Brown Applauds Nomination of Deb Delisle to Serve as Assistant Secretary of Education

Former Superintendent Nominated to be Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today applauded the nomination of former Ohio schools superintendent Deb Delisle to serve as the Assistant Secretary of Education for Elementary and Secondary Education.

“Deb is a remarkable public servant who will be a tremendous asset to Secretary Arne Duncan and his team at the Department of Education,” Brown said. “First as superintendent at the Cleveland Heights-University Heights school district and then as Ohio’s State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Deb has demonstrated a deep commitment to Ohio’s students, families, and teachers. Deb will join the ranks of the many Ohioans, including Rich Cordray and Jay Williams, who serve in the Administration with distinction.”
