Cardona Says He Expects All Schools Will Open This Fall

 

Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said he expects every school in the country to offer families in person learning, full time, five days a week at the start of the next school year and that he stands ready to increase the Education Department's oversight authority for those that do not.

"I want all students to have the opportunity to learn in person in the spring, but I expect it in the fall," he said Monday during the Education Writers Association 74th annual national seminar. "I need all students to have the opportunity to learn in the school house."

His remarks come as concerns begin mounting over whether school districts that have been slow to return all students to classrooms will have the capacity to do so at the start of the next school year – despite as much as $140 billion from the most recent coronavirus relief package flowing to K-12 schools to help them reopen.
