DENY WAIVER TO CATHLEEN P. BLACK!
A PETITION TO
November 17, 2010 David M. Steiner Commissioner New York State Education Department 89 Washington Avenue Albany, New York 12234 Dear Commissioner David M. Steiner, Last week, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced his appointment of Cathie Black to replace Joel Klein as Chancellor of New York City Schools. Ms. Black, currently executive vice president of Hearst Magazines, lacks the required educational and professional qualiﬁcations for the position of Schools Chancellor as determined by state law. As a result, she will require a waiver from your ofﬁce in order to accept the appointment. The children, parents, and educational community of New York City deserve a leader with experience in education. Ms. Black's corporate experience may well qualify her for executive positions in business, but the education of our children and the training of our teachers is not corporate business. We urge you, as an educator, to: ~Deny the necessary waiver for Ms. Black's appointment ~Reafﬁrm the qualiﬁcation requirements for NYC Schools Chancellor Sincerely, The Undersigned

As a teacher under chancellor Klein, I have witnessed the atrocities brought forth unto the school system. Please do not allow this trend of unqualified, distant leadership to continue This appointment is an insult to teachers and our children. SAVE OUR SCHOOLS!!! Is this appointment fair to the interests of children in the Public system, to their parents. They are defenseless. We need an experience educator to save these schools Ms. Black lacks any realistic qualifications! Educators should be the ones who make large decisions for our classrooms, not business excutives.

Disgusted; get a real educator, and for God's sake, one whose own kids don't go to a private school...clueless. I know, as an educator, you will do what is in the best interest of our children and teachers. We need a highly qualified instructional leader...one that has committed his or her life's work to educating children! LET AN EXPERIENCED EDUCATOR LEAD THE NYC SCHOOL SYSTEM

Mayor Bloomberg's naming of another non-educator to the position of Chancellor is an insult. Please do not allow him to continue playing Russian Roulette with our children's education. An appointment of this stature needs to be handled by a vetting committee of education administration professionals. Commissioner, we have met. I know you to be a serious person. Your integrity is already in doubt for your position on C4E money. To consent to this would undermine your integrity as a public servant. Ms Clark may be gracious and kind but she is not an educatior.

We deserve an educator. PTA President/ Title 1 Co-Chair of P.S. 21, Bronx, NY ---I would rather have the Board of Education put more emphasis on improving public schools, rather than approving more charters.... what ever happened to equal opportunity for our students? How that this be served by an admissions process for charters predicated on pure chance??? I am a fifth-year NYC teacher with great hopes for public education and deep concern that a non-educator will struggle to properly lead our schools.

No Waiver for Cathie Black - Make King Bloomberg Select a Professional Educator to Run the Largest Public Education System in the Country... Ms. Black is shockingly unqualified. Mayor Bloomberg once again shows his contempt for the little people who send their children to public schools by picking yet another rank amateur to run them. But then again, in his world children attend private school. A Chancellor of Education needs a background in education. The NYS requirement is there for a reason. No waiver.

The chancellorship position directly affects over a million NYC children and their families. Filling this position should include public input, not simply tapping the shoulder of a fellow millionare(ss). If the NYPD requires a former policemen to head it, and the NYFD requires a former fireman, how can the NYCDOE not require a former educator? Page 8 of 301

Why should the schools accept someone who is neither an education expert nor a business expert: Ms. Black is no longer in the publishing business because she does not understand the challenges it will face in the 21st century. Why should we think she'll be able to understand the challenges of 21st century urban education? until all people in charge of public school are required to send their children to one nothing will change for the better It is time to stop giving new york city unqualified educators, no waiver for Black. How can someone with no school experience run the NYC schools? It's insane. Our children deserve much better! pediatric occupational therapist this is wrong on so many levels, I don't even know where to start

Please reaffirm the belief that one has to have prior appropriate experience and education before heading the most important position in the NYC schools.

