Cardona on classroom learning this fall: ‘I expect it’

Secretary of Education Dr. Miguel A. Cardona spoke about in-person learning, departmental oversight and other topics this week during the 74th annual Education Writers Association national seminar.

“I want all students to have the opportunity to learn in person in the spring, but I expect it in the fall,” Dr. Cardona said May 3. “I need all students to have the opportunity to learn in the schoolhouse.”

He added, “While it’s not the federal government’s role to micromanage education, it is our role to make sure that all children across the country are getting a free and appropriate public education, one where they have the opportunity to succeed in life.”
