The state supreme court has upheld the waiver issued allowing media executive Cathie Black to become the city's next schools chancellor.
Critics filed a lawsuit challenging the waiver, which was needed since Black does not have any professional education experience.
In a statement, the mayor said, "This decision should bring an end to the politicking and grandstanding and allow us all to focus on what matters most: continuing to improve the quality of education we offer New York City’s public school children. Cathie has been working hard and is ready to hit the ground running on Monday, her first official day on the job, and I know she is looking forward to building on the tremendous progress we’ve made over the past eight years."
Mayor Bloomberg also praised Black saying she is ready to hit the ground running
She's ready to hit the ground running?
Great - give her a snow shovel and tell her to start shoveling snow.
