Well if there’s anyone who’s proven she’s against American excellence, or average Americans doing well, it’s AOC. Remember she cost her community the Amazon 2nd headquarters deal and over 25,000 jobs just a year or so ago. Well folks, she’s at it again.
“I’m calling on Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo to raise revenue to fund universal child-care programs, significantly increase staffing at schools and fund the infrastructure improvements, including ventilation, that our school buildings need to be safe,” the New York congresswoman said in a statement obtained by the New York Post.
She said her call for new taxes comes after discussions with parents and teachers from her district that schools are not yet ready to reopen due to safety concerns.
“It’s clear that there’s significant evidence to suggest that schools are not safe to re-open,” she said. “Poorly ventilated and unsanitized classrooms, ambiguous or ineffective health screening, COVID testing and contact tracing protocols, and severe staffing shortages, on top of COVID cases in at least 55 schools, all indicate we are not ready to re-open.”
Her claim about widespread COVID in district schools is at odds with a new study from Brown University conducted in conjunction with more than 550 schools across 46 states. During a two-week period beginning Aug. 31, the incidence of coronavirus infection among teachers and students was less than 1 percent, the study found.
