Incoming NYC schools chief visits 2 more schools
NEW YORK -- The future head of New York City's public school system is continuing her tour of the schools she will lead.
Magazine executive Cathie Black visited two Queens elementary schools on Wednesday. The visits were closed to the media, and the Department of Education did not disclose which schools Black had visited until afterward.
Department spokeswoman Natalie Ravitz said Black visited Public School 111 and Public School 78. She was accompanied by New York State Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan and City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer.
Black visited a Bronx school on Tuesday. On Monday, the state education commissioner cleared the way for her to serve as schools chancellor by waiving the requirement that she have education credentials.
She will replace Joel Klein, who is taking a post with News Corp.
