The mystery of who will become the next New York City schools chancellor is apparently over.
The New York Times is reporting that Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio will appoint Carmen Farina over other speculated contenders — including Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Joshua P. Starr.
Farina retired in 2006 from her position as a deputy chancellor in the New York City Education Department, according to the Times article. She has also been a teacher, principal and superintendent.
For the last few months, Starr’s name arose amid speculation over who de Blasio would pick.
According to an Oct. 2 GothamSchools article, Starr said that he was “deeply committed” to his post in Montgomery County.
