We're Frustrated. What about YOU?

"Today in our feminist. Utopia governor cuomo resigned and stops kissing young women at weddings or stops being garbage. Human being. I mean he created a toxic work environment not just for the women s but for the men that worked for him to. But we'll get to that. Yes chalet recording on national women's day last year we were on a boat celebrating international women's day with an all female crew for the first time it was amazing and i wish we were back on that boat. We were in a bubble of just being pampered and surrounded by powerful women and it was amazing until covid happened in. it wasn't so amazing and instead of being surrounded in a bubble. We were worried that we were surrounded by five. Rhys but i i was worried. They were gonna cut seattle off because trumpet actually made sounds like well we just isolate seattle. It will spread. We all know how that turned out and happy international women's day. I guess we can start out with some good vibes because today on international women's day joe biden has signed Two executive orders geared toward promoting gender issues. The first executive order establishes a gender policy council within the white house and it's Reformulating that office from the obama administration that was disbanded by trump. But this one is going recognizes. That discrimination happens to both genders. So i think that's a positive thing and we hope that that will lead to more equality not just in the united states but around the world and then the second executive orders directed at the department of education and it Reverses the controversial rule on campus sexual assault and harassment that was issued last year by betsy devos. Donald trump's education secretary. So these are two Positive advancements and we will applaud those with some good vibes and biden also signed an executive order About election rights. And so we'll get into that a little bit more than we talk at the end of the show about. Hr one We can't count on executive orders to save us. But at least women who are on college campuses or more protected now because of that executive order and i am really glad that biden chose to do it today. Yeah we're gonna go from good vibes to pet peeves. I decided Section called pet peeves because this has been highlighted in the news. And it's really annoying me. People miss naming the george floyd trial. It's not george floyd trial. It's derek chauvin trial for the killing of george floyd and we should know derek chavez name as a murderer that he is and when you miss name it and call it. George floyd it places the blame on the victim and causes more pain to the victim's family and misses the point. I think we need to hold. Derek chauvin accountable and make his name famous for being murderer. I think it's the perfect example of a micro aggression that even progressives make without thinking about it and when ted bundy headed trial. We didn't name his victims. We didn't say it was the kimberley trial. It was ted bundy trial. But in this case. I think this is one of those little deep seated things that we don't think about until someone like you pointed out like i hadn't thought about it until i read it in today's research but i hadn't even. I didn't even in all fairness i didn't know the trial was starting so i didn't even know that but we'll do hell no hell of a time finding jurors so the 'cause the videos out there like the Selection process started and then it was halted. There's some concern about whether it's going to be a second degree or a third degree murder charge. So yeah they. They were going to add the third degree murder charge to make sure he doesn't get off on a manslaughter charge. Just go to jail for three years.

