federal government. >> drivers catch a break at the gas pump as the labor day weekend approaches. >> california's top educator california apart when it comes to classroom instruction. the four on 2 starts now. she stops, she takes a selfie, she turns around, and was shot. as she fell, she said help me, dad. that's my bedtime story every night. and if you want it to be your bedtime story every night, then do nothing. >> the family of cat steinle speaking out on the steps of san francisco city hall. welcome to the four on 2, everyone. >> today kate's family filed a claim against the san francisco sheriff, u.s. immigration and customs enforcement, and the bureau of land management
4:01 pm
blaming them for the death of their loved one. they made that announcement outside city hall. >> we are live from the city with the latest on this story. a very emotional news conference today. >> reporter: yeah, it was. all of the family members sort of got choked up at one point or another. the mother, father, and brother all stood on the steps basically saying we want the finger pointing between politics and law enforcement to stop. we want officials to take responsibility. so today the family of kate steinle filed a claim. this is sort of the precursor to a lawsuit against the city of san francisco as well as the bureau of land management. the claim alleges it was the lack of oversight of several agencies that led to steinle's killing. they are forbidding them to contact, undocumented immigrant
4:02 pm
and felon sanchez out of the country and blm for improperlying for the handgun that killed kate. >> we're here to make sure a change is made so nobody has to endure the pain my mom and dad and i go through on a daily basis because the system failed our sister. and at this point, nobody has taken responsibility, accountability, and nothing has changed. >> reporter: july 1st, she was shot and killed while walking on pier 14 arm in arm with her father. the family attorney said the gun used to kill kate was stolen from a car fully loaded inside a backpack in plain view. the sheriff's office did release a statement saying
4:03 pm
while the sheriff can't comment on potential litigation, he continues to extend his deepest sympathy to the family for their loss. the bureau of land management says it takes seriously the loss of any human life and we are continuing to fully cooperate with on going investigations. we have also reached out to ice, and they say a statement is pending. back to you. >> what's the feeling that you get from the family out there? what do you think was the final straw that made them go ahead and push through this course of action? >> reporter: it was an interesting story when you heard kate's father talk about how the last words that his daughter said were help me, dad. he said those words are now serving as a source of empowerment for them. they want to help her in death, and they want to help others so that this doesn't happen to them. they were also angry. the father made a point of saying, you know, when kate died we got all of these phone calls, all of these condolences from politicians, the sheriff,
4:04 pm
mayor ed lee. but since then, they say the silence has been deafening with no one stepping forward to help to prevent this from happening to another family. >> this has nothing to do with money. the family is saying this is about their frustration regarding sanctuary cities, and that is why we are taking this legal action. it is not the money. >> reporter: they did make a point of saying that, but their attorney frank pietre said it's the money that talks. when you start talking money and you sue people for money, that's when real change comes about. he said that was unfortunate but that's just the way our society is. >> is lopez still in jail in san francisco? >> reporter: yes, he is. i believe his next court date is actually on thursday, and we will of course be there in the morning around 10:45 to see what is happening with his preliminary hearing and if there is enough evidence for him to go to trial.
4:05 pm
>> live outside city hall in the city. >> with us now is matthew davis, the attorney. ramos was convicted of the killings. he is an undocumented immigrant and known gang member that mistook one of the sons for a rival gang member. >> the family lost in court regarding the sanctuary city policy. i want to go to today, matt. the claim against the bureau of land management. what are your thoughts about that, that they did not have that gun stored away properly? >> first of all, let me just say the family did an excellent job in terms of selecting their lawyers. they got a high-powered lawyer that has a great reputation with the courts. if anyone can help them prevail, they will do a good job. nevertheless, there are going to be some questions that the court is going to have. mostly, is it too attenuated
4:06 pm
between this blms agent's carelessness with his gun and the later murder of the daughter. were there too many intervening steps that took place so it would be unfair to hold the bureau responsible for her death. >> ice wanted them to detain him. the sheriff let him go after all. does the sheriff hold some blame? will this stand? >> there's a question of moral blame and a question of legal blame. of course the sheriff, like a lot of public officials, enjoy what are called immunity from certain types of laws or lawsuits. he may have violated some laws and statutes with his conduct, especially his particular order telling his deputies not to cooperate with ice. the problem is that the family's going to have not only show he violated a law but the
4:07 pm
law he violated was intended to protect against the type of harm that befell kathryn steinle. frank and his team, it's as good a legal team you can get. >> what about immigrations and customs enforcement saying they didn't get the warrant that the city of san francisco, the sheriff's department requested ice to get in order to keep him in jail? >> i think it's going to turn on the facts of the particular case. we don't know if there's enough to see if there's a legal factual conception. >> how difficult will this be for the family? you were in a similar situation. how difficult will this be? >> they have an uphill battle. if there's ever a sympathetic set of facts, they've got them in this particular case. it's going to be a great finger pointing exercise amongst the various city officials, federal agents, and so forth. everyone's going to be pointing the finger at each other.
