Education Secretary Cardona calls for Congress to act to prevent school shootings

Education Secretary Miguel Cardona called for action to prevent more school shootings on Thursday, at a hearing for the House Education and Labor Committee.

Cardona said actions taken so far are not sufficient, and he is ashamed the country is becoming “desensitized to the murder of children.”

“I’d be failing you as Secretary of Education if I didn’t use this platform to say that students and teachers and school leaders are scared,” Cardona said.
