HARRISBURG (Jan. 9, 2023) – Rich Askey, president of the Pennsylvania State Education Association, today issued the following statement after Gov.-elect Josh Shapiro nominated Lower Merion superintendent Khalid Mumin to serve as Pennsylvania’s secretary of education.
“Gov.-elect Shapiro has made an outstanding choice for Pennsylvania’s secretary of education,” Askey said. “Khalid Mumin has spent his entire career teaching and serving students. He is an extraordinary leader and a committed educator, and there is no doubt that his talents, experience, and enthusiasm will make him an excellent secretary.
“Just as important, Khalid Mumin has unique experience leading both an urban, financially challenged school district in Reading, and a well-established, suburban school district in Lower Merion. This experience ensures that he understands the challenges that different kinds of school districts and their students face and that he’ll be able to hit the ground running.
“We look forward to working with Dr. Mumin to ensure that every student in every one of Pennsylvania’s public schools gets the best possible education.”
