Teachers in Florida can’t strike, but they can quit. And in Brevard County, that’s happening in record numbers. The union calls it a form of protest. Parents call it a big concern.
The Teachers Union had a big victory on Friday in their ongoing contract battle with the district, but it might not be enough to reverse the trend of teachers hitting the door. A magistrate judge finds Brevard County could and should give teachers a raise. If that happens, the union says the resignations will stop, if not, more are on the way.
“Every other school district in the state has managed to give their teachers a decent raise, our district needs to do the same,” said Anthony Colucci, the President of the Brevard Federation of Teachers, looking over the report and recommendations of Magistrate Judge Thomas Young.
Judge Young encourages the school system to fund the union’s proposed pay raises. The school system now has 20 days to announce its intent. If the district doesn’t budge- Collucci says a wave of teachers will say goodbye.
Mike Magnoli Love Bug
Article by Mike Magnoli;
As the seasonal invasion of the love bugs continues all over Central Florida, people are getting online and searching for creative ways to get rid of them.
The University of Florida says nothing gets rid of lovebugs for good, but there is one trick that can attract them away from your front door. Fill a white bucket or bowl with baby oil and water. Then watch as the lovebugs gather. This method will not get rid of lovebugs, but it will provide some temporary relief, as it will keep them away from the area around the bowl.
The Brevard County Agricultural Center, which is an extension of the University of Florida, told Fox 35 that lovebugs love the color white. So, putting out a white bowl with water and baby oil will cause them to swarm to their death. However, this method does not take them too far away and once the bowl is full, they will continue to swarm.
The Brevard County Agricultural Center also said that internet hacks are bogus. For example, they said that using citrus or minty smells to keep lovebugs away does not work. Using a wet dryer sheet on your car to get dead lovebugs off also does not work.
They said to use a sponge with a mesh or net texture, liquid detergent, and some warm water. Also, remember to not let the dead bugs stick too long, as they will ruin your paint.
