Another win for our democracy-The verdict in the Oath Keepers seditious conspiracy case

In today's episode, I cover yesterday's landmark verdict of my former employer, Stewart Rhodes. According to the New York Times:Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the far-right Oath Keepers militia, was convicted on Tuesday along with one of his subordinates of seditious conspiracy as a jury found them guilty of seeking to keep former President Donald J. Trump in power through an extensive plot that started after the 2020 election and culminated in the mob attack on the Capitol.The jury in Federal District Court in Washington found three other defendants in the case not guilty of sedition and acquitted Mr. Rhodes of two separate conspiracy charges.The split verdicts, coming after three days of deliberations, were a landmark — if not total — victory for the Justice Department, which poured enormous effort into prosecuting Mr. Rhodes and his four co-defendants.The sedition convictions marked the first time in nearly 20 trials related to the Capitol attack that a jury had decided that the violence that erupted on Jan. 6, 2021, was the product of an organized conspiracy.Also, in today's episode, we listen to the recording of the public comment section of Monday Estes Park School District's Board of Education regular meeting. I then read two additional letters I have received from Estes Park Community members sharing their thoughts and feelings on the Charter School Application to the board by Loveland Classical Schools. Please Note the two letters to the Board of Education are at the bottom of this email.Here is the link to my interview on Chris Cuomo's new show on NewsNation from last night's coverage.Unfortunately, the panel discussion I was a part of last night on MSNBC's 11th Hour is not yet posted to the internet, but this video recap does include some of my footage. Here is the local affiliate KDVR Fox 31's interview with me from last night: Here is the link to the RMPBS documentary on the historical rise of fascism I spoke about in the episode. Letter 1There seems to be a narrative being shared with the charter application that our schools are failing students.  This is on the coattails of the national narrative that students fared poorly with the disruption to education during the pandemic.  Our school district certainly faced some challenges, but we did not follow this pathway.  I think it's important to communicate with our students, families and community about all the positives that are happening with our district.  We are certainly NOT failing our students.I read through the Loveland Classical School- Estes Valley (LCS-EV) application. I have a number of concerns about the reasoning behind the school, the impact on our district and current students, and sustainability.  Here are my main concerns.* There is a claim that the LCS curriculum will better meet student needs.  I taught in a Core Knowledge school previously and it is a viable curriculum.  However, the curriculum being used in EPSD is meeting student needs as evidenced by test scores.* LCS schools compared to other schools with similar demographics show them performing in the bottom or bottom third.  EPSD's elementary and middle school is performing in the top or top third when using the same comparison.  It's also important to note that we have significantly higher numbers of students who are ELL compared to any of these schools.  * There is no clear plan for transportation other than a rideshare app idea.  This discriminates against our low socioeconomic families who need reliable transportation. The ride share app may work in Loveland, but the Estes Valley area has a wider and more challenging geographical footprint to pull this off.  * There were some ideas in the application for lunches, but not a clear plan.  How will this affect students who qualify for Free and Reduced lunches?* There was no information on how LCS-EV would provide extra-curricular activities and sports.  Would they expect to have students join the EPSD clubs and teams?* The initial numbers on the application don't seem to add up to their anticipated enrollment for their year one. Only a portion of the students they mention would be eligible.  This would mean they are planning on recruiting students from our existing schools to get the numbers needed to start. * The pastor of Cornerstone Church, Bruce Finger, serves on the LSC board.  The church would receive a minimum of $50,000 for renovations.  This seems to be a conflict of interest.  If the school did start, but was not sustainable, the church would still benefit. If another church on their application was chosen instead then they would still benefit from renovations.  * According to ECEA 4.08, the school district is still responsible for Special Education compliance.  How would this work if the district didn't receive funding, but still needed to be responsible?* LCS has their own appointed board.  The LCS-EV school would be included with the Loveland board.  This takes away local control and our Board of Education would have no say in how funds are spent. Is our community ok with having a board in another town govern the funding from our district?* The legal representation, Miller Farmer Law, from LCS is also representing other classical charter schools. They are pushing for Charter Networks across the state.  This law firm stands to make a lot of money with these expansions.  See recent applications for Ascent Classical schools and what is going on in Durango and Ignacio.  * The application suggests using money from the LCS reserves.  This money would have been collected with the intent of using it for students in the Thompson School District.  Is this ok with Loveland taxpayers?  CO Rev Stat § 22-30.5-104.7 (2016) does state that funds from MLOs and bonds cannot be used to support ‘for a school authorized by one authorizer to support a school authorized by a different authorizer.' * Typically school districts keep some money in their reserves, but LCS has about 6 million dollars.  Why isn't this money being spent to invest in their current students rather than try to start a network?  * The EPSD has seen a decline in students in the past ten years due to cost of living, low wages and lack of affordable housing.  LCS-EV projects an increase of students in their plan.  This does not seem sustainable with our trends.  Declining enrollment in the Denver area is causing many charters to close.* A number of years ago we combined our primary and intermediate schools to cut back on the costs of running an extra building.  Is it financially sound to add another building back into how our per pupil funding is being spent?* ‘Teachers' at LCS do not need to be highly qualified and the pay also reflects this.  How does LCS-EV plan to recruit and retain staff?  The cost of living in Loveland is 12% less than in Estes Park.  The biggest issue is housing with the difference in median home cost being 25% less in Loveland.  The EPSD is still trying to hire for positions this school year and we are close to halfway through it.  * What are the enrollment numbers at LCS for October count and then at the end of the school year?  Schools get per pupil funding based on October count.  Do they retain consistent numbers all school year? LCS-EV would keep per pupil funding for any student who un-enrolls after October count and returns to EPES or EPMS.* Our school district would lose 5 teaching positions with their initial proposal of 108 students.  Some charters take on teachers displaced and keep their current salary.  This does not seem to be the case for LCS.  These are teachers who have worked hard and are invested in our students and community that would lose their jobs.Some of the messaging I've heard states that LCS-EV school would provide choice.  I'm certainly not opposed to having choices.  However, this particular charter in our small, rural district does not seem sustainable over time.  It would also be a detriment to our current schools and negatively affect all the great things we are doing right now.  We have a new head administration team within the past year (Ruby Bode, Carmen Williams and Sundee Pietsch) and there is such positive momentum.  I'm wondering if the folks who are supporting this charter application have reached out with what they would like to see for our school district since there is a new admin team to work with. We are only better when we work together. Thank you for considering these questions as you embark on making the decision for this charter application.  It sounds like there are three possible outcomes:  deny, approve with conditions or approve. I strongly encourage you to deny this application to do what is best for ALL of our students, our district and our community.  This would be a risky investment for a school that hasn't shown great performance at their Loveland campuses.  I, as a taxpayer, would prefer to keep the same level of funding for our current schools so that we can continue to support our students with their achievement and growth.Letter 2I would like to add my objection to the proposal to have Loveland Classical Schools open a charter school in Estes Park, for the following reasons:I am not a Constitutional scholar, but I know that the concept of "separation of church and state" evolved from the language of the First Amendment, with the relevant portion being "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."  One part of the interpretation of that is that there shall not be a national religion.  Until recently that also meant that religious organizations would be essentially tax exempt, and that (non-sectarian) tax revenues would not be used to support sectarian organizations.  As the LCS-EV is proposed, it will have classrooms in a Church.  An LCS Board member (Rev. Finger) is the pastor of a Church in Estes Park, and the rest of the Board will be appointed.  By whom? The application makes many references to virtues, ethics, morality, and souls, characteristics that are in the usual purview of the Church.   There are limitations on what will be taught (e.g., excluding certain conflicts, human sexuality, human evolution) that again imply a belief system such as religion rather than open access to knowledge as an evolving process.  The teachers will be hired by the Board, and do not have to be Colorado state certified or licensed in any way, which could mean they do not have the years of instruction in teaching skills, one of which is to be non-judgmental, nor the supervised classroom experience in their training.This proposal wishes to use school district tax-based funding to support a particular sectarian orientation.  This would be using government funds to promote a narrow religious view of what constitutes education, and this does violate the First Amendment proscription against the government establishing religion.I am aware that the Supreme Court recently decided (Carson v. Makin, 2021) that the state of Maine must allow their school voucher program to pay for tuition for religious schools.  Maine has some rural areas with no educational resources at some or all grade levels, and tuition vouchers were meant to allow children to attend private schools.  The state law said that the private schools were to be non-sectarian, and the Court's 6-3 decision last year struck that down.  This is a major crossroad in the national discussion of values, and Estes Park is a small component in a very large issue.  It seems imprudent to make a very premature, precipitous decision like this without broader dissemination of the information to the stakeholders, not only children, parents, and school district staff, but the residents in the school district who are the tax-payers who will have to live with the consequences.  My input is to table the application until the public can be adequately informed, and to make this a ballot issue for the next local election. ⚕︎ Linnéa Carter, MDClick here to sign up for our Holiday Special.Today's episode is sponsored by: Get full access to The Colorado Switchblade at www.coloradoswitchblade.com/subscribe