Has she ever had children in the public school system. The system is broken and it needs someone qualified and knowledgeable to manage it!
We need someone with education experience! Teachers have to be SUPER QUALIFIED. Why not commissioners? What a great disservice you'll be doing to the students, parents, and teachers of the NYC system. As a school counseling intern and former NYC public school teacher, I am greatly disappointed in Ms. Black's appointment as Chancellor.

There is now a COO in place, which obviates any of the arguments re the need for "managerial" expertise. We desperately need an educator back to run our schools, for many reasons but one is the decimation of the special education system under Chancellor Klein. Experience is required; not optional

would it make any sense to put an educator in charge of a magazine publishing company?? This is outrageous. This is a clear sign that our administration clearly supports Charter Schools over Public Schools. There is a difference between working for Americans and seeing Americans as your employees. Corporate policy experience does not translate into good public policy. Education needs to be administered as a service, not a business. When you run education on a business model, children suffer, especially kids with special needs.

If our students need to be quilified to meet basic requirments to graduate from our school, the person in charge of these schools must meet the basic quailifications set forth in the job discription for this position.

There are dozens of qualified candidates who would be able to role up their sleeves and get straight to work. Running education like a business (not very well, I might add), has been a disaster. Only someone who has spent time (a good deal of time) at the different levels of schooling (teacher, dean, administrator, ect) should be considered for this position. The politicians have made a mockery of my profession and the students I teach. The industrial -- authoritarian -- model of education is defunct. With human beings, one size does NOT fit all.

Your last chancellor came to visit my school. One of his aides took a call and needed to write down a phone number. Having no paper, she looked around for one, and finally tore a child's work off the wall and scribbled on it. The moment captured a non-educator's approach to children and learning. It is unconscionable that the Mayor would again appoint a Chancellor with no education experience! In addition, Ms. Black attended parochial school, and sent her own children to private boarding schools - she obviously not only lacks knowledge of, but has no confidence in, the public school system. The children of NYC deserve a chancellor with educational experience or, really, SOME familiarity with the NYC public school system. Education is a profession, and we deserve a true education professional to lead us. Thank you.

Locicero Terry Feuer Satinder Jawanda Julie Underwood Andromahi Eliodromytis As a teacher in the system, I believe our students, parents, and educators should be afforded a chancellor who has a thorough understanding of education. This position is too important. New York City schools need a leader with educational experience! The public school system definitely needs to be reformed, but the new chancellor should be someone from within the public school's system. Let us have a transparent process that chooses the best educator for the position

Nothing personal, but its a big job and someone who has experience with education should take over. I'm concerned that a private sector titan moving to a public sector job will sell out the education in this state.

Its time New York City takes education seriously! I am sure Ms. Black is qualified in her area of expertise but it doesn't seem that education is part of that area. We need to really think about what is best for our children and re-think what our leaders bring to the table. Education is NOT a busines but a right. But reducing our educational system to a business is denying our children their right to an education.

Please deny this request. NYC Public school needs a qualified Chancellor. Would you let someone who was never a doctor be a hospital chief of staff? Why should someone with zero public education experience be in charge of the largest school system in the country??? Our education system should not be run like a business. There is too much at stake and no one to "bail out" our children when a market approach to education fails. teachers know teaching business people are supposed to know business (that's debatable) schools are not businesses

Business is not about Education We need not only a more experienced Chancellor, we need a better mayor! All the "successes" of Joel Klein have been revealed to be simple cooking of the books. Typical MBA mentality, just ask the Mayor. The requirements are there for a reason and should not be blithely dismissed again. After correcting the test scores, our children are doing WORSE than before. NO WAIVER. It's Not Fair!

We have had 8 years of a non educator in this position and it is time for a person who is invested in public education and teachers to be in this position.

A Concerned Public School Parent Bloomberg Inc's choice for Schools Chancellor is proof of what I've believed all along: it's business/private sector first, needs of the city and its inhabitants a distant second. That's what you get when you hire CEO's to lead Gregory Burrows everything from city gov't to hospitals to ... schools! Novelette Foote Jessica it is ridiculous for such an unqualified person to have Christine Dixon been offered this position Eugenia Mayfield Laura Norwitz Marc Sperber Pauline Healy This woman was raised in private schools, sends her children to private boarding schools; sounds like she has contempt for public schools and now she's going to be in charge of one of the biggest systems in the country?

