Precisely one reason I did not participate, nor support, the national teachers’ unions during the last fifteen years of my career…I did not support their politics and saw far too much hypocrisy and wasteful spending…here is the latest example…

American Federation of Teacher’s President Randi Weingarten seems to have been at the forefront of throwing roadblocks in the way of more teachers going back to schools and having more schools opened, claiming that she wants more protections/guarantees for the teachers if they do go back.
A couple of weeks ago, we reported how she was questioning the CDC guidance that 3 feet of social distance spacing was sufficient for kids in schools. “We are not convinced,” Weingarten said. So follow the science, right? Sure sounds like a convenient denial.
But some noticed further hypocrisy when Weingarten posted about a trip that she’d taken on social media with “Boutique Airlines.”
So she’s one of those liberals that makes noises about climate change then goes and takes a private plane instead of a three-hour drive because it’s convenient to her for her meetings which she has to do in person, unlike those school kids who can just have their education relegated to Zoom.
AND there is much more stuff about the ridiculous teachers’ unions here…so glad to have retired…
