Luján Votes to Confirm Dr. Miguel Cardona as Education Secretary
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Dr. Miguel Cardona as Secretary of Education:
“The Department of Education’s support for students, families, educators, and schools is crucial for New Mexico’s future. When I met with Dr. Cardona, I shared the importance of closing the achievement gap in New Mexico, bridging the digital divide for students, and providing critical resources to better support our teachers and school staff. With experience as a former school administrator, I know that Dr. Cardona shares these priorities.
“Today, I voted to confirm Dr. Cardona as Education Secretary, and I look forward to working with him to help prepare New Mexico students for college and career.”
