It will be interesting to see where the parent backlash against the teacher unions goes.
Parents are pushing harder to have their children taught while teachers claim special privileges.
It is not clear to me why teachers think it is OK for hospital and grocery store workers to go to work, but some how schools are a death trap.
The parents are experiencing this callous attitude first hand. As Liesl Hickey reports in USA Today, some are preparing to sue teachers unions in Arizona, California, Illinois, and Virginia. If teachers don’t go back to work, there will be many more such lawsuits. If that fails, it’s time to start firing teachers. In the end, the inflexibility of the teachers unions is a function of its individual members. There is no significant risk associated with in-person instruction. The teachers know it, and the science proves it. Most importantly, the parents know it. If teachers remain intransigent and the Democrats acquiesce in their obstinance, parents will certainly revolt at the ballot box.
