President-elect Joe Biden announces nominee for Secretary of Education | USA TODAY 1


President-elect Joe Biden said Tuesday he plans to nominate Miguel Cardona, the education commissioner of Connecticut, as secretary of the Department of Education, choosing a major proponent of reopening schools during the coronavirus pandemic.

If confirmed by the Senate, Cardona, 45, would lead Biden's push to reopen the majority of public schools in the first 100 days of his administration. Biden's pick would add another Latino to his increasingly diverse Cabinet.


The selection marks a rapid rise for Cardona, who has served as Connecticut's education chief for 16 months after working as a public school educator for two decades in Meriden, Connecticut, which has a school system of just 7,459 students.

    We need prayer back in schools our kids need to know that jesus died for our sins and jesus is the way to heaven. It’s important to know the love of God. The devil is real and he wants our children

      @2bRealist maybe it’s people like you that are the problem as you sit on your holier than thou high horse and pronounce judgment on children…I’m sure your religion taught you that 🙏🏾…

      The way to having prayer in school is to be good parents that teach their little children to pray. We have separation of church and state so every child can pray as their religion teaches them. I prayed all the time while I was in school. The kind of regimented public prayer that people think is so wonderful is actually kind of frowned upon in my reading of the Bible.

    • @shareef whitaker No… as I believe that you do not need religion to be a good person… but it sure helps 😉

      For the record, my judgment is not on the children, it’s on their upbringing.

      Christians, for the most part, raise their children well if they follow the Christian teachings. Not all Christians do, and not all Christian children are “well behaved”… but the majority do, and the majority are well behaved.

      Now you have non-Christians, well, this is a wide range of people, and some have some kind of structural religion or family tradition that plays the same roll… and then, you have those with no moral guidance at all. Most are from poor and struggling families, but some are from more influent families, with low or twisted morals.

      Anyway… I have ranted long enough, but as you can see.
      You are wrong.
      Cheers =]

      @2bRealist what am i wrong about?…that the constitution clearly states that there is to be a separation between church and state?…that if prayer was allowed in schools time and space should be made for people of all religions and not just Christians?…people of low moral standards come from all walks of life not a majority from the mostly poor…even the people who do profess to be of the church have secret lives that would shock us all if found out i.e. all of those priests from the Catholic church that are pedophiles and those that protect them are of such great moral character just because they’re priests I’m really not here to debate that…all I’m saying is that religion has no place in the public school system because not all students practice the same beliefs…in a country of “FREEDOM” no one’s religious or political beliefs should be imposed on anyone else yet every one of and on their own accord can practice whatever religion or subscribe to whatever political ideology they choose…happy holidays and take care🙏🏾…

  4. “President-elect.” Hahahahahaha! You’re going to GITMO, Joe!

  5. I like that at least Madam VP Harris mentioned the mental health toll undertaken from this whole year. I hope to see Dr. Cardona come up with some kind of a plan to address this area of health as soon as possible.

  6. DeVos has been a disaster for public education. Can’t be rid of her soon enough.

  18. Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2: 8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8: 1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
