BROWARD SCHOOL DISTRICT BEING SUED BY TEACHERS
While the spread of COVID-19 among Floridians, especially those in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, the Broward school district is obliging teachers and students back into the classrooms. However, the Broward Teacher’s Union says, No Way, Jose!
The Broward Teacher’s Union, which represents some 18,000 teachers, social workers, mental health professionals, counselors, and other staff. is suing the Broward Public School District on the grounds that it is unconstitutional for the district to order teachers and staff back into the classrooms while COVID-19 continues to kill people in Florida. In the meantime, there is an arbitrational lockdown between the Broward Teachers Union (BTU) and the Broward Public School System.
