Shocking recall election observers was born. Now Sharon post, call one 800-6843 11 secular books happen in San Francisco happen your town or city in your school district last night San Francisco parents recalled three members of the city school board. They were recalled because instead of focusing on reopening schools core curriculum math, science, reading and writing. The parents in San Francisco said there was too much focus on social justice too much focus on race. A school board that spent deliberating for 17 months. While schools were closed.

They deliberated not on how to reopen schools, but on how to rename 44 schools that if they wanted to do that at the same time as reopening again it San Francisco not being replaced with right-wing Republicans. There, but even in San Francisco. The parents said you don't care about our kids, not you, not thinking about you. Number one client here. The families the children who have to be prepared have to learn how to read and write these other issues of social justice and embrace that does come much later and you gotta get those basics what you just to understand when you think about your own school district right now and you cut it. If you're fed up he think that you don't have control. You might not have recalls where you are.

You have elections in San Francisco. These elections results were massive.

For instance, the school board President Gabrielle Loper Lopez, who was recalled 74% of voters voted to remove her from office VP, 71% in one of the other commissioners 78% listen the reason why the entire school board was replaced just because four of the other members were yet eligible for recall and they're arty nervous.

Listen to this.

This is Jenny Lam who is one of the school board members who wasn't eligible for recall yet she says this was a wake-up call quote with this evening's election we change course.

We now must move for to focus our energy back on students in our schools. Think about what that means. The reverse there energy wasn't focused on the kids and their whole job is to be the school board so San Francisco schools were closed for 17 months during that period rather than the focusing on reopening of the schools it's meant months. The school board deliberating about how to rename 44 schools including one name for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the board argue also about gin changed abruptly their admissions rules to specific high schools switching to a lottery system instead of merit-based, then the superintendent of the San Francisco unified school district quit was for the persuaded to come back only after board members agreed in writing to focus on reopening schools. So here was the problem and that's what we did our school initiative during covert. We helped over 1500 families because they weren't, they were using it as an opportunity area for social engineering, absolutely. And this process has been going on for quite some time. It's important to keep in mind that what we are seeing from the left is an attack on merit in favor of so-called social justice.

This attack not only victimizes Blacks but Asian-American students and indeed all students often social justice quote unquote is advance without using terms such as social justice or critical race theory instead left wing school boards have focused on inclusion F no mathematics, and tolerance which are simply a cover or Marxism.

That's a deal. Tolerance shouldn't be covering when you have read through your kids curriculum you see those words, you got it that that the light bulbs need to start flashing on the press right out with my daughter look at schools with these curriculums you see those words now and you say when I will know the morning is not a bad word conference, but Ledbetter teacher they are using it. Local control is the key. We had some initiatives that we talk about that we come back. Local control is the key sticker phone calls to one 800 68 or 31,000 your school districts. The challenges facing Americans are substantial time and are now in our freedoms, our constitutional rights are under attack is more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades now ACLJ on the front lines protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress to get in the public arena and may have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms than remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you and not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition like it will show you how you are personally support, and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the worship ministry and what Obama care means to the pro-life in many ways your membership is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission in life today online ACLJ/this can happen. San Francisco were parents. 74% decided to recall the present, the school board and they also recalled VP and one of the commissioners reason the whole school board probably wasn't recalled is because four of the school board members weren't eligible yet for recall having served long enough to be recalled now I'm talking a lot of you don't have recalls necessarily in your districts might affect local ways to impeach local waste removed. We always have elections and what it shows is that you might live in a red state and a red County but your school board might not be reflective of that you can make a difference. These are the most local of local elections are not expected on extremely expensive and even the mayor of San Francisco Maryland and breed said the voters of the city have delivered a clear message that the school board must focus on the essentials of delivering a well-run school system. Above all else, what is all the else was San Francisco parent saying X repeat that because everyone knows there's a very liberal place socially and economically.

