DeLauro Looks Ahead to Strong Partnership with Miguel Cardona, President-elect Biden's Nominee for Education Secretary
NEW HAVEN, CT – Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-03), Chair-designate of the House Appropriations Committee and Chair of the subcommittee that determines federal funding for education issued the following statement on Miguel Cardona’s nomination for Education Secretary:
“Connecticut native, former public school teacher, and a proven champion for students, Miguel Cardona will be a strong partner as we work to recover from both the pandemic and the past four years under an administration that undermined public education and critical protections for students. I have seen firsthand Miguel Cardona’s ability to bridge divides, a skill that will be critical in the coming months.
“As chair of the subcommittee that determines U.S. spending on education, I am thrilled to have an ally in this fight for families that hails from Connecticut. I look forward to getting to work to accomplish our shared desire to increase school funding and provide for students at all levels.”
