We are seeing much revisionist history underway as Randi Weingartan, head of the AFT teacher’s union pretends she was always and continuously working to get schools to re-open – even though there is overwhelming evidence in her own social media posts and news reports, that this is not true.
Fauci now says we should not have a blame game and regarding schools, the school where his daughter teaches was only closed a couple of weeks he said.
Here in Oregon:
- Schools were ordered closed beginning March 12, 2020.
- Governor Brown directed schools to re-open by mid April 2021. But allowed for continued “hybrid instruction” including online, which is what many districts continued to do. Full in person instruction would not return until the fall of 2021, when the state restored and mandated a regular in person school year.
- The mask mandate in schools was ended March 12, 2022.
The teacher’s union continued to largely push for keeping schools closed and remote – as of the spring of 2022, while simultaneously claiming they wanted in person instruction.
There are reasons many of us no longer believe a single word coming from public health experts and view epidemiology as a failed, primitive field of study.