His parents said he spent way too much time on renaming schools on social justice and not enough time on teaching like you had a read and write and do math and science and as Harry said even trying to politicize math politicize science that is not what get your kid to a good likely college which is what the supposed this prep preparation is the mayor of San Francisco also said who was one of the most prominent endorsers of the recall Mayor Breen said that were fighting for what matters most, and they were the parents were their children. Now this was overwhelmingly a number 74% 71% 78% in favor of a recall and you look at this and then medicine are studios in the media center today, so it's great to have here but you look at this.

We have fought and I will never forget the first initiative we undertook at the ACLJ when the pandemic with covert start was we knew they were closing schools. We have got to help parents and we had a meeting or conference room and we help well over 1500 families all over the country. But local control means local control and lipids are starting to understand then that little local control means local control. While this was a message with the school choice initiative.

Jamie from the very beginning, our topline message was that parents should be in control. Parents have sent a clear message all across the country. We don't want our school district to dabble in things that aren't education based. We want our schools to educate our children and Jake and I were talking about this before the broadcast. This is an even really a right or left issue because I'll tell you the parents that voted in this recall election and supported the recall are probably going to support a curriculum that looks different than the one that I would choose right.

But what we said in our school choice initiative and Jordan had this up for us is that's okay.

In fact that's good because parents should be in charge. Remember how Terry McAuliffe running for the governor of Virginia lost his race with Sarah should be telling schools what they should take. I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should take.

That was it.

That was it is not a broad and Randy Weingarten had the teachers exist to issues at play here.

There's the politicization of every subject and there's the teachers unions.

What this shows is that you can cut through the power of the teachers unions by replacing the school board members who often times were their campaigns in the Internet about huge amounts of money, but their campaigns were funded by the teachers unions because they took an interest in it. If the parents who are there's a lot of appearance in the art teachers. There's a lot more parents when they put their resources together and vote and show up. There are teachers unions power so you can flip the balance where this is been heavily favored towards unions and political causes, and even if San Francisco parent say enough of this. I just want my kid to learn. Get a good education. All this other issues you learn about later as you progress through education like that said those sepsis coparents. I guarantee if you give them curriculum choices. Most of our listeners right now probably matches the curriculum they would like, but it's the curriculum that best reflects those parents and families. And that's what parental control means it doesn't mean right wing control or left-wing control.

Ultimately what you're doing is saying it's definitely not unions outside political influencers and control what you saw that in Chicago where the teachers union embedded themselves with refusing to open up even when the health operations in department health in Chicago said yes. It's a program schools. The union didn't want those teachers back in the classroom and finally broke from because the parent said enough. This is affecting our kids. This is affecting our economy is affecting our family.

These are issues that cut to the family and also it cuts across party lines.

These members that were taken out of office were taken out of office by a primarily Democratic voter base. I would know question San Francisco one most progressive liberal cities in the country.

They took their school board out by 70% plus margins which tells you the between his door and said the union which was on Chicago and what's happened here, Harry parents voice matters and that's why McAuliffe lost in Virginia and young can one. I think that's precisely correct and so just to reemphasize a point that they had made earlier.

We need local control, but more importantly we need parental control. We also probably need school vouchers, but we also need on school boards, individuals who will follow real science real history real political science and real opposition to teachers unions, who typically want to get paid while staying at home.

I mean, that's basically what we've seen over the last couple of years that even when health experts are saying. Teachers can go back to school rooms safely.

They have preferred under the leadership of Randy Weingarten. They have preferred to stay at home and so if you look at the election earthquake in Virginia now followed by the explosive results in San Francisco. I think parents have sent a real message to both politicians and to teachers unions. Keep in mind many teachers unions they don't actually favor any real teaching. Instead, they want to focus on social justice which is not going to prepare African-American students to do well in math and so instead of focusing on merit and instead of focusing on the real education we are focused on pure politics to talk to everyone out there your your kids are great is maybe go to a Christian school, maybe they're homeschooled maybe don't have kids dropping Fort all of us are paying for this education so we all have a voice here.