Stop changing the system so much that is why are children are more confused than Bonnie Bonfiglio ever. Robert Milnes Kathleen Boyer Cristian Solorza This appointment must not go through. To sanction it would convey the message that the NYS Education Department is colluding with private sector interests to Richard Perez advance the charter school agenda.

You trust teachers to teach our children but not to make the right decisions for ALL of our children! This is a slap to those who have spent years in education. This is a disgrace! The chancellor should be an educator, First a teacher, then an A.P., then a Principal, then a superintendant and then be able to achieve the title of Chancellor
We need an educator, not a business person, our children are not numbers.
HIRE SOMEONE WITH NYC PUBLIC SCHOOL EXPERIENCE! I agree! Ms. Black is not suited to lead the Education System. We need people who know and are in education to help all students, teachers, and staff alike to find permanent success in the school system and beyond.

Mr. Bloomberg would NEVER hire a teacher or sanitation worker to run the finances of the city. So, why would he hire a business man to run the schools? Why not hire someone who understands the problems now facing young people in terms of education to be Chancellor and hire a businessperson to deal with the financial aspects??? I taught in an elite private school in NYC and we teachers always had a chance to give our opinion as to a new headmaster. Have the teachers in the NYC Public Schools had a chance to give their opinions as to various candidates? The lack of transparency throughout this process (what was the process?) and the complete disregard for the opinions of teachers, students, and families is unacceptable.

Let's stop the double standard! How does someone get a top position without any experience in the field? Mayor Bloomberg should have the foresight to know there is already division and chaos in the public school system. He is knowingly adding fuel to the fire. Someone needs to give him better guidance on this decison. This should not be allowed. Having a non-educator run our schools has already been shown to be ineffective.

Our children are not computers. Enough of that, already! There are many qualified candidates who know the education system. As a woman in publishing she would never have asked someone to head a publishing company who never had worked with books before Page 86 of 301

educational requirements-- just like for me Unacceptable Candidate We expect students will meet standards; let's expect the chancellor to meet his/her professional qualification standard, too. Deny the Waiver. This is one more slap in the face to New York City's students, teachers, other employees of the DOE, and the parents. With so many qualified educators within our universities, the DOE, & U.S., there must be someone who is better qualified than Ms. Black to prepare our children “for the 21st Century.” Mayor Blumberg once again shows he is nothing more than an incompetent, arrogant, hypocrite who bought his way into elective office.

Cathie Black has no background to understand the culture and structure of the organizations she will be dealing with, and the fact that she thinks she can do it anyway underlines that lack of understanding. #NAME? parent and teacher in NYC they have lied, deceived parents & students contually. They are giving high school students something called an IEP which is not a high school diploma & is worthless. The only worthwhile diploma is one where the students take their regents exams - then the hs school diploma is valid. Otherwise, the IEP students need to take a GED to get a valid diploma. Its disgusting GET HER OUT OF THERE!!!!!! Our next Chancellor should be an educator, simple as that.

Do justice and hire someone qualified to look after our future leaders! I think the City deserves better I believe we deserve a chancellor who does not need to take some time to "get up to speed" on issues in K- 12 education. We need someone who actually knows the NYC public school system. Not someone who needs to read about it
Enough with the amateurs already. It is unimaginable that a person with no background in education would be considered for this most vital position. We saw what happened under Joel Klein. Are we looking for more of the same??

Our children are the USA's future. Stop the insanity! Our children deserve someone at the school helm who understands the developmental and intellectual needs of children. Parents should have a real voice, a significant place at the table -when these decisions are made. Is this a joke? Should we also hire a teacher to run a publishing company?

Mayor Bloomberg is mistaken. It's not about "jobs," it's about education. This woman should not be "learning all there is to know about K-12 education" on the taxpayer's dime.

