Despite saying he needed to take a seat with the lecturers union to debate a brief remote studying option amid the Omicron outbreak and low pupil attendance charges, Mayor Eric Adams vowed Friday that the Big Apple’s public schools will stay open.

“Schools are not closing,” Adams informed reporters at an unrelated press convention in Queens. “Let’s be very clear on that.

“I’m just amazed that no one is commending us on what we have accomplished,” he added. “This is not Chicago. We are working with the UFT” — the politically highly effective lecturers union.

The head of the United Federation of Teachers, Michael Mulgrew, has advised in latest days that employees shortages brought on by huge wave of sickness introduced by the hyper-contagious however far much less much less lethal Omicron variant could ultimately drive a return to remote studying.

However, Schools Chancellor David Banks has stated it could take months to get an improved remote studying system again up and operating.