Everyone has a reason appears especially, but your your vote is the just the same because you're paying for with your taxes and when your taxes were paying San Francisco to pay for renaming instead of reopening people spoke up as if she question Timothy writing on Facebook and I mean I think you go a lot different ways or when did education become such a partisan issue politics within public school education has been an issue, but it's probably since the history of public schools death in our country quickly made the civil rights movement ACLJ doing that's 1970s and 60s civil rights 1970s, but certainly today will be saws it.

It's a different level of political engagement like math became has become politically everything to be completed on the part of justice. Remember, was the start investigating parents that were go to school board meetings, demanding that the school board to be accountable nagged.

I doubt seriously merit Carl, I hope not to go out to San Francisco and start an investigation since they overturned their sitting school was a conspiracy of the right to know. I don't think of this is telling you somebody tells everybody something shockwave and all this and then you deal with politics all day. Is this was not partisan. None of this is been partisan parents right left and center are saying enough teach our kids how to read right and arithmetic J not partisan among voters, not artisan among parents. I'll tell you I still think there's a pretty significant divide nationally among the parties that the voters, the parents are saying were unified on this. We want to control our own school boards but you think about how the sweat from Virginia to San Francisco Virginia is historically a swing state right is trend in blue recently but the fact that there was a switch there might not have been as earth shattering, but this J 78% for a commissioner of the school board and in San Francisco there is unifying parentage, unifying the fine voters I'd say this that you Jordan. As we head into 2022. There's an opportunity and a challenge for both parties.

Here it's clear what voters want. Which party or maybe both parties which party will answer that call and I don't usually quote the Washington Post in this kind of large said, but I will yet the fact is there but they do realize crossing and they said the recall election is the latest signal that mainstream voters not right or left mainstream voters, even a liberal city like services going from frustrated with public schools during the pandemic education particularly struggles with covert measures and racial justice is expected to play a prominent role in elections across entry results in San Francisco offer another warning sign for Democrats to embrace the teachers unions embrace radical left policies instead of just math, science, reading and writing in people paying attention right now and you can have surprised election results all across the country because people had enough with these elected officials were bought off by outside interest right back only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable and is there any hope for that culture to survive.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We've created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition life will show you how you are personally pro-life support and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the end what Obama care means to the pro-life discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right to life question free copy of mission in life today online ACLJ/challenges facing Americans for substantial time with our value freedom sword constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stand with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades ACLJ has been on the frontlines protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress to get in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.

But here's the bottom line we could not do her work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.

Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn about her life changing work, become a member today ACLJ secular. We are taking your phone calls to 164, 31 to shock you to discuss that the rockets were overjoyed. Right now my former Secretary of State or senior counsel for global affairs Mike Pompeo might ask about that a bit but I do want to get to what we see in this week Sec. Pompeo's news all over the place with different narratives about the threat of Russia actually attacking Ukraine would like a full-scale invasion. There were reports it was going to happen today is also report the Russians pulling back troops.

What you read about where this stands as we speak.

You made it the right math important boat on their western blank Ukrainian border of Belarus so that the rest that you decide to extract records that measure something from the last something but did not think that will make that he would stop around paragraph a may well be a but I don't think I don't like the moment – but they could tell intent on pushing a biometric around thing how much you can get from them that they continue to show weakness question Mike present gave a speech it was yesterday. As an update to the diplomatic efforts any unsolicited warning, he supported thruster proceeds. We will rally the world. Now, thus far, the world doesn't seem to be very united. In fact NATO doesn't seem to be very united in Germany's stone silent because they want the Norton force the gas line to go through what's your sense of what the President said yes and how would you handle it if you were the present idea.

I think you're right.

I think that he was working not letting a matter fact I think your bid. If that one. The Baltic that that one view as well. When you the good work that you did in Europe with each day that this is not a monolithic block for your the German same intent on trying to find a way not to have to stand up to write here weatherwise but not restricted by blind Mark allowing you to run roughshod over will probably their political there is deep division with Europe and II watched Secretary-General of the NATO Sec. Jeff Goldberg make a good man trying to rally the animals but that that Allstate leadership from United States and it is been vocally absent seasick present time. Jesse said that this could be days, weeks, months, and I look at what Rush is doing is it part of the stretching and again they do have the IQ said the resources to invade if they want to is also like if we surround if we can just around the country with 100,000+ troops and we just keep that show called the world will keep making concessions. So in a sense, without invading they get what they want and so I saw that the ball it seem like the cam was kicked down the road a bit. Even in his own remarks still still warning that could happen. A moment but also that it could be months long that we could see and it Artie has been months long so could be continue on this kind of chokehold of Ukraine.

