, you guys listen, I tried to record this where I actually read aloud what's on the QR code site, but I physically can not do it. I can't do it. I know that there's a lot of young people that listen to this. I won't do it. If you want to check it out, it's Christopher rufo real, Chris rufo is his at on Twitter, and you can check it out, but it's wildly inappropriate as all I'm going to say. I can't even say the things out loud. So next it says, the NEA is the largest teachers union in the country representing more than 3 million public school teachers in all 14,000 local school districts, and they're actively promoting resources for, quote, here it goes again. Putting a fist or a whole hand into a person's fill in the blank or fill in the blank. That's one of the little sections. Disgraceful is what Chris rupo says. So he wrote up a whole thing and called it sexual disturbance.

"So the first thing in this conversation of teachers unions in American politics that I want to talk about is a good article from Fox News. The headline is NEA teachers union, where Biden spoke has showered Democrats with political contributions over the years. Democrats received more than 98% of national education association contributions. This is by Brandon Gillespie, and again, it's at Fox News. Now, I'm starting with this one to really show you guys how stark the contrast is in terms of support for Republicans by the teachers union and support for Democrats by the teachers union. Now, I'll be honest, I vote Republican. I have problems with the Republican Party. I don't really identify as a Republican when people ask about my politics anymore. I just tend to vote for the Republican candidate because I know that they most align with my views. I'm a Christian. I'm a conservative. I am. A constitutional, I should say, a constitutional conservative because I believe in getting back to the small but strong form of a federal government that our founders intended for us and really an emphasis on state power and local power. That's really where our decisions that affect us most should be being made, but right now our federal government is just completely out of control. Now, as a constitutional conservative, that means that I'm not a fan of federal level education policy. I've talked about this for other topics, but you guys should know this if you listen to my show. By now, the Tenth Amendment of the Bill of Rights designates anything that's not specifically assigned to the federal government and the constitution to the states. So anything that's not listed directly in the constitution is a state power. Guess what's not listed in the constitution? Education. So for a very long time, education has been handled by the states, but it was only in the mid to late 1900s that our federal government really started to take and put their hands all over state level education. So what we saw with the creation of the Department of Education in the 20th century. And the massive influx of federal tax dollars into states, it was said that it was needed and it's still taught in schools today that we need the Department of Education because some areas of the country. Don't have as much money, don't have as much tax resources to properly fund public schools. That this is all an issue of, ah, they just don't have enough money. But what I'll show you in a little bit when we compare the funds of different states like Florida to New York, you'll see that it doesn't matter how much money these blue especially states get from the federal government are from their own states. If you have a poor process that is focused on pleasing the teachers unions, pleasing the pension funds of all of the administrators, all of the people that aren't even teaching, educating children, that for some reason have these weird, wacky jobs, and none of it is really being invested in improving the education of the children as in the core purpose of a public education system, you'll see if the system itself is broken, it doesn't matter at all. What kind of money you throw at it. It's never going to work. The children will never improve in scores, and they will always struggle, and for some reason, the teachers unions every year

"Got a good episode today and that's because it's about one of my favorite topics, education. I wanted to dedicate this show specifically to education and teachers unions and the mess that is going on there with the mix of education, the educating of our kids and the nasty politics of our time because President Biden just did a speech at one of the biggest teachers unions of our country. It's the national education association and everybody's kind of talking about it right now because if you're going to speak to a teacher's union, one of the biggest ones in the nation, you should probably talk about education, but instead it was a hyper politicized conversation and speech with the crowd all about other political issues. And so it really just hit the nail on the head as an example of visual example of how ridiculous the involvement of teachers unions and again things to educate our innocent children have really become when it comes to playing the dirty game of American politics. So I wanted to kind of break it down for you and share some information that I found in my research along the way over the last few years. So with that being said, let's get on into it. All right, before we get into the topic, I want you guys to know. If you really want to know what the left's real plan is for your kids, just look at the reaction to the work patriot mobile did in multiple school districts in Texas.

And this isn't just the birds and the bees talks, but what they're teaching is outrageous.

Just leaving it to die on a cold metal tray. This woman is a monster, she's the most radical Democrat running, I believe, in the entire country, and we can not let her win this race in Arizona, our border will never be secure.

