Great news, everybody! Not only has Joe Biden managed to meet and exceed the intentionally low bar he set for COVID19 vaccinations, but he’s also met his school reopening goal.

Is there nothing our president can’t accomplish?

More from the AP (via NBC News):

Schools have been a priority for Biden as he works to jump-start the economy and address learning setbacks among students. In March he signed a $1.9 trillion relief bill that included $123 billion to help schools reopen and recover from the pandemic. Last month he proposed a budget that would significantly expand education funding, with a proposal to double Title I funding for low-income schools.

Biden in December pledged to reopen “the majority of our schools” in his first 100 days in office. In February he reframed the goal, promising to have most schools from kindergarten through eighth grade opened five days a week in that period.

Cardona has rallied behind Biden’s efforts, saying schools will need help addressing disparities that were worsened by the pandemic. On Thursday, he urged schools and education officials to “maintain a high level of urgency” even as more schools reopen.

“This success is the result of hard work and intentional collaboration between the administration, states, school districts, educators and families across the country,” he said. “Nothing can replace in-person learning, and thousands of schools have made that a reality for millions of students.”

Thank you, President Biden! It takes a real hero to adjust expectations in such a way as to make sure that you’ll exceed them despite yourself.

Well, 54% is closer to 100% than it is to 0%, so … success!

It might, yes. As the article notes, high schools are not included in the survey that yielded these extremely impressive and awesome results.

We’ll leave you with this. Suffice it to say, Joe Biden might want to hold off on congratulating himself too much:
