Bloomberg’s embattled New York schools chief quits | Reuters

Maybe Bloomberg should have hired someone for the job who had some kind of experience in education administration (government would be an added bonus).

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s embattled education chief has resigned just three months after taking the job, dealing him another political setback as his approval ratings fall in his third term.

Bloomberg had named former Hearst Magazines Chairman Cathie Black as schools chancellor in November 2010, a decision roundly criticized by teachers and parents because she lacked any experience whatsoever in either education or government.

“We both agreed it is in the city’s best interest if she steps down as Chancellor,” Bloomberg told a news conference. “I take full responsibility for the fact that this has not worked out as either of us expected.”
