NJEA president: Union disagrees with governor on keeping schools open

Blistan on keeping schools open: "I'd say, the science and the medicine is not supporting that."

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the governors of several Northeastern states, including Gov. Phil Murphy, say that schools should stay open. That puts Murphy at odds with the state’s largest teachers union, and one of his most trusted supporters, the New Jersey Education Association.

The association’s president Marie Blistan discusses the state of schools in New Jersey with Anchor Michael Hill.
