In a era where the best prerequisite for running public schools seems to be a minimum amount of experience with them, Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s schools chancellor seems very qualified. Not only, as far as we now, has Cathleen Black never taught in one but she did not attend one, going to parochial schools herself. And she sent her own children to boarding school in Connecticut.
As a business executive, what she does have, Bloomberg, said is experience in dealing with a tough economy. “Jobs, jobs, jobs. Thatís exactly what Cathie Black knows about,” he reportedly said. Bloomberg also called her a “world class manager.”
Black, the first woman chancellor in city history, is believed to be friends with the mayor’s girlfriend, Diana Taylor.By Gail Robinson on November 9, 2010, 6:41 pm
