Antisemitic Teachers’ Union Head Rips Jews in Interview on School Reopening

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Tyrannical union boss Randi Weingarten, in concert with the Democrat party of hate, have systematically destroyed NYC public education over the past 20 years.

If teachers union leader Randi Weingarten attacked any other minority group she would have been fired, condemned, and ostracized. She would never work again. However, Weingarten (who is herself Jewish) will likely not be subjected to any disciplinary action for this vicious attack against American Jews. That is because anti-Semitism is now a tolerated bigotry on the Left.

Flying first class, holding our children hostage ….. self-loathing Jew Randi Weingarten’s thrity year command of the teachers union has routed our once great school system, hurting above all the poor, minorities….. The democrat unions rendered the children of the poor  illiterate, ill-equipped for life. Angry.

There’s a reason why the USA, once ranked top in math and science in education, now falls almost dead last among industrialized nations,.

Most troubling to researchers is that 30 countries scored higher than U.S. students in math and that the performance gap between top-performing and lower-performing students is widening, especially in reading…… more

Teachers’ Union Head Rips Jews in Interview on School Reopening

By Free Beacon, April 7, 2021

Union leader Randi Weingarten criticized Jews as “part of the ownership class” dedicated to denying opportunities to others in an interview released on Friday.

Weingarten—who is herself Jewish and draws a six-figure salary as head of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT)—took aim at American Jews in an interview with the Jerusalem Post. When asked about parents critical of the AFT’s resistance to school reopening, Weingarten took aim squarely at Jewish critics.

“American Jews are now part of the ownership class,” Weingarten said. “Jews were immigrants from somewhere else. And they needed the right to have public education. And they needed power to have enough income and wealth for their families that they could put their kids through college and their kids could do better than they have done.”

“What I hear when I hear that question is that those who are in the ownership class now want to take that ladder of opportunity away from those who do not have it,” she said.

Weingarten’s comments come after months of political conflict about whether to reopen school system as vaccinations ramp up and the coronavirus crisis recedes.

A major Jewish advocacy group ripped Weingarten for being “inaccurate and dangerous” in her generalizations about the Jewish community. StandWithUs, a pro-Israel advocacy organization, said the union boss was “out of touch” with the experience of Jewish students and came close to trafficking in anti-Semitism.

“As a non-partisan Israel education organization, StandWithUs takes no position on the debate over when schools should reopen,” Roz Rothstein, cofounder and CEO of StandWithUs, said. “We work with many Jewish students and parents in Los Angeles and are extremely disappointed by Randi Weingarten’s inaccurate and dangerous generalizations about our community.

“Her comments are shockingly out of touch with the actual experiences of countless Jewish families before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, give undue legitimacy to antisemitic stereotypes, and do nothing to help bring people in Los Angeles together during this difficult time.”

The American Federation of Teachers, which did not respond to a request for comment, is the second largest teachers’ union in the country and one of the Democratic Party’s largest financial backers. The 1.5 million-member union spent more than $20 million on the 2020 election, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Parents have overwhelmingly supported the effort to open schools. A February Gallup poll found that nearly 80 percent of parents of all religions have expressed support for in-person instruction for their children.
