Biden Says ‘The Pandemic is Over’ but New York City Just Fired 850 Teachers for Not Being Vaccinated Properly

The New York City Department of Education has fired another 850 teachers and classroom aides for failing to comply with a COVID-19 vaccine mandate, bringing the total to nearly 2,000 school employees fired for failure to comply with a vaccine mandate, according to the New York Post.

President Joe Biden just had an interview with “60 Minutes” after his speech at the Detroit Auto Show and claimed “The pandemic is over.” 

“The pandemic is over, if you notice no one is wearing masks, as you can see everyone seems to be in pretty good shape and so I think it’s changing and I think this is the perfect example of it,” Biden said.

The President of the United States is claiming the pandemic is over, meanwhile thousands of people who support the biggest school system in our country are being purged from their position for “failing to comply with pandemic guidelines.”

“About 1,300 DOE employees who took a year’s unpaid leave —  with benefits — agreed to show proof of COVID vaccination by Sept. 5 or be ‘deemed to have voluntarily resigned.’ Of those staffers, 450 got a shot by the deadline and ‘are returning to their prior schools or work locations,’ DOE officials told The Post. They include some 225 teachers and 135 paraprofessionals,” the New York Post reported.

When the first thousand workers were fired the City Mayor Office released a statement saying, “City workers served on the front lines during the pandemic, and by getting vaccinated, they are, once again, showing how they are willing to do the right thing to protect themselves and all New Yorkers. Our goal was always to vaccinate, not terminate, and city workers stepped up and met the goal placed before them.”

Considering the teacher shortage, some teachers are waiting to see if the district will let up and allow them to return to work regardless of vaccination status.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said it is her job to make sure schools and teachers have the resources they need to succeed. 

“We are working very hard on that as well, and making the licensing easier, I would like to do,” she explained, “and also bring in teachers from other states, and not have to go through such a hassle to become a teacher in New York.”
