Randi Weingarten has faced a massive amount of due criticism of her actions over the last 3 years during the pandemic. From draconian restrictions to flat out refusing to have children go to class because it was easier for teachers to sit at home. Now Weingarten is touring the most unlikely of places. Ukraine.
Townhall Reports. American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten, the woman who lobbied the CDC to keep children out of U.S. public schools for more than a year, is spending her time this week in Ukraine.
