Why We Need International Students
"And. We've been planning to do an episode on national students visas and the education system for the past few months. It seems like an underreported topic that people should know more about, but then it became part of the news. Students. Who the schools plan to online only classes in the fall, we'll have to transfer or leave the country or face possible deportation several prestigious American universities are now suing the trump administration the trump administration back down but I don't think it's the end for what we might save from this administration. You could be forgiven for thinking that student visas classic partisan issue in American politics liberals pushing for cultural diversity in a more open society while conservatives warn of dangerous to national security American jobs. But the real story is quite different for decades Republicans and Democrats agreed that a steady pipeline of the world's best minds into American. Universities is essential for our economy innovation and competitive advantage. But the rest of the world it was a system that largely worked. The trump administration has taken a different perspective and the pipeline of international students in into American businesses, hospitals and research facilities has begun to constrict as this happens other nations have begun picking up the slack. I'm Gabrielle Sierra and this is why it matters today international students and American competitiveness under threat. All right. So I'm a student in another country. Why do I want to come to school in the United States? I mean if you look at the list of the world's one, hundred best universities more than half of those are in the United States you know if you come here and you graduate with a degree from top American University, that's worth a tremendous amount throughout your life. My name is Edward Alden. I'm a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations I'm also the Ross distinguished visiting professor at western Washington University in Bellingham Washington. All is a leading voice on immigration innovation and US competitiveness. He spends a lot of time studying the contributions of immigrants to the US economy. secondarily, even if you're not coming to the best institutions in the United, states has a global reputation as a dynamic innovative place, and if you were a talented ambitious foreign students, it's a place you wanna be mean finally education is in English and English remains the universal language of business. So. To the extent that you come out from an American education with a strong grass with the English language. That's something also going to be very helpful in your life. There are liberal arts colleges, their research institutions, institutions, large and small that can cater to many different types of learning and covering many different styles. My name is extra Brenner. Director and CEO OF NAFTA THE ASSOCIATION OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATORS So, bright soon around the world know they can come here and get a great education, and perhaps the most exciting things is the dynamism of the American classroom. That is very rare that idea of having an interactive classroom where students and professors are talking to each other where the learning is shared it's not just the professor lecturing I'll tell you as someone who is a former professor I, love that environment and indeed it something where we even put out a publication on introduction to the American classroom to help students get used to the idea that they will have to defend their ideas. Okay. so you decide you want to come to school in the US how does the system actually work? What are the options for getting a visa? Well you need to be admitted to the university that you wish to attend. So that's the same thing in American student would face. You have to apply to the university and right your admissions essay all the things that American students do when they want to attend a university. So if you are admitted than you need to apply for what's called an F. One student visa, the visa does not allow you to remain in the United States permanently does not allow you to work for income with some exceptions while you're in the United States temporary visa that permits you to come here and study. Alongside the F one, there are also J. One visas and a few other lesser known options together they account for roughly one point, one, million foreign students in the US for anyone who's done it or help someone do it? You know that apply to college is not easy even with some assistance from family or a guidance counselor. For an international student, it also means traveling to an embassy or consulate in their home country and going through a meticulous and costly process to get a visa. And, it isn't as though they get to breathe a sigh of relief once they're accepted or even after they arrive. For many students may be their first time out of their home country. Maybe their family has all saved up their money to send the bright child to the US that's a big commitment by the child in the family when they get to the United States, their institutions, of course, comply with the law and some people may not realize but every international student is actually in effect tracked by institution and there is an official. At each institution that has to know where that student is and be able to file documentation on them. So unlike any other visitor to the United States business travelers only international students are actually recorded and tracked with that level of detail. So the student has a lot of obligations a lot of costs and their institutions have additional obligations as well. It's a big commitment of very big commitment, but it's a life changing

"Even parents can sit there and give opinions on what exactly, they think should happen or legislators Khun sit and say every exact thing that they want to happen with reopening but teachers of the ones in there every day, So to me, their opinions are more valid than anyone else's. I've a friend who is a teacher and a parent. And when her daughter's we're going back to school, see sent the administration. It was like 35 questions that she had about their preparedness plan and what she could do moving forward in the air. And what was going to happen if situation a BCD happened, and because the teacher she had all of these things that were on her mind that probably weren't on anybody else's Yeah. And look, this stuff has to be thought through in a really serious manner because you've got teachers potentially underlying conditions. You've got faculty who might be going home to somebody who is potentially a risk for some severe, some severe symptoms of covert 19. You've got Kids who could potentially have asthma or diabetes, or, you know a number of underlying conditions that could put them at greater risk than other kids. So this is, you know, it has to be handled in a very delicate way. And the final thing I want to touch on when it comes to schools, Pinellas County High schoolers Are gonna have to wait until the end of the day. Eat a full lunch, seven different high schools. The district allowed schools toe opt in to the end of day grab and go lunch, and so far, seven out of the district's 16 high schools have chosen that option. Schools will make available at least one snack break between classes with mobile carts operated by PCs. Food and Nutrition staff set up throughout the school. So their snack bags like a buck, you get a snack. But then, when it comes to Lunch. You gotta wait. Can you like you're going to want to try, But I tell you what teachers didn't get a big enough raise. You try to keep kids in line with social distancing in the face mask while they're angry. Exactly, And it's not even just about being starving by the end of the day. Also, you need a little bit of a mental break. School is very monotonous. You sit there and you're learning and you're just listening to your teacher and your six feet away from all of your friends all day long. You need to have a little bit of like a cool off period. I would. I would literally counting the seconds to live one side. Not even like it eats lead. I can chat with my friend for a second and relax finally, but Exactly. I think the problem is the cafeteria. It's just gonna be a difficult situation to get all the students spaced out, and so this is probably the easiest way to go about it, and that's why they're doing it that way. Coming up next. We're going to talk about this back to blue mural outside Tampa Police Department headquarters. It got two faced.

