Calls For Cathie Black Public Hearings - Good Day, New York - Fox 5

Read original...

Bill de Blasio, the New York City public advocate, is calling for public hearings on Cathie Black- Mayor Michael Bloomberg's choice to head the city's public school system.

A growing chorus of opponents say Black's lack of experience in the education field is reason enough to make her unqualified to become the next schools chancellor.

Public Advocate de Blasio told Good Day New York on Thursday that he'd like Black to answer questions from teachers, parents and others about her qualifications in a public forum.

Public Advocate de Blasio and Deborah Kenny, founder of Harlem Village Academies where Black serves on the advisory council, spoke about the Black appointment."
