The selection and appointment of former Deputy Mayor and school district Superintendent Carmen Farina to be the next schools chancellor by Mayor-Elect Bill de Blasio was a very sound and wise choice.
With over 40 years experience in our public school system, Farina is the perfect person for this very important and demanding position. This writer would like to extend to her his very best wishes for much success and happiness in her new position.
This job will be a daunting and herculean task, and Farina will be on the go all the time, but as her excellent work record shows, she is willing to work with teachers, principals, superintendents and parents to ensure that every child receives a good education.
Welcome, Chancellor Farina!
