During an interview with CNN on Thursday, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) said that the Biden-Harris administration will defer to both health experts and teachers’ unions on opening elementary schools.
Host Jake Tapper asked, “Madam vice president-elect, most health experts, including Dr. Fauci, agree that elementary schools should be the last thing to close. Bars should close. Restaurants should close. But elementary schools should be the very last one. … But there are many teachers and teachers’ unions who are advocating for remote-only education to stick around because they are afraid, understandably, of getting the virus. Will the Biden-Harris administration defer to the health experts or to the teachers’ unions when it comes to elementary schools?”
