City Councilman Charles Barron yesterday said he will seek a temporary restraining order to halt confirmation of Cathie Black as schools chancellor if state Education Commissioner David Steiner grants her the waiver she needs for the job.
The Brooklyn Democrat said he may follow the order with a lawsuit challenging the media executive's nomination to lead the city schools -- which may delay the process until after Chancellor Joel Klein steps down at year's end.
Maybe Klein will stick around past year's end and do his public school privatization work from inside the NYCDOE, as he has done for the last eight years.
Can you work for Murdoch's for-profit online education division and the DOE at the same time?
Dunno, but if the Barron restraining order is followed by a lawsuit, we could find out.