"That's the sound on the next generation of voters cheering quote too old quote unreasonable socialists got stuck up on ponies because they're coming at you to get them those complicated in but yeah yeah we gotta hey librarian you made us laugh free t shirt from shop ty dot com yeah yeah super fast on the the whole amending the the second amendment thing like like i know that that people who are very pro gun would hear that and they get really scared like oh they're going to take away all the guns and some people might might want that version of it but i think honestly right now if you're pro gun the second amendment is far too vague to actually protect your interests because who knows what the next set of judges are going to interpret it to mean or not mean he interpretation has changed so much so i think whether you're pro gun control or your four keeping the current status so you want to open it up the current second amendment serves no one with the way that it's worded and so it desperately needs to be amended all right anyway moving on we've got a little bit more guns for you one of the only policies that consistently at least recently many in the gop are willing to support to extensively do something about gun violence in schools is to flood schools with tens or hundreds of thousands of additional firearms and you saw that with the recent bill in florida where they want to arm thirtyseven thousand teachers and donald trump is a big fan of that the nra is a big fan of that if that were to happen federally than you're talking about potentially a million or more extra guns in schools now the problem with that policy is what if that were to lead to more accidental shootings coming to demonstrate that for you this week is teacher at seaside high school who accidentally fired his gun in class injuring multiple students so this teacher and i want to be very clear about this was a reserve officer for the local police department and it'd be trained previously in the use of firearms multiple times over the course of years this is a gun adept teacher as donald trump would say the teacher fired the gun into the ceiling.

"Yeah i'm so luckily they live in an african country like tanzania where they're civilized and developed unlike in america where we have to worry about nonstop massacres of our children so that's the state of world affairs right now and that's no joke that's absolutely true so so i mean the in israel of the internationals american international school there also participated but if you think about it we're far less safe in america than students in israel are so i think roughly the chances of getting hit by a rocket launched by hamas is about ten thousand times less than the chance of being killed in a school shooting in america or an or no mass shooting in america so look you could do the math on it yourself is what over thirty thousand gun homicides a year in america the the number of people killed by terrorism in israel's far far far far four less my point isn't a terrorism isn't a real threaten israel my point is that the gun violence in america is ten thousand times a greater threat to us in our kids and we go on about our lives like oh everything's fine right and we don't care about a foreign terrorists no the thing you have to worry about is us terrorizing ourselves with guns at a scale that the world has never seen where other countries like tanzania look at us and go oh my god who would wanna live in a violent backwards place like america that's where we are right now and that's why they're doing the walkouts and that's why it's super important finally the columbine was a a huge marker for when we perceive the mass shootings at the schools to begin the reality is there were school shootings before but it was on such a big scale that at the time we were not used to.

"So far the prohibitive favorites for turk of the year so far because of what they've been able to accomplish and as we will talk about later on this is just the first in a series of upcoming major events actually in not too many more weeks we've got the big one in the march for for to save their lives in dc but i want to talk about some of the particular marches very significant schools took place in colorado students at columbine high school they participated they did thirty seconds of silence seventeen for the dead and parkland and thirteen for the debt of their own campus which i believe is nine as i said nineteen years ago there's coming up they're going to have a march on that particular day too but what's amazing about that is that you have kids who are participating in that march at columbine at the walkout who weren't born when columbine happened but this is still a problem that we're trying to deal with and there's been almost no actual progress i mean hell at least when columbine happened there was an assault weapons ban that lapsed several years later we don't have that again we seem unable to get that again but also walkouts were expected in newtown connecticut where twenty six people were killed at sandy hook and there were also international marches i saw in london intens ania with one teacher at the tanzania a school saying that thankfully we don't have an armed civilian population so we don't have to deal with this but they have empathy for those who do in israel and iceland one school had planned to but it was unfortunately too gold but we still have the thoughts the tanzania quote was the one that really struck me i'll give you the exact quote it was we are lucky to live in a country that is relatively gun free so it's not something that our students have to think about said teacher courtney park.
