Biden Says Admin’s One Day Per Week School Plan Was ‘Mistake In Communication’

President Joe Biden says it was a “mistake in communication” when White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that schools would be considered “open” if they held in-person classes one day per week Feb. 9.

Psaki said at the time that the Biden administration’s goal was to have “most” K-8 schools “open” within the first 100 days of Biden’s presidency, but clarified when pressed that schools could hold just one day of in-person classes a week. Psaki later walked the statement back and said five days per week is the goal, and Biden himself rejected the one day per week plan during his CNN town hall in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Tuesday.
