Will Chancellor Richard Carranza Clean House At Tweed?
Chancellor Richard Carranza was appointed in April and will be in office for five months. Time enough to get a feel of the New York City school system and more importantly, the abilities of the top administrators at Tweed. Hopefully, the new Chancellor will "clean house" and erase the Bloomberg ideology that permeates the DOE. Something that Carmen Farina failed to do as Chancellor.
In the Newark schools the new Superintendent decided to "clean house" by removing 31 top administrators so that he could change the ideology of the Board of Education which was run by the State and by Joel Klein proteges, Cami Anderson and Christopher Cert. Many of the top administrators under the previous administration were "outsiders" who were sympathetic to education reform. You can read it Here.
Let's hope that Chancellor Richard Carranza follows the example of the Newark Superintendent, Roger Leon and not Carmen Farina who failed to "clean house" and allowed the anti-teacher Bloomberg ideology to continue under her tenure.
