The liberal California Teacher’s Unions are doing everything they can to keep schools closed – but as usual, it’s “rules for thee, not me.”
Matt Meyer, president of the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, has led the union’s fight to keep schools closed, despite the detrimental effect that it’s having on both parents and kids.
That’s why it’s so shocking that Meyer himself is sending his kids to school – a private school that is.
A shocking video showing Meyer taking his daughter to an in-person private pre-school is making the rounds – and parents are furious. Watch:
Dr. Shelene Stine treats COVID-19 patients at Highland Hospital’s department of internal medicine, but she’s also a parent of 3-year-old twins who attend the same preschool as Meyer’s daughter. Dr. Stine also has a 5-year-old attending kindergarten at a Berkeley Unified School District school.
The divide between the quality in-person teaching her twins receive at the preschool — which includes “play-based learning” — compared to the senses-dulling video-screens her 5-year-old looks at for distance learning is a yawning chasm, she said. She has spoken at rallies to reopen public schools and written public letters to the Berkeley Unified School District to push them to reopen safely.
Berkeley teachers have claimed that kids may not honor masking requirements, which Stine says her personal experience contradicts.
“I am a physician. It is definitively the scientific agreement that it is possible to deliver safe in-person education,” Stine said. “It’s infuriating to know Matt Meyer says kids can’t wear masks when kids in his preschool wear them all day long.”
The long list of hypocritical public figures who violate their own lockdown rules continues to grow. Nancy Pelosi, Gavin Newsome, Lori Lightfoot, Matt Meyer and hundreds of others.
One wonders with so much to lose, why do they violate their own rules in the public eye? Lockdowns aren’t sustainable. It’s time to end the madness now. If they can’t even follow their own rules, then why should we be expected to?
