Randi Weingartner: Hey Serious You Guys, Remote Learning Didn't Work

The head of the American Federation of Teachers, who bullied Democrat politicians into closing the schools for two and a half years so that teachers could pretend they're members of the Laptop Class, examined the data and is ready to offer a tentative conclusion.

American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten was criticized on Sunday for saying "remote education didn't work" and for emphasizing the importance of "relationships" and building trust.

"What we have seen in public education is that technology can't replace teachers. Remote education didn't work, in part because you have to have relationships. You have to build trust," she wrote in a tweet on Friday.

The American Federation for Children's Corey DeAngelis reacted to Weingarten's tweet on Saturday and said "you fought to keep schools closed." Several others called out Weingarten for "forcing" remote education during the pandemic.

Weingarten recently called out critics who blamed her for school closings in a letter to the editor published in the Wall Street Journal. She was responding to a piece written by the Journal's editorial board headlined, "Randi Weingarten Flunks the Pandemic."

"No teacher I know enjoyed remote and hybrid learning--which, pre-pandemic, was championed by Betsy DeVos," Weingarten wrote, blaming the Trump administration. "Not one teacher relished teaching art class via Zoom to 40 pupils, 20 of them in a classroom and 20 at home."

Weingarten is plainly attempting to rewrite history. She knows that public opinion has turned hard against the school closings, and is pretending the teachers unions actually fought against them.

She's gaslighting the entire country.

Corey DeAngelis isn't letting her get away with this.

Corey A. DeAngelis @DeAngelisCorey

you fought to keep schools closed.

then you declined to join me on the Dr. Phil show to talk about how you hurt kids by fighting to keep schools closed. why

Randi Weingarten @rweingarten

Replying to @DeAngelisCorey

This is a lie & you know it. We put out reopening plans, I went on TV & did op Eds talking about how to reopen & we worked w/many to make it happen. What we asked for was to open safely-to protect educators & students from the virus. Disagree on policy,but stop with the lies.

"Reopening plans."

Replying to @rweingarten

no one is falling for your gaslighting, Randi, and you know it.

that's why you constantly close your replies like you closed the schools.

that's why you declined to join the Dr. Phil show to talk about how you hurt kids by keeping schools closed.

More "Reopening plans."