Student loans in the United States

Student loans in the United States

"Roughly 44 million student loan borrowers haven't had to pay anything on their student loans since March. This grace period offered as part of the coronavirus relief package will end on January 31st. That deadline was originally December 31st. But last Friday, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced that borrowers would get an extra month of reprieve. But for many That's still not enough. I'm unemployed, and so I am concerned about not being able to pay my loans. I'm 61 years old been paying student loans since my twenties. If I were having to pay my student loan right now, during the pandemic, it would be to 36 a month. I have a lot of loans that air coming up for repayment, and I'm really worried that don't have a job yet. Asselin, who has recently completed grass school and who lost my job in July. Here. I've been grateful for the paws on student loan repayments. I just don't understand how we're supposed to pay off our loans. When the situation hasn't really changed. I don't have full time work and the payments are pretty steep. My parents willing, is $1400. And what are we supposed to do? This month's installment of dollars and cents. Our monthly personal finance series. We're talking about student loan debt, joining us his Alvin Hall. He's a financial educator and author of several personal finance books. Alvin, It's great to have you back. Also with us is Cara Perez. She's a financial educator and the founder of Bravely, Ah Financial education Company, Carol. Welcome back. Thanks for having me and we're also here with Susan Dinar ski. She's a professor of public policy, education and economics at the University of Michigan. Susan Welcome. Thanks for having me. So Susan first put the problem of student loan debt into context for us. How big of a problem is this in our country? We have a lot of people in debt, and we have some people who are having trouble with that debt. Since we've got so many millions of people who owe student loans, even a small proportion of them having difficulty adds up to a lot of people in trouble. How long has this been a problem? And is it getting better or worse? It was sort of important shift that took place during the great recession in about 10 years ago, where Ah lot of people who have the past who had not borrowed began borrowing folks who are going to community college is, for example. On BOC's who would tend to drop out after just a year or so. And default rates just went through the roof on. We haven't even completely recovered from from that period. So I would say, you know, we had student debt around for a long time. It's been affecting more people and causing more defaults, especially since three session, Keira. We heard from several people at the top who are out of work and who student loan payments are starting back up. February 1st. How can someone without income pay down student loan debt? What are their options? That's a great question and one certainly without easy answers. I think the first thing that anyone who does not have any income and is looking to make actual payments needs to do is sit down and assess their savings and understanding my trying to pay this out of what I currently have tucked away in savings or investments, or am I looking To do something like, ask outside of my finances to make these payments, But I think that more importantly, the question shouldn't be If I'm unemployed. Should I be trying to make these payments? The question is, if I'm employed, where can I find employment? Because once you have money coming in, it's going to make everything in your life, including paying your student loans much easier. We got this message from Kara on Facebook on Lee federal student loan borrowers haven't had to pay during the pandemic. I lost my job and still had to pay my student loans. I told my loan provider that I lost my job. Got the payments postponed until May, But I still have to pay $150 a month for the interest. What about private loan borrowers? Any thoughts? Yeah, I think the first thing that people should do is get in touch with their lone bar are their lenders. Justus carded here to figure out if there is a lower amount that they can pay or if there is some sort of grace period that they qualify for. Really, They're stuck between a rock and a hard place, right. If there's no money coming in money cannot go out. And so it really falls on these companies to understand we're in a global pandemic that the U. S. Has not handled particularly well. Can they work with their Lindy's so album for someone who is struggling? Who is working but is also struggling to pay for food and housing. Is there any advice you can give on how to start chipping away at their debt? Yes, I must tell you Agenda this, uh, the subject sits deep in my stomach because when I graduated from school in the seventies it was doing Great recession and I was in very much the situation. I had no savings. I had a job. The job was unstable Income was low. What I did during that period of time I took Another job. I took a job working in a department store selling men's furnishings, the nice words for men's underwear, belt and socks. And I would allocate as much money as I could. From that job. A job I really didn't like. But my purpose had to be to pay something on these loans because back then you did not have that many options. The other decision that I made during that period of time, which I was told everybody about was that I looked at the program of loan forgiveness and discovered that if I Heart in a particular school and a low income neighborhood or something like that, Then some of my loan would be forgiven. So actually did that. I took a job in what was then on area where the school was in the program, and that definitely helped repay part of my loan. So I think you have to be creative because Didn't have savings. My parents couldn't help me. I did not have a safety net. I'm thinking about the latest job numbers that came out and they were much lower than expected. And so for people who are maybe struggling to find that first job right now, or You know to secure income. The idea of finding a second job might feel particularly daunting album. It was daunting then, but If you are not proactive in some way. In handling this, then you get more depressed. It becomes more overwhelming. So you can call the student the government office on student aid and try to re negotiate. But Robbins and just sit there, it's good to be proactive in some way. So at least every day you're making one step forward toward a goal.

