This is quite the take from the Chicago Teachers Union on those who want kids back in school:
The push to reopen schools is rooted in sexism, racism and misogyny.

Update: They’ve deleted it, but not before people captured a screenshot;
Deleted… But not forgotten
Teacher unions are a threat to the livelihoods of kids… They do not have their best interest at heart… All they care about is how to steal your money and do less than bare minimum… Followed by them praising themselves as if they're heroes pic.twitter.com/JFW1CcBLeI

The Union account also retweeted this calling out “white folks”:
Been feeling this lately. We can discuss the merits of reopening but the conversation cannot be rooted in white supremacy. White folks questioning BIPOC's intelligence, especiall women of color. Our ability to "understand the science." The coded language is hella out of pocket. https://t.co/xL1GkFGzGG

Are you serious? You cannot be serious. You all shouldn't teach children b/c you're morons. https://t.co/keoPqsyJwa

Can they show just a little bit of concern for the kids falling behind?
Then why are minority parents suing in California saying virtual learning has left their children behind?
