Texas teachers union advises members on ways they can avoid going back to class; reaction from Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick joined "The Ingraham Angle" Wednesday to respond to the Texas chapter of the American Federation of Teachers advising members on ways they can avoid going back to classrooms should in-person learning resume this fall.

"They're essential workers, Laura, and most teachers I know, they want to be comfortable when they go back," Patrick told host Laura Ingraham. "They want to feel like they're safe. And schools and our guidelines will provide the safe environment. But most teachers I know want to go back to work.

"Most parents want their kids to go back to the classroom and there'll be some options ... [like] online learning, where it's necessary. But we need to get all of our teachers and all of our students into the classroom. You know, Laura, we really have no choice in this in America."