How are changes to sexual harassment rules working in schools

"In May, the Department of Education made sweeping changes to title nine regulations Peter Medlin with W J reports on how colleges and universities are coming to terms with new policies. Many advocates in school officials say will chill reporting the new regulations changed the definition of what qualifies as sexual harassment under title nine to meet. The new standard harassment must be quote severe pervasive and objectively offensive. She Wa Patel is the Director of justice for students survivors at the National Women's law center. So these rules kind of in total really just turn title nine on its head as a civil rights law says they raised. The threshold of what schools can choose to ignore, and it's a departure from guidance that's been in place for wrong twenty years if a student isn't being outright denied equal access to a program or activity that might not be enough. So that means some substance would be forced to endure repeated an escalating levels of abuse before they can get help. The new rules also require institutions of higher learning to dismiss reports of harassment the happened off campus. Now, they'd had to put together a separate sexual misconduct policy to apply to those situations. This has ramifications for online harassment especially as many schools move to. More virtual instruction during the pandemic faith Ferber is a student engagement organizer with no your nine. She says, if someone's harassing you in a class zoom meeting that would be covered but if someone is sexually harassing you over facebook and then you have to see them in the zoom classroom that wouldn't necessarily be covered a northern Illinois University. Title Nine Coordinator. Sarah Gardner says they do have procedures to help students. We had the opportunity to see okay even though it doesn't reach this level of conduct how we address it as university but as faith ferber says the problem is that places like and I You could ignore those cases that they choose to, and she says, the Education Department isn't there to protect students either we can't count on our schools can't count on the government. So all we can count on is students and student power to really make a difference in holders schools accountable at a you students held protests last year on the basis of the university was mishandling investigations and the process was slow and apathetic. The university hired another coordinator and Garner says, they're much better equipped to handle their case load. Now, the new regulations are over two thousand pages two, thousand, thirty three to be exact and. The policies themselves fit into the last thirty pages or so the reason the document is so long as so that the Department of Education headed by Betsy Devos is trying to justify why the chains are needed and respond to public comments. She Wally catalysis says there were more than a hundred thousand comments mostly opposing the new rules they were school principal. There were mental health experts over nine hundred trauma specialists joined a letter and raised concern about the rule. So the significant opposition and yet they continue to move forward Sir Garner A, you were one of the many schools that Senate comets harshly not. Many concerns made it into the final regulations. Patel says, the provisions were largely unchanged from what was proposed, but there were also a few changes that weren't even in the proposed rule. So they didn't have a chance to comment. One example is that colleges and universities are now barred from dealing with complaints by people who aren't actively participating in an education program that means a school won't be allowed to investigate a complaint of sexual harassment if the survivor already graduated or they transferred or let's say they dropped out of school because they were sexually assaulted and they don't plan to re enroll and colleges. Could dismiss cases when the respondent who's being accused isn't enrolled or employed by the school but tell that could include professor who retires or who resigns after abuse comes to light. Another chain that wasn't included originally reiterates that the department's guidelines supersede any state law and some of the new title and changes are in conflict with Illinois. State Law one forces those going through an investigation to undergo cross-examination in a live hearing and as Sarah garnered I says, we have a state law that says, you cannot cross examiner one another. This is the price sexual violence and Higher Education Act however now, the federal. Regulations. You must cross examine each other in public comment. It stated that this quote turn educational centers into courts of law and allow for parties to be subjected to quote demeaning inappropriate, and irrelevant probing there waiting for the Illinois Attorney General. Kwami Raoul away in he along with seventeen other attorneys. General is suing the Education Department to block the final rules from going into effect. Garner says they'll find out if they have to proceed with the guidance on August fourteenth there are countless other issues advocates say make the process more difficult for the people involved and for the school conducting the investigation and Peter Mullen.

