Teachers’ Union Pres: We’ll “Try” to Open Schools in Fall
In what can reasonably be interpreted as proof that teachers’ unions will be making no real effort to completely reopen schools by the fall, American Federation of Teachers (AFT) president Randi Weingarten said her union would simply “try” to reopen schools by then.
The comments came during an MSNBC interview in which Weingarten called the CDC’s latest guidance a “curveball,” and suggested that reopenings by the fall aren’t a done deal. “So the bottom line is, we’re going to keep kids safe, we’re going to keep our members safe, we’re going to try to open up schools, and we’re going to move through this political battlefield,” she said.
The comments don’t exactly inspire confidence, as Weingarten also recently said the AFT has been trying to reopen schools since April 2020.
We tried to reopen schools safely since April 2020…

If “trying” for the past sixteen months accomplished nothing, who thinks they’ll figure it out in the next few months?