Would you hire a surgeon to manage a supermarket conglomerate???? This is an outrage, a slap in the face to the parent and children of NYC.Since when is it not important to have educational experience???Klein's reign misled and misrepresented and now that it is out in the open, it's time to move on and bring in someone else who will continue the doublespeak and gobbledygook!!!k She is not an educator

Petition to Deny Waiver I completely agree with this petition. We need a chancellor who has experience in education. Expertise in running corporate business does not qualify a person for running the public schools. We need someone who has expertise in public education as well as an understanding of the importance of prioritizing the social above concerns for profit.

The increasing evidence that many of Mr. Klein's initiatives have been far less successful than he and Mayor Bloomberg claim is additional evidence of the importance of having an educator at the helm. It is critical to have a Chancellor who knows and understands how young people learn. Now more than ever we need an astute educator to lead New York City's Department of Education, rather than a political appointee from the world of business management. Teaching and learning is not a business. poor choice for children and teachers Page 111 of 301

Petition to Deny Waiver As a NYC educator for the past 18 years, I know education should NOT be data driven like a corporation. Why did I have to take psych., soc., & edu. instead of business courses? I invite Cathie Black to teach my 7th & 8th grade Language Arts (English) classes for one week and then decide what students, teachers and schools REALLY need! I agree...the education chancellor should be an educator. I'm appalled with the idea that a person who has no experience in education can be hired for such an important decision making position. As a doctoral student at Teachers College in the Curriculum and Teaching department, I implore you to consider the implications this decision has on the students.

Knowledge of education matters for someone to run an education system. The current system of constant test prep doesn't work, and is creating a system where our students know nothing. How about hiring an education and doing some real education in our schools? Schools should be run by people who understand them from the inside out--not the outside in.

It just shows how mayoral control is a move towards the end of public education and into privitized, for porfit education. No more test prep factories! She is not qualified. She will not last past June 2011.

Please deny the waiver! If Bloomberg felt Ms. Black was a well-qualified candidate, then why was her hiring process and appointment so untransparent and clouded in secrecy? The future of NYC deserves a chancellor who is fully qualified with both an education background experience (at the least) and a proven record in good leadership to sit in this very important position. The standards for who can get a waiver as set by state law are high, and deliberately very similar to the regular, non-waiver standards. Please honor those standards! If the decisions that Mr Klein made worked why didn't he stay to enjoy the glory, instead of leaving two months into the school year. We don't just need someone to manage the schools' budget but, one who has the experience to make educational decisions that will improve learning especially, in the urban schools.

We need qualified EDUCATORS not businessmen and magazine administrators to run the public school system! She lacks the educational background necessary to relate to the teachers in the trenches. Most teachers would rather have someone as Chancellor who can relate to their concerns. Ms. Black is not this person. An education system should be run by an educator.

Students are not products. Bloomberg's disregard for educational expertise is only about money worship. Sad where our country is at- everything is about the richest elite who control the masses. The Mayor's comments and actions around the selection of another candidate with "business" smarts once again show his lack of respect and regard for those who have spent their lives developing educational expertise in teaching and student learning.

Once again, the mayor has chosen someone with no educational experience, except for sitting on the board of a charter school with teacher attrition rates of 42 -71\%, and a student suspension rate of 62\%. Black should not be confirmed. Tell the mayor to listen to the parents! Would you hire someone who was never a police officer to be the commisioner?
This is just absurd

She is thoroughly UNqualified. I don't believe that anyone assuming the position of chancellor of the New York City Department of Education should ever require a "waiver" and all that it implies. NYC Education is not for sale. After listening to Ms. Black's advice about the “sex tip of the day“, where she considers these phone calls “cheaper than a hooker” . I would say that Mr. Bloomberg found the right MADAME for his business. Please, Mr. Bloomberg, you must have other type of business where to send your Madams. Education is not meant to be a business, and the students and teachers don't need to be managed. We all need to expand our horizons. this is an outrage Why would you put someone who knows nothing about the education system in charge of said eductaion system. Makes absolutely no sense. Let's try to find someone who has a background that will be useful.

