Former PA Education Secretary Tapped For Biden Transition Team

The review teams are comprised of experts who will help to ensure a smooth transition of power to the Biden Administration, according to officials.

Gov. Tom Wolf commended Rivera, who resigned to become president of Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in October.

“Pedro Rivera was an excellent secretary of education for Pennsylvania and he is a tremendous choice by President-elect Biden to help prepare the education efforts of the next administration,” said Gov. Wolf. “Pedro’s leadership was critical to rebuilding strong relationships to local school communities and improving the quality of education in our state.”

Rivera served as the Pennsylvania secretary of education since Gov. Wolf took office in 2015. He was previously the superintendent of the School District of Lancaster.
