More than 8,000 New York City school bus drivers and matrons went on strike over job protection Wednesday morning, leaving some 152,000 students, many disabled, trying to find other ways to get to school.
Amid plummeting approval ratings, former publishing executive Cathie Black resigned Thursday as chancellor of New York City schools, one of the most high-profile posts in American education, after fewer than 100 days on the job.
Chancellor Dennis Walcott announced Wednesday that 58 percent of the more than 5,200 teachers who received decisions this year were granted tenure.
"It was a relatively successful first day," he said, noting some of the school buildings still closed took severe beatings and may take more time to reopen.
