Full headline: First Lady Jill Biden visits Meriden to tour elementary school with new U.S. education secretary Miguel Cardona

By JESSIKA HARKAY

First Lady Jill Biden visited Meriden Wednesday, the hometown of new U.S. Education Secretary Miguel Cardona. The two received a warm welcome from the city before touring Benjamin Franklin Elementary School.

“It’s been a love fest here in Connecticut,” Biden said. “Now our nation is going to have that love for you Miguel. You were sworn in just yesterday but I think an educators favorite three words aren’t ‘I love you,’ but ‘Education Secretary Cardona’.”

The trip by Biden and Cardona came within 24 hours of his swearing-in and less than two days after he was confirmed in the Senate. The visit to the elementary school was a trip back home for Cardona, who worked as a fourth-grade teacher in his hometown before becoming the state’s youngest principal at age 27. Cardona went on to become an administrator in the district, then the state education commissioner.

“It feels great to be home,” Cardona said. “I’m so proud to see the Meriden Public School seal here. I’m so proud to be from Meriden. I’m so proud to show the public education here.”

Miguel Cardona was born in and lived in Meriden CT. He started as a teacher. This has to be a great example for these children.

2. I Love Her Spotlight on Public Education!

Love her spotlight on public education. Public Education has suffered from war from the right wing for decades. There is a long campaign to defund and disparage it. First Lady Biden is pushing back!