Biden Chose the Unions Over Our Kids

"Iran, Bret baier was telling me a couple of weeks ago on his show that it seemed to him that the Democrats have made a big bet. Their big bet is on semi fascist and fascism in the red setting speech, and that they're just going to stick with this despite the overwhelming rejection of it. I don't think they are sticking with underlining the student loan bailout because the president has had three opportunities to talk about that. He did not talk about it in the red setting speech. He just didn't even a week earlier, this was the greatest thing since sliced bread. They got a week of blowback from ordinary Americans saying, are you out of your mind? And then they've dropped it, but it's too late. It's a $1 trillion and it's inflationary. It's too late and what we've seen you since then is Herschel Walker took a lead in a poll in Georgia. We've seen lax salt within one O day in Colorado within one. We're seeing movement after that decision that the Democrats may pay off a $1 trillion student loan debt for people who willingly took that debt on, right? But our kids and I'm one of them who were kept out of the classroom who had no choice who couldn't get the education they deserved. They're behind in math. They're behind on their SAT and ACT scores. And it's going to impact them for their lives and Democrats said, we're going to pay off these loans because maybe this will lead to vote instead of helping these kids who are policies have left behind and made them collateral damage because of our loyalty to the public unions. And the teacher unions. Not the teachers, the teachers are working hard. It's the unions that the Democrats are beholden to. And the unions definitely show they don't care about our kids. I

Minneapolis School Board Plans to Lay Off White Teachers Before POC

"Story I've been wanting to hit for the last couple of days, but there's been so much breaking news, but it's a perfect time right now. And this is not an isolated story. This is spreading all across the country. Now, when I say this, the media they lose their mind when I say the following. But every single person in the audience, you need to listen carefully about this. Because if you so happen to have white kids or grandkids, they are entering a country where the policies and the rules very well could be rigged against them. Minneapolis public schools defends policy to prioritize retaining educators of color when determining layoffs. Now that is the nice wording. This is the puff piece way of describing what this is. This is ABC News. So I'm starting with the nicest possible wording, how they try to brand it. What does this really, how about this one? Minneapolis teacher union plan will fire white teachers ahead of people of color. That's right. There is a new policy that has been put in place for the Minneapolis school district. It is an agreement between the Minneapolis teacher union and the Minneapolis school district that says they will lay off teachers based on their skin color. They'll do so to lay people off to give priority to people of color because they say it will remedy the effects of past discrimination.

"The latest manson's our positions are constantly evolving in response to the latest that we know about and so randi weingarten is the president of the american federation of teachers. Which is our national umbrella organization so we certainly follow you. Know what what they're suggesting as well in conversations with folks throughout the nation and really having to evolve in each neighborhood specific in boston we have seen high rates. We've seen a communities of color disproportionately impacted and Whereas every think local community does need to figure out what's best for them for higher s. community like boston and again we want oliver students back at school in person to do so. We have to have as many mitigation purposes possible and that includes protecting many were medically fragile students who will be back in schools as well and so yes it. Our position has certainly continued evolve in it will have to evolve as we get new information and have to adapt to the latest of what we know. Yeah you mentioned. Some of the boston specific concerns there. We know from the white house that about ninety percent of teachers and staff k. Through twelve across the country vaccinated. Do you have a sense of what percentage or or how many faculty staff and be vaccinated right. Now we don't have that exact information we'd love to get it and we are confident though that the vast majority of our educators vaccinated and again remember. We had to fight really hard the spring after after educators. Already back in person. Even just get Access to vaccinations and so We were able to work really closely with the city of boston and bphc Sites going so that as soon as president biden had said that they are available we were able to hit the ground running and those thousands of slots were immediately. Feel very quickly and so. That's how we know that there are certainly a high vaccination rate amongst educators. But are there those who have not been vaccinated yes. I'm sure if that is well. I'm curious we've talked a lot on the show about a as were all kinds of reopening in in different ways mandates versus education and incentives. In terms of encouraging. Folks get the vaccine. Are you or members of the union talking to folks who are hesitant or who do have concerns about getting vaccinated. Those conversations happening absolutely in fact. We had a meeting just this morning. And we've really been advocating for how we get not just the education out there but also the opportunities so you know there are folks who i think do wanna get vaccinated but just haven't had the opportunity or don't know where or how or just really there's a lot of anxiety in that's that's real in. So how'd we help support those folks who do but just need that extra little support or access and that includes for young people in that is not a concern..

