This is from Gothamist:
Less than a month after leaving the nation’s largest school district, former New York City Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza has a new job at a Silicon Valley e-learning platform. According to a company press release, Carranza will be the Chief of Strategy and Global Development at IXL Learning in San Mateo, California.
Carranza left his job at the helm of the city’s public schools system in March, saying he needed to take time to grieve the loss of 11 loved ones and close friends to the coronavirus. His abrupt departure came during the school system’s fraught process of reopening amidst the pandemic.
I don't blame Carranza for taking a new position when it was available. What a shock that he was not being totally honest when he resigned as Chancellor, or perhaps the new job offer helped him get over his grief.
This guy has one skill for sure: he knows how to land jobs.
