Joel Klein

November 10, 2010 by staff 

Joel Klein, has served as the chancellor of schools in the city since the state gave the mayor control of the city in 2002, is to resign from office announced today. It will become a vice-president of News Corp., says the responsibility to help “in the market growing and dynamic education.” If you read the pages of New York, may have been alerted to this news. Last month, when asked the News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch (the man himself 13 most powerful in the world, according to Forbes), who he thought was the most important living in New York, called Klein.

Cathie Black, president of Hearst Magazines since 1995 (and former associate editor of New York), has been appointed as his successor. Like Klein before her, is an unorthodox choice. Klein had been engaged in public service with the Department of Justice and the Clinton White House, between seasons of private law practice. Black has never worked full time in public service or education, although his resume is impeccable: After working in New York, rose to the position of publisher in the U.S. Today and then became president and CEO of the Newspaper Association of America. She also serves on the board of IBM and Coca-Cola. And she wrote a book, Basic Black: The Essential Guide for Getting Ahead at Work (and life). “The Black elected mayor and Chancellor Klein to continue its unique experience in building on the successes and equipment leading to even greater achievements,” said a City Hall news release today, more cryptic. According to Gotham Schools, Black will be the first woman to lead the New York school system, according to Gotham Schools.
