7:23 am
i don't know what i would do if i had a couple of kids, or any amount of kids, in mike elementary school. this enterovirus out break has spread to 43 states in this country. a lot of people affected. >> it has been blamed for deaths of a new jersey preschool student a little four year-old and another student in his class has been tested for the the respiratory virus. >> we have a couple kids, two more kids over at chop now yesterday. they have five children over there with the enterovirus, with this paralysis kind of a feeling. >> we have talked about this. when we have a enterovirus
7:24 am
which is similar to the polio viruses, you can get paralysis. now let's talk about this particular enterovirus and break it down again. number one, lots of kids get it. they get mild symptoms, cold, cough. i woke up this morning and my little amy had a cough. i'm thinking all kind of things. she's in preschool. so i felt her head and we will just watch her. we are keeping an eye on it. elizabeth, if you are listening, watch her good a lot of people are waking up with colds this time of the year. when do you put them in the car and drive them to your office. >> when you have a child that has a history of asthma or lung problems and in this time frame they are having a cold, you might want to call within of the pediatricians and say hey, by the way, we have a wonderful doctor, and i checked in with her over the weekend to see how many calls she's getting. she's getting a lieutenant of
7:25 am
calls. so if your child out there has worsening symptoms of shortness of breath and they have a history of asthma get that child checked out. what is the harm other than safety. >> with this enterovirus i feel like some people get common colds, others are ending up dead. is that the only difference here is that history. >> we don't necessity exactly why some kids get viciously sick and others don't. what we do know is that when these kids come into the hospital, some of them need to be on the ventilator and some of them actually will develop a bacterial super infection and we have seen this. this is not something new. we have seen this in the past. >> oh, no enterovirus has been around a long time. >> also when you get a very bad viral infection you tend to be susceptible to bacterial infections. on the walls of penn , the
7:26 am
1918 pandemic, flu pandemic, lots of doctors names are listed there. what happens is they get this virus, it kicks the immune system's butt and then you get the eye bad bacteria. >> a lot of parents are concerned especially when it comes to the four year-old who passed away in new jersey. people are saying he went to bed. he had pink eye. people were thinking cold, cough, sneezing we are not thinking pink eye and next day he does president wake up. >> i think if you look at these children they develop symptoms fairly rapidly. >> there is no harm. >> and as a primary care internist i'm telling you it will be a perfect storm. everyone needs to get a flu shot this year because it will make it less complicated. the flu shot will not protect anyone from the enterovirus but it will make my job easier because a lot of people that would get flu-like symptoms will be protect from the old fashion flu. >> which kills about 36,000 people every year, the flu.
7:27 am
>> viruses are nothing to worry about. and if you are out there, you want to make sure and if you are a child who is sick, get them looked at? wash your hand. >> yes, make sure they have school, they wipe down desk and everything else. >> lets have a show, how about a half april hour. >> all right. >> we have to get to this other big story, the the philadelphia teachers outraged, a a lot of them after the school reform commission canceled their contract. can they do that? well, the chairman of the src is sitting right next to us in two minutes. if you have a question for bill green

7:31 am
>> it is quite lovely. >> hi. >> things have calm down. >> sorry, sue. >> i'm still looking at it, yes, now you are too. now it is a lovely start to the day. we have a lot of clouds around and a lot more scheduled for today. our times of sunshine are, what we treasure this morning. so we will start off with a look at bus stop buddy, and what he is doing this morning. there is the the just in case umbrella because we cannot rule out another stray shower later this afternoon. we have had some showers moving through but we are seeing some sunshine right now. we will give you a seven out of ten. times of sunshine. also a lot of clouds and scattered showers especially later this afternoon we will see some pop up. this round is not out of here just yet but these showers are light, not all this is even making it to the ground here in delco and new castle county delaware. that is all we can see right now. 63 degrees. 11 miles an hour wind out of the south.
