    On Monday a petition will be submitted to New York Education Commissioner David Steiner opposing the Mayor?s choice for School Chancellor. Since the announcement, there has been a fair amount of controversy surrounding the selection of Cathie Black for the city?s top education job. Mayor Bloomberg and other supporters tout her managerial experience, while others are concerned about her lack of education experience. Among the unsatisfied are 15 thousand parents, teachers, and others who signed an online petition against Black. They want Steiner to withhold a waiver that would allow her to take the job despite her lack of experience as an educator. Tom Llamas brings us more on the story.