This is just another example of how NYC does not value its greatest assets-the children of NYC. To hire a totally unqualified person to head the department shows lack of careful analysis and vision. How despicable and criminal, as usual... Typical of Billionaire Bloomberg! Disgraceful! We are about education. We are not a business! Please treat us respectfully. all my children went to the NYC public schools. Keep them places of education. Do not turn them into corporations. Page 170 of 301

Bring education back to educators. Personally, I would like someone with some teaching experience to hold this post. I do not feel that she would have education as the bottom line. Education is NOT first and foremost a business. Let's not overlook our children...again...in the hopes of cost containment.
Ms. Black's children have gone to private school. She has no concrete experience with NYC's public schools.

The appointment of Ms. Black - a leading figure in a failing industry (print media) and a complete outsider to the public school system AND to government - would be a disservice to New York City's school children and a disgrace to the city at large. Dewey was great! and still is! please don't let it close! The last 8 years is enough proof. The DOE needs a leader with education credentials. The teachers, administrators, students and their parents deserve better! Ms. Black's employment history reveals only a commitment to corporate profit and the accumulation of vast wealth, not to redressing those "savage inequalities" which a culture of greed visits upon most N.Y.C. public school students. Mayor Bloomberg has some nerve! Do not grant a waiver.

New York City is long overdue to have actual educators in charge of educating our children. Please do not compound the damage already done to our children and educational values by the hackwork of the past eight years by allowing yet another non-educator to futher damage education in New York City. No experience, no MA = unqualified. Let's professionalize teaching and learning by getting an educator to run the education system. If I want the head of my country to know politics, I want my chancellor to know education. If I had a large car plant I would not hire a top chef to run it. Mayor Bloomburg's point about having a pilot run an airline is one thing but one would assume knowledge of the aviatiion industry. His referring to our children as consumers is insulting .

It is simply absurd to appoint a non-educator. Not only do you need a chancellor with business experience but some educational qalifications too. Not another private school junkie! We need a person who is knowledgeable about education, not a business person. There are many educators will good administrative experience who could be tapped for this important position. Choosing a non-eduator is a signal that children, as well as their education, are not City priorities. Who would want a firefighter regulating the medical field, or a doctor regulating the Transportation Security Administration? We need expert doctors managing medicine, expert pilots managing air traffic, and expert educators managing our schools. This is the epitomy of backdoor politics. Our schools cannot be run as a business and our school's top leaders have to at least have a credible resume in education. This is totally unacceptable.

If an unqualified person becomes Chancellor, why must I have been qualified to become a teacher? Surely, I'd like my boss to be more qualified than I, just as my highly qualified Principal is. we must all play by the rules, otherwise it's called cheating. While the Mayor is correct that a more diverse set of ideas are needed in education, he seems to have no respect for those of educators. Isn't it disingenuous to make the claim that outsiders should be heard because more ideas are better, while simultaneously claiming that only those of non-educators are worth listening to?

The "business" of schools is the education of children. This is very different from business. If we don't want unprepared, uncertified teachers in the classrooms why would we appoint an uncertified person (again) to head the education system. A good COO does not necessarily mean you will be a good educator. Our children deserve better. john dewey high school is best! The education of our children should be in the hands of an educator! She should have education experience need a educator Appoint someone with experience in education. Would you hire a plumber to fix your car?

The city deserves a Chancellor that fits the requirements established, WITHOUT having to request a waiver for something as basic as a background in education. Just Say No!

The idea that a top-down manager, rather than an educational leader with a vision, has led to a sense of futility, frustration and low morale among New York City teachers. We need a partner, not a manager. NYS education regulations are there for a reason. Qualifications are necessary for any position. NYC students deserve better !!

The only reason she got the job is because she is apart of Bloomberg's social circle. Let educators run education She is not qualified! No experience in the education field. Comparable to a podiatrist performing heart suregery. We need an actual educator! To make an informed decision on educational matters, an educational background is mandatory. It's a very scary thought to have, that someone with no experience working with children will run our school system. This is ridiculous and makes absolutely no sense. How are parents supposed to feel comfortable and confident with this decision ? Why is she even eligible for this job ? Why does she want this job ? What can we as parents expect from her?

