Stossel Column: Teachers Unions Fail Science

January 14th, 2021 6:44 PM

Is your child's school open now? Probably not -- because teachers unions say that reopening would "put their health and safety at risk." They keep schools closed by lobbying and protesting.

It’s always fun when the brave journalists of the Washington Post put on their pith helmets and venture forth to do some anthropological reporting from the hinterlands.
