Meet Connecticut’s New Education Commissioner

On July 18, Connecticut’s State Board of Education voted to endorse Dr. Miguel Cardona, currently Meriden’s Assistant Superintendent of Schools, as the next Commissioner of the State Department of Education. Dr. Cardona has deep experience as an educator and administrator and has been a prominent figure on local boards and professional associations. Additionally, he led the State Achievement Gap Task Force. He has shown incredible commitment to literacy and to addressing educational disparities, both within his school district and across the state.
