    School Board Fights Back Against Trans Agenda in Schools | Sonja Shaw | POLITICS | Rubin Report

    enSeptember 17, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • School Board President Asks State Superintendent to Leave Meeting Over Transgender Policy DisagreementA heated exchange occurred between Chino Valley Unified School District Board President Sonia Shaw and California State Superintendent Tony Thurmond due to a disagreement over a proposed transgender policy, resulting in Thurmond being asked to leave the meeting.

      The Chino Valley Unified School District Board President, Sonia Shaw, made headlines when she asked California State Superintendent Tony Thurmond to leave a school board meeting due to disagreements over a proposed policy requiring teachers to notify parents if a student identifies as transgender. The incident escalated into a heated exchange, with Shaw asserting her authority as board president and Thurmond insisting on discussing the matter. Shaw explained that she had previously tried to engage with Thurmond but felt disregarded, leading to the confrontation. The incident highlighted the intense emotions surrounding this controversial issue and the tensions between local school boards and state education officials.

    • School Board Member Opposes State Policy on Transgender StudentsA school board member advocated for parental involvement in their child's gender identity and implemented a policy to notify parents when their child identifies differently or makes related requests, despite state opposition.

      The discussion revolves around a school board member's opposition to a policy requiring notification of parents when their child identifies as a different gender and makes certain gender-related requests at school. The policy, which has been a subject of controversy, was proposed by the state of California but faced opposition from parents and the Chino Valley Unified School District. The school board member, who is an advocate for parents, worked on developing a policy that would put safeguards in place, ensuring transparency and parental involvement. Despite the state's attempts to push the policy, the school board member was unable to find any specific law that was being broken and moved forward with the policy implementation. The policy, which simply notifies parents when their child identifies as a different gender or makes gender-related requests, aims to keep parents informed and involved in their child's education.

    • Fighting for Transparency in Education PoliciesA school board member advocated for transparency in education policies for three years, facing opposition and name-calling. Despite the challenges, they remained committed to ensuring parents were informed about their children's education.

      Transparency in education policies is a crucial issue for parents, regardless of political affiliations. The speaker, as a school board member, fought for such a policy for over three years, emphasizing it was not about being bigoted but rather letting parents know what's happening in the classroom. However, they faced opposition, including name-calling and disruptions during meetings. Despite this, the speaker remained committed to standing strong for transparency and ensuring the majority's voice was heard. The opposition, made up of activists, continued to criticize the speaker, but the speaker's question to them remained unanswered: do they want the school district to hide secrets? The speaker believes the fight for transparency is a common-sense approach and regrets the division it has caused. Ultimately, the speaker remains dedicated to advocating for parents' rights to be informed about their children's education.

    • Personal threats and challenges for a community advocateCommitted advocate faces personal threats but stays focused on community wellbeing, finding solace in faith and community support, emphasizing unity in divisive situations, and remaining hopeful amidst temporary setbacks.

      Despite facing personal threats and challenges, the interviewee remains committed to fighting for the wellbeing of their community and children. The threats, which included death threats and name-calling, served as a daily reminder of the importance of their cause. Initially, the interviewee was taken aback by the intensity of the situation, but they found solace in their faith and the strength of their community. The divisive nature of the issue, which pits different groups against each other, was acknowledged, but the interviewee emphasized the need for unity in the face of adversity. The interviewee expressed gratitude for the opportunity to make a difference and was proud of the way communities were coming together in response. Despite temporary setbacks, such as the school board's decision and opposition from higher authorities, the interviewee remains hopeful and appreciative of the support they have received.

    • Parents unite against threats to family unit over gender identity issuesParents are standing together to protect their rights and their children's wellbeing amidst controversial bills and educational initiatives that could lead to state intervention in family matters based on gender identity.

      The current political climate, specifically regarding gender identity issues, poses a significant threat to the family unit and could potentially lead to the state taking children away from their parents if they do not affirm their child's perceived gender. This issue, as discussed, has led to a wave of awareness and unity among parents, with many coming together to fight against these bills. The situation is concerning, with bills like 957 and initiatives in the educational system attempting to take control of children's lives. Despite the challenges, parents are standing up for their rights and raising awareness in their communities. For those not directly involved, it can be a confusing and overwhelming atmosphere, but the support from fellow parents and even teachers is crucial. Overall, it's a sad situation, but it's bringing people together and shedding light on the importance of preserving the family unit and individual rights.

    • A mother's experience of unity and commitment in California's education systemA mother shares her journey of adapting to California's education system challenges, emphasizing the importance of support from counselors and community, and seeing hope in increasing national involvement.

      Despite the challenges faced by parents in California regarding education and safety, there is a growing sense of unity and commitment to fight for change. A mother, who has been actively involved in her children's education and safety, shares her experience of adjusting to new circumstances while allowing her kids to be themselves. She emphasizes the importance of having a supportive counselor and community. Despite California's current state as a one-party system, she sees a glimmer of hope in the increasing involvement of people from all over the country, ready to lend a hand. The fight for change may be a long one, but the commitment and unity among parents are strong. California, once discredited, could lead the nation in showing what can be achieved when people come together and refuse to be labeled or divided. The time for change is limited, and the movement is gaining momentum.