"Already feel it in the air back to school season is here and i mean students are across the state or just a few weeks away from returning to classes fulltime and in person but as we're packing those backpacks and sharpening those pencils. You don't need me to tell you. There are a whole new set of concerns for parents to think about thanks to shifting policies on mask mandates and the continued rise of the delta variant and on top of all that. Ah battles now brewing in classrooms over whether teachers and staff should be required to be vaccinated against covert on monday head of the boston. Teacher's union jessica. Tang said she would support such a mandate joining others in that call including national leaders from the american federation of teachers and jessica. Tang joins us now to talk more about it jessica. Welcome back to radio boston. Thank you for having me so. Let me start by just asking you. Why have you come out and supported. mandating vaccine for teachers and staffs across bps. Sure i want to clarify that. While we do support a vaccine mandate we also support regular testing for those who for various reasons can't get back stated or aren't there yet in terms of their comfort level but we are looking at a lot of data. We've been talking to you. Know not just experts from the afc and if l. cio but also city health department officials leaders of diaz logistics medical professionals and. The evidence is pretty clear. Now that even if you are vaccinated you can't spread. The virus and those who are vaccinated are far less risk of getting severely sick or dying but those who are unvaccinated which is majority of students particularly in our elementary schools and Them living with family members who may not be vaccinated to that. It's it's a the. The risks greatly outweigh the benefits of. I'm sorry the opposite. The benefits greatly outweigh the risks. Now you know as much as it's an inconvenience for everybody you mentioned testing. Do you have a benchmark in terms of how often you'd like to see that done in. Are you talking just about unvaccinated or everybody regular testing no we are talking about specifically for those who are not vaccinated and again we are still in conversations with a city health officials and bps. About what that regular testing may look like but again you know when dr wolinsky was here last friday boston from the c. d. instead we know how to keep students safe and not even just students but staff and our larger community and that is vaccinations in masking and testing than we have to follow the guidance of of those who are most experts on these topics. No i'm curious. If this has been an evolving position for you and for the organization on sunday the president of the american federation of teachers randi weingarten said on meet the press that basically hunger organization kind of changed course on a vaccine mandate for teachers. Here's a little bit of what she said. I do think that the circumstances have changed and that vaccination is community responsibility and it weighs really heavily on me. That kids under twelve can't get vaccinated. Jessica is this something that you've always thought is is a necessary step or is this a kind of a new opinion for you and for you. Well honestly i think through the last year and a half we've constantly had to keep up the latest research..

