President Joe Biden, promising them multimillions of dollars, said he was going to open all schools in his first 100 days. Maybe he didn’t get it that this is up to state and local officials responsive to teachers unions, not so responsive to scientists now saying it’s safe. The unions apparently would rather ruin young lives that teachers were hired to enhance.
They are saying, OK, they will open maybe half the schools for person-to-person training at least one day a week, but that’s it. This is despite scientists saying students actually seem more in danger out of school than in school. Schools still must heed sound health rules. The Centers for Disease Control is on hand to assist with instructions, although local advice from health facilities is needed, too, because of disparate situations.