4:08 pm
perhaps there's a basis, legal or factual. >> they have to be held accountable at times. it seems like they never are. >> the basic rule in the law is that the king is immune from liability. you start with the concept that you can't sue the city or the state, and then you have to find an exception to the rule to allow the suit to go forward. the immunities are so broad they sweep in a lot of outrageous conduct. >> as tara suggested in her live report, do you think the suit enough, the possibility of money having to be exchanged, will that be enough to wake up and make some changes? >> i would hope so. i was hoping it would be 5-6 years ago with the family. rather than learning and making some corrections, the city seems to have gone in a more extreme position with respect
4:09 pm
to its policies with ice. i'm hoping that there's a political wake up on this one. it's just outrageous. if you spoken to her in depth since the death of kate? >> i have not. i can only imagine. i think that all of us had a visceral reaction, and hers just has to be so much more because of what she went there. >> he said she loved san francisco before the death of half her family. did she move out? >> i can't talk about that. other stories that we are following for you making headlines around the bay area today, a san francisco police officer is under investigation for sexual assault. police officials say the allegations involve an officer

california schools have undergone sweeping changes in recent years. transitional kindergarten was added. exit exams instituted for high school graduates which are now
4:32 pm
on hold, and common core curriculum is changing the way teachers instruct their classes. >> we're taking four minutes to talk to the state superintendent who joins us now via skype. i have to get to the exit exams. we know the 5000 seniors once in limbo won't get their diplomas, but i have to ask why we even got to this point. did we not know and specifically yourself that the california high school exit exam wasn't really matching up with the common core standards being taught? >> that's in fact the reason that it was discontinued and we had legislation to discontinue it. there were no students threatened with not being able to go on in their four-year college career. the colleges have accommodated in the past students who don't have the results of the k.c . exit exam. that test is outdated and not aligned to standards. i sponsored ledgelation to put
4:33 pm
it aside and develop a new system of greater accountability and relevance, skills for the 21st century. that's why that bill was so important. we're hoping the governor will sign the bill into law in a few weeks. >> at what point did you know the exit exam wasn't matching up to common core standards? >> about a year ago. we knew we needed to sunset it and set up a legislative process in order to focus on what should be done to replace it. we had the new smarter balance assessment that's computer adaptive, it's excellent, we did an incredible job implementing it statewide. 3.2million students took the test with virtually no hiccups or problems. it requires team work, critical
4:34 pm
thinking, problem solving, and career readiness. >> we know for the class of 2015, those 5000 students got their diplomas. what about this upcoming class, the class of 2016 and future classes? is that still in limbo? when will you know for sure? when you talk about common core, it seems like the exit exam is irrelevant. >> we have more rigorous standards for our students to be prepared for the global economy. my bill i'm sponsoring in the legislature is moving along and strong support we hope will get to the governor's desk. that will sunset the old k.c test. it may take us two years to develop a new exam where we can measure the basic ingredients of what defines a high school
4:35 pm
diploma and success for our students. >> it costs $11 million to administer the tests. would you be in support of axing a future test and leave it up to the teachers if these students can graduate and use that $11 million to boost teacher salaries or put it back into the schools? >> by canceling the july k.c . examed, we saved about $2.5 million that can be used for other purposes. i think there's too much testing overall in our schools. we need accountability, we need data, but we can do it with the new smarter balance testing. we'll go to a process where we consult with parents, teach everies, and education exexcerpts on what should be done to replace the exit exam in the future. >> but you think it should be replaced, though? >> oh, yeah. history is not going to be done again. we're not going to spend $11 million. july i said let's not even spend $2 million on an
4:36 pm
