Welcome back ladies and gentlemen. Sandy beach show here on his radio at 930 WB yeah. 1007. This morning. Michael Pitt went for sandy es off like probably your two here on President's Day. I am in for work though. Happy to be here and Bob come in and the results on holiday open your and join our show we're talking quite a bit today. About the buffalo school board of this this is it has been a frequent topic in the Buffalo News lately. I was just speaking about the doctor Gary or field this far left. Academic pointy headed academic. Out of our UCLA's. School of civil rights or whatever it is. Who were who called personal letter sent an email. To the office of civil rights at the United States Department of Education complaining about Carl Paladino. And I saw the headline of the Buffalo News there is like this is about as much about dog bites man story. As I've ever heard another liberal pointy headed academic. Complaining about Carl Paladino. Wang Wang Wang. Well that's why I've got Carl Paladino on the library. Aide Karl I don't. And you know I was just talk about this guide our or fueled doctor or fuel out of UCLA. Are what are what a twit he has. You know about his left feeling is they come Carlin he has gotten exactly what he wanted to out of the Buffalo News. All the publicity. That he could handle for a week. And it seems like the Buffalo News didn't even Google to find out that he's obviously someone that would be very comfortable with the the school board minority which is Roland schools. Well I'd say they started. When they hired a doctor. James Williams. Back about ten years ago. They did it sure chips and so this present school here. It's on their watch that the the awful public schools and saw identity of this. And question we have. 46 that put seven schools are failing. Our proficiency. Man is some ground nine cent city wide approach and that he had taken a consideration mennesses. That are strong schools are criterion schools certainly have a lot to do with and see those numbers up. In English our court and put it is a bottle of the troops out. Are you kidding me. That makes sense win win win your members of the school or can speak English. What we have schools that have Cyril. Proficiency for instance school 37 Putin's Anibal. The proficiency in that school is Cyril unmet. It is and isn't this the proficiency in English I believe was one or 2%. We have schools that ad. And and at the end we don't see. After three or four years of what they call Sig grant state improvement grants. Members of improvement grants that we don't see. Much of a change. The grant applications that was submitted by former majority. You remember OK let them fail they were not provable case which increased submit them because. They couldn't accept the fact that change was necessary. The beep yeah you know the belief. By. The minority. Representatives on our board. Minority children should only be taught by. Teachers supervised by. Minorities. Should it means a great illustration of just how. Off the reservation I'll races. These status or people become. What's interesting Carl you know are remembered right around that that. That black suvs. Shabby that we rented during your campaign come how often we talked about schools and and and I wasn't shocked to hear the we're gonna run and W Baird and I saw the video and heard the audio on WB Ian dot com Friday meeting. It's a circus it's an absolute circus and you're somebody who you know. If you spent it all worked out something you're making quite a bit of money and your taken time away from making money for your family to go over and and go to these meetings at an it's a circus I mean is it worth it Karl. Well I know there's one actor. I felt good that we're. There are sitting was suffering tremendously. I watched decades of of young people moving and Helene on the city because they couldn't afford to send their kids at the party Catholics. Or didn't charter schools they'd be. And they couldn't get amend the charter schools so they collide. To the suburbs. To get away from it there as a result of the city who's dying. I looked at Aetna I look at all these little kids there's. A lot of room you know what this cycle property Barr. This cycle probably I've witnessed in my entire life network at what point does billions of dollars troll. I looked at what point does that start to lose it makes sense and start to deal with the situation. It's terrible in the results and crack bones also the case inner city or just horrendous. And bad that. I know I'm different I know I'm I'm not the type of person that. Goes along to be along in all of us that stops and I'm not really an intimate able type person you call me anything you want I don't care. I secure something strong and outside the war. I'll play