I remember when I spent time with the web I got a part of a very elaborate object or minister of Russia they didn't have a stopwatch. They were determined to continue their appetite think they saw this JJ Dr. Brenda Biden said that the Darwin of opportunity began to exert more pressure until he finds the result they haven't seen that yet you point exactly right. Without fiber tech yesterday very significant insight of Ukraine that are repercussions for American companies that are doing that. There is well. Stop. But I don't expect the unit back in May bring the division back or most of equipment out of deliberate.

I don't expect that the any reduction in our blood report that the applied pressure against the United States and Europe until the United States demonstrates that the press conference is not very speed to do actual deed that were prepared to take risk… That I should doing so that the data that they deterred the strength of event states the continued push us around the things that is interesting here is I think Mike that the plan was part of what he was trying to accomplish, and maybe he has accomplished was to weaken NATO and fracture NATO and just like asymmetrical warfare and that you know like I used a quote from Disraeli often was, as you know this diplomacy can be more depending on how that diplomacy is used when he has. He is fracture NATO, at least in all appearance it is fractionated of the sector defenses dealing with that in Geneva today, but if that was a goal has put already accomplished one of the things he wanted to do. Every time you germinate conflict with the problem in Europe and North America grid about the country study at he is accomplishing a purpose he is sending a message to the world that this this body for NATO or the US transatlantic alliance is weaker than everyone think that it don't forget to even as this is going on in Ukraine get what going on in other parts of your specifically Indiana where the edited sitting on the same side of the table with the Russians and the Chinese negotiating with Uranian so displaying a a multilevel game is like a very strategic effort and that what's what's missing what different J) report have been changed. Why did this happen for the last four years. The dates were changed by the American resolved leadership that that's the thing that is fundamentally missing here and whether it's caving at appeasing the Arabian door allowing their records to shut down the pipeline and the topic part of our country for three days did not gas the people at the event date is the things that bad guys, authoritarian indicators, they will work alongside them together to undermine our country and American interests switch getting domestic for little you travel the country work with a lot of candidates right now across the country are talking about is talking to voters every day.

We know where the top issues is for its parents in education, what's happened in the public schools we saw last night in San Francisco. Sec. pumping up and do something amazing, where voters they're not particularly conservative just parents were thinking about their kids voted 70+ percent to recall the school board President, vice President, and the one commissioner was subject already to a recall and they did it because he said they were school board spending too much time on social justice, racial issues, renaming schools instead of reopening schools this message. I know you're traveling the country. I think it's it's it's not just in the most liberal say it's all across the country. Parents waking up that they do have the power. If they speak up and they shouldn't feel scared to because the department just tries to label them as terrorist. A rural environment from small… I want one thing to get the wand available in the American way of life and have it get there just a little bit better than they did. They saw the last two years that the kids were being taught garbage think that working out the two, but they led really for the department to talk about was what grace that that don't work for anyone does not work for any parent, so he can't at the disco. It happened in my hometown, Wichita, Kansas, where we had school board members thrown out it was just enough of the silliness of mother part of the whether political, it was about making sure that the most important institution right places. We teach our children is actually delivering on that outcome.

Forget all across the countryside doesn't provide me what happened yesterday.

As always we appreciate your senior counsel for global affairs for the ACLJ team because you folks are supporters side that's assimilated significant pumping is not to similar joints on the broadcast as part of the ACLJ team because of our financial contributors will support the work they see LJ that ACLJ.org is a tight timetable for me, the CIA before being at the State Department was a member of Congress he understands all of these issues.

