Cathie Black Out as NYC Schools Chancellor After Just 3 Months& 3DAYS

After a tumultuous three months in office as schools chancellor, Cathie Black has been pushed out by Mayor Bloomberg, who initially championed her appointment.
Cathleen P. Black, a magazine executive with no educational experience who was named New York City schools chancellor last fall, stepped down Thursday, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced

Ms. Black will be replaced by Deputy Mayor Dennis M. Walcott, who has long aided the mayor in educational matters, Mr. Bloomberg announced at the news conference, at 11:30 a.m. at City Hall.

“I take full responsibility for the fact that this has not worked out as either of us had hoped or expected,” Mr. Bloomberg said. “But now it’s time to look forward, not back.”