with two of the best. The media. I say it's great to me a couple of things that I saw. Was that the people as I would Goteborg. Sets them listen to them nonsense. I've spoken with people. That were running things. Number one we're not transparent. Than it was a big secret. Number two they were there they would not people that really. I want it to get in depth. And so the real problems. That problems. For instance. The inability of a Paris to cooperate in the child's education. Because we have this bossy and where we take kids from one neighborhood did. Then in the southern part of the city of possible witness another neighborhood and other city. Their boss culture and just get up that early in the morning just have to get out Abbas. And then spend anywhere up to three hours days bust. It is debilitating some two children you just can't kick equality and put them. In the situation wasn't staring out the window or an hour and a mutual respect and sports school. I'd I'd looked at things like that. It's something terrible op Ed and I I don't see anybody else and not to have so that's what that's what I chose to do. I don't have any problem. Sitting there. Then what you just described as it's a chaotic beating that step so it would mean I I could sit here because I know already word extreme acrimony. We'd be able box this old. Established idea that education is best performed as we're doing it right now the status quo is unacceptable. This relationship incestuous relationship between board members. And the union have to. Golf union. The union leadership have to work a bit yes you can sit there audience answered. We're teachers in the name most of teachers they. But you needn't be right 30000. Kids and that is walk. Can't tell me performing school should be allowed to continue to be even one school. Last year they close to. Charter schools political and community is close those schools. Because they said that they were not performing those schools we're doing better than twenty pipes fool us. Admit it did the city box or just it's all because of this hatred. Or anything that they don't. Do me okay this is a public institution. Charter schools are public schools that publicly funded the state created. Give children an alternative education. And and this did oh. Currency battles over over even saying the word charters schools just this absolute foolishness. Well Carl let me ask you about this guy this guy doctor or field Carl. You know who who hired him. And our that complaint was made by the deep and she's seeded district Kurds and coordinating council. Should leave office of civil rights. The United States Education Department. That complaint basically said. That we have violated. No Child Left Behind because. Thousands of kids would affect about 27000. Kids in those 46 that group formed schools. And under No Child Left Behind in the immediate right. An immediate right to. Within that prior to the next school year to be put him to a performing school. That's all true that is as good we know. That's why I believe we were elected let me. Because the prior board group says that age requirement because they thought everything that was it was attempted to do they thought he. Yeah I was sending advocate some policies. They bought the idea charters. And they bought neighborhood schools they'd they'd want to do anything to create more performing. Seats in schools. Seoul the new majority came on board we've been addressed and probably better addressed these solutions do a lot of these search. The statement declared force schools. There has been. Quote too close because of their continuous. Elders to get to address the problems and then to alternative schools around so. They they they force the closure and put them into what's known as a result program. While we studied. That could turn around plans for both schools. Infected the schools did produce. A couple of very good turnaround plans. And we brought that it was very insightful. They didn't call for an expansion of the school day and expansion of this. This school year. And different. Techniques in teaching. Well let me ask you is is this is this. I am I saw you mentioned the media that perhaps this complaint would be withdrawn it is there a way to get this guy doctor Warfield out of Wear pants. All I I think we should just discharge. What happened that aren't. We and selected apparently by the committee that the PS. Because he was the cheapest of the true. And and that's about all of these there's a bit but big global OK as I look now and I've sending out they're. A letter to doctor Blanchard pointing out that the I believe we have hired a socialist. Social reengineering guy who thinks who page charters and aids. Neighborhood schools and is school bus. Well actually said Carl he says that