Prediction: Sheriffs speaking out bad omen for Dems
An immigration watchdog that is witnessing the border crisis worsen by the day is praising sheriffs across the country for listening to their communities and sounding the alarm.
Jonathan Butcher with The Heritage Foundation points out that 44% of districts were already offering in-person learning as of December 2020. But teachers' unions, which Biden does not want to oppose, are getting in the way of opening the remaining schools.
"Districts are saying that teachers should come back to work in person so that students can come back to school, and unions are telling their members not to," Butcher explains. "They have set up a fight with districts and even city officials."
Butcher says frustrated parents and school officials are wondering what to do about rebellious teachers.
"Their salaries and benefits should go back to the state and be considered a savings," he suggests. "And then the state should create private school scholarships and education savings accounts for students to attend a school of choice."
He also points out that some teachers may be ready to return to work, irrespective of the union's position.
