6:05 am
actions that they think can be supported by the evidence and i'm not sure that this is really anything other than window dressing and kind of a political move. >> what they have done by passing this bill and the governor signing it is doing something concrete and saying secrecy has no place in the criminal justice system. >> the new law goes into effect next year. more details governor brown also signed a bill making it clear that taking pictures of police or videotaping officers is perfectly legal. you may recall the high-profile case from april, a u.s. marshall smashing the phone of a southern california woman who was recording police activity in her neighborhood. but there are limits to photographing and recording officers. it's illegal to obstruct an arrest or film or private property where you don't have the right to be. >> 6:05. san jose city council giving official approval now for sjpd to use drones in a pilot program. there's a catch, drones can only

6:08 am
it's a small percentage but if it's your child's class that done have a permanent teacher assigned, it is a very big deal. adding to that problem is the fact that it is very difficult for the san jose unified school district as well as other districts to fill the positions because there is a bit of a teacher short annual, according to the "san jose mercury news." here in san jose unified school district they hired 200 new teachers for this school year but there are still 12 openings that are still unfilled. it is, again, small percentage, but there is increasing demand for the teachers who are available and there are fewer people seeking teaching credentials. this is a shortage that could go on for quite some time. so for now, students could find that they will be in larger classrooms, perhaps in combination classrooms, at least for the beginning of the year as the districts try to sort things out because san jose unified not the only with openings but san jose unified is starting today. kris sanchez, "today in the
