AP Sources: Ex-teacher Farina to Lead NYC Schools

Monday, 30 Dec 2013 09:55 AM

 

Two people briefed on the decision say a former teacher and principal is being appointed the next leader of New York City schools.

The people say Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio will announce Monday that he has chosen Carmen Farina as chancellor of the nation's largest school system.

The people were briefed on the decision but not authorized to speak publicly until de Blasio announces his choice. He has scheduled a news conference late Monday morning.

Farina is a longtime ally of de Blasio, a Democrat. She helped inform his promises to offer universal pre-kindergarten and expanded after-school programs for middle schoolers.

The 70-year-old Farina has been a New York City teacher, principal, superintendent and deputy chancellor.

The New York Times first reported the planned appointment.
