NYC Ed. Policy Panel meets about Black

Mayor Bloomberg's push to appoint Cathie Black as the city's schools chancellor is on the fast track despite an effort to slow it down.

During a meeting Tuesday night of the city's Education Policy Panel, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer backed a move that would have blocked the mayor's authority to submit Black's name directly to the State Education Commissioner.

But that failed, so the commissioner will now get Black's name and he must decide whether to grant her a waiver because she doesn't have a background in education.
