Nearly three weeks after his election, Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has yet to decide who will run the city’s public schools.
Asked for a status update today during a rare public appearance, Mr. de Blasio offered reporters eager for any tidbits about his transition efforts few hints.
“I will say I appreciate the question. I don’t think it’s quite time to go over that,” he said, following an education speech at Columbia University. “The conversations are just being arranged now, so let us get a couple more days down the road and we’ll be in a position to give you some more.”
We wait, we wonder.
