5th District Congresswoman Jahana Hayes is touting final confirmation of Miguel Cardona as the 12th Secretary of Education.  The former Teacher of the Year says she's incredibly grateful to see this Department led by an educator who will focus on students.  A native of Connecticut’s 5th District, who grew up in public housing as an English language learner before spending two decades working in a public-school system, Hayes says Cardona is the right person, at the right time for this job.  She says it's imperative  the disparities that have been further exacerbated by this pandemic be re-examined.
