Press Releases

On Feb. 28, 2018, news reports indicated that Mayor Bill de Blasio intends to name Alberto Carvalho, the superintendent of the Miami-Dade school system, as the new chancellor of New York City public schools, replacing outgoing Chancellor Carmen Fariña.

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

Chancellor Fariña’s leadership has led to important progress for our students. We look forward to working with Mr. Carvalho — who has had a collaborative relationship with his district’s teaching staff — to build on that progress, to further streamline and improve management, and to focus the system on initiatives that help our kids succeed.
