To me, there is one simple message of the NYC Chancellor search fiasco: if you have national political ambitions, you have to support charter schools and ed tech as the path to education equity because that is what the big funders in the Democratic Party demand. New York City has been an outlier in both domains relative to other big cities ( LA, Philly, DC, Chicago etc) but under Carvahlo that would have changed. Will we get another Broad Award winner as our Chancellor, or will we preserve our outlier status? The next few weeks will be crucial. Teachers, parents, students, keep making your voices heard!