Petition to Deny Waiver Educating our youth IS NOT a business. You cannot use the same tactics and methods to achieve success in a school as you do in a corporation. Perhaps, when it comes to budgeting and financial applications, those ways have proven merit, However, if you want to create wellrounded, knowledgable and productive human beings, you must add heart and love.

She doesn't qualify. Select from within our system. The children of NYC deserve the best education, and this has to start from the top. Ms. Black has a terrific resume for the publishing world, but she clearly has no experience with education let alone the such a large inner city education department. Please do not grant this waiver!

It clearly shows Mr. Bloomberg's intent of just caring about the numbers and not the students of NYC by his appointment of Ms. Black, a business woman with NO education credentials. Please do not allow Mr. Bloomberg to do this to the children of NYC! There has to be a canidate without an agenda to propigate her product.

My child deserves a great education and has not received it since Bloomberg has appointed his flunkies. These changes benefit the mayor not our children. This appointment is preposterous.

Why hire someone with NO education experience and hope she will learn quickly. There are many nuances and levels of education to learn...not at taxpayers expense.

I don't think so. Experience counts! How can a businesswoman without experience in education be the right person to provide our CHILDREN with the education that they deserve? Would she be equally well qualified to run NYPD or FDNY? Was a national search conducted and was she the selected candidate? Based on what criteria? As an educator, its insulting to pick such an unqualified person to head one of the largest school systems in the country. MIke Bloomberg is in a millionaires club and thinks NYC is his dollhouse.

Petition to Deny Waiver Waiving the requirements is a demoralizing vote of no confidence in our educators. The children of New York City are not "consumers," and this hiring further fuels and promotes the ideology of children in public education as "numbers" instead of human beings with real needs and challenges. The largest school system in the country can find a good administrator that has an Education background and all the credentials. Licensing and credentials are there for exactly this case - to prevent a politician from stuffing the position with a friend that is unqualified. Education is a discipline not merely a business.

The NYC public school children deserve more than an unqualified corporate director with absolutely NO educaton experience. She does not have the appropriate certification, degrees and experience to lead our complex educational system in a competitive global economy. schoolchildren are not customers; educating future members of the polity is not a commercial transaction

The laws were written for a reason. The mayor has already shown that he is above the law with his third term. Now, it is on the backs of the students, our children, that he thumbs his nose at the law. No one is above the law. If you don't like the law change it but do not publicly flaunt that you don't have to obey it even if you happen to be Mayor or rich. Government appointments are just too ridiculous to comment upon.
Running a school system is not a business.
Children are not a commodity as as the mayor so thinks My children and husband are also in support of this denial of NYC chancellor waiver petition
Put Children First!!!!
6742 Elizabeth Gonzalo
I oppose Ms Black as chancellor because she does not meet any of the requirements the state requires for this position. I do not feel that my child's education needs will be met with an under qualified chancellor. I feel Mayor Bloomberg has appointed her because she is a friend of his, not because of her expertise. Page 220 of 301
Petition to Deny Waiver I can not believe that we could allow someone who has no experience with education to lead the largest public education system. The system is compromised enough as it is and now we have to deal with under-qualified leaders. There is so an unjust double standard pervading our society.

It is an insult to choose a Chancellor who has zero education experience and didn't respect the public system enough to have her children in it. You would never find a lawyer as the head of the AMA or a doctor in charge of the Bar Association. This is evidence of how little the mayor regards the education profession.

As the current Presidential Awardee for NY in mathematics teaching, I was shocked to see this nomination. When Ms. Black said she didn't know the current issues facing K12 education, I was appalled.

It is just downright wrong to scorn education in nyc by not putting in an educator with credentials. It's time we stopped running the schools like a business. Students are not "clients", they are children. This is too bad to believe Students need someone who has been in the educcational arena. Students are not a product for schools to be run like a corporation. other than being a college graduate, should she have some teaching behind her.

