(TheConservativeNews.org) – Schools in many states across the United States are either fully closed or operating on the basis of some form of hybrid learning. This is despite our rapidly climbing vaccination rate and the fact other kinds of organizations have returned to normal operations. As a result, some are beginning to wonder whether there’s some motivation other than COVID-19 at play.
On Tuesday, May 18, American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten appeared on C-SPAN and answered questions about why some schools were taking so long to resume full lessons. During the interview, she revealed her organization provided the CDC with exact phrasing for some of the measures they instituted to keep school closures going.
This comes alongside yesterday’s news that a senior CDC official is stepping down amid accusations she colluded with teacher’s unions to keep schools closed.
It’s worth remembering teachers have been on full pay throughout the pandemic, while many of their students have suffered a severely diminished schooling experience. Should their unions be allowed to hold this level of power?
