Randi Weingarten: Always thought we could reopen schools with 'safeguards'

04:54

Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers, joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss how teachers and students can return to face to face learning. Weingarten says "I've always thought that if we had the safeguards in place and the testing, that we could reopen schools." She also addresses reports that she's a contender for Education Secretary in the Biden administration, saying "When the education transition team called me, I moved heaven and Earth to meet with them." and she will share "as many of our ideas as the Biden team is willing to listen to."