Petition to Deny Waiver Private sector management is NOT a qualification to direct NYC's unique educational system. For years Joel Klein, a lawyer by training, was Chancellor. His efforts were less than effective to overhaul the decaying educational system. Now Mayor Bloomberg is appointing another without credentials, lacking the expertise that our schools require. Ms. Black doesn't have a clue on how to run an educational institution - her own children didn't attend public schools - Our kids need someone with first hand knowledge not someone who works on theory.

Education, like many things, is subtle, complicated, rich, multi-layered; how can a person who's never had any experiences as an educator of youth possibly hope to lead our Dept of Education effectively? Maybe it's more appropriate for her to act as an organizational consultant. Education should give the disenfranchised access. A deep commitment to providing access is necessary and important. Education is NOT a business. The rewards of a good education are not only reaped by the individuals who manage to get educated, but also by the society at large for generations to come.

Probably, there is a reason for qualifications. Waiving them, therefore, negates the need for their existence.

Mother of two public school children Every highly regarded profession reqires on-hand training. Mrs. Black should consider working with children of varied capablities in a classroom setting for a specified amount of time. This should be done without any privileges or considerations. Then she will be the best one to know, in her heart, if this is truly her chosen profession, not the one chosen for her.

PLEASE do not slap us in the face with a waiver for her! The Chancellor should have experience in all levels of Public Education I had to qualify for an SAS certification through course work and testing!
As a tenured professor at a CUNY college I find this appointment to be indefensible. we need an educator at the helm
she is not qualified

Petition to Deny Waiver Mayor Bloomberg's secretive selection of Cathie Black, a corporate executive with zero experience in public education, smacks of the worst kind of elitism and cronyism. Partying with the Mayor does not qualify one for the schools chancellor position. As a parent of a child in a NYC public school, I am appalled. Please reject the waiver! I do not think Cathie Black is qualified for the position of Education Chancellor. Her work has been solely in the business community and her children were sent away to boarding school for their education. What can she know about the educational choices that face parents and children of NYC. Enough is enough! It is time to take back the school system and appoint someone who has an educational background plus experience. We just had 8 years of Klein and when the dust is cleared we will see that his reforms are empty and detrimental to the schools, students, parents, and teachers.

No one would even think of appointing someone with a non medical background or training to head a surgical or other medical team. Our children are precious HUMAN BEINGS, let's stop treating like a business!!! Those of us who send our children to NYC public schools deserve a qualified Chancellor who believes in and knows first hand about public education in our city. We all know Ms. Black is not that person. Please don't pretend she is!

It's time that the leader of the NYC public schools has an interest in the education of future citizens, not merely a bottom line.

Public education has an impact on eveyone! Managers of business who only know the bottom line are engaged with non humans. Educations is for children who are humans and know nothing about the bottom line unless it is to underline the answer. This is so wrong. Let's get real. The mayoral control should take care of the business and financial part of the school system. The Chancellor should be an advocate for the educators and the children. To be Attorney General,.you must be an attorney. To be Surgeon General, you must be an MD. To head the Joint Chiefs of Staff, you must be an admiral or general. Shouldn't one also be an educator to become Chancellor of the Nation's largest school system?.

I Ms. Black's children attend a boarding school: so she is not even involved in their schooling, lesson plans, homework on a daily basis... Really, what is her connection to education, even, as a mother, other than paying the tuition...? Education is not a business! Ms Black is not qualified for the position.. Page 270 of 301

I oppose the appointment of Cathie Black. Actually, Mayor B. is anti public education. Cathie Black has got to go along with mayoral control of New York City Schools. The schools have not improved and the proliferation of charter schools parasitizes the remaining community resources, making public education worse-- not better --for increasing numbers of students. we can do better for our kids Licensed educators should lead, not corporate raiders.

Children are not pork bellies or other stocks and should not be treated as such. This new approach to education is becoming similar to our health care system-non professionals telling the professionals what to do. We all know what came of that approach. this is just wrong, and yet another arrogant decision that is not at all inclusive. This candidate is unqualified for an education position.
Lack experience in education We need a chancellor who knows what it's like to work in a classroom!
NYC schools need someone who has a strong background in education!
8513 Sarah Goodman 8514 Denise Jamison
As a public school educator, I find this decision appalling. It is already affecting the moral of the teachers I work with. We would not place a teacher in a classroom if he/she has not been educated to teach. Why would we name a chancellor who has not experience in education?? Our children are not a business!!

