Biden: Closed Schools are a "National Emergency", But Don't Make Me Open Them; WH Refuses to Prod Teachers Union to Reopen Schools, and other C-Virus Updates

Biden: Closed Schools are a "National Emergency", But Don't Make Me Open Them:
Joe Biden said in an interview that aired on Sunday that long-term school closures and women leaving the workforce during the coronavirus pandemic are "a national emergency."

While speaking with "CBS Evening News" anchor Norah O'Donnell at the White House, Biden also voiced concern about the mental health crisis that has been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

O'Donnell noted that roughly 20 million schoolchildren have been out of the classroom since for almost a year, and a recent CBS News report showed that nearly 3 million women have dropped out of the labor force since last year.

"It is a national emergency," Biden said of all three issues. "It genuinely is a national emergency."
It's a national emergency. But Biden's got a political emergency which is that the teachers' unions who steal millions from taxpayers through property taxes and pump it into the coffers of the Democrat Party don't want to work. --->READ MORE HERE

Many educators are concerned that students are getting inferior instruction via remote learning from home instead of in-person.
Psaki noted she has “teachers in my family” and that instructors want to return to school and prefer “engaging with kids in the classroom.”
“The president is absolutely committed to opening the schools and to keep them open in a safe way,” she said. --->READ MORE HERE
