Asked about whether the D.O.E's chief academic officer, Shael Polakow-Suransky, will stay on, Fariña said "no personnel decisions have been made yet."
This wasn't the only polite answer she gave.
When asked about charters, Shapiro reported that Farina said that "the department will have a 'protocol' for charter schools' role in the system soon."
Political responses on the first day at work, which totally makes sense - no reason to upset any apple carts on Day One.
And with Farina appointed so late to the chancellor position, I can see where she wouldn't want to clean house at Tweed right away.
Nonetheless, if Polakow-Suransky isn't gone from Tweed by the end of the school year, we have a problem.
