Lauro Cavazos, schooling secretary on the finish of the Reagan administration and the start of George H. W. Bush’s administration, died Tuesday on the age of 95.
He was the primary Hispanic particular person to serve within the cupboard, and from 1980 to 1988 he was president of Texas Tech College.
A serious controversy in greater schooling led to President Bush asking him to resign in December of 1990, The New York Instances reported. The controversy concerned a ruling by the Schooling Division’s Workplace for Civil Rights that it was typically unlawful to have a scholarship program reserved for members of a selected race or ethnicity. The Bush administration reversed the ruling.
