Ending considerable speculation in media and education circles, Linda Darling-Hammond, the president of the California State Board of Education, says she is committed to staying in California, and is not interested in becoming the next U.S. Secretary of Education.
Darling-Hammond is currently heading up the education transition team for President-elect Joe Biden, according to sources familiar with the process, although she would not confirm that in an interview Sunday, or discuss her role in the transition.
She has been viewed as a top prospect to become education secretary in a Biden cabinet. But, she said, “I want to get that speculation out of the way.”
“I am not interested in that role,” she said. “My commitment to Gov. Newsom and the California agenda that we are pursuing through the State Board of Education are paramount to me.” She said she had told Gov. Gavin Newsom of her intention to stay in California.
