UFT Shoots Itself and NYPost Gladly Points it Out… BUT Cherry Picks “Science”

Unsurprisingly the NYPost has managed to get the narrative of school reopening back to familiar ground: the union is bad, the administration is incompetent, and children and taxpayers suffer. And, as is often the case in complicated issues like the reopening of schools, the Post has cherry-picked a report to prove its point. In this case the Post is using the union’s cry to “let science decide” when and how schools should reopen as the basis for calling them out for hypocrisy. Why? Because as noted in an earlier blog the American Pediatric Society has declared the reopening of schools to be an urgent need… and the members of that group are clearly “science”! But, as noted in my recent post, the APS recommendations for reopening are costly and, for the most part, impractical. If the union was smart they would agree to reopen IF AND ONLY IF all the conditions set forth by the APS were met. That would end their “hypocrisy” and force the POST to either advocate for the funds needed to meet the APS standards or find another way to get the narrative back to the well trod path they want to walk down.