school segregation. Nowadays today in 2015 is worse than it has ever been this. This guy's he's knots. He calls New York State schools apartheid schools. That the ban is totally out as rocker and I wrote in the note that says please dec. I do not think if you're going to. Because he would he would live. They built this school board basically saying that nothing should be done both but prior Election Day. In implementing a reform plan until such time that she's filed in court with thousands of dollars. He was hired to deal with the OCR. Which basically said the criteria schools. Are. The court curious schools involved all. There enrollment processes. Wrong. Well. If there are wrong. They date that's what we've been using all of these years OK and that there are water and sure. I reform plan will address it because we're talking about expanding. This leads in bill's criteria schools. And and that's what we're about right now. Carl about that a bet Newt news reports of a Friday meeting our ups and I've wouldn't stand for that I'd be gone at and I think. That you know these people are organized in the peanut gallery there there probably are union members standing up and screaming at you and you know people screaming you two were on the board the General Counsel screaming. They're trying to run view and Larry Quinn off part that. That's the only firing at this meeting. That we about Robert's rules of border question. Robert Wilson border is. Eight program to to address the conduct of media such as ours right. Quote you're so Robert's rules does that. The majority rules however the minority must be given a clear opportunity to speak. Robert's rules provides. To give a clear opportunity to speak. It didn't share decides to have two rounds of discussion. Each person having the right to speak for ten minutes. He follows that procedure he can then call for the vote. He does not yet to actually does not have to pass a motion to. To close debate. Abortion and what they actually called the question which requires two thirds majority. All of us into this call for the vote it's not emotion he just says called the role of the vote. And end. And Jim Jim stance and tried to do that yet today this world. By our General Counsel. She into the border a woman named Rashad Rashad drug Barton she ruled. That that. That was improper that he had to call the question which requires two thirds. In other words we've got remark is me setting. The standards are all such meetings. She's not saying that. Majority no longer rules and it takes two thirds majority to rule that was wrong. Well listen and so and and you heard your interview with on hard line this week and should you actually caught her. Now at a back rooms and a Little Rock meeting with commitment the more minority caucus looks like she's obviously working for them. Obviously she brought workable on the issue was caucusing with them in the room when I caught. And and then and I found that very discouraging. Carl let me ask his architect RU UN Larry quitter gonna stick around you're not the right. No we move well when we had her battle. We're committed to their battle longer drag itself we. Brother can do that carcass a lot of people appreciate which direct I don't care what the Buffalo News writes if they don't research the stories that they write if they don't find out that they're. They're highlighting a man who is obviously an opponent to reform. Then they shouldn't be writing these stories at all right but. Watch you know the 100% aren't. Already a world away over our break here we're gonna have to go look how we got a bunch of calls are all get to right after this message. I know you got it after all this stuff you do all day along the school boards and he's been easy epicenter and BB rated by people who should not be allowed in the room. I know you gotta get to your works on gonna let you go do do your day job okay. Not. OK great I have a go what thanks lock our latest album will be right back after these messages.

School board and net and then couple schools systems and other local schools are gonna complain about what they haven't that they don't. And I'm doing abdominal call that it was conservative match. And it main priority and that was thinking about other district I have a lot of money at it what they're making compared to what they are. And I think that I'm not compatible with each district and everything I age I'd like to know what they're actually what they. School board is compared to other districts and the thank. When I understand they start their limit them up to a maximum. And I thought it would over a thousand dollar a year. For couples school law teacher Leah and they get to belong to be higher or lower item I'm not really short and I mean nip and every company every.