So when working with him assigned the scenes at the ACLJ not just on the broadcast I were able to go to the resources to the unbelievable Intel world macro also is a member can't represent how this is happening everywhere across the country. Parents are willing to engage we come back in the bright green get more into what happened. San Francisco was me for your community that engage with your school board will hear from the 1-800-684-3110. That's 800-684-3110 back decades ACLJ's been on the frontline protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side. If you're already a member. Thank you. If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ keeping you informed and now, this is Jordan secular secular register by Sec. Pompeii. We talked about you in a rush of the real seductive about it's happening in school districts across the shocking moment shocking to me. When parents actually get involved. By the way, it is shocked that the liberal world, especially the elected world in San Francisco. Parents voted to have a recall election of the school board when the recall vote was done last night. 74% 74% of parents and and people vote the district taxpayers to pay for schools, voted to recall the school board President.

Same goes for the vice President and the one commissioner who is eligible not to say while in the whole school board is because for under their recall rules in California and it may be locally served. Cisco weren't yet eligible for recall. But even those who were ineligible for recall have gotten a wake-up call that instead of spending 17 months while the schools were closed on renaming schools for it was politically correct issues with the 17 months on how to reopen schools and the other commissioners, whether in good faith or not have gotten the message so one of the current commissioners wasn't yet eligible for recall Jenny Lam said, quote, with this evening's election.

We change course. Think about that. She was a recall. She sees the writing on the wall. That means that commissioners a different commissioner today for those parents. Since we now must before to focus our energy back on her students are schools acknowledging they got way, way into the weeds on on political correctness and social justice and forgot about reading and writing, math and science and in same Cisco's case. After 17 months fighting with the teachers unions to get the schools reopen receiving the divide, many of the school board members and not even your red cities, folks, they their campaigns get funded by teachers. That's why the date with the shutdowns and the mandates on this and that there so in line with what even liberal politicians like the mayor since San Francisco realized is that this is hurting us. We can't let these units of the massive Cisco supported this recall effort right and I just want to hear from you. Now the time the broadcast hear from parents across the country have you and reengaged your school board in your community and the action. It was a retard sec. pumping out may have not made as much news, but what you talking same thing was done hold Tennessee yes and so it may be different words used. Maybe election may be recall may be impeached making over some federal removal process but wherever you are there up for reelection at some point, and that these are not really expensive, racist, or just races. Most people don't pay attention to. So give us a call will hear from you what's happening in your community with your kids at your school's 1-800-684-3110 that's 1-800-684-3110. I do think it's important that people understand that we started the ACLJam talking well over now.

30 years ago back in the 80s school board. You remember this is a kid school board is where we cut our teeth. It was most I would say probably30% of our cases were in front of school boards Metropolis Illinois out in parts of Florida that you don't even hear about. We were in school boards and then utilize the organization got bigger in office of the cases got bigger but we never lost the focus on the idea of parental control of schools and what's happened with covert and airy really have a minute here.

Is it kinda highlighted what was going on.

We don't hear from you in the spokes at 800-684-3110. I think you're right and I think one of the things that was highlighted is that in school district after school district of school boards along with the assistance of the teachers union has yet fled common sense and so even in San Francisco.

You now have parents say this is crazy.

Keep in mind that improvement X candy argues that the regular Americans drive for a race neutral society is worse than a cross burning clan member that is crazy stuff, but these well-educated dictated elites they are drinking this Kool-Aid massive but they're getting thrown out office now in San Francisco. Give us a call 1-800-684-3110. Back to the challenges facing Americans or substantial time and are now in our freedoms, our constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stand with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades.

ACLJ on the frontline protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.

But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life-changing work become a member today ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist the ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the industry and what Obama care means to the prone life in many ways your membership is empowering the right question free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/800-684-3110 size in California online to a site welcome to secular longtime listener what I can. Our Army veteran of 10 years one and two. So we have a school board meeting last night and our school board is half split will have a problem with covert measures and supporting our children so my question to you was this election was that a special election to recall these officials or was it a regularly scheduled election to the Californian use that word recall statement with Newsom.

There was enough people signed a petition to then hold a vote on whether or not to recall Sophie is a multistep process in this spirit that process we say recall is kind of unique to California. All of these officials is that there is a removal process for every counterpart of the elect.

