California teachers union boss opposed school reopenings, seen dropping off child at private school
There were "no public options for kids her age," union president Matt Meyer argues in defense of his actions.
A California teachers union president who has opposed reopening public school over COVID health safety concerns was recently seen on video dropping off his daughter at a private preschool.
The video was posted on Twitter by the group GuerillaMomz on Feb. 27. The video shows Matt Meyer, president of the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, dropping off his daughter at the school.
The group writes in the post: "Meet Matt Meyer. A white man with dreads and president of the local teachers' union. He's been saying it is unsafe for *your kid* to be back at school, all the while dropping his kid off at private school."
Meyer said in a statement on Monday to Fox News Channel that there are "no public options for kids her age."
He also argued there's a difference between small private schools and large public schools like the ones whose teachers he represents.
The Berkeley Unified School District reached an agreement with the Berkeley Federation of Teachers on Feb. 16 to reopen schools in March and April, provided that staff members receive COVID-19 vaccinations.
