[Ed. – So much for listening to the scientists.]
White House press secretary Jen Psaki refused to say whether President Joe Biden prioritized students or teachers when it came to reopening schools.
“If it comes down to a binary choice, who would the president choose? The kids or the teachers?” Fox News reporter Kristin Fisher asked during the White House press briefing on Thursday.
Psaki said Kristen’s question was “a little bit unfair” and claimed the president, teachers, and parents all agreed that schools should reopen.
Some teacher unions, however, have repeatedly protested attempts by city and state officials to reopen schools, claiming they remain unsafe during the coronavirus pandemic. A growing number of parents, however, want their children to return to school, citing scientific evidence to argue it is safe.
Republicans continue publicly voicing support for parents and students, knowing that President Biden and Democrats are more beholden to the teachers’ unions.