In the morning. Michael -- here in force sandy is off today as many view we've been talking about the buffalo school board this topics gonna change. At 11 o'clock and we have about the pleasure of hosting here in the studio Samir Gado who is. An international man of intrigue. Maybe he's a spy that we don't know is a Russian guy who's been on TV quite a lot. With Anthony or Dane if you watch any of those travel. Food shows and Samir is quite a character 11 o'clock or beer for last hour but we've been talking about the school board. And there we were speaking with a bill from gas or who want to seem more. Of the salaries of teachers see how different they are being able deceive them in. Publicly you know I I actually. I was in college back that you be many many years ago in the eighties. I thought it was important you know look at the salaries of the professors are easily found on it wasn't of course there was no Internet then. Back in the eighties but the EU could go to the right office and finest hours I. Went to those offices found those salaries are publishing my own newspaper on a weekly basis at the university and I've published. All those professors salaries that UB. On the back page of my paper and they wind out of their mind they threatened to kick me out of school for. Unfortunately they were able to do that and so he area here WB I'm Brooke you know bill of the idea public somebody makes for teaching children. It ONN. It's it's out there you know you can putt and I think there is some somewhat of a disparity between buffalo glitzy Orchard Park right. All out there the possibility as the match but I look at it that there are kitchen and update and Chandler what it stitcher get. Candidature of their own law. Our negotiation committee and the think tank and Internet. And remember one thing you've got the ball well but again the pick of the schools that data helped. Could it be more about wanna be involved and had. Okay why can't they get better education to panda. And what they are a couple weeks ago record and the national on the underrated one of the radio stations don't much want. I look around not convertible really killer app that Edward. For students. And couple came out one of the high. Syracuse in New York. Here than optimal ball away at 97 lives and they I'll be. Well in California now and it's like I can Gallup editor at the end of the demonic as does. It based on that teacher. We're going to teach him everything I grew up in the fifties don't into the schools and fifteen we hit 404230. By. With a minimum I've ever hit in my class. And we did pretty a pretty good but. Not great I didn't get a yeah that was my education like a lot of people were out kicked out of school. And little more on my home. We didn't do anything wrong no that's that's that the guilty always say that. Obama now I what I did someone punched in the face I expect I get kicked out. I'll leave school because of their parent and school board. Is probably don't apply I tactic equipment and an epic. And you weren't allowed back in school like you wanted. It to you grow up to complete Beck and we're not allowed to keep them occupied and the dollars a year go to another district and I considered I I was a poor person. Poor child at the time and and chipping and we report back then compared the port today an action pork and well about it. And I'm tired of looking into the upload pictures and everything to someone about personal connection. Are you don't put the children would indicate action if you want it go toward the location and we can make bigger box and a I had I had no problem up there I I would let it wave activity should these institutions were underpaid making 2000 dollars a year. And the global jump in order to make it 89000 dollars a year. Let me ask this don't let me let me ask. Of our -- what you think at this present school board and all the chicanery and action and there this circus like atmosphere you what what's your thought. They're bunch of children who got into the net I like Dion DuBois Amber's hair there will certainly staying calm and cool. In the other want to act like they are children they haven't grown up they don't have the mentality of a block wrecked our teenage kids. It's open to people. I did you say you did you go to buffalo public schools. It quite yet I would order the state. I was I cruel and or conscious all my life. And I don't think it my all time I don't it won't be a teacher and we were pot and I was in one of the homes in cable owned and ought to ask. A great teacher you want and what it was the only teacher and I can actually told me I was a trip that. Well. We're Jim are you retired now.

Forty years ago and she didn't want to go down they're typically not what I collect the reps we are tired Rick Down had been compared appear.

We need to hear from there we need to see them on its ear that. You know it's difficult you know Kevin and I've always suffered this throughout my career politics. You know it's always been really difficult to get Republicans do rallies to get conservatives to sort of public meetings. We always joke and say that's because we all have jobs. But you know that's not really. Comedy and more people need to come out I mean if you look at Ed via. And the the people at that meeting are are in the video are purports to come out of the Friday thing. They are absolutely out of control chanting in a business meaning chanting. And you know people like you were mere people who support the reforms going on school need to take the time to go to these things whether always going to be a circus. Yet because it's such a cute terrorist too because the money should construe problem. Individual so you know all strike the ball flew to Detroit in order but our experience there in directing your car radio that. And where I've read magnitude I'd like this but it but over all sort of distress he has to it's it's that. He'd be just sit on the board right no trouble makers. To some extent be a reflection. Of small parts of the constituencies. Bought for them and pitched this is reflective or so I don't you know what state and local level but even federally. Right when you look at individual votes.

I found out that I was in Russia during a time when everybody was drinking more than ever before in the ninety's after. The government after communism fell apart and the reformers Cayman. Things were in such bad state of the drinking just started. And and you know listen the people in Russia drank incredible amounts especially the men. Drake incredible amounts of a vodka and I didn't know. This when I moved there but you could not have a business meeting and not drink vodka you could not have.
