US Education Sec. Miguel Cardona discusses career education in Newport

NEWPORT — Steady rain fell on the grass courts of the International Tennis Hall of Fame on Monday, but it didn’t dampen the spirits of the education and business leaders gathered upstairs.

Representatives from some of Rhode Island’s largest employers mingled with many of the region’s public education leaders at the inaugural Reimagining Education & New England’s Workforce (RENEW) Summit, an initiative that grew out of weekly Zoom meetings early the morning. Rhode Island Education Commissioner Angelica Infante-Green and her New England counterparts have been holding out since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Attendees, including all of the New England State Education Commissioners and representatives from companies like Bank of America, Stanley Black & Decker, CVS and Electric Boat, heard opening remarks d’Infante-Greene and U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona.
