OSHA Reports it ‘Has Suspended’ all ‘Implementation’ and ‘Enforcement’ of Biden’s Vaccine Mandate

On Tuesday, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has suspended the implementation and enforcement of the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for private employers. The decision comes after a federal court blocked the measure.

OSHA’s website page which updates the COVID Vaccine Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) reads: “While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation.”

National Review reports that just last week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit fully blocked Biden’s executive order. The order mandated all companies with over 100 workers implement a vaccine mandate for all their employees.

The court ordered OSHA to “take no steps to implement of enforcing” the vaccine mandate “until further court order.”

On Thursday, November 4, 2021, OSHA’s ETS website published covid-19 vaccination and testing requirements for private employers with 100 or more employees throughout the United States.

On November 6, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in New Orleans, issued a preliminary ruling “staying” implementation of the ETS pending further briefing in the court. November 12, the court entered an opinion which “signaled in the strongest of possible terms that tit was poised to find that the rule does exceed OSHA’s statutory authority in several ways and is unconstitutional” reports National Law Review.

Remote Learning Lowered Test Scores in Every State; Minority Students Hit the Worst

Remote Learning

A paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) shows remote learning has had a negative impact on students’ test scores in every state. Not only were students across the country affected, minority students were impacted the most.

According to the publication, remote learning led to declines in test scores for English and math, when compared to scores of students who went to schools with more in-person learning. “Our research shows that test score losses are significantly larger in districts with less in-person learning,” said Emily Oster, professor of economics at Brown University.

“This suggests, yes, that virtual learning was – and is – less effective than in-person learning, at least as measured by school-based testing” added Oster. “Passing rates in math declined by 14.2 percentage points on average; we estimate this decline was 10.1 percentage points smaller for districts fully in-person,” the study found.

The research combined “district-level schooling mode data from the 2020-21 school year,” “district-level test score data from 2015 to 2021” and “demographic data from the NCES,” according to the study.

Data was collected from students in third to eighth grades in 12 states: Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Rhode Island, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Score declines showed variations by state, as well. Virginia “which had the most complete virtual learning time, along with Colorado, saw an almost 32% drop on math test scores in the 2020-21 school year when compared to the 2018-19 school year” reports Tampa Free Press.

Wyoming, however, “which had the most in-person learning, along with Florida, saw just a 2.3% drop in English, the study found.”

“Changes in English Language Arts (ELA) were smaller than math scores overall, but drops in scores were greater in districts with larger black and Hispanic populations and students eligible for free and reduced lunch prices” reports Tampa Free Press.

“Districts that have a larger share of black and Hispanic students and less in-person schooling also saw a greater decline in ELA test scores than those with more in-person schooling. “