"So while you were enjoying the hopefully your family your friends maybe some grilling which by the way. I don't know if you saw this or not. But a new development shows that grilling is terrible and we must ban all outdoor grilling food. I pretended to debate. allie beth. Study about this on fox news. I think that was on friday evening. Jesse waters while you were hopefully enjoying your nation in your country. The people that educate your children were conspiring now. Before i get into that. I just wanna show one point of data to frame the urgency of this particular issue. A poll published on monday. Yesterday found that a majority of young people do not identify as being proud to be american. The poll conducted by issues and insights and tip insights found that among young people ages. Eighteen to twenty four thirty six percent said that they were very extremely proud to be an american. We're thirty five percent. Said they are not proud at all to be an american on a two hundred and forty fifth anniversary. I'm reading from the blaze dot com of american independence. A sixty eight percent majority of surveyed. Adults said they were extremely proud to be an american. So you have thirty. Four percent of young people proud sixty eight percent of adults. How did this happen. What happened because of one of the organizations that have been tasked with educating your children that have been running the government schools in our country. Now you'll i do not call them public schools. They are government schools. They do not exist for the public. Good they do not exist for anything that is decent or true or beautiful instead they exist to reinforce the power of the state so while you were maybe on a lake enjoying some fireworks guests who hosted a conference. That's right over this last weekend. The national education association conference held their event from july second to july six their last day. Today now let me just say this would kind of sick and twisted self hating apparatchiks host a conference over july fourth weekend. Who does that. I know people that want to lay under the cover of darkness. While decent americans are celebrating our separation from the british crown in our founding the marxist that are teaching your children they are plotting and planning of course they are in denver. Colorado what is it about self hating white liberals that they just need to continue to congregate in denver. Colorado major league baseball all star game. Which by the way we have a very fun thing that we're about to announce a major league baseball all star game. I can't tell you what it is but it's going to be very fun. You will see it. Hopefully i think next week is the all star game right where the i don't watch baseball anymore. They've decided that. They hate america and have fun in the mostly white city of denver colorado while the black businesses in atlanta georgia struggled to make ends meet so the national education association. Conference the nea. I'm going to be referencing. This acronym any many times throughout this hour. So it's the national education association. This is a teacher union organization. It's the largest teacher union in the country. A represents over three million public school employees in all fifty states so over this last weekend ending today that held their annual representative assembly with delegates from across the united states voting on priorities and allocate funding. So they have three million people that pay dues to the national education association. Now thanks to the janice decision. Thanks to the united states supreme court's decision. If you or anyone you know that is part of the teacher. Union is paying dues. And they don't want to. They can now voluntarily withdraw their dues. Let me say that again. Most teachers do not know this but teachers you do not have to be part of a union anymore. You don't the. Us supreme court has weighed in on that. Many teachers are lied to and they are deceived by their fellow teachers or by their administrators so they held this massive conference and while most americans were enjoying leisure time and going on lake when ataka or maybe they were in broken bow oklahoma or maybe they were in fayetteville. Arkansas saying i love my country. And i might not like joe biden but at least i want a couple days to remember how it used to be. Oh not so fast. My friends the serpent's in the grass the plotters and the planners and the people that engage in treachery. They were fast at work. You see the national education association. They made some announcements over the weekend. Certain resolutions that were approved. The national education association announced on saturday evening that they had approved funding for three different initiatives related to critical race theory the national education association which represents three million public school education. Teachers in. all fifty states have agreed on increasing the implementation of critical race theory in the k. Through twelve curriculum. They've agreed that they want to promote critical race theory in every local school district across the country. The national education association has come out and they've said that they are going to attack opponents of critical race theory including organizations and conservative research centers so effectively. The national education association says they're going to declare war on turning point. Usa good luck. We'll be waiting for you coming after conservative research centers. We work weekends. You don't good luck. The national education association went on to say that this is a large break and we are now going to have to double down on these ideas and these attacks on the anti-racist revolution that is happening. now. I'm going to read the specific resolutions here of what the national education association has put forward the people that are tasked with educating your children. In fact in particular to new business item thirty nine past by the national education association. It's adopted.

