Cardona to Testify at Hearing as Foxx Conducts Oversight of the Education Department

Full Committee

On Tuesday, May 16, at 10:15 a.m., the Committee on Education and the Workforce, chaired by Virginia Foxx (R-NC), will hold a full committee hearing titled “Examining the Policies and Priorities of the Department of Education.” Secretary Miguel Cardona will testify at the hearing. 

“The wheels are falling off at the Department. Reckless spending proposals, policymaking by press release, backroom charades, and a radical vision for K-12 and postsecondary education have become the norm inside the Department,” said Chairwoman Foxx. “To enact these leftist policies, President Biden’s FY 2024 budget would increase the Department’s discretionary funding by nearly $11 billion. This doesn’t even account for the hundreds of billions in mandatory spending flowing out of the Department. Before the Department gets another cent of taxpayer money, Secretary Cardona must answer for his agency’s harmful policies that have repeatedly failed students.”
