WASHINGTON, DC – President Joe Biden’s Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said parents shouldn’t be the “primary stakeholder” in their kids’ education, during his testimony before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions on 9/30/2021.

Cardona was asked, “Do you think parents should be in charge of their child’s education as the primary stakeholder?”

His reply was not what parents might have expected.

“I believe parents are important stakeholders but I also believe primary educators have a role in determining educational programming.”

“I think that’s going to be a little out of focus what i think you’re going to find across all elements of education since they pay the bills they raise the kids they probably need to be the primary spokespeople for their own kids’ good education,” Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) responded.
