    Surge Summary: Candidate Joe promised to get American schools open in his first 100 days in office if he won the White House. Now, his administration is changing the terms of what that means. Surprise!

    by Gary Bauer   

    There is a growing revolt around the country led by angry parents whose children have now missed nearly a full year of classroom instruction in our taxpayer-funded public schools.  It’s one of the issues driving the recall effort against California Governor Gavin Newsom.

    And Joe Biden knows it’s a problem for him too.  That’s why he previously pledged to get the schools reopened in his first 100 days in office, and the CDC is expected to issue guidelines for opening the schools.  But Biden’s idea of reopening the schools and your idea of reopening the schools probably aren’t the same thing.

    Let’s be clear about this:  The CDC issued guidelines for opening the schools last year.  Last month the CDC reiterated that it was safe for schools to reopen.

    But [Tuesday] White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki explained Biden’s plan by saying that it meant “teaching at least one day a week in the majority of schools by day 100.”

    A majority of schools?  One day a week?  If that doesn’t sound like reopening the schools to you, that’s because it’s not.  And it may well be a huge step backwards.

    According to CBS News, nearly two-thirds of elementary and middle schools are already offering some form of in-school instruction.
