Today, Common Sense Kids Action CEO and Founder Jim Steyer issued the following statement today in response to President Obama's nomination of John King as Education Secretary:
"Common Sense congratulates Acting Secretary John King on being nominated to serve as the next Secretary of Education and we encourage the U.S. Senate to swiftly confirm him. America's children need a champion steering the Department of Education, and they will have one in John King. John believes all children can succeed, and that we are all duty bound to ensure them the opportunity to succeed in school and in life, no matter their background or zip code. We look forward to working with Secretary King and his team across all our platforms – Common Sense Media, Education, and Kids Action -- to make children America's top priority."
