Department of Education Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña announced on Dec. 21, 2017 that she would retire after a four-year term heading up New York City public schools.

In response, UFT President Michael Mulgrew issued the following statement:

Carmen has a lot to be proud of during her tenure. Her decades of experience in the system gave her a deep understanding of how our schools work. She managed the historic introduction of universal pre-K and oversaw significant gains in student achievement from test scores to high school graduation rates. We wish her well.