"My mother thinks that rush limbaugh. Yoda you know what? Saying? She's always saying well, rush limbaugh says. Our rush had a great monologue. It was just on point. Oh it's he so tuned into the Culture Rush Limbaugh g listen to rush limbaugh the other day and of course I know I don't listen to rush limbaugh. I did fifteen years ago. You know I was a Ditto head actually read for you a chapter about right wing radio on the broadcast I read it out of my book couple of weeks ago. But I wanted to come back to this because I feel like it's Really been on my mind and it's hugely relevant in today's culture. We've got a whole group this graphic of these pulpit pounding Bible Banging, rush, limbaugh right, Wing Radio Listening Evangelical 's right the Christian Nationalists and they're screaming the name of God is they use their religion just to be Shitty to other people. May I've noticed that about a lot of these guys limbaugh Michael Savage, etc. they're just nasty people. They are always being cruel to other people there pushing buttons because they can. They're stoking the fires of outrage and they sit back and bask in the ratings and the advertising dollars and. All the way to the bank. There's this I think it's a myth that rush limbaugh is himself a Christian. I. Know He likes to speak the language of Christianity. I'm not convinced the Guy Cares at all about the Bible or religion of any kind and back I'd love to sit them down and give him like a sixty second Bible quiz just to see how much he really in fact I'd like to sit most the evangelical 's in power. Donald. Trump I'd like to give him a Bible quiz. Let's just sit down and let me quiz you for a couple minutes. Betsy Devos loved to talk to her Ben Carson Rick, Perry all these people in government are banging their. Bibles I would love to sit them down and asked him basic questions about their faith. But that's a whole other conversation. Today's conversation is with the director and producer of a film called the brainwashing of my dad, an ambassador father who SORTA got sucked in to this rush limbaugh right-wing Radio Christian, nation, kind of narrative focusing at the very least and narrative that sort of others, non-christians, sort of sets them off in their own little box while the moral righteous people are sitting over here. Now, the film itself is not new. It's been out for a few years but I referenced it in my book and I just it's been on my mind because. There is so much of this going on and right-wing radio. I don't think it's ever been more popular. There's video of this conversation. I am going to play some clips from the documentary during the broadcast. These clips add a few extra layers. So you can kind of hear the angle that she's taking Gen Sankoh Director of the documentary film, The brainwashing of my dad. So glad you're here. Hi Seth, it's nice to be here. Give me like a resume real fast the types of work that you've done before the brainwashing my dad. Sure. Will I started out as an artist and a painter? But then I felt like I wanted to reach a wider audience and I just started making films but they were always sociopolitical. The Sue. The first one was roadmap warrior women about really independent women that I met out west and then the second was was. co-director with fury derosa the vanishing city. About the lecture vacation of New York City. But also how it's happening throughout the world and cities coming less affordable and right now I'm writing a book. Also called the brainwashing of my dad. Got Picked up by source books so I can always tell you more. Fun, I mean. Let's go back to your dad. You didn't grow walk in this sort of right wing I mean I know limbaugh started back in the eighties but I mean, you didn't come from that sort of hardcore conservatism. nope. Not at all my parents were what I guess. I would describe as very liberal, very open minded. They were Kennedy Democrats and they were also like FDR Democrats they came from the depression. So FDR them was a hero who pull them out of the depression they most remembered hoover and felt like he didn't do anything but they were really enthusiastic about. And I think they were quite devastated. When he was assassinated. But yeah, they were they were I would actually list describe them as hippies before hippies same. We're very open minded My Dad especially loved talking all different kinds of people very non judgmental. As you probably saw the film, you know one time in this is in the sixties. We came out and port. Authority. We're visiting New York. For the day and there was a a black homeless man and she US Monday for some money my dad called him Sir had a conversation with them. And gave them like a couple of coins or two, but you know so they kind of thing made an impression on me that. You know accept all people and jobs.

