The president of the Berkley Federation of Teachers is coming under fire for sending his kid to private school while opposing the reopening of public schools.
The story: Matt Meyer, the president of the teacher’s union in California, was caught on video taking his two-year-old daughter to a private preschool. The video was posted online by a group called Guerilla Momz, who accused Meyer of hypocrisy.
“Meet Matt Meyer. White man with dreads and president of the local teachers’ union. He’s been saying it is unsafe for *your kid* to be back at school, all the while dropping his kid off at private school,” the group wrote in a tweet that linked to the YouTube video of Meyers and his child.
The group made sure to blur the daughter’s face in the video. The video also features a short clip of Meyers saying that “children do not keep their masks on.”
