Education Committee Co-Chair Doug McCrory Congratulates Commissioner Cardona on Nomination to Serve as U.S. Secretary of Education


State Senator Doug McCrory (D-Hartford), co-chair of the Education Committee and an educator for over 20 years, released the following statement on President-elect Joe Biden’s decision to nominate Connecticut Commissioner of Education Miguel Cardona to serve as the United States Secretary of Education.

“I want to congratulate Commissioner Cardona on his nomination by President-elect Biden to lead the U.S. Department of Education,” said Sen. McCrory. “It has been a pleasure to work with him on growing educational opportunities for all of our state’s students and, recently, celebrating the approval of Connecticut’s Black and Latino studies course curriculum. As a former elementary school teacher and school principal, he understands both the short and long-term needs of teachers, school staff and students. This understanding is evident throughout his tenure as commissioner, especially during the last several months in responding to effects of the pandemic on our students and education system overall.”
