It is sad whenever you see anyone that is supposed to be a team fighting with each other.
the problem with the Biden Administration is that it almost seems that they are going to be doing this the whole time he is in office. They are going against each other so often it isn’t surprising that there are already reports of people wanting to get out of jobs they just got to.
President Biden on Tuesday night distanced himself from previous comments by White House press secretary Jen Psaki that the administration’s goal for its first 100 days was to have more than 50% of schools 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’s time in 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.
But Biden at a CNN town hall Tuesday night said that Psaki was not correct in saying that having half of schools open one day per week — essentially getting schools 10% open overall — is the White House’s goal for the end of its first 100 days.
“I think we’ll be close to that at the end of the first hundred days,” Biden said of elementary and middle schools.
Biden did not specifically say what his definition of an open K-8 school at the end of his first 100 days would be. But he did say that schools may be open over the summer to help make up for lost learning for students — a comment that also contradicted Psaki.
