Texas teacher Michael Hull discusses the teachers unions and the need for rank-and-file committees

In this video, Texas history teacher Michael Hull and World Socialist Web Site education editor Evan Blake discuss the situation facing educators, parents and students amid the reckless school reopening campaign. A focus of the interview is to follow up on a significant exchange that recently took place between Hull and American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten, who has largely orchestrated the school reopening campaign on behalf of the Biden administration.
