Educators for Excellence Congratulates Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona on Confirmation
Washington D.C. — Evan Stone, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Educators for Excellence, a teacher-led organization that seeks to elevate the voices of teachers in education policy, today congratulated Secretary Miguel Cardona on his confirmation as U.S. Secretary of Education.
“After many years, it is a pleasure to once again congratulate a former educator – Secretary Miguel Cardona – on his confirmation as U.S. Secretary of Education. As a former public school teacher, Secretary Cardona knows how tirelessly teachers across the country have worked to support our children and go above and beyond in what has been one of the most challenging years for students and educators alike,” said Evan Stone Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Educators for Excellence. “Our teachers’ voices and experiences must be centered in any conversation about policies that impact them or our students. It is clear to me that he believes in responding to teachers’ needs as he is committed to increasing surveillance testing for educators and prioritizing them for the vaccine. Secretary Cardona’s experience as a public-school teacher and his demonstrated willingness to work closely with teachers is essential to ensuring that teachers have an advocate when it comes to shaping policy that impacts our classrooms and profession.”