Former Republican Governor of Michigan Endorses Biden for President

"Endorsed Joe Biden for president. He said President Donald Trump was not covering in the interest of the entire nation. I was at the nation's Capitol when Trump gave his inaugural address. I had hoped this first speech as president would be a message to unify divided nation. Instead, I heard a speech directed at how It would help the people who supported him. And sadly, that is how President Trump continues to govern. That's what he wrote in the USA today and then the free press governor. Snyder also criticized the president's 2017 tax cut and said Trump's foreign policy had produced some good agreements, but overall, our nation is no longer respected as a leader on world affairs. Jonas is Dick. Hey, Verner, Dick Wei talked a little bit about this yesterday. You weren't terribly surprised by this, But we're gonna have former governor Rick Snyder on in a little bit. And there are a few things I'm curious about. And one of those is and I wanted to get your take on. This is If the Republican governor doesn't like trump, and clearly he doesn't. Why not suggest ah, not endorse anybody? Or maybe endorsed some other great Republican as a write in candidate just to show your displeasure with the president. Why go so far as to Endorse a Democrat to endorse Joe Biden. Is there something about Joe Biden? He likes so much that's going to make him a great president. If he's just making a statement that Donald Trump is not not his guy. Why not endorse whoever his favorite Republican is as a writer? That's good question. That's a very good question. Because the governor Snyder says he is still East still considers himself Are Republicans. So why vote and why come out for a Biden, for example, his good friend John Kasich ran for president. Then he dropped out. Why not write in John Kasich as Hey, has the person he votes for? So that's a good question. Another good question would be what Policies of Trump. Does he support He can't be against everything that Trump has done has got to be something there that he likes because they're both Republicans. And he, after all, is the governor who several years ago. Boosted supported ram through and sign the lot. The right to work law in Michigan, making It's a ah ah, situation where we're workers that Aaron, a union covered by a union contract can drop out of the union and still be covered. By the terms of the contract, something that unions viral it Lee against. He was the right toe work Governor. So that was a very conservative move on his part, something that would be ah. Aligned with what the Trump administration is done on so many issues, So yeah. Ah, you raise a very good point, And I think I think that there's just something much bigger than this. I think I was reading a little bit of cut the Lincoln Project Republicans against Trump, but they are I think they're going to be coming out. Today, with maybe hundreds of businesspeople, politicians, people who say they've been Republicans for a long time coming out and say, both for Joe Biden. And that's just interesting to me. Why they don't voice their displeasure against Donald Trump More than vote for Joe Biden does. If you're a true Republican, wouldn't you think? Four years of of the Democratic president would do more harm than four years of president. Republican president that you just think is a jerk. Basically. Yeah, well, I'm I'm sure that you will have the freedom to ask that question of the governor also if the governor comes out again Against President Trump. And for Biden, one of the high profile members of the Trump administration is Betsy DeVos. Betsy DeVos, who would have been a Big Snyder supporter Back in the day one. Snyder was governor. This would seem to Ah cut off the good relations that he would have with Betsy DeVos, Dick DeVos and the DeVos. Organization and forces in Michigan. What what does he Snyder Ah. Think about that is he Is he through with the divorce is or can he maintain some sort of a friendly relations with them, even though he comes out against Trump If it comes out against Trump, he comes out against Betsy DeVos. Right and I also wonder does does this make Republicans think twice about voting for Donald Trump? Or does this make Republicans think less of Rick Snyder? Well, I'm not the judge of that you had you had posed the question Previously. Does this persuade Republican voters? I'm not sure that people look Any more at the endorsements of anyone. In fact, sometimes I think when we hear about a political figure endorsing somebody else for office It's quite a Ah, it's quite a bodacious action on their part, thinking that they're so important that their endorsement is is needed. Bye bye. The voters that we just have to know who they support or who they don't. I'm not sure that Snyder, even even the endorsement of a governor. Ah, former governor is that important to voters anymore? Republicans or Democrats cave after

"You know for ten years I was a high school teacher high school history teacher, and I look forward to the beginning of school year, every single one of those years and I could not imagine not being able to do my job well. That was a few years ago. Things have changed now. We have this pandemic. A crisis that we have a lot of schools, a lot of states that are afraid to reopen the center ring of conservative circus. We add the secretary of Education in the United. States Betsy, Devos and Secretary Devos. Does it appear to you as it appears to me that this thing is political, and that Democrats want to rob our kids of a good education. Well Good Morning James We know that kids need to be in school and that they've lost mumps of learning this spring in all too many cases, and we know that kids can go back to school safely. It can be done safely, and in fact, more and more studies show that kids are actually stoppers of the disease, and they don't get it and transmit it themselves, so we should be in. In. A posture of the default should be getting back to school kids in person in the classroom, and for those who have an underlying condition or some concern that keeps them from that. They still have to be able to learn full-time. We cannot afford to have kids missing and losing more and more months of education. Is there anything that the CDC has identified as a reason not to open these schools up? No none at all. In fact, quite the opposite. All of the medical experts are continuing to say that kids should be back in school. They should be back in their learning environments, and in fact for children's health, it's important for them to be in school for almost all of them to be in a classroom and with peers and with their teachers, and as you know as a former. Former teacher, there's nothing more important than that that were poor that relationship and that and that you know what what results in social emotional growth and development from being in school with peers.