"Randy. I wanna ask you about something. It's been very much on my mind. In light of the debates over critical race theory in the sixteen nineteen project a number of states have adopted or proposed legislation that would prohibit the teaching of certain points of view or at least what they those statutes try to present a certain point of view now at one time. It was an interest of unions teachers unions and of many individual teachers to fight against legislation that would restrict what a teacher could or couldn't teach in the famous scopes monkey trial which involved a so. You're not a union but nevertheless the original party there was the teacher who taught evolution allowed himself to be convicted of teaching evolution in order to produce a test case claiming initially a free speech rights to teach whatever he wanted to teach now. That's not exactly the way the law has evolved. But i'm wondering from the standpoint of your union when you see laws that are passed that restrict. What teachers can teach say. A certain point of view cannot be taught. Do you take a stance against that or do you see that as sort of part and parcel of legislation and lots of states that dictates curriculum and that therefore appropriately tells teachers what they can't teach now we take a stance against that we take a stance against that for a few reasons one. There's a big difference between k. Twelve and higher education in terms of the freedom to teach in the latitude over academic freedom. So we know in the main that in pre k. Through secondary through high school state laws require a certain curriculum and we should have latitude within that curriculum to meet the needs of kids however this has become just like i would say the biology versus the evolution debate that was exemplified by the scopes trial. We're now into a moral issue and the moral issue. How do we teach honest history and teach the truth and what these laws are actually doing is that they are limiting what our kids will get and mostly helping our kids become critical thinkers and so i think that mark milley head of the joint chiefs of staffs said it incredibly well when he was getting roasted about why. The military would engage in conversations about diversity and inclusion and dealing with racism. He wanted to understand white rage and he wanted to understand why there would be this kind of insurrection. On january six that could have decimated our democracy and that is the same thing then. A high school teacher would wanna to do for our kids. We would want the weeks after january six to try to understand it to impart that understanding to our students not to tell them what to think but to give them the skills knowledge which means that you have to look at an issue from all sides including what has happened in terms of our history that necessarily can make people uncomfortable. So what has happened here. Is that in this zeal to have a cultural war. What the what these laws are going to do are going to actually stop us or attempt to stop us from helping to teach kids how to think and to understand history. This is more reminiscent what they would do in china than what we should be doing in the united states. Can i just ask before we close randy. How reciprocal do you think of this issue. As being so if there are teachers who teach perspective on say the history of race in the united states. That you and i would substantively disagree with and think is wrong. But which is a perspective of opinion of interpretation of facts rather than facts. And they're in school districts that have curriculum that requires a different approach. An approach that. Say you are ni- favor would you similarly or would the unions similarly support the rights of those teachers to express their opinions in the classroom. There's a difference between going. Be try to be very clear about this. Telling kids what to think is not our job. Engaging kids in understanding critical thinking and being able to discern fact from fiction is our job and so there are lots of different viewpoints in terms of this work but basic integrity basic honesty about facts. That have happened in the past. There's a line there so for example. If someone is a holocaust denier. I think that is inappropriate was. That's a matter. I think we can agree. That's a matter of fact right. So the issue here is. You're talking about for example take sixteen nineteen is that a fact that in sixteen nineteen was the first year. That ships carried enslaved africans to this country and using that as a jumping off point. I think that's perfectly appropriate. The issue about whether or not one then teaches. Is there systemic racism in each in everything that we do. I think that's something that happens in law schools and something that happens in higher education but in k. Twelve we start with the fact of what enslavement was and what that means and what the effects have been so answer is i think. We have to have a wide berth. In terms of whatever people's personal ideology and opinions are but ultimately we teach fact and the consequences of those facts not our personal ideology randy. Thank you very much for your fascinating. Commentary there and more importantly for your hard work over the last year and four.

"teachers union" Discussed on Deep Background with Noah Feldman

"A a significant of how public sector unions justifiably exercise power. Is it not so as a member of a union noah who actually pushed for reforms in new york city that are members could no longer run for school boards. I think that's a false equivalency in a false reading of power. I think that the issue has been that in the private sector. We are down to less than seven percent of people in unions and therefore we don't have the density that we used to have in terms of community. I think the issue is that what unions end up doing. Both in the public and the private sector is that we try to get people who are pro working people elected in positions of power. So i think that that's just a canard that is used to try to undermine heavy unions. Throughout the nation from the standpoint of classic marks in analysis unions were an attempt to solve the social problem of the struggle between labor and capital to at least more more. Moderate people influenced by march. Let's save socialists or social democrats labor unionism. Seemed like it was supposed to be in. It's glory period. Say up through the early nineteen sixties a kind of semi permanent solution to this struggle. Now as you said. Fewer than seven percent of private sector workers are unionized and that means that capital has one just a tremendous victory over labor. So isn't that a tragedy from the standpoint of labor. I mean doesn't it tell. The story of labor unionism as mostly having a succeeded for some period of time but then historically no longer continued to succeed with public sector unions almost as a kind of accidental survival. Because they're not fighting against capital directly. So i'm going to. I'm going to answer it in the same way as i answered it before because i think that the labor movement in the united states is different than in theology the labour will been in the united states was about trying to create a voice and trying to empower working. Folks actually have a bigger piece of the economic pie and in modern labour parlance those of us who have been in the public sector when we have higher density. We have better outcomes in terms education. You see it in terms of massachusetts versus mississippi. And so what i would say is in the private sector when you have higher density you see it in terms of higher wages and things like that so if the public good writ large is how working people can have a better piece of the economic pie how they can have their piece of the american dream then unions are aligned with that and are trying to make that happen but if you don't have enough density you're not gonna make that happen economically.

"What also happened is that you see the inequality of how cove it affected people because in black and brown communities where covert affected people. Much more lethally you see much more of a shared understanding and frankly in poll results. We've seen we've done parent polling with several other groups. There's overwhelming support in that polling for educators for education unions and for public schools. So i think you saw a real divide based upon how cova did actually impacted people's personal health and their communities personal health in places where it didn't have the kind of impact you saw.

