One of the top Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials who was included in emails between the agency and the nation’s second-largest teachers union on schools reopening will step down from her position this summer, POLITICO reports.
Anne Schuchat, the CDC’s principal deputy director, was one of multiple government health officials included in emails between The American Federation of Teachers union, who repeatedly lobbied against in-person schooling, and the agency over the school reopening guidelines which were released earlier this year.
Schuchat says she is leaving the agency to “allow more time for creative passions” after spending the last seven years in her spot as the CDC’s second-in-command. And while the shifting sands and reported clashed with current Director Rochelle Walensky could be a contributing factor, it is still unclear why she chose to resign now.
