The Biden White House continues to not acknowledge the safety of allowing children to go back to school, despite recommendations from the CDC that shows that a return to normal classroom learning is safe.
Biden previously remarked that schools would “probably” be open in the Fall, but now his team is pushing that prediction forward. Presidential counselor Anita Dunn did not commit to K-12 classrooms being reopened even by September. Even Jake Tapper from CNN pushed Dunn on Biden’s past comments, and highlighted that the science shows a return to in-person instruction is ok.
“Eighty percent of teachers have now been vaccinated,” Dunn said. “President Biden said ‘probably,’ he did not say absolutely…if Americans get vaccinated, he does think schools should be reopened in September.”
Anita Dunn, an adviser to the President, says that schools should probably reopen in September if people continue to get vaccinated, adding that it is not absolute because "it's an unpredictable virus." #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/VzvykrW7sB

Anita Dunn echoing President Biden earlier this week, the science shows kids should be in school so they “probably” will be by September. Curious at what point the self-appointed party of science is going to actually follow the science 🤷🏼♀️ https://t.co/C1snbcLoBR

Dunn also did not acknowledge the Biden team’s obvious coordination with teachers unions in creating the coronavirus guidelines. The leadership of teachers unions have pushed for schools to remain closed, at the expense of children.