Actually that is outside of just the normal elections. Some are are little bit more specific, unlike if they committed a crime if they committed something illegal activity, but others are more open-ended, just like you are doing a good job so you got a kind of learn in your community. I don't want to say for hundred percent. Then in every school district in California. It works the same.

It seems like it is similar to the state officials so that where if you get enough people to say we want to host elections that the cost issue voters in that district. Aside, we want to use the tax dollars to host this kind of election you sign the petition to do that you put those petitions forward then you get to have the election, whether to recall or not, that's right. What's interesting here is this is the recall of a local school board, but the fact of the matter in San Francisco.

So was in a progressive community, but the fact of the man I want to go to fan on this if your member of Congress right now in your sit watching this and you're saying no wonder 30 Democrats have said they're not running for reelection here because this is a this is a this is a shockwave. No doubt it's shockwave J and look at meanwhile impacting change on a local level might seem easier. Although I would say, in some ways it is harder because what George is describing the rules are not uniform you have to be involved. You have to be engaged other than you can impact change quickly. However, if you zoom out on a natural on a national level.

He looked towards the 2022 midterms I would tell you J the Republican Party is probably more naturally position to take advantage of this however if you look race by race. I can almost guarantee you the candidate regardless of whether there are Republican or Democrat who recognizes this is an issue speaks to the real issue and addresses the real challenges the people are tired of facing Jordan, RJ, that's the candidate it's going to win in that national elections and I think it's it's it's a message but listen to what the parents in San Francisco had to say scorecard has not been prioritizing our children's education instead focusing on renaming schools and closing merit based admissions.

This registration number 7% to the whole thing very the parents at the end of the date Republicans demographic, progressive or conservatives want their kids to learn to read, write, and do arithmetic. I think that's precisely correct and so the effort to rename school rather than educate students is part of what might be called mono causality, meaning that race or race and gender explains everything so you have so-called antiracist commentators who assert that racism has now become the most common denominator of political controversies issues long debated on other grounds, the Senate filibuster rule. For instance, voter ID laws, standardized testing, math, statistics, meritocracy are now subject to racialized skepticism to this list, mirroring the nation's radicalized discourse on gender and sex. Now the right to bear arms embedded in the second amendment of the Constitution has now been reframed as a race issue and seen everything through the lens of grace Abram X pending after arguing the use of standardized test to measure aptitude and intelligence is one of the most effective racist policies ever to devise to the great black minds and legally exclude back black bodies now claims that are radical, revolutionary Jesus came to free people from the clutches of the American Empire and so that is the Kool-Aid that the San Francisco board has been drinking and I think the people of San Francisco, even though they are quite liberal. They recognize that this is now a bridge too far. The bridge too far. I go back to it again. It's going to have repercussions on a national level than it has to it's can have right real ramifications on a national level J and we are going to help her bring that about. And I don't necessarily even mean which candidates are elected Jake, we're gonna be with parents all across the nation to make sure that they achieve local control over the school is reset it time and time again we've been there in the trenches. We been in the school board meetings is the parents of children whether their conservative, liberal or or independent J that you to determine what their curriculum is but on a national level J when you talk start talking about federal dollars. Those federal dollars come with strings and that's where the effort becomes national. We have big means they've got a lot of people from DC policy people got adjoining and and and because were about to lodge an effort probably about a month from now when you get the first email about it since the hearing is talk that were directly so that these issues that we talked about on the show they are sometimes in Washington, but sometimes outside Washington because they jump to the school board level where where the ACLJ has been effective is right to begin a covert assisting is 1500 families from everything from food, iPads to getting the right high-speed Internet to their home all those programs exist to help you navigate because the school districts you shut down to turn your iPad on what you have on or turn the babies who gave an iPad you have high-speed Internet or enough network data where you are to be able to operate that your kid was effectively they talk about all these race issues and people being left behind. They literally were being left behind, and we assisted those families what we realized that effort is we got to get more involved as the expertise that we have the ACLJ at this level. Not that we haven't been since our fountain fountain because we been the lawyers there but we could. We also have the policy expertise in the political expertise take this next level. So know that your ACLJ is going to launch a new effort not just a new initiative really a new affiliate organization of the ACLJ to take these issues directly to the politicians in your hometown and what that does is like a situation is implicitly sometimes be working in very progressive cities to help the very progressive parents get a very better education, a much better education for their kids. So it's in the cross in some senses and across political lines, but we believe that we do have his joints and got a whole group of people in the meeting this afternoon with the next generation of leadership to get in.

