The Biden administration has appointed the person who pushed hardest for schools to remain closed during the pandemic to a new position within the Department of Homeland Security.
As Fox News reports, Randi Weingarten, the controversial head of the American Federation of Teachers union, will be one of the new members of a Homeland Security Academic Partnership Council.
The newly formed council “will provide strategic and actionable recommendations to the Secretary on campus safety and security, improved coordination, research priorities, hiring, and more,” according to the DHS.
The DHS claims the council will “support our mission to safeguard the American people, and help our country think through and prepare for whatever threats lie ahead.”
Weingarten recently attempted to rewrite history, claiming that she spent every waking day during the pandemic trying to open schools, despite the fact that her union aggressively pushed for lockdowns at the local level, and lobbied to keep them in place.
Twitter Community notes exposed Weingarten’s lies, with Elon Musk chiming in tweeting a pants on fire emoji.
Furthermore, Weingarten has no experience in security, so the appointment is even more baffling.
Randi Weingarten has gone from dictating the CDC’s school reopening guidance to now advising the Department of Homeland Security on how to keep students safe.— Nicki Neily (@nickineily) June 22, 2023
Randi should have NO role in the government.
The Biden Admin puts teachers unions over parents every single time. https://t.co/fFWjJxnB6R
Few Americans have done more damage than Randi Weingarten. She put politics & powerful interest groups over kids and pushed school lockdowns that led to the worst learning loss in decades.— Congressman Rudy Yakym (@RepRudyYakym) June 22, 2023
So of course, the Biden administration is giving her a promotion.https://t.co/eLD90wa6GT
Randi Weingarten chose appeasing teacher unions over getting students back in the classroom during the pandemic.— Congressman Ben Cline (@RepBenCline) June 21, 2023
Now, math and reading scores for the Nation’s 13-year-olds are at the worst decline in decades.
Why is DHS rewarding bad policy? https://t.co/Rg0IBd0mgA
Weingarten is apparently being rewarded for falling into line with the administration and championing the policy that has done untold damage to a generation of young people.
