The Wheelhouse: Connecticut Education Leader Goes To Washington

Dec 23, 2020

Connecticut’s education commissioner is heading to Washington.  What sort of approach to schooling during the pandemic will Miguel Cardona bring to President-elect Joe Biden’s new administration?  He’s not the only person with ties to the state heading to the capitol.  Officials from Connecticut could have influence over environmental policy. 

Back in the state, would you pay a little more for gasoline, if it resulted in a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions? 

And is it better for elected officials in Connecticut to get COVID-19 vaccinations now to instill confidence in the shots, or to wait until after all the doctors and nurses are vaccinated?
