If you can stand one more story on Chancellor Carmen Farina's retirement, here goes. Some of you are hopeful that the streak of of anti-teacher Chancellors might finally be ending when Farina leaves. Here is a comment from Mayor Bill de Blasio's press conference, where Farina officially announced she was leaving, that should give all cause for concern:
"I'm thrilled with what Carmen's achieved and I want to just deepen what she has started, de Blasio said on Thursday. "Am I looking for something we don't have? No."
Could this mayor possibly be more out of touch with the school system he controls?
It looks like it will be more of the same so I'm not optimistic about the next Chancellor. Are you?