    • A soccer mom's inspiring fight against the CTACommunity support and passion can overcome adversity, as shown by Sonia Shaw's determination to challenge the California Teachers Association.

      Community involvement and passion are crucial for bringing about change, even in the face of adversity. The conversation highlighted the inspiring story of Sonia Shaw, a soccer mom who took a stand against the California Teachers Association (CTA). Shaw's determination and refusal to back down despite the challenges she faced serves as a reminder that anyone can make a difference. The importance of community support and encouragement was also emphasized, with listeners being encouraged to get involved and support organizations like the Liberty Justice Center. The conversation ended on a hopeful note, with the belief that the political cartels and bullies are being dismantled, and that the fight for individual rights and freedoms is far from over. The speakers emphasized the importance of staying engaged, encouraging each other, and refusing to give up.

    The Argument: Why the G.O.P. Can't Stop Saying 'Gay'

    Today we're bringing you an episode from our friends at The Argument about Florida's “Don't Say Gay” bill and the broader wave of anti-L.G.B.T.Q. legislation, spurred by the political right, that is spreading across the country. According to the Human Rights Campaign, this year alone, more than 300 anti-L.G.B.T.Q. bills have been introduced in state legislatures. 

    Why has this issue become a major focus of the Republican Party? And how is the way society treats individuals who identify as L.G.B.T.Q. changing? Jane Coaston speaks to her Times Opinion colleagues Ross Douthat and Michelle Goldberg about these questions and brings a deeply personal perspective to the table.

    A Conservative's View on Democrats' Biggest Weakness

    A Conservative's View on Democrats' Biggest Weakness

    “There is definitely a contest for the future of the center right,” says Reihan Salam, the president of the Manhattan Institute, a conservative think tank. In his telling, one side in this contest is “deeply pessimistic about the prospect of a diversifying America, explicitly anti-urban and increasingly willing to embrace redistribution and centralized power,” more so than conservatism before Donald Trump. This populist right has received a lot of attention since Trump’s election, and we’ve done other shows to try to understand it.

    But Salam is advancing a very different set of ideas with a very different theory of the electorate. He’s identified what he sees as a core fissure between the progressive elites who run the Democratic Party and the working-class voters of color who make up a large part of its base — particularly on issues of race and gender. And he believes that by putting forward an “urban conservative” agenda centered on education, housing and public safety, Republicans can exploit those internal cleavages and begin to win over demographics that have been central to the Democratic coalition.

    So for the final episode in our “The Rising Right” series, I wanted to use Salam’s thoughts to explore this alternate path for the American right. We discuss why the Republican Party has turned against major cities, whether antiracism is the right framework for addressing racial inequality, why he believes that children of Latino and Asian immigrants could become a core G.O.P. constituency, the difference between antiracism and “antiracialism,” the tactics of the anti-critical-race-theory movement, why he thinks there’s been an “overcorrection” on the right in favor of state power and redistribution, what a supply-side conservatism beyond just tax cuts could look like, why he believes we could be entering an era of “fiscal constraints” that could radically reshape policymaking on both the left and right and more.

    725: Leaving Pro Sports and a Violent Past to Forge Financial Freedom from SCRATCH w/Suni Rao
    To invest in real estate, you need to have a strong why. Without it, you won’t get far, and the first fumble that comes your way may be your last. That’s why having a solid reason behind your real estate investing can keep you going while the rest give up. And this is precisely what Suni Rao’s success is built on as a former pro tennis player turned financial analyst and now ten-unit real estate investor. You may think you know her story already since she was a former pro, but you’d probably be wrong. Suni was raised in a household of domestic violence. As a child, she knew that if she only had enough money, she could escape and finally be free of the abuse. So when the opportunity came for her to play pro tennis at a young age, she took the chance without ever looking back. This dream continued until her early twenties, when she was physically forced to give up her goal of winning the world’s biggest tournaments. She took a hard pivot, eventually leading her to climb the corporate ladder, only to have some crushing feedback knock her off. However, none of this stopped Suni from building the life she wanted in the background. After one property came another, and another, and another. Now, with ten units to her name, she’s making massive strides toward financial freedom and is here to tell you exactly how you can do the same.  In This Episode We Cover Financial insecurity and how to regain your freedom through real estate investing  House hacking and using it as a stepping stone to invest in bigger, better properties  Leaving the corporate ladder behind to build your own wealth without an employer  Sports lessons of resilience that any real estate investor can relate to  How to stop limiting beliefs and doubts from derailing your dreams  Why property class matters and how buying in better neighborhoods will make you more  How to “force appreciation” and gain massive equity on your properties  And So Much More!
