Biden slammed for taking credit for reopening schools: 'Will take years for students to dig out'



In a blistering opinion piece, The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board accused President Biden of trying to rewrite history after his administration took credit for reopening schools after COVID-19 closures.

The White House released a statement Monday, touting Biden’s “swift actions and historic investments” that led to “every school in America” safely opening for in-person instruction after the pandemic. The WSJ’s editorial board mocked the notion this was something the White House should be proud of writing, “What an achievement—three and a half years after the start of the pandemic, all schools are open.”

Schools would have been open much sooner if the administration hadn’t followed the advice of teachers’ union leader, Randi Weingarten, the WSJ argued.

“The Administration omits that its own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention took dictation from union chief Randi Weingarten for its reopening guidelines,” the WSJ wrote. “Those guidelines gave unions in urban school districts like Chicago cover to delay the return to full in-person learning.”
