The New York Post confirms what many have suspected regarding the collaboration between the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and its influence on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), relative to reopening America’s public schools. Reporter Jon Levine has written an outstanding exposé titled, “Powerful teachers union influenced CDC on school reopenings, emails show.”
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky and AFT President Randi Weingarten are revealed as colluding influence peddlers, as the well-funded teachers union lobbied the Biden administration, which it supported as longstanding donors to national democrat candidates.

The Center for Responsive Politics which details their contributions, notes that the unions give at least 94 percent of their $multimillion political contributions to democrats.
The dues paying educrat teachers, who are being paid for not teaching this year, are the same ones who went out on strike in Arizona and other states, abandoning over 840,000 Arizona students, in violation of their contractual agreements. They demanded and received a 20 percent pay increase for their part-time jobs from Gov. Doug Ducey, who caved after declaring he would not agree to their demands. They are also the ones who spend more time influencing American children than many parents do. Remember, self admitted Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders had strong primary election support from younger voters, who have no concept of the harsh realities of Socialism, as detailed by noted historian Lee Edwards, Ph.D.
