Former Secretary of Education Dr. Bill Bennett said Monday “it is a scandal” for many major public schools in the U.S. to continue to be shut down under President Joe Biden’s administration.
“It’s true now that a lot of kids may not see classrooms until September,” Bennett said during an appearance on “America’s Newsroom.” “This is a catastrophe for these kids, and there’s no beating around the bush on this.”
Bennett asserted that the U.S. could have a “lost generation” of children who will suffer academically, socially, and morally if a plan to return them to the classroom is not created soon.
Biden has called for most schools to reopen within his first 100 days in office.
