The work ahead for the U.S. Department of Education “is going to get different,” said Education Secretary Dr. Miguel A. Cardona in a recent interview with K-12 Dive.

“And the challenges now are different than they were three years ago,” he added. “People are frustrated. People are fatigued. There’s more division now. So we’re gonna do what we do best: Bring people together around education.”