En este episodio “vamos al grano”, hablamos de ACNÉ, uno de los temas por el que más nos habéis consultado, y que trae de cabeza a adolescentes, pero también a adultos. El acné es un problema que la mayoría de nosotros va a tener que afrontar en algún momento de su vida: alrededor del 80 % de los adolescentes y cerca del 40 % de las mujeres adultas lo padecen.Ell mensaje más importante que tenemos que dar es que el acné tiene cura, y cuanto antes actuemos mejor, ya que puede dejar cicatrices inestéticas para siempre. No debemos resignarnos y aceptar que es un castigo de la adolescencia que hay que pasar si o si, no tenemos porqué pagar ese peaje, porque es una enfermedad que para colmo aparece en un momento como es la adolescencia, una etapa crucial en la que somos más vulnerables y se está forjando nuestra personalidad, autoestima, autoimagen. De hecho, multitud de estudios han demostrado que quienes padecen acné muestran síntomas de ansiedad y depresión, así como baja autoestima. Puede incluso afectar al rendimiento en el trabajo o en el colegio.¿Entonces cómo debemos actuar si sufrimos acné o tenemos un familiar que lo padece? Pues acudiendo al Dermatólogo, ese es el paso más importante: el de buscar ayuda y no llevarlo uno solo a escondidas o con remedios caseros sacados de YouTube. Y el de actuar de forma preventiva, especialmente si es un acné que está dejando cicatrices, más vale prevenir que tratar. Hoy en día existen soluciones excelentes para el tratamiento de casos de acné leve o moderado (por ejemplo, cremas queratolíticas, antibióticos orales, anticonceptivos, etc) hasta casos de acné severo, como retinoides tópicos y orales que funcionan muy bien. Es decir, que disponemos de treamientos muy eficaces, definitivos y seguros.

