Just shy of 100 days in office, Cathie Black is out as NYC’s Chancellor of Education. Not much more needs to be said here; her “tumultuous and brief tenure” as Chancellor of Education was marked more by gaffes, missteps, and declining support than any real accomplishments. Deputy Mayor Dennis M. Walcott steps into place in the interim. Let’s hope the man steps up to the plate and delivers some results in eradicating PCBs from our schools, among other issues near and dear our collective hearts.