US Education Secretary. Betsy Devos doubled down on Donald Trump's insistence that kids can safely returned to the classroom. Health experts say there are too many uncertainties and variables for back to school to be back to normal. Children infected with corona Venus a more likely than adults to have mild illnesses, but their risk for severe disease and death isn't zero. The American Academy of Pediatrics WHO's guidance. The trump administration has cited to support its demands says the goal is for all students to be physically present in school bought. It adds district's must be flexible.

Donald trump has threatened federal funding cuts for districts that don't fully reopen.

MOSQUES, extra cleaning, supplies or janitors, additional classroom, space and mental health support for students and staff traumatized by the pandemic are among potential costs. And with more

"President Trump's calls to reopen schools in the fall. Even as the Corona virus pandemic is continuing to increase nationally. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was on CNN's state of the Union. Insisting that schools can reopen safely, where there are little flare ups or hot spots that could be dealt with on a school by school or a case by case basis, And there's there's ample opportunity to have kids in school. Miami Dade School Superintendent Alberto Carvalho was on NBC's meet The press. We are looking carefully at the CDC guidelines. We are consulting with the Health department, and I think we came up with a reopening plan. That quite frankly lifts the best possible practices for implementation with aggressive mitigation strategies when those practices are impossible to implement in Miami Dade, Florida, said a new one day record for confirmed Corona virus cases with more than 15,000 on Sunday, CBS News Update.

What was her name, Dave? Oh, that's Davis. You've say to say what you say h s. Are you? Sorry, Betsy DeVos. Thank you. Devos for you had the old the DASS ity to stop funding. Special Olympics are cut the funds by seventeen and a half million, which is not shit for the United States. You guys been that in a fucking second. Let me spend I pulled this up, which is interesting yet. So it was like seventeen point six million, which is nothing that they that they were gonna cut that was in Trump's original plan, and then Betsy DeVos was the one that's actually like advocating it, and she got a blonde shift for this taught tons. And she stood behind the decision, so she said still stood behind. I'm still gonna go for me that they're not protecting their own fucking people. What was her battle our battle with? It was that it was all ready funded through donations. It's not enough. I'm not agreeing with that was heard that was her. Well, that's what she yeah. That's what she thought I pulled it up, just out of curiosity. How much does Trump's proposed border wall? Cost twenty one point six billion dollars. One thing that's hard to hear seventeen point four billion go fuck yourself. Your that's like that's like go fuck yourself as like a like a. I don't even know like a sliver of a mile of fence. It's almost like it's. They just left a tiny piece off the end of it. It's almost like the wound up their dick and slapped Special Olympics people in the face with would that goes back to point them.

And then they get the depressed in later, come suicide. This is happening though, quite a bit with different communities. Like another thing I saw was Jon Stewart was actually advocating our. Nine eleven first responders, and they were sick from inhaling all the fumes and the, the smoke, like they had a lot of long health effects. Yes. And the government stopped funding them. So it's like, you know, people like nine eleven like are people who fought, you know, now, you take this one this one, this one, whether it's whether it's Special Olympics or nine eleven. I watched John Stewart. I wish we talked about this on the fucking video..

