Statement by Executive Director Jenny Sedlis on the Selection of Carmen Farina as New York City Schools Chancellor

"Carmen Farina has walked more school hallways than most will in a lifetime. We share Farina's commitment to high quality teaching and teacher training and we hope that the historic reforms that helped make New York City the nation's model are not rolled back. While we have concerns about her aversion to assessment-based measures of accountability and the possibility of a rollback on new schools in the pipeline, we look forward to working with the new chancellor on our shared goal of ensuring that every student in New York City has access to a world-class public education."
