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.
"There were significant gains [in the D.C. Public School system] in both fourth and eighth grade in reading and math between 2007 and 2009," said Michael Casserly, executive director of the Council of the Great City Schools. "No other city participating in [the comparison of urban districts] could make the same claim over that period."
Michael Casserly, executive director of the Council of the Great City Schools, said that the circumstances leading to Mrs. Black's resignation were specific to her case, and send no messages about whether choosing a newcomer to the education field is always a bad idea.