"Let me introduce Hilary Shelton. He's senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the end of the Lacey pe- he's director of the ACP is Washington bureau. Hilary Shelton. Thank you for joining us. I appreciate it ethics. Great to be with you. So tell me what you're hearing in this conversation in what your take so far. If he were to give education secretary, Betsy DeVos grade, what would it be? Well, let's let me hold off on the great for just a minute Matali about some of the fixes and then we can decide great accordingly. Okay, we'll make this evidence-based, took out like that. Thank you, MS. The number of concerned pad as Mr. Voss's gone into to serve as secretary of education. I have to be honest until you and transparent as well and say that the NWC p opposed her confirmation because our feelings concerns were that are backed bounded experienced into lack the expertise necessary to handle issues a public education from pre k. through twelve. And of course, other big issues for the NWC Pierre concerns like higher education. I began hearing some conversation along those lines as well as the about the affordability of higher education. And he was talking about private higher education in institutions and the like, and some concerns we pay along those lines as well. And the n. AA CPA is also involved in a suit against DeVos. Right? Yes. Why don't you tell us about that? Because this is about civil rights laws right in the way they're the the way that they're imposed. Absolutely. Absolutely. So the NWC Pia Fata lawsuit along that friends at the national federation of the blind and the council of pant attorney. He's an advocates against US secretary of education and the department of education office of civil rights in the US district court in Maryland for the departments because the department road back, I mean, the civil rights enforcement regulations, we thought were crucial to making sure that every American regardless of race, ethnicity, points of national origin. Any other differences are even disability would have an opportunity to get a high quality education. We concerned the department of education pretty much summarily change the policies allowing for the dismissal of civil rights complaints, and the ability of organizations to appealed their rulings. So what that means is that we've actually cut out -tunities to make sure that it's known if an institution is discriminating because of wants differences and other challenges within our society and very well organizations should have an opportunity to file lawsuits when necessary and to appeal decisions. But the changes that have happened now at the department. Of education through its office of civil rights actually moved to make it much more difficult and even a limited opportunities along those lines. We're actually hold on Hillary because I wanna bring max into this conversation and max. What are you hearing an in Hillary's concerns about enforcement of civil rights regulations in the department of education? I mean, these things are are a balancing act, and I think the balance became way out of wack during the Obama administration. Right? He's talking about making it easier to Smith civil rights complaints, which you should be able to dismiss a civil rights complaint if you've spent years and years investigating and found no evidence of wrongdoing, but under the way the Obama administration do these investigations, certainly something like school discipline, it's it didn't matter whether or not you actually found any evidence of discrimination. These so-called investigations were actually an enforcement tool to core school districts to change their policies. So I think that these things are a balancing act. It's not about rights versus no rights. It's about how. Do we, you know, balance trying to make sure that students have a an appeal if they feel that they've been screwed it against without letting that become car 'blanche to have the department of education, rewrite local policies. So Hilary Shelton if it's about a balancing act, your concern is the balance is gonna little bit too far in the other direction. It's well. That's certainly what he's arguing, but I would argue that quite frankly, will be done now with these changes, it means it without they made these changes. Let me just back up for just a second without going through the legal required notice in comedy period, the would prevent the piano, the organizations to voice our opinion before they made these public changes..

"So during the September speech at George Mason University, she announced a new approach to campus sexual misconduct. DeVos repeatedly emphasized the plight of the accused here. She is one rape. Is one too many. One assault is one too many. One aggressive act of harassment is one too many. One person denied due process is one too many, though a secretary of education, Betsy DeVos. Let me introduce Maxine and he's a senior fellow at the Manhattan institute where he focused focuses on education policy Maxine and welcome back to one point. It's great to have you to be Anthony. Anthony, I know you've been listening along to this this conversation. How would you sum up so far? What Betsy DeVos has brought as secretary of education? Yeah, I think US early in the are with the grade would be I would give her a b minus. I think that she is taking the federal government's role in a more modest and quit, frankly, productive direction. But unfortunately, the things that she is doing require a lot of finesse and explanation and and kind of power persuasion that she hasn't quite been able to to muster. So I think that while what she's been doing, it's been substantively productive. I think she's unfortunately kind of discredited a lot of the, the, the reasons behind the, the approaches he's bringing to the table. And how so are you saying that it's essentially, this is a this is a question of of messaging as opposed to policy commitment? Yeah. I mean, I think that it's not as though it is only this kind of far right wing that was opposed to the Obama administration's. Very heavy handed approach and education. You know, the only major bipartisan Bill of the Obama administration was the every student succeeds act in which Republicans Democrats got together and said, the federal government has gone way too far in education. We need to trust teachers. We need to let them figure out these decisions. We need to trust local school boards. We need to rein in the power of the department of education, and that's something that was overwhelmingly approved in congress, but it's a message that she can't quite carry forward without becoming a lightning rod. So in your view, Maxine reining in the power of the department of education. Can you point to one specific effort that Betsy DeVos has made where you know there is a concrete effort to rein in the power of the department of education that makes sense to you even if she hasn't carried it out or delivered a clear message on why it's important? Yeah, absolutely. So one very clear example is what's called the significant disproportionality regulation and the yes. And there's a lot of this kind of language in the world of education. But go ahead, say it one more time. I just want to the significant disproportionality regulation, significant disproportionality regulation, explain that. So the Obama administration looked at the statistics around race and special education and thought that African American students were over represented in special education services and therefore wanted to create a formula that would pressure states to reduce this alleged overrepresentation. Right. Problem is research. The came out after that regulation was put forward says that actually, once you sufficiently control for enough factors there actually significantly underrepresented, do you have a regulation that's in place based on faulty data that would be pushing states to further serve already underserved demographic and the secretary as you know, thus far put that on hold and should rewrite it, but in the process hasn't been able to, you know, make a case as to why this numbers based approach it as. Misguided and she's just kind of gotten flack for, you know, ignoring potential discrimination over critics, say around special education at indication. Let's take some calls.

