They forget there’s real people on the other side of those letters that they’re writing. … 他们不知道我们幕后的知识, and it’s really unfortunate they want to pick on us because they want their babysitters back,” board member Lisa Brizendine appeared to say.

I totally hear that because my brother had a delivery service for medical marijuana. The clientele were parents with their kids in school,” board member Richie Masadas appeared to say.

拜登 on Tuesday night distanced himself from previous comments by 白色的房子 press secretary Jen Psaki that the administration’s goal for its first 100 days was to have more than 50% 的 学校 open at least one day per week.

That goal was criticized as unambitious as it had essentially already been met by school districts partially opening on their own before Biden came into office. There was also speculation that the White House was trying to avoid upsetting teachers unions, which are a major force in the Democratic Party and have in many cases strongly opposed school reopening efforts.

What I’m talking about is I said opening the majority of schools in K-through-eighth grade because they’re the easiest to open, the most needed to be opened, in terms of the impact on children and families having to stay home,” 拜登说.