"This is deep background to show where we explored the stories behind the stories in the news. I'm noah feldman one of the most remarkable controversies around the exercise of power that took place during the entirety of the cove. Nineteen pandemic was the struggle in the united states between teachers in some jurisdictions. Were afraid to go back to school because they were concerned about catching cova and some parents who really wanted their kids to be back in school. At the center of these debates were teachers unions themselves one of the most significant remaining forms of labor unions in america today and also in certain respects among the most controversial to discuss the question of public sector unions power kovic nineteen and where we're going on. This complex of difficult issues were joined by randi. Weingarten randy is the head of the american federation of teachers. The second largest teacher's union in the country that makes her one of the most powerful visible and vocal union leaders in the united states. Today and she's also a person who as a lawyer as powerful understanding of the constitutional and legal issues around unionism as well as the history of unionism and it's rise and fall randy. Thank you so much for being. I wanna talk to you about the grand topics that you've been so engaged in over the last fifteen months but i also want to go to the bigger picture. I don't just want to talk more. About covert and closures. But i want to talk about what has happened to unions both private sector in public sector unions over recent decades. What that's meant for the power of workers taken as a whole so. I guess the place. I want to start is with kind of middle level question having lived through and been essential actor in the very intense debates around school closing in school openings. Do you think that the power of at least public sector unions like The t. has increased or decreased through the process of the last year. And a half. That is a really good question. I think that understanding of who teachers are and what they need to do. The work to help students has increased. And i think the needing to have organization and a union as a philip randolph. Said so many years ago as a way to create power that has increased certainly amongst workers if you watch what the right wing does. Certainly our power has increased but oftentimes what the right wing does is to pretend. We have far more power than we really do to try to slay that as opposed to actually listen to what we're saying so unbalanced. I think the answer is yes. But it's certainly not enough power to actually ensure that working people and working communities particularly parents kids and those who make a difference in their lives like teachers and emergency medical workers and meat packers and things like that had the safety conditions that they needed for us to actually navigate through coveted. Better than we did. Is it fair to say randi that in just about every case at least the ones that i know of teachers unions in the end won the fights about back to school. I don't know of an instance. Maybe i'm wrong where a union was essentially coerced back work. When it wasn't ready to do so or do. I have that wrong. I think where there were unions. That had decent relationships with parents would superintendents and in states that understood. That safety was a real concern. Like safety was the way back in. I think that we did win because we were able to show that safety was the way back into schooling not the obstacle to schooling. But there were lots of different places across the country where there are no unions and where governors pretended that. Kobe didn't exist but where there were unions where people saw that safety willie was the way in. I do think we were able to reopen school. Safely for impersonal. Learning the issue about in person learning was never the debate and dispute any educator. Pre cova would have told you how important in person learning was. I do think that kovin has made the case for why unions are important because who else is going to protect the safety and wellbeing of the workers and of the people who use public services and who use prog manufacturing services like beat processing plants ready. What do you think of as the costs of those victories. So i hear you saying in the sound sensible to me that both for people who are in unions and for people who need them but aren't in them. One of the big lessons of cova was without a union to protect you. You can be put in a situation where you have to return to the workplace under conditions which you don't experiences safe and that seems like a powerful argument on the other hand. There was pretty clearly some public backlash at least among upper middle class parents about the thought that the school unions teachers unions were too powerful in the sense that there was a genuine dispute about whether kids should go back to school in when and as you were saying the unions did for the most part win those fights now obviously one of the things about exercising powers. You can't make everybody happy all of the time and you have to act on behalf of your constituents but i'm wondering how you think about the overall costs to teachers unions of the victories that you want again conceding that they were victories and also that it was probably good that you one. Nevertheless there are still some real world downsides so look i think that the fact that you saw the tensions between parents and teachers who really terrible this is part of the reason why you hear me hesitating when somebody says is it. A win is at a loss. Teachers want what kids need. And most of the time if for us to be successful in educating kids parents need to be our partners so when you see dissonance in that and that there was a real disagreement particularly you saw in upper middle class households. That is a real problem and we need to reconnect together. But i think.
