STATEMENT OF MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON THE STATE SUPREME COURT’S DECISION TO UPHOLD THE APPOINTMENT OF CATHLEEN BLACK AS NEW YORK CITY SCHOOLS CHANCELLOR
"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."
