Dear Commons Community,
Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers, called for the reopening of the schools in Fall 2021. She cited the increasing success of vaccination deployment as the main reason for her position. She also mentioned several issues that still have to be more fully addressed such as poor ventilation systems in older school buildings, spacing issues in over-crowed schools, and getting more students vaccinated. She concluded her interview by voicing optimism that schools will be fully reopened in the fall.
The video above is taken from an interview she gave yesterday on CBS News.
