Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, joined Errol to talk about how teachers and schools are coping with the recent coronavirus surge. As the head of a union that represents 1.7 million educators and school staff across the country, she weighed in on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ tenure.
She also discussed what’s next for education under a Biden administration, especially with Dr. Jill Biden as first lady, and addressed rumors that she’s on the short list for the next education secretary. And she reflected on her time working with former New York City Mayors Rudy Giuliani and Mike Bloomberg, while at the helm of the city teachers union.