Do you know what stage of language acquisition your ELL students are in and how to support them in that stage? Understanding the stages and knowing where your students are at is so important in helping them successfully learn the English language. Cris Howard is joining us today to share her extensive knowledge on language acquisition and its importance. Keeping the stages of language acquisition in mind when we are teaching our ELLs is key to helping them understand and retain the language. Cris is sharing some incredibly helpful insight on language acquisition with us. She is covering her experience teaching English, what language acquisition is and why it matters, why it is important for teachers to understand this approach, what the steps of language acquisition are, and tips on how to teach students at each stage. Cris Howard is from Brazil and speaks three languages: English, Portuguese, and Spanish.

In this episode, I talk with Carly Spina about her experience as a teacher and her book Moving Beyond for Multilingual Learners. I have followed Carly for years and have used her resources in my classes, so I know you'll love them too.Carly shares about her experiences growing up in a linguistically diverse neighborhood in Chicago. She went on to learn Spanish, but is quick to acknowledge that she learned a new language out of privilege, not out of necessity to learn. While she has a passion for working with elementary school students, she now works with multilingual learners and teachers  from early childhood to high school. No matter the grade level, she believes she works with the best students and best families in the school. We compare our experiences teaching in closet-like classrooms and our favorite lessons and student stories. The, we discuss the cultural change that needs to happen to change the acronyms used to refer to multi language learners, who are often reduced to letters like LEP, ELL, and ELs. These acronyms start with something the students don't have as compared to labels like “gifted and talented” which are almost never reduced to letters.She goes on to share her frustration around lessons that seem to treat multilingual learners as afterthoughts, only referred to in a gray box at the bottom of the lesson page. Language has to be at the forefront of every lesson plan, not a “tweak” at the end. Carly describes how she leans into student interests and get them learning and creating. So many students, she says, want to be content creators, which is the highest level of rigor and uses all 4 language domains, so why not?What you will hear about Language and Inclusion for Multilingual LearnersWhy multilingual learners are the best in the schoolAll about Carly's Book, Moving Beyond for Multilingual LearnersThe importance of the language we use to label our studentsThe need to continually reflect on our own language choicesWays text Engineering can support multi language learnersSome of her favorite lessons & activitiesResourcesAs mentioned in the episode, I am linking some useful resources!The ESL Teaching Roadmap – membership community for middle and high school ESL/ELL teachers.

Are you looking to create a culture of reading at your school and with your ELLs? We all know that reading opens so many doors for our students but getting them to read can be a struggle. Today I am joined by high school librarian Terrie Sharp, who is sharing how she helped create a culture of learning in her school. There can be many obstacles in getting ELL students and emergent bilingual students to read but it is so important that we help them become readers. Terrie saw there was a need to make reading more accessible to the students in her high school in order to help them develop their reading skills. In this episode, Terrie is sharing her background and current role, what the Cowboys Read! program is and how it got started, how the program created a culture of reading in the school, and what's next for the program. Terrie is celebrating almost 30 years as an educator at McCollum high school in San Antonio, Texas. She began her career as an English teacher and taught all levels, from IS to AP and everything in between. Her love of books and reading inspired her to make a change 15 years ago and became the librarian at McCollum. Inspired by students, Terrie has developed the Cowboys Read! program to promote reading without restrictions tied to checking books out of the library. Terrie enjoys how different every year can be at the best job in the world, a librarian.

E78: There Is No End To The Matter 10.3.22 We are back with what is without a doubt the best pod of the year! Well, the year just started, so that's a low bar, but actually this is one of our favorite ones ever. We start with a little reflection on Rosh Hashanah, Dan teaches a short Mishna about Yom Kippur (this little study sesh may be a recurring bit) and then we consider how our Jewish practices are either (or both) religious and cultural. We also discuss the new AAP guidelines about lice in school and the reason why ELL numbers have trended down in recent years and kick off a special new Jukebox segment where Dave reacts to songs Dan thinks he should like. Dan encourages Dave to buy an old business in Auburn and dabbles with intermittent fasting, Dave keeps up his “involvement” with tickets, and a whole lot more.
