NEW YORK (AP) — Mayor Michael Bloomberg hasn't convinced New Yorkers that magazine executive Cathie Black is the right person to lead the city's public school system.

A Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll released Tuesday found that 51 percent of New York City voters surveyed said Black does not have the right experience to be chancellor.

Just 26 percent said she does. Twenty-three percent were undecided.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.

Black is the chairwoman of Hearst Magazines. Because she has no educational credentials, she would need a waiver from the state Education Department to serve as chancellor.

An eight-member advisory panel is scheduled to weigh her qualifications at a meeting Tuesday.
