Yesterday, Acting Secretary of Education, Dr. John King, Jr., appeared before the U.S. Senate’s Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee for consideration of his nomination to be the U.S. Secretary of Education. We support Dr. King’s nomination and urge the HELP Committee to timely confirm him. We are at a pivotal time in our education landscape, and federal leadership and guidance will be instrumental in helping states to implement policies and programs to advance equal access to quality educational opportunities.
