DOVER, DE – Delaware governor Jack Markell has nominated Mark Murphy as Delaware’s next Secretary of Education. Murphy, a former teacher and principal, is currently the Executive Director of the Vision Network.
“Delaware has made remarkable progress, putting forward a detailed agenda and implementing innovative ideas to make sure more students graduate ready to succeed in work or college. If confirmed by the Senate, I look forward to helping move each of these efforts forward,” Murphy said. “The teachers, principals, parents and community leaders that I get to work with each day know how critical it is that we keep making progress, and keep doing so together.”
Lillian Lowery, Delaware’s current Secretary of Education, is leaving the post to become Maryland’s new state superintendent of schools.
