BIDEN CALLS FOR UNITY BEFORE THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY: President-elect Joe Biden delivers remarks ahead of the Christmas holiday. As he did prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, Biden is expected to discuss the importance of unity within the country and use the end of the year as a time to reflect on the nation’s future, as well as remember the more than 320,000 American families suffering the loss of a loved one from COVID-19.
According to multiple sources, Biden is also expected to nominate Connecticut education commissioner Miguel Cardona as his Education Secretary sometime before Christmas. Before being appointed Connecticut’s first Latinx education commissioner in 2019, Cardona served as a public school teacher, elementary school principal, assistant superintendent, and adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut. If approved by the Senate, Cardona is expected to make significant changes within the Dept. of Education that was previously run by billionaire and private-school enthusiast Betsy DeVos.
