Come deliver the petitions with us, opposing the waiver for Cathie Black

We will be delivering over 12,000 petition signatures and thousands of comments to Commissioner Steiner, from parents and other concerned New Yorkers, about why he should deny a waiver to Cathie Black as NYC Schools Chancellor. Join us!

When: Monday, November 22 at 3:45 PM

Where: In front of Commissioner Steiner’s apartment at 200 E 87th St (betw. 2nd and 3rd Ave.) (Map here.)

The waiver will be considered by an advisory panel headed up by Susan Furhman, President of Teacher’s College, at a closed meeting on Tuesday. More info about this in the NY Times here: Panel on Pick for Schools Has Close Ties to Bloomberg

If you would like to let this advisory panel know how you feel about the waiver, you should feel free to email Dr. Furhman at

Thank you Leonie! I saw you on the news this morning and you were brilliant. On behalf of NYC students, parents, teachers and all who believe that this appointment of Cathie Black is ridiculous, thank you!
