Peter Goodman describes a “debate” of sorts in New York City, whose mayor is searching for a new chancellor to replace Carmen Farina.

Does New York City need a disruptor, like Joel Klein and Michelle Rhee, or a collaborator, following Farina’s tradition?

From what I read, the only voice in favor of a disruptor is a former official in the Bloomberg-Klein regime and the editorial writer of the New York Times.

Turmoil and instability and upheaval are not good for students, teachers, or learning.

I hope the next leader will be an experienced educator who has had experience in the classroom and as a principal and superintendent.

I hope it will be someone who knows the New York City public schools well and who is prepared to reach out to teachers and parents and students to build trust.

Please, no more disruption.
