Statement by ACE President Ted Mitchell on the Senate Confirmation Hearing of Secretary of Education-designate Miguel A. Cardona
February 03, 2021

​“We urge the Senate to act swiftly and in a bipartisan manner to confirm Dr. Miguel A. Cardona as U.S. Secretary of Education. During these challenging times for all of education, including colleges and universities and our students, it is vital to fill this post as quickly as possible. And as we have noted previously, Secretary-designate Cardona in his past roles as teacher, principal, and Connecticut education commissioner has demonstrated an unflagging dedication to his students and community and been a committed advocate for increasing educational access, equity, and completion.

We look forward to working with Dr. Cardona and his team at the Department of Education on the many important issues facing students, families, and colleges and universities.”
