President-elect Joe Biden has chosen California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. For Education Secretary, Biden has reportedly chosen Miguel Cardona, a former fourth grade teacher, former principal, and current commissioner of Connecticut’s public schools. The formal announcement could come later this week. Cardona joins a growing list of diverse officials seeking to join the new administration. So why Cardona, and where is the new administration on other recent cabinet picks?
