Now that he’s been elected the next mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio must have a plan to build upon improvements made under the Bloomberg administration, particularly in education.
In an op-ed, the New York Daily News notes the importance of de Blasio’s choice for a new schools chancellor. The Daily News calls for de Blasio to select a chancellor who will continue to raise standards for NYC students:
“… he must select a schools chief who is committed to meeting the standards of the new Common Core curriculum, who will hold teachers and principals accountable for improving achievement and who can win over parents on the need for standardized testing. Fuzzy-wuzzy will not do.
