It makes me laugh how Biden’s medical brain trust continues to undermine the negotiating position of the teachers’ unions. Last week, when Biden was taking fire for not standing up to the unions more forcefully, Fauci went on TV to remind everyone that schools are pretty darned safe. In fact, children are less likely to get infected inside a school building than outside of it.
Today it was new CDC director Rochelle Walensky’s turn. One of the debates raging over reopening schools is whether we should prioritize teachers for vaccination so that they’ll be safe when they go back to class. Um, you don’t need to do that, said Walensky. Schools can be safe even for adults who aren’t immune.
All we need now is for the new surgeon general to say “No, seriously, open the schools” for the trifecta.
