The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently became the latest scientific authority to endorse the claim that schools are not a high-risk environment for COVID-19 spread. However, one big interest group still isn’t on board, and it may become a serious problem for Democrats.

“There has been little evidence that schools have contributed meaningfully to increased community transmission,” a report published by three CDC researchers on Jan. 26 reads. Despite that finding, and the numerous prior publications affirming similar conclusions, the biggest teachers’ unions in the United States still don’t want to go back to work in-person.
