Dr. Anthony Fauci, former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has admitted that keeping schools closed for as long as they were during the pandemic was a mistake. Fauci stated in a recent interview that the prolonged closures led to significant learning loss, particularly among minority and lower-income students. He also noted that the power of teachers unions played a significant role in the decision to keep schools closed. The Los Angeles Unified school district, under the influence of the United Teachers Los Angeles union, was particularly affected by the closures. Union leaders, however, have shown little remorse, with UTLA leader Cecily Myart-Cruz claiming that students did not lose anything and instead learned resilience and critical-thinking skills. The impact of the pandemic on education should serve as a lesson for the future, but the influence of unions in California continues to be a concern.