7:32 am
67 percent relative humidity. sunrise at 7:03. seventy-five during the day, showers and a few loud thunderstorms tonight, overnight low 58 degrees. that is your fox cast for tuesday. we just her about this accident on i-95 southbound so now we are telling you. it is approaching bridge street. vehicles are new on the shoulder but you can see from this map that things are backup on southbound i-95 a how yourself extra time there. in limerick king road and lewis road there are reports of an accident there and in north philadelphia we had a fire overnight in the row house dauphin and ninth street a void that area and take berks or cumberland instead, mike? thanks, sue. 7:32. in i a sudden move yesterday 9:30 we reported this as breaking news, the philadelphia school reform commission a announced they are canceling the teachers contract, and most of the 15,000 union members will now be required to pay into their
7:33 am
medical plan. saving the district millions of dollars. >> many including the teachers union were completely caught off guard and vowed to fight this. here's union president jerry jordan. >> when you collectively bargain it takes two parties. it takes giving some and taking some. what the district has done is they have said we want it all. we want it all and that is unacceptable and we will not agree to it. a member making $55,000 a year will pay 13 percent of the premium for a health care package that they have totally change, it is in the one that we negotiated. how dare they. >> so the head of the src is here with us bill green, good to see you. >> thanks for coming in. >> you knew this was coming. >> i knew it was coming. >> so why did you do it. >> well, it really wasn't a
7:34 am
sudden move. it was a quite deliberate move. since i -- bring was on the src, since my nomination and my first meeting at src and august 15th when we made the announcement to open schools i have been very clear if we could not reach an accommodation with the pft i would be forced to use src's powers and impose unilateral terms. you know, unfortunately, after 21 months of negotiating and a hundred negotiating sessions, it was clear that the pft was just playing a delaying game and so we had to act and hopefully this action will expedite a resolution with the pft and bring them to the table in the serious way. >> how did you ask them to pay in the health plan. >> depending on the salary you make it is somewhere between 27 and $70 a month. much less, including most americans including my own plan. >> what is this money expect to do for the students.
7:35 am
>> it will give us 54 million-dollar this year, 30 million of which will be in schools by april, 15 million of which will be in schools this month. >> why is this district always begging for money. >> the beauty is in the last six months we have gotten 230 million-dollar of a current predictable revenue which means next budget season we won't be putting out some doomsday horrible scenario for what will happen because we have taken all of the one time stop gap money that we relied on last three years and we have 120 million from the sales tax, roughly 41 to 07 million from the cigarette tax and 54 million this year from the labor action and 70 million next year. so we will start with an almost balanced budget next year. so everything we get from the state, from the city, we can make an argument it is being invested in children and classrooms. >> you know, we're get questions on twitter. by the the way i told you into
7:36 am
the take this src john. >> you did, mike. >> it is hard. >> somebody wants to know. >> did i listen to you. >> no, you don't, nobody does good will bill green pay my mortgage? this is what we're getting. >> i think there is a lot of misunderstanding about the impact of this. it is unfortunate that we had to take this action but when we cannot really tell philadelphia's children and families i'm sorry but we cannot give you resources you need in the classroom, restore your ap classes, restore music and et cetera because pft won't let them pay 27 to $70 a month for health care. >> how many district around the state of pennsylvania pay all the health care benefits for their teachers, just us. >> is there only one other district in the commonwealth where teachers don't distribute to health care we got this from a retire teachers, with the alliance
7:37 am
for philadelphia schools. they vary deliberately did this very quickly at 9:30 yesterday morning so not only could the teachers not be there, to defend themselves, parents could not weigh in either. people are upset about the timing of this too. >> well... >> like the sunshine act you are supposed to made public, was it deliberate. >> it was in the inquirer, but this is a labor relations and litigation issue and so those are issues that can be discussed in private by the src because they involve both of those things. frankly, we went before the same time we had src meeting when we made this approval. you don't tell people a week in advantage you will sue them or they would beat to you court. unfortunately when you are involved in litigation you have to take your lawyers advice about how you to proceed. >> so this goes to court now. >> we filed along with the secretary of education of the commonwealth, declaratory judgment action in commonwealth court to have
7:38 am
them declare our action legal and valid. of course, they are legal. it is very unfortunate that the powers of the src are broad and but they are limited in this respect. in order to take this action we had to terminate the contract, we could in the just impose health care terms. we followed only legal strategy available to us under state law. >> is it time to get rid of the src in the because of you but everybody else in the the country they vote in school board members. governor appoints three and mayor appoints two. >> it would be a disaster to have citizen elect school board. >> why can't we take care of ourselves. >> i'll tell you why, because people we elect in low turnout elections are not qualified. that is a high turnout election during a mayor's race the party would control who gets elect to the school board
7:39 am
and it would be bad for taxpayers. city council is you're elected represent any of terms of fund ago this will go to the district. >> do you think it ties blue a city in a blue state. >> it is just i think that within a bad choice. >> you don't think they should have a voice of some sort. >> they do, they elect mayor and city council and src's job and it will happen while i'm there is to fiscally get the the school district in fiscal shape and eliminate itself once we're in fiscal shape. i hepp to accomplish that in the next few years. >> thanks for coming n. >> pretty tough morning. >> we will talk more. >> thanks. >> 7:39. lets go to the big wide shot and then come back in two lets go to the big wide shot and then come back in two mi