It's kinda coming back actually where we started. But now we are so much bigger as an entity with more resources so we could do this, not on the coffee table of the roundtable likes to get to my office for this all started, but rather at a good national scale that will have a real impact in working to be able to take direct action on the situations, but these parents are the ones that deserve the credit here. They took the they took the lead with_your point Jamie and this is what the mayor San Francisco again. Obviously a liberal. This is what she said it's time we refocus our efforts on the basics of providing quality education for all students. J that's a concession that they weren't focusing on that, and that's why parents got upset one point, I did want to make about the federal nexus here Jake there's always gonna be a lot of education dollars coming out of Washington DC.

One of the things that were focused on his as those dollars go back to the states.

We want to make sure they don't come with strings that end up causing this exact problem were seen in San Francisco. We want to make sure that as those dollars flow to the states and flow to the local jurisdiction that parents retain control of the demonization of Sec. divorce because she supported school choice efforts all the data on school choice effort save me when you have these robust school choice programs. Guess what improves public schools because the, the school board members realize we gotta compete so we can spend all of our time on just renaming schools and maybe some schools need to be renamed after Simpson made up that historically it shouldn't be that difficult.

As a country that's in, but when it becomes 100%. Your focus is social justice and San Francisco. One of the richest, I think city in the country is one of the lowest reading rates in the state of California real. That speaks volumes. So what and what also he speaks to, and I wanted talked really to lollies, elites in every state and city.

Their kids didn't go to schools and elderly schools. So what you're saying is an uprising of voters who have been told by the left for decades were the party for you.

The union teachers union looking out for your kid there. Realizing the not and their kids don't even go to the schools definitions kids didn't have 17 months of school is a little private school and yet he was almost recalled there were no petitions so you got unbelievable amount of power you talk about these local very local elections, but you have to be willing to help you with your new initiative at the ACLJ, we want to take your phone because we are recreating the cost 100-6431 10 only one.

Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ secular take your phone calls to 1-800-684-3110 you still time to call in my question, she was have your parent have you attended a school board meeting recently. Maybe it's been years. No judgment. You might've thought of it was find your school district gets tough to get things that your kids and they made every every time a young kids that they're not interesting.

This was my teacher taught me so the Nestlé running José out.

None of this conflicts with political ideology or something like that that that's just being ingrained the bill in Wyoming. If you want to talk to us in their 1-800-684-3110 if you want to the show today all now yet, we got more information to about what you can do in California, 1-800-684-3110 hey Bill Logan Sekulow you're on their like all like here gentlemen's opinion on the recall election would be in alignment meant our agreement with what know that Virginia but also concerning Newsom in California there Newsom people sign the petition to hold the vote on the recall and ultimately he wasn't recall next difficult Democrat stronghold state, but he's but the criticism of Newsom. I think what you seen the tentacles of that you reach down to a more local level where it's a bit easier to recall some hunt and that it's not about so much as you had to pick a replacement I think of all the voters were doing California saying get rid of Newsom and they could all unite and say maybe someone else comes in is like the Lieut. Gov. something you would been recalled issues, it becomes partisan at the state level. When your governor because you exit to pick replacement and the placements got to have an effect. We we pulled up in California because we've a lot of California listeners. So if you're wondering can I do this in my school district in California. Here's the rules in California for the officials of the city County school District or County Board of Education or any wrote about resident voting district signatures from the following percentage of registered voters required for recall 10% jurisdictions with 100 or thousand or more registered voters say need 10,000 signatures and you can recall this report now the diff and what how it becomes less political. At this local level is you have to then pick replacement tickets a certain percent. You vote to recall they are gone, they didn't get an interim replacement by probably your mayor and then they'll be up for elections. The next election cycle with what's happening. His parents are reacting now want to play. We played the soil and pleading and Terry McAuliffe by presenting this cost them a Virginia election for governor.

