Washington, D.C. – The last year and a half have been extraordinarily challenging for America’s students. As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, the Biden-Harris Administration is committed to helping every school safely open for full-time, in-person instruction; accelerate academic achievement, and build school communities where all students feel they belong.
At the same time, President Biden understands that addressing the immediate impact of the pandemic is not enough.
Washington, D.C. – Across America, a strong economic recovery is taking hold. Since President Biden took office, more than 3 million jobs have been created—600,000 a month on average. The American Rescue Plan is working, jumpstarting the economy and getting Americans back to work.
And critically, over two-thirds of adults are vaccinated, with our most vulnerable populations protected at even higher rates. In every state, jobs are up and American workers and families are looking ahead to a brighter future.

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Thank you. Well, for you — anybody under the age of 13 — this has got to be boring, boring, boring for you. (Laughter.) Right?

Washington, D.C. – ATTORNEY GENERAL MERRICK GARLAND: Good afternoon, Mr. President. It’s good to be here with you, and with local elected and community leaders, and with representatives of law enforcement.
Protecting our communities from violent crime is a top priority for the U.S. Department of Justice and one of our most important responsibilities.

That means we have now created over 2 million jobs in total since I took office — more jobs than have ever been created in the first four months of any presidency in modern history, triple the rate of my predecessor, eight times the rate of President Reagan.

Quite frankly, we are moving more rapidly than I thought we would. This morning, we learned that our economy created 266,000 jobs in April. It hadn’t been adjusted again yet, but that’s what it says: 266.
