Our battle is not over!

Our battle is not over! Send a new message to Commissioner Steiner to reject Cathie Black's nomination --even if there's an educator as number two.

The members of an advisory panel appointed by Commissioner Steiner have now voted against magazine executive Cathie Black being granted a waiver to become NYC schools Chancellor. They listened to the voices of parents, educators, and the majority of New Yorkers, who believe that she has none of the qualifications needed to lead the nation's largest school system.  Yet our battle is not over.  Commissioner Steiner has suggested that he may still grant a waiver for Ms. Black if the Mayor agrees to appoint an educator in the number two position.

This is not acceptable.  We need a seasoned educator at the helm, with a record of achievement in running and improving schools.  

Sign this new petition, which automatically sends a message to Commissioner Steiner.
