“To avoid becoming an impoverished, crime-ridden nation, our families and neighborhoods need high-performing teachers dedicated to improving literacy and math skills — now. This requires teachers who will show up to work in person. Union-backed COVID-19 lockdown policies caused a drastic loss of learning, the largest decline in reading scores since 1990 and the first drop in mathematics scores ever recorded. These test scores are a dire warning sign. … The U.S. could lose $188 billion annually in GDP by 2040, due to lower productivity from lockdown-affected children. But teachers’ unions (under current state policies that grant unions tremendous power) are continuing to lock children into miserable futures.” (09/22/22)
