Group demands open search for a new chancellor at press conference
According to a Facebook message on the Wall of former gubernatorial candidate and NYC Council Member, Charles Barron, "Cathleen Black is out ! Dennis Walcott is in ! We're not looking for personality change; we're looking for policy change. Walcott pledges to continue the Mayor's failing policies; school closings, teacher layoffs, charter school preference, turning schools into test taking mills, etc. We will not be fooled by a Black face ! We say open up the process and conduct a search for a chancellor who doesn't need a waiver. No more Mayoral control and dictatorial appointments. Join community leaders, parents and education activists in a PRESS CONFERENCE on TUESDAY, APRIL 12, 2011 at 12noon on the steps of CITY HALL. The struggle continues !"
