Former Big Apple mayor Mike Bloomberg urged President Biden to “stand up” to unions and tell teachers to “suck it up” and return to in-person learning, calling virtual learning “a disgrace.”
The former candidate for president sounded off on teachers’ resistance to the push to reopen schools amid the COVID-19 pandemic, calling on the president to push the prioritization of children’s wellbeing.
“It’s time for Joe Biden to stand up and to say, the kids are the most important things, important players here,” Bloomberg said Wednesday on MSNBC. “And the teachers just are going to have to suck it up and stand up and provide an education.”
He added, “Teachers say, ‘well I don’t want to go back because it’s dangerous.’ We have a lot of city and state and federal employees who run risks, that’s part of the job.
