Cindy Marten, San Diego Unified School District superintendent and President Biden’s choice for deputy secretary of the Department of Education, spoke before the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee last week during a hearing on her nomination.
In her opening statement, she said: “The pandemic did not create the inequities in our education system, but it has highlighted just how much work remains to be done…If confirmed, I would work to deliver on the hope and promise of public education in America. I would work to create the conditions in every single classroom where all children grow and learn to become actively literate, contributing, participating members of society.”
Marten would work alongside recently confirmed Secretary of Education Dr. Miguel Cardona. Her vast classroom, administrative, and personal experience would make her an asset to the department.
Email your senators and tell them to support Cindy Marten for Deputy Secretary of Education.
