7:31 am
never get back. >> one of the more interesting things when we try to do the number juggling here, you have $10 million worth of teachers and staff not at school. >> right. >> the substitute pay that's going out actually than what it's been in the past who is teaching the kids. >> i think in years past, we would hire former teachers to come back and we would have to pay them more than someone walking off the street because we wanted them to teach the students. right now, we're trying to take anyone that's willing to sub with orate students. students are not learning and it's extremely unfortunate. there is no plan currently from dr. kevin maxwell to help these students in future years and so i'm extremely worried about what's going to happen to them. >> and just to be clear, the 10 million-dollar figure we out tout there paying teachers and staff to not be at school, these are a lot of the -- tears the teachers and staff who had been taken off the job,ad

7:34 am
and make ten, $20,000 more for doing the same or less work. so that's one issue that impacts the school district. teachers operate in complete fear am i going to be replaced today. is it going to be me? that's another issue impacting moral very negative way. i've heard from hundreds of teachers the teachers union president about the mass exodus of our best employees leaving the system. >> you've been on the board for a long time now. what's your hope? what's your plan? what's the next step? i'm hoping that the meeting that rahel is doing meeting with school system leader, meeting with laib leaders we can come to solution to address their concerns but we need the superintendent to show some leadership. what's going to happen to these students? i have a school where the juniors have not had math teacher for three years. they're now juniors. for three years they've not had math teacher. i

8:19 am
>> big week and obvious the paris climate accord the biggest story. 195 nations spent years negotiating this only two countries outside of one syria. the other nicaragua said it didn't go far enough. now there are three in the united states. >> the fascinating thing i think here the response that you're getting you're getting responses from all sides. obviously the base is responding the way you would expect you're also hearing not from the elan musks of the world but some of the financial leaders the goldman sachs of the world. >> well, that's right. and that's the interesting thing a lot the of corporate leaders. bob igor of disney. people at apple. people at she will. a number of places you won necessarily expect very upset about this. this is -- this is going create quiet debate we'll focus on it on sunday as i say 195 nations made this agreement. now only three countries are out of it, and we're one of those
8:20 am
curious, because yes, we're not part of the agreement but it was completely voluntary for all of the things the president talked about all these restrictions imposed on us, it was non-binding it was voluntary the restrictions imposed in terms of what we were going to do to try to reduce carbon emissions by 2025. things that the president, president obama, who negotiated the deal, had voluntarily agreed to. president donald trump could have changed those and stayed in the agreement but he very much wanted to make a statement that he doesn't believe in this, and it has really caused quite a storm around the world i'm not sure the white house totally anticipated how strong the reaction would be on sunday we're going to have an interview with the epa administrator scott pruett to talk about all of t this. >> that should be good and interesting too, chris, by sunday once the knee jerk reactions die down and people have a chance to dig a little bit more into this what the reaction will be. i want to ask your opinion real quick on the travel ban going to the supreme court asking for an emergency motion there when it comes to the supreme court.
8:21 am
will happen there? >> well, you know, it will be interesting to see. this could be one of those decisions obviously with neal gorsuch president trump's nominee on the court you've got four solid conservatives. you've got four committed i would say liberals that certainly the way they lean in terms of their judicial and then you've got anthony kennedy the big swing vote right in the middle. although sometimes in terms of how judges have reaction to do this those who believe that it is a religious test and that that 52 lates the establishment cause -- clause of the constitution when it comes to banning muslims this doesn't necessarily follow political or he had loll lines it will be interesting to see what's going on here. the interesting point, and i had a an interview last week with the head of homeland security, general john kelly the whole point of this ban or delay in terms of refugees and visas was to trying to determine a vetting program for 120
8:22 am
we've already passed 120 days. so if they put the vetting program into effect it wouldn't need the travel ban. >> right. exactly. that's an excellent point. chris, so much to talk about and still 48 hours away from fox news sunday. >> who knows what we'll get in the next 48 hours. i shall also say our power player of the week, we have a sample of some of the things that very interesting people politicians, and cultural figures, and oprah, variety of people have been giving the college graduate as commence many speeches. you'll be interesting to hear how sending the class of 2017 into the world. >> you've done it before. are you doing any commence many speeches this year. >> no, i am not. i think class of 2017 decided the last person we need advice from is me. >> no, stop. do you an excellent job. chris thank you very much. see you for jam packed fox knew sunday sunday morning. >> thanks, steve. i was 22:00 right now. ♪ developing overnight tragedy at a casino in the philippines leaves thick people deed dead. the victims died from smoke inhalation an after armed man
