TEACHERS UNION PRESIDENT CASTS DOUBT ON SCHOOLS REOPENING FULL-TIME

“There’s no way that you’re going to have full-time schools for all the kids and all the teachers the way we used to have it,” Weingarten said Sunday on John Catsimatidis’s radio show.

Weingarten said that schools would need massive funding in order to safely continue operating under public health standards.
