Statement by Public Advocate De Blasio on Chancellor Cathie Black Stepping Down

“For too long, the Department of Education has failed to close the achievement gap and to meaningfully engage parents. I have known Dennis Walcott for many years, and he has a history of being open and accessible to the stakeholders in our education system. As a public school parent and as a public servant, I will work with him and challenge him to right these wrongs.”