Find an educator who will run the schools as a place for education not as a business This is unacceptable. We have lived with the result of such a decision for the past 8 years and look at what a mess our public school system is today. Numbers and data are not what is needed.

Please Mr Mayor.... schools are not factories
the Chancellor needs to be someone who understands education, this should be mandatory. Our children can't wait while she learns the ropes.
Our children deserve the best! NYC schools must have someone who has walked in the shoes of a NYC teacher
are her children (or yours) in public schools?
I don't believe that she's qualified to be the Chancellor of NYC.
A concerned grandparent of 6 school children too many high priced lawyers and accountants that know nothing about education are employed by his honor. Our children's education is at risk in this sytem already. Putting someone in control who kbows nothing about education will be an enormous blow to the educational future of the 1.2 million children in the public school system. The NY public schools are already in too much turmoil and to place it in the hands of a nitwit it will be fatal Page 290 of 301

I am disappointed that our elected officials do not see the importance of hiring a qualified individual to this pivotal position. The same rigorous standards that allow teachers access to the classroom should apply to the chancellor. GO TO .... http://www.WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.com We don't need a micromanager to run the public schools as a business. Our children are not commodities. We need someone who has worked in the school system as a teacher or administrator who knows the minute details of how the system runs so it can be enhanced. We need a transparent selection process.

Petition to Deny Waiver Public education needs an informed advocate at the helm of the NYC school system: A "business manager" who sends her own children to private schools outside of NY is not an informed advocate. This is absolutely an abuse of the Mayor's power. When it comes to his agenda, he's a bully. He's an elitist who thinks whatever he does is appropriate. Ms. Black is a slap in the face to people who have prepared through education and experience to be appointed to the chancellor's position.

We need a chancellor who is BOTH a great manager AND a superb educator. There is no justification for granting a waiver in this case. Ms. Black has no experience with education whatsoever, and has had almost no contact with public education of any kind. She's barely even been inside a public school building. And her corporate experience is in no way relevant to running a school. The waiver should be denied.

One has to believe that their is at least one individual in our nation who qualifies as an educator and business manager. To be attorney general, one muist be an attorney. To be surgeon general, one must be an MD. To head the joint chiefs, one mst be an admiral or general. But to head the nation's largest school system, managing hearst pubs is enough? No, it's NOT. I agree that Parents should have a say!!! this is so important-please please deny Our children deserve better, and you know it.

Our children deserve better than this. She wants to take care of over a million children but she sent her own children to boarding school. To busy to take care of them. She and her children never attended public school. So how would she know how to run a public school system. (largest in the country)
This is a ridiculous political appointment that has no regard for the reality that faces NYC education needs.
NYC public school parent we need some one with an educational background.. not a bloomberg yes person
why not choose an educator
Absurd and Insulting
running the NYC school system is not like running Cosmo
Don't spit on me and tell me it's raining.

She doesn't understand children. She didn't raise her own how will she serve other people's children. No educational background. It is an outrage and a disgrace that this is the candidate for NYC Chancellor NYC school system is not a business it is an educational environment. All our children need a quality education no matter their race or income status. They are children, students not clients. We need a Chancellor who has a Strong Educational background who can make a sufficient change in NYC schools. I believe some knowledege of the education system is required to run it otherwise come in as a consultant to someone who has the knowledge and work with them. We need someone with an educational background and interest in students and not money. SHE IS NOT AN EDUCATOR HAS NO EXPERIENCE AND EVEN HER OWN CHILDREN WENT TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS .. GIVE NY A BREAK FIND SOMEONE THAT WILL KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. this appointment bespeaks of favoritism to the detriment of our children To say that Ms Black is needed because she is an excellent manager, treats education as a corporate concern, and overlooks the many qualified educational administrators who have clearly not been considered for the position. We need BOTH management skills and deep understanding of educational issues. we need someone with education background