So listen to it. I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach their young that bite pretty much ended his campaign. I don't think marriage should be telling kit teachers in school what their kids should be taught.

We believe in local control. The San Francisco much different makeup of their body politic, much more progressive and liberal said the same thing we think parents should have the right of control here and that is interesting. Other pampers that Harry that that from Virginia to San Francisco was the same thing the same issues animated both those elections, jamming the only thing different here was the jurisdiction, but there really couldn't of been almost a broader difference in the jurisdiction writing in Virginia a swing state. San Francisco probably the most liberal urban area in the country so what it tells me J politically is that every jurisdiction both locally and federally when it comes to federal elections. J every dish jurisdiction is in play on this one yeah and so Harry, you look at it.

I'm trying trying to draw the analysis of it transcends politics as transcending political parties here is very unique. I think that's correct. And I think a piece of that is arrogance and another piece is pure hubris and I think at the end of the day.

Arrogance is entitled to its own reward. So for instance if we broaden out the discussion and we looked at Oregon State. They mandate that black and brown students no longer have to demonstrate competence in math, English and science that is fundamentally a racist idea grounded in hubris. In other words, black students don't need to learn these things and guess what this means that they will be entitled to one thing and one thing only. Upon graduating from high school in Oregon unemployment company station.

So what we are doing is creating a dependency class. So this is a fundamental issue for all Americans and all Americans need to be engaged and it to transform school did districts from each coast from California to Florida from Michigan to Alabama. I like the colors were getting on YouTube. Jordan says Michelle says this is the perfect example of how and why elections have consequences, and even after elections are still consequences Janice on YouTube says the parents are doing the right thing.

Good to hear we need a lot more this Sheila on YouTube say said wait to stand up. I think this is telltale and how working to be able to now engage this on a local level and a massive local level for parents not just a school board issued but certainly in school board issues is good to make a very unique I think engagement for the ACLJ in the months at you him and when you want engage.

This is when you look at the big picture here that by the time we get to the issues in Washington DC federal federal issues your kids a bit educated. If they're being indoctrinated instead of being educated on the basics's where they can go to college and they could decide what beliefs they want. Having to talk to you as a parent I got you might share the same political beliefs. My different beliefs that all that's all fine, but we all want American kids to be able to compete in a global economy.

Yes, that means getting a good education.

That's not so partisan. What is partisan is that you've got to take on the teachers unions now at the national level. They have an unbelievable amount of power. Washington DC but the local level their endorsement now could become a negative right so let's let's push that some anti-teacher push is because the teacher union the teachers anymore right so Howard on YouTube asked this. How do you think the November elections will be affected by the education issue and I think the two issues. One is pocketbook issues. This is the other issue JM look on it as quickly say I think this is what makes us unique in the ACLJ we can help you solve both problems date look some people realize that elections have a huge impact on this issue and then other people realized that you got a work in between elections at school boards to impact change. Here's the truth. J you gotta do both. You gotta be pay attention at the ballot box, both federally and locally. But then you have to stay engaged between elections JII really can't think of another organization more uniquely situated to help with both of those aspects, and were meeting this afternoon and journal get into more in the days and weeks ahead with some major projects that were about to undertake.

Yeah that's right so were to take all of what we know at the ACLJ we talk about these issues upon the policy side to start taking it locally.

State-level County districts, counties, school boards, empowering you, I also will be a way for you to let us know if there's something going on bigger than just like affected. Maybe a student which we arty do ACLJ.org/help if you need that kind of assistance we assisted 1500 families when all these covert closures begin order to be able to do is going more effective way directly engage these issues for taking the full weight of the ACLJ into the school districts and not just one lawyer from the ACLJ but entire that organization set up as if like affiliate organization of the ACLJ to take it to the next level were meeting on it today here to learn more about it soon support our work@aclj.org.
