This is the double destruction of the pandemic and of the teachers unions” Written by Media Matters Staff Published 01/05/22 5:45 PM EST Video file Citation From the January 5, 2022, edition of Fox News' The Five GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): You have to look at this from the positive perspective. This is absolutely great news. This is the double destruction of the pandemic and of the teachers unions happening at exactly the same time, right? We now know that the pandemic is over. The teachers unions pushed us over the cliff. It's going to happen February 1st -- this is all going to be behind us. And it's time now to sever the ties with the least competitive entity on the planet since the Washington Generals. Our education -- educational system is just like the Washington Generals in that we pay them to lose. The only thing worse is that they're teaching our children to lose. They're going to lose in life because they're falling behind. We've learned one really important thing from remote learning -- no one is remotely learning.
