AFT President Randi Weingarten Approval Poll

Many Americans are still furious with Randi Weingarten, the President of the American Federation of Teachers, over her role in the COVID school shutdowns.

Randi Weingarten, told The Guardian in 2020 that opening schools closed by COVID, would be “reckless, callous, and cruel.”

“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 told John Catsimatidis on his AM 770 WABC radio show in 2020.

Since then, Randi Weingarten has attempted to shift blame onto others for her advocacy to keep schools closed.
