The First Lady, Cabinet Secretaries and members of the teachers’ union came together to discuss teacher shortages across the country.
President Biden’s administration on Wednesday announced a series of measures to make it easier for states and school districts to find, recruit and hire job-seeking teachers.
Jill Biden spoke about the difficulties teachers face, including “significant student debt”.
President Biden last week forgiven $10,000 in student debt for low- to middle-income borrowers.
Jill Biden urged him not to take such a step, the New York Times reported.
She declined to directly answer a question about how the president’s move would help make college more affordable.
“He said he would get a loan waiver during the campaign. I heard him say it over and over again and he made good on his promise and kept it,” she said Wednesday in response to DailyMail.com’s question to her.
The first lady, who wore a light pink dress, was back to work after her Covid illness. She will resume classes next week when classes start.
Jill Biden, 71, tested negative for Covid on Monday and returned to Washington on Tuesday, nearly a week after suffering a rebound case. She had been self-isolating at the family’s beach house in Rehoboth, Delaware.
She first tested positive on Aug. 15 while she and President Joe Biden were vacationing on Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
The first lady stayed at a private home on the island until she tested negative.

She was then released from isolation on Sunday, August 21, leaving South Carolina and making her way to Delaware to rejoin her husband, who was at their beach house in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
She later tested positive again on August 24 with her rebound case.
President Biden, 79, was believed to be a close contact of his wife but has since tested negative. He had his own case and a rebound case of Covid in July.
Both Bidens are vaccinated and double boosted. Both were also taking the antiviral drug Paxlovid as part of their treatment.
