Biden optimistic on reopening of elementary schools

MILWAUKEE (AP) — President Joe Biden predicts that most elementary schools will be open five days a week by the end of his first 100 days in office, but says it will be tougher for high schools to reopen at the same rate because of the risk of infection.

The comments, made during his CNN town hall in Milwaukee, mark his clearest statement yet on school re-openings.

While Biden has made it a goal to reopen America’s schools, he’s faced growing questions about how he would define that, with school districts operating under a patchwork of different virtual and in-person learning arrangements nationwide.
