Both here and throughout your remarkable career, you’ve brought a visionary approach to an ever-changing educational landscape. I’ve gotten a chance to get to know you these past few years and appreciate all you do and who you are!

To our Nation's Parents and Students:
I write first, as your new Secretary of Education, to acknowledge the extraordinarily challenging year you've endured.
