Teachers unions are the face of the arrogance of power.
From a GQ Pan article in the Epoch Times:
The leader of United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), which represents more than 30,000 employees in the nation’s second largest public school district, said in a recently published interview that learning losses during the pandemic are a myth.
“There’s no such thing as learning loss,” UTLA President Cecily Myart-Cruz told Los Angeles in what the magazine described as a rare sit-down interview, which took place in May. Many parents at that time were criticizing the teachers’ union for pushing back the city’s school reopening plan and for insisting on terms that they said would prevent the return of an in-person, five-day-per-week schooling schedule. …
“Our kids didn’t lose anything,” she said. “It’s OK that our babies may not have learned all their times tables. They learned resilience. They learned survival. They learned critical-thinking skills. They know the difference between a riot and a protest. They know the words ‘insurrection’ and ‘coup.’”
Progressives’ attitude in a nutshell.
