[Ed. – It doesn’t seem very bright to believe any of the major shareholders in COVID, Inc. has really had a change of heart. Wonder what’s going on here, with the mask mandate lifted and Ms. Weingarten suddenly all-in for reopening the schools, both on the same day.]
The president of the the second largest teachers union in the country called for a fully reopening of schools in the fall, saying in a speech on Thursday that the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is “all in” on returning to full in-person learning.
The remarks by Randi Weingarten come as some school districts remain hesitant to reopen, despite guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicating that it is safe to do so.
“The United States will not be fully back, until we are fully back in school. And my union is all in,” Weingarten said in a virtual address, announcing that the AFT would dedicate $5 million in a campaign to support reopening.
