                                           We need a chancellor who came up from the ranks of the NYC school system-teacher, assistant principal, principal, etc. We need someone who shall NOT require a waiver to be chancellor. We need a chancellor who will tackle the following problems: Discipline, need for 600 schools for disruptive children, work-study programs, smaller class sizes, getting ATR teachers back into regular programs and NOT relegating them to substitute status, ending the Leadership Academy and removing all current Leadership Academy people who became principals. These people never taught. How can they evaluate a teacher’s performance? Could we evaluate a brain surgeon?                                         ED M. GREENSPAN- B.A., M.S., BROOKLYN COLLEGE RETIRED N.YC. TEACHER OF 32 YEARS. 19 YEARS IN DISTRICT 17 AND 13 YEARS IN DISTRICT 21.

    Mr. Greenspan makes some good points but don’t expect all of them to be implemented. Whatever leads to better learning outcomes for the majority of students is what the focus should be. the mayor is not going to remove any principal unless the school is significantly underperforming, and that usually takes four years, and never if the principal has connections. 600 schools, never happen certainly not under DeBlasio. What he offers as a contract should give you an idea, but don’t expect miracles