antiquated test that's not relevant. >> let's talk about common core. is it working? how do we know if it's working? and are parents understanding more what it means for their child to be taught this common core? >> this is an exciting time in education. we're going through many transformations which are so positive. the common core i've changed it to talk about california state standards, the california way. it's not just math and english language arts. it's also social studies and science. we want to make sure our students are exposed in all airs ya that prepares them for the job market and college. we have done this because we consulted with parents and business leaders. we have consensus. compared to other states where there's partisan bickering and bickering between the legislature and the governor on whether these standards are great, we know they're great. our business leaders say these
4:37 pm
are great standards, critical thinking, problem solving, not rote memorization. not filling in bubbles on an old-fashioned test. this is a test for the 21st century. and how our teachers teach to this set of skills. >> the state will provide $50 million to connect schools to the internet. talk about how important this is and when can schools start to apply for these grants for the money? >> they can start to get ready right now to apply for grants. i've had an initiative called no child left offline. we need to enter the age. we need textbooks that are digital. the $50 million is going to help us get to school sites that aren't connected to the internet. we did do the first assessment system with adaptive computers. only 900 students out of 3 million did not have access to
4:38 pm
the internet. we're working to close the gap. we connected 226 school sites that did not have access before. we need to go digital. no child left offline. that's my mantra. >> should all schools teach coding? >> yes. that's a great idea. >> got it. appreciate you taking the time for this conversation. have a good rest of the week. >> you too. thank you. chronic homelessness has been a long problem in san francisco. one city leader says there are solutions we can implement now to tackle it. outside our doors, a bay area cooling trend is under way. i'll have your evening forecast and line up your temperatures for tomorrow coming up. a live lookout side, a closer look at the golden gate bridge. traffic starting to pick up in the northbound direction of 101 as folks make their way home. the four on 2 is back in just a bit.

he says better enforcement of city laws is needed. >> let me read this real quick. it's not okay to and crap on sidewalks and on people's homes and other spaces that people use. it's not okay to shoot up in public. those are your words. why did you write it? >> well, we have a lot of challenges right now on our streets in san francisco in terms of how people are acting and behaving. >> the city of san francisco spends 10s if not 100s of millions to attack this issue, but it doesn't seem like it's working. >> we spend almost a quarter billion on homeless related services, and i've been a strong supporter of making sure we're building supportive housing to get people off the street, of mental health services, substance abuse services. we need to distinguish between
4:43 pm
homelessness and street behavior. we need to send a very clear message that certain kinds of behaviors on our streets is not acceptable. >> is this on the police department? >> it's not only on the police department. we have a lot of outreach workers, people who try to get people off the streets, but enforcing the laws are important. the laws are there for a reason. either the voters have adopted them or the board of supervisors have adopted them. some of these laws are, they're on the books, but they're not enforced very much. >> for example? >> so for example, people shooting up in public. people are not allowed to set up camp sites, pitch tents, create living spaces on our sidewalks. >> but they're everywhere. >> and it's not okay. it's against the law, and the law needs to be enforced.
4:44 pm
>> the mayor wants the streets cleaned by the super bowl? >> i'm glad the mayor has indicated he's moving forward with an approach. if it takes the super bowl as a trigger to have that happen, that's great. >> do you feel politics gets in the way of cleaning up streets, that some on the board are too hesitant, too shy to put their foot down and say enough is enough? >> there are many homeless advocates and organizations who simply, you know, put their nose to the grindstone and do the important work of getting people off the streets and getting people stable in housing and other services, but there are some homeless advocates who are very quick to announce that if you ever take issue with how people are behaving on the streets, then that means that you are not compassionate, you're not a liberal. you might as well be a right-
