New York City's mayor-elect has yet to find a new schools chancellor

New York City Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, who promised in his campaign to shift away from Mayor Michael Bloomberg's education policies, has yet to pick a schools chancellor. The New York Times reports that it is proving difficult for de Blasio to find a candidate who has run a large school system in the last decade without having to close failing schools, expand charters or comply with state and federal guidelines on using tests to grade schools and teachers. All of those are hallmarks of education reforms championed by Bloomberg.
