Last week, the CDC issued a statement saying that the “preponderance of available evidence” indicates that schools can operate safely with students in the classroom.
However, some schools continue to remain closed because teachers unions are refusing to budge and the Biden Administration is standing with them instead of trying to get students back in the classroom:
- WSJ (Editorial): “Chicago Teachers Union vs. Biden”
- The Washington Examiner (Editorial): “Joe Biden sacrifices children to the teachers unions”
- National Review (Editorial): “The Teachers’ Unions’ Ransom Demand”
During the campaign and the transition process, President Biden vowed that he would “listen to the scientists.” The scientists have said that schools can be opened safely. Unfortunately, the President is siding with his political allies and big labor groups over what the experts are saying.