"Faulting on their loans. We're going to these four profit colleges, and so the Obama administration created these rules that said, you know, if you're graduating students that are not making a lot of money and or taking on too much debt that they can't repay. We're gonna shut you down. We're going to cut off your federal money and and we reported last week that Betsy DeVos is planning to repeal that rule to sort of let you know for profit colleges operate is that used to write and this these these rules Obama wanted to put these rules into effect after the collapse of to for profit colleges, Carinthian college in IT technical institute which collapsed. They collapsed in two thousand fifteen in two thousand sixteen, and they were found to have misled students with false advertising misleading claims that kind of stuff. So these were rules essentially to protect students from this kind these kinds of alleged abuses. Right. Exactly. That's cool. We're saying, you know, if you. Through this program, you're, you have a ninety, nine percent guarantee of getting a job and students were enrolling in taking on huge amounts of debts, and those things were just turning out to be flatly not true. And this is also led to lawsuits by a whole bunch of attorneys-general across the country. We're going to be hearing from one of them at the bottom of this hour. But essentially, what is the case that these attorneys general are making. Well, they are saying they're suing Betsy DeVos because she is trying to repeal both the the game full employment rule, which would shut down some of these worst. The worst of the worst colleges, you know, the ones that really are not graduating people with any kind of earnings power. And then there's another rule that I think we'll get to in a moment that that she has sort of rolled back where students who went to colleges that defrauded them or allowed to actually ask the government to forgive their loans, and she's a sort of tried to make that process a little tougher. Right. And why is that? What's the argument in favor of making that process tougher for students who feel that they were defrauded? Well, there's a serious concern. You know the the money on the line is taxpayer money that these students are taking on forgiving, all of it sort of willy nilly is really going to cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of not billions of dollars. And so you have to be very careful. The other thing is that the government really tries to recoup money from colleges once they've once they've forgiven loans. And some of these four prophets were saying, well, the the process that you're using to determine whether we've defrauded or students is arbitrary. We're not really getting a chance to show the case that it was. We weren't lying, but it was that, you know, we're being wrongly targeted. And so some of the schools were being asked to pay sums of money that they said they couldn't afford. Now, another issue, the department of education physician interim guidance on how colleges should investigate and penalize sexual assault under title nine, which prohibits gender, discrimination in education. Can you talk a little bit about how she is dealing trying to make those changes? Absolutely. So for years, you know, President Obama had set out these rules governing how campus sexual assault cases could go on college campuses and the. A lot of, you know, specifically accused students, but also more broadly of of lawyers who were saying the process that you're setting up is really one sided and unfair. You know, it didn't some cases the rules. Let victims you know, ask questions of their, you know of the people they were accusing, but not vice versa. And so you know a lot of lawyers and accused student advocates were saying they needed to sort of level the playing field to give accused students more rights for the process. So it's fair to say that Betsy DeVos enter policies. Anthropology proposals are controversial. There disliked by a lot of folks who work in education..
