Blumenthal Statement on CT Education Commissioner Miguel Cardona

(HARFORD, CT) – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) issued the follow statement regarding Connecticut Commissioner of Education Miguel Cardona:

“This selection would send an inspiring message to Connecticut’s children, especially all who start school speaking another language: there is no limit to how far you can go as a leader. Miguel Cardona is a son of Meriden’s public schools and state universities, a hands-on teacher and manager, and a leader of vision and courage who can help federal education policy recover from its current catastrophic failures. He has the personal experience, knowledge, and skills necessary to reverse the damage caused in the last four years by this administration’s malign neglect of public education. He would be missed in Connecticut, but his selection would be a tremendous benefit to the entire nation.”
