A collective of educators and public health professionals is urging the Biden Administration to establish a task force focused specifically on reopening schools as quickly and as safely as possible. Pandemic Action Network Co-founders Gabrielle Fitzgerald and Carolyn Reynolds have signed on to this open letter. While we applaud the urgency set forth by the Biden Administration already, evidenced by inclusion of school funding in the stimulus proposal as well as the goal of reopening schools in the first 100 days, we believe there needs to be focused interdisciplinary attention to schools at a national level to address the intersection of health, education, and labor issues. We have already lost significant time. Please read and sign on to the letter to ask President Biden to urgently stand up a task force to focus on schools in support of the first 100 days agenda.
