Daily News: Carmen Farina Back On Chancellor List, No Decision Made Yet

Went up at 10:28 AM:

Carmen Farina, a former deputy city schools chancellor, has emerged as a leading contender for the top education job, the Daily News has learned.

Farina — an unofficial yet key education adviser to Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio — has repeatedly denied a willingness to return from retirement. This week she’s made the slight shift of refusing to answer a reporter’s questions about whether she’d consider the post.

No decision has been made yet, sources and the transition team said.

The News story says Kaya Henderson and Barbara Byrd-Bennett have been mentioned for the job but both are closely associated with school closures, a policy that de Blasio said he opposed during the mayoral campaign.
