‘I’ll have your back’

National Education Association (NEA) President Becky Pringle supports strategies laid out in Biden’s plan. I don’t feel comfortable that she’s roaming around masklessNYC teacher on unvaccinated colleague “Educators remain committed to working together to ensure our local schools are the safest places in the community for every student, educator and family. As students and educators go back to school this year, we are focused on keeping students safe, learning and engaged. That is why the National Education Association strongly supports President Biden’s new COVID-19 vaccinate-or-test requirements in workplaces with 100 or more employees and call for state vaccination requirements for all educators,” Pringle said in a statement.

“Let me be blunt. My plan also takes on elected officials with states that are undermining you and these life-saving actions. Right now, local school officials are trying to keep children safe in a pandemic while their governor picks a fight with them and even threatens their salaries or their jobs. Talk about bullying in schools,” Biden remarked. The president also took aim at elected officials such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), who threatened to withhold funding and teachers’ salaries in districts that impose school mask mandates.

Biden also called on schools to set up regular testing for students, teachers, and staff consistent with CDC guidance. Biden also called on all governors to require vaccinations for all teachers and staff in an effort “to protect our youngest, most precious Americans and give parents that comfort. Vaccination requirements in schools are nothing new. They work, and they’re overwhelmingly supported by educators and their unions and all school officials trying to do the right thing by our children. I’ll always be on your side.”

“I don’t feel it is appropriate to have kids back in school if they can’t get vaccines. Or have a remote option. All staff should be vaccinated if they can get it, medically. It’s insane that some teachers don’t want to get vaccinated without any medical reason. A teacher right across from me is not vaccinated, which makes me nervous. I have a newborn at home. I don’t feel comfortable that she’s roaming around maskless.” Reggie Wade is a writer for Yahoo Finance. Follow him on Twitter at @ReggieWade. A third-grade teacher in New York City who wishes to stay anonymous tells Yahoo Finance that she believes that parents of students who cannot be vaccinated yet should have virtual learning options.

“Vaccines must be combined with other mitigation measures, like masking, distancing, improving ventilation, and testing. That is why NEA fully supports the administration’s call for increased screening testing in public schools,” she added. Story continues
