Unions have been chastised for prioritizing petty squabbles over pupil education.

TEACHING unions were chastised yesterday for adopting a “computer says no” attitude that is destroying millions of children’s education.

The chair of the cross-party Commons education select committee, MP Rob Halfon, has slammed union leaders, claiming that their support for ever-stronger Covid measures is causing havoc in classrooms.

After hearing reports of school leaders forcing a 10-day isolation period, even after Health Secretary Sajid Javid reduced it to seven days, the Conservative MP for Harlow, Essex, has written exclusively for the Daily Express, expressing his displeasure.

“There are still some quarters who say ‘the computer says no,’ rather than ‘if it isn’t impossible, there must be a way to do it,'” he explained.

Nadhim Zahawi, the Education Secretary, has announced an additional 7,000 ventilators for schools.

Mary Bousted, the National Education Union’s joint general secretary, dismissed the move as “completely inadequate.”

Mr Halfon was supported by Molly Kingsley, the founder of the parental pressure group Usfor Them.

“It’s time for political leaders to stand up to unions that don’t care about children’s interests and restore normalcy to the lives of children in schools,” she said.

One in every six children is now suspected of having a mental health problem, and 1.5 children are unable to communicate at an age-appropriate level.”

“We support the Government’s measures, but would like to see more investment in ventilation, a public information campaign to promote the take-up of lateral flow home testing among eligible pupils, and better financial support for schools and colleges for the costs of supply cover,” Julie McCulloch, director of policy at the Association of School and College Leaders, said.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has a good idea.

“Stay open, stay safe” is his school motto.

“I’m not going to let the hysteria stop children from getting a good education in the future,” he says.

Despite calls from some American teachers’ unions for schools to revert to remote learning, the mayor has stated that schools must remain open.

Disadvantaged students, both in the United States and in this country, are the ones who suffer the most in terms of educational attainment, mental health, and safety.

Some American school buildings, like those in the United Kingdom, are outdated, and not all have proper ventilation.
