New York City Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina to retire

New York City Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina to retire

The head of the nation's largest public school system said she will retire in the coming months. Fariña wrote to her staff, "Four years ago, Mayor de Blasio asked me to unretire at age 70 to join his leadership team and become schools chancellor".

Fariña, who spent her adult life working in the system, knew all the reasons why the schools "couldn't" do better, and regularly lectured on how it's inevitable that any system so huge, facing so many challenges, has its lemons.

Mayor de Blasio says NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill, FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro and Corporation Counsel Zachary Carter will be staying in their roles through the mayor's second term. He said "people felt they were in good hands" with Farina.

The 74-year-old career educator was previously a deputy chancellor, superintendent, principal and teacher and was known for her work in the early 90s as principal of P.S. 6 - where test scores raised dramatically under her watch.

She helped implement the Democratic mayor's signature program: universal prekindergarten.

A national search for her replacement is underway, various news outlets have reported.
